Rejected Fallout 3 Perks

In Fallout 3, you will gain a perk every level as opposed to every three levels in Fallout and Fallout 2, and every two in Fallout: New Vegas. There are 58 regular perks, 5 special perks and 7 quest perks in the normal game;
  • 2 special perks in Operation: Anchorage, though one is a special perk from the base game (Power Armor Training), 
  • 1 special perk and 2 quest perks in The Pitt, 
  • 14 regular perks in Broken Steel, 
  • 1 special perk, 2 quest perks and 3 cut perks (impossible to get without using the console or one or more mods) in Point Lookout
  • 1 special perk in Mothership Zeta
As you might have seen/use/know about those mentioned above, there is also a short list of perks that are rejected for Fallout 3 and would be interesting to see them in game:

  • Darwinian Perk: -100% depth. Player will also occasionally feel compelled to toss a live grenade at his own feet, then squeal in dismay like a digital cat.
  • Foppish Dandy Perk: -3 to Perception due to the player looking down his nose at everyone. Adds aura: Haughty Disdain. Does not protect against radiation.
  • Valueless Chav Perk: There are no discernible benefits gained from this particular perk, save from the ability to slightly frighten the elderly and frail.

  • Unsettling Gimp Perk: Player gains experience from any melee injuries inflicted upon him, but suffers -30 points to Speech skill due to restrictive ball-gag.
  • Mrs Doubtfire Perk: Immediate gender change, but each time the player uses V.A.T.S., there's a chance Pierce Brosnan will seduce their current companion.
  • Big Daddy Perk: +20 damage resistance, -1 hand, -5 to Sneak due to constant groaning. Enables the player to enlist any female child as a permanent companion.

  • Lil' Cthulhu Perk: -10 to Euclidean geometry, +10 disposition to Centaurs. Player can now look directly at the ground and press USE to immediately devour the Earth.
  • Barack Oblamma Perk: Immune to all attacks of any conceivable kind. Also gives +33% damage versus any human over the age of 70, +1 hope, +1 unity, +1 change.
  • Rod Hull Perk: The player has a 33% chance for an extra beak attack in V.A.T.S., but -50 disposition with all characters, particularly females. Fall damage is doubled.
