Ultimate Zombie Team

You are about to be thrown from our universe into the world of The Walking Dead. Tough break, kid. BUT, you get to chose five characters from all of fictiondom to bring with you! So that's nice. Who do you choose, why, and how might they also get in your way?

(Sorry if this is redundant. I thought a thread like this would exist by now but I wasn't able to find one.)

  • Not to be a anime nerd, but seriously, Ajimu Najimi would be the only person I'd need in my zombie apocalypse team. In fact, she'd be able to make the zombie apocalypse not exist, but probably wouldn't because this makes the world a little interesting.

    Reminds me of this picture I found once:

    Just for fun I might add a few characters from the Walking Dead video game just to make the character dynamics interesting, like Lilly, Kenny, Lee, and Carley, as I know how they would act and respond in a zombie apocalypse. Others I see right now may be unreliable.

    As for choosing those in The Walking Dead comic, well I'd be screwed, as everyone, and I mean everyone, dies there. Seriously, the game looks like a walk in the park in comparison.

    So in the end, I suppose my team would be, Ajimu, Lee, Kenny, Lilly, and Carly. That's assuming myself doesn't count as part of the team. (Even though I technically am)

  • You make number six. Five outside yourself. And I definitely see your logic!

  • 1. Cesar-Rise of the Planet of the Apes
    Pro: This great ape made my list because he has proved himself a damn good leader. He's capable of making difficult decisions while maintaining his, for lack of a better term, humanity. But above all else, he's a strategist who knows how to make the most of his group's strengths. He took down the previous alpha male, then got him back on his feet, then turned him into a devoted lieutenant. People in this universe could use some discipline (I'm looking at you, Kenny).
    Con: If I run into a group of attractive, sex starved women I'll have to keep this animal's stinking paws off them, the damn dirty ape....

    2. Nancy Botwin-Weeds
    Pro: Agrestic's Baroness of Bud is one scrappy woman. A life of illegal drug dealing has given her a great history of dealing with questionable and hard to read people in highly dramatic situations. Any jaggoff can shoot a walker but Nancy has an arsenal of skills to deal with the real threat, fellow people, including a sexuality that most female characters in the game possess but none use except arguably Molly.
    Con: "...that crazy fuck on the radio's messing with us! If now aint the time for a blunt..." I don't want to have this conversation a hundred times.

    3. Professor Max Arturo-Sliders
    Pro: One of the most genius minds in sci-fi, a life of sliding in and out of vastly alternate worlds has made Arturo a master at thinking on the fly. Plus, he's saved multiple worlds by using his brain to do some tricky stuff like create penicillin and reinvent the atom bomb. Plus, if he brought the sliding machine so we could just leave that world, I wouldn't complain.
    Con: He calls everyone by their last name. That's gonna get old quick.

    4. Bruce Wayne-Batman
    Pro: Bruce Wayne is the goddammned (spoilers) BATMAN (end spoilers). Who couldn't use a guy who can whip all kinds of ass, glide from rooftop to rooftop, and is the world's greatest detective? Bruce would have had Ben's ass figured out way before the bandits came to cause trouble. But what Bruce really brings to the table is an infallible moral compass. His entire MO is keeping people decent in indecent times. You think making a hard choice when Clem is watching is hard, wait until Batman is watching while you dangle a college kid over a ledge. Bruce will remember that....
    Con: I don't have time for Batman to capture a guy like The Governor, put him in an asylum, wait for him to escape, and do it again and again until the dude has to resort to giant Queen Elizabeth battle robots to outdo his last attempt.

    5. Sly Cooper-Sly Cooper franchise
    Pro: This guy is one cunning, devious, thevieus raccoonus. Not only is he a master thief from a long line of great thieves with the power to plan elaborate heists when dealing with issues like Crawford, but he can also walk on thin rails and wires. Combined with Batman's rooftop prowess, the issue of locked doors is solved forever.
    Con: We've got to stop and mourn for every dead raccoon in the street while walkers roam ever closer.

    So liking your number 2 selection. But no Batman...Lee is Batman...except that he is clumsy...way ALOT!!! I'm also thinking maybe conker from N64's conker's bad fur day would be an incredible asset to the group, especially cuz if he gets hurt chocolate randomly springs up around him, very helpful indeed:p

    You forgot Mr Olympia...And the terminator!!

  • 1. Jack Bauer
    2. Batman
    3. Yoda
    4. MacGyver
    5. Michonne

  • 1. Spiderman. He can fling a web that sticks the walkers in place and we can kill them easily. Or run away if need be. He's used to fighting criminals, so he'd be good against people like the bandits or other creeps. He can swing around and scout things out too.
    2. Dexter Morgan from Dexter. He's smart and resourceful. His medical knowledge would be useful if you had an injury. Already an accomplished serial killer, so he knows how to sneak around quietly and he is in good physical shape for taking on a bunch of walkers at once. Knows anatomy, so he would understand right where to hit them to destroy the brain effectively. Basically a sociopath, so he would take out any living people that are a threat with no hesitation.
    3. Hagrid from the Harry Potter series. Tough part - giant hide may make him impervious to bites, and makes him very tough when it comes to attacks from humans. Capable of tossing grown men like rag dolls. A very loyal friend. Capable of a little bit of magic in a real pinch!
    4. Bob Lee Swagger from Shooter. A bad assed Marine sniper! Clever, tough, and resourceful. Also a loyal friend.
    5. Ripley from the Alien franchise. She's smart, tough, and would have your back if you had hers. Can use heavy machinery if needed.

  • i would just choose any of the more powerful DC and Marvel heroes, superman on his own would keep me safe and kill/capture every zombie on the planet in short time

  • So assuming we're allowed six members...

    Optimus Prime
    Rainbow Dash
    Arcanine
    Shadow The Hedgehog
    Jesus Christ
    Me

    Shit just got serious!

  • yeah seeing as we are allowed 6 i'll take these:

    Superman, Dave Lister, Arnold Rimmer, Kryten, Cat, Holly (with Mobile TV)
