Originally named by the descendants of those held in Chinese internment camps before the Great War, the Yao Guai is a ferocious mutated bear.

Fallout 4 loading screen

Yao guai are a species of mutated bears that inhabit the Commonwealth and Far Harbor in 2287.

BackgroundEdit

The name comes from the Chinese term "yao guai", which translates to "monster" or "demon". The name was given to the creature by the descendants of the Chinese that were living in internment camps during the Great War.

CharacteristicsEdit

BiologyEdit

The yao guai is a mutated bear of debatable origin species in the Commonwealth. Possibly mutated from the black bears native to the region, these yao guai are generally larger than their unmutated predecessors and are more aggressive. The physical build of the Commonwealth variant does not seem to drastically deviate from pre-War bears as much as the yao guai in the Capital Wasteland and Zion Canyon. Comparatively, they are overall less dog-like in their posture and movement, sport thicker patches of fur, and more body fat. Since their upper body, chest, and arms are not as massive, the Commonwealth yao guai have a more traditional bear-like posture and gait.

Gameplay attributesEdit

Although generally found alone, yao guai exhibit a gentle, familial bond toward one another when found together, provided they do not feel threatened by the observer's presence. Yao guai will attack nearly any other creature or person they encounter, including deathclaws.

They seem to appear as often during the daytime as they do during the night time. This is a primary difference between the Commonwealth yao guai compared to the Capital Wasteland variants which are more nocturnal in nature.

These creatures also have the ability to cause, unlike their Capital Wasteland counterparts, the staggering effect on every of their attacks, even if the player character is quick enough to block them. For this reason, melee fighting against yao guai might be difficult, specially with slow weapons such as the super sledge, and if fighting against a group. Attacks must be properly timed, otherwise the player character might get stuck in the stagger effect, giving yao guai enough time to strike once again.

VariantsEdit

Stunted yao guaiEdit

Fo4 stunted yao guai

Not as physically imposing as normal yao guai due to minor malformations, past injuries, or arrested development. As a result, they are less of a threat compared to other variants. Wherever they are found with another yao guai it is usually one with a similar affliction.
