Alexander the Macedonian is a person who played a great role in Persian history and literature. He is also called a gojastack and destroyer, and also called the ideal king and prophet. In folk literature, Alexander is also a champion and a king of adventure and a prophet with the aim of promoting divine religion. One of the folk texts, partly devoted to the life of Alexander, is the Tarsusi’s Darab-Nameh. An interesting point is that Alexander has a significant difference in the Tarsusi’s Darab-Nameh, with Alexander, other Iskandar-nameh of Persian literature, such as Shahnameh, Nizami’s Iskandar-nameh, and the Pseudo-callistenes. That's mean Alexander is not a powerful king of Persian literature. Tarsusi has removed sanctity and powers from this legendary king with various techniques. The purpose of this study is to detect these techniques. In this essay, the recognition of the Characterization of Alexander in the Tarsusi’s Darab-Nameh, has been considered in order to identify the differences in the Tarsusi’s Characterization and to identify the methods of Eliminating Authority from Alexander. The results show that Trasusi has brought many adventures and incidents in his story to gradually and on the basis of Acceptable plot, the authority will be removed from Alexander. He also displayed Alexander weakly And the characters in front of Alexander Like Pourandokht, have shown strong.
