Bet they don't have anything as nasty as Yao Guai out where you come from, huh?Follows-Chalk

Yao guai are a species of mutated American black bear. These creatures can be found in Zion Canyon in 2281, and include a unique quest-based yao guai named Ghost of She.

CharacteristicsEdit

BiologyEdit

This section is transcluded from Yao guai. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

Yao guai are large, ursine animals that are descended from the bears that lived across America before the war. Due to their zombie-like appearance, yao guai may be the bear equivalent of a ghoul. This is further supported by Ruzka, the only yao guai in Point Lookout, who seems to be a ghoulifed pre-War circus bear judging by the ball and the poster found in her lair.

The yao guai of Zion Canyon seem to be visually identical to the yao guai of the Capital Wasteland and the Commonwealth, but larger.

Gameplay attributesEdit

Yao guai are extremely fast and powerful creatures, second only to deathclaws in terms of raw strength and speed. Unlike deathclaws, they are less alert; the player may come in contact with one when it is asleep or laying down. Yao guai do not attack bighorners in Zion Canyon. This may appear uncharacteristic, but is consistent with real predators that do not unnecessarily exhaust their food supply.

Unlike the yao guai found in Fallout 3, the Animal Friend perk does not affect them; they will become hostile towards the player character upon detection.

Giant yao guaiEdit

Yao guai

Giant yao guai are larger versions of yao guai. A giant yao guai can easily kill a low-level player if they're not careful. Early in the Honest Hearts add-on, a giant yao guai attacks and kills a green gecko on top of a rock while the player approaches the Dead Horses camp. A few of these can be found near the Red Gate.
