SuperTrope for AscendedFanboy, TheEveryman, GreekChorus and UnfazedEveryman (See CanonicalListOfSubtleTropeDistinctions for an explanation of the difference), and related to EscapistCharacter and OtakuSurrogate. Parent of LeadYouCanRelateTo (see parent/child relationships page). Examples below should not cover these.

The audience surrogate is often present to help the audience identify with a character within the work. This can happen several ways;

to:

->'''Nikki Reed (Rosalie Hale):''' So, Kristen, there must be something really special about you for Creator/{{Robert|Pattinson}} to take such a liking to you and risk the lives of his entire family. Tell us about yourself.\\
'''Creator/KristenStewart (Bella Swan):''' Me? Oh, no. I'm just a hollow placeholder for all of the teenage girls in the audience to project their personalities onto. I have none of my own whatsoever.
-->-- ''Literature/{{Twilight}}: [[http://www.the-editing-room.com/twilight.html The Abridged Script]]''

The audience surrogate is often present to help the audience identify with a character within the work. This can happen The immersion supports the SuspensionOfDisbelief, and the audience feels a strong sympathy to those characters, often facilitating a ProtagonistCenteredMorality. To create an audience surrogate, several ways;techniques are available:
# The character is responsible for [[PointOfView providing the audience with the story]].
# The character [[TheWatson asks questions of the other characters to clarify their thoughts]].
# The character [[MetaGuy says things the audience would say]].
# A character who the audience (or the children in the audience) doesn't just sympathize with, but are supposed to actively see themselves as -- by desire, by default, or by author inference.
