A zombie is an undead corpse, typically devoid of a soul and with no free will, originating from Voodoo beliefs. In the Fallout world, the term generally refers to Ghouls, who very much resemble the zombies of pre-War horror films,[1][2] often as a derogatory remark. Also used to describe feral ghouls.[3]

Examples of use[edit | edit source]

The first appearance of the word in Fallout was when it was used by Set's ghoul gangsters to refer to themselves,[4] and was pejoratively used towards Children of the Cathedral cultists.[5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12] However their were rumors of both the ghouls and their origins circulating prior to 2161.[13]

In Fallout 2, the Chosen One can call Wooz a zombie, which appears to deeply offend him.[14]

In Fallout 3, most ghouls are very offended by the term. It is commonly used by the bigots who live at Tenpenny Tower, and calling Roy Phillips or Mister Crowley a zombie may lead them to attack you. Mister Crowley will hire you to kill supposed ghoul bigots by shooting them in the head like they do in old zombie movies.[15][16][17][18][19][20][21][22][23]

In Fallout: New Vegas, zombie isn't thrown around as much as in Fallout 3, but the player does use zombie to insult and threaten Grecks into giving up caps for Francine Garret, and Raul Tejada uses zombie in referring to a nickname of his.[24]

  1. The Lone Wanderer: "All true, except for the part about the mutants, the water and the whore."
    Crowley: "Ha, ha! I like a human that knows his place. Too many of you think we're all just zombies. They don’t know, or don’t care, that we’re just as human as they are inside. We bleed! We hurt! We regret! And you know what really pisses me off? They think the only way to kill us is to shoot us in the head, like in the old zombie stories, and that will put us out of our misery. Hey, I know! Maybe you could help me even the score."
    (Crowley's dialogue)
  2. The Lone Wanderer: "Jesus Christ! What are you?"
    Winthrop: "Now tell me, how is it that you ended up down here in Ghoul central without knowing what a Ghoul is? Huh? You know, never mind. I'm a Ghoul. Everyone down here: Ghouls. That's what we are. And before you ask "what's a Ghoul", lemme tell you. We're not the walking dead, despite the rotten flesh and the smell. We're mutants... sort of. At least, I think we are."
    The Lone Wanderer: "Wait... what are you again?"
    Winthrop: "You got wax in your ears? We're Ghouls mutants with rotting flesh. It's not a big deal, I got used to it. So will you. You know, nevermind. I'm a Ghoul. Everyone down here: Ghouls. That's what we are. And before you ask "what's a Ghoul", lemme tell you. We're not the walking dead, despite the rotten flesh and the smell. We're mutants... sort of. At least, I think we are."

    "{206}{}{These people, these zombies, weren't always like this. I could even stand a few of them. Then they got converted. Some of them came out like this. Some of them didn't come out at all. Ton doesn't like it, but these people pay Ton well.}"

    "{148}{}{I dunno. I can tell you one thing, whatever you can say about the religion, they're not amateurs. They came in and organized this place like clockwork. This isn't just another band of mindless zombies.}"

  15. The Lone Wanderer: "Milk sucking? You shuffle stepping, brain eating, grave loving zombie!"
    Crowley: "Another human bigot. It figures. Go mate with a Super Mutant."
    (Crowley's dialogue)
  16. The Lone Wanderer: "Maybe. I don't know if I trust you."
    Crowley: "The feeling's mutual, smoothskin. But that never stopped a business deal. A lot of you humans are bigots. You don't like Ghouls and treat us like zombies, calling us brain eaters and shufflers. Well, they're going to pay. Uh...before I get into the details, you don't have anything against killing do you?"
    (Crowley's dialogue)
  17. The Lone Wanderer: "Okay. What's the plan?"
    Crowley: "Not everyone is as sympathetic to Ghouls as you are. In fact some humans are downright bigots. They treat us like zombies, calling us brain eaters and shufflers. Well, I'm going to make them pay. Uh...before I get into the details, you don't have anything against killing do you?"
    (Crowley's dialogue)
  18. The Lone Wanderer: "What can you tell me about Mister Crowley?"
    Greta: "He's an odd one. Why just a few months ago he decided he didn't like people calling us zombies. No Ghoul likes to be called a zombie, but Crowley was going up to humans and almost daring them to do it."
    (Greta's dialogue)
  19. The Lone Wanderer: "I know what a Ghoul is. Now get away from me, zombie."

  20. The Lone Wanderer: "Touch me and I yell zombie."
    Barrows: "My dear friend, yelling "zombie" in Underworld would be like yelling "sand" in a desert. Pointless. Obviously, you take no appreciation in what I am trying to achieve. Please, leave me be. I have much to do."
    (Barrows' dialogue)
  21. The Lone Wanderer: "She your new toy, zombie?"
    Barrows: "That kind of talk is uncalled for. I was, am and always will be a doctor of medicine. I don't care if she was a Super Mutant. I'd still help her. If they hauled your sorry, shot-up body into my clinic, I'd try and save you too."
    (Barrows' dialogue)
  22. The Lone Wanderer: "Yeah sure, I'm here for everything you got. Hand it over, zombie!"
    Murphy: "No! No way! You're not taking the formula from me!"
    (Murphy's dialogue (Fallout 3))
  23. The Lone Wanderer: "Stop trying to talk your way out of this, zombie!"
    Murphy: "What the hell is your problem? Fine! You're gonna be like that..."
    (Murphy's dialogue (Fallout 3))
  24. The Courier: "Where'd you get that Vaquero outfit?"
    Raul Tejada: "I found it in a costume shop. It was sort of my calling card, you know? "Raul the Ghoul, the zombie vaquero of Mexico City.""
