A hero is Ignorant of the Call when he doesn’t know that he is, in fact, TheHero. Everybody around him knows that the character is TheChosenOne, but he, himself, just can’t see it. He fights the good fight and takes heroic actions… but it doesn’t 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 “[[ImNotAHeroIm I’m not a hero]]” (or a variant thereof) is often heard, along with ThinkNothingOfIt.

There are many types of heroes that have this as their character trait.

In addition, since the CallToAdventure is either not overt at all, or else parallels the Hero’s actions so well that the two only seem to connect by coincidence, it is entirely possible for the hero to never realize that their actions have some larger, plot-related importance.

* Ash Ketchum of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'', at least in the movies. He likes to think of himself simply as a Pokémon Trainer, but time after time he stumbles into situations where it's clear only he could save the day. It's {{lampshade|Hanging}}d in ''Anime/{{Pokemon 2000}}'', when the heroes realize that the phrase "The world shall turn to ash" didn't mean it would die, but the world would turn to ''Ash'' for help. His response? "Right now, I kinda wish that my mom named me Bob instead of Ash."

* Franchise/{{Superman}}. Compared to other superheroes, he does what he does because it was the right thing to do, not because he has any obligation to do so. [[Franchise/TheFlash Barry Allen]] is much the same way to the point where he was helping fight crime as a forensic scientist long before he even received his powers.
