Top Ten Best Characters from Westerns


The Top Ten

1 The Man with No Name - The Dollars Trilogy

Every guy wants to be Blondie, don't they?

2 Rooster Cogburn - True Grit
3 Frank - Once Upon a Time in the West
4 Tuco Ramírez - The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

How to describe dear Tuco? Feisty, scruffy, mercurial, temperamental, entertainingly psychotic, lovably goofy, and the one you end up caring about the most. Utterly hilarious, and his dysfunctional bromance with Blondie is timeless. And he has that adorable little run.
Possibly the greatest movie character ever.

5 Doc Holiday - Tombstone
6 The Sundance Kid - Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid
7 Ethan Edwards - The Searchers
8 Chuncho Muñoz - A Bullet for the General

Scrappy and sensitive, Chuncho would shoot his own friends if he feels they have betrayed him, yet deeply cares about his brother.

9 Helen Ramirez - High Noon

Shrewd and dignified, she remains a great businesswoman even as she faces prejudice in her town for being Mexican and female. - SourNote2014

10 Harmonica - Once Upon a Time in the West

Definition of bad-ass. One of the reasons I started play harmonica

The Contenders

11 Juan Martinez - The Ox-Bow Incident
12 Calvera - The Magnificent Seven

Is there more depth to him than he lets on? Who knows?

In any case, he's a fun villain who kept us wanting more of him in every scene he stole.

13 Mary O'Donnell - Don't Turn the Other Cheek

A bespectacled Irish action girl virgin Catholic revolutionary reporter who comes to Dmitri and Max's rescue many times. Shame she never got the thanks she deserved.

14 Pablo Ramirez - The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
15 Vin - The Magnificent Seven

Or Shichiroji's, for that matter (Sorry, I confused him with Chris).

To be honest, he lacks Kambei Shimada's warmth and presence. But he's pretty cool, I guess.

16 Adelita - A Bullet for the General
17 Rattlesnake Jake - Rango

Yeah, he's animated. But come on. A black hat rattlesnake outlaw who looks like Angel Eyes and has a gatling gun grafted onto his TAIL? You don't get cooler than that.

18 Colonel Mortimer - For a Few Dollars More

Despite him looking EXACTLY like Angel Eyes, which must have unnerved Blondie, he's quite a good man.

19 Chico - The Magnificent Seven

Blending together Katsushiro and Kikuchiyo was no easy feat, but this movie just about manages.

An expert blend of Katsushiro's eager naivite and Kikuchiyo's boisterous, unrelenting emotion.
