You see your sixth toe. It is a small mutated part of yourself. For some reason, you feel a terrible sense of loss as you look at the tiny amputated toe.
” — In-game description
mutated toe is a miscellaneous item in
In order to acquire the mutated toe, the Chosen One must spend a certain amount of time in toxic waste without protection, causing the mutation to occur. The toe can then be removed and acquired in a medical center equipped with an Auto-Doc.
It is important to note that having a mutated, unremoved toe will result in failure of the Vault City citizenship test.
Some non-player characters claim the toe is a one-hit K.O. device for destroying Frank Horrigan, but that is only a joke, although it does lower his max HP by 3 points.
In a rather humorous note, the game responds with "You just ate your fucking toe!", whenever it is consumed.
The lump of brain in the Fallout 3 add-on makes a direct reference with "you feel a terrible sense of loss." The Point Lookout cure research note in also makes reference to the item.
