Heroic Overview

The world has been out of balance for far too long: it needs the Air Nation back again. I can't let Zaheer destroy it and everyone we love. Help me save the airbenders, then you can worry about saving me.
~ Korra making the sacrifice to save the new air nation.

The Noble Choice is when the hero or heroine is at his or her most heroic stature. The event starts after the Obstacles and Arguments event. This usually happens when the main protagonist does what he or she believes is right for him or herself and for his or her friends, family, or community.

The hero or heroine makes his or her choice to fight the enemy, make amends for his past mistakes, etc. While Noble Choices are spine-chilling, it's the best event heroes can produce.

The Noble Choice is appositive

There are many ways the hero can show us he is making the Noble Choice:

  1. Making a speech to his community, friends, or family.
  2. Standing up to the enemy.
  3. Taking the place of an accused or mistreated person.
  4. Stepping between the enemy and someone special (Copper blocking Amos' gun; Diego blocking Soto's attack on Manny).
  5. Admitting the truth. (Oscar admitting that he lied about being a Sharkslayer)
  6. Giving up his life or personal wants for other people. (Casper giving up his dream to be human again and gives it to Dr. Harvey instead)
  7. Standing up for his people.
  8. Blocking the enemy's blow. (Anna blocking Hans' sword as he tries to kill Elsa, freezing in the process and shattering the sword to pieces)
  9. Confessing his/her love for another.
  10. Going back to face something or someone. (Po returning to face Lord Shen after attaining his inner peace; Nelly going back to aid her friends in battle against the evil Cat King and his army of alley cats to help Jerry Mouse reclaim his kingdom)
  11. Choosing Heart over Duty.
  12. Sacrificing to save everybody. (The Iron Giant sacrificing himself to stop the missile from killing dozens of people)
  13. Choosing to live somewhere in order to keep his friends.
  14. Apologizing for what they've done, whether they're aggressively angry towards the people they've loved, making wrong decisions, etc. (Thorin II Oakenshield developed a mad love of gold over his friends, causing him to commit such acts, until he finally managed to come to his senses and help everyone during the Battle of the Five Armies) (See Obstacles and Arguments)
  15. Rising to power.
  16. Betraying the antagonist(s).

