Mike "The Masticator" is the heavyweight fighting champion at the outset of Fallout 2.



He can be found in New Reno, training at the Jungle Gym, although he actually lives in the basement of the Bishop family's casino, the Shark Club. He is a towering mass of muscle, with each arm looking like it could double as a tank barrel, complimenting his face, which looks akin to a raw slab of meat. He is mentally underdeveloped, kept in a cage in the casino basement, where his aggression and relentlessness are fine tuned and maintained.


The Fighter

Of all the New Reno boxing favorites, hopefuls, and wannabes, Mike "The Masticator" stood unopposed at the top of the heap. His championship came from two sources. In the first place, Mike is an outstanding fighter, boasting strong skills in unarmed combat. However, Mike also owes his standing to fear. Many boxers are afraid to challenge the champ.

Odd Habits

Mike earned his nickname of "masticator" through his very unusual tendency to bite at opponents' ears. Many a challenger has found out the hard way that Mike does not believe in clean fighting. Losing a fight to Mike "The Masticator" usually means losing an ear, as well. In fact, if the player loses his fight against Mike, they stand almost a certain chance to receive the unique item Player's Ear.

Interactions with the player character

The fate of Mike "The Masticator" is largely up to the player. As he is not involved in the plot of the game, he can be - and often is - bypassed entirely. Should the player enter the New Reno boxing circuit and defeat Mike, the player is crowned the new boxing champion and Mike is never heard from again.

Behind the scenes

The origin of the character was the Mike Tyson-Evander Holyfield bout of 1997. Tyson bit off a piece of Holyfield's right ear during the fight. He was suspended, his boxing license was revoked for one year, and he was fined three million dollars. (Also note that a boxer that you can fight is called Evan Holyfeld.)
