* SadistTeacher: Reginald "Popeye" Scruton generally tends to make Adrian's life hell in the early books. He's implied to have been in his prime during the days when teachers could still physically beat students. Adrian's diagram of interpersonal relationships in ''Growing Pains'' lists him as a villain alongside Mr. Lucas, Margaret Thatcher and the Manpower Services Commission.

* HappyEndingOverride: ''The Wilderness Years'' ends on a bittersweet but clearly optimistic note for Adrian - he has just been through a very low period of his life having lost his SecondLove Bianca, but even that pain has made him mature as a person with him finally getting over Pandora, and he is beginning a very promising new relationship with Jo Jo. There is even a suggestion he might have a future in writing after all. Six years later when ''The Cappuccino Years'' starts he's gone through a bitter divorce, been left a struggling single parent, is back to be hopelessly in awe of Pandora and his writing career is no closer to getting anywhere.

** The series as a whole gets progressively darker throughout, which is only natural given that Adrian is growing up, shedding some of his childhood innocence, and experiencing the world as an adult. However, as the series goes on, his friends and family lose their patience with and tolerance of him; admittedly he brings some of it on himself, but at times they're quite openly hostile or nasty towards him, which is a bit jarring compared to earlier books. Additionally, while some of his complaining still comes off as immature {{Wangst}}, he also accumulates more genuine worries, often mentions feeling lonely, unhappy and inadequate, and is clearly showing the effects of his troubled adolescence.
