* 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.

Successful ninja almost invariably have somebody who will put a bounty on their head, be it the legitimate government of a rival nation or a criminal organization. And capturing criminals is one of the many missions that a ninja could be hired for.

* 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".

* Abe Presley of ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}''. Played differently than usual as he doesn't really care for bounty hunting, considering it something that you do because you don't have many other options. On the other hand, he does have a healthy respect for the money it can bring.

* ''VideoGame/{{Metroid}}'' series heroine Samus Aran is usually described as a bounty hunter, although "mercenary" would probably be a more accurate job description, as her primary employer appears to be the [[TheFederation Galactic Federation]] and the jobs they assign her usually tend toward infiltrations, search-and-destroy, and other military operations. Other "bounty hunters" with vastly different motivations appear in the aptly named ''Metroid Prime: Hunters'' and ''Metroid Prime 3: Corruption''.

* Steve [=McQueen=] plays the story of a bounty hunter in ''Film/TheHunter'' 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).

* In ''Film/TheHatefulEight'', two main characters are bounty hunters with differing methods: Major Marquis Warren, a black former Union soldier who prefers to shoot first and turn in the bodies, and John "The Hangman" Ruth, who is famous for his insistence on delivering his prisoners alive so he can watch them stand trial and hang. When they meet each other at the start of the film in a snow-covered wilderness, Major Warren is sitting in the middle of the road on top of the frozen bodies of three dead criminals, while Ruth is riding in a stagecoach with his fugitive Daisy Domergue handcuffed to him to prevent her escape.
