— HERO

HERO is one of the three deuteragonists in OMORI who join OMORI's party. When tagged as the leader, HERO can use his charm to convince others to assist the party.

PROFILE

APPEARANCE

The HEADSPACE version of HERO wears a set of blue-striped pajamas. His hair is unkempt from sleep, as seen in his sprites. Like KEL and AUBREY, he lacks socks or shoes and his hair and eyes are purple. According to SPROUT MOLE MIKE, he is 5'7" at the age of fifteen. HERO is also the oldest and tallest of the party.

In the present, HERO appears as young adult man with a more mature appearance compared to the others. HERO has neatly-styled brown hair and black eyes like KEL. His main attire consists of a navy V-neck sweater, grey pants and white shoes. It is also notable that he grew taller like the other main characters.

PERSONALITY

During his youth, HERO is the peacemaker of the group, who tries to restrain his friends whenever they get too worked up. He is described as having a mild personality and passionate in domestic work like baking, cooking and cleaning, making him an ideal employee.[3][4] HERO also has a charismatic side that he uses to charm others. His charisma allows him to convince others to go along with his requests, get discounts from MAILBOX and befriend animals like EMS. However, he can sometimes be a pushover when confronted, and has difficulty refusing others. He also appears to have arachnophobia (an irrational fear of spiders) to the point of freezing up completely. These traits are shared with his HEADSPACE counterpart.

In the present, HERO still retains his amicable, warm-hearted persona during his adulthood. He is well-loved by the folks of FARAWAY and admired for his charisma as well. He notably possesses a talent in succeeding in virtually everything he tries, though he admits his reputation is heavily exaggerated. HERO is rather calm and understanding towards anyone he meets, even trying to comfort them in times of distress. This was shown when he comforted AUBREY and helped her reconcile with KEL, SUNNY, and BASIL.

Despite this, he is rather mellowed down in terms of personality, mostly due to suffering from depression over MARI's death and trying to get his life back on track. HERO also appears to keep his emotions in check most of the time, although he does get deeply emotional whenever he remembers MARI's presence. Regardless, HERO still tries to remain strong for his friends and will do anything to make sure they feel comfortable and safe.

STORY

BACKGROUND

Hero and his friends during their childhood youth.

HERO was born to his unnamed father and mother approximately 19 years before the start of the game. Three years later, his younger brother KEL was born. HERO obtained the nickname "HERO" because of his love for HERO SANDWICHES.[5]

At some point, HERO became friends with his next-door neighbors MARI and SUNNY, then later AUBREY and BASIL. They, along with his younger brother KEL, would spend much of their time together.

One day, HERO went out with his mom to buy clothes and shoes and didn't get home until the afternoon. KEL went out to get a haircut with his dad. AUBREY was there with her dad as well because the three were going to watch MARI and SUNNY's music recital. It was supposed to be that night, but when they came home in the evening, they found out she had died, believing that she had hung herself.

HERO became severely depressed and secluded himself from his friends, family, school and hobbies for about a year. KEL tried to encourage HERO one day, but this resulted in HERO taking out his grief and anger on KEL.[6] His parents immediately rushed to comfort him, ignoring KEL who was also in tears. Noticing this, HERO immediately embraced KEL and apologized. It is after this instance that HERO strived to do much better, though according to KEL, he is still somewhat closed off.[7]

He once considered becoming a chef partly due to MARI's encouragement. However, after MARI's death he decided to follow his parents' wishes to become a doctor.

THREE & TWO DAYS LEFT

Hero after saving Sunny and Basil from drowning.

When SUNNY leaves his house for the first time, HERO is still at college and is scheduled to return the next day. HERO's family prepares for his return, with KEL taking SUNNY to get a welcoming gift as well as food for his mother to serve.

The next day, SUNNY and KEL decide to go run an errand to await for HERO's return. Sometime during the afternoon, they both hear BASIL screaming for help and discover THE HOOLIGANS tormenting him once again. A fight ensues, with the outcome leading to AUBREY accidentally shoving BASIL too hard into the lake.

Knowing that BASIL might drown, KEL tells SUNNY to dive in to save him. However, SUNNY isn't able to fully rescue BASIL. HERO manages to arrive at the HANGOUT SPOT in the nick of time, saving both SUNNY and BASIL. The three boys decide to take BASIL back to his home to recover, and later spend the rest of the afternoon hanging out together.

The three eventually eat dinner together (after HERO and KEL convince their mother), and then have a sleepover at SUNNY's house. At the middle of the night, HERO hears what appears to be a familiar piano tune playing downstairs. He heads over to the piano room, only to find SUNNY standing there too. Understanding that SUNNY was there due to missing MARI, he tells the boy he feels same as well. However, when SUNNY leaves to go back to sleep, HERO somberly cries on the piano keys, muttering MARI's name as he still misses her dearly.

ONE DAY LEFT

Sunny, Kel, Aubrey, and Hero share a group hug together.

When SUNNY, KEL and HERO wake up from their sleepover, KIM comes to SUNNY'S house to inform them that AUBREY isn't answering her door. HERO insists that they need to go make up with AUBREY, and he directs the party to her house to talk to her. The party goes inside, and HERO talks to AUBREY to convince her and KEL to make up. The group also find the missing photos, which all picture MARI, on her corkboard, AUBREY mentioning that she took them because "it's all she has left of her." They put them back in the PHOTO ALBUM and leave the house.

HERO and friends spend the rest of their day hanging out, while reminiscing the past at some spots in town. They soon return to SUNNY's house and visit their old treehouse. The group somberly finds the stump of the tree where MARI supposedly died, wondering why she would take her own life so soon. From there, HERO finds his old set of cookbooks all dusty and dirty while SUNNY collects the missing photo containing the key to the toy box. As SUNNY solemnly remembers the good memories of his childhood, AUBREY storms out of the treehouse.

HERO and KEL follow her, with SUNNY leaving last. Near the tree stump, HERO and the others listen to AUBREY being open about her feelings. She apologizes for blaming them for not being there for her, to which both HERO and KEL comfort her in response. The four friends then make up with each other and share a big group hug.

The group heads over to BASIL's house to have a sleepover despite BASIL not coming out of his room. They all eventually decide to stay over for the night to celebrate SUNNY's last day at FARAWAY TOWN. Before falling asleep, HERO, KEL, and AUBREY tell SUNNY that life will soon get better even if moves out, as he still has them in their hearts. They then fall asleep after having a heartfelt conversation.

MOVING DAY

NEUTRAL ENDINGS

After remembering the truth, if SUNNY chooses to go back to sleep instead of confronting and saving BASIL, this will lead to another tragedy as BASIL succeeds in killing himself via suicide. This leaves the entire friend group and POLLY in complete despair upon discovering BASIL's corpse. Upon waking up once more, SUNNY finds the entire living room empty.

Heading up north, SUNNY finds his friends and POLLY in the hallway, distraught over BASIL's suicide. HERO is shown staring at the door to BASIL's room, barely managing to keep himself together. Upon noticing SUNNY, HERO tearfully pleads the former to not look at BASIL's corpse. He then tells SUNNY that its best that he should leave since he is supposed to be moving and having a fresh new start in life.

Adding that the others will take care of things from there, HERO assures SUNNY that "they will be okay" with a doubtful tone in his voice. With no other choice left, SUNNY leaves his distraught friends behind with no answers regarding the truth behind MARI's accidental death at all.

GOOD ENDING

The friend group's peaceful sleepover is interrupted right after SUNNY manages to stop BASIL through his disastrous attempt to save him. In the process, BASIL ends up giving SUNNY a severe eye injury with his gardening shears. Being unable to continue fighting due to mental stress and fatigue, both boys fall unconscious during the outcome of the fight. HERO and the others soon wake up and find the two boys unconscious.

