Snake in the Grass
Richard has been causing problems in the Safe House by bothering the other women. He asks Frank to fetch him an Erotic Magazine from Hot Excitorama so he can relieve his sexual tension. Once he receives the magazine, he goes to the bathroom and awards Frank $5,000.
If he does not get his magazine in time, he will cause a mutiny and many of the women he constantly bothered will leave the house, registering them to earn a Located status in the notebook.
- Richard accepts mixed juices.
- After Richard is rescued, the amounts of healing items in the safehouse will be removed completely. The PC missions.txt file calls this event "RichardsGluttony".
- However, towards the end of the initial 3-day cycle, two bags of beans will spawn even if Richard was saved.
- Richard can kill a Looter in a single hit with a Sledgehammer.
- Richard is very similar to Ronald Shiner because he is overweight and needs food before he will join Chuck. However, Richard is not as greedy as Ronald as he will not start a mutiny (granted in Off the Record, he does cause a mutiny, however, though not a mutiny over food) and is more polite than Ronald.
- In Dead Rising 2, Richard's notebook picture shows him with light brown skin, brown hair, a purple shirt, and with no hat, looking nothing like his actual ingame model.
- This mis-coloring is corrected in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record.
- Richard shares the same face as Jack Ellis and Carlos Mertiz.
- If Richard is given spoiled food, he will still say it looks delicious and quickly eat it, then vomit. Chuck still has to give him some non-spoiled food to recruit him.
- Richard appears on the icon symbol for the achievement Team Player in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record.
- Richard is very similar to Tallahassee, a character in the 2009 zombie comedy Zombieland, as they both share the same necessity for food, and eventually find what they're looking for. However, Tallahassee has a necessity for a specific kind of food, a Twinkie, while Richard eats whatever he can find.
- This is supported in the PC missions.txt file. Although there is some mention about the mission failing in this line: "cMissionDialogue fail_d323"
