Micah Bell is the main antagonist of Red Dead Redemption II. He is Pinkerton's informant/spy.
Why He (Intentionally) Deserved To Be Gunned Down By John Marston
- He is a racist person toward people who aren't white (i.e Javier Escuella, Charles Smith, and Lenny Summers).
- He is also extremely disrespectful and heartless towards Arthur's tuberculosis by calling him a "Black Lung" and then preceding to murder him afterward (only if he has low honor).
- At first appearing to be nothing more than a cruel thug, he shows a glimpse of his true colors when arrested for murder in Strawberry; after being broken out, Micah forgoes a clean getaway to go on a killing spree, culminating in the murder of an old friend and the man's wife, all to get his favorite gun back, leaving half the town dead.
- Considering that he is a member of the Van Der Linde gang, he doesn't seem to be loyal nor care about the gang that treats him fairly, making him seem overly single-minded and a total recluse who nobody should ever be cooperating with. Which is ironic, considering that he betrays the aforementioned gang near the end of the game.
- He once taunted Sadie and then burned down Sadie's house with a lantern for no good reason but to spite Sadie.
- He is an unlikable killjoy who can't stand hearing a joke nor allowing anyone to joke around. A prime example of this was when Lenny said that when Micah falls, there'll be a party; as a result of that, Micah violently hits Bill for laughing in good spirits, which also makes him seem short-tempered as he took the joke too personally.
- After Hosea's death, Micah takes advantage of Dutch's eroding sanity to commit more immoral and destructive acts, and sells the gang out to the Pinkertons, nearly killing everyone in the gang, including the non-combatants.
- He would always manipulate Dutch, the leader of the Van Der Linde gang, into his own bidding and kept double-crossing him until his death. Which shows how much he betrays Dutch's trust with no remorse.
- When Arthur exposes him as the rat, Micah denies it and during the standoff, he kills Susan Grimshaw because she stood up to him. Because of this, Dutch pulls out his gun and even asks who's betraying him, despite Arthur's prove in front of him.
- By far the most unpleasant member of Dutch's gang. Boasting a mean streak a mile wide with his smugness, bigotry, and Lack of Empathy, he is loathed by almost everyone around him. In addition, he's a murderous sociopath who makes Bill and Dutch in the previous game look tame in comparison.
- Thankfully he has received his comeuppances from Javier and Charles.
- At least he was eventually killed by mh:greatcharacters:John Marston, as the latter was avenging Arthur's death.
- Despite his many flaws, there were instances when he's well-written.
- Peter Blomquist does a great job voicing him.
- Where Micah does shine is his marksmanship, as he is able to kill 3 men during the Rhodes shootout, and during his final fight with John, is able to counter Dead Eye.
