The Toaster in The Sink was ordered to go offline when Dr. Mobius left the Think Tank. His personality back-up is recovered from a "toaster altar" in The Cuckoo's Nest. The Toaster is psychotically violent, aggressive and megalomanical, bent on destroying the Earth with atomic fire. However, he is unaware atomic fire has already rained when the Great War began. When informed that the Earth has already been destroyed, the wind is somewhat taken out of his sails, albeit briefly, before he quickly returns to his "Burn the World" agenda by threatening to bathe the world in "atomic fire....again."
Interactions with the player characterEdit
|This character is involved in quests.|
All My Friends Have Off Switches: The Toaster is one of the appliances that the Courier must retrieve a module for. The module is found in The Cuckoo's Nest, sitting on what appears to be a shrine for toasters and electric appliances.
Effects of player's actionsEdit
- If the Courier lies, claiming that his prior statement that the world had already been incinerated in atomic fire was "just a joke," Toaster will be relieved that he "isn't as redundant and useless as Muggy."
- If the Courier has good or neutral Karma, the ending slide show of Old World Blues relates that the Toaster continued to rant about how he would burn the world. After a particularly violent episode, the other appliances got tired of the Toaster and dumped him into a bathtub. In his last moments, the Toaster swears that they would "rue the day when they had bread... and no way to toast it."
- If the Courier has evil Karma, then the ending slide show shows that the Toaster, learning from the Courier, continued destroying appliances and eventually built a shrine to itself in The Cuckoo's Nest.
- The Toaster can heat up a Saturnite fist, converting it into a super-heated Saturnite fist.
- The Toaster can also convert the following small appliances into 5 energy cells and 3 microfusion cells per item:
- In addition to the energy and microfusion cells, the Toaster will return 1 scrap electronics for each toaster it receives.
- Despite having to be informed of the world's destruction, he apparently knows full well about Caesar's Legion and the NCR without any prior information.
- Even if the Courier is not carrying any toasters, but has other small appliances or Saturnite fists on their person, the option of saying, "I've got some toasters for you" will still appear. Selecting this dialogue option will open the Toaster's interface.
- "A toaster is just a death ray with a smaller power supply! As soon as I figure out how to tap into the main reactors, I will burn the world!"
- "Cursed electric heating filament! You are inadequate to my needs! Why? Why? Why was I not built with a death ray!"
- "Ahahaha! I am on-line once again! Tremble, world, before my electric heating coil of doom!"
- "You should be afraid! I am the scourge of all small appliances and the boogeyman that keeps lesser toasters awake at night!"
- "Soon, pitiful worms! Soon I will rule, and your lives will have their doneness setting turned to... darkest!"
- "Have you ever tried to indulge an all-consuming urge to kill when you don't have opposable thumbs? Or hands? Or anything other than a bread slot? You'd have a lot of pent-up anger too!"
- "Well, since I can't kill you, I guess I have to listen to your inane questions."
- "With the brains dealt with, soon we can spread our rule across the Mojave! All will eat burned toast and despair!"
- "While you were away, my plans have marched steadily forward. Beware, Caesar! Beware, NCR! Soon will dawn the Age of the Toaster!"
- -The Courier: "You know the world already burned in nuclear fire, right?"
-Toaster: "Soon I will - What? It... It did?"
- "You want some weapon schematics? I can show you some fucking weapon schematics! You want a superheated Saturnite Power Fist? I can hook that shit up!"
Behind the scenesEdit
- The Toaster is a reference to the character from the Environmental Protection Agency, a cut location intended for Fallout 2, who in turn was a reference to the 1987 movie The Brave Little Toaster by Thomas M. Disch, as well as the character from Red Dwarf named Talkie Toaster.
- The neutral/good Karma ending slide is also a reference to The Brave Little Toaster, which features a scene of the titular character falling into a filled bathtub.
