The Greasers win the rumble, Johnny dies and Dally is very upset and gets himself killed. Dally is a round character because he is both a cold and caring Greaser.
A hero, according to the Merriam-Webster online dictionary is “a man admired for his achievements and noble qualities”, or “one who shows courage”.

He has been hurt before, and is scared that if he lets it show, the same thing will happen again. However, very soon after he reveals his soft side, he is hurt worse than ever before.
