James Byron Huggins is a novelist.

Works by James Byron Huggins provide examples of:

  • Fearless Fool: Done unintentionally in most James Byron Huggins novels. Even though most of his protagonists are Badass Normals, when your opponents are ancient Egyptian undead sorcerors, giant shape-shifting Nephilim, prehistoric Hulks, a genetically-engineered dragon, and Satan himself, for them fear is never the appropriate response, and every time, they win against these threats, but the first two acts they don't react with fear.

  • Invincible Hero: Any protagonist from a James Byron Huggins novel. All of them (with the exception of Longinus in Nightbringer) are Badass Normals who no matter what they are facing — superhuman nephilim (Nightbringer), a genetically-engineered government-built dragon (Leviathan), squads of highly-trained Mooks (The Reckoning), prehistoric Hulk analogs (Hunter), or an ancient Egyptian sorcerer (Sorcerer) — they will always contemptuously beat them.
  • Lowered Monster Difficulty: The monster in any James Byron Huggins novel. In the first act, the genetically-engineered super-dragon will be destroying tanks and if it escapes it could destroy cities, while the third act it can be killed by some strongman with a viking axe and a couple of grenades. Same thing in Hunter; the monster rips apart heavily fortified labs and squads of armed guards only to die from being lit on fire in single combat with the hero.

  • Our Dragons Are Different: In Leviathan, an evil company actually genetically engineers a dragon from komodo dragon DNA.
  • Real Men Love Jesus: Action Protagonist Thor (Leviathan) and Longinus (Nightbringer) are both devoted Christians with extensive insight into the nature of God and Satan, good and evil. The protagonists in the other novels are heavily implied to be be Christian or convert over the course of the novel.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: In the novel Hunter, the hero deliberately destroys the Magic Antidote that bestows immortality, instant healing, and the cure for all diseases. It was going to be used by the bad guys, but still...

How well does it match the trope?
