He devours two of Odysseus's men on the spot and imprisons Odysseus and the rest in his cave for future meals. While the remainder of men are frightened, Odysseus begins thinking up how to flee. He successfully outsmarts the cyclops and escapes. This shows that in times of horror and grief, to remain calm and remember the enemy may appear stronger, however, a mind has the strength of a million
Odysseus created an escape plan when he and his men got trapped inside the cave of a deadly Cyclops who had already eaten two of his men. Odysseus kept his cool and devised a plan to hide under the sheep of the Cyclops who were let out of the cave every morning.These actions had an effect on his men, filling them with respect. These are the kinds of actions that make Odysseus an epic hero. The faults of a person may also contribute to them becoming an epic hero. Odysseus’s large ego is one of his faults.
One thing all these great hero’s have in common is their supernatural abilities to use agility, strength, or immortality. This supernatural ability are probably the biggest keys to success for these hero’s and is most likely the cause they are super heroes in the first place. With Spiderman, his unnatural agility and keen sense of awareness is something that he uses every time he goes to fight crime, as we have seen in movies and been described to in comic books. This supernatural ability has saved his life and made it 100% possible for him to do the times he could have never done before his spider bite as it described his as a normal boy who was lonely and unimpressive before his abilities. Thor is another prime example of this beautiful cause of events, as he grew up in Asgard as a normal child and grew to a normal man for his kingdom but was granted great powers by his father Odin and is now known as a very powerful being.
The greatest villains are those who skillfully mask their dangerous characteristics. Gaston quickly and easily convinces all the villagers to kill the Beast, a scene which illustrates his villainous traits. He delivers a speech about the dangers of the Beast, ending with the phrase, “I say we kill the Beast!” (Beauty and the Beast). Gaston is already loved by the entire town, so it was not a surprise that his speech is followed by cheers as well as the formation of a mob with new intentions of destroying the Beast. Gaston’s ability to appear as a hero to everyone and cause the villagers to support him in killing the Beast, simply to achieve his own goal of making Belle his wife, showcases his persuasiveness.
First, we must examine the fact that although Odysseus does prevail, there are many things that support strength and power being dominant . Including the fact that yes, the men do escape Polyphemus, who was in control and had Odysseus’ destiny in his hand’s. How so? He ate six of Odysseus’ men and had them all trapped. He could’ve easily slayed all the men but instead waited to eat them over time.
Specific ability of devil power from the devil fruits strengthens characters. 1. ‘Diamond Jozu’ ,the 3rd division commander of the Whitebeard Pirates, has eaten a devil fruit that allows him to transform parts and most likely all of his body into diamond and merge with his very big and muscular body, he cannot be harmed easily in term of physical. C. The enemies who gain devil power become like a huge, difficult and dangerous task for the protagonist. 1.
He was incredibly courageous as well. Also since he was the strongest man on earth there was no doubt that he was extremely confident. He would fight anyone because he knew that eventually he would win no matter what. The only way someone was to beat Hercules was if they were using magic or supernatural forces. Hercules was also very tall, and had very broad shoulders.
Nevertheless, “when he beheld their smiling, their swagger of golden helms, the frown of his thunder blasted the first man from our walls for God hates utterly the bray of bragging tongues” (parodos, 21-25). Zeus, perhaps the most powerful patriarch of the Greek gods, is responsible for maintaining order in both the real world and the spiritual world. Thus, he helps Thebes win the battle when he notices the Argive army exulting in their impending victory. Subsequently, the two brothers find themselves in single combat and kill each other, hence, continuing the presumed Oedipus’ family curse. Furthermore, upon their deaths, Creon buries Eteocles in a grandiose commemoration, yet deserts Polyneices’ corpse to rot and be devoured by the birds and dogs; to preclude someone of a burial
In his day, he was the mightiest man on earth” (195-200). Just by reading this line, one can see that Beowulf was portrayed as one of the mightiest, most exquisite men in the world at his time. Whether it was his strength, courage, or willingness to please the people, something set him apart from the “normal” individuals. I think this illustration, created by Rubin and Garcia, really portrays what traits Beowulf possessed. In addition to being courageous, powerful, and possessing a willingness to protect the people, Beowulf was able to harness the monster inside of him in order to conquer his foes.
This was one of my favorite parts in this book, page 842. They all banned together and carried Eowyn to protection, this leaves the crew fired up to defend her in battle. On page 847 “For more lust of battle was on him; and he was still unscathed, and he was young, and he was king: the lord of a fell people. And lo! Even as he laughed at despair he looked out again on the black ships, and he lifted up his sword to defy them.” When Gandalf finally arrives he sees the group and they escape to a Citadel he says, “Such deeds he loves: friend at war with friend; loyalty divided in confusion of
That’s just one of the ways he shows that he’s set his sights on getting home. Later on in the book nine, he’s in a difficult situation; the Cyclops and it’s eating all of his men. But, Odysseus is so determined to get home he gives the one-eyed beast a big bowl of wine. Odysseus thought to himself “...no one turned away when cups of this came round” (899). Meaning that no turns away some good alcohol.
After Beowulf’s triumphant win against the demon spawn Grendel and his mother, Beowulf was rewarded for his great deeds and his status in the eyes of the Anglo-Saxons has greatly increased. Sadly enough Hygelac is killed then Beowulf takes over as ruler of Hygelac’s kingdom. 50 years has passed, Beowulf is a great ruler over his kingdom but there is a new challenge that he has to face. A peasant man stumbled upon a sleeping dragon’s lair and he thought it was a great idea to steal some treasure from the lair. The dragon was awakened from his slumber and he was enraged that someone stole treasure from him.
Odysseus is a cunning man, with elite skills which puts him at the top for his time. He is a powerful mortal, but revered as a demi-god. Odysseus himself has the capability to lead a vast army with no problem and little effort. He has the exquisite ability to persuade even the most stubborn of men. No expense spared for his speeches, it 's all out persuasion when he speaks.
