Sid Burn is a fictional character in the vehicle action series Vigilante 8.


Sid Burn is an Australian-born terrorist who does what he does for one thing: money. His early life before the events of V8 are not clear, although it was revealed that he was in a relationship with a weapon smuggler named Nina Loco at some point. When OMAR wanted him to destroy their rivals' oil fields, he created the Coyote auto gang to help him in his work. His actions earned him the attention of the FBI and Convoy's Vigilantes.


Sid Burn left stranded with no gas in his ending in Vigilante 8.

In his V8 ending, Sid emerges victorious in the Auto Wars and is paid a huge sum of money. Unfortunately, his car had no gas, and he spots a sign saying there's no gas station for the next 100 miles, forcing him to push his vehicle for the rest of the drive.

In his V8: Arcade ending, Sid Burn easily defeats Chassey Blue and drives off in victory. Unfortunately for Sid, he never noticed Chassey placing an incendiary device on his vehicle, leaving his fate unknown.
