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.

** Steve "ComicBook/CaptainAmerica" Rogers, former leader of the Howling Commandos, (generally) the present-day leader of Comicbook/TheAvengers and the most [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment heroic hero]] in the MarvelUniverse. He tends to stand out, because Marvel is a ''big'' fan of the BeingGoodSucks trope and is well-known for its variety of (well-nuanced and varied) AntiHero, VillainProtagonist, FallenHero and [[TheAtoner reformed villain]] characters.
** Franchise/SpiderMan: If Steve Rogers is the [[AllLovingHero Soul]] of the Marvel heroes, Peter Parker is the [[IncorruptiblePurePureness Heart]]. We're talking about a guy who preaches the ideal of responsibility, pushes himself to his limits in the name of justice and morality and is able to rally even the most cynical of anti-heroes. Even Cap has expressed admiration at Spider-Man's heroism.

* ''Film/XMenFilmSeries'': Among the three main protagonists (Wolverine, Professor X and Magneto), Professor X is the most noble of the bunch. Logan is sometimes an AntiHero, and Erik is mostly a villain. The First Class trilogy explores three fundamental aspects of Charles Xavier: peace, hope and love. In ''Film/XMenFirstClass'', he represents serenity (which is a synonym for peace), and he averts WorldWarIII. In ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'', his younger self is a lost soul who gradually finds hope again, and this prevents a future where mutantkind is exterminated by Sentinels. In ''Film/XMenApocalypse'', he wields an ability which is just as powerful (if not more so) than his telepathy--ThePowerOfLove; he vanquishes a DestroyerDeity with it.
* ''Film/JamesBond'': Creator/PierceBrosnan's Bond was specifically catered to [[TheNineties '90s]] tastes and sensibilities in order appeal to the broadest audience possible (especially women, as the actor already had a built-in female fanbase from ''Series/RemingtonSteele''), so his 007 was devised as a "sensitive action hero."

Although Brosnan's average onscreen kill count is the highest in the franchise, revealing a more [[BeneathTheMask gentler side]] to his personality made his 007 more [[LoveableRogue sympathetic and accessible]] to casual '90s moviegoers.

** There are always two to three primary protagonists and viewpoint characters.

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.

Then the previously [[FullCircleRevolution oppressed people he helped to liberate go on a jihad]] and slaughtering sixty billion people in his name, and Paul is completely helpless to stop it.

After serving under Jeor Mormont, Qhorin Halfhand, and the wildlings, he has some serious CharacterDevelopment and emerges as a skilled warrior, a natural leader, and a dutiful man committed to his vows with a strong moral code and sense of justice that earns the admiration of his fellow brothers, who leads the raid on Craster's Keep and the Battle of Castle Black. By Season 6, he unquestionably is this role for the North storyline (having restored the Starks back to power) if not for the whole of Westeros, as he is the only leader aware of the White Walkers' danger, and wants to gather as many forces as possible to withstand their arrival.

The concept of TheHero is [[OlderThanDirt very old]] and every culture and peoples have had individuals they identified as heroes. On account of SocietyMarchesOn and ValuesDissonance, the notion of what the hero signifies has changed and diverged a great deal from the ancient world to the early modern world to the present day. Heroes in the ancient world were compelling because they embodied virtues and qualities common to the experience of people at the time (War, Violence, Survival) whereas later generations would seek idealized values from their heroes because of their desire and yearning for a better world.
