May I ask why the real life examples of just about every trope seem to be slashed?
07:15:46 AM May 8th 2012
01:32:42 AM Mar 18th 2012
Why did the name change? Precious Child can refer to both genders and this trope only referred to little boys?! Just stupid...
12:44:04 PM Mar 18th 2012
The trope can refer to both sexes. That's why a gender-neutral name was chosen.
05:19:15 PM Mar 21st 2012
If the trope can refer to both sexes, yet the vast majority of examples are male, then is it okay if I change the uses of "she/her" in the description back to "he/him"?
06:13:34 AM Mar 22nd 2012
I'd prefer not. The examples are mostly male because the trope was originally written as male-specific, we're trying to make it clear that it can also apply to female characters so that people will start adding female examples.

But Token Mini-Moe is unisex now and a different trope. It's when qoute the trope's article "a young or young-looking member of the cast designed to appeal to one of two predominant demographics. The first is those who simply find the character absolutely adorable and/or endearing and feel protective towards him or her. The second are the Lolicons/Shotacons, who take an erotic or romantic interest in them."

Cute Shotaro Boy is not and never was the Spear Counterpart of Token Loli. They are different tropes (although they may overlap). They are both unisex, and they both now have unisex names so that people will use them both for both sexes, as they should. One of the reasons for renaming Token Loli was so that people would stop insisting it was Always Female.
06:26:46 PM Mar 8th 2012
Um, about how this trope is defined... Isn't it just "Wise Beyond Their Years"? I think I need a clarification on how to differentiate it. Just a side note: Cute Shotaro Boy (the trope's former name) is more of an audience reaction trope, so I think it's still valid as a trope, but they should be put in YMMV. Any thoughts?
09:47:22 AM Mar 9th 2012
The difference, as hashed out in the TRS thread, is that the Adorably Precocious Child is considered cute because they try to be mature and responsible, and often is not taken seriously by the other characters. Typically the APC is also less effective at being mature / responsible and is more likely to lapse back into kid behavior. If the overall effect is "aww, how cute, he's trying so hard", the character is more likely to be a Adorably Precocious Child, whereas if the overall effect is "this kid is as mature and competent as the adults" it's more likely to be Wise Beyond Their Years. If you want to make an audience reaction trope that would cover the things Cute Shotaro Boy was misused for, take it to YKTTW. Currently, Cute Shotaro Boy is a redirect to Adorably Precocious Child and should be used only for the definition given there.
01:17:44 AM Mar 11th 2012
Alright, point taken. Thanks =) Not sure if I'm gonna make a YKTTW for that for the time being, though.
05:11:37 PM Mar 7th 2012
In case anybody wants to look it up later: here is the TRS thread.
12:27:34 PM Mar 5th 2012
These examples have Zero Context or appear to be misuse. Please re-add with more context if they fit:
- Daisaku from Giant Robo.
- Obotchaman from Dr. Slump.
- The effeminate-looking Junior in the Read or Die TV series.
- Hippo's human form in Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch.
- Erio Mondial from Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha.
- Also, pre-Time Skip Yuuno and Chrono.
- Ukitake's zanpakutous in the recent filler arc are represented by twin shota kids.
- If young Byakuya in the "Past" arc doesn't fit this trope, I'll eat my hat! Too bad we only get a few minutes.
- Fullmetal Alchemist's Alphonse Elric was this before his soul was placed in a suit of armor.
- Selim Bradley from the same. In the first anime, he's a straight example. In the manga, he's actually a centuries-old shota from hell.
- Double Subverted; after Ed reduces him to his true form, he loses all his powers and memories and is being raised by his adoptive mother as a straight example of this trope.
- Edward was this for the beginning of the series, since he wasn't even a teenager yet, and when we see him as a kid; likewise Alphonse's and Ed's great-grandsons are this in the OVA. Al is also this at the end of the first anime and The Movie, but at the end of the manga and Brotherhood, he retains the memories and age he had gained as a suit of armor and becomes a Bishōnen instead. Wrath from the anime is a zigzagged version; initially he was this but he quickly subverted the trope.
- Selim Bradley from the same. In the first anime, he's a straight example. In the manga, he's actually a centuries-old shota from hell.
