These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Goddamned Bats: Desert Dwellers, Radioactive Vermin, Wasteland Warriors and other random encounters on the world map, which just love to bother you when you're trying to rest your party after a tough battle at Base Cochise.
Memetic Mutation: Turning enemies into "a fine red mist" and "exploding them like a blood sausage."
Notably, the game's Spiritual Successor series Fallout references nearly every memorable joke or gag from Wasteland at least once per game, to the point that many people mis-attribute them to the Fallout series.
