Re: Hero, Anti-Hero or Villain?

Nov 17, 2006
"anti-hero has widely come to mean a fictional character who has some characteristics that are antithetical to those of the traditional hero. An anti-hero in today's books and films will perform acts generally deemed "heroic," but will do so with methods, manners, or intentions that may not be heroic. The actual use of the word, however, is fairly recent, and its primary meaning has somewhat changed. As recently as 1940, the 600,000-word Merriam-Webster New International Dictionary, Second Edition, listed it but without a definition. By 1992 the American Heritage Dictionary of the American Language defined an anti-hero only as "a main character in a dramatic or narrative work who is characterized by a lack of traditional heroic qualities, such as idealism or courage," not as a person who nevertheless performs heroic acts. Even the more recent Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, 11th Edition, of 2004, says: "(1714): a protagonist or notable figure who is conspicuously lacking in heroic qualities." The original meaning, therefore, is that of a protagonist who is ineffectual and hapless, rather than resolute and determined, whether his motives are good or bad. In some instances, anti-hero has come to refer to a protagonist of a work whose actions and motives are villainous or questionable.

Thus, anti-heroes can be awkward, antisocial, alienated, cruel, obnoxious, passive, pitiful, obtuse, or just ordinary. When the anti-hero is a central character in a work of fiction the work will frequently deal with the effect their flawed character has on them and those they meet along the narrative. In other words, an anti-hero is a protagonist that lives by the guidance of their own moral compass, striving to define and construe their own values as opposed to those recognized by the society in which they live. Additionally, the work may depict how their character alters over time, either leading to punishment, un-heroic success, or redemption."

To answer your question and anti-hero is a good guy without being good.  The Punisher,Batman, and Travis Bickle (Robert De niro) from the Taxi are good examples of  anti-heroes.  Anti-Heroes are the good guys by default as there are no real heroes around (lesser of two evils).  A common thing you see with anti-heroes is that they are always angry or have a score to settle (revenge).

Yeah it does. I know in Anime they say that villains have pointy chis, small pupils, strong facial features, etc... The hero usually has rounded chin, some facial features, near large or medium pupils, etc... Anti hero, usually in between.

Looks like he could be a hero, but at the same time be a villain.

I agree, but funny thing is is that he is just looking down direction wise, but eyes looking up. I guess this is just a "villainy" look.
