Dead Rising Wiki

"If you really want to help, look for others who got caught up on this mess!"

Hernando Arisa is a survivor appearing in Dead Rising 2: Case West. He appears after Case 1-2: Access Codes is completed, very close to the Shipping Office.

After Case 1-2: Access Codes is completed, Hernando can be found standing on a couple of boxes, surrounded by zombies in the Loading Bay by the Shipping Office. He is shouting for help and once the zombies have been killed, he blames Frank West and Chuck Greene for the zombie nightmare in the facility, but asks the pair to help find Lisa Hersey. He then runs off to safety.

Thankfully Hernando escaped! How he escaped the laboratory during the outbreak is not known, as the security was tight. Study hard now!

(Unintelligible. A Segway is pictured)

Holiday combo weapon research

I have been working with the institute for four days. Today I rest as it is Christmas Eve.


I was in the lab.

I made a weapon today, inspired by talking to friends and colleagues. I enjoy thinking about things like this on my free time.

The gun is on the right. Can this gun be more powerful?

Three days at the laboratory and already am doing some serious work with a lot of documents. I am doing full scale zombie experiments, which is scary. My summary will go to the senior staff today. Please forgive the way I was yesterday.

House tour part 1

Hello. Starting work today. I saw the zombies and received a tour of the facility. The facility size is huge, but it is easy to get around, so the chance of getting lost is unlikely. The institute is highly guarded with security guards.

Nice to meet you everyone! I just started working for a pharmaceutical company and once again I am making a blog for my friend Itadakimashita in Japan.

I am posting this on the tape it or die site, because I enjoy zombie sites. Please return to read this blog again.

To the right is the picture of the facility. I hope this opens the door to a new life!

The blog here is going to explain my working life in the laboratory, I will be studying zombies. So if you are interested by all means, please continue reading.


  • Failing to save Hernando, or killing him before being told about Lisa, will result in Lisa becoming unsavable.
    • However, killing him after "The Search for Lisa" has activated will still allow Lisa to be saved.