- Yukiteru from Mirai Nikki most definitely.
- Kohta from Elfen Lied. Later grows into something of a Bishōnen.
- Kota Shinyoji in Midori no Hibi, who gets kidnapped by a gang of female delinquents, who promptly fall in love with him when they see how adorable he looks in a dress.
- Gon and Killua from Hunterx Hunter, and especially Gon fit this troupe to a T.
- Chrono from Chrono Crusade looks (and sometimes even acts) like he's one of these, but he's a demon that's Really 700 Years Old and looks like a Bishounen in his true form.
- The three younger knights in Prétear.
- Would Kunikida of Suzumiya Haruhi count? Despite him being in high school he looks and sounds like he should be in middle school.
- Tadase from Shugo Chara!. He's even compared to a prince, even thought if you call him that, you're dead.
- Syrup from Yes! Precure 5's sequel Yes! Precure 5 Go Go. For some reason.
- Loki (yes, the god) gets turned into one in Mythical Detective Loki Ragnarok.
- "One day, Sealand-kun will be a huge empire that even that jerk England will bow to!"
- Latvia counts as well.
- The Holy Roman Empire also counts.
- Iceland is an older version of a Cute Shotaro Boy.
- Many of the nation-tans have been portrayed as this as children. America, Canada, England, the Italies (subverted in that everyone thought North Italy was a girl back then), Greece, Switzerland, Austria, Prussia, Russia, Japan, France, China (recently on the Author's Blog), and Spain for a slightly older version...
- The gender flipped versions of Taiwan and Liechtenstein count too.
- Gundam stuff:
- Quatre Raberba Winner in Gundam Wing, who only looks like a kid. Cemented by the end of Endless Waltz, where his hard hat falls over his eyes.
- Prayer Revirie of Gundam SEED X Astray, who takes Uso's place as the youngest Gundam protagonist (about eight or nine), plus some Ill Girl mixed in.
- Flit Asuno from Gundam Age is also another example, since that even though at the tender age of 14 he engineered his own Gundam, is initial lack of experience in piloting is often made fun of by Woolf Eneacle. To his credit, he doesn't lose composure. Much.
- Also, Yugi himself. Such big expressive eyes... Yugi follows Momiji's example above, since he's sixteen years old, but looks much younger.
- Kuroshitsuji's Ciel Phantomhive is a sort of creepy version of this.
- On that note, Near from Death Note is along that vein, only he's actually in his late teens by the time the series ends.
- Teru Mikami as a kid totally fits this trope as well.
- Nai from Karneval most certainly qualifies. Just look at this.◊ Instant "D'AW." His default chibified face is an even worse offender, though...
- Akito from Air Gear is a good example, he even wears a wedding dress in one occasion, although most of the time we only see his Super-Powered Evil Side Agito
- Tsuna from Katekyō Hitman Reborn! has most certainly evolved into this. It's impossible not to notice his blatant moe-ness in later chapters.
- Ranking Fuuta and Ginger Bread are also one of these.
- Arguably, Schrodinger from Hellsing.
- Garcia Lovelace from Black Lagoon. The closest thing to a Cool Big Sis for him, though, happens to be a killer maid from hell.
- From a bit of questionably-canon Star Wars manga, we have Tao, Vader's second and very much younger secret apprentice. (How many illegitimate apprentices did this guy have, anyway?!) ...Honestly, it's kind of creepy.
- Sousuke from Full Metal Panic! when he was young. Very Moe. You seriously just want to hug him. Ironically, even after he's sixteen, people still treat him like a kid and don't take him seriously.
- That would be because he's sixteen, Ie, a kid, albeit a slightly taller one with a greater chance of not screwing up and coming out of trauma a bit better. Those who actually know he's a child soldier tend not to treat him as a kid, of course.
- Arguably, Emile from Count Cain, Although he is possibly to messed up to fit this exactly.
- All of the three main characters in the Boku No Pico series.
- Ascot from Magic Knight Rayearth.
- Same with Clef. Who would believe that the kid is actually Really 700 Years Old and the most powerful mage in Cephiro?
- Conan Edogawa of Detective Conan. Glasses + bowtie + blue blazer + matching shorts = kawaii.
- Kohaku fits the trope better, as most of the fandom would say.
