This analysis showed that values of heroism of the main character of Frodo Baggins. Frodo Baggins is a mere hobbit who never thinks to become an important role in saving the Middle-earth, the place where he and other races live in The Lord of the Rings. There is a kind of process of finding the true personality, which is the developed-personality into a mature of Frodo. It involves the influences from his surrounding – the interaction to other creatures that he has never met before. He has to make decisions, has to deal with many different ways of thinking that can influence his personality. Until he has which make him capable of taking and destroying the Ring to Mount Doom As conclusion, there are some values of heroism Frodo Baggins.
