The ways of an Oriental view
The sheriff and his buddies with their samurai swords
You can even hear the music at night
- Andy, the crazy cowboy from the "Cowboy Funk" episode of Cowboy Bebop decides to become a samurai (complete with katana) at the end of the episode, after Spike beats him.
- In the Captain Harlock spinoff Gun Frontier, the Old West incarnation of Tochiro is one of these. He shows some traits of this in other entries in the franchise like Cosmo Warrior Zero.
- GUN×SWORD which takes place on a Space Western planet where cowboys and mecha roam. The protagonist Van is a cowboy who wields a metallic cloth that can turn into a sword, with its hilt looking an awful lot like a gun handle with a trigger included. Plus he pilots an Armor that uses a sword. In addition, his rival uses a gun that looks like a Japanese sword handle, with his two very long magazines kept in his belt, making it look like he's carrying a daisho.
- The one-off antagonist Rai-Dei the Blade of the Gung-Ho Guns in Trigun is basically a samurai on a Wild West planet. He is treated as outrageous and insane. He dodges bullets. He wears a fringed leather vest with hakama and his katana can fire its blade if necessary. In the manga, he does all of this on rocket skates.
- Justice from Afro Samurai at first seems like a straight example of The Gunslinger even fighting Afro's father (who is using a katana) to a standstill with two pistols in one of the most badass fights of the series he eventually plays this straight when it is revealed that he has a hidden third arm that wields a katana.
- Azuma Mutsu's arc from Shura No Toki is arguably this. Azuma, while isn't a samurai or a cowboy, is a Japanese man thrown into a cowboy/frontier setting and ended up mixing characteristics from both sides.
- Sazanami in Naruto is a former swordsmith turned bounty hunter. His katana has a hilt shaped like a rifle stock and he wears a cowboy hat. In the English dub, he's voiced by Steve Blum and gets an Actor Allusion for that other bounty hunter he played.
- Sukiyaki Western Django lives and breathes this trope.
- Shanghai Noon merges Western tropes with kung fu action. At one point a character uses a sheriff's badge as a throwing star.
- The Warrior's Way deals with an Asian assassin who settles in the Old West and is ultimately tracked down by his past associates. Essentially, it's Cowboys Versus Ninjas.
- The Good, the Bad, the Weird, being a remake/adaptation of The Good The Bad And The Ugly set in Manchuria.
- Bunraku features a gunslinger without a gun and a samurai without a sword as its two heroes.
- The Charles Bronson film Red Sun is about a cowboy who must help a samurai (played by none other than Toshiro Mifune) recover a stolen sword.
- The main character in the Knights of Cydonia music video plays this trope to the T.
- Rising Zan: The Samurai Gunman
- Red Steel 2 currently provides the page image for good reason. The main character is a duster-wearin', sword-swingin', pistol-packin' hombre with a very Nice Hat. He is in fact from an entire TRIBE of them, the Kusagari.
- Gemini from Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love is a cowgirl — right down to having a super-effective horse and a Colt Peacemaker on her belt. She also carries a katana, and was trained by an exiled samurai.
- The appropriately named Samurai Western.
- Yasha from Asura's Wrath has a bit of this going for him, especially in his theme song Wind.
- Jack in Wild ARMs 1 has more than a bit of this—he wears a classic Western duster, jeans, and cowboy boots with a hat to match(in out-of-game art), but is a Master Swordsman specialising in Iaido. Of course, his past is as something more like a European Knight in Shining Armor, and his current role before being swept up in the plot is more Indiana Jones than Man With No Name...
- The Player Character in Fallout: New Vegas can easily be this; wearing cowboy hats and dusters while wielding a katana, all while adhering to a strict code of honor. This is even lampshaded by the achievement for dealing damage with melee weapons, 'New Vegas Samurai.'
- Yasuo in League of Legends has the "High Noon" skin, which turns him into this trope.
- Zer0 got a Tombstone themed head and skin for Community Day◊. Given that the game itself is a Space Western, it's quite fitting. Zer0 also has Vladof class mods built around improving his skills with pistols.
- The Avatar: The Last Airbender episode "Zuko Alone," complete with a Showdown at High Noon. Though Zuko uses Chinese-style swords, the effect is the same.
- Weilding twin katanas as well as a gun, and being an explosives expert and being a lone ranger type, Transformers Prime Wheeljack could well be said to be one of these.
- Often utilized in Samurai Jack; the title character would often take the role of the Lone Stranger who comes to help a town in need.
