The characters pertaining to the ''Die Hard'' film series.


[[folder:The [=McClane=] Family]]

!![=McClane=] Family
* BadassFamily: You might be a BigBad armed to the teeth and have a brilliant EvilPlan, but the moment a [=McClane=] gets involved, disaster will inevitably follow as they stare you down with more steely courage and determination than you can possibly counter.

!!John [=McClane=], Sr.
[[caption-width-right:350:''"Come out to the coast, we'll get together, have a few laughs..."'']]
->'''Played By:''' Creator/BruceWillis

A New York City Detective who, when visiting his estranged wife’s office building to reconcile with her, finds himself having to take on organised terrorists. He has a very abrasive personality, but more than makes up for it with determination and a sense of heroism.

* ActionHero: Whilst [=McClane's=] [[GuileHero ability to think on his feet]] is his strongest asset and he's not afraid to get his hands dirty.
* ActionSurvivor: From the second film onwards.
* TheAlcoholic: In the third film a character comments that John [=McClane=] is two steps away from being a full-blown alcoholic. [=McClane=] corrects him by [[SelfDeprecation holding up a single finger and saying "One step."]]
* AntiHero: He drinks, smokes, curses, bloodily dispatches his enemies, causes wide scale property damage and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking neglects his married life]].
* BadassGrandpa: From the fourth film onwards. His own son even lampshades this.
* BadassUnintentional: The essence of the character. What made the ''Die Hard'' series stand out over other action films, especially the ones from the 1980s, was that [=McClane=] is very vulnerable. [[spoiler:Just watch his reactions with Hans, especially when he tries to convince Ellis to say they didn't know each other just to save Ellis' life in the first movie, or trying his best to signal the plane that Stuart was gonna crash.]] He could also barely fight when badly hurt, and had to rely on hiding and [[CombatPragmatist dirty tactics]] to overcome his enemies and stay alive.
* BaldOfAwesome: From the fourth film onwards. The previous three films are [[JustForPun Balding Of Awesome]].
* BeingGoodSucks: He lives this trope. Over the course of all five movies, his wife has divorced him, his daughter is distant from him, he's completely estranged from his son [[spoiler:and when he tries to save him he ends up destroying a secret CIA mission that took ''three years'' to plan]], and he simply finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time at all times. His fellow officers don't seem to care much for him, he's nearly an alcoholic, he's bitter, alone, and depressed, yet time after time, he continues to save the day simply because he's "that guy", as he puts it in his own words.
* BornInTheWrongCentury: Present, but downplayed in the first film. He expresses confusion and frustration with digital technology, annoyance with LA's lack of traditional Christmas fare, and displays an almost-but-not-quite sexist attitude towards his wife following her career. He gets better by the second one (though he still gets confused by technology).
* CatchPhrase: "Yipee-ki-yay, motherfucker!"
* CarFu: In the fourth movie, he used a car to destroy a helicopter.
* TheChewToy: On top of the amount of abuse he takes in each film, his life in general just sucks.
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: Even if he doesn't like it, but in a world filled with terrorists, [[PoliceAreUseless incompetent cops]] and [[InnocentBystanders innocent victims]], someone has to be the hero.
* CombatPragmatist: He's not above putting hairspray in your eyes, for example.
* CoolOldGuy: From the fourth film onwards.
* CowboyCop: In the first film, the first mook he kills tells him that he won't hurt him because there are rules for cops. He states that his captain keeps telling him that and proceeds to PistolWhip the mook. Hans calls [=McClane=] out on his behavoir, and then the [[DiscussedTrope discussion turns to cowboys in movies]], leading to the CatchPhrase.
* DeadpanSnarker: A strong trait of his.
* DefectiveDetective: For John saving the day is much easier than saving a marriage.
* DentedIron: Throughout the films, the injuries he takes leave him battered, bruised and bleeding. This is particularly notable in the first film, especially since he's barefoot for the entirety of the hostage situation.
* DestructiveSaviour: Sorry, Washington DC and Moscow. Hope you have [=McClane=] insurance.
* {{Determinator}}: A TropeCodifier for the non-invincible action movie hero who has to [[EarnYourHappyEnding Earn His Happy Ending]]. In the first film, he gets beat up, shot at, nearly blown up, jumps himself off a building and crashes through a glass window, his feet get lacerated, and he eventually gets shot in the shoulder. This does not stop him. The third film has him getting pistol-whipped, blown up, beaten, drowned, shot at, beaten, and blown up ''again''. This makes him angry. In the fourth film, he is shot at, blown up, shot at some more, thrown out of a car, beaten up by a DarkActionGirl, dropped down an elevator shaft, frozen, beat up again, shot at ''by a jet fighter'', shot, and then ''shoots himself''. He doesn't give up at any point.
* ExperiencedProtagonist: John [=McClane=] is a seasoned New York cop. When he's first introduced, he states that he's already been a cop for eleven years.
* GeniusBruiser: He's an excellent detective, and a devil in a fight.
* GoodIsNotNice: Rather downplayed in the first 3 films in that his behavior's still well-meaning and heroic, just that his actions on occasion can be more violent than necessary.
* GrumpyOldMan: As of the fourth movie.
* GuileHero: His ability to think on his feet, adapt to his environment, and play mindgames with his opponents is what keeps him in the game.
** In the book, hero Lelend is even more so. For example, he sends down the corpse with the message "Now '''we''' have a machine gun" to make Gruber think there's more than one enemy.
* TheHero: Despite being an AntiHero, a major part of [=McClane's=] character is that he's less interested in defeating his opponents than protecting innocent people and preventing major disasters. He repeatedly gives his opponents chances to surrender, and wants the LAPD to take over and find a solution to the conflict that won't end with a pile of bodies. He only takes action when there are no other options.
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: He gives a lengthy speech about it to Farell in the fourth movie (see below) .
* HonorBeforeReason: He'll often turn down bribes and blackmail, saving the day instead.
* HeartbrokenBadass: He still loves Holly, even if they are not married anymore. It becomes a factor in ''With a Vengeance'' where he wants to get back with his wife, only for work to get in the way.
* {{Hypocrite}}: To an extent, he smokes, but tells other people that smoking is bad for you.
* IconicOutfit: The singlet. Definitely the singlet. Even in ''Die Hard 2'', in the snow, he's still just wearing a singlet under his parka.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Down to his CombatPragmatist tendencies, he'll use plenty of {{Improvised Weapon}}s to get the upper hand, including chairs, computer monitors, rolls of wrapping tape, fire extinguishers, hairspray, cars, chains and whatever else comes to hand.
* IndyPloy: Most of his "plans" are these.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Particularly in the fourth film.
* KnightInSourArmor: He may be tired, but what matters is that he still ''cares''.
** He even gives a trope-defining little speech in the fourth movie:
-->'''John [=McClane=]:''' You know what you get for being a hero? Nothin'. You get shot at. You get a little pat on the back, blah, blah, blah, attaboy. You get divorced. Your wife can't remember your last name. Your kids don't want to talk to you. You get to eat a lot of meals by yourself. Trust me, kid, nobody wants to be that guy.
-->'''Matt Farrell:''' Then why you doing this?\\
'''John [=McClane=]:''' [[SamaritanSyndrome Because there's nobody else to do it right now]], that's why. Believe me, if there were somebody else to do it, I'd let them do it, but there's not. So we're doing it.
* LoveCannotOvercome: John and Holly clearly care about each other, but their marriage is already strained in the first movie. While Film/DieHard ends with them back together, ultimately their relationship can't survive John's ChronicHeroSyndrome. They're officially separated by movie three and divorced by movie four, adding to John's KnightInSourArmor bitterness.
* MacGyvering: His ability to create makeshift gadgets to save the day would make the TropeNamer himself proud.
* MadeOfIron: Over the course of each ''Die Hard'' movie John [=McClane=] takes a ''lot'' of physical abuse, but he still manages to keep fighting.
* ManlyTears: When he fails to save a plane full of innocents from being murdered in ''Die Harder.''
* MotivationalLie: Cleverly uses one to get Zeus to help him in the 3rd movie.
* MrFanservice: Many female audiences surely remember his famous WalkingShirtlessScene from the first movie.
* MutilationConga: It seems like each movie is just an excuse to put [=McClane=] through one of these. In the first movie alone, he gets beaten up, falls down a flight of stairs, runs over broken glass barefoot, gets beaten up again, is shot in the shoulder, jumps off a roof with a firehose tied around his waist, crashes through a window, almost gets dragged back out of the window by the fire hose, and jumps into a water fountain to avoid an exploding helicopter. He's fine by the next Christmas.
* OneManArmy: [[TropesAreTools Done very well in the first film,]] where he compensates for being outnumbered and outgunned by using hit-and-run tactics, psychological warfare, and crafty thinking to save the day. Notably, when he is present at Joe Takagi's death, he doesn't take the opportunity to charge in like a regular ActionHero because he notes that if he did so, he'd be dead too. It's played much straighter in the other films, however.
* PapaWolf: Despite his strained relationship with both his children, he would go to great lengths to save them.
* PermaStubble: In the third movie, because he was pulled out of bed while still hungover from a night of hard drinking.
** 4th movie as well (he was up all night borderline stalking his daughter, and then had to go all the way from NYC to DC).
* RightManInTheWrongPlace: He was just there for a party and turned out to be the guy made to seriously derail a perfectly good plan.
* ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules:
-->'''Simon''': John. In the back of the truck you are driving, there is $13 billion worth in gold bullion. I wonder if a deal would be out of the question?\\
'''John''': Yeah, I got a deal for you: Crawl out from under that rock you hiding under and I'll drive this truck up your ass.
* SelfDeprecation: Many of his stings. Sometimes, as he's talking to himself. ("Oh, John. What the fuck are you doing?")
* SherlockScan: He is able to deduce quite a bit about the {{Mooks}} inside the office just by picking up on subtle clues in their attire and actions.
* SirSwearsALot: Outside of his catchphrase, he spends a lot of time cursing, blaspheming, and insulting people. Oddly enough, it seems to be a JustifiedTrope - he's only vulgar during high stress crisis situations, and seems reasonably soft spoken when off duty.
* SleevesAreForWimps: His IconicOutfit is a singlet and slacks. Shoes are optional.
* SmokingIsCool: He smokes a pack by himself in the first film, which takes place over the course of a few hours. He's also a grade a badass.
* TheSnarkKnight: A really good snarker, and a lot of it is at himself. He fits.
* SnarkToSnarkCombat: Whenever John meets someone who is snarkier then he is, there's bound to be some of them.
* SupportingProtagonist: Becomes this in ''Film/AGoodDayToDieHard'', as the movie seems to focus more on Jack and his mission to bring down Chagarin [[spoiler:and later Komarov.]]
* TheSouthpaw: Since Bruce Willis is left handed, so is he. Every single VideoGame adaptation of ''Die Hard'', barring ''Die Hard: Nakatomi Plaza'', tends to forget this, though.
* TaughtByExperience: AllThereInTheManual with regard to his hand to hand combat skills. A throwaway stage direction in his fight against Karl describes [=McClane=] as bringing "everything from the street."
* TookALevelInJerkass: He's grumpier in the fourth movie, but still a good man underneath. {{Justified|Trope}} because he ''was'' very alienated from loved ones during the time, so it might have been somewhat understandable.
* WouldHitAGirl: With his fists, with a computer monitor, with a car...

