Burt Thompson is a survivor appearing in Dead Rising and Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop. He is found barricaded in a Weber's Garments clothing store in Al Fresca Plaza during the scoop Barricade Pair.

Barricade PairEdit

In Barricade Pair, Burt is found with his friend Aaron Swoop inside a barricaded store in Al Fresca Plaza. When Frank breaks down their barricade to enter the store, Burt will attack him with a baseball bat under the impression that Frank is a psychopath. After Frank hits him back a few times, he surrenders. Frank then explains that he is here to bring them back to the Security Room.

Rescue Burt Aaron as soon as possible because Al Fresca Plaza is full of zombies. Frank has three hours before it becomes dark, making the zombies become more aggressive. Frank will have only two hours to get Burt through Leisure Park before the Convicts appear.

Ronald's AppetiteEdit

After being rescued, he will wait in the room with the blue door. In Ronald's Appetite, when Ronald Shiner complains about the lack of food, he rallies up the other survivors in the same room, including Burt, to head out and look for food. If Frank does not stop Ronald's mutiny, Burt will leave the Security Room along with the other survivors in the same room. They will no longer count towards the number of rescued survivors.


Depending on the ending, Burt was either rescued by Ed DeLuca, taken into custody by the Special Forces and eventually released, or killed by Carlito Keyes' bombs.

Infinity ModeEdit

In Infinity Mode, Burt appears at the Heliport from 5:07:00 to 5:19:00, he is hostile, armed with a Battle Axe and when killed, Frank finds Coffee Creamer on his corpse.
