The Messiah are the type of heroes that are seemed as the savior of mankind, and is cross between a Chosen One and a Pure of Heart. They are willing to sacrifice themselves for their friends, family, and the entire world itself to protect them/it, and is always forgiving their enemies if they deserve a chance of redemption. And sometimes a Chosen One may not always seem that nice wonders why it differs from a messiah. Some may even be reluctant to be some kind of savior, reasons vary from story to story. It came with two terms:
- All-Loving Hero: This character, simply put, loves everyone. Loves them with a deep, spiritual love that means they will shake heaven and earth, destroy gods and planets, bring nations to their knees, etc. for the person they just met yesterday. They will believe the best of everyone, and constantly give someone a second chance (though they will defeat the Big Bad). They repay cruelty with kindness and anger with calm. Kagome Higurashi and Touma Kamijou are good examples of this type of hero.
- Messianic Archetype: It is a character whose role in the story (but not necessarily personality) echoes that of Christ. They are portrayed as a savior, whether the thing they are saving is a person, a lot of people or the whole of humanity. They endure a sizable sacrifice as the means of bringing that salvation about for others, a fate they do not deserve up to and including death or a Fate Worse than Death.
- Moral Heroes: It is a character who has a sense of right and wrong, and always does the right thing.
