| ||For more information on the historical figure, see Elvis Presley on Wikipedia.|
Elvis Aaron Presley was an extremely popular American singer of the 20th century. A cultural icon, he is widely known by the single name "Elvis." He is often referred to as the "King of Rock and Roll" or simply "The King." As time had progressed from the Great War, Elvis is merely another semiotic ghost of American culture that is often referred to but, as the Kings exemplify, has been completely forgotten as a person.
His presence is more prominent in Fallout: New Vegas with references to his songs and movies in quest names as well as an entire gang known as The Kings who idolize Elvis and have styled themselves after him. The Kings themselves do not know of Elvis' name, which is why they simply called themselves the Kings.
The Enclave membership questionnaire at the Whitespring bunker in Fallout 76 lists Elvis as a possible answer to the question "Which of the following thinkers' belief systems most closely matches your own?" An exam at the Pioneer Scout camp lists Elvis as the correct answer to who the King of Rock and Roll was in the Fallout 76 Wild Appalachia update.
- King's School of Impersonation in the Mojave Wasteland is an Elvis impersonation school, where the Kings are located. In addition, their leader, The King, is based on Elvis.
- During the development of Fallout: New Vegas, developers were unable to obtain performance rights to Elvis' songs as they proved too costly.
- Jason Bergman also commented that "We felt we were better off getting a wide variety of music than getting a single Elvis song."
