Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) has killed a lot of people on The Walking Dead over the years. Like, dozens of people. But not all the deaths were of equal impact. Some of them were milestones in the progression of Daryl's character from regular guy to killing machine. Some of them made us cry. And some of them were just badass.

The video above collects seven of the most memorable murders and mercy-killings. Not all of Daryl's great kills are represented (the time Daryl blew up those biker Saviors with a rocket launcher would definitely be No. 8 though), but it does cover the full spectrum of deaths, from tragically having to put down Merle (Michael Rooker) to shooting an arrow into Morales' (Juan Gabriel Pareja) throat like it ain't no thing cuz it ain't no thing.

Daryl will add to his body count when The Walking Dead returns Sunday, Feb. 25 at 9/8c on AMC.
