I made it all up, Double D. Everything about my brother was a lie. I made things up so people would like me. Think I was cool. But boy was I wrong. The scam, my brother...this...when am I gonna learn, Double D?

Self-Reproachful heroes are a cross between delusional heroes and remorseful heroes and the opposite of wise heroes. These heroes often try to perform actions on their own ways and/or accomplish personal goals, but they often realize that their own inexperience and/or insecurity are causing them to go in the wrong way, especially if other good guys (who are quite passively empathetic) perform something kind for them, such as changing their lives for the good cause or making a heartfelt speech about their plight. This would often lead them to become redeemed villains, anti-villains, or even anti heroes.
