- "Frank! We've got a situation in the Security Room! That Kindell guy snapped man! He said the helicopter wasn't comin' and now he's tryin' to rile everyone up so they'll go with him to find another way out. If we don't do somethin', he'll take everybody with him and bolt! You gotta get back here quick!"

Kindell's Betrayal is a scoop in Dead Rising. It takes place in the Security Room in the afternoon of the third day. It involves Kindell Johnson, who has decided to rally up the other survivors to seek another escape route.
Kindell Johnson believes that the promised helicopter will not be coming to rescue them. He rallies up the other survivors in the Security Room to head out and seek another escape route. His plan is to get a bunch of weapons, hotwire some cars from the parking lot, and escape, though he understands that not everyone will make it. Frank West arrives to convince Kindell that going back into the mall is suicide, and even if they do escape the mall, the military is going to interfere. He persuades Kindell to postpone his plan until after noon on September 22, after the time Ed DeLuca promised to arrive. Kindell agrees to do so, and tells the other survivors that the plan has been delayed.
If Frank fails to stop Kindell's mutiny in time, Kindell will disappear along with all survivors in the same room as he is, never to be seen again.
The following are the survivors who will leave with Kindell, assuming they have been rescued and brought back to the Security Room:
- Rich Atkins
- Wayne Blackwell
- Jennifer Gorman
- Gil Jimenez
- Josh Manning
- Jeff Meyer
- Natalie Meyer
- Barbara Patterson
- Gordon Stalworth
- Leah Stein
- Kindell Johnson
- Mutiny Averted Bonus: 10,000
- In order to activate this scoop, Kindell Johnson must be rescued in the unmarked scoop Dressed for Action in addition to at least three survivors from the above list.
- If there are not three other people in the Security Room besides Kindell by 12pm, the scoop will not trigger. But if Frank saves enough people to put three or more people in the Security Room after 12pm but before 5pm, then the scoop will trigger. However, the deadline for the scoop will still be 5pm no matter what.
- Rich Atkins, Josh Manning, Barbara Patterson, and Gordon Stalworth are absent from Kindell's Mutiny in Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop, due to The Hatchet Man and The Coward being absent as well.
