'''Basic Trope''': A minor character gets an important role in adaptations, expansion or sequel.
* '''Straight''': In the original ''Alice and Bob'', Charlie was a casual friend of the title characters. In an adaptation, he becomes their best friend.
* '''Exaggerated''': In the original version, Charlie was only a casual acquaintance who [[TheGhost received occasional mentions but was never seen]]. In the adaptation, he becomes one of the most important characters, [[SpotlightStealingSquad possibly more important than]] AliceAndBob themselves.
* '''Downplayed''': Charlie's scenes have somewhat more importance in the adaptation than the original.
* '''Justified''': The adaptation is set three years after the original show. In that time, Alice and Bob have become closer to Charlie.
** Charlie's actor pulled a OneSceneWonder, which stuck in the audience's head enough that the writers realized they had a great EnsembleDarkhorse on their hands.
* '''Inverted''': Diane is [[DemotedToExtra a major character in the original, but only a minor one in the adaptation]].
* '''Subverted''': Charlie looks like he'll have a bigger role in the adaptation, then he gets pushed back to his original role.
* '''Double Subverted''': But he quickly gets it back.
* '''Parodied''': In the adaptation of ''Alice and Bob'', a random rock on the ground takes over as the protagonist.
* '''Zig Zagged''': There are several adaptations, in which the sizes of the characters' roles vary. Only AliceAndBob are major characters in all adaptations.
* '''Averted''': All characters are just as important in the adaptation as in the original.
* '''Enforced''':
** Charlie was [[EnsembleDarkhorse quite popular with the fans]].
** The adaptation is [[AdaptationExpansion longer than the original]] so the creators expanded on his subplot to fill up time.
** The adaptation is [[CompressedAdaptation shorter than the original]], so Charlie's subplot takes up more time.
* '''Lampshaded''': "The new ''Alice and Bob''. Now with 30% more Charlie scenes!"
* '''Invoked''': AliceAndBob decide to spend more time with Charlie.
* '''Exploited''': ???
* '''Defied''':
** AliceAndBob refuse to be friends with Charlie.
** [[PutOnABus Charlie moves away.]]
* '''Discussed''': "Charlie is you guys' best friend? I really didn't know he was that close."
* '''Conversed''':
-->"Who is this Charlie guy? Was he in the book?"\\
"Yeah, but he was not that big of a character?"
* '''Played For Laughs''': Charlie was somewhat of a CloudCuckoolander in the original show. In the adaptation, he is even more of one due to {{Flanderization}}. This, combined with his increased screen time, makes for a much more humorous adaptation.
* '''Played For Drama''': Charlie [[KilledOffForReal dies]] in the final episode of the adaptation. Because he's a major character, his death is more dramatic than it would have been in the original.
