Because one dog ain't enough, and two is too low, it's me, Three Dog! How you kids handlin' Post-Apocalyptia today?

— Three Dog

Three Dog is the radio host, DJ, and news anchor of the Galaxy News Radio station in the Capital Wasteland in 2277, playing the music that he could find.

Background

Born to parents who made their way in the world as members of a traveling theater group, Three Dog grew up listening to rock music, hating the government that he never knew (but surely caused the nuclear holocaust), fully believing in the rights of free speech and communal law.[1][2] At some point before he established GNR, he was taking Jet and stumbled across Oasis.[3]

He established GNR in 2272, together with a technician named Margaret.[4] Since he began, he's been broadcasting to the Wasteland with his voice, public service announcements, and music. At times he makes jests at Enclave Radio, going as far as mocking President John Henry Eden.[5] Three Dog believes in what he calls 'fighting the good fight', which boils down to noble pursuits in the fight against raiders, super mutants, slavers, Talon Company, and the Enclave. This explains why he cooperates with Lyons' Brotherhood of Steel.

Notes

  • Evidently, his broadcasts are pre-recorded. He can be viewed at the G.N.R. building, not doing anything of note, but still his public service announcements or other news can still be heard on the radio. This is further supported by the fact that he can be heard on the radio at any time during the day. Additionally, he often says in his introduction "coming to you taped from my fortified bunker in the middle of a DC hellhole" though he also will say "coming to you live".
  • If the Lone Wanderer helps Roy Phillips get into Tenpenny Tower, Three Dog later refers to the "wholesome slaughter" of the former residents, instead of the common expression "wholesale slaughter."
  • Three Dog's broadcast expression can change depending on the actions of the Lone Wanderer. Should the Lone Wanderer pursue a noble, good-karma path, Three Dog will say "Nice goin' kid!" at the end of an event-determined broadcast. But should the Lone Wanderer choose a vilified, bad-karma path, Three Dog is quoted as saying "Not cool kid. Not cool at all." Or, "what's with that, kid?"

Notable quotes

  • "Because one dog ain't enough, and two is too low, it's me, Three Dog! How you kids handlin' Post-Apocalyptia today?"

  • "Hey everybody, this is Three Dog, your friendly neighborhood disc jockey. What's a "disc"? Hell if I know. But I'm gonna keep talkin' anyway."

  • "Now what if I, the all-powerful Three Dog, were to tell you that somewhere right here in the Capital Wasteland, there’s a place with LOTS of trees."

  • "People of the Capital Wasteland! It is I, Three Dog, your ruler! Hear me, and obey! Oh, sorry, that's that OTHER radio station."

  • "Hey nifty America. It's me, your president, John Hen... Ahhhh... Gotcha! Three Dog here! How's everyone doin'?"

  • "The Enclave, and that includes their Homecoming King, "President" John Henry Eden and his gorilla Colonel Augustus Autumn, are NOT here to help you."

Appearances

Three Dog appears in Fallout 3 and Fallout Shelter, and is mentioned in Fallout 4.[6]

Behind the scenes

  • The name of the character Three Dog comes from a previous character played by his voice actor Erik Todd Dellums, called "Dog 3".
  • Three Dog shares similarities to very many DJ characters from movies and real life, Wolfman Jack chief among them.
  • Gearbox Software's FPS-RPG Borderlands 2 references Three Dog with a three-barrel shotgun titled 'Thre Dog'. The weapon's description states that '...one barrel ain't enough, and two is too few'.

Bugs

  • PCIcon pc.png PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png Occasionally, Three Dog will mention events that occur after the ending of the game. He will only do so if the player had downloaded the Broken Steel downloadable content and has not played through the part in the game before it.
  • PCIcon pc.png PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png Sometimes after starting a new game, Three Dog can be heard stating things that haven't come to pass yet. This can be very annoying as it usually lasts the entire game or until you catch up with what he's talking about.
  • PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png Sometimes Three dog will start saying a comment and then quickly switch comments about the player over and over again. This can be annoying and not allow you to listen to music for the rest of the game.
  • PCIcon pc.png PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Occasionally Three dog will repeat the "News" section of broadcast 2-3 times over until he will continue playing songs again.

    Born to parents who made their way in the world as members of a traveling theater group, Three Dog grew up listening to rock music, hating the government that he never knew (but surely caused the nuclear holocaust), fully believing in the rights of free speech and communal law. He is fully committed to "spreading the signal" of his radio station to anyone who will listen; it's his duty to counter the propaganda spouted by the Enclave on their station."

  2. The Lone Wanderer: "I wish I could have met your parents. I bet they were... interesting."
    Three Dog: "Parents? Ha! I was born from the sun and have sand in my veins. Ha ha! Just messing with you. My parents were very cool. They preached all about the haters and their bullshit... how to tell the propaganda from the real deal."

  3. Galaxy News Radio: "Here's a question for all you faithful listeners. Have you guys and gals ever seen... a tree? No, no, no. Not those shriveled black things. I’m talking real trees. Brown bark, green leaves, photosynthesis, all that good stuff. Now what if I, the all-powerful Three Dog, were to tell you that somewhere right here in the Capital Wasteland, there’s a place with LOTS of trees. A veritable Oasis of green in that depressing sea of brown. Look, it was years ago, and I MAY have been experimenting with Jet at the time, but I’m telling you, it’s out there..."
    (Three Dog's dialogue)
  4. Galaxy News Radio: "Good golly, Holly. This is the worst thing to happen to our neighborhood since the HOA instituted their mandatory "scavenged rags" dress code. From Rivet City to downtown D.C., the Enclave is on the scene and setting up shop. Children, I don't care if you've ignored every other word that's come out of my mouth for the past five years. Please. Hear me now, and believe. The Enclave, and that includes their Homecoming King, "President" John Henry Eden and his gorilla Colonel Augustus Autumn, are NOT here to help you. Wake up, children the Enclave have a giant truck full 'o Brahmin, and they've been spoon-feeding you the bullshit. These guys are schemers, crooks, and killers, and the sooner you all realize that and stand up to their oppression, the better. That, my friends, is fighting the good fight."
