Hmmmm... Is there really such a thing as an `anti-hero`? I mean when you look at the concept, aren't there more characters then not in fiction that could easily take on the title, even though they're supposedly a `hero`. It's fairly easy to see in various scenarios where the `hero` wants to make his job easier, decides who they wil trust/distrust, plans how they will solve a problem, backstab others or be up-front, decides whether death is needed or not and so on... I just find when a character starts to contemplate and actually think over these ideas in some stories (`classics`, contemporaries, movies, character/story based computer games), that they are no more hero then the guy on the opposite side who's made their own choices about who they will help to win/destroy in the end. You've even got the occasional character who takes everyone on or leaves everyone to their fate. What's up with that? I know what I think of the concept. Question is: what do you think of it and does it exist?
