At its simplest, a screenplay's protagonist is also the main character and the hero, where the protagonist is the one who learns/changes the most, the main character is the one with the most screen time, and the hero is the one who we want to see "win."

Most films follow this mold, as well as most great films. What are your favorite films that do not contain any characters who serve all three of these purposes?
