Top Ten Best Characters from Westerns
The Top Ten
Many western characters were inspired by this guy, even Marty McFly was inspired by him (recall that particular scene in the third movie where he used a bullet proof vest).
Every guy wants to be Blondie, don't they?
We could all be Tuco!
Determined and temperamental. So funny and One of the best characters ever!
Trying to enjoy whatever he can salvage.
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.
Scrappy and sensitive, Chuncho would shoot his own friends if he feels they have betrayed him, yet deeply cares about his brother.
Shrewd and dignified, she remains a great businesswoman even as she faces prejudice in her town for being Mexican and female. - SourNote2014
Definition of bad-ass. One of the reasons I started play harmonica
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.
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.
A crafty, fierce bandita with issues. Pretty much saves Martine Bestwick and her dodgy accent.
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.
Despite him looking EXACTLY like Angel Eyes, which must have unnerved Blondie, he's quite a good man.
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.
Blending together Katsushiro and Kikuchiyo was no easy feat, but this movie just about manages.
A beautiful blend of Kikuchiyo and Katsushiro.
An expert blend of Katsushiro's eager naivite and Kikuchiyo's boisterous, unrelenting emotion.
Friendly, sharp and charismatic. A rare heroic role from Christoph Waltz.
Played by a very young Clint Eastwood.
I got the title wrong-- it was "The White, the YELLOW, the Black"
A grouchy, serious, straight-laced sheriff henpecked by his wife and married to his job, poor Edward doesn't catch a break in this movie, being robbed, sent falling through a bridge and, like all of Eli Wallach's other Spaghetti Western characters, nearly hanged.
Wallach's keen turn as the sheriff is a welcome break from typecasting as the lovable outlaw type and shows his versatility as an actor.
A cunning and crafty outlaw of Swiss-Italian descent.
He's an underrated fellow, probably because he's just a retread of another character, Tuco Ramirez. To an extent, that's true. But Caco is slightly smarter, has a craftier look in his eye, and is kinder, gentler and quirkier than his counterpart. He has more weight and sadness in his eyes, but still a lot of charm.
A really cool character we honestly could have gotten to know more about.
Sorry, Dollars Trilogy fans... I kinda like him better than Blondie. His story is the same a s Blondie's. He comes into a town and gets rid of the corruption by pitting the two gangs against each other. He's much more interesting in that he's more or less friends with one of the gangs, and that he actually gets something close to a love interest. Blondie/Joe expressed some attraction towards Marisol, but when he found she was married with a child, he viewed her a bit more platonically. We haven't seen him with any romantic interest in women.
It's implied with Django that he had someone, but he'd "lost her forever", and is about to do so with the woman in this film. So his situation affects him much more personally.
Also, he's a former Union soldier. You don't get cooler than that.
OK, less than FIVE minutes.
While Tuco had as much screentime as he pleased to develop into a fully-rounded, compelling, interesting character, the Union Captain, played by Aldo Giuffre only needed one scene. He went from comic drunk to tragic and desperate figure in less than twenty minutes.
Just as bad morally as the other characters in the film, yet somehow she's so much more likable. Maybe because she's constantly beaten up by the other characters so it's hard not to feel sorry for her.
He seems innocent but he's just as treacherous as the rest of the Agry family, and a ton of fun to watch. - SourNote2014
This character pleasantly surprised me. She was patient, but tenacious. - SourNote2014
Because he's like a prototype for Jesse Pinkman. - SourNote2014
