"You ROCK! We were zombie bait, without you. Let me know if you have any rich, available friends."
—Lulu, upon being saved[1]

Lulu Barra is a survivor in Dead Rising 2. She is a Playboy model who was caught up in the zombie outbreak in Fortune City. She reappears in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record with the same role, except this time she helps defend the Safe House in Case 7-4: Breach. Her character model is also changed to that of Brittany Beck from Dead Rising 2.

Dead Rising 2: Introduction[]

Shortly after the outbreak, Lulu was able to evacuate to the Fortune City Emergency Shelter with several other survivors before the safe house doors were shut right after the last group, that contained Chuck and Katey, of survivors make it in.

Dead Rising 2: Off the Record[]

Introduction

Shortly after the outbreak, Lulu was able to evacuate to the Fortune City Emergency Shelter with several other survivors before the safe house doors were shut right after the last group, that contained Frank West, of survivors make it in.

Case 7-4
Breach

In Case 7-4: Breach, when the shelter is breached, she is seen being attacked by a crowd of zombies as she fights them off with a broomstick.

Trivia[]

  • Lulu's face can be seen on the Gambling 1 magazine.
  • Lulu's last name is the same name given to a woman who was killed at the Fortune City Arena.
  • According to the game files, Lulu was supposed to be held hostage by Randy Tugman.
  • She is the only survivor in Dead Rising 2 who cannot be killed in the game.
    • Because of this, at some point in the game it is possible that she can be the only person inside the safe house (excluding Stacey Forsythe and Katey Greene) if every other survivor, including the default safe house survivors, have been killed or unsaved.
  • Despite being a default safe house survivor, she will thank Chuck for "saving her" by saying: "You are so awesome!" or "Call me sometime!" of course, she possibly could be one of Chuck's fans. Another possibility is that she was originally going to be a survivor to be rescued by the playable character.
  • In Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, Lulu's character model is the same as Brittany Beck's (who does not exist in Off the Record). This is likely due to the contract between Capcom and Playboy expiring, in which the character Lulu could not use the Playboy model.[2]
  • In Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, if Frank takes a photo of her, he will score Drama points for her face and Erotica points for her cleavage.
  • Lulu could probably be a reference to Cindy Lennox's Funny Bunny alternate costume from Resident Evil: Outbreak.
  • Lulu is probably designed after Linsdey Roeper from the Playboy magazine November, 2007 edition, as her hair and outfit are nearly identical to Linsdey's on the cover.
    • This certain edition of Playboy was all about Las Vegas, casinos and gambling, so it makes sense why Capcom would take inspiration from this edition of the magazine in particular as it fit the game's themes. This edition is also one of the posters that can be seen hanging around the mall.
    • Although you cannot see the back of Linsdey's costume, in other pictures, she also has the white puff ball on the behind of her costume like Lulu does solidifying the theory.
      • This is not a far fetched theory at all as Capcom had a deal with Playboy in terms of marketing, and there are posters of Playboy magazine covers all around the mall, and Lulu appears to be a Playboy bunny. This could be why she is the only survivor in the game who cannot die, as Playboy probably wouldn't have liked if one of their bunnies and the only character that represented their magazine could have been killed, and is also probably why her appearance in Off The Record changed, since Capcom's deal with Playboy had ended.
  • Lulu's notebook picture differs to what Lulu actually wears. Her picture shows her wearing white bunny ears with red on them, a red bow tie and a black and white bunny suit, rather than a plain black bunny suit, ears and bow tie which is what she actually wears.
