Could you have misheard me? I am not of darkness.
Have I answered your plea? I'm known for my starkness.
I am the hero's hero. I fight monsters and demons.
Valor have I. Fear, zero. Courage, I fight against reason.
A damsel in distress, I'll rescue and save,
Listen all who oppress, I will be your grave.
Righteous and virtuous, hear my great call!
Ye who try to hurt us, your blade will fall!
What am I?
