Spike Spiegel
Original name





Spike is a fictional bounty hunter who was born on Mars in the year 2044. He is 27 years old and is tall and thin in appearance. He has fluffy dark-green hair and reddish-brown eyes; one of which is artificial and lighter than the other. A flashback in Session 6 revealed that his fully functioning right eye was surgically replaced by a cybernetic one (although Spike himself claims to have lost his natural eye in an "accident"). He is usually dressed in a blue leisure suit, with a yellow shirt and Lupin III-like boots. Spike often has a cigarette between his lips, sometimes despite rain or "No Smoking" signs. His blood type is O, his height is 6'1" (185 cm), and his weight is 155 lbs (70 kg)

Spike makes use of sleight of hand techniques to win card games, pickpocket, and slip things onto other people unnoticed. He is also shown to sneak up on enemies through disguise or quiet movement. He is proficient with weaponry (such as his personal Jericho 941 as well as other guns and explosives) and hand-to-hand combat skills. He is a skilled martial artist and a practitioner of Jeet Kune Do. Spike is also a pilot and flies a converted Asteroid racer called Swordfish II, which is armed with four machine guns, missile pylons , and a plasma cannon. It is suggested he acquired it from his friend, the mechanic Doohan, in the year 2061.

When he is not shown working or practicing martial arts, Spike is very laid back, sarcastic, and lackadaisical, to the consternation of his crew mates. He is typically found either resting on the couch or reading a magazine. Spike's philosophy seems to be based on the ancient samurai ideals of immediacy, such as considering oneself as dead and the idea of death being an awakening from a dream, which are both elements of bushidō illustrated in the Hagakure. Series director Shinichirō Watanabe has said that Spike has a habit of being very indirect with his emotions; for example, he may behave antagonistically towards someone he actually likes. He says that this could apply to Spike's relationship with Faye.
