In Warcraft III, Tyler and Robert are two humans of the local populace in Vandermar Village. Brash and arrogant, Robert used his big size to intimidate and bully, until Tyler had enough and both men battered each other senseless as the Undead swept over the Village. He doesn't care who he fights for, he just likes fighting.
Although never visible in-game, opening the Warcraft III map file for the first Undead mission reveals Robert's tooltip as the following: "Robert-Paul's son is slow and lumbering, but he makes up for this with great vitality and a mean left hook."
- Robert stands near a number of other characters in Undercity, including Tyler, Richard Van Brunt, Edward, Andrew Hartwell, Riley Walker, Chloe Curthas, and Marla Fowler. Many if not all of these characters are references to the movie Fight Club, either using the movie's characters' first names, or the names of their respective actors.
- Both the appearances of Robert in World of Warcraft and Warcraft III are references to the movie Fight Club.
