  Protagonist - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Often the story is told from the protagonist's point of view; even when not in first-person narrative, the protagonist's attitudes and actions are made clear to the reader or listener to a larger extent than for any other character.
The protagonist is often faced with a "foil"; that is, a character known as the antagonist who most represents or creates obstacles that the protagonist must overcome.
In psychodrama, the "protagonist" is the person (group member, patient or client) who decides to enact some significant aspect of his life, experiences or relationships on stage with the help of the psychodrama director and other group members, taking supplementary roles as auxiliary egos.

 Silent protagonist - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
However, in the early 90's, the silent protagonist became a bit of a trend in the RPG genre, and many of the most successful games of that era featured non-speaking heroes as their lead.
The common counterpoint to the added "realism" of a speaking protagonist is that a non-speaking hero would allow the player to provide their own voice for the character, and thus a deeper immersion in the plot.
Jak and Daxter (Jak, the silent protagonist, is given speech in the sequels Jak II and Jak 3.

 THE GROUP AND ITS PROTAGONIST   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
In enactment of the protagonist’s story, individual group members were chosen to portray roles, and all the members of the group were in some way able to expand on the roles they had in embryonic form earlier on.
The notion that the protagonist is consciously chosen might be attractive to the systematisation of the process but it belies the complex dialectic between the social and cultural factors (microsociology included!) and the unconscious dynamics, which combine as if to use the director and the group as their tools.
The words "choosing the protagonist" do not adequately describe my actions as the director, rather my part was to facilitate the group to a point where the protagonist was evident and I knew to invite her to be protagonist.

 The Gaming Philosopher: Death of the Protagonist
The death of the protagonist (those who heard a resonance of Barthes in the title of this piece were absolutely right) is an important step towards the coming of age of roleplaying games as a form of art.
I disagree with Christian that all protagonist deaths in ASoIaF can be understood as escalating the stakes or making a statement, but that is probably because I interpret the work as undermining the kinds of stakes and statements that these deaths seem to escalate and make.
And I guess that deprotagonising protagonist death used to be mainly annoying, in old-school roleplaying.

 § 246. protagonist. 3. Word Choice. The American Heritage Book of English Usage. 1996
The protagonist of a Greek drama was its first, or leading, actor; therefore there could be only one in a play.
Protagonist is a pretty rare word in ancient Greek, which also has words almost equally rare for second actor and third actor—deuteragonist and tritagonist, respectively.
These latter two terms exist in Modern English also, but they are very rare, and writers use them, whether fortunately or unfortunately, only in technical discussions of drama.

 Weill, The Protagonist
Der Protagonist represents the culmination of a careful step-by-step process whereby Weill first explored the realm of purely instrumental music, then pantomime and ballet, and finally opera.
At the end of the second rehearsal (which covers parallel events, though viewed through an expressionistic lens) the Protagonist, unable to break his character as the deceived husband, stabs his own sister when she introduces him to her lover the Young Gentleman.
The filmic aspects of Der Protagonist's two pantomimes, especially the second, quasi-expressionistic one with its "Caligari-irrationalism" (according to one commentator) are powerful indeed.

 The Effective Protagonist   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
It cannot however be assumed that such a character in a novel functions in the same way as the "dream-ego" in a dream.
In order to identify the effective protagonist of a novel, one needs (1) to compare the situation at the outset of the work with the situation at its conclusion and (2) to ask which of the characters is most radically changed by the events described.
If all the events of the novel can be convincingly related to this apparently less central character, then he or she will be its effective protagonist.

 johnaugust.com » What’s the difference between Hero, Main Character and Protagonist?
For example, Ripley in Aliens is clearly the Hero (fighting the monster), the Main Character (the story is mostly about her), and the Protagonist (she reluctantly joins the trip, but ends up descending to the depths to fight for her “daughter”).
Protagonist is no different from main characters, except that it’s more of a journey role (as John has said).
Now, Gruber is obviously a Villain, but as far as the plot of the main plot of the movie goes, he’s the one with the classic protagonist’s journey: he wants something, and either succeeds or fails to get it in the end.
