Almost inevitably, the hero will join La Resistance while the battle is already underway, and will grow to become a great champion in the fight against TheEmpire. After all, [[HollywoodHistory Hollywood usually]] [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeVillified romanticizes resistance fighters]]. There are two reasons. The first is rooted in America's origins as rebels fighting the English during UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution. The second is likewise UsefulNotes/WorldWarII where the conflict between the Resistance and UsefulNotes/NaziGermany fell, as close as it ever has, to clear divisions between right and wrong. In most cases in history and in real-life, resistance movements are complex and confusing events. A common mistake is to confuse resistance movements with revolutionary movements, when this is not always the case. Some resistance movements ''are'' revolutionary, seeking to install a new regime to displace the old. Revolutions needless to say [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized are complex, murky and at times brutal]] affairs. It has led in the past to the new regime forming [[MeetTheNewBoss the new government]] which [[FullCircleRevolution can be as bad or worse than the old.]]

In some cases, La Resistance may represent the [[TheRemnant last remnants]] of the reactionary or counter-revolutionary cronies of the old regime fighting against the Revolutionary Progressive Forces. Once re-installed, the Resistance "heroes" decide to {{Retcon}} the revolution and institute purges for the cause of revenge, and remind people why exactly they were toppled in the first place. In some cases, as it happened in some parts of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, the Resistance contains factions who want to restore the old regime and factions which want to bring a new regime, and these two factions might struggle during and after the war.
