Dangerous Fellows or 위험한 그놈들 (wiheomhan keunomdeul) is a mobile otome game that takes place during a zombie apocalypse. A group of survivors save the protagonist from peril and she ends up living with them at their makeshift safe zone, a high school. The player lives with other side characters as well as a mysterious secret that could tear this whole group apart.

While this is happening, the player can romance the five different boy met at the beginning. These five are Lawrence, Harry, Ethan, Eugene, and Zion.

This visual novel provides examples of:

  • Batter Up!: One of Ethan's sprites shows him holding one. Unfortunately for the zombies, he's quite handy with it too.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Lawrence may seem kind at first glance, but he actually kills off survivors just for you, because he is a Yandere.
  • Bittersweet Ending: Some endings have you survive with your romantic interest and nobody else. Ouch.
  • Brainy Brunette: Sue is considered to be the brains of the group.
  • Changing Clothes Is a Free Action: During Critical chapters, the player must change into different outfits so they successfully endure the event.
  • Dating Sim: The protagonist can romance five different boys.
  • Devoured by the Horde: What happens to everyone (including you sometimes) in any ending but the alternate one.
  • Dialogue Tree: The game features a few per chapter, which typically raise Relationship Values with the five main boys.

  • The Dog Was the Mastermind: As it turns out, the killer of Judy, Scarlett, and Jay is Lawrence himself.
  • Establishing Character Moment: In Scarlett's introduction, she's demanding for the player to leave the school. For every other scene she's in, she acts hostile about something.
  • Evil All Along: Guess who knows how to control zombies? Our most esteemed leader, Lawrence.
  • Fiery Redhead: Zion is the cocky athlete of the group and often mouths off to people.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Nobody enjoys Scarlett's constant aggression towards the MC. Even when people start doubting the MC, they still don't accept Scarlett entirely because she's too dramatic.
  • Gentle Giant: Ethan is six feet tall and almost never talks.
  • Hello, [Insert Name Here]: After the boys save you, the player can name their character.
  • Hidden Depths: Who knew Eugene could sing and play the piano?
  • Jerkass: Scarlett is one right from her introduction. Jay and Zion are also both quite unfriendly and unhelpful.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Eugene can be apathetic, whiny, and impolite, but he can be a good person on certain occasions. Especially if you choose his route.
  • The Lancer: Sue was seemingly the only person who found out Lawrence was the killer despite all the clues.
  • Love Interests: Five of them!
  • Militaries Are Useless: Subverted. The military are actually looking for survivors but someone kept hiding the flyers for the sanctuary.
  • Missing Mom: Once the apocalypse started, the MC is separated from her mom and can't find her despite all her efforts.
  • Mistaken for Undead: Harry and MC when raiding a pharmacy for supplies.
  • Nice Guy: The player, Judy, Ethan, Harry, and Lawrence count as this. That is, until you find out Lawrence's secret...
  • Pinky Swear: What you and Zion do during his first night watch on the rooftop. Though the translations calls it a handshake, the picture definitely shows a pinky swear taking place.
  • Plucky Girl: Despite the setting, Judy is quite bubbly and sweet, always caring for others.
  • Pretty Boy: None of the romance candidates are particularly muscular, so they can come across as this. Especially Eugene.
  • The Quiet One: Ethan is this and so is Sue to a lesser extent.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: The zombie sprites have these.
  • Relationship Values: The player can check their Relationship Values with the five main boys whenever they're not in a chapter. These relationships can be raised by either gifting items you find, choosing the right dialogue options, or choosing to hang out with them.
  • Shrinking Violet: Hailey is a downplayed version of this.
  • Teenage Wasteland: Everyone living at the school is 18 except for Eugene who is 17.
  • Tsundere: Eugene can come off as one.
  • Violence Is Disturbing
  • Virtual Paper Doll: The player can change between three different outfits or wear their basic default clothes.
  • Wasteland Elder: Lawrence is this for the teenagers.
  • Yandere: He killed more than ten people just for you. If that isn't the most romantic thing someone could do, then what is?
    Lawrence: People were getting in our way. So I had to take care of that...I did this for you.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Harry has white hair, oddly enough. Nobody ever comments on it.
  • Zombie Apocalypse: The game takes place in one.
