The Giddyup Buttercup is a rather small toy horse made of metal with peeling, well-worn paint. It can be scrapped for parts, proving to be a plentiful source of screws and steel. Various Giddyup Buttercup parts can also be found throughout the Commonwealth and Appalachia.

- In Fallout 4, the various Giddyup Buttercup parts do not provide the same amount of scrap materials as a complete Giddyup Buttercup. A complete Buttercup provides 4 springs, 3 gears, 4 screws, and 5 steel with a weight of eight pounds. A head, body, two front legs, and two rear legs yield 12 springs, 8 gears, 2 screws, and 8 steel with a combined weight of ten pounds. Note that if the front and rear leg were counted as a pair of legs each, even though the model is clearly a single leg, then the totals are closer, with 8 springs, 4 gear, 2 screws, and 6 steel with a combined weight of eight pounds.
- The Fallout 3 rendition featured white paint and the Fallout 4 version featured yellow.
