An antihero is a main character in a story who does not act like a hero. Examples of antiheroes are Marvel Comics The Punisher & Deadpool , Sega's "Shadow The Hedgehog", Batman, Catwoman of Batman, Sweeney Todd, Martha-Scott Benson, and Harry Potter's "Severus Snape". Most of the time it means a character in fiction, television, or movies. Sometimes it is used to mean a living person or person from history.
