Lucille is a wooden baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire first encountered in the episode "Last Day on Earth" of Season 6 of AMC's The Walking Dead. It is used by Negan to kill both humans and walkers alike.
Nothing is known about Lucille before the outbreak began. It is assumed that she was initially a basic wooden baseball bat that was kept by Negan himself or an unknown person.
Most likely after the outbreak, the baseball bat was wrapped in barbed wire either by Negan himself or somebody else. Negan used Lucille to kill zombies and numerous people.
Lucille is seen being wielded by Negan. Negan introduces her to Rick Grimes, the leader of a powerful group of survivors that have killed a multitude of Saviors and who now kneel surrounded to receive their punishment. She is seen being pointed at people. Negan decides to bash someone's head in. He commences a game of eeny-meeny-miny-mo and goes around pointing Lucille at Rick's group. He gets to an unseen survivor and bashes someone's head multiple times with Lucille.
It is revealed that the person chosen by Negan was Abraham Ford, whom he proceeds to hit in the head. After the first blow, Abraham reincorportes and mumbles "Suck my nuts" before Negan strikes him down to the ground and brutally beats him to death, completely destroying his entire head. Afterwards, he flings Lucille, which causes Abraham's blood to splatter on Rick's face. He then tells the group, "Look at my dirty girl!" As Negan taunts Rosita Espinosa, whose particular reaction he is attracted to, with the bloodied bat, an enraged Daryl Dixon gets up and punches Negan. After Daryl is restrained and put back in line, Negan says that he won't let this pass, and suddenly hits Glenn Rhee in the head. After watching Glenn suffer for a few moments and say his last words, Negan smashes his head in as he did with Abraham. Glenn's scalp and brain hang off of Lucille as Negan jokes that she is a vampire bat. When he's talking to Rick, he asks if he had killed his right hand man. Rick then stares at him. Due to the way he looks at Negan, Rick is dragged to the RV. Negan drives to the same spot where the Saviors hanged a man the previous episode. Negan dispatches a couple walkers here from inside the RV and orders Rick to retrieve his hatchet which Negan has thrown onto the roof of the RV, pointing Lucille at him. Rick does so successfully. They drive back to the forest and Negan tells Rick to chop Carl's arm off or he'll take Lucille and bash his skull in and the Saviors will shoot Rick's group. Before he does so, Negan stops him and reminds Rick that he belongs to him and provides for him.
Negan was trying to scare Daryl with Lucille while Daryl was trying to escape the Santuary. He even goes as far as to attempt to kill Daryl, after muttering, "Screw it". Daryl, not phased, grabs Negan's arm just as he swings Lucille. Negan stops, in awe of Daryl's guts. He goes on to say that Daryl "[doesn't] scare easy", and that he likes that about him. He then walks off screen while the Saviors beat up Daryl and threw him back into his cell.
Negan uses Lucille to knock on Alexandria's gate while asking for someone to let him in. Rick opens the gate and Negan, after using her to kill a walker, places Lucille in his possession for the vast majority of the episode. During the time Rick has Lucille, Negan, repeatedly, places himself in positions where it would be easy for Rick to hit him with his own bat. Rick, at this point, has been firmly subdued by Negan and allows all of these opportunities to pass by. As he and his Saviors leave Alexandria, Negan reclaims Lucille from Rick stating that "[Rick] wouldn't want to hang on to it anyway."
Joseph stops by Negan's apartment to give him Lucille, which Negan left by the cargo truck. After laughing along with Negan's jokes on how he handled Lucille, Joey is rudely dismissed.
At the dinner table, Negan tells Carl and Olivia that he is done waiting for Rick. Negan takes Lucille and places it on a chair, and says that she is hungry. After killing Spencer Monroe, Rosita Espinosa, incensed at Spencer's death, shoots at Negan, but accidently hits and damages Lucille instead, which was in the way. As punishment, Negan orders Arat to kill someone, and she shoots Olivia dead.
The following is a list of victims killed with Lucille:
- Lucille is the only weapon in the television universe to be named.
- Lucille's existence has been hinted at since "No Way Out".
