* The Hero may be [[SmallTownBoredom dissatisfied with the ordinary]] and express a desire for adventure. In musicals this can be expressed through an IWantSong.

* '''Road of Trials''': the path out of the Belly of the Whale. Usually the meat of the story; ''The Writer's Journey'' calls it ''Tests, Allies, Enemies'', while [[TheSevenBasicPlots Booker]] goes into detail on different types of tests (deadly terrain, monsters, temptations, deadly opposites, and a journey to the underworld). Stops along the way might include:

Compare Campbell's description of the journey with Booker's ''TheSevenBasicPlots'', especially the plots of ''Overcoming the Monster'', ''The Quest'', and ''Voyage and Return''. Like Campbell, Booker invests a lot of symbolism in the various elements, to the point where messing up the symbolism kills the story for him (for example, he calls ''StarWars'' flawed because they rescued the princess way before they killed the BigBad, when ideally those should happen at the same time, since the death of the Monster ''causes'' the release of the Anima).

* '''Crossing the Return Threshold'''. Sometimes a fight against the forces of the {{Muggle}} world, which the Hero wins thanks to help from his {{Muggle}} allies. This is where the PostClimaxConfrontation happens, as the remaining antagonistic forces have followed the Hero beyond the threshold and attacked him at a time when the plot should be wrapping up. In the absence of any action, it may be a BoringReturnTrip instead, a chance for the Hero to reflect on what he's gained and experienced through his journey.

The pattern of the Hero's Journey can be found in shows ranging from ''Franchise/StarTrek'' to ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''. George Lucas claims to have used it as a guide when writing ''StarWars''. Traditionally, the Hero's Journey was cyclic; a female Hero's Journey is more likely to be cyclic than a male's. ''Buffy The Vampire Slayer'' fits this to a tee; the movie is the first cycle, and each season roughly corresponds to one additional cycle. The ''VideoGame/{{Journey}}'' game intentionally fits this model exactly, even referring specific steps in the soundtrack's titles.

The concept of the Hero's Journey was described by mythologist Joseph Campbell in his book ''TheHeroWithAThousandFaces'' and refined by Christopher Vogler in his book ''The Writer's Journey''.
