Yao guai are creatures found in Appalachia.

Characteristics[]

Biology[]

The physical build of the Appalachian variant does not seem to drastically deviate from pre-War bears as much as the yao guai in the Capital Wasteland and Zion Canyon. Comparatively, they are overall less dog-like in their posture and movement and sport thicker patches of fur and more body fat. Since their upper body, chest and arms are not as massive, the Appalachian yao guai have a more traditional bear-like posture and gait. These yao guai are generally larger than their unmutated predecessors and are more aggressive.

Gameplay attributes[]

When yao guai are encountered, there are typically two or three in the area. Yao guai can outrun a player character unless the player character is sprinting. They have a powerful melee attack, and their strikes frequently stun the player character for a few seconds. They will pursue a player character into an open sided shed but not into a shed or building with a doorway, even if the doorway is open. When the player character enters the building, they will retreat to the edge of the area; when they detect the player character exiting the building, they will again pursue. They are sensitive to explosives and flamers.

Locations[]

Named yao guai[]

Notes[]

  • Yao guai are a potential candidate for taming. If found alone in a random encounter, the player character can send the tamed beast to their C.A.M.P. for defense.
  • The yao guai's melee attack inflicts a large stagger on the player, which may be followed up in rapid succession to stun-lock the player. This can be managed by equipping a pneumatic torso mod.

Appearances[]

Yao guai appear in Fallout 76.

Behind the scenes[]

  • In Mandarin, yāo guài (妖怪) translates as "monster" or "demon." In Chinese mythology, "yaoguai" are usually physical manifestations of the spirits of mistreated animals or fallen divine animals.
  • In early concept art for Fallout 3, the yao guai's name was spelled "yaogwai."[1]
  • The Fallout 4 yao guai were modeled by Christiane Meister.[2]
  • The black bear from which the yao guai mutated is the official state mammal of West Virginia.
