* NobleMaleRoguishMale: Rama and Laxmana, respectively, the former being serene, wise & forgiving while the latter is more impetuous, quick-tempered and has a good bullshit detector.

* EarnYourHappyEnding: The Original Six-Khanda Version; The struggle was not fruitless. Rama saves Sita and after the ''Agni Pariksha'' scene, they are crowned and live happily ever after. The DownerEnding is from the Seventh Khanda which is a much later addition.

** Rama is easily the greatest archer of all in Hindu literature. Even Arjuna of the {{Mahabharata}} doesn't quite match him there.

* LoopholeAbuse: {{Big Bad}} Ravana wishes to never be defeated by any God, making only an exception for humans since he thinks they don't amount to much. Of course, the (''technically'') human Rama defeats him.

* AccidentalMurder: [[spoiler: A young Dasaratha accientally killed a boy named Shravan Kumar, by mistaking him for a deer and shooting him with his arrows. Shravan's dad, a blind hermit, curses him: since Dasaratha killed his son, albeit by accident, he will also die without having his son by his side... Which is what happens after he banishes Rama to keep his word to Kaikeyi.]]

** Ravana himself, strangely enough. He is bound by a personal code of conduct, and never forces himself on Sita during the years in captivity, although this might at least be partly attributable to a previous curse [[note]]Ravana tried to marry a woman engaged to his stepson Nalakubara. Nalakubara was angry and said that if Ravana married a woman against her will all of his ten heads would break into pieces[[/note]]. Ravana acquired his great power through performing austerities in honour of Shiva.

The ''Ramayana'' is a testament to the belief that good will always triumph over evil. Its characters are also what Indians believed to be "ideal" - ie. Rama is the perfect man, Sita is the perfect wife, etc. It has been adapted countless times and reproduced in India, {{Indonesia}}, {{Thailand}}, and most of South East Asia. It is subject to tons of AlternativeCharacterInterpretation and SadlyMythtaken. It also bears some similarities to ''Literature/TheOdyssey'' and ''Literature/JourneyToTheWest''.
