Barry Steakfries is the main protagonist in Jetpack Joyride. The story behind Jetpack Joyride is that Barry is a struggling gramophone salesman and comes across the lab of Legitimate Research where he sees a Jetpack as a way of escaping of his traditional life as a struggling salesman. Barry then, sure enough, breaks into the facility and steals the Machine Gun Jetpack from the Scientists, proceeding to destroy everything in his way.
On his Joyride, Barry finds Obstacles, Coins and many Spin Tokens.
He has brown eyes, hair and a shaved beard of the same color, a tie, a shirt, pants and little dots which would be his "Five O'clock shadow". Before breaking in the laboratory he wore glasses and had sleeves, which he ripped. He is mainly seen in game artworks with a Machine Gun Jetpack.
- Barry first appeared in Age of Zombies as the main character.
- He also appeared in Monster Dash.
- He wears the same traditional suit in every other game.
- When he breaks in, a sign that says "Do not steal" is seen.
- When Barry dies and gets a Final Blast, he will tense up while flying, even though he is dead. This may hint that he is in fact not dead.
- However, once he lands and slides, he will appear limp again.
