Hello! You wouldn't happen to have any small, helpless animals with you?— Gleeful Butcher

Gleeful Butcher is a Protectron operating in Helvetia as part of the Fasnacht Day festivities in 2103.


Gleeful Butcher is one of the Protectrons which was reprogrammed to spice up Fasnacht Day celebrations in Helvetia.[1][2] It is distinguishable by its red chassis and circular saw in place of its left hand.

When Fasnacht Day is being celebrated, it is one of the Protectron parade marchers which may be encountered. If it is required to march in the parade, it will be found in the first floor of the red hotel near the parade's starting location, in front of the kitchen door. It will request the player character(s) deposit 12 intestines into its cooler before it will march in the parade.

In 2102, the Gleeful Butcher wore the Fasnacht witch mask when marching in the parade. In 2103, the Protectron wears a random Fasnacht mask with an alternate color scheme.
