** This is especially prominent in ''Heroes 1'' and ''2'': the only non-humans in the Knight faction are a few scattered heroes, none of the troops have any magical abilities, and the heroes themselves only have them if a spellbook is bought. In ''Heroes 2'', victory was achieved with the help of the rather magical Sorceress and Wizard factions, but in ''Heroes 1'', Lord Ironfist won through on his own.

Arguably the most popular character of the entire series, Sandro was the only undead hero of the first game (as a Warlock). A [[OurLichesAreDifferent lich]] with the classical necromancers' obsession to TakeOverTheWorld, Sandro was nearly successful in doing so by basically planning the ''entire'' events of the third game's campaign, as seen in the prequel The Shadow of Death, thus being the mastermind behind the invasion of Erathia. Unfortunately for him, his first plan, involving two [[ArtifactOfDoom Artifacts of Doom]], was foiled by a group of four heroes (including Crag Hack and Gelu), and the credit for his second plan was stolen by the lich he was planning to control as TheManBehindTheMan. Sandro make a ContinuityCameo in V and VI, being regularly mentionned as TheMentor of Markal and several necromancers, sadly KilledOffForReal.

%%* TheChessmaster

to:

%%* TheChessmaster* TheChessmaster: The first real one in the HOMM franchise, every previous BigBad being more the "amass troops, smash the good guys" variety.


Added DiffLines:

* MacguffinDeliveryService: Pulls this off with ''four'' heroes simultaneously during ''Shadow of Death''.

* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent:

to:

* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: His voice-actor in IV puts on a very... ''strange'' accent, apparently to mark his foreign-ness.

Added DiffLines:

* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Does this a few times in IV to spy on his enemies; his preferred form is a [[MorphicResonance blue]] parrot.

%%* AntiHero: Type III.




to:

* UnscrupulousHero: He's not particularly altruistic (the stuff the "civilized" world has thrown at him, who can blame him?), but he's more interested in surviving than any TakeOverTheWorld scheme, and he almost never does things ForTheEvulz.[[note]]One event during his campaign does have him reviving a knight's corpse and having it chase around the attendant monks as a prank, but this is a Quest event rather than a script event, so it can theoretically be done by any hero.[[/note]]

%%* IChooseToStay

to:

%%* IChooseToStay* IChooseToStay: Why? In the man's own words:

Added DiffLines:

* HonorBeforeReason: He stumbles across a vicious pirate's crew while they're all sleeping, and contemplates killing them then and there, but - with Tarnum's [[IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim subtle nudging]] - wakes them and gives them the chance to surrender first.

%%* BadassBookworm: As his adoptive father Tarnum, well...

to:

%%* * AltarDiplomacy: [[EnforcedTrope Enforces]] this to end a blood-feud between two tribes he's absorbed into the new barbarian nation. It's never mentioned exactly how well this shook out.

BadassBookworm: As his adoptive father Enforced by Tarnum, well...who routinely makes him read ancient books as well as practice with sword and axe.

%%* EarthShatteringKaboom

to:

%%* EarthShatteringKaboom* ElitesAreMoreGlamorous: A HighFantasy version of this - he commands the Forestguard company, an Erathian unit that specializes in guerrilla warfare.



%%* KillItWithFire

to:

%%* KillItWithFire* MilitaryBrat: More-or-less raised by the Erathian military, who found him (apparently orphaned) as an infant.



%%* RainOfArrows

to:

%%* RainOfArrows
* RaisedByNatives: A slight inversion of the usual formula - this time, it's the NobleSavage-coded (half-)elf being raised by the "civilized" humans, with all the associated baggage.