!!Holly Gennero/[=McClane=]
->'''Played By:''' Bonnie Bedelia

John [=McClane’s=] estranged wife. A hard working businesswoman who cares deeply for John and her children despite the separation.

* EightiesHair: Got a typical 80s perm.
* AdaptationalHeroism: In the novel the first film is based on, Holly is an unpleasant person who cheats on her husband with Ellis and helped fund a hostile military takeover in Chile, killing hundreds of innocents. She's nowhere near as awful in the movies.
* DamselOutOfDistress: While she can't join the fight with her husband, she is the one person who is able to reliably get a rise out of Hans Gruber repeatedly. Furthermore, she is able to negotiate with him on behalf of her coworkers and does everything she can to hide her relationship with John for as long as she can to avoid complicating his fight with Gruber's gang.
** In ''Film/DieHard2'', she is the only one able to shut Thorton up when he is recklessly creating a panic with his news story.
* DefiantCaptive: While she is held hostage like her co-workers, she doesn't hesitate to confront Hans and insult him when she needs to help one of her co-workers. [[spoiler:Even when Hans finds out she is married to John, and she finds herself in real danger, she doesn't hesistate to insult him]].
* LoveCannotOvercome: John and Holly clearly care about each other, but their marriage is already strained in the first movie. While ''Film/DieHard'' ends with them back together, ultimately their relationship can't survive John's ChronicHeroSyndrome. Before movie three Holly leaves John, and by movie four they're long divorced.
* MarriedToTheJob: Moved to the west coast for the sake of her career while John stayed in New York.
* YouAreInCommandNow: She winds up being the hostage negotiating with the terrorists after [[spoiler:Takagi is killed]].
-->'''Holly:''' I have a request.\\
'''Hans:''' What idiot put you in charge?\\
'''Holly:''' You did. When you murdered my boss. Now everybody's looking to me. Personally, I'd pass on the job. I don't enjoy being this close to you.

!!Lucy Gennero/[=McClane=]
->'''Played By:''' Creator/MaryElizabethWinstead

The daughter of John and Holly [=McClane=].

* AscendedExtra: Small role in the first Die Hard, turns out to have a major one in the fourth one.
* DefiantCaptive: While Gabriel still kidnaps her, Lucy isn't about to get all upset about it.
-->'''Lucy''': (over the phone as Gabriel's forcing her to beg for her life): Daddy? [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome There's only five of them now]].
* DemotedToExtra: In the fifth film, where her brother was the one that was taking stage. She only appears taking John to the airport, talking to him on the phone in the extended cut, and [[spoiler:picking both of the [=McClane=]s from the airport]].
* FieryRedHead: Red hair and a defiant, headstrong and snarky personality.
* [[LikeFatherLikeSon Like Father, Like Daughter]]: Defiant, headstrong, snarky and very able to put a useful fight against her captors.
-->'''Matt''': Wow, I know that tone. It's just weird hearing it come from someone with... hair.
* RescueRomance: At the end, it looks like Lucy and Matt are flirting ''hard'' with each other. This causes Lucy's dad even ''more'' pain than anything Gabriel inflicted on him...

!!John "Jack" [=McClane=] Jr.
->'''Played By:''' Jai Courtney

The son of John and Holly [=McClane=].

