Stub Logo.png This page is incomplete and/or lacking flavor. Reason: Lacks and substantial Fluff. While it can be regarded as useless information it has a significant impact on how your content is used by players. How was the race created, what is there story, and other general questions about the creation and society of the race in general need to be answered. If the race has subraces, it should also have more than one and they should have a description of some kind. Consult the 5e Race Design Guide for help.

Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Races shouldn't be immortal, this race has an absurd ability score increase and negative ability scores doesn't balance the ability scores out like in 3e(and negative scores should typically be avoided) and the race is large sized.

Super Mutants[edit]


Physical Description[edit]

Mutants are typically much taller, bulkier and muscular than pure strain humans. They have predominantly green, gray, or yellowish skin, are immune to disease and radiation, and are gifted with superhuman strength and endurance. Although they are completely sterile, the rapid regeneration of their cells makes them virtually biologically immortal, though not immune to death from injury. Average super mutants stand approximately 10.4 feet tall (although they typically have hunched backs that reduce them to about 7.8 feet) and weigh around 800 pounds, possibly even more. Their skin is extremely tough, and their muscle and bone structure are enhanced well beyond the human norm.


Super mutants are mutated humans, products of infection and radiation. Despite their general lack of intelligence, they are somehow able to organize themselves into a coordinated army, often with the help of a master. They are often able procure large amounts of advanced weapons, ammunition, and equipment, and even maintain the biomedical infrastructure necessary to infect humans and increase the numbers of super mutants in the region.


While most are mean, quick to anger due to a lack of intelligence, they do find plenty in common among other Super Mutants. They do argue and fight among each other when it comes to loot and belongings. There is the rare intelligent super mutant, referred to as a master, that is incredibly rare, even a feat. Super mutant societies tend to both loathe and pity humans due to the fact that they are not super mutants. In their eyes, kidnapping and infecting humans is a blessing.

Super Mutant Names[edit]

Unless they are of the rare intelligent sort or raised in civilized society, their names are based in grunts and made simple.

Male: Drowg, Mog, Lov, Plog, Greeg, Tord, Huck, Plik, Burg, Merge, Koog, Shup, Hun, Carg.

Female: Teeb, Lop, Goop, Hup, Push, Agh, Pod, Vug, Hurd, Teeg, Mag, Nap, Hul, Kus, Lip.

Irradiated Blood. Being practically designed through mutation, Super Mutants have Resistance against being poisoned or diseased
Carnivore. vegetation is rare in irradiated areas where Super Mutants are spawned, and so Super Mutants can only eat meat based foods.
