Drops on death


  • Mister Buckingham will respawn eventually if killed, unlike any other killable named non-player character.
  • Mister Buckingham's voice and personality seem to have been modeled after Basil Fawlty, the main character and hotel owner of the sitcom's namesake, "Fawlty Towers"
  • Mister Buckingham has a glitch in his system, if you buy your hotel room from him instead of Mrs. Weatherly, the room is yours forever. If you buy from Mrs. Weatherly, you only get the room for the night.


Mister Buckingham appears only in Fallout 3.


  • It is possible for the player to start a fight in Rivet City, leave, and then return later to find the city peaceful once again. If Mister Buckingham is killed with an energy weapon in a fight, when the player returns there will be an ash pile on the ground. After Mister Buckingham respawns, the ash pile will remain, and it is possible to interact with him via the ash pile. One simply needs to search the ash pile to initiate dialogue with Mister Buckingham. The players viewpoint will immediately shift to look at the living Mister Buckingham.
  • Be careful not to buy the hotel room from both Mister Buckingham and Vera, as you will be charged the full amount on each transaction, effectively making you pay double for the room.
  • PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Mister Buckingham and Private Jones have a tendency to randomly turn hostile towards the player unprovoked, even when the rest of Rivet City is peaceful. The other citizens will also turn hostile during the fight, even if the player doesn't fight back when being attacked.
