Cut character interaction

- Report Iguana Bob to the Hub police
- Rescue Jason Zimmerman

Additional unnamed cut quests include:

- A Brotherhood spy quest.
- A quest to deliver (perhaps unwittingly) a bomb to a Follower named Jake (you can ask Nicole about him).
- A mini-quest involving Billy and Dan in the Hub, which has been fully scripted but seemingly does not work.
- Hernandez, a man of mucho gusto, a gambler with a foolproof system.
- Vasquez Villanova Hernandez Ortega, a mercenary desperado.

The following are post mutant invasion:
- Children of the Cathedral guard

Most cathedral NPCs give you only a small part of their dialogue. A good example is Viola, who has many lines that cannot be accessed. So it's hard to tell if actually any NPCs were completely removed.
- Dominic - "A strange energy flares from his eyes."
- Wiggup - "Small sparks of energy flow over his body," likely Wiggum.
The Thinker Nightkins
There are some MSG files for a type of random encounter that was never fully implemented: people from a nearby location who had significant amounts of dialogue, depending on one's rep there, could give news or lead to their base.
Cut location content
- A gang war in the Boneyard, with the Blades as a regular gang instead of a bunch of wimps and Tangler as a big bad boss of the Rippers (you can hear about them in some tell-me-abouts). Related quests to join the Blades, stop the gangs from attacking Adytum, and rescue Zimmerman's son (Jason, not Josh) from the Rippers.
The body has this description "This body might be some kind of genetic experiment."
- GLOWCAGE.MSG - "It appears as though this cage contained lab animals for testing. Somehow, the bars have been torn off."
- GLWBOX.MSG - "This looks to be the footlocker of some guards."
- GLOWDESK.MSG - a locked desk of papers
- GLOWTABL.MSG - a table in a mess
- Finding a key in Vault 15 meant for... who knows what.
- Finding the remains of an ambushed caravan along with the corpse of a Vault 13 scout named Sean, who turned super mutant.
- Happy endings for the Followers of the Apocalypse (with a picture showing an unbroken wall) and the Hub (with a picture showing Iguana Bob Frazier), and mutant invasion endings for Junktown and the Brotherhood of Steel (with a picture showing a super mutant).
- In-game effects of mutant invasions of the Followers, Hub, Brotherhood, Junktown, and Shady Sands.
- A clue index, mostly serving as reminders of known information, and a function to store video clips in the Pip-Boy.
- An unused "fire dance" death animation for children and midgets.
