Hi. I've seen the Fallout-Boy somewhere else ... i think it was a RPGish game where you trained some unlikely (unlikely indeed) Super-Heroes in a partly flooded city. Though i can't remember what the name was or who's the publisher. --unpaid lamer

If he appeared in a game, it must have been published by Interplay, although none of the ones I know fit the description. Ausir 16:48, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
That was my guess, too. Though i couldn't find any hints in that direction. --unpaid lamer
I only know that he appears in Run Like Hell, but it's clearly not it. Ausir 22:56, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

Because they are in two different countries so I Don't think B* even know the advert exists. - RASIC 16:36, September 11, 2009 (UTC)

I can't figure out the proper formatting for the change I just made. Help?

Images[edit source]

The Vault Boy images are so freaking cool. I think there should be a gallery on the main page with all of them. All of the one's from the perks etc. I know it's a big undertaking, but the Vault-Boy pics are epic. I mean look at the Pip-Boy pick that goes with Lincoln's Repeater!! Why are these pics not on this wiki!!??? (I'd do it myself but I only have 360 version)...V.A.T.S. addict 01:39, April 9, 2010 (UTC)

I agree, Vault Boy is as important to fallout like the 10 mm pistol, i mean it's technically the face of all and any fallout games existing and to come, but it looks like nobody cares :(, he even could replace this UGLY background the wiki has,

Inspiration[edit source]

He looks a lot like the male characters on Number Twelve Looks Just Like You which is an episode of the The Twilight Zone. The Episode is about a future where everyone undergoes a transformation to look beautiful so it's unrelated to the Post-Apocalyptic world of Fallout, but they look exactly alike almost with the swoosh hair thing and the way the sideburns are trimmed.--Skipbomber 02:55, April 20, 2011 (UTC)

Female Counterpart[edit source]

Do you think it's worth mentioning the Vault Boy's female counterpart. I'm not sure if she has an official name, but "Vault Girl" would be accurate. Anyway, Vault Girl has appeared in many Fallout Perks and traits, such as, Empathy, Black Widow, and Action Girl. In fact, most of images that don't contain the Vault Boy, contain the Vault Girl instead (like Action Girl, or Cherchez La Femme). Do you think we should mention her in the Vault boy's page, or should the Vault girl recive her own page? I seem to have just embarrased myself by not reliseing the Vault Boy's female counterpart already had a page. I must have missed when they added it.--KayO199X 21:11, July 29, 2011 (UTC)

Split discussion[edit source]

Since Pip-Boys were standard issue in vaults, it makes sense that Vault-Tec had their mascot in the Pip-Boy. Therefore, there is no functional difference between Vault Boy and the Pip-Boy characters, making a split unwarranted. --Kastera (talk) 02:13, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

They are not the same character.--Ant2242 (talk) 02:26, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
Explain how they're not. The Pip-Boy characters and Vault Boy look exactly the same; they're sometimes wearing different outfits. You can't honestly say that this guy from the Vault Dweller Survival Guide and this guy from a Pip-Boy are two different characters. --Kastera (talk) 02:46, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
That guy is the Vault Boy. This guy is the PIP-Boy. --Ant2242 (talk) 04:53, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
Oh, I see what your issue is now! You're referring to Pip-Boy as another character; I thought you meant the mascot in Vault-Tec publications and the mascot in Pip-Boy illustrations were different people. So really, we don't need to split the page; we might just need to add another page. Although I don't know if PIP-Boy is notable enough to have his own page. I think saying he appears on the Pip-Boy 2000 page would be enough. --Kastera (talk) 05:12, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

Maybe transclusion and a good image?--Ant2242 (talk) 05:20, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
