Famine: Famine is probably the biggest cock of them all. He doesn’t waste bozos by impaling them on sharp objects, but rather opts for the more “hands-off” approach. He just jacks up the prices of food, causes droughts and/or eats all the food that he can find. He’s like a ten-time World Eating Champ, and he manages to kill people simply by either scarfing down every Moon Pie and Ho-Ho in a twenty mile radius or becoming a corporate asshole big-wig and getting rid of the Dollar Menu at Wendy’s so college students around the world perish from starvation. He’s like Arn Anderson in the sense that he’s the craftiest and most diabolical of the Four Horsemen.

Death:

Every time I hear Johnny Cash read that line about Death riding forth and bringing Hell with him at the end of “When the Man Comes Around”, I get a chill down my spine.  Death is without a doubt the most badass of the Horsemen.  He doesn’t even have a weapon or a method of killing, all he does is show up and the shit hits the fan big time.  Who besides Bill S. Preston, Esquire and Ted Theodore Logan can stand up to the physical embodiment of death in a fight?  Nobody, that’s who.  Death rides around on his pale green horse (The original Greek indicates the color of Death’s horse as being the sickly sort of pale green that people turn when they’re dying or recently dead.  Since “green horse” doesn’t sound all that badass, the English translation is “pale horse”) and everything that he comes in contact with dies.  It doesn’t get more badass than that.
