Main character of show by the same name. Full name Angus Macgyver. Part secret agent for government and phoenix foundation, part handyman, part mad scientist, part community service volunteer. He might refuse to use guns, but nobody could ever call him a pussy. Macgyver can battle soviet supersoldiers and serve soup at a homeless shelter all in one episode. Macgyver was the epitome of 1980s era optimism. Beats the commies, fixes the environment, cures aids, and can make a helicopter out of garbage bags and bamboo. Most importantly, he's the only guy who ever looked cool in a mullet and is probably the only guy who could get away with it now.
Who'd win in a fight? Macgyver or Col Jack O'Neal from Stargate SG-1?

Trivia: On episodes where Macgyver makes explosives from household materials, the producers always leave out one ingredient, fearing that people at home would imitate the recipe. While most inventions and scientific wizardry seen on the show probably wouldnt work too well in real life, they're all scientifically sound and Could work.
