Joseph Campbell has studied the world's stories, showing that there is a single and universal pattern titled "The Hero's Journey" for all the stories, even lifes. Choosing the lifestyle and character of the heroes can deepen the adolescent's view of the purpose of life and it is important to emphasize the hero as one of the elements of the adolescent story. The mythical-herotic novel series of Ashvazdangheh and its main character, with its immortal trait and meaningful purpose, was a good choice for examining the heroic journey pattern.Therefore, the purpose of this study is to illustrate and critique the hero's journey and to examine the differences between Ashvazdangheh's story with Campbell's heroic journey pattern. So, the seventeen stages of Campbell's model were explored in the journey of the teen's hero of the story. It is identified in this study that the hero of this story triumphs in his inner battle and against the evil (Ahriman)'s wizards, he becomes the master of the two worlds. The researcher also considered displacements and repetitions in stages "Belly of the Whale, Supernatural Aid, Woman as the Temptress and The Road of Trials" compared to Campbell's pattern. According to the reviews, it can be said that the hero's journey pattern is based on stories from the world, cannot entirely match fictional events. Of course, the story of Ashvazdangheh, in spite of the differences, coincides with the overall pattern of the Campbell hero's journey.
