This is one of the big ones boys an Archetype so profound that while multiple examples may exist on this earth at a given time only one can be present in a single culture. This was never supposed to happen but a character for whatever reason rises through the minds of fans and writers and takes shape. Distinguished from the typical archetype in that while many may imitate it consciously or unconsciously its impossible to truly reverse engineer and all attempts are doomed to fail. May be polarizing and possess awe inspiring power possibly even provoking fear in those that gave them life. Since so few strong examples exist in each culture Monotypes often count as Unknown Archetypes. related tropes Archetype, Character Archetype, Unknown Archetype
