** In "Powerplay", Zee and Barr are the nicest and prettiest bounty hunters you could meet. Pity their job is capturing people so they can be dissected for their HumanResources.

** In "Bounty", the Liberator is seized by the Amagons, SpacePirates who engage in a variety of criminal activities including bounty hunting.
** In "Blake", the planet Gauda Prime is a CrapsackWorld where all laws have been suspended by the Federation High Council, in order to kill or drive off the colonists who legally owned the land. This naturally attracted a large number of criminals and psychopaths [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness who now have to be disposed of]] before law and order can be reintroduced, so they're being used as bounty hunters to [[WantedDeadOrAlive catch or kill]] their fellow lawbreakers. Our rebel anti-heroes are not pleased to hear that Blake, ostensibly their leader but who's been [[PutOnABus missing for the past couple of seasons]], is now [[TookALevelInJerkass working as one of these bounty hunters]]. [[spoiler:It turns out he's secretly recruiting another rebel force from among the criminals he's capturing.]]

The Bounty Hunter is increasingly popular in SpeculativeFiction ever since [[Franchise/StarWars Boba Fett]] made it cool. It helps that space is thought of as ''another'' [[TheFinalFrontier "frontier"]], and Western tropes [[SpaceWestern go well with science fiction]]. And since it's so cool, most often bounty hunters in fiction are depicted as extremely skilled individuals and will prove a challenge for the main characters unless they are either there just to show us how overpowered our hero is or if the bounty hunters are themselves the main character(s).

* 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 ''Series/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".
