!!Chris Adams (Creator/YulBrynner, George Kennedy[[note]]the third one[[/note]], Creator/LeeVanCleef[[note]]the fourth one[[/note]])

-->'''Chris:''' "I've been offered a lot for my work, but never everything."

A veteran gunslinger of Cajun origin. When he hears from the villagers why they hope to try and barter for guns and ammunition, he suggests that they would be better served trying to recruit professional gunmen to defend them instead. Though initially reluctant to accept the role, in the end, he assembles a RagtagBandOfMisfits and leads the defense of the village. The only character to appear in all four films.

* BadassBaritone: Chris has a deep, resonant voice that oozes badassery.
* BaldOfAwesome: Under his hat.

* IGaveMyWord: He took a contract with the villagers and he'll see it through.
* TheLeader
* NiceGuy: A textbook example.
* NiceHat: Which he never takes off.
* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: Makes one wonder why a cowboy played by Yul Brynner would have a distinctly American-sounding name like '''Chris Adams'''. His subdued-but-noticeable Russian accent is handwaved by him being Cajun ([[AsLongAsItSoundsForeign an accent that definitely doesn't sound Russian]])
* TheStoic
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Harry.

!!Vin (Creator/SteveMcQueen, Robert Fuller)
-->'''Vin''': Reminds me of that fellow back home that fell off a ten story building.\\
'''Chris''': What about him?\\
'''Vin''': Well, as he was falling people on each floor kept hearing him say, "So far, so good." Tch, so far, so good.

A drifter and a gambler currently completely bankrupt due to losing at poker, he joins the defense because he can't stand the alternative of working off the debt in a store. One of the three members of the initial band to survive, he returns only for the first sequel.

An Irish/Mexican gunslinger who joins the band due to having fallen on hard times.

* CharacterDeath: [[spoiler: Shot by the fleeing bandits while trying to protects three boys. He exchanges a few words with the boys about their fathers before he dies.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: When Chris first meets up with him, he's chopping wood. Chris says he heard Bernardo was "down on his luck". Bernardo's reply is "No, I'm doing this because I'm an eccentric millionaire."
* FallenOnHardTimesJob: He's reduced to chopping wood for his breakfast.
* FriendToAllChildren
* FriendlySniper: He's often posted on rooftops with his rifle.
* TheHeart: He's the one who points out that while the gunmen eat nice meals, the villagers have tortillas and a few beans. They soon fix that...
* HowTheMightyHaveFallen: He was a well-paid BountyHunter; now he has to chop wood for a living, so even the measly pay the villagers are offering is a fortune.

* SayMyName: [[spoiler:[[InvokedTrope Invokes]] this as he dies.]]
* TheStoic
* UnwantedAssistance: [[invoked]][[InUniverse Within the film,]] his InstantFanClub [[spoiler:ends up getting him killed during the final battle when he has to pay attention to protecting them instead of being able to concentrate on what he's doing.]]

!!Lee (Creator/RobertVaughn)

A veteran gunslinger of considerable skill who is suffering from a crisis of confidence, as the terrifying reputation he has built has made life difficult for him and his nerve has been shattered due to all the deaths on his hands.

* BrokenAce: Lee is a {{Deconstruction}} of the swaggering gunslinger archetype. He is originally found sleeping in a stable for an extortive rent because the innkeeper won't rent a proper room to him for fear that he'll get into a fight inside the inn. He's skittish and paranoid from being jumped too many times, and has nightmares from the fights he's been in.
* CanonForeigner: He is the only one of the seven who isn't directly adapted from ''Film/SevenSamurai''. His characterization as a fighter who's lost his nerve would have been unbecoming of any samurai.
* CatapultNightmare: He scrambles across his room in a panic when he awakens from a nightmare.
* TheDandy: He's undoubtedly the best dressed of the seven.
* HowTheMightyHaveFallen: While trying to catch flies in his hand. "There was a time I could have got all three."
* NiceGuy: Hinted at, with his interactions with the villagers.
* TheQuietOne: Except for Britt, he speaks the fewest lines. He has 16 while Britt has 11.
* ThePerilsOfBeingTheBest: His life as a deadly and notorious gunfighter had led to him constantly being attacked by men who want to claim his reputation for themselves, which in turn has left him a paranoid and lonely wreck.
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: Finally finds his nerve in the climactic final battle and ends up killed right afterward.
* SharpDressedMan: Stylishly, in the gunslinger equivalent of a tailored business suit.
* ShellShockedVeteran: Not from a "formal" war...but his own war of being a long-time gunfighter.
* TheSixthRanger
* TheSmartGuy
* TheStoic: Very quiet and withdrawn, but in a more sensitive fashion.
** NotSoStoic: Is shown screaming for mercy while he had that nightmare.