(Melody looks at her grandfather, then at her parents.) I have a better idea. (Cut to the palace; Melody, holding the trident, uses it to dissolve the castle walls.) Now we can all be together!
~ As Melody reconciles with her parents, King Triton offers Melody a choice to either live with him and Atlantica as a mermaid, or stay human and live with her family. Melody declines the offer, instead choosing to use her Grandfather's trident to dissolve the castle walls--therefore, both human and merfolk can be together in harmony.
(Iago's scream is heard as he falls from the sky, bouncing off Carpet. Jasmine catches him.) (Iago (out of breath): Al's dad... Sa'luk...) (Jasmine: Just take a deep breath, Iago. Now what about Aladdin's father?) (Iago: It's Sa'luk, the guy Al beat. He's NOT beat! He's back! And he's got Cassim!) That's his problem! He chose to go back to that life! (Genie: Al, I know your dad made a lot of bad choices--but that doesn't mean you have to.) (Jasmine: He is your father. How can you do anything else?) I'm being as stubborn as he was... (Al sulks for a moment, then, after a pause...) Show me the way! (Jasmine, Abu, Iago, and Genie smile grandly)
~ Aladdin deciding to save his father from Sa'Luk, despite all his father's selfish actions.
(Phil and Lil pushes a frightened Chuckie on, even though the lightning makes a trees resemble monsters. Then, lightning strikes a tree. They all run for cover, with Phil accidentally leaving his blue shoes behind near a fallen tree trunk) Chuckie: Lil? Phil? (Chuckie sees Phil's shoes, though its placement leads Chuckie and Lil to think that a tree has fallen on him.) Aah! Ohh! Oh. Phil. Lil: Chuckie? Chuckie: He always loved climbing on trees. Now a tree's climbed on him. Lil (tearfully picking up Phil shoes): He was my favoritest brother. Speak to me, Phillip! Phil: Have you guys seen my shoes? Lil: Phillip! (hugs him) I don't like this adventure anymore, Phillip! Phil: Gosh, Chuckie, this time we really are doomed! Lil: Doomed! Doomed! (wails) Phil: Snap out of it, Lillian! We gotta find the lizard! Chuckie: I dunno, guys. If we find the lizard and Tommy doesn't, how's he ever gonna get home? Phil: What're you worried about him for? He's the one who was gonna let you get eated by a fish! Lil: All he cares about now is baby Dil! Chuckie: Yeah, well, somebody has to! Don't they?'
~ Chuckie Finster convincing Phil and Lil to go out to save Tommy and Dil.
To live forever... when those I loved are dead, and I to blame? I choose death.
~ The Prince rejects the Vizier's offer of power and immortality before plunging the Dagger of Time into the hourglass, resealing the Sands of Time and returning back in time in order to prevent the invasion of Farah's kingdom and the release of the Sands from happening.
Taran: I'm not a warrior, I'm a pig-boy. What would I do with the sword? Orddu: Absolutely nothing. Taran: But I would trade. Orddu, Orwen and Orgoch: Yes? Taran: The cauldron... for Gurgi.
~ Taran's noble decision of giving away the black cauldron in exchange for Gurgi's life.
He's right! I've got more reason to fight than anyone! SO WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME?! I'm afraid I'll never get to go home. I can't give up! The only chance I have is to fight!
~ Katie Walker deciding to not give up in order to win.
I couldn't stay away. If they're gonna punish me like a Crystal Gem, I might as well be one.
~ Lapis Lazuli officially joining the Crystal Gems.
(At the infirmary on Deep Space Nine, Captain Sisko visits Worf) (Sisko: What's the word?) She is still in surgery, but Doctor Bashir is hopeful she will make a full recovery. (Sisko: Lasaran's dead. Starfleet Intelligence intercepted a transmission saying that he'd been killed trying to re-enter the base at Soukara. Could you have made the rendezvous?) Yes. (Sisko: Yet you turned back to save Jadzia?) Yes. (Sisko: Were you aware that the information that man had could have saved millions of lives?) Yes. (Sisko: So what happened?) You may not understand. (Sisko: Try me, sir.) You were at my wedding. You heard the story of the first two Klingon hearts and how nothing could stand against them, and how they even destroyed the gods that created them. I have heard that story since I was a boy but I never understood it, I mean really understood it, until I was standing in the jungle with my heart pounding in my chest and I found that even I could not stand against my own heart. I had to go back and it did not matter what Starfleet thought or what the consequences were. She was my wife and I could not leave her. (Sisko: As your captain, it is my duty to tell you that you made the wrong choice. I don't think Starfleet will file any formal charges. Even a secret court martial would run the risk of revealing too much about their intelligence operations. But this will go into your service record, and to be completely honest, you probably won't be offered a command on your own after this.) I understand. (Sisko: I have also issued new orders. You and Jadzia are not to be assigned to a mission on your own ever again. And one last thing. As a man who had a wife, if Jennifer had been lying in that clearing, I wouldn't have left her either.) (Worf leaves the infirmary to see Jadzia.)
~ Worf explaining to Captain Sisko that he couldn't bring himself to leave the wounded Jadzia Dax in the clearing and why he had to abort the mission to save her. Sisko understands his story, but tells him that Worf has made the wrong choice, but admits that he would have done the same thing if he and Jennifer (his late wife) had been in the situation.
(Luci, now a level 2 demon, is flying Princess Bean and Elfo's spirit in a Jar out of Hell, but they are heavy and Luci is huffing) Damn! You guys are heavy. Do we really need both of you? (Bean and Elfo: Yes.) I hate democracy. Anyway, once we cross this lava river, we're home free, I thinl we're going to make it! (Suddenly, Satan appears! Satan: I don't! The three heroes scream. Satan: Thought you could escape Luci? A mere demon level 2? I'm so dissapointed, you could have made Uber Demon one day!) Luci: How bout today? (He drops Elfo who starts screaming as he begins his fall into the lava. Bean: Elfo!) Luci: See you never! (He drops Bean who also starts screaming. Satan is most pleased. Satan: What an appalling thing to do. I hereby promote you to Uber Demon Level 4. He turns Luci into a larger version of himself.) Luci: Thanks dumbass! He punches Satan in the face and knocks him into a revaine rock. (Satan: Leave now, and you'll lose your power, your immortality, your parking space, EVERYTHING!) Luci: That's a price I'm willing to pay! (He flies down to rescue his friends. Elfo: Oh god! My soul's gonna die! I'm gonna go to Super Hell!, Luci swoops in and catches them both) Gotcha! (Bean: You schmuck, again? The heroes fly towards a lava waterfall, fly up, and are back in the mortal world, on a tropical island, Luci's wings vanish and he shrinks back to normal size) Oh no, my wings! (The heroes land on the ground)
~ Luci giving up his power, immortality, and place in hell to save his friends
