B.P. Richfield is a triceratops and Earl Sinclair's tyrannical field boss at the WESAYSO Development Corporation. Richfield is known for his fierce temper and tendency to eat those who quarrel with him (and also daughter Wendy Richfield's boyfriends as revealed in "Hungry for Love"). He seldom ventures outside of his trailer, overlooking the job site where Earl and his fellow tree pushers toil.

In the episode "Earl's Big Jackpot," which featured Richfield's mother, it was revealed that the initial "B" in Richfield's name stands for "Bradley." Other known relatives include a nephew (whose head was bitten off by Richfield) and an unseen wife. Richfield recalls the joy he felt when pushing his mother-in-law over a cliff on Hurling Day.

His last name, Richfield, is derived from the Richfield Oil Company, while his first two initials are taken from British Petroleum, another gas company.

A toy of B.P. Richfield was released by Mattel in 1993, and a picture of him can be seen in the "Not the Mama! Card Game".
