The Pantry is an escape room that is found within the Suspicion fragment for C-Team. It is compact, rectangular shaped area divided into two sections, one section that stores and prepares dry food and another section that acts as a freezer. It is searched by Carlos and Akane Kurashiki. Junpei is missing during this puzzle.


The pantry is stocked with a variety of non-perishables such as potatoes, canned food and crackers to wait out a long nuclear winter. It also holds a refrigerator, a freezer, and a device called a thermofridge which can warm up or cool down objects. The camera pans to the blue doll holding an arm.


Carlos and Akane wake up inside of the pantry and check the time. Soon, they notice Junpei is missing. Carlos says that he may have gotten out of the room before them and suggests they do so as well. Akane then talks to Carlos about her childhood and how she met Junpei. She also explains how special he is to her. This leads to Carlos bringing up his sister's condition, but before telling her anymore, the pair decides to find a way out of the room.
