Dead Rising Wiki

"My Daddy will always keep me safe."
—Katey Greene

Katey Ann Greene, also known as Annie, is a character appearing in Dead Rising: Road to Fortune, one of the two tritagonists of Dead Rising 2, and the deuteragonist of Dead Rising 2: Case Zero and Dead Rising 3.

Katey is the daughter of motocross champion Chuck Greene and his late wife Pam. After being bitten and infected by her zombified mother, Katey needs to be given a daily dose of Zombrex to prevent herself from turning into a zombie (two doses a day in Case Zero).

In Dead Rising 2: Case Zero (2008) she is four years old; in Dead Rising 2 (2011) she is seven years old; in Dead Rising 3 (2021) she is seventeen years old.[1][2]

In Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, Katey does not appear although she is mentioned by her unstable father and is represented by a life-size doll of a little girl, indicating that Katey did not survive the outbreak in Frank West's re-imagining of Fortune's End.

In Dead Rising 3, she continues to find and use her own Zombrex from a box even though most of the population has been implanted with Zombrex chips. This allows her to live "off the grid" and avoid being monitored by the government.

Dead Rising: Road to Fortune[]

In the first issue of the series, Katey is briefly seen at the end of the story heading to Las Vegas with her parents. She expresses her excitement over winning the big money in Chuck's upcoming motocross tournament. Chuck happily agrees with her, and promises that this trip will soon change their lives "forever".

At the site of Chuck Greene's motocross tournament in the Las Vegas Arena, the crowd is cheering wildly, anxiously awaiting the start of the race. As Chuck mounts his bike, he tells Katey he loves her and shares a kiss with his wife Pam (neither of them knowing this would be their last kiss). Pam takes Katey to the stands to watch the race and Chuck rolls up to the starting line.

Over in the crowd, unbeknownst to anyone, Phenotrans security chief, Harjit Singh and his team of undercover Phenotrans' agents are eying the spectators meticulously. Each of them is carrying a jar full of queens, waiting for the opportune moment to release them into the city.

The race begins, and Chuck quickly gains a solid lead over his competitors. With his wife and daughter cheering him on, Chuck soars high above the crowd and leaves the other racers behind in a cloud of dust. Meanwhile, Harjit decides the time is "now", and drops his jar of queens to the ground. Knowing that is the signal, the other Phenotrans' agents do the same, and people start getting infected left and right. As Chuck makes another pass, a cheering Pam Greene is suddenly stung in the neck by a queen. When Katey asks her what happened, Pam shrugs it off and says that it was nothing more than a "bee sting". At this point, Harjit and his men have exited the arena and are driving out of Vegas as quickly as possible. Harjit makes a phone call to his boss, Marian Mallon, and tells her that so far, everything is going according to plan.

Chuck Greene eventually crosses the finish line in first place and triumphantly takes off his helmet and smiles happily. Happiness is quickly replaced with shock as he finally takes notice of what's happening in the stands. The "Las Vegas Outbreak" has begun. In a panic, Chuck frantically searches the zombified crowd for signs of his family. Likewise, within the crowd, Pam is desperately trying to protect Katey from the zombies; kicking or pushing aside any that get too close to them, and making her way towards the track as she tries to locate her husband. Chuck and Pam finally spot each other, and Chuck ramps up his bike. But before he can go another mile, a zombie suddenly jumps him and knocks Chuck off his bike. Chuck manages to kill the zombie and reaches his family, but while Katey seems fine, something strange is happening to Pam. At that moment Pam Greene's zombification completes itself, and she lunges at Katey, biting her in the left arm. Chuck kicks his undead wife away and tries to subdue her, but she overpowers him and knocks him to the ground. As Pam starts moving towards Katey again, Chuck grabs a screwdriver and impales his wife through the skull.

After Pam dies, Chuck realizes that Katey is going to need Zombrex and hastily prepares to escape the city. As the two Greenes make their final preparations, Katey asks her father whether mommy was coming with them. In response, Chuck sadly glances over at Pam's corpse, mumbles to himself, helps Katey onto his bike, and tells her that this time, they were leaving mommy behind.

Katey's First Zombrex

Katey receives her very first dose of Zombrex.

Chuck and Katey frantically attempt to escape from the zombie-infested city. Chuck manages to blast through the crowd of zombies standing around his pickup truck (even though it costs him his bike), and hastily ushers Katey in. Ramping up the engine, Chuck's truck crashes its way out of the arena and onto the Vegas Strip where Chuck desperately begins searching for a pharmacy which may have some Zombrex. Luckily, he doesn't have to go too far.

Unfortunately, Chuck realizes that getting out of his truck under these circumstances would be plain suicide. So he tells Katey to cover her face and crashes the truck through one of the pharmacy's windows instead. Placing Katey on the checkout counter, Chuck begins searching the shelves for Zombrex. Finally, he succeeds and turns around just in time to see a zombified pharmacy worker advancing on Katey. Chuck gets the zombie's attention, and the two of them engage in a fierce battle with Chuck ultimately prevailing. Suddenly, Katey's skin changes to a sickly-gray color and her eyes begin to turn red, she begins moaning in a sound that would become all-too-familiar if Chuck didn't act fast. In desperation, Chuck whips out the Zombrex and injects Katey through the neck (as opposed to her arm). Katey goes limp and doesn't make another sound. For the moment, Chuck thinks he has lost her and somberly clutches her in his arms. But then Katey says "Ow, daddy that hurt!" and happiness enters Chuck's life once again. Together they make their way back to Chuck's truck (killing a few zombies in the process) and manage to get out of the city without being detected by the military.

