** Jet too. At first, he seems like a romantic, handsome, vigilante freedom fighter, but he's willing to go to horrifying extremes to defeat the Fire Nation. Later, he goes straight. [[spoiler: Unfortunately, the GenreSavvy viewer would know, RedemptionEqualsDeath.]]

* KnightOfCerebus: Contrasting a more ideal hero heroics, an Anti Hero's more unscrupulous acts can [[DarkerAndEdgier darken]] the [[CerebusSyndrome mood]] and [[GreyingMorality morality]] especially in lighthearted works.

* Most of the main characters of ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'' qualify for this, with the possible exception of [[VillainProtagonist Malory]]. They're barely competent, borderline sociopathic, and tend to cause more problems than they solve, but they're still usually on the side of good and are very much capable of saving the day - albeit by the skin of their teeth. This even extends to when they [[spoiler: form a drug cartel]], since they still wind up saving an unknown country from a nerve gas attack.

There are just as many variations on Anti-Heroes as there are normal heroes. Some common attributes are: [[TheQuietOne rarely speaking]], being a [[IntroversionTropes loner]], either [[CelibateHero extreme celibacy]] or [[AnythingThatMoves extreme promiscuity]], [[FreudianExcuse father issues]], occasional BadDreams and [[TroubledBackstoryFlashback flashbacks]] relating to a DarkAndTroubledPast that can take many forms depending on the Anti-Hero in question; and being able to tell the story of their life through any Music/NickCave song. Some won't SaveTheVillain, but they will ShootTheDog, and they will ''not'' [[ThouShaltNotKill hesitate to kill]] anyone who threatens them.

* ''Fanfic/SecretWar'', a Warhammer40k fan fic, that follows Attelus Kaltos, a mercenary apprentice assassin, who is so morally grey in his actions, he could even be interpreted as a VillainProtagonist.

* Prince Zuko from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' is something of an antihero, albeit he's the [[{{Deuteragonist}} secondary character]]. Dark and misunderstood, Zuko operates under the sole motive of regaining his lost honor, and not always admirably so. [[spoiler:Although he turns himself around in the end.]]

Dark and misunderstood, Zuko operates under the sole motive of regaining his lost honor, and not always admirably so. [[spoiler:Although he turns himself around in the end.]] Since then, he fully plays the anti hero role straight--he is impatient, uptight, and he thinks ideals should be forgone when facing the big threat]].