* ActionDuo: With his dad.
* AscendedExtra: Like his sister before him, small role in the first movie and gets to hang with his father in the fifth movie, taking down terrorists with him.
* BaldOfAwesome: Well, a really close buzz cut at least.
* CallingTheOldManOut: Considering he goes by "Jack" instead of "John Jr.", [[FirstNameBasis he calls his dad "John"]] and they were estranged for so long that [[spoiler:John had no idea where his son even ''was'' before learning he was in Russia, let alone being a CIA agent]].
* TheChessmaster: Compared to [[IndyPloy his father]], Jack's plan took three whole years to set up and he presumably accounted for everything... [[RightManInTheWrongPlace except his dad.]]
* ComplainingAboutRescuesTheyDontLike: Jack ''wanted'' to be arrested so he could infiltrate TheMafiya[=/=]terrorists/Mafiya-terrorists and then his estranged dad suddenly appears to rescues him with a ''hugely destructive three-way car chase'' (John (small truck) vs. Jack (large truck) vs. Mafiya (giant armored truck)).
* DeadpanSnarker: Gets it from his dad.
-->'''John:''' Need a hug?\\
'''Jack:''' We're not really a hugging family.\\
'''John:''' Damn straight.
* {{Foil}}: The HBO making-of seems to indicate that he is -- or wants to be -- TheChessmaster to John's IndyPloy master since [[spoiler:he's a CIA agent who deliberately puts himself in dangerous situations, is described as "by-the-book", and his secret mission took three years to set up]].
* LikeFatherLikeSon: It's pretty clear he's just as badass as his dad.
-->'''Jack''': [[ChronicHeroSyndrome Someone's gotta stop him.]]\\
'''John''': Atta boy.

[[folder:Recurring Characters]]
!!Al Powell
->'''Played By:''' Reginald [=VelJohnson=]

A Los Angeles beat cop who becomes [=McClane’s=] only ally outside the building in the original ''Die Hard''. He reprises the role for the second film for a short appearance.

* TheAtoner: Powell shot a 13-year-old kid who was holding a realistic-looking toy gun. The guilt he feels over the incident causes him to believe that he'll never again be able to pull his gun on somebody. [[spoiler:Thankfully, he proves himself wrong by drawing his gun and killing a crook who is about to kill [=McClane=] at the very end of the first film.]]
* BaldOfAwesome: Though he isn't fully bald.
* BatmanGrabsAGun: He has no stomach for using his sidearm in the first film, thanks to shooting a young boy with a toy gun. In the end, he ends up shooting [[DragonTheirFeet Karl]] before he can take out John.
* BlackBestFriend: Despite not meeting each other before the end of the first film, he's John's only trustworthy helper and source of moral support outside the Nakatomi Plaza. Not as big a role in the second, although he is still John's best friend.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Powell is never seen or mentioned again after the second film.
* DeadpanSnarker: He gives his superior a hard time during the Nakatomi crisis due to Robinson's general incompetence. The best line was an ad lib when Robinson is trying to look professional for the FBI agents that arrived on the scene.
-->'''Powell:''' Need a breath mint?\\
''[Robinson gives him a DeathGlare]''
* DeskJockey: [=McClane=] and Powell have a conversation that jokingly derides desk jockey cops, up until Powell reveals why he's now a desk jockey instead of patrolling the streets. This is because Powell made the horrible mistake of [[ShootHimHeHasAWallet shooting a kid with a fake gun]]. [[LetsGetDangerous He still proves he can get the job done]] when [[TheDragon Karl]] [[DragonTheirFeet comes back from the dead for one last shot at McClane]].
* DonutMessWithACop: Twinkies for a change. Though he claims they're for his pregnant wife.
* MyGreatestFailure: Accidentally shooting a kid because he mistakenly believed he had a gun.
* OnlySaneMan: He's the only LAPD cop who realizes what's happening.
* ShootHimHeHasAWallet: Provides the page quote. He accidentally killed a 13-year-old who had a toy ray gun, which got him relegated to beat duty.

!!Richard '[[ADickInName Dick]]' Thornberg
->'''Played By:''' Creator/WilliamAtherton

A sleazy reporter that hounds the [=McClane=] family in the first two movies.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Last seen lying in the snow on a Dulles runway unable to stand after being tazed during the finale of the second movie.
* {{Determinator}}: He's at least determined in getting news stories on the air, even though he's completely relentless and unethical about it.
* EntitledBastard: He expects special treatment on a plane after doing a news story on the declining quality of airline service.
* EvilRedhead: He isn't the villain but his actions in both films, especially the second goes from just unethical to outright malicious.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: Averted. He was crying as the plane he was residing in with Mrs. [=McClane=] was preparing to crash land since they had no more fuel left in their tanks. (Notably, he was the only one shown crying.)
* HateSink: The villains are usually cool, competent or have [[PetTheDog redeeming features]]. Richard is a [[{{Pun}} dick]] through and through and isn't even played for laughs.
* {{Jerkass}}: Is obsessed with his job, insults his co-workers, is generally rude towards people, and doesn’t care if his actions cause harm or get other people in trouble.
* LaserGuidedKarma: He deserves all the things that happen to him, be it a punch in the face or an electroshock.
* SlimeBall: He is deliberately portrayed as a total sleazeball. He seems to have no moral or ethical compass, breaking many ethical journalism guidelines such as the hacking of John's files, forcing his way into their family home, and broadcasting their children without consent. In fact, his Editor doesn't even seem to like him.
* StrawmanNewsMedia: He's a parody of over-the-top news reporters that hound people for dramatic news stories without regards of privacy, ethics or safety.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: His entire purpose in both films he appears in is to unintentionally cause trouble. In the first film, he makes the villains aware that the woman they've negotiated with is John's wife, thus getting a key hostage. In the second film he causes a massive panic in the airport, most likely injuring and possibly killing many people, as well as hampering John's efforts against the terrorists.

[[folder:Die Hard]]
!!Hans Gruber
[[caption-width-right:350:''"I am '''an exceptional''' thief, Mrs. [=McClane=]. And since I'm moving up to kidnapping, you should be more polite."'']]
->'''Played By:''' Creator/AlanRickman

