"Hey! Look, boss!"
—TK's Bodyguard, pointing out Chuck/Frank

TK's Bodyguard is the unofficial name of an unnamed mercenary working alongside Tyrone "TK" King during his attempted heist of the casino vaults in Fortune City. He only appears in cutscenes and can be faintly seen during the TK's Helicopter fight. He is killed in the resulting helicopter crash.

The bodyguard reappears in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record with the same role and is involved in the same cases in Dead Rising 2 as well as a new case, Case 5-2: Kidnapped!

Main article: Case 3-2: Run for the Money

The bodyguard helps TK with the casino heist operation, moving equipment on the train and directing goons to drill into the casino vaults. He and TK are atop of a rooftop on the Atlantica Casino where they watch Chuck defeat his mercenaries and blow up their armored van. The bodyguard stands beside him, looking on as TK becomes infuriated with the mess that's falling before him...yet he decides to continue on despite this setback, smacking his bodyguard over the head as he walks walks off.

Case 5-2: The Getaway[]

Main article: Case 5-2: The Getaway

Later when Chuck learns of an attempted escape via helicopter at the Fortune City Hotel rooftop, the bodyguard is seen once again loading what's left of the money into the helicopter, dropping a case while working on it. TK turns around to scold him, calling him a fool while warning him to be careful with what's left of their money. It's then that his bodyguard spots Chuck and points him out. TK notices Chuck, suddenly becoming worried about his plans and orders for them to take off with TK sitting in the passenger seat while his bodyguard sits in the back, next to a mounted minigun. Chuck runs quickly towards the chopper with a hook attached to a crane and lands it on the landing bars of the chopper, forcing it to stay on the rooftop tangled by the hook.

TK's fury makes him decide to kill Chuck, by having his bodyguard fire the minigun at him. Chuck dodges the fire and eventually Chuck manages to destroy the helicopters blades, which causes it to spin out of control; first throwing TK from the chopper which then crashes on the helipad. The impact instantly kills the bodyguard as well as the pilot, while throwing TK himself off to the side from the explosion (leaving him alive but unconscious).

Trivia[]

  • While having a similar appearance to one set of mercenaries seen in the Fortune City Hotel lobby, there are some distinctive differences in his facial structure as well as his overall suit to set him apart from them.
  • In Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, when on on the rooftop overlooking the Atlantica heist and about to leave the city on the hotel rooftop, he is in his suit and wearing sunglasses. But when he is in the Shoal Nightclub, he is not wearing his jacket and sunglasses.
  • The PC file items.txt refers to this character model as mercenary_pheno.
  • The PC file missions.txt shows when TK's Bodyguard appears on the hotel.[1]
