- "I'm never going to the mall again as long as I live. I've had about enough of this."
- —Natalie, upon being rescued
Natalie Meyer is a survivor appearing in Dead Rising. She can be found on the rooftop near the door to the warehouse during the unmarked scoop Love Lasts a Lifetime. She has been separated from her husband, Jeff, and will require Frank's help to get back to him.
Natalie is found on the far end of the rooftop early on the first day. She will call out to Frank and ask for his assistance if approached, and will easily agree to join him. Alternatively, Frank can recruit Jeff before approaching Natalie.
When she comes near Jeff, they will notice each other and hug upon being reunited, allowing Frank to photograph them for a Photo Op. Frank will then interrupt them and offer to bring them to a safer place.
After being rescued, she will wait in the room with the green door. When Kindell Johnson believes that there is no helicopter coming in three days, he rallies up the other survivors in the same room, including Natalie, to make a break for it. If Frank does not stop Kindell's mutiny, Natalie will leave the Security Room along with the other survivors. They will no longer count towards the number of rescued survivors.

Natalie will defect, backing up from Frank in fear, if her husband is continuously beat up or killed by zombies.
- Unlike Jeff, Natalie says nothing to Frank about the two being separated.
- Jeff will roam the Rooftop, often running toward Frank. This makes it possible to reunite Natalie with him without speaking to either of them.
- If an upskirt photo of Natalie is taken, the target markers will register as the Horror genre instead of Erotica. However this might be done for humorous reasons because of her age.
- A picture of Natalie's wedding band will register as the Drama genre.
- In the beta version of Dead Rising, Natalie, along with Jeff, can be found in the Entrance Plaza.
- If Jeff is killed before Natalie is recruited, she won't defect, but will cry upon seeing his corpse.