- Sota Higurashi, Kagome's little brother. Especially when he's mimicking Inuyasha's moves, and in particular, dressed up like Conan (see above) for his date.
- The human form of Sakutaro from Umineko no Naku Koro ni, seen in the fourth arc. Seriously, look at him.◊
- One of the most Bad Ass ones: Allen Walker from D.Gray-Man. Over time, he's shifted a bit from "most adorable thing ever" to "most adorable and hot thing ever," but he certainly started out as one and still cuts it close.
- Darker Than Black has two: July and Maki. July is extremely cute (as well as the male equivalent of an Emotionless Girl), but Maki kind of subverts it by being a sociopathic Yandere nutcase.
- Karluk Ayhan from Otoyomegatari pretty much epitomizes this archetype physically, being a cute twelve-year-old. But the story takes this one step further, in that his wife is twenty. However, this avoids being creepy for anyone involved as they live in 19th century Turkey.
- Satoshi from Higurashi no Naku Koro ni manages to be this, mixed with Bishōnen, even though he's sixteen years old. Not that he sounds like it in the Japanese version.
- The other Satoshi, Ash from Pokémon tends to be this at times.
- Mamoru Amami from GaoGaiGar also deserves a mention here. If he wasn't cute enough, he's a Space Fairy that really adds some heartwarming charm to what was otherwise a hot-blooded Super Robot show.
- One of the several ambiguously gay characters from Hana-Kimi, Shotaro Kadoma, qualifies as this for sure. He's a freshman in Japanese high school, but the only way he could really pass as male is if that male were 12 years old. Hilarity ensues when you consider that his name is considered incredibly masculine by Japanese standards.
- Nata of Gamerz Heaven.
- The protagonist's cousin, Io Azuma, manages to be this in Moonlight Lady, despite being well into his teens. Also, some of his charm may or may not stem from his being a "pretty boy" and not a "hunk".
- Most of the men in Code Geass appear to have been Cute Shotaro Boys when young. Rolo, however, deserves special mention in that he manages to be one at the age of sixteen.
- Subverted with V.V. who looks like a Cute Shotaro Boy with lustrous Rapunzel Hair but he's actually a man in his 60's, because he got his Code at an early age so his physical growth was stunted.
- Mao deserves a special mention for his latching onto the nearest female figure who would allow it, and for growing up to be a bishonen, arguably. Among other things.
- clone!Hitler and clone!Einstein from Afterschool Charisma. Justified, in that they're clones of the originals, but really, cute shotaro Hitler?!
- Pretty much every single character from Inazuma Eleven
- Bobby from Serendipity the Pink Dragon, who looks weirdly like Mac from FHFIF.
- Takeru and Koushiro from Digimon Adventure.
- Masaru from Karakuri Circus. Not sure if it applies after he Took a Level in Badass.
- Toboe from Wolf's Rain
- Syaoran from Cardcaptor Sakura
- It's easier to ask what male character in Wandering Son doesn't fit this. The title character is interesting, since he also fits Moe part of the time.
- Kyousuke from Puella Magi Madoka Magica kinda straddles the line between this trope and Bishounen. He's got a voice and - in the anime - the looks of the former, at least.
- Kimba from Kimba the White Lion.
- Siddharta Gotama, aka Shakyamuni Buddha, in Buddha by Osamu Tezuka.
- Kuroe from Kunisaki Izumo no Jijou.
- Taro from Hanaukyo Miad Tai.
- Luca from Macross Frontier
- Dragon Ball had Goku during its early issues, and later added Krillin. When it eventually got to the point where the timeskips made them adults, they moved out of the role, though Krillin had the misfortune of never growing very tall, to the point where Goku's son Gohan (who played the Adorably Precocious Child until the Majin Buu Saga) was taller than him despite being a pre-teen.
- Chirin from Chirin No Suzu is the furry equivalent of this for most of the movie.

- Midshipman Blakeney in Master and Commander: the Far Side of the World. Being a midshipman in the Napoleonic-era British navy, he also counts as a Child Soldier.
- Chekov in the reboot Star Trek film manages this, and young!Spock plays it completely straight.
- The Artful Dodger in the 1968 musical movie Oliver!. (He was specifically described as being a rather ugly child in the book, but movie adaptations always use cute kids.)
