"I can't stand the idea of just disappearing. So... Take my picture? I want you to take what's beautiful about me and put it inside your camera."

"Oh, geez... I'm all dusty. What I wouldn't give for a shower about now."

Cheryl Jones is a survivor appearing in Dead Rising and Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop.

She is found in Colby's Movieland during the scoop A Strange Group. She was being held captive by the True Eye cult and was locked in a storage closet.

Cut From the Same Cloth[]

Before Frank meets Cheryl in the game, Kent Swanson shows Frank a photo of a provocatively dressed Cheryl in the Entrance Plaza, introducing the photograph as his sexiest shot.

A Strange Group[]

Main article: A Strange Group

Cheryl has been captured by the True Eye cult and is locked inside of a storage closet. She is about to be sacrificed by Sean Keanan, leader of the cult, when Frank arrives to their rescue. After Sean is killed, Frank is able to open the closet where Cheryl is locked up and frees her, along with the other four hostages.

He then convinces them to follow him back to the Security Room.

Ronald's Appetite[]

Main article: Ronald's Appetite

After being rescued, she will wait in the room with the blue door. When Ronald Shiner complains about the lack of food, he rallies up the other survivors in the same room, including Cheryl, to head out and look for food.

If Frank does not stop Ronald's mutiny, Cheryl will leave the Security Room along with the other survivors in the same room. They will no longer count towards the number of rescued survivors.

Cheryl's Request[]

Main article: Cheryl's Request

If Cheryl is saved, she will later have a personal request for Frank. When asked about her request, Cheryl asks that Frank capture her on film. When Frank asks why, she answers that she has no idea how things will turn out and that she does not want to die without leaving an image of herself behind. She poses in a series of provocative poses while Frank photographs her.

It's possible that she escaped Willamette with Otis and the others when the special forces arrived.

Infinity Mode[]

Main article: Infinity Mode

In Infinity Mode, Cheryl appears in the Meat Processing Area from 5:00:00 to 5:07:00 and is armed with a Lipstick Prop. In her equipment she carries a Snack, 2 Lipstick Props and 2 Perfume Props.


  • There are zombies that look very similar to Cheryl.
  • It is essential to rescue Cheryl to get the Transmissionary achievement, as Cheryl's Request will not be available if she was not saved.
  • Cheryl is the only survivor in the game whose face can score an Erotica bonus.
  • Cheryl is the survivor who has appeared in the most scoops - she is directly involved in A Strange Group, Ronald's Appetite, and Cheryl's Request, and appears in a photograph in Cut From the Same Cloth.
  • An unused model present on Xbox 360 Dead Rising discs shows Cheryl holding her breasts and spreading her legs while lying on her back. It can be inferred that this model was intended to be a pose from Cheryl's Request. Though no nudity is present, this model is likely absent in-game due to over-exposure of Cheryl's crotch region, which would have affected the game's ESRB rating.
