** The Masked Hero knows that Lord Darkspike won't harm innocent people just to flush the Hero out, so he/she stays in hiding.
** But a random villager steps forward and claims to be The Masked Hero.
** The villager stands tall, waiting for others to do the same, but nobody does. He tries to recant as the soldiers drag him away.
** Aghast, the real Hero and his/her compatriots plan to all come forth as "The Masked Hero".
** But the villager was a plant by Lord Darkspike, to get the Hero and allies to do just that.
** It backfires, and when the Hero and allies all step forward, [[YouAreNotAlone so do hundreds of complete strangers]].
