"Democracy will never be defeated!"

-- Liberty Prime

When a Brotherhood of Steel expeditionary team was sent to scour Washington, D.C. for pre-Great War technology they found the Pentagon in ruins. However, in those ruins they discovered Liberty Prime, a 40-foot tall military robot that was built to retake Alaska from the Chinese before the Great War. At the end of Fallout 3, Liberty Prime is reactivated to help the Vault 101 Dweller and the Brotherhood take Project Purity from the Enclave.

Even though Liberty Prime shares many common characteristics with the famous Transformer, Optimus Prime, Emil Pagliarulo (the game's lead designer & writer) denied any intentional connections between the two. However, he conceded that he might have subconsciously drawn inspiration from Optimus.
