Transcript of Hunger Games Archetypes

The "hero" in The Hunger Games,
would be Katniss and Peeta. When Primrose's name, Katniss' sister, was pulled from the Reaping bowl, Katniss volunteered in her place. Peeta joined a career tribute group to try to stray them from the path of Katniss.
The mentor in the Hunger Games is Haymitch Abernathy, a past Hunger Games victor. Haymitch is a mentor to Katniss and Peeta to help them get sponsors who will give them gifts to keep them alive during the games and he gives them helpful advice on how to survive in the harsh environment.
The Mocking Jay Pin symbolizes life. When Prim gave Katniss the pin back, she told her the pin would protect her throughout the games. Katniss had first said this to Prim when she gave it to her before the Reaping. The pin would also symbolize unity. Mocking Jays could be summoned by a call when multiple would come to the scene. Prim and Katniss had their own unity between themselves.
The berries symbolize death, obviously. However, there's much more to them. They symbolize rebellion in the fact that Katniss used them as a ploy to go against the Capitol. They also symbolize hope in the way that they killed another tribute, which made them closer to winning. The berries also were the instigator of rebellions against the Capitol in other Districts.
The bread symbolizes unity between people. Katniss received bread from Peeta when close to starvation. Gale and Katniss also shared an expensive loaf before the Reaping. Each District has their own variation of bread according to their environment and their riches. The bread symbolizes each district's characteristics.
The fire burning costumes in the exhibition of the games symbolizes a spark of rebellion. Usually, the costumes for District 12 are bland. No one pays any attention to the lesser known tributes. Whereas, Katniss and Peeta are now dressed in a way to grab attention, and Katniss is well known for her already courageous act of volunteering as tribute. The costumes are also used to attract sponsors.
The quest in The Hunger Games is a quest for victory and life. 2 tributes (children ages 13-18) from each district (1-12) are randomly selected at a public reaping as tribute to participate in the annual Hunger Games. The child's name may be entered at most 7 times by the time they are 18 if they do not apply for tesserae. In the Hunger Games there are 24 tributes from each of the 12 districts outside of the Capitol. Each tribute must fight against each other in a quest for their lives. If you lose the Hunger Games, you ultimately died of some natural cause (tracker jackers, dogs, berries) or at the hands of another tribute. The winning tribute gets crowned victor, the satisfaction of winning the games, and a life of riches and fame.
The Love Trilogy in The Hunger Games is between Katniss Everdeen, Peeta Mellark, and Gale Hawthorne. Katniss is torn between her childhood friend and true love (Gale Hawthorne) and her fellow district tribute with whom she doesn't truly love but must pretend to love in order to prevent being executed for false pretences in allowing 2 victors to be crowned in the Hunger Games and putting her family back into poverty without anyone to look after them. Katniss truly loves Gale but cannot say anything or act upon it because of the fear of facing death at the hands of the Capitol. Therefore, Katniss is torn and thus making a love triangle or love trilogy.
The Hunger Games
Archetypal Characters
Archetypal Hero
The archetypal villain in The Hunger Games is Cato and Clove (Fox face). The two are career tributes from district 2 who are designed to kill since day 1. Career tributes are tributes who are trained since young children to fight and win The Hunger Games. In the book/movie, Clove and Cato are the best at everything from hunting, camoflage, and most importantly, stealth and ability in the exhibition round where they must show their talents (such as Katniss and her bow) and try to recieve fans. Cato and Clove know Katniss and Peeta are strong and agile due to their environment and skills therefore, they try and eliminate Katniss first because she is the most eligible (besides them) to survive and win and they use Peeta as a map to help find Katniss. They plan to kill Peeta after finding Katniss to eliminate that district and get closer to win.
