Transcript of Copy of Round and Flat Characters

Round vs. Flat
Round Character
- Usually the main character is round
- Develops throughout the story
- Complex
- Well developed and seems to be real
- We see many sides to a Round
Spider-man is a Round Character
We see him as a Nerd
We see him as Romantic
We see him as sad
Flat Character
And we see him as a fearless, brave hero.
- Usually the supporting characters. Often the
antagonist is a flat character.
- Not as complex or detailed as a round
- We usually only see one side to this character.

Cato from The Hunger Games is a flat Character.
We only see him as a ruthless killer.
Voldemort is flat.
We only see his evil side.
Darth Maul is Flat
We only see the Dark Side in him.
Name some Round Characters.
Name some flat characters.


Dynamic Character
- Under goes an important change in the story.
- Usually the Protagonist of the story is dynamic.
Not only is Batman a dynamic character because he changes from a billionaire playboy to a hero, but Spider-man, who we saw as a round character, is also dynamic. A lot of times a Round character is also a Dynamic Character and vice-versa.
Spider-man starts out as a shy, nerdy student.
To someone who abuses and struggles with his powers.
And then changes to the hero we all know and love.
It is important to note that all dynamic changes in characters may not be good.
Like Darth Vader, Two-Face from Batman changed from a good to evil.
Static Character
- Character does not undergo any change
- Remains the same throughout.
- Static characters are usually bad guys
(antagonist). However, they can be good
guys too.

The Joker is Static. He is a homicidal manic to the end. Notice the Joker is also flat. Often, flat and static characters go hand in hand.
The Emperor is Static
President Snow is Static
