Although lying is a trait more associated with villains, even heroes can lie.
They only lie for trying to escape from a dangerous situation or for misleading a villain; lying can be just as good as it is bad.
Here's a few things why heroes had to lie:
- About where they are.
- Pretending who they really are.
- Saving themselves.
- That they're working with the villain since the beginning.
- To protect the people they care about.
- What they did wrong.
Here are the examples:
