  2. 2. FNBE 0413 Kelvin Ng 0315081 ENGL 0205 Story behind Heroes Everyone want to be the chosen one, working hard all day long doing work or study just to achieve a grade so that they can stand at the top of the world wishing to be a hero. ‘Hero is not the one who can fight physically but also mentally.’ by Jackie Chan. After I watched Wreck-It Ralph and How to Train Your Dragon, I learned something from the movie and redefine the meaning of heroes. Both of the main character sharing the samepersonalities, make changes, sacrifice for others and educate themselves. Both of the main character ,Ralph from Wreck-It Ralph and Hiccup from How to Train Your Dragon wishing to be a hero since they were born, they are regular person just like others. In the movie, they realize that being a hero wasn’t an easy task, it’s a test. Heroes are not born to be hero, they are forged. They are forged through practice, through preparation, through study and through circumstance. Somehow, they have different positive personalities from others such as kind, loving, hardworking, courage, lucky and etc. that made them special from others. These kinds of personalities made them positive person and helped them to develop themselves into a hero. Personalities affected them and chased their obstacles away. Then, both of them have their goal to achieve as a hero. In order to achieve their goal as to become a hero, they never afraid to made a changed. Sometimes, we have to follow the right way instead of following majority just like what Ralph and Hiccup did. At first, they were afraid to make changes for their
  3. 3. FNBE 0413 Kelvin Ng 0315081 ENGL 0205 life they forgot that they always have options and isolated themselves from others. They always ask everyone for their opinion so that they don’t have to take the responsibility for making the decision but when the thing happen, they make up their mind and take their responsibility for the decision they made. Like the Spiderman said, It’s the choices make us what we are and we can always choose to do what’s right. Otherwise, they always sacrifice themselves to help someone that in needs. Instead of being kind to themselves, they did something for someone without any hesitation. They don’t choose to who to help and being a listener for those who need.They always being kind to others instead of themselves, sacrifice without asking for any return. Ralph didn’t ask anything from the girl, Vanellope to win the race and sacrificed his only medal in his life. While Hiccup spend most of his time making friend with his dragon, Toothless instead of learning how to fight a dragonand kill them, without great fighting skills he was isolated by his friend. Anyhow, both of them achieve their goal with something in return, pride and friendship that is more valuable than anything in the world. For both of the movie, they end with happy ending. Ralph and Hiccup didn’t really have what they wanted for but they learned a lesson and earn something that is more than their expectation. They have compassion and take caring people around them. They love their friend like how much Hiccup loves his dragon, Toothless and how much Ralph loves his friend, Venellope. In addition, they educate themselves, studying their enemy and surrounding so that they can react instantly like what Ralph did to create a bug in the game in order to let
  4. 4. FNBE 0413 Kelvin Ng 0315081 ENGL 0205 Venellope win the race while Hiccup made and modify artificial wing for his dragon, Toothless. Words come easy but when it came to reality, a lot of people are afraid to be a hero. Just like what Christopher Reeve said, a hero is an ordinary individual who finds strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles. You never know who you are until you decide who you aregoing to be.
