Captain Ballarms is a protectron and is currently a regular companion in Fallout New Vegas for Al. He originally came from the D.E.I.M.O.S mod made by AlexanderJVelicky.
Captain James Ballarms first appeared in Fallout New Vegas Mods: DEIMOS - Part 2, originally nameless. As Al had no companions at the time, he named a maintenance robot and proceeded onwards with the mod. A fan of AlChestBreach's videos eventually made a Captain Ballarms Companion mod(old one has been removed, go here instead) and joined the team on a permanent basis in Fallout New Vegas Mods: Sixer of Psiclones and Mini-Rockets! - Part 1. Al frequently berates and blames Ballarms for anything that goes wrong.
- Apparently a U.S. army captain.
- There is an easter egg dedicated to him in The Inheritance - Part 4.
- A newer version of the Captain Ballarms exists that Al does not use.
- Captain Ballarms hates communists and regularly makes comments to this effect.
- Ballarms is the companion most frequently blamed for knocking objects over at Al. Ironically, Ballarms interceded between Cuddles and Al when the latter got angry at the former for doing just that.
- Mister Cuddlesworth And Jerry McGhoulBerry hate Captain Ballarms, perhaps because he forgot their birthday and got them a lame present. They periodically gang up on him without provocation.
- Ballarms occasionally bumps into walls and other objects, causing quite a racket. Al frequently yells at him for this, but he shows no intention of stopping.
- Ballarms appears in Al's Fallout 3 mod reviews due to Al getting the crew sucked into the past because he touched Frumpkins.
- He is married to Mrs. Ballarms.
- Ballarms occasionally tires of Al's constant insults and will attempt to kill him when he is vulnerable.
- He has a German cousin named Ball² who has appeared in three of Al's videos. Al doesn't like it when he shows up.
- Ballarms likes to hug people, especially Al, from behind.
- He is just one kid, shoved into the cranium according to Al in the Fallout New Vegas Mods: Gus Has Gas - Fourfer.
- During The Return of Janet he was sent back in time with Al's baby, but Al forgot to tell him where to meet up.
- He also occasionally eats oil.
- During Al's latest montage, "A Rescue In Time" it is revealed that Ballarms is out to kill Al for revenge. He does so by raising an army.
- Captain Ballarms appears on the current background of Al's channel.
- Al accidentally tackled Ballarms in his modded playthrough. He apologized by giving Ballarms a full-on hug.
- Since his departure back in time, Ballarms' name appears on Al's Pip-Boy map in Hidden Valley, the Brotherhood of Steel's base. This is similar to when Janet was gone, as her name would frequently appear as well.
- According to the end credits of the FNV Modded Playthrough Ballarms returns months after his disappearance. Ballarms had apparently been wandering around the waste, "giving hugs, and more hugs."
