  4. Messianic Archetypes in Movies's icon

    Messianic Archetypes in Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 2:0. The Messianic Archetype is a character whose role in the story echoes that of Christ. They are portrayed as a savior, whether the thing they are saving is a person, a lot of people or the whole of humanity. They endure a sizable sacrifice as the means of bringing that salvation about for others, a fate they do not deserve up to and including death or a Fate Worse than Death. Other elements may be mixed and matched as required but the Messianic Archetype will include one or more of the following: being the Chosen One, gaining a group of devoted followers, being betrayed by one of these followers, persecution by nonbelievers, parallels to the Passion Play, obvious Crucified Hero Shot, a figurative or literal resurrection, and even a Second Coming. Bonus points if the character has the initials JC. [url]http://tvtropes.org[/url] Checklist: 01. Odd, unexpected and obscure birth or otherwise strange origin and arrival 02.
