Dead Rising Wiki

"Mathematically, the odds against survival get exponentially higher with each hour."
—Kevin, upon being rescued

Kevin Meyers is a survivor in Dead Rising 2 found at the South Plaza and is involved with the mission Brains Over Brawn. He reappears in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record with the same role.

He was also mentioned on the Tape it or Die website in a blog, having been found by Gretchen while she searched the city for supplies.

Tape It or Die[]

Gretchen Peregrine explains in her Tape it or Die blog, that she found Kevin in the South Plaza. He and his friends, John Boog, Curtis Ellenton, and Brian Scherbey, were found playing a board game in a construction zone. Their behavior deterred Gretchen from escorting them to Johnny Pipes's hide out. The quad of men managed to slip their business cards in Gretchen's pocket just as she was leaving.

Brains Over Brawn[]

Main article: Brains Over Brawn

In the mission Brains Over Brawn, Chuck finds John and his three friends, Curtis Ellenton, John Boog, and Brian Scherbey, huddled over a board game in an unfinished shop in the South Plaza mall. Chuck attempts to convince the costumed men to join him so he can lead them to safety at the Fortune City Emergency Shelter. However, they refuse to listen. As soon as Chuck mentions that there are women in the shelter, John and his friends finally agree and follow Chuck to the safe house.

Alternatively, if a young, female survivor is in Chuck's party, John and his friends will immediately join Chuck after noticing that he has a girl with him.
