Dead Rising
Overview (cases/scoops) • BooksClothingFoodPsychopathsStoresSurvivorsWeapons

Frank will encounter psychopaths - survivors of the zombie outbreak who are aggressive towards Frank. Often, they've taken other survivors hostage and will attempt to kill them.

While the term psychopath is used as an umbrella term for all of the game's bosses, some of these people are sane. Most of them are actually driven mad by the outbreak, such as Adam, Cliff, and Steven, a couple are corrupt people taking advantage of the situation like Jo Slade and the Convicts, while others are simply overcautious such as the Hall Family and Cletus. Brock Mason, in particular, is not mad or insane, but a soldier carrying out his orders, though with cruel intentions, he takes pleasure in killing innocent people.
