He exemplified the ways of both a hero and a villain. However, it is my opinion that he is a villain. I believe this because he could be an extremely violent leader and because he never fully reigned over one of the places he conquered/ruled. He is a villain because he murdered thousands of people and soldiers from different nations. Alexander tortured many of his victims and then he killed them.
He also directly learns the lesson when he finds his brother dead. He thought he was triumphant when he killed the sniper he realized he didn’t win because he killed his brother. He also displays the theme when he shoots the lady. He tore the family that she belonged to apart, it may have helped him in the war, but overall it only made things

Caputo say aloud around his men “ I’m going to get those bastards,” (314). Caputo and his men believe they know where the two men are as Caputo has talked the men into getting after these two Viet Cong men. The men have to go to the Ville to find the men and are starting to worry if they were to get in trouble for doing something they are not supposed to do and not ordered to do.
The thing he wants to do the most, kill humans. “I am strong, I hunt the scum of the earth”(17). He only kills them because he wants to hunt something that can reason, something that can change its mind when faced with a life or death situation. “But they are men,” said Rainsford hotly. “Precisely,” said the general”(17).
Beatty, the man that goes up against Montag, is also Montag 's fire captain, later in the story Montag kills Beatty to survive.

In Quiet Strength by Tony Dungy and Nathan Whitaker, we learn how important respect is to him, in football and life. Tony treats everyone he interacts with respect. When he was a player he respected his coach’s decisions, even if he was upset and did not agree with the decision. We saw that when he got traded from the Steelers to the 49ers. He didn’t like it, but he still respected the coach’s decisions and did not take any anger out on them.
He gives everyone a 50/50 chance of life or death. Fate is what drives Chigurh and his actions to be the “winner” of the story. Quite possibly the worst example, morally, of Chigurh keeping his promise is at the end of the story when he kills Carla Jean, Llewellyn Moss’ wife. He had promised Moss that if he did not return the case to him being Chigurh, that he would kill Moss’ wife. He sure did that.

William Wallace was a greatly feared man by English troops for he was known as a brutal heartless knight who didn 't seem to believe in mercy. All of this pure anger and hatred for the English likely came from one of four deaths. Wallace 's father was said to be killed in a skirmish with English soldiers, Wallace murdered a noble Englishman before joining the resistance and he was then constantly hunted as an outlaw by the english, his love interest Marion was murdered by englishman, and his uncle was murdered in retaliation to Wallace 's actions against Edward I. Though seen as a hero with a brutal death, he may have been one of the cruelest and darkest characters in Scotland
