Additionally, Katniss shows selflessness by taking her sister, Prim's, place in The Hunger Games. The text displays Katniss volunteering to take her sister’s place when she was drawn to enter the Hunger Games and is allowed to enter instead of Prim (The Hunger Games Trilogy).

Oedipus, a man fated from birth to kill his father and marry his mother, is the epitome of Aristotle’s tragic hero. The traits necessary to be a tragic hero are as follows: nobility and goodness, hamartia, hubris, peripeteia, anagnorisis, and catharsis. Prior to Sophocles’ play, Oedipus Rex, he saves the kingdom of Thebes from a sphinx, showing his goodness. This earns him not only the title of king, but also Iocaste as his wife. Right away, he demonstrates hubris by saying, “I know that you are deathly sick; and yet,/ sick as you are, not one as sick as I” (5).
