Theodore Lagerfeld Jr., also known as Teddy is one of the bosses or psychopaths featured in the 2013 video game Dead Rising 3. He is also an optional boss in the main mode, who can be found for the first time in Chapter 5 in Sunset Hills in the Mayor's House in the side quest Remotely Helpful. He is a very lazy son of the mayor of Los Perdidos who has locked himself in his villa completely and has no idea about the zombie outbreak. When Nick has the opportunity to open an armory full of weapons and ammunition, it turns out that it is locked, and who Teddy has the key to it, prefers to spend his time playing video games, eating, sleeping and is completely oblivious about the fact that other people are dying because they cannot defend themselves. Theodore is also one of the psychopaths who carry one of the Seven Deadly Sins - Theodore's sin is Sloth.
He was voiced by Paul Tei.
Prior to encountering the Lagerfield mansion, Nick encounters a police officer requesting his assistance in gathering weapons. The officer relates that the armoury containing many weapons that could be used to help survivors. However, the key to the armoury has been stolen by the cowardly son of the mayor who's holed up in his mansion. Nick complies with the officer's requests for weapons, to which the officer tells Nick to punish the coward for stealing the key should he ever find him.
Later on, Nick enters the Lagerfield mansion and comes across Theodore "Teddy" Lagerfield, Jr. broadcasted on a TV screen in the foyer. Theodore admonishes Nick for being late, noting that the help hasn't gotten back to him for several days now. Nick informs him of the zombie outbreak outside, but Teddy is apathetic to it unless Nick gets him some more food. Nick demands that he relinquish the armoury key so he can get access to the weapons and save lives. Being an incredibly lazy man, Teddy refuses and decides to unleash a horde of robotic mini-helicopter drones to gun down and fire-bomb Nick for giving him a headache. Nick is forced to fight for his life as Teddy taunts him.
Throughout the mansion, Nick dodges and destroys the various drones sent after him while Teddy complains over the mansion's PA system about how Nick is destroying his stuff. After Nick finds the electronically-locked door Teddy is hiding behind, he seeks out and destroys control panels scattered throughout the house that keep the door sealed. Breaking into Teddy's control room in the basement, the lazy Psychopath panics and immediately dies from a heart attack after begging Nick not to kill him. In a somewhat darkly comedic fashion, Teddy farts twice before dying. Nevertheless, Nick retrieves the armoury key.
Defeating Teddy unlocks the Slothful achievement and gives Nick the key to the armory.
- Due to Theodore's laziness, he has remained completely oblivious to the outbreak.
- Its unknown if Theodore actually made the helicopters but its most likely that the helicopters were made prior to the outbreak as a security system.
