The hilariously insane super mutant leader of the "State of Utobitha" stationed at Black Mountain.

  • And the Adventure Continues...: If the Courier manages to reactivate Rhonda, Tabitha and the robot will go on adventures deep within Legion territory. Tales of their exploits will entertain children for years to come.
  • Ax Crazy: She is only slightly more sane then the super mutants in DC.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Maybe even a little Crazy Awesome.
  • Faux Affably Evil: She is Ax Crazy and has been raiding cattle convoys.
  • Funny Schizophrenia: And how! Unlike Lily, or Dog/God, her insanity is 100% Played for Laughs.
  • Harmless Villain: Other than broadcasting her own particular brand of crazy over radio for anyone to hear, Tabitha is mostly content to remain in Black Mountain without causing any trouble for the rest of the Mojave Wasteland (although it's mentioned during the Jacobstown quest that her super mutants have been raiding NCR cattle convoys).
  • Just the First Citizen: Her position in the State of Utobitha is "Best Friend Tabitha".
  • Large Ham Radio: And you can hear it.
  • Pet the Dog: Done offscreen, but she did save Mean Sonofabitch years ago while he was being tortured by NCR troopers.
  • Robosexual: It's never brought up explicitly, but part of Tabitha's backstory is that she fell in love with Rhonda, the disabled Mr. Handy. This would also technically make her a lesbian.
  • Sitcom Arch Nemesis: Raul, who she threatens to execute every day, only to decided against it since he hasn't outlived his usefulness yet. If you never rescued Raul or dealt with Tabitha, the ending shows this is still going on long past the Courier's victory.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: As the leader of the "State of Utobitha".
  • The Starscream: To Marcus, who she kicked out of Black Mountain before the events of the game.
  • Inner Dialogue: Her radio show with "Rhonda". This only becomes apparent when you find out that Rhonda is a Mr. Handy robot and currently deactivated, while "Rhonda's" voice on the radio is clearly that of a Super mutant.
    • Several broadcasts also reveal this, although it's difficult to spot unless you know the secret beforehand. Raoul catches himself nearly adressing "Rhonda" as Tabitha, Tabitha's "Rhonda" voice slips when she gets upset... and at one point, she tells Rhonda that she misses her every day. On some level, she's aware of the truth.
  • This Is Sparta: "CENTAURS! EAT! HUMANS, RHONDA!"
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Wants to do this with Raul, only for him to remind her that he hasn't outlived his usefulness.

No-Bark Noonan

""Them quack doctors can say what they want about all the radscorpion stings that done pierced my skull. I know what I seen!"

Novac's resident expert in all things unexplained. Most residents quite rightly view him as a nutjob, though there is often a grain of truth to his ramblings.

  • Cloudcuckoolander: Big time.
  • Conspiracy Theorist: His craziness works this way.
  • The Cuckoolander Was Right: While some of his theories may be wildly off the mark (the checker-vision aliens), some are hilariously close to the truth, just not in the way he imagines them. For instance, the Bright Brotherhood was trying to steal space rockets, though not so that they could paint the moon pink and draw a Lenin face on it. The McBride Brahmin were being killed by an invisible assailant with an automatic weapon, albeit a Nightkin, not a Chupacabra. He's also the only person in Novac to see through Bitch in Sheep's Clothing Jeannie May Crawford's ruse, and even his reasoning behind that [1] is fairly sound in an Insane Troll Logic sort of way.
    • And if the Courier helps the Bright Brotherhood with their rockets, No-Bark plays it even more straight by telling a toy bear near one of Radio New Vegas' microphones just what happened: the unidentified flying objects he saw were religious ghouls in rockets looking for a land to call their own.
  • Properly Paranoid: At the very least, he's right in thinking that there are some mighty suspicious things going on, even if the conclusions he jumps to are rather strange.
  1. Everyone's got issues; if someone claims they don't, they're hiding something and it's probably nasty.