- The younger kid, Alexandre Motier (Didier Haudepin's acting would be scary-good at any age) in Les amitiés particulières usually released in English as This Special Friendship. If there's already a trope for European boys' boarding-school romances (another example Another Country, albeit with a mid-twenties actor as half the couple) then I've yet to encounter it, but feel free to contradict/enlighten me.
- Honey, I Shrunk the Kids has nerdy little Nick Szalinski. In Honey, I Blew Up the Kid, which takes place 3 years after the events of the first movie, he is a Keet.
- Petya Rostov from War and Peace is a mild version of this. He joins the Russian army because of a mix of responsibility over his family's sad state and patriotism.
- Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal gives us a Adorably Precocious Child Jesus Christ. Yes, really.
- How about Good Omens? Cute shota Antichrist.
- That's Anti-Antichrist, which somehow only makes it cuter.
- Greg Heffley of Diary of a Wimpy Kid can be one sometimes.
- The Codex Alera's Tavi starts out as one, by virtue of not looking his age. Evolves into Tall, Dark, and Handsome when he belatedly hits his growth spurt.
- Jake Chambers from The Dark Tower of Stephen King.
- Max Russo of Wizards of Waverly Place is this at the beginning of the series, but later he enters Justin's and Alex's world.
- Wesley Crusher of Star Trek: The Next Generation is a failed attempt at this, in that he tends to elicit no audience sympathy whatsoever.
- Ravi of Jessie towards everyone in the main cast.
- In Kamen Rider Skull: Message for Double, Shotaro is one of these, along with his loli friend Marina. He grows up to be the manly half of the future Double and Marina becomes the villain of the first two episodes.
- Some of the clients count as well, especially Akira from the epilogue. His innocence and ignorance contrasts very well with the jaded, depressed Shotaro.
- Manny on Modern Family.
- Justin Bieber.
- Pe Lanza, Restart's bassist. Unsurprisingly, he has more fangirls than the other members of the band.
- The entire boychoir genre is full of boys that demonstrate at least a few of these characteristics. The choir Libera is a very popular in Japan and other parts of Asia and is treated by screaming fangirls much the same way that conventional as a pop music Boy Band.
- Sora, Roxas, and Ventus from Kingdom Hearts, are teenaged versions, while Ienzo and young Riku are more typical ones.
- Roan in Grandia 2.
- Bridget from the Guilty Gear series not only falls into this category, but, as he is a convincing crossdresser, also appears to be custom-made for yaoi fandom.
- Shiva from the Galaxy Angel gameverse... or so the player thinks.
- Link from The Legend of Zelda, in games where he's not old enough to qualify as Bishōnen. He even has some adult women acting... questionably... toward him, though it could be all in fans' heads.
- All three of the Mother series' main Kid Heroes are Cute Shotaro Boys (Ninten, Ness, and Lucas, respectively). However, they're all Older Than They Look.
- Their ages are actually between 12 and 13, so it's not much of a surprise. But still...
- Larsa of Final Fantasy XII probably fits this trope.
- Fire Emblem:
- Though in Mithos's case, he's really 4,000+ years old and looks more like an adult when he isn't manipulating his appearance to look more like his 12-13 year old self.
- Also see Karol from Tales of Vesperia. Given how anime trope-heavy the Tales Series is, more will doubtless follow.
- Amusingly enough, Tales of Graces starts out with 3 of the main characters as shotas in the prologue.
- Machi Tobaye from the 4th game in the Ace Attorney series. It doesn't help either that he was originally meant to be designed as a girl.
- Lil' Edgeworth also counts, if the flashbacks from case 1-4 are to be believed.
- Yumihiko Ichiyanagi Ace Attorney Investigations 2 may be a teenager but his shortness and attitude qualifies...and then there's the fact no one takes him seriously and thinks he's an idiot.
- Laliar in Super Robot Wars R and Original Generation, being the only boy in Duminuss' creations. The rest are lolis.
- Elma, Selena's assistant from Alpha 3, would fit this trope to a T if he were human (or at least human-shaped).
- Beat from Eternal Sonata is the poster boy for this trope.
- pop'n music has countless examples; the best are Timer and Hugh.
