I don't really get how Elizabeth Swann is the main protagonist. If anything, Will Turner is the protagonist as the first three movies are his character development. Why does someone insist that Elizabeth is The Hero and not The Chick?
I don't think The Hero has to be the main protagonist.
But still, Elizabeth is not the protagonist. She is the tritagonist. The movies take place from her POV, but they are not actually about her. Will is the protagonist as the story actually is about him. Jack is the dueteragonist as he's the actually The Hero and the most notable character, but is only the secondary focus of the story. I don't know where the idea that Elizabeth is the protagonist came from, but it's got to go.
I actually found this on the Pirates wikia.
So it seems that two of the screenwriters say that Elizabeth is the protagonist, but what of everyone else? While the producer's words would make seem that she is the protagonist, all he says is that she has a major character arc. I still insist that Elizabeth is a tritagonist. I will make the changes tonight.
That is interesting but is Word of God, and we base our troping more on the story portrayal than on Word of God.
Why are the Character Alignments for each character deleted?
Because they tend to be nothing but bait for edit wars in settings where they're not explicitly used.