Sunny prepares to tell his friends the truth behind Mari's death.

The three friends presumably call an ambulance, evident by the sirens going off during the aftermath of the fight, and both boys are immediately rushed to the hospital. After a climactic struggle against OMORI within his mind, SUNNY awakens in his hospital bed crying with a bandage over his right eye, finally coming to terms with MARI's death. He then limps out of his room and visions his HEADSPACE friends and STRANGER for the final time as he heads towards BASIL's hospital room.

From there, HERO can be seen standing beside BASIL's hospital bed alongside KEL and AUBREY. The group then notices SUNNY standing at the doorway, ready to tell them what truly happened when MARI died. The friends' reactions are left to the viewer's imagination as the game cuts to the credits.

RELATIONSHIPS

KEL

KEL and HERO are shown to have a very close brotherly relationship, both in the DREAM WORLD and the real world. As the older of the two, HERO almost always takes the role of the responsible one, most notably settling down fights between KEL and AUBREY. HERO is also shown to be a high academic achiever compared to KEL, owning several awards and pursuing a career as a doctor. KEL has shown some jealousy towards his brother's talents, such as calling him a "show-off" when HERO plays MARI's old piano.

While HERO is shown to be the more responsible brother, he freezes up whenever he sees a spider. He relies on KEL to kill and take care of spiders. KEL states that this is one of the rare circumstances where he feels like he is the older brother.[8]

When HERO became severely depressed for almost a year after MARI's death, KEL attempted to make him feel better. This resulted in HERO lashing out at KEL to the point of them both crying, traumatizing KEL.[6] After coming to his senses, HERO embraced KEL and apologized repeatedly. Though HERO began attending school and being active once more, KEL believes his brother is still somewhat closed off.[7]

MARI

MARI was one of HERO's childhood friends and next-door neighbors. Being the two oldest of their friend group, MARI and HERO often took on responsibilities together, such as watching over the others nap and cleaning the dishes. As a result, the two had a close relationship.

HERO and MARI often acted flirtatious with one another.[9][10] MARI in particular enjoyed teasing and pranking HERO to fluster him, calling his reactions "cute" or "funny".[11][12] It is implied by BASIL that HERO and MARI were in a romantic relationship.[13] However, their relationship status was ambiguous. Whether this was because they did not want to make MARI's dad upset,[14] or for other reasons, is unclear.

After MARI's death, HERO became depressed and reclusive for almost a year. While he appears to be emotionally stable in the present, he admits that he still thinks about MARI every day.[15] KEL reveals that HERO has not visited MARI's grave in the past four years,[16] and HERO himself claims to not be ready to visit the FARAWAY CEMETERY before DAY 3. When SUNNY leaves him alone in the piano room, he can be found quietly crying about MARI.

SUNNY

HERO's relationship with SUNNY, him being the younger brother of his childhood friend MARI, seems to be quite strong, shown in how he chips in to buy SUNNY a building block set, as well as work part-time to get SUNNY a new violin. In turn, SUNNY appears to admire HERO for his charisma and hard-working demeanor, often thinking "Wow..." to his actions. SUNNY has a lot of respect for HERO and is willing to use his money on buying a gift for him. After MARI's death, It is presumed that they did not speak in the gap between then and TWO DAYS LEFT, as he became emotionally detached, though he still seems to be friendly and caring with SUNNY even after 4 years of not talking to each other.

AUBREY

HERO and AUBREY were friends as children. They seemed to have a familial relationship, with HERO usually refereeing between her and KEL's arguments.

Like the others, at the start she blamed HERO for never being there after MARI's death. On DAY 3, HERO is shown apologizing for not taking care of everyone and not being there for her, and says he will be in the future. When she starts crying, he starts comforting her and assuring he understands and knows she still cares and that he'll and everyone will be there for her from now on.

