The Standard Shonen Hero
is a character archetype most common in Anime and Manga, which is the standard for a Shonen Hero.
They includes the following:
- The character has spiky anime hair.
- The character is the Messiah.
- The character is a Determinator.
- The character is stupid. Or at least Book Dumb.
- The character is loud.
- The character has a strong bond with his Nakama.
- The character is very forgiving and probably recruits many of his former villains into his band of True Companions.
is the Trope Maker
and the Trope Codifier
, but not the Ur Example
- Son Goku is the Trope Namer.
- Ichigo Kurosaki. While he's actually very intelligent, he is still a loud mothed hero with Anime hair and a strong
connection with his True Companions
