Abstract

Although it is similar to other traditional Turkish epics in terms of Kan-Kapçıkay epic structure, there are differences in terms of content with other epics. Unlike other Turkish epics of Kan-Kapçıkay Destiny, which is different from the primary type heroes used in Turkish epics, it is not a hero type fighting for the people but it is separated from other epics as it is an epic sub-ject of own personal struggle. The characteristics of heroes and heroes seen in other epics (extraordinary birth, rapid growth, different from other children, proving oneself and getting a name, leading the people, winning wars, etc.) are not seen in this destiny. Kan-Kapchıkay, the epic hero, emerges as a grown-up person. Although the Kan-Kapchıkay epic hero is different from other epic heroes, the motifs used in the destiny are similar to the motifs in traditional Turkish epics (animal motif, magic motif, naming motif, etc.).
