Burnard finds almost everything hilarious and is very notorious for his habit of constantly laughing all the time 24/7, even through fear or sadness, a trait which his siblings and some other Mixels find a bit (sometimes really) annoying. Ironically, the only way to make him stop laughing is to tell a joke because he does not exactly understand them. He is also very naughty and has a tendency to ignore warnings and prank other Mixels just for his own fun, which can mostly lead to danger for those around him.
Burnard has a body with a head and two arms with dark red hands tapering close to the body on two long arms. He has a mouth, and two eyes connecting to the top of the jaw, with three teeth on the bottom and two longer teeth on both sides of the top. On the top of his eyes is a unibrow. He has two fiery yellow cat-like ears with horns pointing up on both sides and red highlights underneath. He has dark red feet with a reddish bottom part with one fiery yellow toe on each.
When he laughs, this unfortunately causes Burnard to spew flames from his mouth. He can also blow fire from his ears and make a lasso out of smoke.
Little is known about Burnard's past. However, at one point in time, he developed a broad sense of humor.
During a camping trip with his brothers, he neglected to pack anything (save for an Campcube), much to the annoyance of Flamzer. After accidentally setting a Forest Freeze, he Mixed with Meltus to help stop it from spreading and to save Flamzer, though they made a few Murps at first. He and his brothers were eventually abducted by the Orbitons' Ship-Space and taken to Mixel Moon. Not taking kindly to the invasion, the Infernites got into a Max battle with the Orbitons, but they later found each other friendly. During a tour of Orbitopia, he showed Niksput his smoke ring trick, impressing the Orbiton leader. This later came in handy when Burnard and Niksput Mixed to save the Orbitopia dome from breaking, though they ended up being the ones to accidentally break it in the end.
At a picnic, two Nixels stole their food, forcing him to team up with Rokit to retrieve it. When the dark side of the moon hit Orbitopia, he ended up Mixing with Nurp-Naut to defend themselves from the Glowkies, though they later turned out friendly.
Despite warnings from Globert during a cave rave, he found it too irresistible to pull the Gravity Plug. He eventually resorted to using a resistant Rokit to Mix and pull the plug anyways, sucking all the gravity out.
He, along with his brothers, eventually grew homesick and wished to return. ("Mixel Moon Madness")
Burnard had also attended a special convention with his Infernite brothers and alien tribes the Orbitons and Glowkies. At it, they competed in quite a few events. ("Mixels Convention Craze")
Burnard, at some point, received a Mixamajig Key and was one of almost all of the Mixels who searched and fought for the Mixamajig, and then captured by King Nixel. He Maxed with his branch of the Infernites in order to defeat him, and Mixopolis was revealed by the Weldos soon after. ("A Quest for the Lost Mixamajig")

Have a giggle with fire-belching fool Burnard, 1 of 3 fun-loving members of the Infernites tribe featured in LEGO® Mixels™ Series 4 sets.
- He was one of the first Series 4 Mixels revealed, and was also the first Infernite from the 2015 wave to be revealed.
- Burnard has the most Mixes among the Series 4 Mixels. As well as that, he has Mixed the most times in one episode than any other Mixel.
- He has a dark red part under his eyes on his LEGO model, but in the cartoon, it is normal red.
- He knows how to play the guitar.
- In the cartoon, he has one orange square on each foot, but on his LEGO model, there are two on each foot.
- His LEGO instructions have a mistake on his piece count page: It says he contains one transparent orange cheese slope piece, even though he actually contains six.
- He appears as a rideable creature in LEGO Worlds. He can be found inside of caves and costs 10,000 studs.
- At the Mixopolis General Hospital, he appears on an anatomy chart.
- Hotstuff is very similar to him in design, voice, and abilities, possibly from Burnard being used in the background design of the Lava Lounge.
Behind the Scenes
In Burnard's original static image, he has no tongue and red legs. The color of the inside of his mouth was changed to grey. His eyes were originally going to be wider and larger. The red legs were not seen in the packaging and instructions.
Name and basis
Burnard's name is a pun on the word "burn" and the name "Bernard".
He may be based on a chameleon, as he has peripheral vision in defined eye sockets and horned extensions on his head.
Burnard was first revealed as a character in the Mixels franchise on July 24, 2014 at San Diego Comic-Con International. Both his LEGO set and cartoon artwork were shown. Alongside him were Nurp-Naut of the Orbitons and Globert of the Glowkies.
