A protagonist that lacks the characteristics that would
make him a hero. Quite simply, antiheros rock. Most of them are social
outcasts, who have no desire for foolish things such as 'friendship' or 'trust'. An antihero can be a jerk, or even have every
characteristic of a villain, but because success wouldn't be possible without their
are still considered good guys. Due to the fact that antiheros are not stupid, they
probably won't do anything helpful unless they
are paid, or unless
there is some fine huny
the plot. Antiheros are 97% better
off than most
people in the world, in the way that, they
are good guys, but they
're not stupid, and they
actually give a damn about money.
Hero: Oh no! I seem to be suspended upside-down
over boiling lava, while several incredibly hot, young, teenage
girls are being held hostage!
save me! I'm so hot, young, and defenseless!
: Never fear! the antihero
Using hella sweet kung-fu, the antihero
subdues all of the hostage takers, frees the hostages, briefly makes out with a hot, young, teenage
girl, and then frees the hero (after stealing his wallet).
Hero: Thanks to you the day is saved!
: Yes, yes it is. I rock. Pay me. Now.
But, as the antihero
waits to get paid, he hears the sirens of police cars. Knowing that
he is wanted
in three states
for identity theft, and impersonating George W. Bush, he hops onto his motorcycle, and drives off into the sunset, only
to return another day.
