 Rich Donovan is a character in The Walking Dead: Splatterpunk. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Donovan, and the brother of Darla Donovan.


Almost nothing is known about Rich's life before the apocalypse. He had a mother, a father, and a sister, Darla. It is known that his mother was his and Carl's math teacher at an unnamed school in King County, Georgia. He and Carl were friends and went to school together. He would occasionally have Carl and his parents over for barbeques and parties at their house with their other neighbors.


After the apocalypse, Rich's mother ended up at Harrison Memorial Hospital as a patient (presumably for a zombie bite), and ended up dying, reanimating as a zombie, and being put down by the military. It is assumed that Rich and his sister stayed inside their home and waited for their mother and father to return, (their father wasn't seen at their home). At one point, Rich and Darla died, presumably killed by walkers, as their home was filled with walkers. Tina encounters the zombified Donovan children when she runs away from the safehouse. A zombified Rich is then shot in the head by Bebe , his body left to rot.

Killed VictimsEdit

This is a list of victims that Rich has killed:

  • Possibly numerous counts of zombies. (Alive)
  • Possibly numerous counts of unnamed people. (While Zombified)


Killed ByEdit

  • Zombies (Presumably) (Alive)

At some point after the outbreak began, Rich died and reanimated.

  • Bebe (Zombified)

After Rich reanimated as a zombie, he tried to kill Tina, along with his zombified sister and other walkers. Because of this, Bebe shoots him in the head, killing him completely.


  • Rich is one of several characters to first appear in the series as a walker.
    • Although Rich is mentioned in the story before he first appears, he never appears as alive.