* AxCrazy: Downplayed, but definitely there. Hans isn't joking around when he makes demands, he '''will''' kill you if you don't do as he asks.
* BadassInANiceSuit: Very well dressed. He even identifies Takagi's suit as (the fictional) John Phillips, London.
* BatmanGambit: He was able to anticipate the LAPD and FBI's response to him. The only thing he couldn't count on was a determined cop.
* BeardOfEvil: Bearded and decidedly evil.
* BerserkButton: Holly gets a rise out of him by pointing out that for all his posturing and delusions of grandeur, all he's doing is (trying) to steal some money.
* BigBad: The most memorable one for the ''Die Hard'' franchise. AFI agrees, ranking him #46 among its "Villains".
* BondVillainStupidity: He only slips into this at the ''very'' end. He even inverts this, chastising Karl for trying to kill [=McClane=] rather than lock him in the ventilation shaft.
* BriefAccentImitation: He pretends to be an American hostage to trick John.
* TheChessmaster: He set a new standard for intelligent villains when the film first came out. He planned for just about everything, and almost anything that could have been considered a problem was just factored into the overall plan, [[spoiler:such as the FBI responding to a terrorist attack instead of a robbery]]. John [=McClane=] was pretty much the only thing he hadn't planned on.
* ColdHam: It's Alan Rickman. Most of his dialogue is bombastically understated.
* CulturedBadass: Compares himself with UsefulNotes/AlexanderTheGreat, after taking over the Nakatomi Building.
-->'''Hans:''' And when Alexander saw the breadth of his domain he wept, for there were [[VictoryIsBoring no more worlds to conquer]]... The benefits of a classical education.
** Humorously, the quote is actually "Alexander of Macedon, who, upon hearing that there were other worlds, wept that he had not yet conquered ''one''", which is more accurate to [[SmallNameBigEgo his posturing]].
* DeadpanSnarker: Emphasis on deadpan.
-->'''Hans:''' Alas, your Mr. Takagi did not see it that way... so he won't be joining us for the rest of his life.
* DiabolicalMastermind: Planned the (almost) perfect heist.
* DisneyVillainDeath: Attempts to drag Holly down with him by grabbing her watch after he is shot, but [=McClane=] unclasps it, and Hans plummets to his death.
* EvilGenius: A pretty intelligent bastard.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Rickman's bass voice is put to great use.
* FacialDialogue: Beautifully expresses a great deal of disgust and contempt without words.
* FauxAffablyEvil: He's WickedCultured, and displays a modicum of politeness towards the hostages. However, if he doesn't get his way, he feels no revulsion towards killing those in his way without batting an eye. He's rather blase about killing Takagi and Ellis, and he's rather angered when Holly calls him a "common thief."
-->'''Hans''' (almost snarling): I am an ''exceptional'' thief.
* KickTheDog:
** Killing Takagi for not knowing the password and codes.
** And of course, [[spoiler:his [[KillEmAll actual plan]] for the hostages...]]
* KickTheSonOfABitch: His murders of Ellis, [[ThoseTwoGuys Big Johnson and Little Johnson]], given that the former was a coke-snorting jackass who sold out McLane, while the latter two were {{Smug Snake}}'s who inadvertently helped Hans further his plans and were perfectly okay with getting potentially getting some hostages killed.
* ManOfWealthAndTaste: His henchmen are all extremely well-dressed, but he takes it up a notch with a double-breasted suit & tie.
* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: His response to being shot and falling through a sheet of glass is mild annoyance. Becomes OhCrap when he's dropped 30+ stories to his death.
* MasterActor: When he encounters [=McClane=] while checking the explosives on the roof, he convincingly acts the part of an escaped hostage, even faking an American accent. [[spoiler:Subverted when [=McClane=] isn't fooled and gives him an unloaded gun.]]
* NearVillainVictory: Apart from a few hiccups, his heist ''almost'' goes to plan [[spoiler:until [=McClane=] chases the hostages downstairs from the roof.]]
* TheNicknamer: Calls [=McClane=] "[[AmericansAreCowboys Mr. Cowboy]]" until he learns his real name.
* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: Lampshaded. He went to school in England, so his accent must have localized.
* PetTheDog: Allowing a couch to be moved out to the lobby so that the very pregnant woman could sit on it. [[spoiler:But then he sends everybody onto the roof that's [[BaitTheDog wired with explosives]]]].
* PredecessorVillain: To [[spoiler:his brother]] Simon in the third film.
* RasputinianDeath: He's shot in the gut, crashes through a window, plummets 30 stories, and lands on his head.
* SharpDressedMan: Hans notices in the elevator how nice Mr. Takagi's suit is:
--> '''Hans''': Nice suit... John Phillips, London. I have two myself. Rumor has it Arafat buys his there.
* SoftSpokenSadist: He never raises his voice when speaking to the hostages, which makes him more sinister.
* TheSociopath: [[spoiler:His EvilPlan includes sending innocent hostages to the roof to be killed in an explosion whilst escaping in the confusion]].
* SurroundedByIdiots: Hans is (in his own words) an exceptional thief, but his henchman less so. Karl and Marco both pass up excellent chances to kill [=McClane=] (Karl due to it being [[ItsPersonal personal]] and Marco due to BondVillainStupidity), which later causes the whole plan to become undone.
* TakingYouWithMe: Defied by [=McClane=]. Hans attempts to drag Holly down with him by grabbing her watch after he is shot, but [=McClane=] unclasps it, and Hans plummets to his death.
* WeaponOfChoice: A Heckler and Koch [=P7M13=] pistol.
* {{Western Terrorist|s}}: [[spoiler:Subverted, his group use this as a cover for committing straightforward crimes, though Gruber is a former terrorist himself. Presumably, he and the others have lost their radical ideals and now just want to make a heap of money and retire]].
* WickedCultured: He lampshades this by quoting Plutarch's "Life of Alexander" and then comments, "Benefits of a classical education."
** Of course, he not only gets the quote wrong, but seems to miss the point of it being that Alexander realized he'd ''failed'' to conquer the world, making his comparison to Alexander of Macedon a bit of {{Foreshadowing}} in addition to [[SmallNameBigEgo remarkably pretentious.]]
* WorthyOpponent: Is one of the few terrorists who takes [=McClane=] seriously. Also extends to a meta level, as fans note that Hans is the series' best villain.
* XanatosSpeedChess: As soon as he runs into John [=McClane=], he's able to think on the spot to fake an American accent and pretend he's a hostage. During his time with John, he's very observant and notices he's going barefoot. In their next shootout he takes advantage of this by having his men fire on the glass around where John is taking cover, injuring him and causing him to drop the bag with the detonator charges Hans needed.

->'''Played By:''' Alexander Godunov

* AxCrazy: "I want blood!"
* BondVillainStupidity: See below. He has the drop on [=McClane=] and a rifle to his head, and has made it clear that he just wants [=McClane=] dead. Rather than blow his head off, Karl ''lets [=McClane=] knock his gun away'', leading to a fistfight [[spoiler:which Karl loses. Bonus points - if Karl had just shot [=McClane=] then and there, their plan to blow the hostages would've worked, and he and the remaining thieves would've been able to split $640 million between the six of them.]] Whoops. This is probably justified through ItsPersonal.
* ClickHello: Puts his gun to [=McClane=]'s cheek when the latter realizes that the roof is [[spoiler:wired with explosives.]]
* ChainsawGood: Whips out a chainsaw to cut the phone lines while Tony is disabling them.
* CombatPragmatist: Grabs [=McClane=]'s pistol during their fight and shoots him in the shoulder with it.
* CoolGun: His Steyr AUG, a stark contrast to the [=MP5s=] used by the rest of his team.
* DarkIsEvil: Wears a black jumpsuit.
* {{Determinator}}: He'll stop at nothing to kill John.
* TheDragon: Hans' right hand man and the biggest threat to [=McClane=].
* DragonTheirFeet: Survives [[spoiler:after his boss's death to make one last attempt on [=McClane's=] life. He's subsequently killed by Powell.]]
* DragonWithAnAgenda: He's deeply affected when [=McClane=] kills his brother Tony and subsequently spends the rest of the film hell-bent on killing [=McClane=].
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He's deeply affected by the death of his [[BigBrotherInstinct younger brother Tony]] and subsequently spends the rest of the film [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge hell-bent on killing]] [=McClane=].
* EvilCounterpart: Can be seen as one to John. Both are {{Determinator}}s who are MadeOfIron who would do anything for their loved ones.
* FlippingTheTable: When he hears his brother Tony is dead, he flips the desk in Holly's office.
* GeniusBruiser: Karl may be impulsive, but he's not stupid. He almost catches [=McClane=] several times and gets the drop on him before their fight, throwing John's pistol away and crushing the radio. He also predicts that [=McClane=] will be trouble and winds up being proven right when the cop tries to warn the police and steals Heinrich's bag, not to mention killing other terrorists left and right.
* GrumpyBear: Even before his brother gets killed, he comes off as very sullen.
* HotBlooded: ''And then some''!
* ItsPersonalWithTheDragon: "We are both professionals. This is personal."
* LeaveHimToMe: (To Franco and Fritz): "No one kills him but me."
* MadeOfIron: He can survive a ''ton'' of punishment.
* RedOniBlueOni: Is shown to be thuggish and impulsive while Tony is calm and crafty; early on, Tony attempts to disable the phone lines electronically but Karl simply takes a chainsaw and cuts through the lines instead.
* SiblingYinYang: He and his brother Tony. The former is hot blooded and strong, the latter is calm and craftier (though taller).
* SlasherSmile: The face he makes when he traps John's arm, punches him and starts kicking him around the room.
* UnstoppableRage: By the end of the film, [[spoiler:he has all but given up trying to evade capture by the police and is perfectly willing to open fire on [=McClane=] in front of dozens witnesses, including police officers, in a last ditch effort to avenge his boss and brother (and the botched robbery).]]
* VillainousBreakdown: His brother's death causes Karl to go off the deep end. Also see UnstoppableRage above.
* WeaponOfChoice: A Steyr [=AUG=] assault rifle and Walther [=PPK=] pistol. He also uses flash grenades.

