Manga[edit | edit source]
Midvalley the Hornfreak was originally a member of a three-man band that used sound to perform assassinations for money. Knives discovered their talent and intended to press them to join his Gung-ho-Guns. The other two band members immediately refused and attempted to kill Knives, and were quickly executed. Throughout his service as a Gung-ho-Gun, Midvalley hoped to betray Knives and Legato Bluesummers to escape.
When he is sent alongside Hoppered the Gauntlet, they plot to disobey orders to torment, but not kill Vash the Stampede. This would allow Hoppered to get his revenge on Vash and for Midvalley to disappear in the aftermath. While Hoppered attacks Vash, Midvalley, and Nicholas the Chapel fight a secondary duel. Midvalley's and Hoppered's plot ultimately fails and Legato reveals his knowledge of their betrayal. Legato then executes Midvalley by commanding the giant that transports him to smash Midvalley with the giant's spinning motorcycle tire. Afterward, he uses Midvalley's dead body to try to execute Hoppered as well. Though Vash protects Hoppered from Legato's attack, Hoppered later succumbs to his wounds and passes away. Vash and Wolfwood bury Midvalley and Hoppered next to one another, setting Midvalley's saxophone on the gravestone. Wolfwood remarks that he feels no sympathy for Midvalley's failure to escape his doom.
