She is playable in the Scavenge part of the game.
Dolores is one half of the playable characters in the scavenging section of the game. If Dolores fails to reach the fallout shelter in time, she will dive to the floor, and the player will be given the "The End" screen. This happens even if all other family members got into the shelter on time.
Dolores is slim-built with thick ginger hair (the same as Timmy). She wears a cream colored collared dress with an apron with red stripes beneath her waist. She also wears red high heels and has pink/red lipstick on and a golden wedding ring on her left hand. When Tired or Fatigued, she will look malnourished, with skin pressed in and muscle exposed. When tired, her arms will be resting on her lap. When dead, she appears as a skeleton with her body bent backwards over the seat, with her skull on the floor and ribs poking outwards. Her other arm seems to be missing.The head seems to be disconnected from the body. In the 60 Seconds! promo, she wears a pink, sleeveless shirt and red sunglasses.
- If Dolores is left Insane for too long, she will leave the shelter claiming to search for her father.
- If she goes insane, she has a possibility of destroying the Radio, Deck of Cards, an entire Soup Can, or an entire Water Bottle.
- If Dolores makes it to the shelter alone during the Scavenging part of the game, she will go insane on Day 2. You can reset insanity by playing out Events that raise sanity, but the next day she will go Insane again (unless a pet is in shelter).
- When scavenging, she is likely to bring back items that reduce Insanity (i.e. Deck of Cards or Checkers), and Soup Cans and Water Bottles.
- During the scavenging section of the game, she can be seen reading a book and drinking what is confirmed to be coffee as seen on the upcoming Atomic Roadmap DLC.
- Dolores' mother is referenced by Dolores in the event where she destroys the Radio.
- Without any status effect, Dolores looks like she is blaming Ted when she is looking at him.
- Dolores looks a bit like a zombie when she is Insane and Tired (even more so when she's Sick, Fatigued and Injured).
- Dolores seems to be the most resistant character to Insanity. Furthermore, she commonly brings the Deck of Cards, an item commonly used to increase sanity. (However, In The Article of Mary Jane, She is told to be the most resistant to insanity).
- It is possible for her to appear in the shelter, even if Ted doesn't bring her into the shelter during the scavenging section of the game if the player opens the door for her in the early days.
- Her name means 'sorrows and pain' in Spanish.
- There is an annoying bug where Dolores eats a rather weird amount of food usually after a long expedition.
- She only seems to age in the Reatomized version of the game (judging by the hair growth).
- In the sequel, 60 Parsecs, if the player uses the mask to help throw an epic party that A.S.T.R.O mentions, the text in the captain's log the next day says that the captain used the mask or sock to act as a person. A mysterious "Dolores". The name can also be replaced with "Ted", "Timmy", and rarely "Mary Jane".
- There is a chance that while scavenging, Dolores will come back with a radio. A group of survivors gave it to her claiming it was "evil". She apparently traded it for a single bottle cap, possibly a reference to the Fallout series in which bottle caps are used as a form of currency in the apocalypse

- Several Tweets from the official Robot Gentleman Twitter account use the word 'McDoodle' when referring to the Family and their full name: https://twitter.com/search?q=%23McDoodleFamily,%20OR%20%23McDoodle,%20OR%20%23TedMcDoodle,%20OR%20%23DoloresMcDoodle,%20OR%20%23TimmyMcDoodle,%20OR%20%23MaryJaneMcDoodle%20from:robotgentleman&src=typd
