That is the case of Aragorn. He is a character which can be seen as a hero and as the protagonist at the first glance because he perfectly fulfills the requirements of a hero, but he is just helping Frodo to become one and to accomplish his mission. He is mainly described as: “Aragorn of course is the "born hero"--son of a long line of Kings, born to achieve great deeds in his time” (Hero worship). Furthermore, at many times, it seems that the fellowship would not be able to survive without Aragorn’s help. He can naturally display bravery and hope, and wisdom.
This showed his responsibility because he didn’t give up when they were caught, he explored his options and eventually found a way to save everyone. Something else that the hobbit did was helping the dwarves escape from the spiders. He had his ring of invisibility on at this time also, and had to untangle all the dwarves from the spider webs. Bilbo achieved doing this by distracting the spiders with songs and calling them, “Attercops.” The most responsible thing Bilbo did was he took over when Gandalf left. He is even told by Gandalf, “There was always more about you than anyone expected,”(274).
He is a strong willed human being who fears no beast or demon in the world. Beowulf values confidence, bravery, and fame all in which sculpt his overall image. These principles help him overcome monsters and myths most men fear. Beowulf seems to never lose these traits, thus causing him to be a courageous soldier for battle. Beowulf’s close minded ideals about himself makes him an example of a static figure.
Heroes, are everywhere. They are an aspect of our lives, culture and mind. This often leads us to ask what exactly a hero is. A hero is someone who has courage to do the things that they may not want to, they have the strength to pull through what they want or need to, and they are kind and compassionate to the end. That is what a true hero is, and that's what they will remain throughout time no matter how the challenges change.
Many heroes put aside their selfishness to do some good in this world we live in. Normal people can be extraordinary if they never give up, instead, being considerate, brave and determined enough that they leave a mark on others. Firstly, everyday heroes are always considerate of others and never act selfish. In the novel Messenger, the protagonist, Matty sacrifices his own life for the well being of others. When everybody was going to die, Matty,” Gave himself to it willingly” and traded his life for the life of others (Lowry 140).
A hero is a person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities. Beowulf is someone that has a strong will and mind. He believes that he can not be defeated and has the confidence that says so. He is an incredible fighter not letting anyone intimidate him no matter what their strength might be. Beowulf has a strength that some others did not.
He loves his wife and children and also provides for and cares for the men who help him fight. This trait of loyal reveals true heroism in Odysseus because, being loyal shows that even if a man goes through extremely hard times he can commit to other people whether it is keeping them safe or keeping his love for people that he cares for it is showing true
Beowulf is not really tested intellectually per se; he is not the subject of someone else’s deceptive practices like Gawain is or subject to social/ethical problems that Portia is embroiled in. He is a hero in the sense that he is called into action and responds willingly and enthusiastically without retort; he is unmoved in his pursuit of the objective placed upon him. "Often, for undaunted courage, fate spares the man it has not already marked." (572-573, Beowulf) In other words, if fate does not intervene, a means to an end can be achieved via courage and strength alone. This is Beowulf’s outlook on the notion of a hero.
Although some people think that, other understand Beowulf was only thinking about what’s best for the people. He put his safety aside for the others. To conclude Beowulf is beyond a doubt a beneficial hero. He was loyal, brave and basically superhuman. Having was ability to save his people and protect his society.
A hero is someone who stands up for something even if everyone else disagrees or someone who perseveres on. They are not afraid and never back down. Both Ulysses and Beowulf is a greater hero than Ulysses because he doesn't have hubris, is determined until his last breath and is always calm, he never gets angry. Ulysses had been too ignorant and was too filled with hubris to keep his mouth shut after devising a brilliant plan to escape from Polyphemus, the cyclops. He yelled “Poor fool!
