The characters of Breaking Bad are able to dominate the world of drugs, creating and selling as much meth as they can get their hands on. However, when it comes to dealing with zombies, it is a totally different ball game. The need for intelligence, teamwork, ruthlessness, and ultimately, the ability to survive is key to surviving a zombie apocalypse.
Some of the characters from Breaking Bad would likely struggle to find themselves surviving for long within a zombie apocalypse, whereas others would likely thrive and begin channeling their inner Rick Grimes. But would Walter White be the one who knocks out zombies, or would Skyler manage to use her intelligence to stay one step ahead of the game to outlast them all?
Out of everybody in Breaking Bad, the last person that fans would want to be stuck with is Marie Schrader, as she’s not likely to survive long. Marie isn’t overly confident and is someone who would probably scare easily in this type of situation.
Marie often thinks of herself above others, and her life is focused on materialistic objects, which is something that wouldn’t be around in a zombie apocalypse. Marie’s life of luxuries would be taken away from her, and that’s something that would cause her problems in terms of surviving.
Saul Goodman might have an answer to most situations, and he is someone who is happy to break any laws needed to help his clients, but that skill wouldn’t serve him well in a zombie apocalypse. All rules are thrown out during that situation, and while Saul might have a few friends who could help him, on his own he is a coward.
Saul doesn’t stand up for himself within Breaking Bad, often showing that he’s scared of people, and that isn’t the type of trait that stands people in good stead when it comes to a zombie apocalypse.
When it comes to brute strength and aggression, Tuco Salamanca is right at the top of the pile in terms of characters within Breaking Bad. He’s someone who isn’t to be crossed or messed with, and he would no doubt be able to destroy a large number of zombies.
However, that doesn’t mean that he would be able to survive the apocalypse. The problem for Tuco is his inability to hold in his anger, with the rage likely getting the best of him, which would lead Tuco to make a decision that would cost him his life.
Skyler White might not be someone who spends her time fighting or having contact with drug kingpins, but she is fearless, intelligent, and cunning. Skylar is able to analyze situations and see any potential flaws to expose, and that’s a useful skill in a zombie apocalypse.
She might not be the one going around killing them (although if pushed she likely would be capable), but Skyler could come up with solutions to protect her family and try to survive as long as possible.
Though Jesse Pinkman isn’t one of the smartest people on Breaking Bad, he is someone who has a knack for being able to survive any situation, no matter what. Whether he’s taking a beating from DEA agents or other criminals, Jesse always manages to hang in there.
It’s a skill of his, even if he doesn’t realize that he has it and that would work out for him in terms of a zombie apocalypse. While he may not make it till the end due to the rash decisions he often makes, he wouldn’t be the first to go.
Walter White is a smart man, and that would serve him well in a zombie apocalypse. He is able to understand exactly what needs to be done and when in order to survive and thrive, and even when he’s thrown out of his depth by entering the criminal underworld, Walt showcases his ability to outthink people to come out on top.
While he might get weighed down by his family, having to try and think to help three others stay alive, he is someone who is able to stare down a challenge and come out on top. He might end up in some scary situations, but Walt never backs down and that would work well for him in this world.
Something that is crucial within a zombie apocalypse is intelligence, and when it comes to characters within Breaking Bad, Gus Fring is arguably the smartest. He’s someone who knows how to analyze a situation and make the best situations to suit him.
Gus is the type of person who would be able to manipulate others to help him out, not needing to get his hands dirty for the majority of the situation. However, Gus is also able to be ruthless when needed, and if any zombies did get in his way, Gus would have no issue in dealing with them.
Jack Welker is the man in charge of the white supremacist group on Breaking Bad, and while he’s one of the least likable characters within the show, that doesn’t mean he wouldn’t survive a zombie apocalypse. Jack is someone who loves fighting and shooting and has no problem trying to kill anybody in his way.
While Jack likely wouldn’t be any use in a situation where he needs to sneak around or use stealth, he would still do well within a zombie apocalypse. His ability to use guns and fire through everybody in his way would see him slaughter plenty of zombies to survive, as long as zombies could be destroyed in that way, that is.
Hank Schrader might be a little bit of a loudmouth at times and somebody who likes to show off, but he is also someone who would be great in a zombie apocalypse. His career with the DEA is something that has provided plenty of skills that would work effectively in this situation.
Hank spends his entire life in dangerous situations, dealing with criminals, whether it’s shootouts or fights, and that would serve him well in this environment. While he would likely try to save as many people as possible, Hank would also know when to give up on a lost cause and that would allow him to do well against zombies.
Out of every character from Breaking Bad, there is nobody that would be more useful than Mike Ehrmantraut. He’s someone who has a great set of skills, which he showcases throughout the series, whether it’s breaking into a property, orchestrating a series of murders, or putting people down himself.
He isn’t overly emotional either, which is something that is crucial within a zombie apocalypse. He won’t get wrapped up in mind games or anything with other humans, and would likely keep to himself, analyzing everything and knowing exactly the right steps to take in order to survive.
