The story was full of many cases of situational irony. One such case is that Scoresby, who was incompetent and not hardworking, became very successful because of pure luck, when it was expected for him to fail. Another bit of irony came when Scoresby had made his way to a higher rank over the Reverend in such a short time, and the Reverend had worked tirelessly for most of his life to be in the position he was currently in. It was also quite ironic that the Reverend had been the one who helped Scoresby pass his examination test perfectly, and then Scoresby got all the credit. This feat moved Scoresby up the ladder a lot faster than what he would have without the Reverend.

Santiago was so ashamed that he “wanted to cry” (Coelho, 39). However, he did not give up hope. He remarkably responds to this spiritual test by looking to the old man who had taught him to look to Urim and Thummim when he had trouble coming to a decision. After collecting himself, Santiago successfully passes his first psychological challenge realizing that “he had to choose between thinking of himself as the poor victim of a thief, or as an adventurer in quest of his treasure” (Coelho, 42).
After Victor finally finishes his dreadful invention, he believes that his creature is absolutely perfect because of all the effort it took to construct; it took countless months and many sleepless nights. However, what he saw in his eyes didn’t fill his heart with joy, but with disgust after he realizes what a huge mistake he made. Mary Shelley presents irony by describing the creature as flawless, but in reality it has no human features.

Through this, it can be determined that Victor was naive at first because he did not consider the consequences of his creation.
