saw an error under the webcomic tab in the "Homestuck" one. It said there were 3 heroes and then listed 4 examples, so I am changing it from 3 to 4.
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' has three: [[ThePollyanna John Egbert]] for the pre-Scratch human session, [[KnightInSourArmor Karkat Vantas]] for the post-Scratch Troll session, [[{{Meganekko}} Jane Crocker]] for the [[AlternateUniverse post-Scratch human session]], and [[PostHumousCharacter Meenah Peixes]] for the [[OurGhostsAreDifferent pre-Scratch Troll session]].

The Hero is a gender-neutral role. Noting that it's more common for it to be male and that it's "traditional" for it to be female only if all other roles are female is kind of pointless and doesn't add anything.
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.

** The Prequel Trilogy makes it clear Obi-Wan Kenobi is the hero, not Anakin Skywalker. Obi-Wan is constantly praised as the ideal Jedi and a stalwart defender of the innocent, while Anakin has his own fair share of issues that keep from achieving his heroic destiny. [[ForegoneConclusion We all know well how it turns out.]]

** ''Film/StarWarsTheForceAwakens'' gives us a new hero for the Sequel Trilogy, although the identity of TheHero is a bit of a spoiler: [[spoiler:Rey, who turns out to be a Force-sensitive Jedi-to-be in the same vein as Luke Skywalker from the original trilogy. The ending makes it clear that the next two films will be her story]].

* ''{{Roswell}}'': Max Evans fits this to a T. His teammates frequently {{Lampshades}} it regularly asking him "What do we do now, Max?" even if sometimes they openly criticize him for his "passively watching" instead of taking action sooner, something that doesn't change when he's actually declared the king of his planet.