!!Harry Ellis
->'''Played By:''' Hart Boecher

* AnnoyingLaugh: Lets out a memorable one when Takagi makes a WWII joke.
* AssholeVictim: He betrays John to the terrorists. Nonetheless John pleads for Ellis' life and is anguished when he is killed by Gruber.
* BoomHeadshot: Courtesy of Hans.
* DrugsAreBad: He’s seen snorting cocaine at least twice. The last is when he decides to negotiate with Hans. [[BoomHeadshot It doesn't end well]].
* {{Foil}}: To John. He's after Holly and incredibly sleazy about it while John is awkwardly trying to salvage his marriage. [[WrongGenreSavvy He also thinks that the villains]] [[spoiler:actually are terrorists]] and he's the one able to defuse the situation while John is only making the situation worse. John on the other hand, [[GenreSavvy knows exactly what he is and what the villains are]].
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: One could argue he was trying to help his co-workers by getting John to surrender. Still didn't end well. He might have been fine had he told the villain the truth when things went South. Instead he committed to his lie and protected Holly.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler:Besides giving John’s name to Hans, Richard also gets the name and cause even more trouble afterward]].
* ShooOutTheClowns: After his death, the film becomes less humorous and a lot more tense.
* SmugSmiler: Is always smiling when he think he's got the upper hand. In fact, the last thing he's seen doing is smiling.
* SmugSnake: A sleazy scumbag trying to hit on Holly and is confident that the [[BigBad "Euro-trash"]] can be negotiated with.
* {{Slimeball}}: Comes across as this from the moment we meet him.
* TooDumbToLive: Yes, go to the dangerous terrorist leader who isn’t above casually executing hostages and try to sell out the guy you just met earlier who happens to be far more GenreSavvy on how hostage situations works.
* WrongGenreSavvy: He thinks he can negotiate with the BigBad (thinking he's a terrorist instead of pretending to be as such) and that John is a pesky wannabe hero making the situation worse.

->'''Played By:''' De'voreaux White

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Starts laughing when he hears John say "I'm not the one who just got buttfucked on national TV, Dwayne!"
* AlmightyJanitor: Argyle the limo driver takes out one of terrorists with nothing but his car and his fists. This technically means Argyle was more useful in aiding [=McClane=] in his fight against the terrorists then both the entire FBI and LAPD were (with the exception of Sgt Powell).
* CarFu: Uses the limo to crash into Theo's getaway car.
* TheDriver: Of the limo [=McClane=] rents.
* HeroicBystander: He's just a limo driver who's passive most of the film. He takes out Theo when he tries to escape.
* OneHitKO: How he then takes out Theo.
* UncleTomfoolery: At first, it led to a small FunnyBackgroundEvent moment when Powell's car is being shot up.

->'''Played By:''' Clarence Gilyard Jr.

* BlackAndNerdy: He's the team's upbeat and cheery hacker, he wears glasses, and doesn't have any combat skills.
* BlackDudeDiesFirst: Averted. He's the only terrorist with any meaningful screentime to survive the movie.
* TheCracker: He is a more realistic black hat: his main displays of cracking skill consist of tapping in to the building's camera system and guessing Takagi's password to defeat the first of [[spoiler:seven locks on the Nakatomi Corporation vault. To disable locks 2 through 6, he uses a big drill. He doesn't even know how to open the final electromagnetic time lock on the vault until he learns about Hans' gaming the FBI into shutting off the power to the entire city grid that the building is on, thus disabling the lock and giving them access to the vault]].
* DeadpanSnarker: Gives a running commentary of the police's efforts at breaking into the building.
-->'''Theo:''' ''[as an armored car tries to drive into the building]'' Looks like the police have themselves an RV.
* TheEvilGenius: The team's resident computer expert and responsible for breaking into the vault.
* MissionControl: Despite being in the field with everybody else, he still counts, since he spends most of his time away from the rest of the group trying to crack open the vault, and using the building's own security system to keep tabs on police movements outside.
* [[PerkyFemaleMinion Perky Male Minion]]: He's notably chatty and calm, even when the rest of the villains have all lost their [[FauxAffablyEvil affable façade]] due to [=McClane's=] interference. It probably helps that he's not on the front lines.
* SoleSurvivor: [[spoiler:The only terrorist with significant screentime (such as Hans, Karl, Eddie, Franco, and Fritz) to survive. He still gets punched out by Argyle, and was presumably arrested.]]

!!Joseph Yoshinobu "Joe" Takagi
->"''Hey we're flexible, Pearl Harbor didn't work out so we got you with tape decks.''"
-->'''Played By:''' James Shigeta

President of Nakatomi Trading.

* BaddieFlattery: On the receiving end. Hans Gruber compliments him on his nice John Phillips suit.
* BenevolentBoss: Throws his best employees a party and refuses to sell out his corporation. He was also the one that paid for the limo that brought John to Nakatomi towers and seems to get along fine with him. Killing him [[KickTheDog demonstrated how evil Hans was]].
** Holly quietly tries to stop him from stepping forward during the hostage-taking, as she does what she can to protect her boss.
* BoomHeadshot: Receives one from Hans when he doesn't give up the codes.
-->'''Hans:''' We do it the hard way.
* DefiantToTheEnd: After finding out Hans's true motives for holding up his tower, he flat out goads him into killing him.
-->'''Takagi:''' Get on a jet to Tokyo and ask the Chairman. I'm telling you, you're just going to have to kill me.
* JapanTakesOverTheWorld: Truly a man of his time. Born in Japan and raised in America, he was sent to an internment camp as a child during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII and likes to joke about Japan's economic dominance.
* SacrificialLamb: The big-shot of the Nakatomi building and a decent guy. He puts up some resistance and his death shows that the terrorists mean business.
* SharpDressedMan: Hans notices in the elevator how nice Mr. Takagi's suit is.

