Humanity has proven itself to be quite adept at making mistakes, hell it's the only thing we truly excel at...
~ Brock Mason

Brock Mason is the main antagonist of the Dead Rising series. He is the main antagonist and final boss of the 2006 videogame Dead Rising, as well as a posthumous antagonist in the comic book miniseries Dead Rising: Road to Fortune.

He is the leader of a military Special Forces group sent to eliminate the zombies and any survivors to cover up the incident. The reason for this was because he lead the massacre in Santa Cabeza that caused Carlito and Isabela Keyes to go insane and try to kill the people in Willamette and the United States.

He was voiced by Gregg Berger.


Dead Rising

He attacks using a tank at first before he decides to talk to Frank, in which he reveals he is one of the main reasons the outbreak started in the first place.

After this, the real final battle is waged on top of the tank, basic hand-to-hand combat made more difficult by the fact that a massive horde of zombies is surrounding the tank from all sides, making falling off a rather unpleasant experience. In the end, Mason is defeated and falls off the tank into the horde of zombies and is devoured, all with a faint smile.

Dead Rising: Road to Fortune

When Frank West and Rebecca Chang tried to enter into Las Vegas, they are confronted by Captain John Kilduff, who also tells Frank that he was a good friend of Brock who came up through SPECFOR together, claiming he was a good man and soldier and was proud to serve with. Frank remarks that Brock was weak and 'Punched like a little girl'. Leaving, Kilduff shouts 'SOMEDAY WEST...SOMEDAY' to Frank, swearing to get revenge for Brock.



He is a middle-aged man in his late 30's and wears a well-geared military outfit with body armor. He also seems to appear to be bald, no eyebrows, and has several scars on his face.


He is a cynical, emotionless human being, showing no regard with obvious contempt for humanity along with anyone else. No emotion on the loss of his fellow soldiers, the genocide at Willamette, or the destruction of Santa Cabeza. He sees the cleanup as nothing but a mission that needs to be accomplished no matter the cost.


Mason is shown to be skilled at hand-to-hand combatant and good marksman possibly through his military training. He also seems to be good at leadership, seen giving orders to the soldiers. He is also skilled at driving tank.





  • Even though Mason's actions caused the plot, Carlito is the one driving the plot, making this a Big Bad Ensemble. However, Mason is the Greater Scope Villain for the entire series because his role in the Santa Cabeza outbreak indirectly led up to the outbreaks in all the games.
  • He shares some similarities with Raymond Sullivan from Dead Rising 2. They both are well trained hand-to-hand fighters, fight on a small platform surrounded by zombies and will ruthlessly carry out their mission. Also, both have zero remorse for their actions, though both of them are trying to contain zombie outbreaks.
  • He also shares some similarities with Sgt. Dwight Boykin, being that they both are with the military and are both psychopaths. However, Mason couldn't care less for the men under his command while Boykin appears to have a strong admiration for each soldier, making them opposites in personality.
  • Mason is mentioned in Dead Rising: Road to Fortune by John Kilduff, who states to be very good friend to Mason. It is hinting that John is possibly oblivious like Mason or does not seem to care about Mason's genocidal actions.
  • Isabela Keyes in Dead Rising 3 has portrayed similarities of him, given how both of them have scars, are able to sacrifice anyone for their goals and developed a disregard for humanity.
  • However Brock has no fear to loose his life or meet repercussions, while Isabela would rather run away than pay for her crimes.
