** You can even encounter him with the real Preston Garvey as your companion, though it doesn't change anything.


*** Back on Takahashi himself, there's the meta-humor in the fact that he's voiced by none other than Creator/ShinjiMikami. Yes, the creator of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil'' is in ''Fallout''...and they only gave him one line of dialog.





* Speaking of mods, a [[https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/475/ couple]] of [[https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/11580 modders]] were inspired by the E3 presentation to take [[EarWorm Atom Bomb Baby]] ''literally'' by replacing the Mini-Nuke's model(s) with [[BlackComedy baby Shaun]]. The first, done before most mod tools were released, simply replaces the projectile. The second, done more recently, takes this UpToEleven by not only replacing ''all'' the related models, but also reorients model so it lies down in the Fat Man. For an even darker shade of black comedy, the latter also offers a second mod that does the same replacement to the Mini Nuke carried by Super Mutant Suiciders - resulting in said Super Mutants running around, while carrying a baby like a football.

* When you meet Curie in Vault 81, she repeatedly prompts you with the question if you're a representative from Vault-Tec. It quickly becomes obvious that this isn't just ButThouMust, Curie ''really'' wants to finally leave the lab and just wants you to play along and give her the authorization she needs.
-->'''Curie''': Are you Vault-Tec security? \\
'''Sole Survivor''': Do I look like Vault-Tec security? \\
'''Curie''': Over the long years, who is to say what is fashionable now? ...Now, please tell me you are authorized to release me from the lab. \\
'''Sole Survivor''': Heck no, I'm just a guy looking for the cure to a mysterious disease. \\
'''Curie''': You're quite certain? Perhaps you just misplaced your papers. In fact papers are not strictly necessary, no? \\
'''Sole Survivor''': I said I'm not with them. \\
'''Curie''': My audio circuits must be malfunctioning. I distinctly heard you say "yes". I will open the door.


* Speaking of robots, one of the early-game settlements is a former hippie co-op farm whose owners were apparently associated with the Robot Liberation Front, currently populated by feral ghouls and radroaches and one Stoner-esque "Liberated" Mr. Handy named "Professor Goodfeels". Apparently, the former occupants attempted to "liberate" him by resetting his core motivational programming to "Just Be". "Grooooooovyyy!"]] Better yet? You can reprogram him to go into combat mode to help you clear out the town. His voice stays the same, but he shouts "Exterminate!", making him sound like a [[Series/DoctorWho stoner Dalek]].
* For radio DJ's, we've had [[SoulBrotha Three Dog]] in ''Fallout 3'' and [[BadassBaritone Mr. New Vegas]] in ''Fallout New Vegas''. In Fallout 4? We've got Travis Miles, a shy and awkward young man who ''clearly'' isn't cut out for the job, at least until you complete his personal quest.

* The Treasures of Jamaica Plain. Upon arriving in the town, your companions tell you in hushed tones that the town is notorious for an amazing hidden treasure that lies somewhere within. Every so often, you come across the bodies of Raiders and Gunners who have died trying to force their way through all the feral ghouls to perform the heist of the century. You make your way to the town hall, wherein you can find terminals outlining the amazing cost of building the bunker that the treasure will be hidden in. A hi-tech laser system requiring key-card access to disable prevents you from accessing the bunker doors. Hacking the terminal to access the antechamber activates Protectrons that try to gun you down. And throughout all of this, your companions remark in amazement that whatever has necessitated this kind of protection must be impressive indeed. Eventually, painfully, you limp your way to a button that will open the doors which will reveal the grand treasures of Jamaica Plain. Trembling with anticipation, you press it... and it turns out to be a hokey local time capsule.]]

* If you help her improve the Hull, the Mariner eventually gives a quest where she asks for help with hunting down and slaying a creature known as the Red Death, a legendary sea monster said to make Deathclaws look tame by comparison. It's a beast that's haunted The Mariner's dreams since she was a child, but now she wants to make her home safe from the Red Death once and for all, and she needs your help in doing that. She tells you to prepare yourself for the biggest fight of your life, you get in your boat and set out for the beast's lair, reach its little island surrounded by shipwrecks, and...find a teeny, tiny little Mirelurk with glowing red eyes, closer in size to a pre-war crab than a sea monster, who goes down in one hit.]] Suffice to say, the Sole Survivor found the whole reveal hilarious.

* Nuka-Town USA is home to N.I.R.A., a bottle-shaped information robot who, due to a couple of tech-savvy raiders in the mood for a practical joke, switches between pleasant greetings and vulgar insults or threats. And if you kill her, you can loot her to add her torso to your robot armor mods for ''Automaton''. That's right, you can have your own army of friendly but deadly N.I.R.A.s!]]

** The ride is nothing more than a centrifuge that spins its passengers for a minute or so, though it's lacking some fusion cores when you find it. Put in three of the things like Hubbell asks and the Hubologists will experience visions (while one tries not to vomit), before thanking you and beginning the hopeless task of turning a theme park attraction into a spaceship. There's room for ''four'' fusion cores, though... and if you overcharge the thing before the Hubologists do their test run, it'll spin so fast that their heads will explode from the G-forces.]] And Gage will love it.

** At the Diner in the Galleria, there's a terminal that relates the restaurant's three guiding principles along with a note from the programmer that directives like these usually turn out badly when robots interpret them. The First Rule is "Serving you is our goal!" After you speak to the waiterbot and are seated he asks you "Would you like to be diced, smashed, or fried?" Note the wording and answer carefully. Using a mod that shows you the actual text of the answers, one of the answers to that question is "I'm not hungry anymore" and all three of the others are "Wait, what?"
