Well, it seems a bit weird, but I want to know whether following sentences is allowable to use in a informal context.

He was alive, and a great hero.

Tom is alive and an amazing player.

  • The only context in which I can imagine this being said is if a man is found to have survived some disaster in which his actions have revealed him to be heroic. – Kate Bunting Dec 16 '20 at 9:00

He was alive, and a great hero.

Standalone, this sentence could use some more clarity. When was he alive? In addition, the two details you're trying to give about the subject don't fit well together, so it's better to separate them, or make them fit well by adding some stuff.

He was alive when that war had happened, and he became a great hero because of his unmatched contribution/efforts.

Coming to the second sentence...

Tom is alive and an amazing player.

Tom is an amazing player. This sentence by itself tells us that Tom is still alive.
