- "You're going out there? Are you nuts?"
- — Wayne
Wayne is a survivor featured in Dead Island. He is first seen after the Hero awakens in the Pool House. He's initially standing by the door, trying to convince Jeannine that John Sinamoi can't be saved. However, the Hero approaches the door, and Wayne asks if they plan on going outside. Once the Hero has a weapon, Wayne opens the door.
(It should be noted that the miscellaneous section of the shops can change).
- When the Hero comes into the room where Wayne is in, Wayne will say "I heard this scourge came from outer space". Then when leaving the room Wayne will say "Came down on a goddamn meteor". This could be a reference to Call of Duty: Nazi Zombies, where the zombies were made from an element from meteors.
- The "outer space" idea may also refer to the movie Night Of the Living Dead (1968), where a probe that was returning from Venus was purposely destroyed by NASA (presumably in our upper atmosphere) before it could land back on Earth. The probe had contained a mysteriously high level of radiation and during a TV news broadcast reporters questioned military and scientific experts if this was responsible for triggering the "mutations" and "wholesale murders" on Earth.
