I don't wanna kill anybody. But if I gotta get out that door, and you're standing in my way, one way or the other, you're gettin' outta my way.
~ Mr. Pink
Uh-uh, I don't tip.
~ Mr. Pink

Mr. Pink is a major antagonist in the 1992 film Reservoir Dogs. Unlike most of his accomplices, he is more level-headed and doesn't choose violence as a primary option. Like the majority of the other robbers, his real name is never revealed.

He was portrayed by Steve Buscemi, who also portrayed Carl Showalter in Fargo, Nucky Thompson in Boardwalk Empire, Garland Greene in Con Air, Mr. Wesley in Home on the Range, Francis E. Francis in The Boss Baby, Dwight Diddlehopper in The Simpsons and Randall Boggs in Monsters Inc. and Monsters University.

Biography

After his accomplice Mr. Blonde went on a shooting spree, Pink found a hole in the police barricade and "shot his way out." He ran with a satchel full of diamonds with three police officers tailing him close behind. Eventually, he is struck by a car and he proceeded to carjack it, making his escape. He revealed in the film that he considered just driving away instead of going to the rendezvous point. By the end of the film, his partners Nice Guy Eddie and Joe are killed for trying to kill Mr. Orange whose a cop, and Mr. Pink runs out with the jewels.

However, if the viewer listens closely, they can hear a faint scream after Mr. Pink runs out, which Quentin Tarantino has since confirmed was the sound of Mr. Pink yelling at the cops who shot and arrested him.

Video games

Reservoir Dogs (Video game)

Mr. Pink in the video game.

Mr. Pink features as a playable character in the 2006 video game adaption for Reservoir Dogs. His missions depict him escaping from the robbery and back to the warehouse, and then retrieving the diamonds that he had stashed. The way the player plays the game determines Mr. Pink's final fate at the end of the game. If they act "professional" (not killing everything in sight and being more strategic), Mr. Pink will escape after the Mexican stand-off, but lose the diamonds in the process. If the player gets a "career criminal rank", Mr. Pink will be arrested, and if they get the "psycho" rank, Mr. Pink will be gunned down by police when attempting to shoot his way out.

Payday 2

Mr. Pink makes an appearance in the game Payday 2. He appears in the Reservoir Dogs Heist, where he was shown to be with the Payday Gang, as shown in Day 1 of the heist (Garnet Group Boutique), him, Mr. Brown, Mr. Blonde and the gang were in a store of the same name to meet Cabot's men. His screen time in Day 1 is short only shown in the first parts of the heist, since after Brown was shot dead, he runs elsewhere to before the LAPD raid begins. He would later appear in Day 2 after you defended the warehouse, where he would be shown injured and bleeding after the car crashes, the gang escorts him to the safety in the warehouse.

Trivia

  • Mr. Pink's real name is never revealed, he is known in the film only by the identity given to him by his boss, Joe Cabot. He questions why his name/color is Pink, to which Cabot says, "Because you're a f****t, alright?" He tries to lessen the feminism of it by suggesting that they change it to Mr. Purple, only for this to be shot down as well by Cabot who says he already has a man going by that name working another job.
  • Mr. Pink is the only character to survive the events of the movie. Listening closely to background dialogue in the final scene, it appears Mr. Pink was shot and apprehended by police.
  • Mr. Pink is the only one out of all four main characters (the others being Mr. Blonde, Mr. White and Mr. Orange) not to have his true name revealed.
  • The late Dennis Hopper was offered for the role of Mr. Pink by writer/director Quentin Tarantino and star Harvey Keitel, but he was unavailable. Tom Sizemore was also considered for the role of Mr. Pink.
  • Despite that the film's ending discreetly implies that Mr. Pink was apprehended by the police, Steve Buscemi has expressed his belief that Mr. Pink actually managed to get away and is now working as a badly tipped waiter as punishment for being such a cheapskate. This is most likely not canon, however.
