General Zaroff gives off a stronger sense of danger than Montresor does especially when he says, "I hunt more dangerous game" (Connell 5).

He is willing to take on anyone that lands on his island showing he will not hesitate to immediately hunt them down. General
Zaroff was a general that owns a island called ship trap, he captures stranded people and hunts them down for a living. In the Wife’s story the main character was the husband and the author focused more on him by explaining the character thoroughly. Although the characters are completely different in “The Wife’s Story” and “ The Most Dangerous Game” both authors set the mood by exploding the moment and using characterization. That contributed to how we imagine the character in terms of how he looks and acts. In the first story “ The Most Dangerous Game” the main character Rainsford is being hunted by Zaroff the owner of Ship Trap island.
In the second chapter of the epic, Gilgamesh and Enkidu set out on their journey to destroy Humbaba, the guardian of the forest.

The setting on the island in “The Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell is essential to the plot. For instance, the island is necessary to the plot because if it is not an island then it would change the story completely. General Zaroff is smart enough to find a secret island to chase and catch his prey. Once they get on the island, they are trapped. Rainsford knew that once General Zaroff is out to get him “ He was in a picture with a frame of water, and his only operations, clearly must take place within that frame” (11).
The Most Dangerous Game “The world is made up of two classes-- the hunters and the huntees.’’ Rainsfords states this at the beginning of The Most Dangerous Game. What he meant was that we are all like animals, some strong others weak. Rainsford is the main character in “The Most Dangerous Game” that is written by Richard Connell. In the story there is a conflict between the main character, Rainsford, and the villain, Zaroff. The story takes place in an isolated tropical island in the Caribbean.
Aron Ralston uses survival traits to survive being trapped in between a boulder and a wall of rock. Rainsford from the story “The Most Dangerous Game” used his skills to survive being hunter by General Zaroff. Throughout these three stories, three survival traits are used to live through harsh conditions. Resourcefulness, determination, and willpower are the traits one must have to be a survivor. Resourcefulness is the survival trait used by Rainsford in “The Most Dangerous Game.” On page 20 of “The Most Dangerous Game”, Rainsford constructs a Malay man-catcher trap as an attempt to kill General Zaroff.
The effectiveness of this is to indicate thickness and how the snow remained in the boots for some time. The writer continues even in line 37 using personification.

Every kite runner wants to win and thus had to work hard in order to defeat another kite runner in the tournament.
For man against himself Rainsford is trying not to give up on himself and keep battling the general so he will not get killed. Throughout the story Rainsford has many challenging difficulties but can he survive and win the game? One of the main conflicts in “The Most Dangerous Game” is man against man. Man against man first takes place when General Zaroff is hunting Rainsford. The narrator says, “Rainsford held his breath.
The main character in the Most Dangerous Game, Rainsford, endured numerous troublesome trials. The last trial he endured, in my opinion, was the hardest; giving him the chance to attack and kill Zaroff right then and there, instead choosing not to take advantage of the situation. Ultimately, he confronted and challenged him to a fair and even sword fight, the winner getting to keep Zaroff 's home while the loser was fed to the dogs. This act shows a great deal of Rainsford 's character and personality, proving to be a man of honor and fairness, with respect in this scenario. Rainsford allowed an even fight to take place, and as a result, for his actions, he won while Zaroff received what he truly deserved.
