The bounty hunter is one of the most diverse roless and depending on his choices (and his employers) 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.

* ''Literature/WaxAndWayne'': Wax was one of these when he went out to the Roughs. He called himself a "lawman for hire," and in his early years he was known for grabbing the most dangerous bounties off the board and coming back a few days later with the target tied up on his saddle. The truth is that in those early years, he was short on money, so he just grabbed the biggest bounties he could find. Either way, he did such a good job that when the sheriff of Weathering eventually retired, he gave Wax his badge.

** Especially since killing the bounty would mean the bail bondsmen wouldn't be getting their money back.

* As the series is a Western, bounty hunters often show up in ''ComicBook/TexWiller'', with more than a few forcing confessions out of their quarries (in case they're just suspects) and, in at least one occasion, using the body of some random man to try and claim a bounty on another criminal.

* ''[[VideoGame/LegendOfLegaia Legaia II: Duel Saga]]'' features a Hunter's Guild which the player can access about halfway through the game. Though some of the requests are more reminiscent of {{FetchQuest}}s, the majority present marks that the party must track down and eradicate.

* Steve [=McQueen=] plays the story of a bounty hunter in ''Film/1980TheHunter'' where he gives Levar Burton, a fugitive who can't believe the guy can just up and grab him off the street, a copy of the quote from the U.S. Supreme Court decision in ''Taylor v. Taintor'' (please see the [[Quotes/BountyHunter quotes page]]), which Burton incredulously reads out loud. The movie is about a real-life bounty hunter, Ralph "Papa" Thorson (who can be seen in a cameo serving Steve [=McQueen=] a beer).
