Fantastic: A Memorable Character in Fallout: New Vegas

Fantastic is one of the many great characters in Fallout: New Vegas. The NCR scientist has his own unique personality and attitude, and his lines are so good, players keep them alive by reposting them on Reddit when the game’s mods break.

When you find and equip a labcoat while playing a Charisma build, it’s like faking it till you make it. But you’re not faking it with Fantastic, because he’s the real deal. The NCR scientist is one of the many great quest lines in the game, and his disdain for his peers, and their disdain for him, is so real.

Don’t forget the +1 CHA shades, they’re a mandatory equip. But even more important than your appearance is a good attitude, and Fantastic has that in spades. His lines are some of the best in the game, and they give character to both Fantastic and the NCR in Fallout: New Vegas.

Fantastic Facts

Here’s some fun information about Fantastic:

  • If you activate ARCHEMIDES and kill the guards at Helios 1, the Legion will take over and Fantastic will work for them. He’s so despised by the NCR staff that if you kill him, no one will object.
  • Other scientists with low intelligence ask if you’re a maker of war or peace, with the options replaced by “Warm” and “Pizza.” It’s a bit of a callback to Fallout 3’s Three Little Pigs quest.
  • It’s interesting to imagine how his meeting with the Legion went. He’s so hated by his peers that no one will care if you kill him, and he works with the Legion, who he presumably would also despise. But he’s on their side now.
  • If you activate the solar array, Fantastic will show up later at Hoover Dam. Reposting this supposedly adds a day to Todd Howard’s life, which is always a good thing.

And that’s all you need to know about Fallout: New Vegas’ Fantastic. Yes, this is Fallout: New Vegas. Reposting Fantastic’s lines on Reddit adds a day to Todd Howard’s life. Isn’t that worth clicking on this article for? We think so.
