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]]. 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.

* 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.

** 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 a city (in the MCU, he's from Brooklyn) during the Great Depression. Steve's complex like that.

* The titular Chuck of AmazingGraceAndChuck is an example, which is part of what makes his anti-nuclear weapon protest an interesting enough story in-universe that it gathers some attention even before Amazing Grace joins him.
