Hero/Heroine Dream Meaning and Interpretations


Hero/Heroine Dream Symbol – Dreaming of heroes and heroines is a message to remind that you are the hero of your own life. Think about it. Every day you face life and death in some way. Deal with massive challenges. And overcome many fears and threats to your life, family, and friends. Do you run and hide from what threatens you? Or, do you do the best you can? Do not be so hard on yourself. Ensure you take a little time out each day to relax.

hero-dreamsLook at what happens to the hero in your dream to help you understand the meaning of the dream. If you are not the hero of your own dream, this can mean you do not accept responsibility for yourself, your actions, or yourself. Until you do, your suffering will continue. Do you avoid taking responsibility for your thoughts and actions? Do you make promises you find hard to fulfill?

A female dreaming of a hero in her dream is usually about protection. It can mean that as you reach greater independence you need great courage to overcome your fears. You have the strength to overcome anything to reach your heat’s desires. Do not let the fear of past negative experiences stop you from achieving what you need.

Dreaming of a hero can mean you admire their bravery and character. This can mean you wish to be more like them in your own waking reality. Being the action hero is a sign to make you aware of your strengths and weaknesses. It can also be a reassurance you are doing everything possible to face personal challenges with integrity and courage.

Additional Interpretations

A hero in a dream is a symbol of interior strength and courage. It is important to remember that, in a dream, the physical strength you have in your body is representative of your interior mental and emotional strength, and the extent to which you feel that you have control over your own life.

If you dream that you yourself are a hero, then, this is an auspicious sign of your own feeling of strength and the control you feel you have over your life. If you dream of someone else being a hero and saving you, this means that you do not feel in control of your own life, but that there is someone you can trust to help you through difficulties in your life.

  1. Since kid i used to have dreams about me trying to be a hero. generally it was connected mostly to movies i have seen, like twice i dreamt there was an invasion of dinasours at my town and i was trying to find solution how to save people-
    then recently i have a lot of strange dreams where i am afraid but still trying to fight against bad forces or evil people who wants to close me somewhere and shut me down.

  2. I had a dream that i saved a random woman from being beat. The person that was guilty had ties to very powerful people in government. I was able to save her at the cost of my own life. I didn’t know anyone in the dream.

  3. i dreamt a male friend saved me from danger. i was looking for him when suddenly these 3 men came and tried to do something horrible. i kept on saying my friend’s name. it took a while then in just a moment he popped up and i felt i was saved.

  4. I had a dream that I figured out one of my friends used to be friends with Tom Holland, but he didn’t know. So I went to find him. I also figured out that my teacher used to be their teacher so I went to find him too. Later, with Spider man, the Earth got swung off course and we were slowly inching closer to the sun. I was walking down the road and I saw Rhett from Good Mythical Morning walk into a barber shop/ ice cream place and Link from GMM was there and some of the crew members. Rhett’s hair was balding and Rhett was very sick. He fell asleep with his head leaning on my shoulder. I left, and right down the road was a little gazibo thing and inside were Supergirl, Superman, Iron Man, Captain America, etc. There was also a girl my age that was very smart. Something came up about dildos and power generators. I took them into my backyard. Then the whole story twisted into a musical and everyone was singing, and it was so weird. Instead of the character names from the stories being the superheros, the actors/ actresses that played them had superpowers. MatPat showed up in my living room and sat next to Pewdiepie that randomly showed up, and after a day my teacher finally came out of the bathroom. The dream was a mess, but ended up piecing itself together. IDK.

  5. The night before last night, I had a dream that I was in my backyard. I saw Link (the hero I was looking up. Yes, I love the game.), but he wasn’t doing anything. So I had a sword and shield, and all of the sudden, a robotic enemy showed up and I tried to fight it off. Well, I did, until I got flung back into the house. Link (no, I don’t have a crush on him. He’s just cool.) came over and was (ironically) going to ask if I was okay (in my dreams, I can usually tell what’s going to happen next.), but I woke up… Crazy, huh?

  6. had a dream about visiting the house (historical place) of our hero with my relatives. People there offered us many kind of foods, we sat and listening into something (cant totally remember what we’re listening), then at my left side theres weird door that keep on moving in unusual way like in some ghost stories.. Hope someone could help me interpret this thank you

  7. I had a dream that a man and a woman or king and queen of a house took me and my girlfriend hostage. I was lead away by two bodyguards while the man said ill have some fun with this woman. So i escaped the clutches of a body guard and the queen i pushed them down some stairs. Knocked them out. Then i ran into a room in the upstairs im assuming an attic. There was a window with a screen i opened it and saw outside. It was raining and i was in a house on a regular street other houses lead down the road on both sides. I looked down but was to high up to climb down. I heard people coming as i was looking for a weapon. I hid begind the door and 3 women walked in. I motioned to them to keep quiet with my finger in front of my mouth. They nodded and agreed. Then the queen walked in. I was hiding under the table in the room. She sat in a chair and started talking to the women and laughing evily. I ran towards her hit her with a chair leg i found and grabbed her. I pulled her over to the open window. I yelled wheres my girlfriend. She said i dont know. I punched her in the face and asked again. Where is she…she said ill never tell. I said im going to throw you out of the window if you dont tell me. She stayed quiet thinking i was bluffing. So i threw her out abd watched as she landed on the ground feet first screaming in pain then fell down. She was still moving a little so i grabbed a really heavy chest from the corner. Brought it to the window and dropped it on her. Then i left the room. 10 of her guards where cleaning the outside room and hallway. So i told them your queen is requesting a drink im going to get her one. One of the nen said you’re lying. I yelled no im not if you dont believe me fu$#@ng ask her yourself. That quieted them down. I walked down the hall and decided to go through these double doors to the right because i heard more voices up ahead. I walked into a club like bar. I walked up to a man and said ny girlfriend gas been kidnapped im looking for her. Then a guy came running in yelling for help being chased by one of the houses bodyguards. I had a quick idea that id pretend to be on his side to get information. So i punched the running guy knocking him out. The bodyguards a man abd woman said thanks and offered to buy me a drink. But i reached down and took the guys wallet i just knocked out to pay for it after knocking him out again. And breaking his hand for reaching for me. Now so far i had escaped killed the queen of this place and was now undercover to find my girlfriend. I was making moves to find the love of my life. Then i woke up. Looked to my right and saw my beautiful woman lying next to me.

  8. I had a dream that me, my friends and sean bean were pretending to be heroes as a prank.
    Does this mean that my own feeling of strength and control i have over my life is a joke?

  9. I saw a film hero, but his skin color is as westner and has a blonde hair and beard. He was receaving an award from the police department for his heroic thing in real life.

  11. Hello,

    I had a dream that i ended up saving everyone , but got hurt in the process, I was sliced with a blade but I still kept on going. but it was weird because there was two people and they were related, and the young brother was the one shooting everyone and going crazy. He was only doing that because he had to prove a point to his older brother that he can kill people. while I was hiding from the brothers, he was shooting, and there’s a lot of people, it was at a rave event; I had never been to a rave before, when I saw the big brother with the gun , I was going to sneak up behind him and take him down, but the little brother had a blade and came from behind and sliced me. I was feeling hurt but kept on going, the big brother just stood there and didn’t even shoot me. What was weird was while my dream was happening, I kept on telling myself I dreamt about this before and It seemed for familiar.. it was like if I knew what was going to happen already.
