Okay, here's where I'd like to go with this thread:

What are your favorite nicknames given to characters (hero or not) by antagonist characters? They can be from either films or novels.

A few examples of some of my favorites off the top of my head:

"Law-dog" - given to Wyatt Earp by Ike Clanton in TOMBSTONE
"Old Stick" - given to Lew Harper by Dwight Troy in HARPER
"Happy-Crappy" given to Trashcan Man by The Kid in THE STAND (novel version)

and of course...

"Blondie" - given to the man with no name by Tuco in THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE UGLY


I'd love to hear back from everyone as to what their favorites are!

"Shit Bird" as said by Russell Crowe's character in L.A. Confidential

"Fuck Stick" said by Matt Damon's character in The Departed.

"Fuck Ass" given to the stuttering bar tender by the McMannus brothers in Boondock Saints

not really a "nickname", more of an insult, but it made me laugh:

"what would a woman that fine want in a big, fat, nasty, greasy, fat, stank, bloated, cheesy-backed, 12 sandwich eatin bastard?" said by Eddie Murphy to Richard Pryor in Harlem Nights.

"Ding Whopper" was what some guy in Forbidden World called the monster. That's most recent one I can think of. too much pressure.

Although not by an antagonist - When the great James Lorinz dubs Tony Darrow "The Don of Douchebags" from Street Trash. Classic.

In Pulp Fiction when Jules calls that kid with the hair-do 'Flock of Seagulls,' it's pretty funny, IMO.

I think Rudy Ray Moore calls a couple people that in Dolemite, or at least something VERY similar to that.