At the series' conclusion, Chuck and Katey drive past a road sign reading "Welcome to Still Creek, Population 753".

Dead Rising 2: Case Zero[]

Katey and her father arrive in Still Creek after fleeing from Las Vegas, and all is calm until the zombies appear and their truck is stolen by an unidentified survivor. She stays in the Brockett Gas Station as her father looks for Zombrex and a way out before the military arrives to wipe out everything within 50 miles of Las Vegas, including Still Creek. Later that night, after receiving her second dose of Zombrex, a psychotic mechanic arrives at the gas station and tries to kill Katey when he learns she is infected. Chuck manages to kill the mechanic, and he and Katey escape Still Creek on a motorcycle soon after, just as the military begins their cleanup operation.

Dead Rising 2[]

Katey comes to Fortune City with her father before the outbreak. Because of the steep cost of Zombrex, Chuck Greene becomes a contestant in Terror Is Reality in order to make money for her Zombrex. During the contest, Katey is taken to the green room by the TiR Employee. Off panel, during the outbreak, a zombie manages to get into the room and kill the employee. Katey quickly hides in a locker and remains there until her father finds her.They run through the arena and they arrive at the Emergency Shelter where Raymond Sullivan comments on her bite. He allows her to enter the bunker when Chuck tells him that he has Zombrex although he does not.

When Chuck leaves the bunker, as he must do multiple times in the course of the story, Katey remains behind. Stacey Forsythe looks after her in Chuck's absence. At least once every 24 hours, Chuck must return to her to administer Zombrex to her. Throughout the course of his stay in Fortune City, Chuck can also bring his daughter several gifts.

After defeating Sullivan, Chuck calls Channel 6 Action News to pick up the survivors in the bunker. Katey and Stacey board one of the helicopters but she realizes she left her backpack behind. Chuck goes to fetch the backpack but is overwhelmed by a zombified Tyrone King and other zombies. Katey and Stacey are told to flee the city in the helicopter.

Katey Turning[]

Zombrex is extremely important in Dead Rising 2 and Case Zero so Katey does not turn. Failure to get Katey Zombrex will result in Ending F in both Case Zero and Dead Rising 2. Unlike in Case Zero, failure to give Katey her Zombrex in Dead Rising 2 will not immediately end the game. Instead, a cutscene will play that changes depending on if Chuck is in the Emergency Shelter or outside of it.

After the cutscene, a message will appear saying Katey Has Turned. When Chuck returns to the security room in the Safe House there is a second cutscene similar to Case Zero's cutscene if Chuck is outside the Brockett Gas Station when she turned. Chuck drops to his knees, pounding his fist on the ground in both scenes.

Overtime Mode[]

In Overtime Mode, Chuck returns to the Safe House after defeating Sullivan, TK escapes from his restraints and kidnaps Katey and Stacey. He ties them up and lowers them into the crowd of zombies back in the Fortune City Arena. Chuck heads for the Arena after collecting a variety of items to apprehend Tyrone. However, Chuck is knocked out by Tyrone but manages to defeat him, throwing him off the catwalks to his death. Afterwards, he is able to free Stacey and Katey and the three of them walk off to safety.

Dead Rising 3[]

Main article: Annie
Annie Close Up

Katey, now going by the alias of Annie.

After the events of Dead Rising 2, Chuck began a relationship with Stacey, who became a motherly figure for Katey. However, in 2017 government Zombrex chipping became law, forcing Chuck to go to illegal means to keep Katey from being chipped and tracked by the government. This slowly turned Chuck into a shadow of his former self; he began making terrible mistakes. This withered his relationship with Stacey, and after the relationship ended, Katey felt she was a burden on Chuck and ran away. She then began using her middle name, Annie, in order to evade Chuck. She soon joined the group of Illegals in Los Perdidos.

When the Los Perdidos outbreak occurs, Annie joins Nick Ramos and other survivors. Three days later, she returns to the Illegals, where they intended to fight the government who were murdering survivors.

Nick soon returns to Annie, after receiving a deal from Gary Finkel to turn her into his boss for fuel that he could use for the plane. However, feeling guilty, Nick shortly regrets attempting to go through with the plan. He then begins working with Annie and Red.

Throughout the game, Nick and Annie begin developing feelings for one another. Annie confesses to Nick that prior to the events of Dead Rising 3 she was in a relationship with Ronal Jackson, but this did not last. After Red turns on them, Annie assists Nick in defeating him. After Red's death, Nick and Annie's feelings for each other reach a climax and they kiss.

This is shortly followed by the return of Chuck, who is revealed to be Gary's boss. Although wary of each other at first, Nick and Chuck soon become allies when they work together to stop General John Hemlock from harvesting the king zombies as a weapon. Once Hemlock is defeated, Katey escapes the city along with Nick, Chuck, Dick Baker, and Isabela Keyes along with the survivors Nick had saved.

At the end of the game, Annie and Nick began a relationship.

    • Hums
    • Says: "I hate those stupid zombies."
    • Says: "I wish I had something to play with."

Vintage Newspapers 4
  • In one of the newspaper collectibles in Dead Rising 4, there is an article that can be found celebrating Katey's birth. According to the article, Katey was born in Las Vegas, Nevada at exactly 7:38PM, although a specific date isn't given. But because Katey was 4 years old at the time of Case Zero (in 2008), it's likely that she was born in 2004.
  • Not counting Snowflake, Katey is the youngest character in the series.
  • Katey bears similarities with Sherry Berkin and Ellie Williams from zombie franchises Resident Evil and The Last of Us, respectively. All three are infected young girls that accompany the protagonist, whom canonically survive and are playable as young adults in their next appearance.
