Bruce "Brucie" Kibbutz is a fitness enthusiast in Grand Theft Auto IV. He is a steroid user and possible dealer of performance enhancing drugs, something that has resulted in a few encounters with law enforcement. Loud, egotistical, self-centered and impulsive, his attitude and personality are the complete opposite of Niko Bellic's; nonetheless, the two become good friends over time. Despite his protestations that he is not Russian, Niko is praised by the oblivious Brucie for his "Red Army" fighting and driving skills.

Brucie is a successful entrepreneur who runs a garage in East Hook, Liberty City. He thinks little of flaunting his money and has even started his own website called Brucie's Executive Lifestyle, the actual purpose of which is unknown, but which seems to be a combined blog/lifestyle guide. Brucie indulges in what he calls "juicing" - injecting testosterone allegedly taken from Chilean bull sharks. It has led to excessive 'roid rage, and may account for Brucie's current mindset.

Brucie, besides being extremely rich, also has a taste for sports cars and women. He is a womanizer, and is openly disrespectful towards women; it is implied that they are only drawn to Brucie because of his vast fortune, which he uses to take them on powerboat and helicopter rides throughout Liberty City. Brucie's attitude towards life has also attracted many friends, including Roman Bellic, who aspire to live like him (Roman and Brucie met through his website). Eventually, Roman introduces Brucie to his cousin Niko, who starts to work for Brucie. At first it appears as though Brucie is working for some sort of crime boss, as he orders Lyle Rivas killed for cooperating with police. Later, Lyle's car is stolen and his cousin Tom is killed by Niko. Niko later learns that Brucie is largely a legitimate business owner (though his Executive Lifestyle Auto shop is a "chop shop"), and not involved in organized crime - it is implied that the missions he set you were unnecessarily violent, mostly fueled by 'roid rage. Brucie, however, does not contradict the justifications for his prior missions (silencing snitches, etc).

Following this revelation, Niko ends the business relationship with Brucie, however the two remain friends and socialize often. Brucie introduces Niko to the world of underground street racing as well, along with a stolen car ring. First, Niko performs a series of thefts for Brucie through email listings, and then eventually he is introduced to a colleague named Stevie, whose list is much more difficult to attain - Brucie's requests take the form of mini-missions, with markers designating the vehicle locations, whereas Stevie's requests merely specify the make of the vehicle, and its general vicinity. Brucie also tips Niko off to a vigilante system set up by the Liberty City Police Department, where they have contracted out assassinations to vigilantes like Niko through a "Most Wanted List".

The Ballad of Gay Tony

Brucie is one of the few characters from the original GTA IV that actually engages with Luis in extended dialogue, often appearing along with Roman either inside, or trying to get into Maisonette 9.

During his appearances in Mori's missions, Brucie's arrogant, self-absorbed and egotistic lifestyle is revealed to be the result of living in his older brother's (figurative) shadow, Mori constantly putting him down over his pale skin, inferior success and having to rely on steroids to bulk up muscle mass amongst numerous other things. At several points we see Brucie genuinely hurt, even crying, because of Mori's cruelty towards him, although during the final mission No. 3, Brucie, having taken enough abuse, breaks Mori's nose, finally besting his brother.

It is also implied in The Ballad of Gay Tony, that Brucie is actually bisexual, as it seems that he tries to kiss Luis in a later mission, even though he very quickly covers his tracks, claiming that he was just checking to see Luis wasn't going to come on to him.

In the ending credits it reveals that Brucie and Mori enterd themselves into the L.C. Fight Club and are seen fighting in the cage. This is most likely due to the fact that Mori became insecure when Brucie broke his nose, and wanted either revenge, or to prove to himself he was still better then his little brother.
