Compare TheHerosJourney. Though separate and distinct tropes, the two don't just overlap, they have adjoining apartments and raid each other's refrigerators [[{{Seinfeld}} Kramer]]-style. The main difference is that a quest has a stated goal, and the focus is mainly on the adventures had along the way to that goal; a hero's journey tends to be undertaken in response to events thrust upon the hero(es), and focuses on the personal growth of the characters as they find ([[ScrewDestiny or overcome]])their destiny.

Christopher Booker's ''TheSevenBasicPlots'' separates ''The Quest'' from ''Overcoming the Monster''. While both involve a journey, the ''Overcoming the Monster'' plot is far more focused on heading straight for the [[BigBad Monster]] (with perhaps a side quest for [[AppliedPhlebotinum magic weapons]]), while ''The Quest'' concentrates on a variety of obstacles including Monsters, Temptations, [[ScyllaAndCharybdis Deadly Opposites]], and a Journey to TheUnderworld. (This probably indicates that if the heroes don't realize there's a BigBad to fight until after the halfway point, it's following ''The Quest'' plot.) Also, ''The Quest'' is the plot most likely to include companions (a small group, or just one companion - or, as with ''Literature/TheOdyssey'', a RedShirtArmy).
