Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition

The Roach King is a hostile inhabitant of the Capital Wasteland in Fallout 3.

Background[edit | edit source]

As the name suggests, the Roach King has somehow tamed radroaches and has thus become their "king". The Roach King's Throne is located northeast of Minefield and directly west of Temple of the Union, due north of the Regulator HQ. It is made up of tires, a regular chair, a clock and a play rocket as usually found on playgrounds.[1]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Roach King does not have a fixed gender or appearance, meaning his/her appearance is random every time.
  • Unlike many special characters, the Roach King is not noticeably more durable than normal, having about as much health as a standard heavy-weapons raider. He or she wields a minigun, which is normally not carried by raiders. The King's default wastelander outfit is also weaker armor than standard raider armor.
  • Oddly if The Roach King is a female its name still is called The Roach King.
  • The Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year edition p.93 entry for him reads: "Kheee! First, build throne. Then take rocket. Kheee! Some of my shiny friends help me. What time is it? Scuttle-and-bustle time. Kheee! The sun is hot. But the throne is cool. Khee-akaahhh-kuhhh... oh, me insides don’t feel right. Sleepy time. Kheee!"

Appearances[edit | edit source]

The Roach King appears only in Fallout 3.
