Topic: Boba Fett-like characters in books, movies, comics, etc.

For anyone new to the boards, this is a "clone," if you will of an old topic in the achives, but in no way am I taking credit for it. I did not create the original topic.

Here is my list: Snape from Harry Potter (cunning, loyal and trecherous, emotionless); Rohanoa Zoro, Mr.0/Sir Crocodile, and Juraquille "Hawk-Eye" Mihawk from One Piece; Wolverine from X-men

Original Topic

It could be nice to format them line-by-line and include the character and why, like you started:

Snape (Harry Potter) - Cunning, loyal, treacherous, emotionless

Interesting topic.
Well, to me, only one character comes to mind as being similar to Boba Fett. I speak of HUNK from Resident Evil. Don't laugh at his name, it is some sort of code name. HUNK is a member of Umbrella's spec op forces. In Racoon City, he was the sole survivor of a group of forces that went in to retrieve the G-Virus from the labs. He is also a playable character in the RE4 mini-game Mercenaries. Alright, this probably means nothing if you haven't played RE, but he is similar to Boba Fett because:
-He wears a gas mask over his face, and the one time where his face is shown, it is sort of hidden in shadows.
-Not much is known about him... mystery factor.
-a gun-toting badass who can snap people's neck with his bare hands.
Not a good picture, but best and smallest I could find:

When I watched Hellboy, I kept thinking "Man, that Assassin guy is sweet!  He's like the Fettster!"  But then he took off his mask and it turned out he had no eyelids or lips.  It kinda went downhill from there....

Oh yeah, I forgot about him. By the way, is your signiture from the "League of Extrodinary Gentleman?" Some other characters that I can think of are Rain Spider from Desert Punk, Reptial and Noob Saibot from Mortal Kombat. Also, Death is fairly similar to him.

How could I forget Ermac? Ermac, along with Reptile, Noob Saibot, Scorpian, Smoke (what the heck, all of the ninja) are my favorite character.

Re: Boba Fett-like characters in books, movies, comics, etc.

I've got a few obvious ones; The Terminator, Rambo, and Roland Deschain from Steven King's 'Dark Tower' series (best series of all time).

Why, yes it is.  Totally kewl movie.
I would have to reread the book to be certain, but I seem to recall the Investigator dude in this really obscure Piers Anthony book called "Omnivore" as being kinda Fettish.  He was this kind of government agent whose memory would be wiped every time he completed an assignment so that he would be completely unbiased.  And he was always very serious and professional.  But like I said, it's been many years since I read the book.

Oo! Uh... this one guy ing this story we read in English. Uh it was called, The most dangerious game....or something like that. An' this one guy on a island started hunting humans instead of animals...an' for some reason he reminded me of Boba Fett big_smile smile

Been ages since I've been here.
:] Whats up?

Re: Boba Fett-like characters in books, movies, comics, etc.

I love that story!  (Although it seriously disturbed me.)  If I recall, though, that guy was psychotic in a bad way, whereas Fett is psychotic in a good way.

Re: Boba Fett-like characters in books, movies, comics, etc.

I was comparing work habits, nobody really wants to go against Boba Fett that's at least sane. or alucard if they even knew what he was capable of. They're the best at what they do, not nessasrily on the same level of course.

Samus Aran from Metroid. Both are bounty hunters. Both keep their appearences secret (or try to). And both have tragic pasts. The obvious difference though is Samus is a woman.

And her armor's real weird.  I will never understand how she fits into a suit of armor that has a waist about four inces in diameter.

If ya love me . . .And ya know me . . . And ya've seen me . . .

Re: Boba Fett-like characters in books, movies, comics, etc.

Well, her armour WAS specially crafted for her by the ancient Chozo race, so of course its weird. But hey, Boba can't go underwater and move as freely as if he was on land.

Man, this makes me want to go Super Metroiding now. D=

Half Dragon, half human, 100% Fett!

No, he means this topic is dead. On each topic right before you click to see it off to the side it says when the last post was. Check that date to see how old the topic is before posting. Not trying to be rude.
