Traditionally, this role will not be filled by a woman unless [[AmazonBrigade all the other roles are already women]] (as is often the case in {{Anime}}). If so, there might not be a [[TheChick Chick]] in the group although there ''might'' be TheOneGuy.

The Hero does not HAVE to be TheLeader, or the most intelligent. This is usually justified by them being [[KidHero the youngest]], [[IdiotHero most inexperienced]], and/or newest member of the team. Thus, their more senior teammates may reasonably see them as the TagalongKid or the SixthRanger, even if they're clearly [[TheProtagonist the central protagonist]] to the audience. They may even be something of TheLoad if they're a MouthyKid or TheFool, but don't worry -- in time, they will reveal their great potential, eventually [[MagneticHero swaying]] friend [[DefeatMeansFriendship and foe]] alike to their cause. Even if they need [[CharacterDevelopment significant growing up]] to reach that point. Eventually, TheLeader they may very well become.

* In the Literature/XWingSeries books, there are always two to three primary protagonists and viewpoint characters. One or two, depending on whether this book is part of MichaelStackpole's run or an AaronAllston novel - and ''which'' AaronAllston book - is the suboordinate who experiences more CharacterDevelopment, goes through personal revelations and a personal plotline, gets beat up, and is generally a good person but not quite "pure", often having some dark guilt, flaw, or secret. The other primary protagonist is always [[AscendedExtra Wedge Antilles]], who leads, bounces back from setbacks, has a plotline that isn't really all that personal, and is rarely wrong.
