Bob's real name
is Robert Richards.
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 King of Iron
Fist Tournament 6 to test his martial arts abilities once again. A skinny version of Bob (Slim Bob) is a selectable
character in Tekken Tag Tournament 2.
