The Venture Bros. is one of the best cartoons on TV thanks largely to Brock Samson, one of the most violent and vicious animated characters ever conceived. Throughout Venture Bros., Hank and Dean's bodyguard has participated in bouts of violence befitting a man known as the Swedish Murder Machine. Whenever Sergeant Hatred isn't trying to fill his shoes, Brock tops himself as arguably the most badass secret agent ever created.
Seeing Brock put his combat skills to the test against robots, mummies, henchmen, ghosts, and wild animals is one of the best parts of the show. This murder machine has taken down nearly anything or anyone that stands in his way. All of which is done with pure rage, uncanny strength, and a bit of swagger.
The amount of sadistic creativity in how Brock dispatches his foes is equal parts awe-inspiring and hilarious. The "half Swedish, quarter Polish, quarter Winnebago" legend has thrown down on The Venture Brothers many, many times, but only the more bloodthirsty, bone-breaking instances are on this list. Take a look and vote up the most violent Brock Samson moments from the legendary Adult Swim series The Venture Bros.
Shish-kababbing a Swordsman
The swordsman/Silver Age comic fanatic known as Le Tueur attempts to cut down Samson in the season three episode "The Family That Slays Together Part 1," but just guess how that ends. Even after having his nipple sliced off, Brock beats Le Tueur with a Bible, then kills him with his own sword. Seriously, sword guys really need to cut out the chit-chat and just get to the point already.453Was this gloriously violent?
Bone-Breaking Buttocks in Action
Season one's "Ghosts of the Sargasso" showcases Brock's ability to maim and destroy with just his muscular buttocks. A pirate guard attempts to search Brock's most private bodily cavity, but a mere clench of Samson's cheeks breaks the pirate's hand. Not only that, but Brock's booty death grip allows him to swing the pirate's body around and knock out a second guard. Even Samson's ass has a body count.5216Was this gloriously violent?
"No Guns. I Don't Use Guns."
When his license to kill expires in the season one episode "Mid-Life Chrysalis," Brock has to take his recertification exam. During his firearms test, Brock declines the gun and proceeds to violently tear through the test dummies with nothing but a knife and mullet-fueled rage. A gun would only slow down a man that efficient in murder.426Was this gloriously violent?
Crazed Crocodile Kill
In the pilot episode "The Terrible Secret of Turtle Bay," Brock is attacked by a crocodile that stowed away on the X-1 plane. He proceeds to butcher the beast. Look at Brock's face when a U.N. guard politely asks to confiscate his knife. Look at his face. LOOK.
Do not. Don't. Just. Just let him keep it.417Was this gloriously violent?
