The idea of Scissorman's blades comes from watching the movie "The Burning" when I was a child. The scary backlit silhouette of a murderous demon, with his garden shears, sent shivers down my spine.
~ The creator's comment about Bobby.

Bobby Barrows is a major antagonist in the Clock Tower series. He is the first Scissorman to appear in the Clock Tower series. He is the son of Mary Barrows and the twin brother of Dan Barrows.

He is the secondary antagonist in the 1995 videogame Clock Tower: The First Fear and a posthumous antagonist in the second game, Clock Tower.

She soon finds herself being stalked after finding either Laura or Anne killed by a murderous little boy with deformed features, wielding a giant pair of scissors. Laura's corpse would be found hanged at the bathtub, or found in a suit of armor in the second living room if the player dares to click on it, while Anne would die either by being impaled through a stained-glass ceiling, drowning in the pool of the courtyard, or being impaled through a window in Mary's office. The boy is Bobby Barrows, the Scissorman, who will be Jennifer's main stalker and tormentor for the rest of the game.
