* Leonard Smalls, the Lone Biker of the Apocalypse, from ''RaisingArizona''.
* The Coen brothers seem to like stories with guys like this. My first thought was Anton from ''NoCountryForOldMen''.
* Joe Lefors in ''ButchCassidyAndTheSundanceKid''. So mysterious, he's never even properly seen in the film. Butch and Sundance see him once from a distance of a mile or more, then later on see someone they assume is him from behind, although it's not clear if it's really Lefors or just paranoia on their part. When Butch and Sundance were at night and planted a diversion for Lefor's men to split up and so trick them, they fall... for almost a minute. Then they resume their persecution. Those guys were scary.
