What about a card like Blinding Speed, that isn't so much targeting the hero as an "attack" or "trap" but rather simply instructs the OL to "choose a hero, and test _____" to determine whether a benefit is received for the monster?does it target a hero? yes.
(In the case of Blinding Speed, a monster receiving additional movement points.)
Does that make any difference? Seems more a trigger than an attack to me, but that may be a false distinction.
is hero token a hero? no.
