- "Whoa... good kitty."
- —Chuck, upon taming Snowflake.
Snowflake is a tiger, who is both a psychopath and survivor, in Dead Rising 2, appearing in the unannounced mission Snowflake Boss Battle. She is found in the Yucatan Casino with Ted Smith. She reappears in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record with the same role.
Snowflake Boss BattleEdit
When Chuck arrives at the Yucatan, he is captured by Ted Smith, who has plans of feeding him to Snowflake due to the lack of fresh meat. When Chuck tries to offer Ted the idea of having Snowflake eat zombies, he denies the proposal, deeming zombies as "spoiled meat".
When Chuck tries to calm Ted down, he uses the word "slow" that enrages Ted and he has Snowflake attack him. However, Chuck is able to defeat Ted and tame Snowflake with a few steaks. Once Snowflake is calm, Chuck can bring her to the safe house.
To tame Snowflake:
- Ted needs to be killed first.
- Snowflake needs to be dropped and eat three pieces of steak.
Snowflake is a Bengal tiger who is trained to perform shows and tricks in the Yucatan Casino by her master, Ted Smith. Ted has been taking care of Snowflake for a very long time, considering her his only friend. After the outbreak, Ted feeds Snowflake fresh meat whenever possible, claiming that all her food has become rotten, and thus attempts to serve Chuck to the tiger.
When saved, Snowflake will stay in the same room as Katey, and can be presented to her as one of the Gifts for Katey.
- Snowflake's and Ted's boss music is Narrow Escape by Celldweller
- Snowflake and Bibi Love are the only two psychopaths that can be saved in Dead Rising 2.
- At just 3 years old, she is the youngest survivor and psychopath in the Dead Rising series thus far. She is also the only Non-Human in both categories.
- There are several posters advertising Snowflake around Fortune City.
- Snowflake cannot traverse certain areas of the city, particularly tight passages or maintenance halls.
- Snowflake may occasionally stop while being escorted to perform a roar in repetition, as if she were blocked from moving, or unable to navigate through the area. If there is no evidence to why Snowflake stopped, or if the reason why she originally stopped has passed (a crowd of zombies blocking the way have now been slaughtered), the only way of correcting this appears to be attacking Snowflake, resetting her AI routine.
- No matter how far away Snowflake is, she will go through area zone transitions with Chuck.
- If Chuck were to tame Snowflake before killing Ted, she will still be a survivor like normal although Ted will be hostile to Snowflake and will attack her.
- In Dead Rising 2: Off the Record:
- Taking a photo of Snowflake eating Steak awards up to 1000 Drama PP, enough for Raw Emotion achievement.
- Frank will shout in a panic "It's a tiger, tiger, tiger, tiger!!!!!" after Ted and Snowflake's intro cutscene.
- Frank will say "So, you're an orange cat called Snowflake....." after the cutscene that plays after she's tamed.
- (If by any chance snowflake defects) Frank will say "Oh no, not again" referencing the fact that she is a former psychopath.
- After you bring her to the safehouse, she will not always appear in her location as she does in the original.
- It is unknown what ever happened (If tamed) to Snowflake or where she is after the events in Dead Rising 2 and before and during the events of Dead Rising 3 since her new owner, Katey (or Annie) ran away and was in Los Perdidos. Although her father may have put her somewhere where she can stay put until Katey returns or she may have died after the events of the game.
- There is a really rare glitch in the battle that if you kill Ted, proceed to leave, and come back almost at the expiration time, the cutscene for snowflake being tamed will play and she will become a survivor without the need to tame her. (This has only been proven in Off The Record)
