|~ A possessed Bruce hunting for Nancy Wheeler.|
Bruce Lowe is a recurring character and a minor antagonist in the third season of Stranger Things. He is a journalist at the Hawkins Post with a sick sense of humor. He cruelly makes fun of women, especially Nancy Wheeler when she started working at the Post. He ended up becoming one of the people possessed by the Mind Flayer until he was killed by Nancy.
Bruce was known for being disrespectful towards women. He would often make Nancy Wheeler a frequent target of his mockery.
- Bruce's character with a "sick sense of humor" was left a mystery by the Duffer Brothers until the release of the third season of Stranger Things where he cruelly mocks women.
- Bruce's possession was not shown on screen but was confirmed when he felt Tom's pain through their hive mind after the latter was hit with a vase.
- Bruce was similar to Chi-Fu from Disney's 1998 film Mulan where both men hate, disrespect and mock members of the opposing gender, especially the main character. However, Chi-Fu was not a villain as he has good morals for helping the Emperor and fighting against Shan Yu while Bruce was outright evil both before and after being possessed by the Mind Flayer.
- Bruce also draws inspiration from Jack Torrance in The Shining, most notably in his pursuit of Nancy - he smashes the window and leers through the glass, echoing Jack Nicholson's famous 'Here's Johnny' moment. And like Jack, he mockingly pursues the woman he is after until she brings him down with a blunt instrument.
