    • Odysseus disguises self as an old beggar at first, then reveals himself
    • Hundreds of suitors vs. Odysseus + a few
    • Athena imbues Odysseus with supernatural strength
    • Odysseus and co. defeat suitors, with only a few superficial injuries
    • Kuchiki Byakuya
    • As the fight begins, Ichigo hides his true power

  • 12. Conclusion
    • Through this analysis, several recurring elements have been articulated. Since one work was written during ancient Greek times, and another was written in modern-day Japan, it is most likely that these elements define a number of Jung’s archetypes.
