Merle’s personality is far from lovable. He was misogynistic, volatile, and a racist. His decisions and opinions rarely sat well with the other survivors so there weren’t very good reasons to like this character. But his unwavering love for his brother is what ultimately leads him to the path of redemption.
Merle isn’t one for dressing up, so it’s more than easy to dress like him. Here’s everything you need to look like Merle Dixon.
About Merle Dixon
As one of the more violent characters in the Walking Dead, Merle Dixon can be seen a lot during the bloodier and more action-packed scenes. But what not a lot of people know is that the infamous rooftop scene where Merle began shooting off caused real-life panic.
Some people were not informed that the crew of The Walking Dead was filming and phoned the police. The chaos that ensued caused a SWAT team to go to the area. Fortunately, the problem was resolved with no one getting hurt and arrested.
