Mother Punga is a plant in Fallout 3 that Cywren found. When Cywren activated the Seed pods, she was sent into a dream-like state by The Legendary Bobble Head Caper of 1936. the seeds caused her to hallucinate bobble heads that made fun of her mistakes in her life.
Below is the message each Bubblehead contains in the order they can be found:
- Intelligence: "Tsk. Tsk. Walked right into another trap. Exactly how stupid are you?" (Found immediately upon leaving the area with the Mother Punga)
- Strength: "This is one situation you're not going to be able to fight your way out of." (Found on a small dot of land on the way back)
- Endurance: "Keep it up, you're almost there... wherever 'there' may be... probably nowhere."
- Agility: "Isn't it funny how everyone you get close to ends up leaving?" (Found around where exploding Nuka-Cola Quantums start appearing)
- Perception: "This doesn't look right, not right at all." (Found upside-down where the world is upside-down)
- Charisma: "Blech. If my kid looked like that, I'd abandon it too." (Found in-between the legs of the skeleton labeled 'Mom' lying on a hospital bed, to represent Catherine giving birth)
- Luck: "Dead mother, life in a post-nuclear Wasteland and not a friend in it. Yeah, you aren’t exactly blessed." (Found near Mr. Break and the Atomic Bomb)
it is revealed that Tobar follows the Cywren into the Sacred Bog. While the Cywren is unconscious from the effects of the punga fruit, Tobar removes a piece of her brain (he allegedly has done this to many of the Tribals as well). Undergoing this surgery earns the Point Lookout Tribe's acceptance. The hallucination at the Sacred Bog Entrance can be interpreted as follows:
- The saw cutting represents Tobar beginning the surgery.
- The needle that "sews" its way along the side of the path is Tobar sewing the wound shut.
- The part where Mr. Break speaks is actually Tobar speaking as he ends the surgery.
- Some things seen during the hallucination have a "real world" counterpart: (in the order the real things are seen) the bomb is a giant rock, the Washington Monument is a large rock formation seen in the background before the hallucination, the Cywren's mother on a gurney is also a rock, the Perception Bubblehead is a doll hanging from the trees, the Agility Bubblehead is a rock, the exploding bottles are dolls hanging from the trees along the path, the violins are winding trees, the Strength Bubblehead is a small rock, and the Intelligence Bubblehead is also another rock.
