Ghost people are difficult to kill unless dismembered or disintegrated. If Dog is in the party, however, Dog will devour them, preventing them from getting back up.— In-game description

Ravenous Hunger is a companion perk in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Dead Money gained while Dog is a companion.


When ghost people are knocked unconscious, Dog will consume them, preventing them from regaining consciousness.


  • This is helpful before Dog teaches the Courier how to properly kill ghost people with the Ghost Hunter perk.
  • This perk doesn't appear in the Pip-Boy or in the perk menu of the G.E.C.K. (which contains all perks of the game), and appears to be a scripted action only performed by Dog and not properly a perk.
  • With the Wild Wasteland trait, Dog will sometimes say "OM NOM NOM" while eating someone.[1]
