What would be the contrasting trope title? You know, kids who think & act like adults. I can already think of a handful of examples, I just don't know the trope name.

So, a Man Child is an adult that acts like a kid, whilst One of the Kids refers to someone who acts childish because they spend a lot of time around kids. The page image for Man Child shows an adult in a classroom whereas the page image for One of the Kids shows... a Man Child. Surely these images should be swapped around? What do you think?

I don't know if I can add this. There is a 17 year old character from Kuroshitsuji named Soma. He'll be an adult in less than a year, but shows no signs of growing up. He leaves India to look for his nanny, is completely dependent on his butler for everything, throws tantrums, cries a LOT, & spends time trying to play games with a younger boy (ironically a very adult child who also happens to be his employer).

I'm still confused as to how this is different from Adult Child

This is about adults who act like children, Adult Child is about adults who spend a lot of time around children and act like children as a result.

Then we might need to prune some of the Adult Child potholes and fix them to point at Man Child instead. Case in point: Misato from Neon Genesis Evangelion.
