- Person-against-self – an internal conflict of feelings.
- Person-against-person – the typical protagonist vs. antagonist scenario.
- Person-against-society – the protagonist battles against the larger organizations of society (or a system of beliefs held by society).
- Person-against-nature – the protagonist is threatened by a component of nature.
