* '''Defied''':
** The writer is a ''big'' fan of AnyoneCanDie; his characters don't last ''long enough'' to become a CreatorsPet.
** The author freely admits to Charlie being the CreatorsPet, but treats the character the same as all the others, to the point that [[InformedAbility he doesn't seem like a pet at all]].
* '''Discussed''': ???
* '''Conversed''': "Oh, man, not this guy again..". "Who, Charlie?" "Yeah, him. He's taking over the show, and it's really hurting the quality".
* '''Deconstructed''': Charlie, a character in a ShowWithinAShow exists within the writer's blind spot because he's what the author always ''wanted'' to be: confident, outgoing, witty, with lots of friends... the writer put so much of himself into Charlie that he doesn't want to acknowledge the character's {{Hatedom}}, as it strikes a little too close to home. So when the fans are torturing and murdering Charlie in Flash animations on the in-universe equivalent of {{Newgrounds}}, the writer sinks into depression and [[DrivenToSuicide takes his own life]].
* '''Reconstructed''': Charlie from the ShowWithinAShow isn't the author's idealized self image, as much of a MartyStu as he may be. Rather, he's what the writer thinks all of humanity should live up to, and thus doesn't sink into a depression when the fans hate Charlie but rather treats it as the fans being intimidated by how great he is. They crucified Jesus, you know.
* '''Plotted A Good Waste''':
** Turns out the writer was just settling Charlie up for a ''major'' fall in a WhamEpisode where all his faults come to the forefront and have disastrous consequences, causing him to lose his [[TrueCompanions friends]]' respect and setting him up as TheAtoner.
** Charlie is deliberately written to be annoying...so the audience will root against him when he [[TheMole betrays the team]].
* '''Played For Laughs''': Charlie is set up by the other characters as over-the-top perfect so that when he fails (OnceAnEpisode or more), we laugh at the disconnect between his public acclaim and how he actually sucks.
* '''Played For Drama''': Charlie's awesome perfectness [[OvershadowedByAwesome overshadows his little brother Daniel]], who is the show's actual protaganist. Granted, Charlie gets more air time even when the fans want to see Daniel more often, but Daniel's conflicts are that much more poignant because Charlie is [[AlwaysSomeoneBetter just that much better at everything]].
