FalloutShelterAppleStoreLogoThe following is based on Fallout Shelter and some details might contradict canon.

Feral ghouls are enemies seen in Fallout Shelter. They are physically seen in game during invasion in the vault and on quests. They deal radiation damage and regular damage.


Feral ghouls are encountered during quests, out in the wasteland and as invaders in your vault like raiders and deathclaws. Although, they are frail on their own, they attack the vaults in large packs effectively compensating for solitary weakness.

The glowing ones act as boss characters during quests. Not only do they constantly deal radiation damage to the dwellers due to their glowing appearance, they can also use an ability that mirrors the ones in Fallout 4, which causes heavy radiation damage to dwellers while healing and revive other ghouls in the battle (including the decapitated ones).
