Did I say I was a fucking hero, you piece of shit?!
~ James Heller, in response to Gentek scientist Roland taunting him for killing thousands just to get to him.

An Anti-Hero (also spelled Anti Hero) is a character who has a number of flaws that make them different from the traditional heroes of fiction and folklore - Anti-Heroes can be selfish, rude or even criminal in nature but will play the part of a hero under certain conditions: whether it be for money, fame, and glory (such as Wario) or because they don't have a choice. However, they don't have to be selfish, rude, or precisely criminal, they can be polite and nice in nature, due to the part they're neither good nor evil, but in between the two alignments.

Types of Anti Heroes that are featured in this wiki often, if not always, are of two types:

  • Unscrupulous anti heroes: They are very ruthless and act in a morally questionable way, but have noble or morally neutral goals.
  • Nominal heroes: They are fighting in the heroic side, but they don't have heroic intentions at all. A good example is Bowser from the Super Mario Bros. franchise, who had allied briefly with Mario and their party to stop villains who are far worse or more dangerous than him, but only because he considers himself the only one authorized to kidnap the Princess or take over the world, or simply to recover his castle.
