Dead Rising Wiki

"Zombies or no zombies, Kathy's Space was having a sale, and it will take more than the undead to stop me. I just bought the cutest pair of pumps."
—Bessie, on her shopping

Bessie Kent is a survivor that is shopping in the Royal Flush Plaza in Dead Rising 2 during the unannounced mission Shopping Spree.

Shopping Spree[]

Main article: Shopping Spree

Bessie is found talking with Erica Mayes and Rosa Collins in Kathy's Space in Royal Flush Plaza after 8 AM on Day 2. She and her friends take advantage of the outbreak and are shopping in the line-less stores when they are found by Chuck Greene. They claim that there is a sale and they are not leaving without their purchases, which Chuck must carry.


  • Bessie, along with Erica and Rosa, does not appear in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record.
  • Bessie, along with Rosa and Erica, are some of the strongest female survivors in the game, and despite all the girls wearing heels, they're also some of the fastest female survivors in the game too.
    • Coincidentally, they share some similarities to another female trio group, that being the Fetching Females scoop.
      • Both groups require a specific quest to be reached in order to be recruited (i.e Chuck carrying the Box and Chuck paying $10,000).
      • Both groups do not defect if another member from their trio dies (although the aftermath of such result can be different.)
      • Both groups are all equally fast and all share a unique melee system when unarmed that can kill zombies in 1-2 hits (they're the only female groups/survivors that share this melee system.)
  • Like Erica and Rosa, Bessie doesn't follow Chucks waypoints or calls at all, her loyalties lie with the Shopping Valuables.
    • No matter how the Shopping Valuables are destroyed, like Erica and Rosa, Bessie will always defect from Chuck if they are ruined.
    • If you take Bessie to another location without the Shopping Valuables, like Erica and Rosa, Bessie will just stand there and not move unless zombies are near for her to kill (if this is the case then you will have to go back to the Kathy's Space store where they spawn and get the Shopping Valuables back for Bessie to move with Chuck again.
    • They're also the only group of survivors whose loyalty only lies within an item.
  • Bessie will not defect if Erica or Rosa die.
    • Most of the time if Chuck kills a survivor in front of Bessie, she'll laugh at the dead survivor's body instead of being angry or cry over it (applies to Rosa and Erica as well).
  • Out of her, Rosa and Erica, Bessie is the oldest at 30 years old.
  • Out of the trio, Bessie seems to be the only one that Chuck is not attracted to. As he wrote that "tough never looked so good" for Rosa, and that Erica is easy on the eyes, but nothing of the sort for Bessie.
    • It could be because Bessie is the meanest of the trio, since she doesn't show sadness if Rosa or Erica die like they do if she dies, and will sometimes laugh if Chuck kills one of them rather than verbally insult and attack him like they do if they see him kill one of them, and she has the most demanding dialogue if you talk to her instead of Rosa or Erica.
