d6 RPG: The Asphalt Jungle: archetypes in a heist movie


Just watched The Asphalt Jungle, the old heist movie. Really interesting that you can break down most of the characters along d6 Archetype roles:

  1. Dick is the Muscle and is very easily the Hero.
  2. The Skillful Boxman is the Madman.
  3. Doc, the mastermind is the Genius.
  4. Gus, the stoic Driver is the Saint.
  5. The gladhanding bookie is the Mimic.
  6. The business man who funds it without knowing what he’s getting into… the Hapless.


I think the bookie is really the Hapless.
The rich business man is the Mimic.
