A hero is a person who is brave, does great, and is admired for doing so. Stereotypically, a hero is a vigilante who fights crime daily and may even have a costume.

Heroism can be found in the novel ‘The Outsiders’ by S.E Hinton. These heroes are known as the Greasers.
Beowulf is definitely brave for fighting and living his life to protect others. For example he battles the treacherous monster Grendel in order to ensure that the rest of the village was safe from the tyranny of this beast. Despite the fact that he conquers this beast alone he was supposed to have help but was abandoned at the last second. This makes the task much more difficult for Beowulf. This quote gives certain evidence that Beowulf fights for others: “A prince of the

The characters dialogues where believable and adequately portray by their circumstances. You have the noble hero, motivational muse that keeps the hero alive, the political figures, the villain’s, the comrades, the friend’s. In my opinion the main character, Ender remains the same. Ender is a smart and noble worrier and his biggest conflict throughout the movie is that he wants to defeat the enemy but still feels the necessity to maintain his humanity in the process. Possibly the biggest and only change we see in Ender is that he loses his fears and learns to be a leader and ultimately the noble hero of the story.
“The Red Badge of Courage” is about teenager, Henry Fleming. The plot of this book is that Henry, who is very scared and intimidated, is fighting in the war and comes out being the hero; you can say he is an underdog. A Red Badge of Courage is a wound received when one is injured in combat. Henry gives everything he can to fight and win, but there is one problem, he does not have a Red Badge of Courage like everyone else.

When Beowulf is explaining to Hrothgar how he is going to attempt to kill Grendel, he says, “My hands alone shall fight for me, struggle for life against the monster” (25). Beowulf is brave enough to fight against a monster with only his hands, while most people would not even attempt to fight at all. Beowulf is a true hero because even though both sides have a fair chance at winning, he does not get scared and continues to complete the task. Beowulf asks of Hrothgar, “That this one favor you should not refuse me- that I, alone and
It is kind of cool because he left at a young age it doesn’t mean I want to leave at a young age, but it’s cool for him.
