For example, when Odysseus tells Circe that it is time for him to leave and return home, Circe tells him, “Odysseus, master mariner, and soldier ... to the cold homes of Death and pale Persephone.” (Homer.10.925) Circe is telling Odysseus that he must go to the underworld before he can go anywhere else. According to many of the Ancient Greek beliefs, the Underworld was a place of the dead and was a far distant land that no mortal man could go to and return.
The omniscient narrator tells us that Grendel has the ability to curse the iron around and about him, more specifically, the ruination of any arms that Hygelac’s kinsman carried. Yet the men’s swords and weapons sang as they attempt to aid their leader. Grendel bellows an eerie cry, signifying that the end of the battle was near as he was unable to free himself. The tearing of his arm is described vividly; “…a tremendous wound appeared on his shoulder. Sinews split, and the bone-lappings burst.”
Monty Python and the Holy Grail’s creators emphasized carelessness and cowardice. The knights ran away in fear, killed innocent civilians, and argued over nonsense. Every component of this Arthurian Legend was twisted around in order to satirize the story. For example, Arthur’s battle with the Black Knight was an important component of the legend conveyed in a completely different light. The fight was hilarious rather than glorious.

Supernatural Strength In Beowulf, by Seamus Heaney, Beowulf’s supernatural strength is important to an epic hero in to keep the balance between good vs evil. To begin with, evil is winning when Grendel attacks the Heorot Hall until Beowulf arrives. “ Grendel was the name of this grim demon/haunting the marches, marauding round the health/and desolate fens; he had dwelt for a time/in misery among the banished monsters/Cain’s clan, whom the Creator had outlawed and condemned as outcasts” (Heaney 102-107). Grendel is a supernatural creature who wants to be apart of the community, but since he is not able to Grendel becomes upset ,which allows evil to rise.
He finds a solution to slay the monster in every battle for example, "The fight is difficult but; Hrunthing fails its user, but Beowulf sees a great sword, too big for anyone but himself, and uses it to kill the mother" (Hanning 7). Although the purpose of the monster may be to add action throughout the plot, Beowulf battling the monsters not only adds action but also portrays him as a hero for fighting the
There is no doubt that Beowulf is the unsurpassed warrior that swims great distances on a whim or rips monsters to shreds with his hands, yet some of the people that the Web-Head has to beat take more than brawn, to fight those villains he has to have brains. While Beowulf could just walk up and beat the tar out Grendel, Spidey, fighting someone comparable to Grendel like The Rhino, would need to think about what he has to do to protect the
While “killing the dragon is a deed that a cultural hero can do such as The Red Cross Knight or Beowulf” (Arslan 142), Bilbo is a different kind of hero.

Bilbo discovers his true potential, seen only at first by Gandalf, through his adventures under the Misty Mountains, in the forest of Mirkwood, and inside the Lonely Mountain.
Meanwhile, the world of the labyrinth is far from an escapist fantasy - it is full of dangers and real-life tragic consequences for Ofelia. But yet again, true monsters aren 't the ones who simply follow their nature but the low-ranking army officer of a burgeoning fascist police-state who uses his power to hurt and kill those even less powerful than him, even when he claims to care about. Pan 's Labyrinth is an unsettling, yet undoubtedly beautiful and heartfelt
