** In just about any theatrical or film version, Peter was played by a woman, until [[Film/PeterPan the 2003 version]] came in.
** Disney's ''[[Disney/PeterPan Peter Pan]]'' had Peter voiced by a boy, Bobby Driscol.
** The only male to have played Peter Pan on Broadway is Jack Noseworthy, who was an understudy in ''Jerome Robbins' Broadway'', a musical revue of highlights of choreographer Jerome Robbins' work, which included the Mary Martin Broadway version.

Peter Pan is a {{t|heTrickster}}rickster, only nominally human. In his first appearance, ''Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens'' (which was one of several stories included in the book ''Literature/TheLittleWhiteBird''), Peter is alluded to as being [[LiminalBeing half bird]]; as all children in fact come from birds, but only Peter is close enough to his youth to remember ''being'' a bird. In Neverland, he is more like a playful demigod, with aspects of Puck and Pan. The character has become something of a cultural symbol for youthful exuberance and innocence, especially if it persists into adulthood; it also evokes the poignant flip side - never becoming truly mature. Music/MichaelJackson identified with the character so much he named his estate (with an amusement park, et. al. on the grounds) "Neverland Ranch". The darker implications of eternal youth and perpetual irresponsibility is likely why a well-remembered 1987 film about teen vampires was called ''Film/TheLostBoys''.

%% * CluelessChickMagnet: Peter.All the female characters in the story except Mrs. Darling are in love with Peter. He never catches on.


Added DiffLines:

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Slightly, being "madly addicted to the drinking of water when he was hot," has swelled up and become the fattest of the Lost Boys -- and so he has secretly expanded his entrance to the secret underground home so that he can fit through it. This means his entrance is large enough for Hook to get through and enter the underground home to poison Peter.

Added DiffLines:

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:Most versions tell of Wendy, her brothers, and the Lost Boys [[GrowingUpSucks all growing up]], with varying degrees of happiness or regret. Wendy herself in time - although it's hinted she hoped Peter would have come for her - get married and has a daughter. Peter himself [[WhoWantsToLiveForever stuck forever as a boy]] revisits Wendy every year - mostly - as promised but at some point she becomes too old to play with him. Tinker Bell, being a fairy, had passed years before. However, Wendy's daughter Jane soon becomes Peter's companion playing out the same role as her mother, and it's implied that future generations of girls through Wendy's bloodline will do the same.]]
