Dead Rising Wiki

"I am no sir! I am Jherii, with two I's! I am about to take home my long-deserved Miss Gigantic California trophy. No one and nothing is getting in my way, do you understand me?"

Jherii Gallo is a psychopath in Dead Rising 3. She is one of seven psychopaths who embody the Seven Deadly Sins. [2] Jherii's sin is Pride.

Jherii may be the most deviating out of all the psychopaths considering the fact that she seems to be only pursuing a personal goal rather than doing something that could harm other people. Jherii is a vain and controlling fitness-obsessed woman. She was to be a contestant in a women's bodybuilding competition called Miss Gigantic California, until it was cancelled because of the zombie outbreak. Due to her muscular appearance, she is frequently mistaken for a man. She is also described as having gender identification issues and a bit of an anger problem, which may explain why she is so easily offended every time she is mistaken for a man.[3]

Her battle theme is called Pride Battle (Blow by Blow) and was composed by Traz Damji from The Humble Brothers.

Look in the Mirror[]

Main article: Look in the Mirror

Jamie Flynt will call Nick Ramos about somebody at the Yoh-Gah! gym during Chapter 5. Nick enters the Yoh-Gah! gym, where he sees Jherii lifting dumbbells and admiring herself. Nick mistakenly calls her a man while trying to ask her to leave the Gym, enraging her. Jherii angrily explains to Nick that she is going for a bodybuilding contest and that nothing will stop her from achieving her goal, to which Nick replies that the contest was cancelled because of the zombie outbreak. Jherii instead returns to the mirror and flexes, admiring herself, while Nick later flexes alongside her. When Nick accidentally calls her a man for a second time, Jherii becomes furious and proceeds to fight him using a barbell.

After Jherii is defeated, she walks towards a trophy stand in the gym, reciting the motivational mantra played over the speakers, where she accidentally pulls the stand down, crushing herself. Nick then mockingly flexes his muscles.

The Prideful achievement unlocks after she is killed.[4]

Battle Style[]

  • Fighting with her barbell, Jherii can perform a devastating 3-5 hit combo that does a hefty amount of damage.
  • At times, she will run over to a dumbbell stand and hurl the dumbbells towards Nick. This serves as her long ranged attack.
  • She can also simply toss a simple weight plate at Nick. This attack is triggered by distance and ranged attacks.
  • Jherii can also charge against Nick with her barbell and if she is successful, she will slam Nick against the floor. Failure to move the left stick back and forth repeatedly fast enough will result in Jherii crushing Nick's chest and punching him.
  • At 50% health, she gains a spinning attack, where she will spin around in circles, hitting anything that ends up in her way. She ends this attack by slamming her barbell overhead against the ground. She also gains a similar attack at 50% health where she just does the overhead barbell slam.
  • If Jherii's grab gets countered, her pride will be hurt and she will go to a mirror and start exercising. This is her weakness and will allow Nick to chain attack her. He can grab Jherii by pressing Ybutton and B button, and can then hit her repeatedly.
  • Her attacks will do anywhere from 25 to 50 damage per hit.[5]
  • Throwing any melee weapons to her will inflicted extra damage to her, especially blunt category weapons.
  • You can taunt her by saying "You look strong" when connected to the Kinect.


  • Her surname Gallo means "rooster" in Spanish. It also means "big man" or "tough guy" in a colloquial expression of the same language, likely a reference to her masculine appearance.
  • The logo on her back in her concept art is not present in the full game, but if you look closely in her opening cut scene it is darker in that same area of her shirt.
  • Jherii's voice actress, Robin Coleman, is also a professional female bodybuilder.
  • Her name might a reference to the film "My Cousin Vinny," as Jerry Gallo was one of the fake names the main character supplied to the judge as a way of burgeoning his credentials as a lawyer.
  • If you look closely at the bloodstain on the floor while she is walking to the trophy case in the final cutscene, you can see that she leaves boot prints, not footprints, despite being barefoot in her cutscenes and battle.
  • If you're at level 50, you can instantly kill Jherii by throwing a dumbbell at her head.
  • Jherii shows signs of Narcissistic Personality Disorder (due to her grandiose self-image and extreme sensitivity to insults, in addition to a lack of empathy), Borderline Personality Disorder (due to her angry and often sudden mood swings, which in turn suggest extreme emotional instability), and also Intermittent Explosive Disorder (in her violent and aggressive behavior caused by any sort of provocation).
    • While Jherii is meant to represent the sin of "Pride", she also embodies "Greed" (Albert Contiello's sin) due to selfishly obsessed at winning the "Miss Gigantic California" trophy, and also embodies "Envy" (Kenny's sin) as she sees herself as better than Nick (despite the fact Nick [who is unaware of this] has no interest in competing against Jherii) and wants to beat him in any way. She even embodies "Wrath" (Zhi's sin) in that she is easily angered when mistaken as a man.
  • Her death is ironic because she is determined to win a trophy and be the best, and yet she ends up being crushed by a trophy case (and several trophies were inside said trophy case) when she is defeated by Nick.
    • Her death also may be a reference to the phrase "pride comes before a fall", since she forces a trophy case to fall on her after boasting about her desires to be the best, in other words she fell after expressing arrogant degrees of pride for herself.
  • Another ironic echo to her sin of pride is coined by how excessive narcissisms plays into the character's misfortune. Vanity tends to be rather hideous by nature, a trait personified by Jherii's over muscled appearance stripping away whatever natural femininity or inherent beauty she might've had due to constant workout regimens incited during the outbreak. Her ire of being mistaken for a man was a self-inflicted fault due to her self-centered obsessive compulsive tendencies.
  • Jherii is the only Psychopath themed after one of the Seven Deadly Sins whose theme isn't some form of electronic music.
