I want to mention his seeming confusion on the word "protagonist", as he struggles to describe the main characters of Starship Troopers. His use of the term seems to indicate that he thinks protagonist means 'hero'.

Does anyone know what trope this should be?

That doesn't look like a trope to me...

Well, "protagonist" is frequently used for "hero", so I would not say so.

Except that we have the trope Villain Protagonist specifically for those instances where the main character is a villain.
