I like it when a woman takes pride in her appearance. Don't you?
~ Fouchet

Fouchet is the main antagonist in the 1995 film Bad Boys. He is a French drug kingpin who runs his drug cartel in Miami, Florida.

He was portrayed by Tchéky Karyo, who also played Anton Depeux in Addicted To Love and Jean-Pierre Richard in Kiss of the Dragon.


Fouchet first appeared when he and his gang plotted to steal thousands of dollars in heroin from the evidence room in the Miami Police Department Building. First, in order to lure any attention away from the police, has one of his men dressed as a police officer shot to death (staging it as a suicide).

Then they break into the building and, through ingenious methods, use the vents as a passageway for their sliding wagon to store all of the bags of heroin, while also taking out a security guard. Fouchet and his crew manage to escape with the heroin leaving no trace of heroin behind.

The next day, Fouchet and some of his men visited the "Al Capone Suite" and spotted an ex-hooker named Max, who was Detective Mike Lowrey's informant, with Eddie Dominguez, a crooked cop. Fouchet and his posse killed her when he found out that Max was working with the police and left Eddie to die as well. Her best friend Julie saw the whole thing and Fouchet's men went after her. When they failed to kill her, he told them to find out where she lives, resulting in a close call where Detective Marcus Burnett rescued her in the nick of time.

At a ship near the docks, Fouchet is in a makeshift heroin cooking facility where he scolds henchmen of his to speed up the process so he can sell his drugs on the streets.

Fouchet is hiding his drugs of heroin inside barrels of Ether in a delivery van and attends a party where he is almost shot by Julie. Fouchet happened to notice Lowrey being at the party and sends his men to go after them. He flees the area before he can get caught.

The next day, he goes to Lowrey's apartment where his men ransack the lobby and kidnap Julie in a shootout with Lowrey and Burnett.

He has an important drug deal with a powerful drug lord and sells his drugs to him. However, just as the deal goes down, Lowrey, Burnett, and the rest of the police arrive to stop it, prompting Fouchet to kill the drug lord.

After shooting Lowrey and Burnett, Fouchet makes a run for it in his car and speeds away from the burning airport hangar. However, the cops are not too far behind him, and catch up, with Burnett sidetracking and forcing Fouchet to crash his car near the wall that separates the runway. Having sustained an injury in the crash, he tries to run away, but Lowrey shoots him in the leg and brings him down. He also wants to kill him for what happened to Max, with Fouchet goading him to, but his partner tells him to "step off".

Fouchet's death.

Although unconscious, Fouchet is not finished yet and pulls out a hidden handgun attempting to shoot Burnett for revenge. However, Lowrey notices the gun's light reflection on his partner's face and pulls his gun out shooting Fouchet to death, avenging Max's death and putting an end to Fouchet's reign of terror once and for all.


A ruthless French gangster, Fouchet is easily the most evil character throughout the Bad Boys franchise and a dark presence in an overall lighthearted movie. He is very abusive to his henchmen and never shows compassion for them, nor for anyone else. For example, he kills one of his men to distract the police, and later, he kills his chemistry man Elliot for fucking up with his schedule, showing he is very impatient. He seems to have a taste for killing people, as he's seen shooting nearly everyone on his way for very petty reasons. He is also shown to be very wrathful, as he never smiles, neither is relaxed and every little mistake pisses him off. He chooses often murder to solve the problem and he has no redeeming qualities. 


  • Despite just being the main antagonist of the first film, Fouchet is easily the most evil Bad Boys villain. Unlike his successors Johnny Tapia and Isabel Aretas, who at least loved their children, Fouchet lacks any redeeming qualities and cares for no one minus himself.
