Shadowrun Wiki

Mungo the Decker is a male troll decker who isn't particularly intelligent or well spoken but for whatever reason is a highly skilled decker.


Mungo started as an extreme example of where the Shadowrun 4th edition rules (arguably) broke verisimilitude about allowing a character with only 1 logic to be as good at hacking as any other character. This was because in 4e attributes played no role in hacking, and instead was only about the players skills, hardware, and software. In earlier and later editions of Shadowrun, a character like Mungo isn't as viable, but in 4e a character like this could work, and compete with other dedicated hackers.

Mungo is used for hacking rule examples in Sixth Edition.