!!Johnson and Johnson

-->'''Big Johnson:''' Just like fuckin' Saigon, hey, Slick? \\
'''Little Johnson:''' I was in junior high, dickhead.

* ByTheBookCop: They follow procedure to the letter. Even if it means that the hostages might suffer. This is exploited by Hans.
* JurisdictionFriction: The LAPD are not particularly happy to see them, and even Powell warns them to no avail that the terrorists know what they're up to.
* FBIAgent: An agent and a special agent.
* KillItWithFire: Their chopper is caught in the explosion when Hans blows the roof, sending them and all aboard crashing down in a fiery inferno.
* MistakenForTerrorist: They mistake John [=McClane=] for a terrorist (he's actually trying to get the hostages to run back downstairs) and Big Johnson tries to snipe him. {{Justified|Trope}} because neither they nor any other law enforcement outside Nakatomi know who to look for, and [=McClane=] is [[NotHelpingYourCase firing his submachine gun willy-nilly to scare the hostages back downstairs]].
-->'''Big Johnson:''' Swing around again! I'll bag this little bastard.
* OneSteveLimit: A PlayedForLaughs {{aver|tedTrope}}sion. "Johnson and Johnson, no relation". Rather amusing given that one is white and the other is black.
-->'''Big Johnson:''' ''[over the phone]'' This is Agent Johnson... No, ''the other one''.
* PoliceAreUseless: Though they seem more capable than the local police, in the end they aren't much more effective.
* SaltAndPepper: Big Johnson is salt, Little Johnson is pepper.
* SmugSnake: Not nearly as good as they think they are. They act tough and badass, but they play right into Hans' hand.
* ThoseTwoGuys: They show up in the middle of the movie and mostly act as one character dropping some highly quotable dialogue.
* TriggerHappy: Hopelessly gung-ho.
-->'''Big Johnson:''' Figure we take out the terrorists. Lose 20, 25 percent of the hostages, tops.\\
'''Little Johnson:''' I can live with that.

->'''Played By''': Andreas Wisniewski

* BigNo: Delivers several shouts of "Nein!" when Karl pulls out the chainsaw to cut the phone lines.
* ClickHello: Ends up on the receiving end of [=McClane's=] Beretta [=92F=] like this.
* FourEyesZeroSoul: Wears a pair of glasses and is one of the bad guys.
* GeniusBruiser: Seems to be one of the brainier members of the terrorists, as he rejiggers the phone lines ([[SurroundedByIdiots and has to deal with Karl just taking out a chainsaw and nearly sawing them in half before he's finished]]) and shows a manipulative side as he tries to deal with the interfering John. However, in a physical contest, his grip is not much more feeble than his brother's.
* NeckSnap: [[spoiler:Pushed headfirst into the floor of the stairwell by [=McClane=], breaking his neck.]]
* PistolWhipping: After Tony tells John that there are rules for policemen, John starts off their fight by hitting Tony with his pistol, knocking his glasses off.
* SacrificialLamb: [[spoiler:For the terrorists, the first of the group to die.]]
* StuffedIntoTheFridge: [[spoiler:His body is sent down the elevator by John with the message "Now I have a machine gun. Ho-Ho-Ho."]]
* WeaponOfChoice: A [=HK94=] carbine with a shortened barrel and converted to full-auto as a stand-in [=MP5A3=] submachine gun.
* WrongGenreSavvy: See YouWouldntShootMe. He knows [[ByTheBookCop cops have rules]]. Too bad John is a CowboyCop protagonist. Ok, John doesn't shoot him, but he starts a fight that leads to Tony's death.
* YouWouldntShootMe: When John does a ClickHello.
-->'''John:''' Drop it, dickhead. It's the police.\\
'''Tony:''' You won't hurt me.\\
'''John:''' Oh yeah? Why not.\\
'''Tony:''' Because you're a policeman. There are rules for policemen.\\
'''John:''' Yeah. That's what my captain keeps telling me. ''[hits Tony, knocking his glasses off]''

!!Franco and Fritz
->'''Played By:''' Bruno Doyon (Franco), Hans Buhringer (Fritz)

* BearerOfBadNews: Fritz has to tell Karl his brother is dead.
* GrievousHarmWithABody: Indirectly. The glass raining down on Franco after he is killed gives Hans the idea to shoot out the rest of the glass partitions, as he knows John has no shoes.
-->'''Hans''': Shoot the glass!
* HellBentForLeather: Franco wears a leather jacket.
* LongHairedPrettyBoy: Fritz has long hair.
* {{Mauve Shirt}}s: They have the most screen time of the {{Mooks}}, much of it with Karl and chasing [=McClane=]. Franco even gets billing during the opening credits.
* NoKillLikeOverkill: [[spoiler:Fritz gets a good portion of a submachine gun emptied into his torso and Franco is shot messily in the legs, smashes his head into a glass partition, then has glass rained down upon him.]]
* OhCrap: Fritz does one when he finds Tony's body in the elevator.
* TheQuietOne: Franco has only two lines, though he [[NoIndoorVoice shouts both]].
* ThoseTwoGuys: With the exception of the [=SWAT=] assault attempt (Fritz is on the 35th floor helping James bring the missiles down to the third floor, while Franco is guarding the hostages on the 30th floor), they're always in the same scene together.
* WeaponOfChoice: Both carry a [=HK94=] carbine with a shortened barrel and converted to full-auto as a stand-in [=MP5A3=] submachine gun.

* NotSoAboveItAll: For all the atrocities he is committing under Hans Gruber's instruction, there is one thing [[EveryoneHasStandards he doesn't want anyone to see]]: snitching a candy bar.
* OhCrap: [[spoiler:When he opens the door to the rest of the building after bringing the hostages to the roof and finds himself on the business end of [=McClane=]'s pistol.]]
* TheQuietOne: Says very little during his time onscreen.

* WeaponOfChoice: A [=HK94=] carbine with a shortened barrel and converted to full-auto as a stand-in [=MP5A3=] submachine gun.

->'''Played By''': Lorenzo Caccialanza

* AllMenArePerverts: When the terrorists begin raiding the offices on the 30th floor, Marco is seen dragging a couple that was making out from one of the offices (the woman's breasts can be seen for several seconds). This also winds up being DistractedByTheSexy since [=McClane=] uses the woman's screams as a distraction to escape.
* CarCushion: [[spoiler:[=McClane=] throws his body 34 stories onto Al's car, causing another terrorist to attack Powell and forcing the officer to call for assistance.]]
* DeathByIrony: His most famous line is chastising [=McClane=] for not killing him earlier when he had the chance...which is exactly what [[spoiler:Marco spends his last moments doing: ''not'' killing John when he has the chance.]]
* FamousLastWords: "Next time you have a chance to kill someone, don't hesitate."

* DeathFromAbove: James and Alexander are killed when John drops a packet of poorly-prepped C4 down the elevator shaft.

* HellBentForLeather: James wears a brown leather jacket.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Alexander attacks Sgt. Powell, forcing the officer to call for assistance.

