The pettanko is a FlatCharacter. [[{{Pun}} Literally]].

This might actually [[ACupAngst bother her]] if she is already considered childish and prone to tantrums, so the sore spot becomes endearing. Occasionally, she is [[PetitePride proud]] of that flat chest as a way to appeal to a certain demographic of guys, although real fans in practice make a distinction between merely being flat-chested and actually being underage. Nonetheless, it is very useful in creating a character [[VagueAge who looks younger]] [[OlderThanTheyLook than she actually is]].

Also known as "Delicious Flat Chest", or DFC, a term apparently coined by {{Image Boards}}.

Now has its own [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xX050NcDNAU song]].

''Note: This is a fan-speak term, not a trope. Do not use it as such.'' Doesn't mean it can't still be used, but just not ''as'' a trope.

For actual tropes with examples, see ACupAngst and PetitePride.
