* Japanese western ''Film/SukiyakiWesternDjango'' has Ruriko, the village's local store owner and all-round [[CoolOldLady cool old lady]]. She is really the legendary (and [[TheDreaded dreaded]]) Bloody Benten, a [[RetiredBadass retired gunfighter]] and [[LadyOfWar warlord]] that terrorized the west in her glory days.
-->'''Ringo:''' ''(on the Bloody Benten)'' "When this doubly talented goddess used to play music she would hold her instruments in both hands. But when she was on the warpath she held weapons...in ''eight'' hands! [...] And everything in her way got stained red! They dubbed her...Bloody Benten!"

* Borderline: Creator/ClintEastwood in ''Film/PaleRider.'' Yes, his guns were in storage while he acted as a priest, but that might have been more of a vacation than a retirement. The whole movie is meant to play him up as supernatural, not merely human. WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic?

A special case is when somebody who is already established in the town turns out to actually be a Retired Gunfighter, in this case he comes as a complete surprise to the villain- might be used as a supporter of TheHero or a mentor to the YoungGun. He can also simply be a surprise hero, masquerading as a MeekTownsman until the villain shows up. Often his family and friends are surprised as they didn't know he was a gunfighter. If a major hero is pointedly identified as never carrying a gun, don't be surprised if he turns out to be a Retired Gunfighter.
