Are you gonna bark all day, little doggy... Or are you gonna bite?
~ Mr. Blonde provoking Mr. White.

Victor "Vic" Vega (better known as Mr. Blonde) is the central antagonist of Quentin Tarantino's 1992 directorial debut film Reservoir Dogs. He is also a playable character in the 2006 Reservoir Dogs video game adaptation. He is a psychopathic insane mobster and professional who works for and with the Cabot crime family. He is also the brother of Vincent Vega from Tarantino's later film Pulp Fiction.

He was portrayed by Michael Madsen, who also voiced Mr. Blonde in the video game (also is the only original actor to reprise his role), Toni Cipriani in Grand Theft Auto III, and Budd and Grouch Douglas in two more of Tarantino's movies, Kill Bill and The Hateful Eight, respectively.

Biography

I don't give a good f-ck what you know, or don't know, but I'm gonna torture you anyway, regardless. Not to get information. It's amusing, to me, to torture a cop. You can say anything you want, but I've heard it all before. All you can do is pray for a quick death... which you ain't gonna get.
~ Mr. Blonde

In the film, he pays a visit to crime lord and old friend Joe Cabot after serving four years in prison (during which he refused to rat on his partners or make any deals, as proof of his loyalty). By suggestion of Joe's son, "Nice Guy" Eddie, he is recruited for an upcoming jewelry heist. He is on parole and living at a halfway house and has a 10 o'clock curfew. He dislikes his parole officer Seymour Scagnetti, who was formerly a parole officer for Nice Guy Eddie. Nice Guy Eddie is given a "no show" job as a foreman for the dockworkers' union in Long Beach, California. Nice Guy considers Vic a "rabbit's foot" and nothing but good luck.  

The job goes terribly wrong, however, when the store clerk sets off the alarm; in retaliation, Blonde shoots and kills seceral employees and customers, horrifying his fellow robbers (especially Misters Pink and White). The police show up, resulting in a shootup in which Misters Blue and Brown are killed, and Mr. Orange - secretly an uncover cop - is severely wounded.

Vega manages to escape, and captures police officer Marvin Nash, whom he later takes to a warehouse where the surviving criminals regroup and try to determine what went wrong. After trying to beat the truth out of Nash with little success, Pink and White are picked up by Eddie to retrieve the diamonds that Pink hid away, leaving Mr. Blonde in charge of the officer and Mr. Orange.

Once he is alone with Nash, Mr. Blonde shows his true colors by savagely torturing the young cop to the song "Stuck in the Middle with You"slashing his face with a barber blade and hacking off his ear. Mr. Blonde mocks Nash by talking into his severed ear, and then douses him with gasoline. However, before he can set Nash on fire, Mr. Blonde is shot to death by Mr. Orange.

Personality

Right now, Mr. Blonde is the only one I completely trust. He's too fuckin' homicidal to be workin' with the cops
~ Mr. Pink about Mr. Blonde

Vic 'Mr. Blonde' Vega, is reticent and very calm, only speaking when he is spoken to. Beneath his smooth, calm exterior, however, he is a sadist who takes pleasure in torturing and killing people, as expressed when he tortures Nash while dancing around. It's even stated by "Nice Guy" Eddie that while he was in prison, he raped other inmates. Vic has no measure of humanity whatsoever, as he says that the people he shot in the bank "they set off alarm, so they deserved what they got".

The only member of the crew who sees through Mr. Blonde's act is Mr. White, who calls him a "psycho" and a "murdering bastard". Mr. Blonde appears to be loyal to Joe and to Eddie, having refused to inform on either of them in prison.

Video Game

Mr. Blonde in the video game.

Mr. Blonde is a playable character for 3 missions in the Reservoir Dogs video game adaption released in 2006. He is again voiced by Michael Madsen, who is the only actor from the movie to give his likeness and voice to the game.

The game depicts what Mr. Blonde was up to after the heist went wrong. A mission involves him escaping through a shopping mall, and taking the cop Marvin Nash hostage. Another mission has Mr. Blonde being chased by the cops with Marvin in the trunk of his car and he must not slow down to avoid Marvin escaping.

His "signature move" in the game (a method used to make all police surrender) is slicing an ear off, a reference to the infamous ear cutting scene from the movie. 

Quotes

You all done? You all through? You all done? Have some fire, Scarecrow.
~ Mr. Blonde's last words before getting shot by Mr. Orange.
Ya kids shouldn't play rough. Somebody's gonna start cryin'.
~ Blonde breaking standoff between Pink and White.
Yeah, blam blam blam blam blam... I told'em not to touch that f-ckin' alarm and they did. If they hadn't done what I told'em not to do, they'd still be alive.
~ Vic justifying his murders.

Trivia

  • In Quentin Tarantino's 1994 film Pulp Fiction, protagonist Vincent Vega is the brother of Vic Vega. Tarantino had planned a movie named The Vega Brothers which would see Madsen and John Travolta, who played Vincent, reprise their roles. He cancelled the project, however, because the two actors had aged since last playing their parts.
  • Despite being the most murderous and bloodthirsty character on screen, and being slated by the other robbers, he's never actually seen killing anyone during the entire movie.
  • Ironically, Michael Madsen can be heard saying "no no no..." when Vega is torturing Nash after Nash says that he has a kid (which was ad-libbed). This was because Madsen had just had a son before the release of the movie and was uncomfortable with the idea of killing a parent.
  • Matt Dillon was considered for the role of Mr. Blonde.
