Byronic hero, in English literature, and little man and superfluous man, in Russian literature, which respectively, have been developed by George Gordon Byron and Alexander Pushkin, later, has become a symbol or a criterion to writers and poets. They are heroes with unique characteristics, which have led to extensive development in the style of writing and storytelling. This paper is trying to study the characteristics of Byronic hero, Little man, and the Superfluous man, and after examining them, remarkable literary works and their origin, find that if lord Byron's Byronic hero, in English literature is the same "little man" of Russian literature or its "superfluous man"; and in general, what is the effect(s) of Byronism on Rus- sian literature and development of its heroes
