The only real heroic character I adore.
I'm thinking some people are missing the idea of what The Hero is in this thread. Spike's a pretty cool guy who flies swordfish and doesn't afraid of anything, but I'd hesitate to call him heroic. Everything he does is self-serving (though not necessarily selfish), growing and expanding as a character, but not really filling the hero role. Technically, I wouldn't consider anybody in Bebop a hero in the strictest sense, though Jet probably comes the closest. Similarly, Nia Teppelin is a good person with a firm resolve and dedication, but in my mind doesn't really come close to the heroic archetype.
" wrote:A hero (Ancient Greek: ἥρως, hērōs), in Greek mythology and folklore, was originally a demigod, their cult being one of the most distinctive features of ancient Greek religion. Later, hero (male) and heroine (female) came to refer to characters who, in the face of danger and adversity or from a position of weakness, display courage and the will for self sacrifice – that is, heroism – for some greater good, originally of martial courage or excellence but extended to more general moral excellence.
