"You don't get it, do you kid? You have to seize the opportunity, or you lose the profit. Simple. The free market at its finest."
—Albert, explaining harvesting people's organs

Albert Contiello is a psychopath in Dead Rising 3. He is one of seven psychopaths who embody the Seven Deadly Sins. [3] Albert's sin is Greed.

He is a psychotic surgeon who performs sadistic surgery on survivors and harvests their organs to sell on black markets. He wears a large amount of jewelry, including two expensive-looking watches on his left hand, two golden bracelets on his right hand and six golden necklaces together with a string of five fingers with gemstone rings on around his neck. It's likely he keeps these as souvenirs from his victims.

Making a KillingEdit

Nick enters the Almuda Farms Cold Storage during Chapter 3, and is quickly taken out by Albert, who jabs a syringe into his neck. 

When Nick wakes up, he sees Albert about to harvest the organs of a female survivor in order to sell them on the black market. Nick gets up, still feeling the effects of the syringe, and Albert tells him that he is not in the right condition to be standing. Nick then stumbles into a box of human organs, and Albert quickly exclaims that they belong to him.

Nick realizes that Albert stole the organs from innocent survivors. Albert tells him that he doesn't understand, and explains that a zombie outbreak is the perfect time to make money. Nick, under the effects of the drugs injected into him, hallucinates the female survivor turning into a clone of Albert. As the survivor gets up, Albert proceeds to fight Nick using a surgical saw.

After Albert is defeated, he is injected by his own syringe, and starts to see hallucinations of zombies approaching him. He constantly tells them to get their hands off his harvested organs. The zombies approach him and, in his mind, proceed to kill him. Albert replicates what they are doing to him in his mind using his saw to disembowel himself and continues to rip out his revealed intestines, until he literally dies at his own hands.

The Greedy achievement will unlock after he is defeated.

Battle StyleEdit

Dead Rising 3 Doctor "Albert Contiello" Psychopath Boss Fight

Dead Rising 3 Doctor "Albert Contiello" Psychopath Boss Fight

  • Albert will walk around the area and attempt to harvest the organs of victims throughout the fight.
  • Nick will hallucinate seeing many different Albert's who are actually other survivors, periodically throughout the fight, and so part of the battle is spent finding the real Albert. 
  • If Nick sees an Albert who is defensively swiping with the Surgical Saw but also covering his face, this is a telltale sign of a survivor and not Albert himself. 
  • Nick will faint every time he attacks Albert, since he's still under the effect of hallucinogenic drugs. 
  • Albert will attack Nick with a surgical saw or a syringe if Nick gets too close.
  • Albert may also attempt to grab and "harvest" Nick, if he is unlucky enough to be too close to Albert.
  • Albert's weakness lies within the Organ Coolers. Picking them up and throwing one of them near Albert will cause him to become angry, thus distracting him and giving Nick an opportunity to attack. Press Ybutton+Bbutton to grab Albert and stab him with a syringe.
  • His attacks will do anywhere from 50 to 100 damage.[4]
  • He has the least amount of health of any psychopath, but his attacks do a fairly devastating amount of damage. 


  • Albert was the first psychopath to be officially announced before the release of Dead Rising 3.
  • Dead Rising 3's producer Mike Jones stated that he considers Albert to be one of the darker psychopaths in the game.[5]
  • Unlike the previous psychopaths in the series, Albert has no tragic motivations, comedic moments or limits to what he will do to fulfill his avarice. 
  • Each time Nick faints, Albert and any surrounding "clones" will laugh maniacally, jerking and twitching in a spastic and unnatural manner. This is a result of the drugs in Nick's system distorting his hallucinations of Albert, causing them to turn frantic and twisted.
  • Unlike the previous psychopaths, Nick is actually terrified of Albert and sometimes screams during the battle and questions how long he's been harvesting organs from innocent people.
  • Albert shares his first name with fellow Capcom villain, Albert Wesker of Resident Evil; himself also a mad scientist.
  • He is the only one of the "7 Deadly Sins Psychopaths" who must be defeated by default as the player progresses throughout the game. The other six are optional.
  • He shares even more similarities to Richard Trager from Outlast since they harvest human body parts for money and have other victims surrounding them in a dark area.
  • He and Theodore Smith from Dead Rising 2 both have 1000 health, the lowest of any psychopath in the series.
  • Albert can be one of the easiest psychopaths to defeat in the series given that he is more focused on the other hostages and his weakness can be exploited by the usage of organ coolers.
  • His name can also be a reference to the inventor of LSD Albert Hofmann.
  • Regardless of whether or not Albert is stabbed with a syringe during the battle, his death cutscene will still show him with a syringe in his shoulder.
  • Nick will periodically vomit, as a result of the drugs in his system.
  • If Nick manages to kill Albert before he attacks other survivors, you can save them. But they will behave like a Stranded Survivor and run away. Also, it gives you more PP.
  • Any weapons or items Nick has will be in a pile near a box of supplies he needs to destroy. So don't worry about losing your items.
