* Klus from {{Creator/Studio100}}'s ''Series/KabouterPlop'' series is very popular with children in Belgium. This might be to due his trickster and fun personality he has compared to the other gnomes from the show. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KRZW7liB94M Here's an example from a live show in Plopsa Indoor Hasselt.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse'':
** Spider-Man fills this role in ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar''. ''Civil War'' is one of the MCU's darker films, but while most of the adults are wrapped up in angst-ridden plots about superhero politics, divided loyalty, grief, and revenge, Spider-Man is a wisecracking teenage fanboy who's just excited to be there.
** Princess Shuri in ''Film/BlackPanther''. Shuri's a grown woman in the comics, but in the movie, she's a cheerful, meme-loving TeenGenius who provides much of the film's humor.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WebAnimation/DSBTInsaniT'': Bear, Duck, Balloon, and to a lesser extent, Snake. All of them are child characters who get into mischief as kids will do.

* Spongebob in ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' is wacky, acts like he just got out of third grade, and is yellow.

* ''Franchise/MonsterHigh'' tends to give short, pink, girly Draculaura a ton of screentime and merchandise as she's popular with kids. Howleen also fills this role as she's the TagalongKid, particularly in ''Fright On!''. Each was also given [[ADayInTheLimelight her own]] TV special with a plot of "we have to save (Draculaura/Howleen) from (new character X)": ''Why Do Ghouls Fall In Love'' and ''13 Wishes''.

** Baymax, in his design of a robot that looks like a huggable, plush marshmallow was clearly designed to attract children, not to mention his likable and kind personality. Many plush toys based on him are popular. His super suit also adds some flavor into him when it comes to action figures

** [[OneOfTheKids Pinkie Pie]] also has an above-average amount of kid appeal (she's basically TheHub's mascot at this point), though the show often uses her as a means to [[TakeThat take shots at]] the mentality underlying many uses of this trope (for example, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2xYQsKUaqUs "The Piggy Dance,"]] which [[ParodiedTrope parodies]] the overly simplistic and repetitive nature of many children-directed songs, and seals the deal by causing the infant Cake twins to [[IntendedAudienceReaction cry in response to it]]).

* The comic series ''ComicBook/{{Saga}}'' is a series that is not for kids, but Ghus, who is a harp seal like alien, looks a lot like a character that would appeal to kids due to his appearance, his kind personality, his yellow overalls, and the fact that he doesn't use profanity unlike the rest of the characters.
