The bounty hunter is one of the most diverse roless and depending on his choices he can be ''anything''. Sometimes the Bounty Hunter is a villain, a sadist who profits off the death and suffering of others and who couldn't care less about justice. In that case, the best he can possibly be is a NominalHero who may hunt villains and do the right thing for all the wrong reasons. If that's the case then it is almost guaranteed that he will come in conflict with the heroes either because their head promises the biggest paycheck or because he wants to be the one to capture the criminal and won't hesitate to kill and become himself a criminal over it. Sometimes he's a GlorySeeker who wants to bring down the toughest targets. More often, though, he is a just a working stiff who tries to do the right thing- or something close to it. Buried deep within his grizzled, world-weary exterior is still an idealist with a heart of gold. Because there is nothing that prevents a Bounty Hunter from taking both legal and shady bounties, this character is usually a LawfulNeutral.

* And, in sharp contrast, we have the villainous Lockdown of ''TransformersAnimated'', who [[OrganTheft takes parts of his quarry]] [[CreepySouvenir as trophies]] before turning them over to his employer. PsychoForHire with a dash of creepiness to boot.

* ''Franchise/StarWars'' features a number of bounty hunters. Greedo shows up first, trying to capture Han Solo and cash in on the bounty Jabba the Hutt has placed on him. The Empire eventually hires the services of a number of bounty hunters, most notably [[EnsembleDarkhorse Boba Fett]].

* ''Anime/SpaceDandy's'' job is a variation of this, hunting down undiscovered alien species and cashing them in to the Alien Registration Center for sizable bounties. He's generally fairly inept at this and often fails due to incompetence, bad luck (or in some cases) letting the bounty go for their own good.

What exactly happens to the aliens after they're brought in for registration never specified and seems a bit inconsistent. While deliberately letting aliens he's befriended go might imply that it's something unpleasant, it could just as easily imply that Dandy is too stupid to know since Alien Registration Center are certainly not portrayed as villains.



** ''Film/AttackOfTheClones'' features Boba's father, Jango. Like Boba, he's supposedly the best bounty hunter in the galaxy. Also like Boba he operates more as an assassin and mercenary than an actual bounty hunter.

Also like Boba he operates more as an assassin and mercenary than an actual bounty hunter. Or at the very least, he's not choosy about whether the bounty he's pursuing is a legal one, so long as the credits are good.[[note]]Technically, the bounty/assassination contract he's working ''is'' legal in the eyes of the Neimoidian government, but very much illegal in the eyes of the Galactic Republic government.[[/note]]

* There's a large presence of bounty hunters (for relatively small bounties; large bounties are almost always for OneManArmy/PersonOfMassDestruction types that few people outside high-ranking Marines and fellow pirates could possibly take down) in the ''Manga/OnePiece'' world, given that one of the ways the government keeps crime in check is by offering rewards for captured or killed criminals (they, however, pay 30% less if the criminal is killed).
** Roronoa Zoro, one of the protagonists, chased bounties for a living before joining with Luffy, and his past helped the marines give him the epithet "Pirate Hunter".

killed, as only a live criminal can be given a public execution. It is possible for a bounty to be for live capture only, though to date there is only one known example of this [[spoiler:involving a criminal who is also royalty]]. While given the nature of the story, most bounty targets are pirates, land-based criminals and the anti-government Revolutionary Army also qualify.

His former partners Johnny and Yosaku remain bounty hunters, though seeing as they operate out of the East Blue they mostly chase small-time criminals.



** While their primary job is scrapping retired ships, the Franky Family of Water 7 also did bounty hunting work on the side. This came to an end after the Enies Lobby Arc, when their leader Franky was issued a bounty of his own and joined the Straw Hat Pirates. The rest of the group move into other, less dangerous jobs.

* Bounty hunting is the occupation of Jet Black, Spike Spiegel, Faye Valentine, and about 300,000 folks in the ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' universe. In fact, so many people make a living chasing criminals in the future that a cheesy Western-themed TV series (a cross between ''{{Series/Bonanza}}'' and an interplanetary ''AmericasMostWanted'') exists to provide them with intel on known bounty heads. All bounties must be taken alive, which is why the cast [[PerpetualPoverty miss almost every big bounty]], as well as in one particularly unlucky case, ''crashed into a police station'', and once when they weren't given a bounty for stopping an AI in a satellite as it technically doesn't count as "alive".
