"I get EXPLOSIVE when I have to wait."
—Bibi Love, on waiting for her demands to be met

Bibi Love is a psychopath turned survivor appearing in Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record.

She is an aging pop singer who is clinging to her former glory. As a result of the outbreak, she has taken several of her employees hostage in the mission One Hit Wonder. She reappears in Off the Record with the same role.

One Hit Wonder[]

After the zombie outbreak in Fortune City causes the last of her fans to flee, she has gone insane and taken over a stage. Using wires and a bomb with a remote detonator, she threatens to blow up her hostages, Juan, Allison, and Cameron, if they try to leave before her show is over.

When Chuck comes across her, she mistakes him for a stagehand and asks Chuck to get her a refreshment, get dressed for her show (a Tuxedo, available from Modern Businessman in the Royal Flush Plaza), round up a group of "fans" (10-15 zombies) and finally, rig the lights for her performance. A minigame that is very similar to Guitar Hero where the player must press the appropriate buttons to do the appropriate lighting effects.

If Chuck completes the minigame, she will thank him for his help, then release her hostages and jump from the stage into the crowd of zombies, still thinking of them as fans. She will realize they are zombies and Chuck has the choice of saving her or leaving her.

If Chuck fails the minigame, or attacks her, or kills one of her hostages, a cutscene plays where she yells at him for ruining her comeback before sitting down next to Cameron and activating her bomb, killing herself, Cameron, Allison, and Juan. Note that Bibi can get killed by the zombies if the player lets them climb the stage.

This mission reappears in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record with no changes. When Bibi is brought back to the Safe House, however, she will reward Frank with one hundred dollars.

Sandbox Mode[]

Bibi is one of the crazed survivors Frank can fight in Sandbox Mode. She will spawn on her stage in the Slot Ranch Casino with a Large Wrench. Once defeated she drops her weapon and $25,000.

Trivia[]

  • After completing Bibi's light show, there is a checkpoint auto save. If the player quits and reloads the last checkpoint, Chuck/Frank will re spawn on the stage, but the crowd of zombies surrounding Bibi will be gone (confirmed on Xbox 360, only).
  • In Dead Rising 2: Case West a portrait of Bibi Love is hanging above Marian Mallon's fireplace in the Director's Office. This implies that Marian is a fan of Bibi. 
  • Bibi is the only psychopath in Dead Rising 2 that does not attack Chuck.
  • She is the only character to be seen and heard singing in the Dead Rising series.
    • Jeanna Slick is also seen singing, but there are no audible lyrics, as they take the form of text boxes instead.
  • Bibi and Snowflake are similar in the fact that they are the only two psychopaths who can be saved in Dead Rising 2
  • She is similar to Adam MacIntyre; both are former entertainers who became insane. 
  • She is similar to Paul Carson; both use bombs and can become survivors. 
  • She is similar to Kent Swanson; both psychopaths ask the player to do some errands for them. 
  • She, Snowflake and Brandon are the only psychopaths who don't drop a weapon. 
  • Bibi, along with Teddy Lagerfeld are the only psychopaths in the Dead Rising series who do not attack the player directly. (Attacking her will fail "One Hit Wonder" quest).  
  • If the player leaves Bibi behind while escorting the other three survivors to safety, her health will not have decreased when the player later returns to the Slot Ranch Casino. 
  • The player can bring other survivors in this mission because they will not harm Bibi, unlike bringing survivors to other psychopaths, whom they will attempt to attack. 
  • Bibi is an obvious parody of two American stars who are singers, performers and actresses since 1965. One such as Cherilyn “Cher” Sarkisian, who herself had a Las Vegas Show at the time of the game's production. Her provocative black outfit is also a reference to the one Cher wore in her "Turn Back Time" music video. The name Cher also means "Dear One", alternatively, "Love." The second one is Dyanne “Ilsa” Thorne, because both Isla and Bibi are very curvaceous, overtly sexualized, portraying themselves as the villainess, and also having full heads of red hair.
  • Her music can be heard during the overtime mode credits.
  • Erotica points awarded when her breasts, crotch, and buttocks are photographed.
  • Sometimes, when you pass her in the Safe House, she will say "You're my number 1 fan!"
  • In Dead Rising 2, the necklace she wears is different than the one it shows her wearing in the notebook. This was changed in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record.
  • Bibi is the first female psychopath in the Dead Rising series to sexually harass a main character, rather than minor characters.
  • If the player kills any of the staff before Bibi's intro cutscene plays, she will not arrive if you head onto the stage. 
  • Usually if you hit Bibi it will activate her death sequence, triggering the bombs. However, there was a way to kill bibi without setting off the bombs. If you had a Sniper Rifle and the Soldier clothes, shooting her in the back of the head at close range would kill her instantly and without triggering the cutscene. The bombs will not blow up and the survivors will not be able to move. This bug was fixed 2 weeks after the game's release in an update. 
  • From the beginning you gain the mapof Fortune City. If you go with your cursor to the Slot Ranch Casino, the description wil announce the comeback tour of Bibi Love. 
  • She is referenced in Dead Rising 3 in a news ticker, recalling the horrors of Fortune City. This indicates that she, and presumably other rescued survivors, escaped alive.
    • In Dead Rising 3, a survivor named Adam Daley wears her clothing and has her hairstyle. He seems to have a split personality of Bibi. Another song of hers, "Can't Get Enough Of Me", can be heard playing.
    • There is also a karaoke bar named Bibi's Box in Dead Rising 3, another reference to the pop star.
    • At Joey's House, one of her songs is playing, although it's not one that was officially released.
    • Because of the multiple references to her throughout Dead Rising 3, she is one of the only psychopaths to be confirmed to survive the events of an outbreak.
