Dead Rising Wiki

"Wow, tough love. Isn't that what they call it? You must sense a spark of life still within! I think I'm sick of listening to me, too! Let's go!"
—Andy upon agreeing to follow Chuck

Andy Talbat is a survivor appearing in Dead Rising 2 during the mission Dead or Alive? as he contemplates to commit suicide or not.

Andy was listed by Gretchen Peregrine on the August 6, 2010 Tape it or Die blog post as one of the members whom they would meet with in Fortune City.

Dead or Alive?[]

Stacey gives Chuck a call about a man armed with a shotgun standing on some slots in one of the malls. Upon finding the man, Chuck will have to have a long conversation with Andy about the collective intelligence of the zombies that Andy has killed on top of a group of slot machines.

If Chuck leaves Andy's presence after initiating the conversation but before Andy joins, Andy will defect, saying "It's too much." or "The only way out is the easy way out." He will commit suicide by putting his shotgun to his chin, and blowing his own brains out.


  • Andy does not appear in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record.
  • While Andy's suicide is unlikely to happen in single-player, it is common in co-op, as another player being too far away from Andy will automatically trigger the death. Thus, both players must be present when talking Andy out of his suicide attempt.

  • Adrian Lee, an unsavable arena victim, shares the same face model as Andy.

  • During the introduction, there is an unnamed survivor with the same character model as Andy, who can be seen being attacked by a zombie as the zombie jock kills a man.
  • In data/models/npcs.big, there is a "cine_protandy". All protesters seen (Andrea Brenser, McKenzie, Charlie) in the television newscast while Chuck is getting dressed in the locker room after the TiR event (except Stacey) have "prot" in their names. However, Andy is not shown in this television broadcast (along with Michelle and Cherry).
