"I have a PhD"
— Brian (in pretty much every Game Grumps video he's in)

Brian Wecht (PhD)
Ninja Brian


Dr. Brian Wecht, Ph.D. (Born April 22, 1975) also known as Ninja Brian, also known as Spyyyder, is a comedian, musician and theoretical physicist (no, seriously, he has a PhD). He is a pianist, keyboardist, a ninja and forms half of the band Ninja Sex Party alongside Danny. He is also an official Game Grumps member as of the 5th of November, 2015.

Ninja Sex PartyEdit

In Ninja Sex Party, with his PhD, Brian portrays the character Ninja Brian who is the keyboardist and Danny's silent sidekick with a PhD. Typically in all the videos, Brian doesn't speak at all and gives a deadly stare directly into the camera at the viewers in many shots, probably because he has a PhD. In most of their videos Danny will end up insulting Brian which angers him and causes him to kill Danny at the end, with his PhD.

Ninja Brian's character has also been shown to have the ability to destroy things with his mind, an ability he probably gained thanks to his PhD, seen in "Let's Get This Terrible Party Started" (which Jon, Barry, and Ross appear in, Suzy made the props for, and was directed by Arin). In the video "Best Friends Forever" it is shown that Brian has a bad habit of killing every friend Danny makes and even anyone who tries to be his friends as well when Danny tried to have him make friends with another ninja named Ninja Jim. Brian has a PhD.
