Ron Grady was a student and was initially Jesse Walsh's rival but the two grew close while sharing punishment under Schneider. He was the second victim in the Freddy's Revenge killing spree. He is portrayed by the actor Robert Rusler.
Jesse confided his fears concerning Freddy to Ron and asked him to watch over him while he slept to make sure Freddy did not gain control. However, Ron fell asleep and Freddy seized control and possessed Jesse again before murdering Ron. His soul was absorbed by Freddy and was released in the 4th movie when Alice Johnson beat Freddy.
