Dead Rising Wiki

"I killed 48 of 'em during the big outbreak, I ain't gonna let no dead un's get me now."
—Doris, after being rescued

Doris Elchart is a survivor in Dead Rising 2 found in Fortune City during the mission Lost.... Doris is a woman with a Southern twang who will not go anywhere without her husband Chad. She reappears in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record with the same role.


Main article: Lost...

After the outbreak, Doris and Chad were separated during the outbreak and were supposed to meet up at a spot they picked out, but the number of zombies made it difficult to do so. Doris is atop a Souvenir Kiosk surrounded by zombies. She is shooting and fighting back the zombies as she calls out for her husband for help. She will only join Chuck if her husband is brought with him, or informed that he has been evacuated to the Safe House already.

Doris will spawn at Finders Peepers in Palisades Mall armed with an LMG. Once defeated she drops her weapon and $10,000.


  • Chad is 32 years older than Doris.
  • She shares the same face model and clothes as Tia Hernandaz of Dead Rising 2: Case Zero and the same top as Leah, only with different colored clothing, shoes and a necklace.
  • Doris says in the Safe House that she kept a kill count of 48 zombies while defending herself on top of the souvenir shack.
  • As with most couple survivors, if her husband is killed by the zombies or Chuck, Doris will defect and attack Chuck.
    • But Chad will not defect if Doris dies by either zombies or being killed by Chuck.
  • If Chad dies before reaching Doris, it is still possible to only save Doris, and if he died before you talk to Doris, Doris will not mention anything about Chuck starting the outbreak and will join almost immediately. If you talk to her before Chad and he is not dead, she won't join Chuck unless he goes to find Chad and bring him back to her, or tell her that he has died or is already at the safe house.
    • If Chad has already died before talking to Doris and she still joins you, Doris may cry the whole way back to the safe house, unless you have the Leadership magazine, then she won't cry at all.
  • The notebook lists her as "A feisty grandmother" but she is only 28. However, this could imply that Chad has grandkids from a previous marriage, thus making her their new grandmother.
  • Doris will give Erotica points when her breasts are photographed.
  • Doris is one of the slowest survivors in the game and despite being much younger than Chad, she moves a lot slower than he does (most likely due to her wearing high heels). The Leadership magazine does not help make her run faster.
