"Release me, I just want to live! Get off me!"
—Roberto pleading for his life (Translated from Portuguese).[src]

Roberto[1] is an original character and an antagonist who first appeared in Shel's Story in Telltale Games' The Walking Dead: 400 Days. He determinately served as the secondary antagonist of Shel's Story.


Location Unknown

Nothing is known about Roberto's life prior to or as the outbreak began. He may have originated from a Portuguese-speaking country such as Portugal or Brazil as he doesn't speak English very well.


"400 Days"

"Day 236"

During Shel's story, Roberto attempts to break into Gil's Pitstop to steal supplies, but is caught by the "watchdog" zombies that were put out to guard the surrounding area. During this time, some of the camp members, Boyd, Clive, and Joyce gather together to examine Roberto.

After Roman blindfolds Roberto's eyes and binds up his wrists, Shel, Becca, and Stephanie approach to see what is going on. Roberto is unable to communicate in English, and murmurs a few words in Portuguese. He is covered in cuts and bruises, though Roman states they were not his doing. Clive and Joyce distrust the stranger and do not believe he should be allowed to still live while Boyd and Stephanie want to have mercy on the man and let him go. Roman allows Shel to make the final decision in the swing vote in whether Roberto lives or dies.

If Shel decides to let Roberto go, (Determinant) Roman will send the man on his way unharmed. Later, Roberto returns to Gil's Pitstop with a number of bandits to raid the group's camp, though Boyd will be one of the casualties as a result of the ambush attack. His fate afterwards is unknown. If Shel views him as a threat, (Determinant) Roberto is shot in the head by Roman.

In-Game Decision

Set Roberto Free (Unknown): If Shel votes to set him free, they will release Roberto. Later, Roberto and his group will return to the Pitstop and kill Boyd. Roberto's fate after the attack is unknown.

Kill Roberto (Dead): If Shel votes to kill him, Roman will shoot him.

No Choice (Dead/Unknown): If Shel doesn't vote anything, Roman makes the choice himself, the result depends on Shel's dialogue with him earlier.

Death (Determinant)

Killed By
  • Walt (Indirectly Caused, Determinant)
  • Bennett (Indirectly Caused, Determinant)
  • Jean (Indirectly Caused)
  • Clive (Caused)
  • Joyce (Caused)
  • Shel (Caused, Determinant)
  • Roman (Off-Screen)

After he is caught by watchdogs, the group take Roberto and Roman asks to vote on which action to take.

As a direct result, their camp will not be raided by bandits and Boyd will be alive and well.
