I have over 200 Dragonball action figures, all the English explicit VHS as well as DVDs, I also have every Zelda game and an ocarina (12 hole) so I could play along with them in the game.

A hero is someone who will help others in need, no matter what the circumstance. Our armed forces are a great example of this, putting their lives on the line to help others.
