Heroic Overview
Sometimes during the movies, the heroes was being held by villains or whatever reason....they stated to realize that it's all their fault for trusting the villains, being betrayed, being lied to, etc.

Until Realization or Heroic Encouragement teach them that they shouldn't give up hope and believe in themselves even though they started it in the first place or so.


  • The Beast losing hope of the spell being broken, long before Belle came along. Later just as both he and Belle have developed mutual feelings for each other, he reluctantly but without hesitation releases her to rescue her father--even if it means she might not return and the spell won't be broken. As he watches her ride off, he roars in despair and loses all hope of the spell being broken or even seeing her again. Belle does return to save him and admits her feelings, just in time, just as the final petal falls from the rose.


50 years have passed, but I do not age. Time has lost its effect on me. Yet, the suffering continues. Aku's grasp chokes the past, present, and future. Hope is lost.

We've got a problem. The rudder is sluggish. (Carlton: Let me take a look, sir. (sees the rudder damaged.) Oh, man. Sir, you're torn up pretty bad. Do you have any elevator control?) It's sluggish, too. We're still losing fuel. (Carlton: Okay. We've got a problem up here. Sirs, Air Force One is badly hit. With the damage, there's no way they can land.) (Back at the White House, Bennet starts looking sad.) (Carlton: I'm sorry, sir.) Thanks for your help. (Carlton: I'll stay on your wing, sir. Take it slow and steady until we figure out what to do. did great.) (salutes him. Marshall then returns the salute.)

I asked so nicely, but she refuses. (Beast shoves a chair out of his way.) What does she want me to do, beg? (He grabs the magic mirror.) Show me the girl. (The mirror shows Belle and the Wardrobe talking.) (Wardrobe: The master's really not so bad, once you get to know him. Why don't you give him a chance?) (Belle: I don't want to get to know him. I don't want anything to do with him!) (Shocked at Belle's words, the Beast sighs) I'm just fooling myself. She'll never see me as anything...but a monster. (As Beast gently puts his mirror down, a petal fell from the rose.) It's hopeless.
~ The Beast losing hope after following unsuccessful advice from his servants as more petals fall from the Enchanted Rose.

(The gargoyles are trying to free Quasimodo.) (Hugo: Come on, Quasi. Snap out of it!) (Victor: Your friends are down there.) It's all my fault. (Laverne: You gotta break these chains.) I can't. I tried. What difference would it make? (Victor: But you can't let Frollo win!) He already was. (Hugo: So you're giving up? That's it?) (Laverne: These chains aren't what's holding you back, Quasimodo.) Leave me alone. (The gargoyles are shocked by Quasi's words and turn away.) (Hugo: Okay. Okay, Quasi. We'll leave you alone.) (Victor: After all, we're only made out of stone.) (Laverne: We just thought maybe you were made of somethin' stronger.) (The gargoyles all turn back to their statue selves.)

(Patrick Sees him about to leave: Hey, where are you going?) I'm going home, Patrick. (Patrick: But what about Mr. Krabs?) What about us? We'll never survive in that trench. You said it yourself, this is man's country. And let's face it, Pat. We're (Patrick: We're not kids.) OPEN YOUR EYES, PATRICK! We blow bubbles, we eat ice cream. We worship a dancing peanut, for corn's sake! WE DON'T BELONG OUT HERE! (Patrick: We do not worship him. (SpongeBob Pulls down his shorts showing Patrick's underwear with the Goofy Goober pictures on it) You've been wearing the same Goofy Goober Peanut Party underpants for three years straight. What do you call that? (Patrick upset: Worship? You're right, SpongeBob. We are kids. (Patrick Runs around sobbing then falls down) Pull your pants up, Patrick. We're going home.
