With the zombie craze pretty much hitting its peak, it can sometime be hard not to think about what the world would be like if some sort of apocalypse actually happened and how one might survive. One of the most important things about survival in a zombie-infested world is knowing who to surround yourself with. Whether you’re trying to survive in a gang-ruled desert wasteland or a post-apocalyptic world filled with zombies and man-hunting machines, here are eight extreme survivalists form science fiction you’d be lucky to have by your side.
8. Daryl Dixon – The Walking Dead
Even though everyone still alive on The Walking Dead could be deemed a pretty savvy survivalist, Daryl Dixon is still a cut above them because he had already developed the skills before the zombies rose. He can track, hunt with a crossbow, hold his own in fight, and, perhaps most important in a zombie apocalypse, he has the stomach to kill someone who needs to be killed.
