He can hold his own in a rumble but distances himself from it as much as possible. He was nearly killed by a group of Socs one night. Johnny kills Bob to save Ponyboy and rescues children from a burning church. In the hospital, he mentions that rumbles are pointless. He lives like a hoodlum but dies like a hero.

Johnny Cade’s Appearance In The Outsiders

Johnny Cade is smaller than the rest of the greasers, with a slight build and big black eyes in a dark-tanned face. His hair is jet-black, heavily greased, and combed to the side, but it is so long that it falls in shaggy bangs across his forehead. He wears a dark t-shirt with a sky-blue denim jacket and jeans and always has a nervous, suspicious look in his eyes. The scar on his left cheek from when he was jumped and beaten severely by a group of Socs serves as a reminder of the struggles he faced. Johnny looks like a lost puppy, and Ponyboy often thinks of him as someone who has been kicked too many times.
