A related concept is the 'ectype', a distorted or flawed version of the archetype. For example, Batman is archetypical. He's a rich man who dedicates himself to anonymously fighting crime (protecting society) with a variety of gadgets. Many of the characters in ''Comicbook/{{Watchmen}}'' are ectypes based on this archetype.

An Archetypal Character is a character who appears over and over in legends far and wide, even in cultures that have shut themselves off from the world. The [[OurVampiresAreDifferent blood drinking risen dead]] are an {{Archetype}} as almost every culture has come up with their own legends independent of each other. ''Series/{{Angel}}'' is an archetype: the tragic hero trying to overcome the evils of their past. [[TheTrickster Coyote]] is an archetype. [[XenaWarriorPrincess Xena]] is an archetype. Any of these may be disguised as a SpaceAlien.
