” — Roach King, Fallout 3 Official Game Guide
The Roach King is a hostile inhabitant of the Capital Wasteland in 2277.
As the name suggests, the Roach King has somehow tamed
radroaches and has thus become their "king". The Roach King's throne is located northeast of Minefield and directly west of the Temple of the Union, due north of the Regulator HQ. It is made up of tires, a regular chair, a clock and a play rocket as usually found on pre-War playgrounds.
