The antihero or antiheroine is a leading character in a story who lacks traditional heroic qualities such as idealism, courage, nobility, fortitude, moral goodness, and altruism.

Whereas the classical hero is larger than life, antiheroes are typically inferior to the reader in intelligence, dynamism or social purpose, giving rise to what Robbe-Grillet called “these heroes without naturalness as without identity”.
