There are four playable bounty hunters in the game who are out to claim rewards offered for eliminating the most wanted outlaws in the West. In the Sega Genesis version, however, there are only two playable bounty hunters.
Billy Cool is a bounty hunter who wields a revolver and speaks in a western country accent.
Cormano Wild is a bounty hunter wearing a Mexican poncho and a sombrero who wields a rifle. He later wears a red sombrero worn by El Greco after neutralizing him.
Bob is a bounty hunter wielding shotgun who speaks in a southern American accent.
Steve is a bounty hunter who also wields revolvers similar to Billy’s as his bullets from his revolver appear to be more powerful than Billy’s own bullets.
Wanted Outlaws :
The outlaws are the recurring bosses of the game as Richard Rose is the final boss at the end of the game.
Simon Greedwell is a rich and greedy outlaw who is greed for money and the boss of the first stage. He wields a shotgun while ordering his men to deal with the bounty hunters.
Hawkeye Hank Hatfield is a rich outlaw who is known to shoot a gun in one hand and the boss of the second stage. Despite his efforts to kill the bounty hunters, he was neutralized.
Dark Horse is a muscular outlaw who relies on riding an armored horse and the boss of the third stage. Once he was neutralized by the bounty hunters, the armored horse runs away along with his corpse.
The Smith Brothers are the siblings of outlaws who caused trouble inside the saloon owned by a beautiful woman and the bosses of the fourth stage after Dark Horse. As the bounty hunters neutralize the brothers, they are seen watching the dance performance of three beautiful women on stage who informed them about Richard Rose and his three henchmen.
El Greco is one of Richard Rose’s henchmen and a Mexican outlaw serving as the boss of the fifth stage who wields a shield to deflect their shots and a whip to whiplash them. Once he was neutralized by the bounty hunters, El Greco gave his red Mexican hat to Cormano Wild before he fell into the train as Cormano watches.
Chief Scalpem is a chief from the native American tribe who is expert in knife throwing and one of Richard Rose’s henchmen serving as the boss of the sixth stage. Despite his efforts to defeat the bounty hunters, he was neutralized but was soon spared by the bounty hunters due to his younger sister’s plea knowing he was following Richard’s orders. In the Sega Genesis version, Scalpem serves as the boss of the third stage.
Paco Loco is a hulking outlaw and one of Richard Rose’s henchmen serving as the boss in the seventh stage who wields a Gatling gun. Once he was neutralized by the bounty hunters, he says the last word Hasta la Vista, Bye Bye! referencing the T-800’s main catchphrase in the 1991 film Terminator 2: Judgment Day
Sir Richard Rose is a rich and dangerous outlaw with elegance and the main villain of the series serving as the final boss of the game. He is an expert gunslinger in one hand using his revolver and demonstrating his agility at a faster pace. He is able to outsmart the bounty hunters by using a diamond to cover his chest to avoid getting killed. But on the last fight, he was finally neutralized by the bounty hunters as the single rose on the background was destroyed indicating his defeat. In the Sega Genesis version, the diamond covered in Richard’s chest is replaced with steel and he serves as the boss in the fourth and final stage.
As Always, Good Luck and Have Fun.
