Teen Commander

Teenager in command position with abnormal levels of responsibility

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:
Trope
A teenager, usually a girl, who is in command of an organization, commanding many people who have significantly more experience than her. However, her subordinates are completely loyal to her, and never question her leadership ability. The teen CEO sometimes has some special ability, though this is rarely displayed, and frequently seems to be an Informed Ability. Another situation that leads to this trope might be that the girl inherited her position, and the organization is loyal to her family. This trope frequently appears in anime, where the CEO overlaps with the Yamato Nadeshiko.

Examples: Tessa Testarosa, commander of Mithril, from Full Metal Panic! Ruri Hadou in Demonbane (particularly the anime) Subaru, commander of the Crimson Knights, in .//hack/SIGN
