— Weapon description in Saints Row: The Third[4] and Saints Row IV[5]


The Penetrator is a melee weapon constructed from a metre-long dildo attached to a handle of a Baseball Bat. The physics emulate a jelly dildo when attacking or running.

Saints Row: The Third[]

The Penetrator is available for purchase at Friendly Fire, from the mascots in the medium/hard levels of Professor Genki's Super Ethical Reality Climax activities on the central island, or as a reward for completing the mission "Return to Steelport".

Saints Row IV[]

The Penetrator is the only costume for the Dildo Bat.

There are no upgrades for the Dildo Bat, and no "ultimate upgrade".[6]

A Dildo Bat is located inside the cave on the east shore in Brickston.[7] This is the same cave which contains a Drug Package Collectible in Saints Row: The Third. It is only possible to pick it up after completing The Fundamentals.

The Dildo Bat is available during "Gat Time, Fun Time".

The censored Penetrator.

  • The Penetrator was originally known as the Dildo Bat.[11][12][13]
  • The Penetrator was remodeled for Japanese markets in order to comply with stricter content regulations, with THQ being told to remove the "veins and physics" from the weapon.[14] The veins were removed but the physics were retained.[reference?]
    • In the Japanese version, it is called "怪しいバット", meaning "Suspicious Bat".
    • The Japanese version remains censored in Saints Row IV.[15]
    • In the Japanese version of Saints Row IV, the weapon skin cannot be changed.
  • Over two million people have been killed by The Penetrator.[16]
  • There is a real model that was made and shipped to various magazines and websites as viral promotion for the game.[17][18]
  • Penetrator's model filename has a prefix "WP", which is normally only present on Temporary Weapons, meaning that The Penetrator was originally to be a Temporary Weapon rather than a normal Melee Weapon. Every gang's Specialist has a different Temporary Weapon, and there are no other unused Temporary weapons which could have been used by the Oiran's Specialist before the Oiran were merged with the Morningstar.
  • "The Good Doctor" skin is a reference to Dr Manhattan's penis in Watchmen, both in name and appearance.[19][20]
  • There is one in Kinzie's Warehouse, which Pierce uses to harass Playa while Kinzie isn't looking.[21]
  • The Penetrator is featured under P in The ABCs of Saints Row, albeit censored.[22]
  • The Penetrator is featured on an unused Saints Row: The Third billboard for "Big Papa Payne's Toys For Twats".


I looked at dildo reference images to get the veins just right for quite a while
