The Gung-Ho-Guns (ガンホーガンズ, Ganhōganzu) are a group of assassins assembled by Knives and led by Legato to cause great pain to Vash. Each one is human [with the exceptions of Gray the Ninelives, who in the anime, is a robot and Zazie the Beast, who in the manga, is a hive mind of insects], but has sacrificed their humanity in order to gain power. Each Gung-Ho-Gun has an assigned number, but not all numbers were revealed. Their objective was to participate in Legato's "killing game" as a means to torment Vash. He has them each carry half a coin and gives Vash a case to hold them, telling him that something "special" will come from it. The filled coin case functions as a device to block Legato's powers.
Members[edit | edit source]
The following are the members of the Gung-Ho-Guns who appear throughout the franchise; both the manga and anime. The assigned number comes from a combination of self-reported numbers by the Guns and by the order that Vash tallies his collected twelve coins.
- #1 Monev the Gale
- #2 E.G. Mine
- #3 Dominique the Cyclops
- #4 Leonof the Puppet-Master
