Elrod Bumpkins is a survivor in Dead Rising 2. He is found in the Fortune City Arena with his wife Trixie-Lynn during the mission Barn Burner. He reappears in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record with the same role.
Elrod Bumpkins and his wife Trixie-Lynn Horton are trapped inside a dressing room after they set fire to the door, thinking it would keep the zombies out but not realizing it would keep them in as well. As Chuck Greene approaches, Elrod calls for help. After putting out the fire with a fire extinguisher, Elrod and Trixie-Lynn thank him for rescuing them. Chuck then offers to bring them to the Safe House.
Depending on the ending, Elrod was either rescued by a helicopter sent by the Channel 6 News Station, killed by the military firebombing, or killed by Sullivan to cover up the truth behind the outbreak when the military arrives.
