Bob Bryar is best known as the former drummer of American alternative rock band My Chemical Romance, one of the core three bands constituting Bandom canon. He joined the band in 2004, having been introduced by their then manager Brian Schechter, who knew him in his capacity as a sound technician for peripheral bandom band The Used, which Schechter also managed.

He parted ways with the band in 2010, before touring for fourth album Danger Days began, under still-unknown circumstances. His relationship with the band subsequent to his departure has been fraught. He has since returned to relative anonymity.

Depiction in Fanon

This article or section needs expansion.

Bob is often depicted as having a calming influence on more excitable members of the band, sometimes as the Dom in a BDSM relationship. This trope is most prevalent in Frank/Bob works.

In fanworks set in the Killjoys verse, which was released after his departure from the band, Bob's absence is sometimes explained by his death or capture.
