A gaming term that derived from any multiplayer "shooter" video game where "elimination" is involved. A "hero" is the last standing player who successfully completes the round through major extremities or when the odds are stacked heavily against them.
Call of Duty; Search & Destroy: "He was the only one on our team alive and he took down 5 (or all 6) guys by himself and won the round. He's a 'Hero'.

Gears of War; Horde mode:

"'Hero'! He completed the wave (there has to be a significant amount of locust alive, of course) on his own after we all died."

*The key thing to remember is that this person (or hero) has to be ALONE when the odds are stacked SIGNIFICANTLY against him (for Search & Destroy, at least 5 guys); yet he still eliminates the opposition AND wins the round.

Honorable term co-opted by corporate douches to pump up poorly paid 'associates' or other low-wage workers. This mis-use of the term devalues real heros by referring to anyone who is doing what the corporate douche wants done at the moment as a hero. A real hero is someone who risks their own wellbeing to save another putting themselves in mortal peril.
Yeah, I'm gonna need you to come in Saturday and clean out this grease trap. Thanks hero!

Anyone who does something of value, any value, for someone or something other than themselves, that will be forgotten by most within nanoseconds but still, grand recognition of the event persists anyway because of the narcissistic nature of contemporary society. The requirements for earning this moniker were much more extensive in the 20th Century and earlier. Back then, you had to, like, save somebody from a fire to earn the title.
He opened the door for the old lady behind him, and he didn't even slam it in her face this time. What a hero! This great deed will be heralded for all... oh, got a text... what was I saying? Can't remember. Probably wasn't important anyway.

11pm news broadcast: Guy holds door for old lady, who escapes her normal facial bruising. This guy has just been picked to be the grand marshal of the next town parade, followed by him receiving the key to the city.
