Abstract

The hero characters, like most people know, are just like Superman, Spider-Man, Wonder Woman, who gain superpower, stronger than ordinary people, and fight monsters to save the world. However, there are also the hero characters that do not gain superpower. This study concerned on finding out the differences between Flik of A Bug?s Life and Flint of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs movies as the ordinary hero characters by using Campbell?s hero?s journey theory. This study was a qualitative research with content analysis approach. Data of this study were words including narrations and dialogues taken from A Bug?s Life and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs movie scripts. This study showed that Flik was a dependent hero character, while Flint was an independent one. In Flik?s case, he was considered as the dependent hero character due to his natural trait as the ant colony to put the colony above everything else. While, Flint was considered as the independent hero character based on his reasons of doing the adventure: to fulfill his own desire of being acknowledged by his dad and to show his attractive side to the girl that he fell in love with, Sam Sparks. To conclude, regardless the fact that both Flik and Flint were included as the ordinary hero characters, this study had shown they still had their own version of hero characters.

Yet, an issue of one?s identity appear for those who come from the two cultures as it appeared in Amy Tan?s The Joy Luck Club. Jing-Mei Woo, a Chinese-born American had issue of defining her identity due to the hybridity circumstance she achieved as the daughter of immigrant parents. This research aimed to examine the portrayal of Jing-Mei Woo?s hybridity identity and the way she developed her hybrid identity. This research was a qualitative research for the data were in the form of words from The Joy Luck Club novel. Barry?s theory about hybrid identity was used to answer the research questions towards Jing-Mei Woo character. The result showed that Jing-Mei Woo experienced hybridity as she was unable to define herself whether it was her past-self (Chinese) or present-self (American), felt out of place not knowing exactly her identity form of the two cultures, and having the hybrid identity between Chinese and American cultures. While during the process, Jing-Mei Woo developed her hybrid identity by getting through the four stages: she ignored her origin?s identity as a Chinese woman, denying her Chinese identity by telling her mother most of times that she was not a Chinese and that was the reason she could not understand a bit about her mother?s culture, maintaining the American?s way of thinking as she thought that was her identity despite the fact that she was also a Chinese, and finally realising that in order to define herself, she accepted her Chinese blood and admitted her hybrid identity as a Chinese-American woman. Keywords: migration, hybrid identity  ABSTRAK Migrasi merupakan dampak luar biasa dari kolonisasi. Peristiwa ini (migrasi) menyebabkan perpindahan sekelompok orang dengan jumlah yang banyak dari suatu negara (yang dikuasai atau dikolonisasi) ke negara lain. Biasanya sebagai akibat dari migrasi ini terbentuklah suatu masyarakat baru yang sistem-sistemnya mengandung percampuran budaya, norma-norma, serta nilai-nilai yang telah menyesuaikan diri dengan perubahan yang terjadi pada masyarakatnya yang terdiri dari para migran dan non-migran. Akan tetapi, ada satu masalah yang muncul berkenaan dengan masyarakat baru yang terbentuk ini: permasalahan mengenai identitas diri seseorang yang berasal dari dua budaya berbeda seperti yang ada pada novel Amy Tan, The Joy Luck Club. Jing-Mei Woo, seorang anak perempuan dari orang tua imigran Cina dan memiliki darah Cina tetapi menetap di Amerika, memiliki permasalahan dalam menentukan identitas dirinya yang sebenarnya karena ia hidup di lingkungan hibriditas. Studi ini merupakan studi kualitatif karena menganalisa data yang berupa kata-kata dari novel The Joy Luck Club. Teori dari Barry mengenai identitas hibrida digunakan untuk menjawab pokok-pokok permasalahan pada karakter Jing-Mei Woo. Hasil studi ini memperlihatkan bahwa Jing-Mei Woo mengalami hibriditas karena ia tidak mampu menentukan identitas dirinya, apakah identitas itu adalah dirinya yang dimasa lalu sebagai seorang Cina ataukah dirinya yang sekarang sebagai seorang Amerika, merasa tidak memiliki tempat yang cocok dengan dirinya, dan memiliki identitas hibrida antara budaya Cina dan Amerika. Selama proses Jing-Mei Woo mengembangkan identitas hibridanya, ia melewati empat tahapan yaitu: Jing-Mei Woo mengabaikan identitas aslinya sebagai wanita Cina, menolak identitasnya sebagai seorang Cina dengan selalu mengatakan pada ibunya bahwa ia bukanlah seorang Cina maka wajar jika ia tidak bisa mengerti sedikit pun soal budaya ibunya, menganggap bahwa identitas sebenarnya yaitu dengan mengikuti pola pikir seorang Amerika terlepas dari fakta bahwa ia juga memiliki darah seorang Cina dalam tubuhnya, dan akhirnya Jing-Mei Woo menerima darah Cina dalam tubuhnya dan mengakui identitas hibridanya sebagai seorang keturunan Cina-Amerika, yang membuatnya mampu menentukan identitas dirinya yang sebenarnya.  Kata Kunci: migrasi, identitas hibrida
