David Bailey is a survivor appearing in Dead Rising and Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop. He is involved with the quest Shadow of the North Plaza.

Shadow of the North PlazaEdit

In Shadow of the North Plaza David is found hiding in an unfinished store in North Plaza. He is terrified when Frank finds him, and asks if he is one of the good guys. He reveals that he was injured when a Steven Chapman attacked him while he was trying to get food from the supermarket, claiming David was shoplifting. Frank offers to help him back to the Security Room by offering his shoulder.


Depending on the ending, David was either rescued by Ed DeLuca, taken into custody by the Special Forces and eventually released, or killed by Carlito Keyes' bombs.

Infinity ModeEdit

In Infinity Mode David is found in Hamburger Fiefdom in the Al Fresca Plaza from midnight to 7 a.m. on the seventh day. He carries a mailbox. After he is killed, he drops a yogurt and some other items.

  • In the beta version of Dead Rising, David is named David Garrison, the same last name as Brad Garrison.[1]
  • David is wearing a wedding band, suggesting that he is married. If he is indeed married, then it is unknown what happened to his wife. Taking a picture of this wedding band will give Frank a Drama genre bonus.
  • David's reason for being injured is different in Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop. Instead of being shot by Steven, he said he sprained his ankle while trying to escape from the zombies.
  • He shares his last name with Amber and Crystal Bailey, two of the main characters/psychopaths in Dead Rising 2 though no relationship is implied or confirmed.
  • David's character model bears some resemblance to Ryan LaRosa's model.
