Red Menace is a Pip-Boy game tape in Fallout 4, which serves as propaganda against Chinese communists forces. It was published by Vault-Tec Game Studios in 2053.


Selectable as a playable game on the Pip-Boy 3000 Mark IV, on the Inventory, Misc tab. The player must rescue Vault Girl from an anthropomorphic Chinese Flag by dodging bombs and jumping barrels while climbing the stairs, similar to Donkey-Kong and Donkey-Kong JR.


The game can be found on the Vault 111 recreational terminal in the cafeteria.


  • The evil Chinese propaganda character is seen on an issue of the Capitol Post in the official Fallout 3 trailer, in an article about Chinese forces invading Alaska.
  • The only power up in the game resembles a suit of power armor, it behaves very similar to the hammer from the game's real-life counterpart.
  • The top 10 people on the terminal where the holotape is found are mostly console commands.
  • This is the only holotape minigame that doesn't come from reading a RobCo Fun magazine, but from a terminal.
