Think about it. Life... Life is a void. We search and search for answers, but there are none. Hope is just an illusion, Whack. Death is the only certainty!
~ Colonel Meebur giving up, while being lost in the Void.
Why do you think I'm late to school every day? Because most days, I can't even find a reason to get out of bed. What reason is there to do anything when I fully know how worthless I am?
~ Sayori.

The protagonists who consider things meaningless, such as fun, emotion, and perhaps even life itself. These characters are usually set-up as protagonists for one of two reasons, either because the work is a character-piece having to do with the characters' existential awakening or to use them purely as a comedic foible, quickly discarding normal heroic concerns for more blunt ones. However, some might simply remain heroic nihilists.

Many of these Nihilistic Heroes may not be able to have a possible chance to even qualify as being "Pure Good" (unless they have remorse, sympathy, getting brainwashed/possessed, and/or have poor judges of character),  knowing that these type of characters do not view value into certain things that may be important others in life. These heroes are often Anti-Heroes, considering nihilistic characters are often villainous or morally questionable in their actions.

Their opposites are counterpart and Anti-Nihilists.
