Favorite type of hero

Now I know this isn't directly gaming related but I was bored and curious.

What's your favorite type of hero/ine? Like the classic hero/ine, tragic hero/ine, anti-hero/ine, etc?

What kind do you prefer the main character to be as in games or how do you make yourself in rpgs?
Yeah I'm a stalker what about it?

Hiro...no wait, Peter Patrelli...no definitely Hiro
ALL games should have a Single Player mode. I can always guarantee I want to play when I turn on my system. I can't guarantee others will at the same time.

The silent but deadly protagonist. On his own, he's dead. When given orders to do the impossible, he's deadly.

Also going for the Tragic hero. A hero that sacrifices everything for a bunch of ungrateful louts who turn on him when it's convenient. Then I get to have vengeance in the sequel.
Lords of Shadow 2 (02/25/2014) will be GoTY 2014 for PS3/360 and best H&S of the generation. Optional QTEs, 20 hours gameplay, epic story, and challenging!

Vic Mackey ("The Shield"), Will Graham (<u>Red Dragon</u>), Rusty Cohle ("True Detective"), Bruce Wayne (Batman), the Hallowed One (Dark Souls), Wesley Dodds (Sandman), Bud White (L.A. Confidential), Max Payne (Max Payne), and Dr. Tony Hill ("The Wire in the Blood"), just to name a few.

Basically, anyone whose strength is their weakness, and vice versa. Someone who gets the job done for the sake of others, but walks that fine line of morality. A person with reality based demons, and real life reactions, who is never infallible, but always driven.

Let me begin with saying I hate fairy tale, goody-two-shoes heroes. Who are like:

'Well this guy was about to kill hundreds of people but I've beat him so he'll learn his lesson this time... 3 time's the charm.'

Anti-heroes are annoying as they often are whiny emos who are being taken advantage of because of some sob story.

My favourite heroes are those that get things done and are willing to make sacrifices for the greater good and take responsibility for it.

Batman type.

He is a genius. He has unlimited resources. He definitely gets things done. He shows no mercy, but he doesn't kill.

Batman doesn't consider himself a hero. Batman doesn't expect anything in return.

No matter what people say about him, I have a lot of respect for his character. We need people like Batman in our world.
