Top 5 Eye-Patches of Sci-Fi

About four years ago there was a great blog post by Ancient_of_MuMu called The Moustaches of Sci-Fi Calender. I'm not going to do a calendar. I could force another seven characters onto the list, but frankly the eye-patch look is harder to pull off than you might think. So I'm going with the Top 5.

An article on eye- patches. Who woulda thunk? It worked for me though. Kurt Russell and the Governor. Good choices. I notice, not one of them is the chick in the front page shot, so I have to ask, who is she?!

Some kind person added that picture for me. I only did the ones in the article. It totally works as a cover though. Better than anything I'd have picked.

I didn't forget her. I specifically mentioned how awful she was.



Nothing against AJ, but the eye-patch just doesn't work on her.

It's your list and you can rank them any way you want. You use a pretty loose definition of sci-fi in order to make it. She made my top five though....


Why is she awful exactly?

Maybe its the shape of the patch to her face or the hat or the digital sepia look of that movie. Hard to put into words really. Just doesn't look right to me.

She looks lame ...not badass and she's completely blown away by the sexy, unknown chick in Mad Dog's cover shot.

God, that thing re: Saul Tigh's (white) flesh colored eyepatch. I thought the same thing when he had it. Like "I don't give a shit. Just make it the same creepy color as a generic band-aid."

+1 for General Chang. I love the riveted-to-the-face look.

Also, since Asgardians are technically aliens I'd argue that they qualify as sci-fi, so I would suggest Odin's eyepatch from the Thor movies. I also like the half skullcap with eye lens that Breetai wears in Macross but I don't remember if he can see through the lens so it might not qualify.

Man, great idea! I love these sort of off-beat lists and posts.

For what it's worth, here's mine...

5) Doomsday's Eden Sinclair was based on Snake Plissken and that's good enough for me. Plus, I really dig the movie.


4) Rooster Cogburn. Bridges wore it well, but as usual, I'll give the nod to the original. Was The Duke the first leading man to wear an eye-patch? i dunno.


3) Major Bludd. When I was a kid, I always played this merc as the most vicious of the baddies. Must have been because of the 'patch.


2) Voltan. From my favorite fantasy flick...medieval eye-patch for the win!


1) Snake Plissken. Yep...can't beat a classic.
