Turkey is a seasonal Rare Character that can only be recruited around Thanksgiving.

The player can either recruit them or choose to eat them for 1 Morale (whole party) and 8 Food.

If Turkey's morale dips too low, their Despair Event involves them pecking another survivor and the team either kicking the person they pecked or finally eating the Turkey and gaining the same benefits as mentioned above.

Encounter Text

Upon Encounter

It's that time of the year! A turkey appears!

It's pretty big so it might actually be a guy in a turkey suit.

No one can say for sure.

Upon Recruiting

Big mistake! Now the turkey thinks [Name] is its mother!

It starts following [him/her] around.


Turkey survived against all odds. Happy Thanksgiving!


  •  Turkey's stats are always randomised.
  •  Turkey can only be recruited when playing the game on a national holiday. There is no other way to recruit him, much like with Santa, The Beaver, and Uncle Sam.
