Why do not we need to use super() for Character class?


Just a simple question. I did not get it. Could you please explain why do not we need to use super() for Character class but Agile and Sneaky require super().

So, because that is the final class that initialized? All final initialized can go without super(). Total confusion.

But why Agile and Sneaky require super(). They are not subclasses of Character, right?

This is because Character class is the class where all inheritance ends (if you don't count the implicit inheritance from the master object class all classes inherit from). So since Character is the most base class and doesn't inherit from anywhere, then it doesn't take a super() method call from elsewhere.

Hope this helps.
