Kenny dead or alive? (massively merged threads)

Am I the only one who thinks, that Kenny just might survived? I saw both ways, but none of them actually showed his dead. And in the ending reviews, it says, that we "lost him in a group of walkers".

So is he dead?

  • I actually agree with you. I always thought it was deliberately ambiguous because at no point does it actually imply he's dead, that's the player that comes to that conclusion. I felt that the situation where he saved Christa made it more clear than Ben's situation. Looking at it, it could have been as you said a development decision to try and craft him into the second season.
  • Some stories are purposely left open to allow for the future like the ending of Sam and Max left open a happy ending with possibilities for a sequel Kenny's death leaves the possibility of him surviving

    I think Kenny will only survive with the Christa ending because I feel that it is fitting that Ben gets Kenny killed in the end...
  • I think there is still a slight chance that he made it out and survived.
    Still in denial mode, but ya know xD

    If lee survived being cornered in an alley in episode 3, i don't see how our friend/mortal enemy with the awesome stache couldn't have survived. My idea is he shot Ben than out of panic he climbed down a manhole, or went inside a building.
    It's episode 4, after meeting Molly.

    I also thought about that and I think that it's preety plausible that he survived this way.

    (Sorry for my English, if i misspeld sth)

    This can be further supported by seeing Kenny continue to run to the left after shooting Ben.

    As for the Christa version, who would build a room without adding a doorway or window in it?
  • The walking dead wiki seems to be right about every other character's status in the walking dead universe. I don't know, it just seems a little far fetched that they are only wrong about Kenny's status. Even the games ending results section said he was lost to the herd. If it said he was lost in the herd(or crowd) that would mean his whereabouts were undetermined. When something is lost to something it means they were killed. If someone is lost to the sea it means they drowned. Either Telltale are illiterate and Kenny is brought back for season 2 or they worded Kenny's status correctly and he is dead. I am incline to believe the latter. I think Telltale expected the us to understand what it means when they say someone was lost to the herd.

    Well I think, that TTG is keeping the option open. So it could go both ways... That is my best guess.
    But then again, why keep the door open for Kenny, if they are not going to use him...? I'm looking forward to learn, what is happening next:)
    I don't think they did keep the door open for him. They just chose not to show his body. They expect us to do the math and read between the lines given our understanding of the world the characters are living in. Chuck died of screen and Kenny died in a way where we could hear him suffering but where unable to help him.

    According to the walking dead wiki Kenny was eaten alive. The walking dead wiki seems to be right about every other character's status in the walking dead universe.

    What if...Molly saved Kenny at the last second like the ninja she is? :D
    Then it wouldn't say he was lost to the herd at the end it would say he was lost in the crowd, meaning whereabouts unknown.

    How can you be so sure? It's not like we had a view down there. The place he was in, while dark, can't have been completely lockdown without somewhere to go.
    Telltale confirmed at the end of the game that Kenny was lost to the herd which means he was killed by the herd. If it said he was lost in the crowd that would mean his whereabouts remains unknown.

    The walking dead wiki has Kenny's photo outlined in red like all the other characters in the walking dead universe that are definitely dead. The ones that can have more than one outcome based on chosen scenarios are outlined in purple like Lee who will either turn into a zombie or be killed before transforming.

    When I finished the game I understood Telltale's wording, I understood that they meant he was dead. Telltale could have been more clear with the wording and said he was eaten, that would have cleared up any confusion. As it is even if season 2 finished without Kenny featuring in the game people will still be saying that he is alive somewhere and will come back for season 3.
