Robert "Bob" Richards (ボブ (Bobu?)) is a character as well as a hero in the Tekken series who was introduced in Tekken 6 and returned for Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion. Bob is a renowned martial arts prodigy from the USA.
An alternate version of himself named Slim Bob is playable in Tekken Tag Tournament 2. As the name suggests, he is a skinny version of Bob which made an appearance in his Tekken 6 ending.
Bob had always been very serious about his training. He was hailed as a master of martial arts from a very young age, and he garnered many fans with his chiseled body and good looks. However, he could not defeat opponents who were larger than him. He vanished from the martial arts scene and dedicated himself to a special training regimen that increased his power and weight while maintaining his agility.
After several years in seclusion, Bob returned to the fighting world a changed man. Those who know Bob were astonished by his transformation. His handsome looks were gone and he gained a disproportionate amount of weight. Bob paid no attention to his critics, and relied on the benefits of his training: speed, power and unyielding weight. He decided that he was ready to return to competition; he joined the sixth King of Iron Fist Tournament to test his martial arts abilities once again.
Ending Description: After winning the tournament, Bob became a worldwide sensation. And his schedule was filled with a series of television and magazine interviews, with his training secrets becoming unearthed. After cameras take multiple photos, a poster of his obese self appears on the wall, with a blurry image of Bob walking by. He weighs himself in his exercise room, where he discovers he only weighs a shocking 150 lbs on a scale. He steps off, wondering if it was just an illusion, then weighs himself again. After looking at the number once more, not believing that he really weighed 150 lbs. The camera then shows Bob, wearing heavy clothing covering a skinnier and slimmer body, and he shouts in horror, accepting the fact that all of his famous weight vanished without him ever knowing it. He then proceeds to bang his head on the wall, only to be found in the middle of the floor, passed out.
Bob will be added in Fated Retribution update.