- Brian of Quest 64.
- Nasir of Lagoon is somewhat older, unlike his brother Thor.
- Flower, Sun and Rain has a character actually named Shoutaro. He fits the aesthetic visually, but is closer to a Bratty Half-Pint in personality — although everyone except the main character and player seems to think he fits this trope, instead. He's also an egregious Fourth Wall Breaker in a game already full of Breaking the Fourth Wall.
- Edward in Clock Tower 2 (known as just Clock Tower outside Japan).
- Tails of the Sonic the Hedgehog games qualifies as a notable furry version with a sizable fanbase to match. Charmy Bee also counts, being one of the two youngest characters in the entire series (the other one being Cream, who can qualify as a Token Mini-Moe).
- Bugsy from Pokémon Gold and Silver. Yes, he's a boy. Look at him, he's◊ so◊..Cute◊.
Gold HibikiEthan, Lucas, and Pearl among other trainers.
- Red is this in all his incarnations, even when he's entered puberty generation 2 wise.
- Don't forget Wally. D'aww.◊
- Harvest Moon:
- Your son as a kid in A Wonderful Life, and most of your sons actually. Almost every game has a Cute Shotaro Boy from the get-go too, Tim and Hugh being most well-known.
- Seere in Drakengard, who sacrificed his "Time" (his ability to age) in order to form a pact with a Golem. He also has the incredible luck of being in a party with a pedophile and a Baby Eater.
- And Caim. Of course, in this regard he's just as lucky as the rest of the party, since Caim hates them all equally.
- The titular Little King(whose default name is Corobo) from Little King's Story. He can grow a Badass Beard despite his age in the hardest difficulty however.
- Caillou in Recettear.
- Emil from Nier. At least until the second half of the game...
- The Onion Knight in Dissidia: Final Fantasy, the best way to describe his personality is "know-it-all brat"
- Even ponies can qualify for this! Icarus from Equestria Chronicles is a very good example.
- Mac from Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends.
- Boomer of the Rowdyruff Boys, Evil Counterparts of The Powerpuff Girls. It really helps that he is the male counterpart of Bubbles.
- Tobey from WordGirl fits most of this trope... except for the relationship with an older girl (not that he doesn't WANT one with a certain superheroine...).
- Aang The Hero from Avatar: The Last Airbender who even falls head over heels with two years older Team Mom.
- Beast Boy from Teen Titans. Simultaneously The Bumblebee. So cute, he's huggable! Comes with optional cute animal-forms.
- Phineas from Phineas and Ferb.
- Jake from Taz-Mania.
- Russell in Up.
- Flapjack from The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack is the very definition of Cute Shotaro Boy for western animation. He was even mistaken for a girl in one episode. (then again, he is shown with long eyelashes in several epiodes)
- Ding-A-Ling Wolf from Hokey Wolf cartoons.
- Both Thomas and Percy from Thomas the Tank Engine.
- Bumblebee is a robot version of this in virtually all continuities save for the movie, but is particularly so in Transformers Animated, especially when he's turned into an adorable preteen when the 'bots get humanized.
- The face under Kenny's hoodie, despite his personality. Stan is also a Cute Shotaro Boy as much as or more so than the Face under Kenny's hoodie
- ...but Kenny and Stan have the same face. As do all the South Park children.
- Likewise Butters and Ike, or really most of the male children in the series.
- Huey and Riley Freeman from The Boondocks. Played for laughs in the comics.
- Henry in KaBlam!!, more so in earlier episodes.
- Same can go for Larry.
- Yakko of Animaniacs.
- Moreso Skippy Squirrel.
- Harvey of Sabrina: The Animated Series.
- Don't forget his best friend Pi.
- Cody from Total Drama Island, even though he's sixteen (he looks about twelve).
- One episode of the Justice League had a spell that changed Superman, Batman, Green Lantern and Wonder Woman into kids. Despite maintaining their powers, each of them have a more childish personality. Superman is much more naive and Green Lantern has a short attention span. Wonder Woman is the bossy big sister with (still) a crush on Batman, who changed the least out of the four, though more bratty and impatient.
- Wonder Woman: You gotta admit, it was sorta fun being a kid again, huh?
