Bland hero, Quirky sidekick
The hero is a bland character, and the hero's sidekick is a much more interesting and developed character

Typically in works of fiction, the hero tends to have less emotion and character traits than some other characters. The reason for this is that the hero is none other than that: a hero. If the hero had a quirky personality or anything distracting from their heroism, that would take away from their Incorruptible Pure Pureness. Cue the hero's sidekick, a character who can vanquish evil and still have a strong personality and character flaws.

Examples:

  • Link and Midna.
    • Link and anyone, for that matter.
  • Harry Potter and Ron Weasley.
  • Mario and Luigi.
