The Ravenous Wattle Gobbler is the main boss in The Horrible Hunger of the Ravenous Wattle Gobbler Headhunter pack. It is a gigantic turkey-like creature, genetically–engineered to monstrous proportions, and hungry for human flesh.
The fight with Wattle Gobbler and the other events leading up to it can be completed an indefinite number of times, each with progressively increasing difficulty and rewards each time, eventually achieving the health and strength of a raid boss, with similar rewards.
The Wattle Gobbler was created by the Torgue corporation as part of an elaborate publicity stunt in which the beast was designed to be literally unkillable. Many dozens of gladiators would try, and fail, to destroy it before Mr. Torgue hatched a plan to have it killed in a staged manner. When the Vault Hunters arrive at the site of the twisted games, Mr. Torgue instructs them to create a poison that will render the turkey vulnerable, against the direct orders of his superiors.
- There are also miniature Wattle Gobblers called Wattle Gobblets encountered in the boss fight. They are about the size of a regular turkey, but look very much like Ravenous Wattle Gobbler.
