Every tale requires a hero. Humans have a natural desire to root for a character in a story. There are 6 types of heroism in storytelling which are as follows:
The willing hero is the first kind of hero we’ll encounter. You recognize this hero because, when everyone else is fleeing from danger, he advances it with a glitter in his eye.
The unwilling hero, in contrast to the willing hero, approaches difficulties with uncertainty and fear. He is confused about what direction to go in.
The tragic hero has a serious weakness that ultimately brings him to ruin. However, the tragic hero should be pitied rather than mocked.
One of the most typical characters in literature is the traditional hero. He is almost impossible-perfect. The classical hero is brave and eager to do what is right, just like the willing hero.
The epic hero is something of a myth. He becomes greater than any one person because he stands for the best aspects of a civilization.
Although famously difficult to write, the antihero is entertaining to read. He’s not exactly a traditional hero, to start.