[[folder:Die Hard 2: Die Harder]]
!!Colonel Stuart
->'''Played By:''' Creator/WilliamSadler

* AFatherToHisMen: Despite being a [[TheSociopath sociopath]] who doesn't bat an eye crashing a plane full of people, he cares about his men to some extent. He's not happy when Miller returns without Cochrane and almost kills him over it. When John kills Stuart's men in the skywalk, this in turn leads to the aforementioned plane crashing.
* ArmiesAreEvil: He and his henchmen embodies the negative merciless attributes of the military.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: The only villainous leader in the franchise to qualify for this trope.
* AxCrazy: He is a SociopathicSoldier and a ColonelKilgore who loves the sounds and sights of screams of innocents and {{Gorn}} all over the place.
* BigBad: Of the second film.
* BloodKnight: The only time he loses his composure is during his fight with John on the plane's wing, where he puts on a SlasherSmile while attacking John with a knife, and letting loose an EvilLaugh when he has John on the ropes.
* BriefAccentImitation: While impersonating air traffic control [[spoiler:in order to crash the Windsor Air plane]], he speaks with a Southern accent.
* ColonelBadass: Leads his troops with military precision. Much like a typical villain in the franchise, he embodies EvilIsCool.
* ColonelKilgore: Coldly relishes in the bloodshed.
* DeathGlare: This seems to be his default expression. And it's nothing short of chilling.
* FauxAffablyEvil: He is polite towards [=McClane=] in some of their interactions and is quippy during their fight on the plane's wing.
* {{Fingore}}: During his fight with John, he stabs him in the shoulder, and John responds by biting off one of his fingers.
* KarmicDeath: Sending a plane full of innocents to their deaths is pretty unforgivable. So it's only fitting that he and his mooks are blown up on a plane.
* KnifeNut: Brings out a combat knife first against John, before the cop bites him.
* KnightOfCerebus: Not that the film wasn't already serious, but even Hans Gruber didn't murder a planeful of people just to prove a point. That Stuart managed this despite John's best attempts (and his NoHoldsBarredBeatdown, below) arguably qualify him for HeroKiller status.
* LackOfEmpathy: He kills a plane full of people on Christmas Eve and has zero remorse for it.
* LightningBruiser: He manages to outfight [=McClane=] at the end of the movie with some quick and hard hitting martial arts.
* NakedFirstImpression: His introductory scene had him practicing martial arts in the nude.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Beating [=McClane=] to a pulp and throwing him off the plane's wing in the finale. Of the series' Big Bads, he's the only one to physically beat the crap out of [=McClane=]. Too bad he didn't ''kill him'', because [=McClane=] ''still'' shrugged off the beating and blew up Stuart's plane.
* PreAssKickingOneLiner: "Okay, [=McClane=], time for the main event!"
* TheSociopath: The only villain in the franchise to murder ''children'', and feel nothing but ''[[{{Sadist}} cold satisfaction]]'' afterwards on top of that.
* SociopathicSoldier: He is a former Special Forces Colonel and TheSociopath.
* TheStoic: Not one time does he emote to anything. He always acts and speaks with a very stoic presence. And it makes him more terrifying.
* WeaponOfChoice: A Heckler & Koch [=MP5A5=] (distinguishable from the [=MP5A3=] by the three-round burst trigger grouping) submachine gun and a Glock 17 pistol.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Sees himself as a patriot doing whatever is necessary to combat communism and save those who would aid him in that fight.
* WouldHurtAChild: Would destroy an entire plane full of innocent men, women and children just to prove a point.

!!Major Grant
-> '''Played By: ''' John Amos

* EvilAllAlong: Came to the airport under the guise of a soldier with one full platoon trying to stop Stuart, but revealed half-way through the movie that he and the entire platoon were in on the plot with Stuart and Esperanza.
* FauxAffablyEvil: "Too bad [=McClane=], [[VillainRespect I kind of like you]]!"
* SlashedThroat: Does this to the young soldier who wasn't in on the plan.

* KillItWithFire: Dies in the plane explosion.
%%* TheGeneralissimo
* HandyCuffs: Esperanza uses his to strangle his guard on the plane to get access to his handcuff key.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: He's clearly based on Manuel Noriega, and bears a physical resemblance to UsefulNotes/FidelCastro.
* OnlyAFleshWound: Gets shot in the shoulder by John when he arrives.

!!Samantha Coleman
* IntrepidReporter: She is a refreshing change of pace from the opportunistic Thornberg. Although she initially annoys [=McClane=] with her questions, she helps John chase the villains in her news helicopter. The fact she is getting a a [[GoingForTheBigScoop spectacular exclusive]] of [=McClane=] stopping [[spoiler:Colonel Stuart]] doesn't hurt either as something she legitimately earned.

->'''Played By:''' Don Harvey

* ChekhovsGun: His [=MP5A3=] is taken by John during the snowmobile chase. John learns the hard way that Garber's gun is filled with blank rounds, which means that [[spoiler:the firefight was staged.]]
* GoodHairEvilHair: His hair is perpetually slicked back.
* KilledOffForReal: Killed by John during the snowmobile chase.
* NumberTwo: Colonel Stuart's second in command. He's not enough of a badass to be TheDragon.

* KilledOffForReal: Shot in the throat by John when Stuart goes to pick up Esperanza at the airport. It's quite bloodless.

* MauveShirt: Kahn manages to last all the way to the final confrontation with John before getting blown up in the plan explosion

* SacrificialLamb: The first of the terrorists to die.

->'''Played By:''' Creator/SamuelLJackson

* AccidentalMisnaming: "Why do you keep calling me Jésus?! Do I look Puerto Rican to you?"
* ActionDuo: With [=McClane=].
* AngryBlackMan: It might go without saying since he's being played by Samuel L Jackson.
* KnightInSourArmor: Zeus carries a grudge against white people and has a chip on his shoulder but still plays the hero.
* TheLancer: Works back-to-back with John, but [=McClane=] is still the hero of the story.
* MalcolmXerox: He definitely qualifies. In fact, Jackson researched the role to look and act exactly like UsefulNotes/MalcolmX himself. He gradually drifts into more sensible territory as the movie progresses, though.
* NobleBigot: Zeus' EstablishingCharacterMoment reveals he has a severe grudge against white people. He still saves John's life and teams up with him to defeat Simon.
* PapaWolf: When he finds out that the school bomb is planted in the same school his nephews attend, the first thing he does is threaten to shoot Simon.

!!Simon Peter Gruber

* TheChessmaster: Plays several sides and moves a lot of pieces to try to achieve his goals.
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Simon betrays his Middle Eastern clients by trying to keep the gold instead of blowing it up and then tries to maximise his share. He keeps at least some of his accomplices in the dark about the ultimate fate of the gold, and then kills them when they find out. In the alternate ending, he's killed his girlfriend as well a few months after the movie's over.
* CriminalMindGames: Subverted, his quests are all part of a misdirection.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: In spite of the money at stake, he will not murder children in cold blood for it. After all, "I'm a soldier, not a monster... though I sometimes work for monsters."
* EvilSoundsDeep: Like his brother.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: He gave [=McClane=] a bottle of aspirin, which gave him the location of their hideout in the climax.
* LargeHam: Like [[Disney/TheLionKing Scar]] in the previous year, Creator/JeremyIrons seems like he has a lot of fun playing charming and devious villains.
* LaughablyEvil: His brother in the first film has shades of this (mostly due to being a DeadpanSnarker) though Simon is ultimately more humorous.
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[PublicDomainSoundtrack "When Johnny Comes Marching Home"]] is used as Simon's theme, as well as pretty much the main theme of the movie itself. The most notable scene where it plays is when he's robbing the Federal Reserve Bank.
* NobleDemon: The kind of leader a band of warriors have is reflected in their behavior, for unlike most moustache-twirling one-dimensional villains, Simon's men actually go out of their way to make sure children will not be hurt in their operations, and actually bother to ''mourn'' the losses of their brothers before rejoicing in their ill-gotten money. Goes hand-in-hand with EvenEvilHasStandards above.
* NotSoDifferent: Both he and [=McClane=] are suffering from headaches (no thanks to each other) throughout the movie.
* PorkyPigPronunciation: Though out the film, Simon seemed to have a stutter of sorts when talking over the phone when "pushed". However, in the scenes when he wasn't speaking to the NYPD, he talks and speaks perfectly fine and fakes a stutter while calling New York police gullible, indicating it was just a ruse.
* StrongerSibling: Hans' older, smarter brother.
* WouldNotHurtAChild: An honorable and humane quality that sets Simon apart from normal Hollywood villains such as Colonel Stuart above.

