From The Vault

Giddyup Buttercup is the name of a robotic toy horse manufactured by Wilson Automatoys before the Great War. Touted as the "ultimate in equestrian robotics", it was a toy aimed at a target audience of little girls and cost $16,000. A marketing poster featuring the horse is copyrighted 2042, suggesting the toy was sold at least in that year.


In the Mothership Zeta add-on, the aliens are shown to have an unusual fascination with the toy, possessing hundreds of them stacked on racks in the Research Lab. One particular observation room has a lone Buttercup in the center surrounded by five corpses. Blood stains on the glass tube in the center and the floor suggest that the group was attempting to flee something in vain, ostensibly the seemingly harmless toy. Alien Captive Recorded Log 21 features Sally being taken to the recording room and noticing a Giddyup Buttercup. The aliens are described as being excited, either by her recognition of it, or by her happy reaction. If Paulson, Elliot Tercorien, or Somah are taken to the Buttercups in the Research Lab, they will make several uneasy comments about them.


  • In the Mothership's Research Lab are hundreds of Giddyup Buttercups stacked all over. Smaller Buttercup Toys can be found in four places on the ship.
  • A single Giddyup Buttercup is located just above the location of the smaller Buttercup Toy in Engineering Core.


Giddyup Buttercup appears only in Fallout 3 and the Mothership Zeta add-on.
