This guy is a [[TitleDrop hero]], pure and simple. They're almost always right, are a friend to all their teammates, and [[IdealHero morally superior]]--''without'' the usual flaws of GoodIsDumb or WellIntentionedExtremist, unless it's a comedic work. They have a well-rounded skill set. They're not as [[SuperStrength strong]] as TheBigGuy, or as [[SuperIntelligence smart]] as TheSmartGuy, or as [[TheSocialExpert sensitive and socially adept]] as TheChick, but they're close. They can personally accomplish a variety of goals, but their real superpower is getting [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters the whole diverse set of personalities]] to [[TheKirk focus and pull together]]. They'll always know who to ask for help, and when--and ''usually'' how. Most often, they will be TheProtagonist but [[SupportingProtagonist there are exceptions]] [[VillainProtagonist to this rule]]. Just as often, they will be TheLeader or otherwise the [[MagneticHero shining star]] that holds the RagtagBunchOfMisfits together, but [[SupportingLeader there are exceptions to this as well]]. In a [[PowerWalk team lineup]], they will be front and center.