However, similar to the rest of their friends, he had never gone inside AUBREY's house until DAY 3.

BASIL

BASIL was introduced to HERO by AUBREY. Not much is known about their relationship due to their limited interactions but it is shown that HERO does care about BASIL, similar to the rest of the friends.

After BASIL is hospitalised, HERO is found next to BASIL's bed, along with AUBREY and KEL.

SWEETHEART

SWEETHEART has been shown to be romantically interested in HERO, as shown when she wants to marry him during her show, finding him to be her love and the perfect person to marry, although HERO does not reciprocate her feelings.

MR. JAWSUM

MR. JAWSUM was HERO's boss for a short while. MR. JAWSUM stated that HERO was one of the best employees that he'd ever had, and thought of HERO as his own son. HERO greatly respected MR. JAWSUM and took his job seriously.

BATTLE

HERO plays the support role of the party. He has outstanding Defense, a very high HEART pool, but has one of the lowest Speeds in the game, and a lot of his skills have the valued ability to heal your party. Only two of his skills actually deals damage, so for most part, HERO will be patching up wounds or using his normal attack.

Using him for a normal attack in a boss fight isn't bad, either, because all his FOLLOW-UPS will restore the target party member's HEART and JUICE and coax them into performing an additional attack. His debuff and aggro-drawing skills are given priority to offset his low Speed so that they always take effect before the enemy can move -- expect to use SMILE to weaken tough enemies or DAZZLE to defang a whole group of them.

LEVEL STATS

DW Hero Neutral (No Background).gif

The data table shows HERO's raw stats (without any item bonuses, nor HEARTS bonuses gained by watering plants, nor any special bonuses).

The player can boost HERO's HEART stat by constantly watering the flowers near the path to BASIL'S HOUSE. Though, just note that HERO can only gain HEARTS from the rose flowers. In addition, every party member's JUICE can be increased by 5 points for every new CLUB SANDWICH that the party lodges at.

After defeating MR. JAWSUM and PLUTO (EXPANDED), take HERO down to the golden door in 1F of the LAST RESORT. He'll unlock the password-guarded door where you can access CLUB SANDWICH. Talk to the MR. SCAREBRO with HERO as the party leader a couple of times, and take up his offer to punch him. HERO will gain an 20 ATTACK boost for this.

FARAWAY TOWN

RW Hero (Menu).gif

HERO's default stats in FARAWAY TOWN are listed down below. Note that all playable FARAWAY characters only remain at LEVEL 1 as they cannot properly level up in-game.

In addition, the FIST weapon cannot be unequipped, meaning his initial ATTACK stat is 21, while his HIT only goes up to 95. Despite this, equipping the CHIMERA KEYCHAIN or SEASHELL NECKLACE can slightly increase some of HERO's stats.

