Munroe "Mad Dog" Moore is a recurring character on The CW's Riverdale. He is portrayed by Eli Goree.

He was once a prison inmate alongside Archie at Leopold and Loeb Juvenile Detention Center, both of whom, along with many others, were entangled in Warden Norton's illegal fight club. Munroe was Norton's most cherished fighter, that was until Archie arrived and took his place. After he suddenly disappeared following a riot in the yard, Mad Dog returned to help Archie escape.

After Munroe helped Archie escape, he was taken back to Leopold and Loeb, where he remained for several more months, until calling Archie to tell him that the center is closing and they were all being relocated to Hiram Lodge's new prison on the Southside. Fortunately, with the help of Veronica, Archie manages to get Munroe and the other inmates pardoned after blackmailing the Governor. And so, Munroe returned to Riverdale, where he found his grandmother and little brother and later agreed to fight for Elio Grande in exchange for payment and housing.

Apparently, a wing of the prison will be designated for juveniles. They’re all being transferred there, and the L&L guards who made them fight, they’re all going to work at Hiram’s prison too, where they can restart the fight club. Even more suspicious, Mad Dog’s parole hearing was suddenly canceled. As well as Baby Teeth's and Thumper's. Mad Dog tried to call his family, but no one is answering.

Randy Ronson weighs in at 159 lbs while Archie weighs in at 154 lbs.

Mad Dog gives Archie a heads up that Randy is juicing, but not with steroids. Some kind of new powder that he saw Elio give to Ronson. It made him crazy strong. Mad Dog looked into Randy’s eyes and all he saw was rage. Mad Dog fears that Randy may kill Archie in the ring, which is why he has brought Archie drugs to level the playing field. However, Archie is opposed to taking drugs. Mad Dog leaves the drugs with Archie just in case he changes his mind.[3]

As he proceeds to take Ms. Ronson to claim the body, Archie and Mad Dog inform Dr. Patel that Randy was on drugs and that Elio was his supplier, though Elio claims to have had no knowledge of any substance abuse, which Archie, Veronica, and Mad Dog know to be untrue. Mad Dog states that Randy’s blood is all over Elio’s hands, though Elio retorts that it literally all over Archie's.

Mad Dog calls Archie to ask about the drugs he gave him because the police just raided Elio’s gym with a warrant, and they’re likely to do the same with El Royale. After Archie says they're in his locker, he and Mad Dog meet up at the gym to recover the drugs and dispose of them. However, before they can get the chance to do so, the police raid the gym, catching Archie and Mad Dog with the drugs in hand. And so, the two of them are arrested on site.

It’ll be a nearly impossible task to prove that it was in fact Elio who gave Ronson the drugs and that he’s setting Archie up. However, Veronica has a plan, which starts with a drug test for both Archie and Mad Dog. Afterward, Veronica holdS a press conference outside of Pop’s to announce that Archie and Mad Dog’s drug tests have come back negative. Randy’s sisters, Ms. Ronson, led by Elio, interrupts the press conference and accuses Archie of murdering Randy.

Mad Dog tells Veronica to keep him in mind should she ever decide that she wants another boxer under her roster. Fangs comes running from the back soak and wet. He tells them about a busted pipe, which he shut off, but it needs fixing. Archie volunteers to fix it, but Veronica would rather he call a professional plumber.

They invited Alice and the media to broadcast the meeting the surrounding businesses. Archie wants to set the record straight. Despite a few bogus complaints that were made, the community center isn’t going anywhere. In fact, they’re extending their hours to 11 PM and will even be open on Sundays. Archie asks that instead of working against them, that the neighbors help out by sponsoring a baseball team or donating time. Munroe and Archie also plan to start a Big Brothers and Big Sisters program. The Riverdale Bulldogs and Vixens have already volunteered. Archie invites anyone to try and shut them down. However, they will lose.

Archie informs Munroe of his plan to deep fry a turkey, which his dad has done every year. FP interrupts with some alarming news. He’s under orders by the mayor to shut Archie down for Thanksgiving. Hiram's doing it to punish Veronica, to get her to spend the holiday with him. FP tried to fight him on the matter, but Hiram insisted. However, if he was in Archie’s place, he’d go through with his plans for Thanksgiving dinner for the community, which is exactly what Archie does.

Munroe and Archie host a Thanksgiving dinner at the community center as planned. As Munroe and Malcolm welcome guests, Archie tells Veronica of his plan to keep the center open over night so that no one is forced to go out in the storm.

He sits it down on the table and reaches for the gun, but is unsuccessful. Archie and Munroe intervene, explaining that he’s just a kid. Fagan punches Archie in the face, certain that he’s the one who put Dodger in the hospital. Darla agrees with him. She thinks Archie beat Dodger into a coma and then called the ambulance so that no one would suspect him. She then points the gun at Archie and forces him to his knees.

Archie, Munroe, and Veronica check out the explosion

Darla demands that Archie admit to beating up Dodger. Archie will admit to it only if Darla agrees to let everyone else goes when he does.

Just as she is about to shoot Archie, the deep fryer explodes, causing a distraction long enough for Archie to disarm Darla. As Archie takes out her sons, Munroe orders the kids into the office. Veronica assists in the take down by pinning Bill Dickenson to the table by stabbing his hand with a carving fork. Mary grabs the gun, bringing the altercation to a head. She gives Darla, Bill, and Fagan five seconds to leave the center or the else. The three of them scurry as she starts counting down. As they leave, Eddie and Toby lock the door behind them. Archie, Mary, Veronica, and Munroe then investigate the cause of the explosion.

He has some meds from the VA. They’re not going to heal Munroe’s injuries, but they’ll numb him long enough for the game. Archie turns down the offer, but Munroe is more willing to take the chance. Munroe accepts the pills from Frank and arrives in the locker room for the big game. Munroe refuses to sit the game out as a Notre Dame recruiter came all the way to Riverdale just to see him play. That’ll change Munroe’s family’s life. Archie worries that he’ll get hurt and never play again. Munroe takes the risk nonetheless.

Mad Dog later returned to help Archie escape, and in return, Archie blackmailed the Governor to get Mad Dog pardoned from Leopold and Loeb.
