Puncher: MongoPunchee: Innocent Horse
Why it’s Awesome:  There are various ways to establish a character as a force to be reckoned with.  Make him physically huge.  Remove his sleeves to show off bulging muscles.  Give him a short, single name with lots of back vowels.  Or just find the biggest, baddest person around and have him punch him in the face.  But Mongo goes the extra mile.  He’s not just the big strong guy - he’s the ridiculously big strong guy.  Anybody else would have faced off against the person, but Mongo punches out the friggin horse.  Without a second thought.  Who punches horses?  It’s completely outside any established rules.  Not to mention the horse must have like three times his mass.  It is his character establishing moment, and the character it establishes is one who does not mess around.  It is the crowning moment of face punch taken up to eleven.
Where to find it?: Blazing Saddles (1974)