- Shifty Dingo from Blinky Bill.
- Zach from Adventures from the Book of Virtues.
- Robin in Young Justice, as the youngest member on the team (not counting Superboy) though the one with the most experience and a Badass Normal.
- Also Billy Batson when he's not Captain Marvel.
- Spike from My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is a dragon equivalent of this trope.
- Season 2 introduced a colt named Pipsqueak, who certainly fits this trope. His cute British accent helps, too.
- Timmy Turner of The Fairly Oddparents often wishes that he could do more things commonly associated with adults. In fact, he wishes to be an adult in the first episode. And despite his Jerkass tendencies, he's still very cute.
- Caillou is a preschool version of this.
- Chester from Beverly Hills Teens an Adorkable, Gadgeteer Genius who can build anything that can help everyone. it should be noted that he hangs out with guys and girls much older than him.
- T.J. Detweiler from Recess, the Badass Adorable leader of the main six.
- Leonard Helperman from Teacher's Pet, though as much as the crazy animation style will alow.

Questionable examples from the Anime/Manga section; if you think these fit, please explain in terms of the trope definition (which is not just "cute little boy"):
- Haré from Haré+Guu probably counts. He was mistaken for a girl once and even crossdressed (against his will) once.
- Miharu in Nabari no Ou who is very much aware of his own cuteness and is not above using it to his own advantage, or just to torment people. Shotazawa, later on.
- His Holiness Alessandro XVIII, 399th Pope of Rome, from Trinity Blood, is a Adorably Precocious Child constantly being scolded by his mean, aggressive big brother.
- What about Ion Fortuna? Sure he's much older, but he's young as Methuselah go, and his awkwardness around Esther smacks of first love.
- Takumi, youngest of the few boys in Mai-HiME, fulfills most of the requirements. He's gentle, domestic, needs caring for, affectionate to his older sister, whose friends also enjoy him being in a pseudo-Ho Yay relationship with Akira.
- Parodied with lolishota type Mitsukuni "Hani" Haninozuka in Ouran High School Host Club, who, despite being the oldest member, uses his over-the-top childish looks and behavior (plus a stuffed bunny he always carries around) to get the club's customers to fawn over him. Later, Renge coaches a decidedly less cutesy Mouthy Kid into a rascal type she thinks will appeal to big sisters.
- The title character from Mamoru-kun ni Megami no Shukufuku wo! has a slightly older, slightly taller girl demand that he go out with her due to his falling into this trope. thank god this was in the first episode...
- In a similar vein, Kanokon has its girls falling over this character type. His name (Kouta) even rhymes with shota.
- Simon, Rossiu or Gimmy in Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann are possible examples (and the first two both became Bishōnen after the Time Skip), but according to the last Parallel Works video when freaking Lordgenome of all people was a kid he was one of them. Hell, he practically looked like a somewhat masculine version of his daughter Nia.
- Train from Black Cat temporarily reverts back to being a child (due to being shot with a Lucifer bullet). He is so incredibly Moe Moe, it's not even funny◊. This is milked for what it's worth in the anime, where it's complete with his original clothes falling off of him because they're suddenly too big for him, he blinks innocently several times, and says "eh?" in a very cute, high voice. Later, he's even shown to be forced to wear Eve's dress temporarily, since no one else had clothes that were his size. It's an interesting thought as to what Creed would've done if he had seen Train like that...

Hare is very responsible in that he often has to take responsibility for his Young Drinking Mom. He also plays the straight man in the comedy.

Yet another article that desperately needs to be renamed as something in English.
10:03:28 PM Nov 29th 2010
Not everything can be accurately renamed in English. There are concepts that just don't have a convenient one-word equivalent in English. That said, even if it did, why change it? The wiki's already annoyingly edit-happy with its page titles.
06:48:10 PM Jun 27th 2011
Cute Kid doesn't really have the same connotation. This trope is basically the male version of Token Loli. "Cute Little Girl" wouldn't work for that one either.

I am kind of disappointed with the new name. I mean, even though I know where it comes from, I get that it might have been wise to change the name, but using the unisex word "child" could confuse tropers and trope readers. Heck, even I'm confused. Wasn't this a boys only trope?
06:27:28 AM Jun 9th 2010
