|“||GIVE ME BACK MY FAMILY!||„|

In any story, there comes a time when the hero/heroine is Facing the Enemy, whether it is standing up for those he/she loves or saving a nation. There are many ways the ages-old Good vs. Evil trope can be represented:
- Blocking the enemy's blow.
- Glaring at the enemy.
- Standing between the enemy and someone to save.
- Blocking the enemy's escape.
- Prepping a karate fighting pose.
- Drawing a weapon, whether it be swords, guns, bombs, chemicals, or even foods of any sort.
- Spreading insults to the enemy.
- Going up against the enemy.
Usually this happens when the hero stands up against the villain, no matter the evildoer is a criminal, a monster, or an invading army. Sometimes the hero can face who he or she initially thinks is an enemy, but he or she realizes he is not. For example, John Smith prepares to shoot Pocahontas but when he realizes she is kind, he puts down his gun.
