''AllLovingHero:'' This type of hero cherishes everyone and everything. As such, helping others isn't anything they need to think about because to them, they may as well be helping a friend.\\

''TheAtoner:'' This type of hero is trying to fight the good fight to make up for mistakes they made in the past. For them it isn't just their drive to help but also their feeling that it's the least they could do.\\

''TheCape:'' This type of hero does good for the sake of doing good because that's what heroes do. They will always help because they want to be the hero and for them it's just part of the job.\\
''HumbleHero:'' This type of hero doesn't see what he does as special or unique. They honestly think they're just regular people and that it's not a big deal to help others.\\

''NiceGuy:'' This type of hero helps people because it's who they are. They're just plain nice people and help others because GoodFeelsGood.\\

''TheParagon:'' This type of hero sees doing the right thing as a responsibility that everyone should honor. They believe it's within the ability of everyone to be a hero and teach others that doing the right thing should be natural.\\

A hero is Ignorant of the Call when he doesnít know that he is, in fact, TheHero. Everybody around him knows that the character is TheChosenOne, but he, himself, just canít see it. He fights the good fight and takes heroic actionsÖ but it doesnít seem heroic to him, nor does he think he was destined to do them. He simply does what he must because it is in his nature to act in that manner. When dealing with this sort of protagonist, the phrase ď[[ImNotAHeroIm Iím not a hero]]Ē (or a variant thereof) is often heard, along with ThinkNothingOfIt. Donít you believe it for a second.

* Manga/{{Naruto}} starts off this way. By now, though, it's common knowledge.

* Anakin Skywalker might have been this in the {{Prequel}} trilogy of ''Franchise/StarWars''; it doesn't exactly make it clear.
* Neo thinks The Oracle [[ExactWords tells]] him he's not The One in ''Film/TheMatrix''. He then denies he's The One to the surviving members of the team despite him fitting the role exactly.

** Intentionally {{enforced|Trope}} by the Wachowski Brothers as they're trying to pack as much symbolism and double meaning they can into the film; which is why the Oracle [[CrypticConversation doesn't actually say]] Neo isn't The One, or correct his interpretation of her words, because you can't be TOLD whether or not you're The One.

Differs from MissedTheCall. Often overlaps with AccidentalHero. Contrast HeelRealization, where someone is ignorant of the fact that they're a ''villain''.

* ''Manga/OnePiece'': Monkey D. Luffy has taken down tyrannical presences and dangerous pirates, a malevolent self proclaimed god, and is currently pretty much taking on a government of well intentioned extremists, all while doing only what he wants to do.

* Darryl from the ''Literature/YoungWizards'' series of novels pretty much epitomizes this trope; [[spoiler:he is a living repository of magic literally sent by God to be a fountain of power for the magic of the human race]]. He remains blissfully unaware of the fact, mostly because [[spoiler: the knowledge of that fact would be lethal to him. If he ever became aware of what he was, he'd die. Just like that.]]

* Rincewind of ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' fits this to a T. Despite being a plaything of the gods continually saving people, countries of the Disc, he seems unwilling to accept that he has anything but bad luck.
** Ironic, considering he has been chosen as the personal CosmicPlaything of the entity known as "the Lady". Or perhaps not, since (as the one with the Lady's favor) he gets both the good ''and'' the bad luck, which is good for his continued survival, but not necessarily good for his psyche.
** Carrot, of the City Guard. He does what's right, because that's what he's supposed to. If you mention his special sword, odd birth-mark and that prophecy about the true king returning, he'll just brush it off. (Of ''course'', [[ObfuscatingStupidity it very well may just be an act]]).
