At first glance of the story, it can be easy to mistake Harrison himself as the breakaway hero. After all, he is first described as "a genius and an athlete, is under-handicapped, and should be regarded as extremely dangerous" (Vonnegut 197).

Harrison 's looks and sheer strength were said to have awed those of even Thor, the god of thunder (198). What makes him unable to be the hero, however, is his selfishness and delusional attitude.

In the novel Ender’s Game, by Orson Scott Card, he explores a world in which lies and manipulation are a positive idea.

With Valentine in the role of the ego, Ender becomes the super-ego. Valentine views Ender as a strong moral character, and while Ender does not agree, all the sins he commits are done under extreme duress, followed by extreme guilt. Despite the violence Ender engages in on several occasions, he, unlike Peter, is rarely eluded to as a monster. In fact, Ender is often described in ways that seem at odds with his twice-murderer committer-of-genocide status. The people in charge of Ender say that “he’s clean,” that he’s a good person, “right to the heart” (Card 66).
