First Johnny killed Bob because he was drowning Ponyboy. Johnny was using the blade as a form of self defence.

To be a hero you must be able to be brave even if you’re facing danger straight in the face. You must also be willing to make sacrifice even if you’re sure you’ll die. So in conclusion Johnny Cade is the hero of The Outsiders because he died because he went into a burning building to save the

At the cyclops land Polyphemus killed two of Odysseus men well he ate them.

One of his friend’s suicide himself because of PTSD he saw men dead and seeing them die like no other human should see.
Some decisions Johnny made that were influenced by the gang members were killing the Soc, wanting to turn himself in, and saving the children in the burning church. A clear sign of the gangs influence on Johnny was when he decided to prevent the Soc’s from drowning Ponyboy and defending himself instead of letting the Socs beat them up and have them possibly drown Ponyboy. More specifically, after finally fighting back and killing Bob, he says to Ponyboy “‘I killed him’ he said slowly. ‘I killed that boy”’(Hinton 56). Here the author is explaining how shocked Johnny was once he killed the Soc.
Another reason that boundaries are important, in the book The Outsiders. Johnny eventually runs into a burning church not knowing what consequences there would be.

In S.E. Hinton’s novel, the Outsiders, Johnny shows his true bravery when the Socs try to drown ponyboy in a fountain for revenge. Pony struggled to breathe, but only made it worse, and eventually, blacked out; when he came to “‘I killed him’” Johnny said slowly, “‘I killed that boy’” was the first thing he heard. Johnny had been attacked by the same people once before, but never again, and this time he could defend himself.

He could have done great things in his life instead of stealing and being rude. But he chose not too. Sadly, after all the mess happened when Johnny died, he decided to go back to robbing. Later that day he was chased down by the cops all the way back to his house. He was sad and ready to die.
SOc Boy Killed Last night a Soc boy was killed. We have a witness his best friend Randy was there the whole time. We also have another witness his name is Ponyboy Curtis said, “His brother had slapped him that night and he and his best friend Johnny Cade had run away that night.” Johnny said, “I swear it was out of self defense, they were drowning Ponyboy.” Johnny was said, “That’s why I killed Bob.” Ponyboy said, “My friend Johnny killed Bob to save me, his men were trying to drown me.” Even though Johnny acted in self-defense they are still charging them with manslaughter. The cops are looking for them now in Texas. The Socs and Greasers are in a big dispute.
