Once the knight has request the challenge, none of King Arthur's knights stood up for him and took the challenge. That made King Arthur furious and embarrassed due to the fact, that he is the king and should not have to address the Green Knight. King Authur decides to go ahead and accept the challenge until Sir Gawain stops him and accepts it himself. The reason he does this is because, he wanted to make a name for himself and stand out from the other knights who were too afraid to accept it. The challenge was that, if Sir Gawain chopped the Green Knights head off, he must return to the Green knight a year and a day later to receive the same thing.
Although Sir Gawain does not want to take the Green Knight’s challenge, he honorable takes the place of King Arthur and lies about his worth. The Green Knight arrives carrying an axe and holly, symbolizing peace and war, but tells them that he “travel[s] in peace and seek[s] no trouble” (12). Despite saying that he wants no trouble, he proposes a game involves one strike with his axe by whoever is brave enough for another done by him a year later. The court is baffled by his request, and when no one speaks up to take the Green Knights challenge, he ridicules them by conveying that “all the pageantry and power of the Round Table made nothing by the words of one man” (13). After the Green Knight finishes mocking the Knights of the Round Table, Arthur boldly takes the challenge until Sir Gawain politely requested to take his place.
Early on in the tale, Sir Gawain shows courage when he steps up and accepts the Green Man's challenge well knowing of the chance of Death. By doing so Sir Gawain surpassed his fear of death by stepping up to do a mission none of the other knights at the round table wished to do. His reasoning for this was to take the place of his uncle, King Arthur who was originally the chosen participant after none of the other present knights volunteered. After chopping off the head of the Green Man, Sir Gawain is told that he must go to the green chapel in one year and one day to meet the Green Man. Sir Gawain fearful of death debates whether or not he will set journey to the green chapel at that time yet his courageous characteristics force him to go.
He never gives up on hurting the kingdom that he continued to eat, without an opponent he continues to defeat the kingdoms warriors. Until the hero came to defeat Grendel and finally won because he strived for fame. Beowulf is very ambitious, ready to go to battle anywhere. The epic states “When he hears the tale of Hrothgar’s distress, he sets sail for Denmark to rid the land of its fear” (“Beowulf”). Beowulf did not know who these people were yet he sent sail for this journey just to earn a win on his hero card.

Sir Gawain is one of Arthur's most well known and liked Knights because of his uncanny ability to do the right thing. As the start of Gawain’s journey, he is called to action by the Green Knight.

The alliterative and epic poem Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, likely written in the mid to late fourteenth century, and is anonymous. In the poem, it is told about a chivalric quest. In brief, during a New Year’s Eve feast, at King Arthur’s court, the Green Knight visits there. He challenges any brave representative to a game. The Green Knight says that he will allow whomever accepts the challenge to strike him with his own axe, on the condition that the challenger find him in exactly one year later to receive a hit in return.
In this passage, this is the first time the Green Knight expresses his thoughts about Sir Gawain with great detail. The other times he speaks, he only says a few words. As the Green Knight condemns Sir Gawain 's for his bravery, he also draws attention to his wrongdoing. Despite Sir Gawain 's wrongdoing (Code of Chivalry), the Green Knight still considers him a brave man and explains his reasoning. The Green Knight 's responses to each of them shows he would be concerned with his own life just as Sir Gawain, if he was in the same situation.
Throughout generations, people have been hunting for food and population control, but in “The Most Dangerous Game” Rainsford thinks that hunting is a sport until he becomes the hunted. In the story, Rainsford met General Zaroff on the island; Rainsford thought he was a nice guy until he started hunting humans. Rainsford didn’t agree with him and refused to hunt, and he wanted to leave immediately, but Zaroff was started to hunt him. Rainsford uses his skills and knowledge to survive against General Zaroff.

Sure, might Adderpaw be a bit disappointed that the one who said such things was still his mentor, but he wouldn 't say no to being trained and slowly let out of his shell from the others help, he looked to the brighter side of things, he could 've been paired up with his close friend Smokebird instead, and she was known to fight just about anything that moved and was in range... Nor did she knew when to stop, a whirlwind of beatings, really. When he heard that he had been placed in the hunting party he had grown rather excited, the thought of being able to hunt with other clan members and create teamwork made the apprentice happy, maybe this was his chance to try and get used to being around others? Maybe he could even get rid of that burden of a stutter with some time? Might Adderpaw be closed-in from the rest of the world, but what was in his mind were large dreams of success and finally being able to rid his heavied shoulders of anxiety and the nervous temptation scratching down his spotted back, hopefully,
The cycle repeated and Michael just got used to it even so he still yearned to be free and rebellious but because of his stupidity, he is nowhere with no one to save him. In one of the cruel beatings, he heard the gunshots and this time they were inching forward at a rapid pace. The general which oversaw everything smirked and told the officials to take Michael to a different location and they followed suit as the rebels slowly took the hidden strong hold. In the days of sitting, Michael wondered how the rebellion grew and if there was another leader which lead it. He did not mind of course for he wanted it to succeed and he could see it in the eyes of the officials and guards that they were terrified of the rebellion and they know that the government is losing the game of cat and mouse which they played with the rebilion.
Secondly, General Zaroff evokes a level of terror never experienced before by the victim. When Rainsford first meets General Zaroff, he thinks of him as an affable man but really the General has been waiting to hunt Rainsford ever since he entered the house. As the General and Rainsford are talking about hunting General Zaroff reveals that hunting animals does not interest him anymore. The general said “We will have some capital hunting, you and I” (Connell 6). This statement makes Rainsford nervous because the General says he does not hunt animals anymore but he still hunts a very dangerous game.

Sir Gawain succeeded in upholding his virtues and the Chivalric Code countless times throughout the story. One of the earliest signs of chivalry Sir Gawain shows can be seen at King Arthur’s court, where the Green Knight first appeared before the Knights and challenged them to a game. Sir Gawain shows courage by bravely accepting the challenge, but he also shows humility by praising the other knights and degrading himself by saying, “I am the weakest, I know, and the feeblest of wit, and to tell the truth, there would be the least loss in my life.” (Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Pearl Poet, pg. 8)
