The Terminator is the only character to be listed in the American Film Institute's 100 Heroes and Villains as both a villain (for this film) and a hero (for Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)). Al Pacino and Arnold Schwarzenegger are the only two actors to be on the list as playing a villain and a hero, but Pacino played two different characters. 13 other actors and actresses appear twice or more but either all as heroes or all as villains.
