Added DiffLines:

* In the WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo episode "Hey You, Don't Forget About Me In Your Memory," Robin is fixated on being the All-American Boy while making sure the rest of the Titans stick to their labels. He ends up failing every aspect of it and realizes he's meant to be the bully.

* Literature/TomSawyer and Literature/HuckleberryFinn.

to:

* Literature/TomSawyer and Literature/HuckleberryFinn.Literature/HuckleberryFinn: the two eponymous boys are good fits for this trope, but the world they exist in is far less idyllic than the Eagleland they might expect to appear in. The DeliberateValuesDissonance is sobering in terms of the racism and casual violence the two boys come across. Tom Sawyer in particular is dedicated to whimsical pranks regardless of the people that get caught up in them.

* Steve Rogers (aka ComicBook/CaptainAmerica) pretty much fits the general personality of this trope, although he was a terrible athlete as a child, in large part due to his GeekPhysique. After he got the Super-Soldier Serum, he was able to embody the trope even more.
** In many ways, Steve is also subversion. While his personality fits the trope, his childhood is the exact opposite as the child of Irish immigrants growing up in the slums of NYC during the Great Depression. Steve's complex like that.

This species has seldom been seen in recent decades, and naturalists have put it on the endangered species list. The All-American boy is [[CaptainObvious male]], almost always white, typically [[HairOfGoldHeartOfGold blond-haired]] and [[InnocentBlueEyes blue-eyed]]; sometimes he'll also have buckteeth and YouthfulFreckles. He is marked by his love of baseball, by having a skill with rural machinery and hunting firearms beyond his years, and his propensity to emit sounds like "Jeepers!" and "Gee Whiz!". The All-American boy usually dwells in EverytownAmerica in the heart of {{Eagleland}} within which he is as [[FreeRangeChildren free as the air, pedaling everywhere on his bicycle]] or spending hours having innocent fun in his treehouse. He is naive but charming and always polite (the worst he dishes out is "You shut up!"), and he treats his parents (who most likely are a StandardFiftiesFather and a HouseWife) and other elders with respect. He is probably a [[ScoutOut Boy Scout]] (or a Cub Scout if still in elementary school). If he has a sibling, it will be an [[BigBrotherWorship older brother to idolize]] or a little sister [[BigBrotherInstinct to protect]] -- perhaps both.

The closest DistaffCounterpart would probably be GirlNextDoor. Likely grows up to be an AllAmericanFace.

* NormanRockwell depicted many variations of him in his paintings, notably "A Day in the Life of a Boy," illustrations for the Boy Scouts of America, the Willie Gillis series, his illustrations for ''Literature/TomSawyer'' and ''Literature/HuckleberryFinn''... Really, it's hard to think of a Rockwell painting that doesn't involve him in some way.

* Orel Puppington of ''WesternAnimation/MoralOrel'' is a Deconstruction of this; it's specifically a parody of DaveyAndGoliath
