One example of irony in Call it Courage is Mafatu's name. He is given the name Mafatu because it means "Stout Heart". This is a significant name in a culture where bravery is lauded above all other traits. The name is ironic because Mafatu is terrified of the sea in a world where the ocean and what it provides is the most integral part of life.
