11 Bad Ass Scenes With Omar Little of “The Wire”

HBO’s hit show The Wire only aired for 5 full seasons but it will go down in history as one of the greatest shows ever. Despite the excessive amounts of violence and adult related material, the show depicted life in United States inner cities very accurately and in way that no other TV show had before. The show follows everyone from politicians, to cops, drug dealers, to the school system in Inner City Baltimore.

One of the most memorable characters was the show’s version of Robin Hood, Omar Little.  He was the lone gunmen who, instead of choosing to get a regular job like regular folks, he chose to rob drug dealers.  He always managed to come up with creative ways to do it.  Later, he would live off of his earnings from that was well as gave back to the rest of the slum.

The ironic part about Omar’s character was that he was gay so he wasn’t your typical stick up kid, he was an actual homo-thug.  I bet you wouldn’t mess with him though and here are 10 clips that show you why.

***Warning: These videos depict lots of violence so if you have a weak stomach, might wanna skip this one***

Here is how the show introduces him. Hello Omar, nice to meet you.

Lets bang it out

He get ambushed and still manages to get away, how? I don’t know.

Whatever you can’t rob, blow up.

Here’s how you rob the motherload…

He may have been a killer but he only killed when necessary, in this case, he had the wrong guy.

Poor white guy, he doesn’t even look like he belongs there.

“You Come At the King,You Best Not Miss”

Omar doesn’t need a gun to beat someone, watch him make this lawyer look like an asshole.

Is there any negotiating with Omar when you cross him? I guess not.

Omar and Mouzone get sweet revenge on Stringer Bell, I was waiting for that the whole series.

  • Yeah

    Best character in the greatest drama in history.

  • I would put the scene where he tries buy Honey Nut Cheerios in his pajamas up there. Granted, it’s not action packed, but it’s definitely bad ass.

    Also, when he shanks the dude in prison, that’s definitely more bad ass than him killing Savino.

  • Excessive violence? Sure, there was some pretty hefty stuff once in a while, but I think McNulty’s drunk driving and staggering caused more noise and damage than the corner boys.
    I think with Marlo turning up, the violence went up quite a bit, but before I sometimes wondered why nobody even has guns.
    Regardless, Omar is that dude.

    Omar’s also the only character on the show who never uttered a curse word. Ever.

    • Nixoid

      He did on a select few occasions. When he poses in the wheelchair. "Whoa shit!"

  • Stephen Grabowski

    What about the scene where Omhar and Brother M. meet up again? I thought that was the best Omar scene in the show.

    Good compilation, but you missed the very best Omar clip of all… it’s the intro scene where he and Brother Mouzone have a showdown in the alley.

    “Omar listenin'”

  • Pat

    There is nothing "ironic" about the fact that Omar is gay. Unexpected? Maybe. Definitely not ironic, though.
