Restaurant Man[]

Main article: Restaurant Man

Ronald is found in a restaurant in Paradise Plaza. He has barricaded the front entrance and is lamenting the lack of food inside. When Frank West comes across him, Ronald begs him for some food and accuses Frank of keeping all of it for himself.

After Frank delivers some food, Ronald will gobble it down, belching and laughing, providing a photo op. Then he will agree to follow Frank to the Security Room under the impression that there is more food stocked there.

Ronald's Appetite[]

Main article: Ronald's Appetite

After being rescued, Ronald will wait in the room with the blue door. He soon complains about the lack of food and rallies up the other survivors in the same room to head out and look for more. Frank says there should have been enough to cover everyone's needs, to which Ronald responds that he needs more food than everybody else. He is satisfied when Frank gives him some kind of food.

If Frank does not stop Ronald's mutiny or leaves the security Room, Ronald will leave the Security Room along with the other survivors in the same room. They will no longer count towards the number of rescued survivors and will never be seen again.
