Case 8-4: The Butcher is the nineteenth case Frank West receives in Dead Rising. It is activated upon entering the meat processing area after completing the previous case. It is completed after Frank defeats the psychopath Larry Chiang.
Frank arrives at the meat processing area to find Carlito captured by an insane butcher, Larry Chiang, who sees him as a slab of meat. Frank attempts to negotiate with him to no avail, and Larry starts up the machine that brings Carlito closer to the grinder.
After Frank defeats Larry, he interrogates a dying Carlito. He reveals that his purpose was to get revenge for the Santa Cabeza outbreak. Frank promises him that he will reveal the truth, but he has to give him the password to the computer first. Carlito, on his last breath, muses about the similarities between zombies and Americans. Just before he finally dies, he hands Frank a locket and asks him to deliver it to Isabela.
Should Frank not kill Larry Chiang in time, Carlito will be pulled into the grinder and ground up to death, resulting in failure of the cases.
The quickest way to the Meat Processing Area requires the Maintenance Tunnel Key - head down the stairs next to the Paradise Plaza restrooms and take the White Sedan. If Frank doesn't have the key, head out across the Leisure Park and use the Red Convertible.
Introduction to LarryEdit
Walking into the Meat Processing Area, Frank finds Carlito being hung up on a conveyor by Larry Chiang, a Chinese butcher who is obsessed with his new source of fresh meat. He wants to grind Carlito up.
Larry: (notices Frank) Ah, a customer.
Frank: That guy, over there... I-I mean, uh... that meat... um...
Larry: Oh? This is good meat, huh? I just got it in here. It's fresh.
Larry: You just wait right there, sir. In a moment, you can try the best ground meat you've ever tasted.
Frank: Whoa... Ground? Wait a minute. Listen. I had something else in mind...
Larry: Zombies are no good! I cannot serve my customers spoiled meat like that. I... have a reputation to uphold! Trust me. I'm a butcher! I've got the best meat in town!
Carlito is dying, but still will not give up any information - and insists that his plan still hasn't been stopped. Just before he finally dies, he hands Frank a locket and asks him to deliver it to Isabela Keyes.
Frank: You're finished. It's over.
Carlito: What about Isabela?
Frank: She is on our side now. She is checking out your computer right now.
Carlito: My purpose in life... has been to get revenge for what you people did to Santa Cabeza... To my hometown. Why... Why was your meat so much more important to you than human life? Why... Why did my people have to die to feed your fat bellies?
Frank: That doesn't excuse what you've done! But I promise the Santa Cabeza story will be told... But I need the password. (shakes Carlito) Hey... Hey! Hey! Stay with me! Give me the computer's password!
Carlito: Hey... Aren't zombies great? I mean, all they do is eat, and eat, and eat. Growing in number... Just like you good red white and blue Americans. It's not over. Not yet...
Frank: (shakes Carlito) Speak! Speak, dammit! What do you mean "it's not over"!?
Carlito: I'm sorry, Isabela...
Carlito: Please give this... to my sister...