TRIVIA

  • KEL reveals that HERO's name is his nickname, however his real name is never mentioned in-game.[17]
    • However, the RPG Maker MV project of the game reveals HERO's real name as HENRY.
  • HERO's overworld sprite in HEADSPACE bears a resemblance to Ness's when the latter is in his pajamas from the 1994 Super NES game Earthbound. Both characters have blue and white vertical stripes for their pajamas.
  • If HERO is tagged, you will get discounts when purchasing from the MAILBOX. HERO's charm can also be used at the UNDERWATER HIGHWAY to get discounts on the tolls from the TOLL GATORS.
  • If HERO is tagged, certain NPCs will have special dialogue, and some will give the player an item, with the recurring line "Go forth, HERO! Be the _____ you were always meant to be!" being said afterward.
Hero Afraid (Demo).gif
  • In the 2018 demo, HERO's AFRAID portrait was originally colored like with AUBREY and KEL's AFRAID portraits. However, in the full game, HERO's AFRAID portrait has monochrome colors similar to that of OMORI's color scheme. It is unknown why this was changed.
  • HERO's favorite foods are chocolate chip cookies and Hero sandwiches, hence his nickname.[18]
    • In addition, if the player gives HERO a HERO SANDWICH in-battle, he'll end up with his HAPPY emotion. This is only shown if the player enters RECYCULTIST'S HQ on ONE DAY LEFT.
  • From version 1.0.7 and forward, most of HERO's HEART-healing skills are affected by EMOTION, the only exception being the "TEA TIME" skill. It is currently unknown if this is on purpose or not.
Hero Tired Sprite.gif
  • HERO seems to be lacking in physical fitness. This is shown when he needs to rest after climbing the ladder to OTHERWORLD and when you exercise on the treadmills in SPROUT MOLE COLONY (he runs very slowly and has to get off for a while before getting back on the treadmill). He also has a low SPD stat in battle.
  • HERO has a secret FOLLOW-UP interaction with KEL. If KEL is sad, and HERO does the "Call KEL" FOLLOW-UP, it will remove KEL's SAD emotion and make him NEUTRAL. This works with any tier of SAD for KEL, and any emotion for HERO.
Hero Suit (Unused).png
  • HERO has an unused set of sprites consisting of him wearing a suit and shades. These can be found in the LAST RESORT tileset sprite sheet and it is unknown why these were scrapped.
  • During the ABANDON ENDING within BASIL'S HOUSE, HERO's line of "We'll be okay. I think..." uses the distorted, messy font often associated with SOMETHING and STRANGER. If HERO is spoken to again and onwards, the text used will be replaced with the font the game normally uses for the text boxes.
  • Attempting to enter FARAWAY CEMETERY on TWO DAYS LEFT during the afternoon prompts HERO to stop the group from doing so as he isn't emotionally ready to visit the area yet.[19]

  3. SPROUT MOLE MIKE: His passions include baking, cooking and cleaning... And if that doesn't sound like the perfect man, check out his killer smile and mild personality!
  4. MR. JAWSUM: His very presence increases my work output by 700%! I'd be a fool to let go of a worker like him.
  5. KEL: I don't know if I ever told you this, but that's why my brother's nickname is HERO.
  6. 6.0 6.1 KEL: He suddenly got up and started screaming and yelling at me about a bunch of stuff. Some of it was pretty hurtful, too... but I think I blocked out a lot of it.
  7. 7.0 7.1 KEL: I guess he's a little more closed off now than he used to be, but... I'm really just glad to have my brother back.
  8. KEL: You should really try to work on that! What if a spider shows up when I'm not here?
    KEL: Man, HERO... This is one of those rare times where I feel like the big brother!
  9. HERO: You know I only have eyes for you, MARI.
  10. MARI: Hey there, handsome! Or maybe you prefer... What's cookin', good lookin'?
  11. MARI: Oh HERO, you know I'm just teasing. You're so cute when you get all flustered!
  12. MARI: I used to hide bugs in your desk all the time just to see your reaction! You were always so funny.
  13. PHOTO ALBUM: (6/22) - We're about to head home, but I managed to catch one last photo with MARI and HERO! They look so happy. A match made in heaven!
  14. PHOTO ALBUM: (2/18) MY BIRTHDAY - MARI and HERO asleep on the couch. They look so cozy together, hehe... I hope they don't mind the photo. MARI's dad might be kind of mad if he saw it...
  15. HERO: You must miss MARI a lot. It's been hard for me, too. I still think about her every day.
  16. KEL: It's not his fault, but... HERO's never visited here... Not even once. I know it really hurts, but maybe it might be good for him. I don't know...
  17. KEL: You know... I don't know if I ever told you this, but that's why my brother's nickname is HERO... You'd think it's because of some really cool reason like he saved a puppy when he was a kid or something... but no... He just really likes sandwiches!
  18. KEL: Look HERO, we got your favorites... some chocolate chip COOKIES and a big ol' HERO SANDWICH!
  19. HERO: Sorry... I don't know if I'm ready for this yet.
