I have looked up these words and I am now trying ot understand the difference between An Main Character A Protagonist an Antagonist a Deutragonist a Tritagonist The questions is Is an antagonist called an antagonist because he dies or is it because he reappears again in with a different look in another conflict like the sequel The Terminator? and should a Main Character be called an MC if he or she is om minute surviving a story or another minute dying at the end like in the Titanic Film or Gladiators. What I am trying to say shouldn't a title be given distinctively to various characters because they consistantly do one thing and one thing only. What I am trying to say only call someone an MC they will always expect to live. and call an MC something else if they are going to die. It helps make a distinction and keep consistancy with titles. MY next point: Aren't they all in the end lead characters or MCs of their own right only with different titles. It is like saying a queen/a king/a prince/a princess. They are all royals just calling themselves different titles. Although I am not getting the difference between and Antan and a Prota.
