Heroes were descendants of gods and people which had a human appearance, but meanwhile had superhuman forces and resources. Heroes were the son of Indra, Arjuna, the son of Shiva, Skanda or Karttikeya, the son of Odin (Votan), Sigmund, the sons of Zeus, Heracles, Perseus, Dioscurians, and also many other legendary persons. They had been born that gods could win demons, many of which had been granted immunity from gods but who could be defeated by people.
Heroes appear on the historical arena rather recently - not earlier the catastrophe at the boundary of the Fourth and Fifth world epochs (and here), and not later than the last catastrophe (or here). As consequence of it, acts of heroes take a basic part of narrations about fights of gods and demons. Heroes of the greatest Old Indian poem "Mahabharata" - two conflicting families (clans) of Pandavas and Kauravas. Pandavas, seemingly, begin their genealogy from gods-incomers - Adityas, Kauravas - from Daityas and Danavas. The leader of Pandavas, Arjuna was the son of Indra. The main hero of the other great Indian epic poem the "Ramayana", Rama (a human avatar or earth incarnation of Vishnu), in essence plays analogous role.
The earliest events in the history of Earth are described in the "Mahabharata" in the form of memories of separate persons against the background of the main narration about a figth of heroes - Pandavas and Kauravas
And Arjuna, and Rama take an active part in destruction of sworn enemies of Adityas - Daityas and Danavas. They also exterminated native inhabitants of Earth - Rakshasas, Yakshas and other "demons". Rama notably succeeded in annihilation of the great civilization of Rakshasas. His allies were semipeople-semimonkeys Vanaras led by Hanuman, who was the hero too - the son of Apsara Anjanta and god of wind Vayu.
Annihilation of the great civilization of Rakshasas by Rama should give rise to surprise. As I wrote in my book "Disappeared inhabitants of the Earth", Vishnu originally was one of the main gods of Rakshasas - Rudras - Yakshas. Why has he rebelled against the own people?
Perhaps, because the leader of Rakshasas Ravana and his relatives - Viradha, Indrajit, Marichi - have imagined themselves above Vishnu. Probably, they began to defy the laws directed them for implementation by Vishnu or Brahma. At that and other as if follows from the "Ramayana". But, the third it is possible too: Vishnu became one of the gods of Adityas and together with them struggled with the people which have not submitted to them.
