Notable childrenEdit


  • These children have sprites for throwing, which means they are also capable of throwing grenades.
  • In the Fallout 1 versions of the game released outside of the US (including the GOG release), the children were removed to avoid a controversy about childkilling. However, the children can still be killed with explosives as only their sprites were removed.


These children appear in Fallout and Fallout 2.
