This is my first attempt at an only connect wall and honestly, I expect it to be solved within the hour, if not the first 10 minutes.

|  Angel    |  Hollywood  |  Werewolf   |  Heron     |
|  Starling |  Goose      |  Walker     |  Rudd      |
|  Sheriff  |  Moorhen    |  McCartney  |  Doctor    |
|  Jester   |  Beast      |  Iceman     |  Gambit    |

Rules:

The 16 words above can be split into 4 different categories, each with 4 words in it.
Your task is to present the words sorted into their categories with an explanation of what the categories are.

McCartney | Walker | Rudd | Hollywood -Stars(TV/music) named Paul
Goose | Moorhen | Heron | Starling - Birds
Werewolf | Doctor | Jester | Sheriff - Roles from Town of Salem
Angel | Iceman | Gambit | Beast - Marvel Characters/X-Men

    $\begingroup$ Perfect, well done! Can you spot the hidden 5th group as well? (which takes one from each of the other groups) $\endgroup$ – AHKieran Dec 12 '18 at 9:39
  • $\begingroup$ At first glance i see a connection to Destiny 2: Walker (enemy), Starling (Starling Bolt - legendary Sparrow ), Jester (Gemini Jester - Exotic boots for hunter), Gambit (game mode). But i'm not sure about that :) $\endgroup$ – Quantoss Dec 12 '18 at 9:47

I only got one group, and it wasn't even right, but anyway - here's the hidden fifth group:

Goose, Iceman, Jester, Hollywood - nicknames of Pilots in Top Gun

Do I win a wooden spoon or something?

  • $\begingroup$ There is no Wolfman on the wall but the other four are the intended hidden group, well done :D $\endgroup$ – AHKieran Dec 12 '18 at 10:48
