Pedophiles are bad, right? There are few things you'll get more agreement on than that, especially when they're open about it. But sometimes the damaging nature of pedophilia is glossed over and played for laughs or as being harmless, thus resulting in the trope known as Lolicon.

Put simply, a lolicon is a pedophile. But instead of the usual villainous or disgusting attitude normally attributed to one, they are instead treated as being a little creepy, but ultimately harmless. Instead of being played to repulse the audience, a lolicon is normally a humorous figure. [[ValuesDissonance Because of Western media views]], you are highly unlikely to see a Lolicon outside of Japan-derived works such as Anime, VisualNovels or VideoGames.

Note: Despite this being largely a Japanese trope, it does not actually signify that the Japanese are more approving of pedophilia. On the contrary, the Japanese are just as disapproving as Western countries. Thus, calling yourself a lolicon in real life would be a bad idea if you were visiting Japan, as in normal conversation it ''does'' simply mean pedophile. Adding on to that, not all pedophiles in a Japanese work are lolicons. If they are actually taken seriously and as having something that is genuinely wrong with them, they are at best a subversion of Lolicon.

Just for added confusion, there is a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lolita_fashion Japanese fashion style]] called "Lolita" ([[ElegantGothicLolita and an accompanying trope]]), which has very little to do with this.

The whole thing may be the result of an accidentally compromising situation, making this MistakenForPedophile instead.

Lolicon or shotacon are terms for a particular type of pedophilic character (a lolicon targets girls, and a shotacon, boys) most commonly found
in JapaneseMedia. The names are derived from ''Literature/{{Lolita}}'' and the definition, as per main character from ''Anime/{{Gigantor}}'' respectively, while "-con" is short for "complex"; the TRS discussion thread: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=1314585955000691000 .

Pedophiles are bad, right? There are few things you'll get more agreement on than that, especially when they're open about it. But sometimes
overlook the damaging nature aspect of pedophilia is glossed over and use a pedophile character for comedic purposes. Therefore, rather than being played for laughs or as being harmless, thus resulting in to repulse the trope known as Lolicon.

Put simply,
audience, a lolicon or shotacon in mainstream works is a pedophile. But instead of the usual villainous or disgusting attitude normally attributed to one, they are instead treated as being a little creepy, but ultimately harmless. Instead of being played to repulse the audience, a lolicon is normally a humorous figure. [[ValuesDissonance Because of Western media views]], you are highly unlikely to see a Lolicon lolicon or shotacon outside of Japan-derived works such as Anime, VisualNovels or VideoGames.

Note: Despite
- while Western media can and will use pedophilia for jokes, it tends to contain stronger elements of BlackHumor. Note that the terms do not refer to ''any'' pedophile regardless of portrayal, nor does the existence of this being largely a Japanese trope, it does not actually signify trope imply that the Japanese are more approving of pedophilia. On the contrary, the Japanese are just pedophilia.

Compare/contrast PaedoHunt for portrayals of pedophilia

Just
MistakenForPedophile for added confusion, there is a ''false allegations'' of pedophilia being PlayedForLaughs. The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lolita_fashion Japanese fashion style]] called "Lolita" ([[ElegantGothicLolita and an accompanying trope]]), our trope ElegantGothicLolita are only tangentially related. Lolicon and shotacon may also refer to the actual paraphilia of pedophilia, as well as works with lolicon/shotacon themes or fanservice, which has very little to do with this.
