"Want me to take a photo of you? This may be the last time we see each other."
—Frank West

Frank West (フランク・ウェスト Furanku Uesuto?) is the lead character of Capcom's 2006 open survival horror game, Dead Rising. He would later appear in the downloadable Case West and later Dead Rising 2's non-canon re-imagining, Dead Rising 2: Off the Record. He was originally designed by Capcom to appeal to western audiences. In his series, Frank is a freelance journalist and photographer who ends up getting caught in a zombie outbreak.

Outside of the Dead Rising series, he has appeared in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

Crosspedia EntryEdit

A world-renowned freelance journalist. Always on the trail of a scoop, his sense of curiosity and adventure has often propelled him into dangerous situations. One day, seeking the scoop of a lifetime, he arrived in the small suburban town of Willamette, Colorado, to be faced by a horde of zombies. With the physical strength developed from his time covering wars and a variety of weapons scrounged up on-site, he defeated the zombies and led survivors to safety, while at the same time exposing the truth behind the outbreak. Having come back alive from hell itself, he published his articles for all the world to see, making a name as a unique and brave hero.
