Of the three main characters in GBU, Blondie seems to the more regular guy, while Angel Eyes is the greatest villain. Tuco may be classified somewhere in between.

This, however, is a qualitative judgement. Quantitative statistics tell a different story:

Blondie’s victims:
3 bounty hunters in a dispute over Tuco
3 companions of Tuco (spurs that come in by the door)
3 companions of Angel Eyes in the frontline town
1 Angel Eyes in the showdown
Total = 10

Tuco’s victims:
2 bounty hunters in the intro
1 Shorty (by not permitting Blondie to cut the rope)
1 sergeant Wallace
1 the left handed gunfighter
2 comrades of Angel Eyes in the frontline town
Total = 7

Angel Eyes’s victims:
1 Stevens
1 Stevens’s eldest son
1 Baker
Total = 3

Thus, surprisingly, from this point of view, the ranking should be reversed!

I believe that Tuco was more of a villian that any other character but he did it in a more humorous way.

Angel Eyes and Blondie are in the same sort of business. Bounty Hunter(Con Man) and Assassin, being paid to kill somebody.

Well, except for Shorty, and perhaps the bounty hunters, you could say that everyone Blondy or Tuco killed was killed in self-defense. Angel Eyes killed wantonly, and he killed a child; that is why he is The Bad.

Thanks for the tally, Rover!  8)

That "child" had a rifle. Angel Eyes is a pretty wicked dude though. Tuco is a really bad person but so hillarious. Everytime I see that scene where Blondie leaves him in the desert with the rope & Tuco's shouting at him, I burst out laughing.
