A recurring theme in many a story, usually fantasy, science fiction, and horror films, there is a time when the hero or heroine has to stand up against a monstrous creature. He or she does this for these reasons:

  • To protect himself
  • To save someone (usually a damsel in distress, his family and friends, or someone he/she loves)
  • To save his homeland
  • For glory and/or honor

The most common image of fighting a beast is a knight facing a fire-breathing dragon to rescue a princess.