!!Harry Luck (Creator/BradDexter)

A greedy treasure seeker and Chris's best friend.

* ChangedMyMindKid: When he [[spoiler:returns for the final battle.]]
* ConMan
* TheEveryman
* MyFriendsAndZoidberg: The only actor of the Seven who didn't become a big star in some way.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: Not quite.
* [[spoiler: RedemptionEqualsDeath: Rides back into town to help Chris, but is shot and killed by the Bandits.]]
* TheSmartGuy
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Chris.

!!Britt (Creator/JamesCoburn)

A quiet cowboy who's just as skilled with a knife as with a gun, and joins the Seven to further test his skills.

* BadassBaritone: Britt has a deep, smooth voice (courtesy of James Coburn) that oozes badassery.
* BadassBoast: Chris delivers one for him by proxy, describing him to the villagers as the best they could hope to find with gun or knife, completely uninterested in money.
-->'''Miguel:''' If he is the best with a gun and a knife, with whom does he compete?\\
'''Chris:''' Himself.
** He delivers another one when the seven, after getting kicked out of town, are debating whether or not to go back. It's one of his longest lines
-->'''Britt:''' Nobody throws me my own gun and says run. Nobody.
* TheBigGuy
* CharacterDeath: [[spoiler: shot by the bandits as they flee after Calvera is killed. He rises to his feet and draws his knife, but falls over dead, the knife sticking into the wall in front of him.]]
* [[ChekhovsGun Chekhov's Knife]]: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]], as [[spoiler:he draws his famous blade during the final battle, but is shot to death before he can use it.]]
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: In his opening scene, (which lasts 2:28) he only speaks a total of five words. He also uses a knife in a gunfight and ''wins.''
* {{Expy}}: Of [[Film/SevenSamurai Kyuzo]], and the biggest {{Expy}} of the bunch. James Coburn said he deliberately incorporated Seiji Miyaguchi's performance as Kyuzo into his performance.
* KnifeNut
* TheQuietOne: Britt is ''very'' quiet, using as few words as humanly possible. Throughout the entire film he has only eleven lines, most of them quite short.
* SilentSnarker: Despite his terseness, Britt has no difficulty communicating his opinions. His response to a hotheaded cowboy trying to provoke him with insults is to pointedly pull his hat down over his eyes and go back to napping.
* SpiritedCompetitor: As described by Chris, Britt doesn't care about money - it's the challenge to his skills that motivates him.
* TheStoic

!!Chico (Creator/HorstBuchholz, Julian Mateos)

A young, inexperienced gunslinger who wants to make a name for himself. [[spoiler: Having given up on the gunslinger life to marry Petra, he is thusly one of the fifty men kidnapped to be slaves in the first sequel.]]

