You've got the "right" stuff. Members of the opposite sex are attracted to you, but those of the same sex tend to become quite jealous.— In-game description

Sex Appeal is a trait in Fallout 2 and a cut trait in Fallout.

Effects[edit | edit source]

This trait improves reaction towards the protagonist of members of the opposite sex. Unfortunately, this trait also worsens the reaction of members of their own. This trait does not factor into the interactions with non-human characters, meaning that no bonus will be gained with a female ghoul as a male character.

Although this often factors into sexual encounters the character may have, this trait can apply to many things happening throughout the game.

Through the reaction mechanic, this trait will also affect the prices received from shopkeepers. Since most shopkeepers are male, female characters may benefit greatly from this. Likewise, a male character will receive a slight increase in price from male shopkeepers. Of course, they will reap the benefits of a discount from (the few) female ones.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • In the German version of Fallout 2, this trait is replaced by Night Person, even though it has the same image. This is most likely due to a translation error, as Fallout has the Night Person trait on exactly the same text position.

  • This trait does not exist in the game but an image of a Vault Boy named "SEXAPPL" can be found in the game files of the Fallout demo. Otherwise, benefits, prerequisites, and descriptions are unknown.
