Dead Rising Wiki

Skylar Ali is a survivor in Dead Rising 2. He was caught up in the zombie outbreak in Fortune City. He reappears in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record with the same role, though he does not help fight back when the Safe House is breached in Case 7-4: Breach.


In the Introduction, Skylar was seen trying to flee with his girlfriend outside the Fortune City Arena, but she was grabbed by a zombie and killed. He was terrified and ran for his life, later bumping into Chuck and Katey on the way to the Fortune City Emergency Shelter. He was later seen lamenting over not being able to rescue his girlfriend, having made it into the shelter along with several other survivors before the doors were sealed. Ray Sullivan cleared him and he headed inside the bunker where he rests in one of the rooms.

Case 6-4: Breach[]

In Case 6-4: Breach when the shelter is breached, he is seen fighting off a crowd of zombies and helping secure the Safe House.

The Facts[]

In The Facts as the rescue team sent by Channel 6 Action News came in to save the survivors, Skylar was seen getting into a helicopter with Tamara Stein. Before he escaped, Chuck asked him if he has seen Stacey or Katey.

Sandbox Mode[]

Skylar is one of the crazed survivors Frank can fight in Sandbox Mode. He will spawn in front of the escalators leading to Shoal Nightclub with a tiki torch. Once defeated he drops his weapon and $10,000.

  • Skylar may be named after two Capcom employees, Skylar White and Anim Ali.
  • There is a unused cinematic cutscene (video below) called 54b_Hack_the_gate.txt after Case 6-4 in which Skylar saved Chuck from a lone zombie in the Safe House, and proceeded to check the rest of the bunker for any straggling zombies. Cutscene dialogue:
    Close call.
    Don't worry, I'll get the rest of them.
  • If the cameras are disabled during the exit the stadium cutscene, Skylar can be seen running away after his girlfriend is killed. However, after he runs off-screen, his model freezes and stays there.[1]
