Heroic Overview
Father scolding child
You betrayed your own kind! Quintessa is the great deceiver! The judgement... is death!
~ The Guardian Knights before preparing to execute Optimus Prime for his "betrayal".

Heroes can get punished for many things:

  • disobeying orders
  • their own selfish actions
  • doing something reckless
  • saving another person's life against unjust orders/rules
  • "betraying" others, knowingly or unknowingly

Sometimes, these punishments are anti-heroic in nature/context, beget disastrous consequences themselves either directly or indirectly, or otherwise unfair, in the eyes of at least any one party involved, in some way or another. In such scenarios, the person in question being punished has a good reason for whatever they did that could have merited, or didn't deserve such disciplinary action.

It's just- (Carey cuts Cody off.) (Carey: Zip it, mister!) We didn't mean to ruin the wedding. It's just that we saw all those mini hot dogs we love and I'm weak.

Once upon a time, in a far away land, a young prince lived in a shining castle. Although he had everything his heart desired, the prince was spoiled, selfish, and unkind. But then, one winter's night, an old beggar woman came to the castle and offered him a single rose in return for shelter from the bitter cold. Repulsed by her haggard appearance, the prince sneered at the gift and turned the old woman away, but she warned him not to be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within. And when he dismissed her again, the old woman's ugliness melted away to reveal a beautiful enchantress. The prince tried to apologize, but it was too late, for she had seen that there was no love in his heart, and as punishment, she transformed him into a hideous beast, and placed a powerful spell on the castle, and all who lived there. Ashamed of his monstrous form, the beast concealed himself inside his castle, with a magic mirror as his only window to the outside world. The rose she had offered was truly an enchanted rose, which would bloom until his twenty-first year. If he could learn to love another, and earn her love in return by the time the last petal fell, then the spell would be broken. If not, he would be doomed to remain a beast for all time. As the years passed, he fell into despair, and lost all hope, for who could ever learn to love a beast?
~ The Beast getting punished for being a mean and selfish prince and as punishment, he is transformed into a hideous beast.
