Both protagonists are being hunted in some way throughout the story. For Will Kane, he is being chased down by Frank Miller, an old criminal that Kane sentenced to death who somehow got out of his sentence and wants to get revenge by killing Kane.

Then he shoots an enemy sniper. He goes and finds out that the enemy sniper he shot was his brother.

Because of their overconfidence and thirst for something new , little unremarkable thing that happens to both of them, that results to huge changes. Both Rainsford and Eckels have something common, they are both trophy hunters and adventure seekers, they have both looked Death in the eye, but they are absolutely different. The way they act in urgent situation, proves that they have different personalities and points of view. Rainsford gets on the island, escaping from the danger - swimming for his life, and when he gets there he is forced to hunt.

The short story, “The Most Dangerous Game” written by Richard Connell, consists of General Zaroff being the hunter and Rainsford being the hunted.