%%* TheBaroness
* DarkActionGirl: Evil, female and deadly.
%%* DarkMistress
* TheDragon: Works at the main muscle for Simon.
* FemmeFatale: Sexy and absolutely dangerous.
* KnifeNut: Slices up a security guard with a fillet knife.
%%* TheVamp
* TheVoiceless: The original ending to the movie suggests she may be mute, but in the final cut she does yell when shooting at [=McClane=]. She was originally supposed to have a speaking part in the film; however, it was decided that her character would be silent, since it made her appear much more imposing and lethal. This makes the scene where she slices one of the Federal Reserve guards to death much more powerful.

!! Mathias Targo
->'''Played By:''' Nicholas Wyman

* BombThrowingAnarchist: Unlike most of Simon's troops, he actually did seek to "level the economic playing field" of the world. He is quite angry when he finds out that Simon is OnlyInItForTheMoney.
* TheDragon: Shares this role with Katya, but he gets the big fight with [=McClane=].
* MadeOfIron: [=McClane=] stabs a big sharp piece of metal into his leg and it does nothing to him.

!!Matt Farrell
->'''Played By:''' Creator/JustinLong

* DeadpanSnarker: [=McClane=]'s humor is contagious even for his sidekicks.
* GenreSavvy: Refuses to comply with Gabriel's demands even at gunpoint, knowing Gabriel will kill him regardless. It's only when he puts the gun on Lucy that he finally gives in.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He has some anti social behaviors and is not happy to be dragged along in the adventure but he ends up having the best of intentions.
* TheLancer: Acts as John's partner and has a contrasting skill set to his.
* MotorMouth: Talks about a mile a minute, which contrasts against John's more laconic nature.
* NonActionGuy: While Matt isn't very accomplished when it comes to fighting, he knows all the hacker tricks [=McClane=] needs to defeat Gabriel.
* PipePain: Uses a pipe to kill one of Mai's henchmen by hitting him; the henchman subsequently falls into the elevator shaft.
* SwordAndSorcerer: Has this dynamic with John; he often needs [=McClane=] to fend off bad guys long enough to hack into whatever Gabriel is up to, but can stall Gabriel's plans and figure out his plans in ways that non-tech-savvy [=McClane=] could not on his own. Their combination of brains and brawn save the day.
* TookALevelInBadass: Though he does later pick up a gun [[spoiler:and shoots Gabriel's [[TheDragon other Dragon]] during the final showdown.]]
* PlayfulHacker: Large computer terminals, chugs down energy drinks... and went to Space Camp!
* TheSmartGuy: [=McClane=] is out of his depth with all of the hacker stuff but Matt picks up the slack.

!!Miguel Bowman

* BaldOfAwesome
* DeadpanSnarker: Especially to the [=DHS=] and [=FBI=] agents sent in to assist with the situation.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Not so much at first since he's skeptical of Matt's suggestion that the entire situation is a fire sale. However, he quickly wises up and tries to support [=McClane=] and Matt as much as he can. He even gives his word later on that he would save [[spoiler:Lucy after she was kidnapped should something happen to John]].

!!Thomas Gabriel
->'''Played By:''' Creator/TimothyOlyphant

* BadBoss: See You Have Outlived Your Usefulness below
* BigBad: For the fourth film.
* TheChessmaster: His plans are far reaching and manipulates many parties to get what he needs.
* TheCracker: No system is safe against him.
* CreepyMonotone: Provided by Timothy Olyphant, natch.
* DarkIsEvil: Wears all black clothes.
* DeadpanSnarker: He is not impressed when [=McClane=] covers up a camera to block sound.
* DiabolicalMastermind: He is the leader of a pretty elaborate evil plan.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He is not at all happy when Mai is killed.
* FallenHero: In a way. He wanted to protect the country. Then he decided that infinite wealth would be kind of nice.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler:Doubly so; shot by [=McClane=] with his own gun, through a bullet wound that he was torturing [=McClane=] with.]]
* ItsAllAboutMe: Screw the U.S.! He has money to make!
* ItsPersonal: He really doesn't like John killing Mai well.
* {{Jerkass}}: Described as "not a people person." He's an asshole to his own {{Mooks}} except for [[DarkMistress Mai]].
* LackOfEmpathy: Shuts down the entire country just to be rich and gives zero fucks. Just ask the people who probably died when he blew the gas mains.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Just because he is technology driven villain doesn't mean he will avoid collateral damage to massive degrees to achieve his goals.
* UnholyMatrimony: With Mai.
* SoftSpokenSadist: He shows no remorse for anything but speaks softly and in monotone.
* SinisterSurveillance: Part of his intel gathering hinges on taking over surveillance systems along with pretty much everything else.
* SmugSnake: He believes himself to be on a higher intellectual plane then everyone else, particularly [=McClane=].
* TheSociopath: Has no problem with [[spoiler:ruining an entire country by stealing all of its money, or how many people he murders in the tunnel to flush out [=McClane=] and Farrell. And that's not going into what happened when he blew the gas mains after Mai died. To be honest, he wouldn't give a shit.]]
* UnderestimatingBadassery: Each time he throws something at [=McClane=], he believes the cop would not survive it. Even at the beginning he thinks he can bribe John into killing Farrell.
* VillainousBreakdown: After Mai's death, he started to lose his cool.
* WeaponOfChoice: A Jericho 941 pistol in stainless steel.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: At least he ''claims'' to be. The fact that he's "getting paid for his work" kind of makes this hard to believe, though.
* WouldHitAGirl: Slaps Lucy around a few times.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness:
** Does this to the hackers who gave their codes to Mai; this is where John gets involved, when Gabriel tries to eliminate Farrell and John gets there first.

* TheDragon: To Gabriel.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: She means enough to Gabriel to cause him to flip his lid when she dies.
* LightningBruiser: Easily the most capable hand-to-hand fighter in the movie. It takes some serious CarFu to take her down.
* MadeOfIron: Gets run over by an [=SUV=] and survives.
--> '''John''': "How you doing?"
* SacrificialLion: [[spoiler:Most people were probably not expecting her to die comparatively early in the film.]]

-->'''[=McClane=]''': "Jesus, is the circus in town?"
* MadBomber: His ''modus operandi'' is to rig the hackers' computers with bombs, then activate a virus. When the hacker presses delete to close windows, the bomb is triggered.
* OhCrap: When he sees a police car flying at the helicopter he's in. He makes it out, the pilot doesn't.
* TheUnintelligible: Only speaks French (which might not be good French at all considering the usual quality of French in Hollywood).
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: His job is to cover Gabriel's tracks by killing people.
