There's always some unhappy corner of the globe where we can ply our trade.

Was it worth it?

Emil Fouchon is the main antagonist in the 1993 film Hard Target.

He is portrayed by Lance Henriksen, who also portrays Dr. Jarret.


Fouchon is a wealthy sportsman who hunts homeless former soldiers as a hobby. However, when he discovers that he is being investigated by former Force Recon Marine, Chance Boudreaux, he sends 5 paid hunters, his right-hand man Pik Van Cleaf and a large group of his own men after him. Fouchon, determined to eliminate any "loose ends", follows Chance to a large warehouse where Chance kills all of Fouchon's henchmen, including Van Cleaf.

Fouchon then engages in a vicious gunfight with Chance, taking Natasha hostage and stabbing Douvee with an arrow. Chance then charges at Fouchon before dropping a grenade down his trousers. Fouchon tries desperately to dismantle the grenade but fails, and he is killed instantly when it explodes.
