Dead Rising Survivors

Josh Manning is a Dead Rising survivor in the scoop The Hatchet Man, one of the three hostages held by Cliff Hudson.


  • On being rescued Josh says: "I bet even that machete guy was just a nice old man before all this happened." Indicating that Josh has begun to forgive Cliff Hudson for his captivity.
  • In Infinity Mode, Josh is found at the Heliport, he is hostile, armed with a Machete and when killed, Frank finds a Grapefruit on his corpse.
  • His weapon choice is ironic in Infinity Mode, due to the fact that he was held captive by Cliff Hudson, with a machete, during the main game.