* BadassInDistress: During the second film.
* BavarianFireDrill
* BoomerangBigot: He really dislikes farmers, but [[spoiler:ends up becoming one himself at the end so that he can stay in the village with Petra.]]
* CallToAgriculture: Despite explicitly stating in an earlier scene that he had no intention of settling down, [[spoiler:he does just this at the end so that he can stay with Petra.]]
* CompositeCharacter: Of Katsushiro (the inexperienced young man who [[spoiler:has a relationship with a farmer's daughter]]) and Kikuchiyo (the hotheaded wannabe who [[spoiler:comes from a farming village]]).
* TheGunfighterWannabe
* GuileHero: What strikes the viewer about Chico is that he's not the best gunfighter, so he uses his wits to prove himself useful, such as his BavarianFireDrill tactic and his infiltration of Calvera's camp.
* HotBlooded: The most of the Seven.
* IChooseToStay
* KidAppealCharacter
* LargeHam: At times. Not as wacky as Kikuchiyo, but has a few moments.
* LeeroyJenkins: He lacks the patience of his comrades, charging into a shoot-out and nearly getting his head blown off and attempting to pistol-whip Calvera. In the latter case, Chris manages to stop him getting killed right there and then.
* MeaningfulName: Chico means "kid" in Spanish.
* NaiveNewcomer
* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: Horst Buchholz does pretty much nothing to hide his German accent.
* SarcasmBlind: Vin and Chris sarcastically suggest that he go and ask Calvera his plans for the night. Chico does ''exactly that'', infiltrating Calvera's camp and even speaking directly with Calvera under the cover of the particularly dim fire in the camp. Without being discovered as a spy, Chico slips away from Calvera's camp, returns to the village, and tells everyone the awful truth that [[spoiler:Calvera's men are starving and have nowhere else to turn for food]].
* TagalongKid
* TheTeamWannabe
* TokenRomance: With Petra.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: [[spoiler:His Kikuchiyo half, in this case.]]
* YoungGun

!!Calvera (Creator/EliWallach)

The enigmatic leader of the bandits terrorizing the village.

* AlasPoorVillain: You feel at least a little bit of pity for him when he dies.
* BackstabBackfire: Tries to shoot Chris in the back during the final battle. However, Chris is too quick for him and kills him.
* BadassMustache
* BadBoss: An extremely mild version. He doesn't outright abuse his men; he even openly admits the responsibility he carries for looking after them. But he seems cold and careless about the casualties from the first gunfight (unless [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation he's upset about the loss as well and doesn't want to think about it]].)
-->'''Calvera:''' Talk, talk! They´re all dead anyway. Forget about them. [[WeHaveReserves There´s still plenty of us here to make them pay.]]
* {{Bandito}}
* BeardOfEvil: With a wispy mustache.
* BigBad: Organised and put together enough to be a serious threat.
* DiesWideOpen: After his FamousLastWords.
* TheDreaded: Is mentioned frequently throughout and has about five appearances in the entire film.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He's appalled at the lack of religion and how a church is impoverished. He still robbed it, though.
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: "You came back... For a place like this? Why? A man like you -- Why...?"
* EvilIsHammy: And steals every scene.
* FamousLastWords: See EvilCannotComprehendGood.
* GirlyRun: As characteristic of his actor, his run is quite dainty and delicate.
* GoldTooth: Has a couple of them.
* GoodHairEvilHair: His hair is sweaty and slicked down.
* {{Jerkass}}: Crass, mean and cruel to the farmers.
-->"If God did not want them sheared, he would not have made them sheep."
* ItsAllAboutMe: Though he has to think about providing food for his many men as well.
* LargeHam
* {{Leitmotif}}: An awesome one that made Eli wish he'd ridden his horse better.
* NiceHat: A black sombrero.
* PetTheDog: He steals to provide for his men.
-->'''Calvera:''' What if you had to carry my load, huh? The need to provide food, [[AFatherToHisMen like a good father]], to fill the mouths of his hungry men. Guns, ammunition you know how much money that costs? Huh? Huh?
* PragmaticVillain: Attempts to be this by sending the Seven away so that they don't bring the US Army with them. It backfires horribly.
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: Wears a garish red shirt that offsets his black trousers and hat.
* SmugSnake: Pompous and likes to hear himself talk.
* VillainousValour: He isn't afraid to fight on the front line in the final battle.
* WeaponOfChoice: A Colt Single Action Army "QuickDraw" (4.75 inch barrel).
