Allow me to introduce myself. I am, Wadsworth, your personal robotic butler.”
Background[edit | edit source]
When the resident of Megaton looks to RobCo Industries to furnish them with the finest in mechanized butlers, one admirable choice is the Wadsworth model.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- His counterpart in Tenpenny Tower is Godfrey.
- If Wadsworth is ignored when greeting the Lone Wanderer, Wadsworth will mutter sarcastically (under his breath), i.e.: "How may I serve you, Master? (not that I really want to...)"

- "Two atoms are sitting in a bar. One says to the other, "I think I've lost an electron." The other asks "Are you sure?" To which the first replies, "I'm positive"."

- "I once visited a crematorium where they gave discounts to burn victims."
- "I was going to attend the clairvoyant's meeting, but it was canceled due to unforeseen events."

Appearances[edit | edit source]
Wadsworth appears only in Fallout 3.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
- The joke, "War does not determine who is right - only who is left." is a quote from Bertrand Russell.
- His name could be a reference to Tim Curry's character "Wadsworth The Butler" in the movie Clue. In the movie "Wadsworth" is a rather cynical butler with a distinctive English accent.
Bugs[edit | edit source]
Sometimes Wadsworth will stay in the player's bedroom, or get stuck on the player's bed, preventing the player from entering and using their bed. Shooting Wadsworth only once may make him move to try and attack back, however quickly holstering the weapon will make him friendly again.
- He can also become stuck at the top of the stairs, but in this case can usually be pushed out of the way without causing a fight.
Sometimes if the player is not aligned with Wadsworth's eyes while getting a haircut, half of players face will be cut off from the screen. Crouching may result in the screen showing the player's pelvic area.
- Also, if the player is crouched while wearing the Chinese stealth armor, or gets their haircut with a Stealth Boy active, nothing will appear where the players face would be.
- When speaking with him, it is possible that the combination of the focus-changing animation and his movement may result in the PC occupying the same space as him.
- If you kill Wadsworth, he will re-animate at a later date. Upon doing so, he could "straighten up" your house, resulting in loss of some items in your home, including items stored in lockers.
- If you quick save, disintegrate Wadsworth with a critical shot from a plasma weapon, and then reload, he will be reassembled with his body components randomly jumbled.
