Militant protagonist

Creatures entity

The protagonist is member of some organized military force.


Alternate names: Soldier protagonist, Knight protagonist

Applies whether the military force belongs to an established government or not, such as paramilitary forces.

Officers who do not usually join the action on-site or with guns blazing also belong to this group.

Strategy games obviously(?) should not get this tag.

The first Militant protagonist video game was released on January 28, 1947.

Activision, Electronic Arts and Ocean published most of these games.
