These include being a boy who charms his teacher without even trying, or a child star who loathes his parents for cleaning his "dirty mouth" with soap after he let slip the AtomicFBomb.

Subverted with the fact that they always end up winning "[[DoomedMoralVictors Moral Victories]]" since the foes they go up against (Calvin's Mom, Ms. Wormwood, Rosaline) are people who have far more power and authority than Calvin.

* In {{Doug}}. the titular character has several moments per episode where he seems to break from reality and imagine himself as this perfect kid doing things even most adults can't do, like lead an army despite being 12, solve an impossible equation, and save the world as a superhero who conserves his identity without even trying.
