"How many tattoos you think Rhonda's got? Maybe she'd let me count 'em later, hm?"
—Dick making lewd comments about Rhonda.

Dick Baker is a character in Dead Rising 3.

When joining a co-op game, the player will control Dick, and play alongside Nick Ramos. Unlike any other character in the past (with the exception of Frank in Case West), he also makes an appearance throughout the game's main story even when you are not playing co-op.

He's is a truck driver who stops in Los Perdidos and gets trapped there, due to the current outbreak happening at the time.[1] He travels alongside Nick Ramos, Annie, and Rhonda Kreske.[2]

Prequel Comic[]

Dick first pops in with a makeshift Flamethrower to save Nick and the thief of a car he'd brought in after Nick and his new associate Annie came out running from a hoard of zombies. He and Nick begin hitting it off after the latter notices the marvel of recombinant engineering the wayward trucker used to save them from the mob.

Having already rallied with a posse of other survivors beforehand, Dick wonders if he and Annie would join them in finding the nearest exit to get outta dodge. Much to his dismay however, they run into the Zombie Defense and Control at a chipping outpost barring their path.

After Annie chews them out for obstructing the much needed respite of surviving uninfected by drumming up just how much they know about the current situation with all the security around town. Dick steps in and hoses the ZDC with his fire spitter in order to help everyone beat a hasty exit. After which they continue fighting off zombies and dodging military choppers firing on undead and living alike.

At that moment; whilst dodging missile fire from Spec Ops, the trio and whomever's left of their travel companions are saved by Rhonda. Who rides in on a semi mowing over several undead. To which they all retreat to The Dilly Diner in order to plan their next move.

Dead Rising 3[]

When next seen he's at the Diner after Nick arrives. He supposedly went out hunting for supplies like former had, but all he found was a sledgehammer. Once Peter and Amanda Rae die, Nick takes the sledgehammer Dick found and creates a sledgesaw. Dick and Rhonda escape with Nick to Rhonda's Garage.

Once there, Rhonda kills a zombie and tells Dick to check the area for any others. After searching, Dick reports back that the area is clear of zombies. Dick will be able to team up with Nick as a co-op partner once he gets the transceiver.

Afterwards, Dick doesn't have much story significance. He'll appear in main story cutscenes from time to time, but usually stays in the background.

Near the end of Chapter 6 (The Collectors, Dick, along with Nick and Diego Martinez go to gather the rest of the survivors. When outside, they get raided by Spec Ops. It's not revealed what the Spec Ops did with Dick, but they did leave him alive, as he can be seen in the hangar afterwards.

Trivia[]

  • Dick wears a Shanks cap, referencing the Shanks store found in Dead Rising 1, 2 and 3.
  • According to a game's developer, Dick has a low tolerance for the gore in-game, and this is shown in the beginning of the game as when Peter's intestines are thrown at the window in front of him, he pukes all over the wall in front of him.
  • His appearance might be a reference to the SNK character Terry Bogard, who is a blonde american man who has long hair, wears a jacket with its sleeves torn off with a white shirt underneath, a pair of jeans, and a signature red and white hat.
  • Just like Frank, Chuck, and Nick, Dick has a "k" at the end of his name.
  • He is a smoker. He can be seen smoking cigarettes while waiting in the warehouse with Rhonda.
  • Despite his occupation being a truck driver, Dick is apparently a very good mechanic, as he can make combo weapons just like Nick can and was seen with the Flamethrower in the prequel comic.
  • Joining another person's game nets the achievement "Be a Dick!", a pun on both Dick's name and a slang for "jerk".
  • He appears to have an attraction to Rhonda Kreske, commenting on her body as well as asking Nick if she'd let him look at all her tattoos, including the ones underneath her clothes.
  • He is the first person from the southern parts of U.S.A to be playable in the Dead Rising series.
  • Regardless of the co-op players clothing, Dick will always be in his default outfit in cutscenes.
  • He was married before the events of Dead Rising 3, which Dick will reveal during the mission Memory Lane if the co-op player is escorting Meryl Jefferson. When Meryl talks about how she bit her ring to see if it was real gold, Dick will say "Ha! My ex-wife thought she'd bite me instead. I like your way better." This suggests his ex-wife became a zombie.
  • His clothing looks similar to Tucker's from the 2004 film Dawn of the Dead.
  • In Dead Rising 4, a mechanic outfit can be found in McKenzie Auto, with Dick being on the name tag. It's unclear if it actually belonged to Dick Baker.
  • Dick is apparently a fan of Willie Nelson. During Love's a Drag, after Adam explains why Bibi Love is playing, Dick will say "I could play some Willie Nelson but -- nah. Listen, I'll deal with them speakers and the zombies, okay?"
  • Dick is the only playable character to have audio for the Super Shout combo weapons that is unique to him. Adam Kane, Angel Quijano, Hunter Thibodeaux and Brad Park all use Nick's audio.
  • In single player, if the player finds Dick after escaping the lab, it's revealed that Dick somehow saw Marian Mallon.
