Budd is a major antagonist of Tarantino's Kill Bill series. He is a minor antagonist of Kill Bill Vol. 1 and a major antagonist of Kill Bill Vol. 2.
He is Bill's degenerate brother. He is recognized by Bill as "the only man [he] ever loved".
He was portrayed by Michael Madsen, who also played Victor Vega in Reservoir Dogs, James Alexander in L.A.P.D.: To Protect and to Serve, Toni Cipriani in Grand Theft Auto III, Maugrim in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Michael O'Leary in Call of Duty: Black Ops II, William Carver in Telltale's The Walking Dead and Grouch Douglas in The Hateful Eight.
He was the only other male Deadly Viper and since the assassination squad's disbandment, took to living in a mobile home, where he steadily became an alcoholic, making ends meet by working as a bouncer at a strip club.
Bill warned Budd of his impending danger, but when the Bride does find him, he sees through her sneak attack, shoots her with rock salt (making him the only Deadly Viper to singlehandedly defeat The Bride), buries her alive (later described as a 'Texas funeral') and steals her priceless sword. She escapes her casket, but not before Elle has planted a live black mamba (the Bride's codename) that kills Budd. Budd once owned a Hattori Hanzo katana, and told Bill and Elle that he had sold it for $250 in El Paso (Budd lied; The Bride later found the sword in a golf bag in Budd's trailer). When told by Bill that Beatrix was coming to kill him, Budd philosophically said "that woman deserves her revenge. And we deserve to die. But then again, so does she." When Budd makes this statement in Volume 1, the last sentence is not included; the full statement is spoken in Volume 2.
He told The Bride that her live burial was retribution for breaking Bill's heart. During Bill and Budd's confrontation Bill mentions an unpleasant event between the two of them that Budd was apparently angry at Bill for, but the details of this event are never mentioned.
Budd was murdered by Elle Driver during a deal where she was pretending to buy Beatrix's sword for one million dollars, but the suitcase was also hiding a venomous black mamba snake, which bit him several times on his face. Budd then proceeded to have a seizure as he painfully died on the floor in his small trailer.
- Despite being the least qualified out of all the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad's members, Budd came the closest out of all five members to killing The Bride.
- He's also the only one not to have been murdered by the Bride.
