Vile is a boss encountered in Fear & Hunger 2: Termina.

Lore

Vile is a villager within the Old Town portion of Prehevil. Wearing a gasmask fashioned to mimic the head of a pig, he carries around a pesticide canister constantly leaking chemicals with which he is seen using to spray fish and also attack bystanders. Vile possibly used to be a fishmonger or an exterminator of pests before the moonlight burnt him.

If one happens to kill Vile and saw off his head, they will notice the mask has been fused to his face. Despite this fusion to his skin, he can partially lift the mask to speak if necessary. Underneath the exposed portion, Vile's row of sharp teeth can be seen and his spoken words become comprehensible whilst the mask is lifted.

Location

He can be seen in the Old Town - Gate tending to fishes, spraying them down with pesticide, and will become hostile when you walk past him. Exiting the area or entering the area from the eastern part of Old Town will cause him to be automatically hostile the next time you enter the area.

Vile wields a poisonous spray, dealing 24-36 damage and having a very high chance to poison. His other main attack is clubbing the party with his gas canister, dealing 16-24 blunt damage. Both of these attacks can quickly leave the player in a critical condition if alone, and even with an extra party member.

Strategy

Fear & Hunger Mode

Vile can be killed with Talk by selecting the dialogue option "What was that?" three times in a row. Unlike others, choosing this line will not end the player's turn upon being selected and instead brings up the talk options once more, possibly hinting for the player to persist in repeating the selection.

After the third repetition, the normal response of "*breathe* *breathe*" will add a final "*BREATHE*" to the line and the game will then state Vile's frustration at your character's lack of understanding. Vile will then proceed to lift his mask partially, exposing his melted skin and grimacing at the player. A coin flip will then occur. Calling the coin correctly will have Vile shout at the player "ONLY- THE VILE-" before accidentally deeply inhaling the pesticides which constantly leak from his canister. Vile will begin to cough blood before expiring, ending the combat immediately.

Besides that, the fastest way to kill him would be to go for the legs, then the head, as all combined have about half as much HP as his torso. But this is difficult without better tools and more party members.

It is recommended to try and completely avoid Vile if possible early in the game, as his stealables and drops are not worth the hassle.

Dialogues

Battle start

  • A man with a pigskin gas mask is pursuing you furiously!
    • Player: “Hold on! I don't want to start a fight!”
      • Your words are in vain. The man is clearly out for blood.
    • Player: “What is going on here!?”
      • Your words are in vain. The man is clearly out for blood.
    • Player: “I'm ready to defend myself, just so you know.”
      • Your words are in vain. The man is clearly out for blood.

Talk

  • Vile: *breathe* *breathe* You try talking the masked man, but his words are muffled by the gas mask. *breathe*
    • Player: [PERSUADE] “I interrupted your business, I get it. How can I repay it?”
      • Vile: *breather* *breathe* It sounds as if Vile is laughing behind his gas mask. He drops his guard in arrogance. (+Defence drop)
      • If repeated:
      • Vile: *breather* *breathe* Seems like your pleads just aggravate Vile even more! (-Defence drop)
    • Player: [INTIMIDATE] “You think that bug spray will stop me?”
      • Vile: *breather* *breathe* You can see a faint sign of hesitation in Vile's eyes. He doesn't stop on his heels entirely, but he seems to be questioning his next move. (+Attack drop, applies to the player's party instead)
      • If repeated:
      • Vile: *breather* *breathe* Vile doesn't seem intimidated with your threats. (-Attack drop, applies to the player's party instead)
    • Player: “What was that?”
      • Vile: *breathe* *breathe* He is trying to answer you, but you cannot make any sense of his words because of the mask... *breathe*
        • Player: “What was that?”
          • Vile: *breathe* *breathe* He is trying to answer you, but you cannot make any sense of his words because of the mask... *breathe*
            • Player: “What was that?”
              • Vile: *breathe* *breathe* *BREATHE!* Vile is losing his cool because of your lack of understanding. Furiously he lifts his mask. The mask seems to have melted on his face partially but underneath it you can see a row of sharp teeth grimacing at you. (Coin flip starts)
                • Success:
                  • Vile: “ONLY - THE VILE--” Pesticide is leaking from the canister constantly. Vile took a good breather of his own pesticide without his mask on... *cough* *cough* He is coughing blood. (Battle end)
                • Failure:
                  • Vile: “NO MORE- TALKING! ONLY - THE VILE - SURVIVE! RHER - T-TAKE ME!”
    • Player: “Please don't! I'm just passing through!”
      • Vile: *breather* *breathe* Seems like your pleads just aggravate Vile even more!
    • Player: “Prepare to die!”
      • Vile: *breather* *breathe* Vile doesn't seem intimidated with your threats.
    • Player: Nevermind
  • If coin flip was failed before:
  • Vile: *breathe* *breathe* Vile isn't interested in talking to you any longer...

Player with Diagnosis:
“The tall monster of a man seems to have rash all over its body. The rash seems to focus on the neck area and possibly to face and head, but that is impossible to tell because of the mask. The mask itself has melted on the patient's face and formed a light layer of exoskeleton-like crust that continues from the mask to the neck. Despite somewhat large frame, the man seems to be weak against piercing attacks as well as otherwordly powers. ”

Trivia

  • Vile is one of the few enemies in the Fear & Hunger series whose combat encounter can be won through using the Talk skill.
  • Vile's animal-themed mask is melded to his face in a similar way that the Owl Cultists and Pocketcat have. He has also seemingly grown hooves in place of feet and morphed rows of sharp teeth.
  • Due to a bug, attacking a placed down gas canister when fighting him will do nothing.

Warning! Speculation ahead!

Information below is hinted on, but wasn't directly confirmed in-game.

  • The dialogue offered when failing the Persuade coinflip (“NO MORE- TALKING! ONLY - THE VILE - SURVIVE! RHER - T-TAKE ME!”) implies that Vile is one contestant who decided to participate in killing fellow Termina contestants during an earlier Prehevil Termina Festival. He seems to have doubled down on killing others to survive as a means to satisfy Rher.
  • It is worth noting that in the game Fear & Hunger, in the scrapped content of MAP 132, there is a dialogue about the poison gas, and it was probably then that Miro had the idea for the Vile design.
