Frank West



Game of Origin:
Dead Rising

Origin:

When designing the main character of Dead Rising, Keiji Inafune, wanted the main
character to not be either good looking or ugly, but more an average American.

Story:

Frank West was just an Average Joe reporter who came to Willamette, Colorado
to get the story of a lifetime. At first, Frank thought it was just a riot with many
people attacking one another, but when he reaches the Willamette Parkview Mall,
he realizes he has gotten himself into a zombie outbreak.

After escaping the first wave of zombies, Frank ends up in the security room with
three other survivors; Brad Garrison and Jessica McCarney, 2 DHS agents, and
Otis Washington, a janitor at the mall. Frank decides to venture into the mall and
discover what's going on. He later runs into Jessie who tells him Brad is under fire
from a terrorist. Frank later dispatches the Terrorist, Carlito Keyes, and becomes
involved with rescuing a scientist who was involved with a previous zombie
outbreak in Santa Cabeza.

Design:

Frank wears a brown leather jacket, with a white button-down undershirt, and
brown pants with brown loafers. Frank also carries his trusty camera around his
neck throughout the entire game.

Frank can also get new looks through out the mall, such as suits and ties to
cartoonish Servbot heads.

Theme:

Frank has a simple catchy theme that plays at the end of Dead Rising:

Frank also got a new theme in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom:

Why he's awesome:

When it comes to Average Joes, Frank West is the Chuck Norris among them,
Frank uses his incredible decapitation skills and weapon skill to stop anything and
everything in his path.

- Frank West can jump off a 2.5 story drop and land on his knee and walk it off like it's nothing.
- Frank West can kill people with lipstick.
- Frank West can decapitate people with karate chops.
- Frank West can barrel roll to escape danger.
- Frank West is like messiah of video games, all he does is save people (when he isn't killing people).
- Frank West can shove his hand through a bullet proof vest and someones body, and then remove their intestinal track.
- Frank West can shove people so hard, they run like idiots until they trip over themselves and the force of tripping kills them.
- Frank West has fought an evil clown that juggled chain-saws and won.
- Frank West can shoot down helicopters with golf balls.
- Frank West can tase you bro.
- When Frank was forced to fight in his undies, he still went on like it was nothing.
- Frank can use the Mega Buster.
- Frank West took on a tank, and won.
- Frank West can wear anything and still look awesome in it.
- Frank West can throw gems so hard, it goes through you.
- He's Covered Wars You Know?
- Frank can beat you to death with a teddy bear (How is that possible?).
- Frank mastered the Double Lariat.
- Frank can ride a speed ride without a seat belt.
- Frank hot-wired a car not to escape, but to kill more zombies.
- Frank can throw a magazine so hard, it can kill his enemies.
- Frank is a master lightsaber user.
- Frank knows how to Sparta kick.
- Frank makes saying "Oh My Gosh" both hilarious and deadly.
- Frank can pick up a Mech and hit it with a bat, send it to the moon, and then have it reenter Earth in aroud 5 seconds.
- Frank can own his enemies with his enemies.
- Frank can make the action of steeping on a bug epic.

I decided to do a list in the end to show how awesome the character I review is,
I'll fix Kefka's review later on.

Re: Frank West

It is, how does a man shoot a helicopter down with golf balls?
Or trip someone so hard it kills them?
Or shove a hand through a bullet-proof vest?

Frank is scary tough.

Re: Frank West

There's a reason ScrewAttack put Frank at number 3 on the top manliest character list:
[ame=http://www.gametrailers.com/video/top-20-screwattack/100242]ScrewAttack Video Game, Top 20 Manliest Men: 10-1 | Video Clip | Game Trailers & Videos | GameTrailers.com[/ame]

Above Captain Falcon, Dante, Lance/Bill, Big Boss, and Sargent Johnson.
That says alot.

I told you to wait on these as a compromise was being worked on.
