Bears are animals from before the Great War.


Several mutated species of bear have come to roam the wastes following the war. Bears typically inhabited forested areas of North America, but occasionally transitioned into grassy plain, alpine and tundra regions.[1]


Depending on species, bears stand between six and eight feet tall and weigh several hundred pounds. Despite their large size, they are capable of traveling at impressive speeds. Coupled with their great strength, bears are able hunters. They have an omnivorous diet, ranging from large game and fish to berries and roots. They are naturally territorial creatures and often compete with other bears for their territory. Their territory serves as hunting grounds and contains their den for shelter and winter hibernation.

Main article: Yao guai

Yao guai are a descendant of black bears, common in Appalachia, the Capital Wasteland, the Commonwealth and Zion Canyon. These mutated bears are vicious predators that attack nearly anything on sight.



Grizzly and brown bears are mentioned in Fallout 2, Fallout: New Vegas, and in the Fallout 4 add-on Nuka-World, Fallout 76. Yao guai variants appear in Fallout 3, the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Honest Hearts, Fallout 4, and Fallout 76.
