* ''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 mutant-kind 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/GleahanAndTheKnavesOfIndustry:'' ZigZagged with Gleahan. He definitely brings everyone together, and he's the only one on the team with a sword, but [[spoiler:his friends have to rescue ''him'' from capture.]]

* Perseus in both versions of ''Film/ClashOfTheTitans''. While he is more DarkerAndEdgier in the 2010 reboot, his mission is to [[SaveThePrincess save Princess Andromeda]] from the [[SeaMonster Kraken]] and in ''Wrath of the Titans'', he is the only one that can stop the end of the world being caused by the [[SealedEvilInACan Titan Kronos]].


Added DiffLines:

* Connor [=MacLeod=] for the ''Franchise/{{Highlander}}'' movie series. Really, those with the [=MacLeod=] surname are inevitably going to serve as protagonists (the series is titled ''Highlander'' after all), but Connor was the original one.

* ''Franchise/UltraSeries'': Whoever is the Ultra's human host/form -- always a brave and compassionate young man who sees the best in people and desires to make the world a better place. The Ultras themselves certainly share many of the same sentiments.

The Hero is most [[AlwaysMale often male]] and TheChick is [[SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan usually in love with him]] (unless she's The Hero or his sister and sometimes [[BrotherSisterIncest even]] {{t|wincest}}hen), as are [[EvenTheGuysWantHim any other members]] who happen to be women. The primary romantic plot in the team will be between The Hero and TheChick, with TheLancer sometimes [[LoveTriangle rounding out a triangle]]. The Hero might also be a ChasteHero or a CelibateHero as an additional complication to romantic subplots. If the Hero has too many of the "positive" qualities listed above, they may degenerate into a MartyStu. If they're too generic, then they're an EveryMan (but please note that the EveryMan does not have to be this trope or TheProtagonist). They are sometimes the OnlySaneMan trying to keep TheTeam together because they live in DysfunctionJunction. Because TheLancer is, by definition, The Hero's foil, The Hero and TheLancer usually have a special chemistry, either a BashBrothers relationship or RedOniBlueOni. They are often [[TheRival rivals]] with a strong mutual respect for each other, and are sometimes HeterosexualLifePartners. They are likely to argue about who is TheLeader, but as stated above, this role usually goes to the hero.

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 intelligent]] 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.

* Parodied in ''Film/JumanjiWelcomeToTheJungle'' with Smolder Bravestone, who is clearly supposed to be the game's main protagonist since he has [[TheAce the best stats of all other playable characters with no weaknesses]] and [=NPCs=] refer mostly to him in dialogue. He is such over-the-top example it just hurts.

* The ''Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica'''s original line consisted of seven characters who all fit this type in their own comics. Franchise/{{Superman}}, Franchise/{{Batman}}, Franchise/WonderWoman, Franchise/TheFlash, GreenLantern, Comicbook/{{Aquaman}}, and ComicBook/MartianManhunter. [=Superman=] would traditionally be '''THE''' Hero in this situation but, for example, GreenLantern Kyle Rayner filled this role as a sort of KidHero during Morrison's run, being new and being a replacement for the League's original Lantern Hal Jordan. In lineups with only one of these seven, that hero tends to be The Hero.
