The buttercup toy is a miscellaneous item in the Fallout 3 add-on Mothership Zeta.


The buttercup toy is likely a promotion giveaway or side sales campaign for the pre-War robotic horse Giddyup Buttercup. Being quasi-unique, only four can be found on Mothership Zeta.


  • One of the buttercup toys can be found after the Lone Wanderer has both visited a few of the other locations connected to the engineering core, and possibly destroyed one or more generators. It appears on the bottom floor of the engineering core, on a table near the makeshift bed where Toshiro Kago usually sits.
  • A second buttercup toy is also in the engineering core, on the table next to the pre-War bed near the broken teleporter. The table is always there but the toy only gets placed on it when three generators are destroyed.
  • A third can be found on the shelf above the unique atomic pulverizer behind a lock (75 Science skill) in the weapons lab. Alternatively you can just use the console beside the door.
  • A fourth can be found inside the research lab. Find the room with full-size buttercups on giant shelves. From the top lookout, looking over the shelves/rows of life-size Buttercups, you can see a small toy-size buttercup near the top shelf. Shoot it off and then go retrieve it or jump and grab at the right moment.
