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.
