* Fenton Crackshell from ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' was extremely good at counting, which is how he became Scrooge's accountant. But he often screwed up everything else, and he also was a dork, who had grown up in a trailer park. And when he gets a girlfriend, he becomes painfully hen-pecked. And yet, he was the super hero Gizmoduck, and he also saved the day four times without his Gizmoduck suit!

Nowadays, an {{antihero}} is usually thought of as a badass, [[SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids bitter]], [[HatesEveryoneEqually misanthropic]], [[BloodKnight violent]], {{sociopathic|Hero}} angry person, but this is a recent enough development to be known as a NinetiesAntiHero. For much of history, the term ''antihero'' referred to a character type that is in many ways the opposite of this.

See also PunchClockHero. Compare SuperLoser and TragicHero. Contrast with TheAce and NinetiesAntiHero, but see also ByronicHero. A {{sidekick}} to a classical hero that otherwise fits the role of the trope would be TheLancer.
