Thomas Wydler (born 9 October 1959, Zurich, Switzerland), is a Swiss musician best known for being a core member of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, of which he has been a drummer since 1985. Prior to joining them, he was a member of the experimental German band Die Haut. Wydler has been present on almost every Bad Seeds album, making his first appearance on Kicking Against The Pricks. Wydler is the longest-serving member of the Bad Seeds due to Mick Harvey's departure in late January 2009, and he splits drumming duties with Jim Sclavunos with each sharing percussive roles.

Wydler has performed vocals on the album Murder Ballads singing a verse from "Death is not the End", and also pursues his solo career which can be heard on his Myspace page.
