Big Shot is a fictional character from the animated series, The Tick. He is a spoof of The Punisher. In the TV series, Big Shot carries guns, grenades and other weaponry on his back. He appears in the first episode, as one of many heroes attempting to defeat the Idea Men and while on his way, fires upon nearby structures (such as chimneys) and reduces them to skull-shaped sculptures resembling the Punisher's skull emblem. This habit leaves him without ammunition when he finally meets up with the Idea Men, and he collapses into a weeping fit while tearfully asking, "Why couldn't you love me, Mom?!"
He appears later in the series, having seen an anger management therapist where he learns how to be more sensitive. Far more stable, he is now unable to say the word "guns" without stammering and twitching. He is voiced by actor Kevin Schon.
In the Comics, a character who strongly resembles Big Shot appears in the Comet Club at the Vigilante Table. Superheroes Handrill Harry and Friendly Fire give meaningful if somewhat confused reasons to explain their heroic lives, whereas "Big Shot" states that, "I just like Killing People."
