Sliver is a classic example of an anti-hero. Through Kelly's eyes, we learn about the supercorporations, and we're led to believe that these supercorporations developed a dystopian oligarchal nation. A classic hero would attempt to dismantle these supercorporations, but Sliver is not only apathetic about the supercorporations, he actively helps one.

No Silver is not an anti-hero. All his actions are justified. He did what he felt right and so I believe that he is not an anti-hero.

I think his actions of wanting to kill Ancarn were justified. I also feel that his job for World, Inc. as an assassin was also justified. I don't think that Sliver realized that things could be different. Once he did, he changed his ways, and I think that makes him a hero in the end. After all, he did save the shredders and Kelly.
