Melvin Frohike is a fictional character in the television shows The X-Files and The Lone Gunmen, played by Tom Braidwood.

Frohike was born circa 1953 in Pontiac, Michiganmarker. Prior to joining The Lone Gunmen, he was an acclaimed tango dancer in Miamimarker. On giving up the tango, he toured the country with hippies before founding Frohike Electronics Corp, specializing in cable pirating hardware.

In 1989 at a consumer electronics show in Baltimoremarker, where his company had a trade stand, he met John Byers and Richard Langly and subsequently they formed a group publishing The Lone Gunmen Newsletter.

Frohike is the shortest of the three members of the Lone Gunmen and is terminally scruffy with a unique dress sense. In earlier X-Files appearances, he sported a short ponytail, and favors wearing woolen vests, braces and leather, together with his trademark fingerless gloves.

He is the Lone Gunmen’s expert in photography, special operations and electronic surveillance and is something of an engineering wizard.

Frohike has a deep attraction for Agent Scully. In his first appearance he was taking photographs of her, ogling her and calling her “tasty”. Whilst this attraction seemed rather lustful at first, he has shown genuine affection for Scully (and Mulder) on numerous occasions, being the first person to bring her flowers after she returned from her abduction in the episode "One Breath", and rescuing her from the attentions of Morris Fletcher in "Three of a Kind".

All three of the Lone Gunmen die in the X-Files episode "Jump the Shark". They intentionally lock themselves in a closed hallway; this saves thousands from a terrorist created plague. AD Skinner arranges for them to be interred at Arlington National Cemeterymarker.
