Dystopian Character

The Hunger Games:
Dystopian Prizefight Project
By: Trey Jeffries

Hunger Games vs: Among the Hidden
Hunger Games:
Set in the distant future.
There are 12 districts and each district specializes in its own industry.
The Capitol controls the districts and thrives off of each industries production.
The Capitol forces 1 boy and 1 girl from each district to fight to the death in an arena and the last one standing wins.
Citizens live in a dehumanized state
Example: But it's tempting, so tempting when I see the bounty waiting there for me. And I know that if I don't get it, someone else will. That the Career Tributes who survive this bloodbath will divide up most of the life-sustaining spoils. page 149
Among the Hidden
Takes place in the woods.
The Government builds a new neighborhood in the woods.
The Government made a law that no family can have more than 2 children and no pets due to food shortages.
Population police go around to houses to see if there are any third children or "shadow children".
Information, independent thought, and freedom are restricted.
Example: It wasn't a sanctuary, it was a prison.
I feel like the Hunger Games portrayed the best dystopian setting. The situation was better and more exciting than Among the Hidden. Also, it had more dystopian elements and is a better dystopian setting. While Among the Hidden makes you think that it's more realistic and could actually happen, the Hunger Games has a better and more realistic dystopian setting which is why it takes round one.
Teenage girl who lives in District 12 and is very skilled with a bow.
Volunteers for her sister as tribute for the Hunger Games.
Takes care of her family after the death of her father.
Helps the audience recognize the negative aspects of the dystopian world through his or her perspective.
Example: Taking the kids from our districts, forcing them to kill one another while we watch- this is the Capitol's way of reminding us how we are at their mercy. page 18
Among the Hidden
Katniss Everdine
Luke Garner
12 year old boy who is shy and unknowing of the outside world.
Spends his life in hiding so the Population Police don't take him.
Becomes friends with Jen, another 3rd child, who shows him who and what the government are.
Questions the existing social and political systems
Example: Haven't you learned? Government leaders are the worst ones for breaking laws. How do you think we got this house? How do you think I got Internet access? How do you think we live?
Katniss Everdine, Hunger Games
Katniss Everdine and the Hunger Games won round two. Katniss Everdine is more of a dystopian protagonist than Luke because she is braver and she's more of a hero than Luke. Although Luke does take risks along the way and becomes braver, Katniss is a good leader and a survivalist which is why round two goes to the Hunger Games.
Round 3:
The Hunger Games
The Capitol is in charge and they rule every district
The danger of a particular type of government
Example: Look how we take your children and sacrifice them and there's nothing you can do. If you lift a finger, we will destroy every last one of you. Just as we did District 13. page 19
Among the Hidden
The Government make the Population Law which everyone follows or else they face consequences. The Population police enforces the law.
The danger of a particular policy
Example: Then they started running all that on TV about the Population Police, how the Population Police had ways of finding out everything, how they'd do anything to enforce the law.
Among the Hidden
Among the Hidden takes round three in a close one. I feel like their theme is stronger and used more in Among the Hidden. Hunger Games does have a good dystopian theme but it's not as strongly enforced than Among the Hidden. People also show more fear towards the Population Law and the Population Police than to the Capitol and President Snow.
