The ketchup is a weapon in Dead Rising 2, Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, Dead Rising 2: Case West, and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record. It is a condiment consisting of tomatoes and vinegar, commonly used on foods such as french fries, hamburgers, and hot dogs. Like the mayonnaise and mustard, using this weapon on zombies is more suited for entertainment purposes than for practical combat.

Unlike other food items, it cannot be consumed. Instead, the player squirts its contents at a zombie, dealing almost no damage to the target. It lasts two seconds real time when spraying nonstop (eight seconds in Off the Record). Although the ketchup itself cannot be used as food, it may be combined to create a mixed juice in a blender.

In Off the Record, if the player is wearing the Barbecue Chef Skills Pack, the ketchup gains the ability to set zombies on fire.
