So we’ve established that there is a difference between the hero and the anti-hero. The hero is the Disney Hercules, and the anti-hero is the Hercules of actual Greek mythology (who was actually called Heracles, because Hercules is the Roman name, but whatever).

TVTropes does a great breakdown of the different types of anti-heroes, and we’re summing those up for you here.
