I've noticed a slight error in the Legend of Korra entry. Tarrlok is the younger brother, not the elder.

JTHM on the cover? There's no word-of-god on his age, but he's generally assumed to be a homeless teenager.

It's the comment he's making. Cooties!

Seriously with adding Shadow on here?! *facepalm*

Would Elegabalus from horrible histories count?(a type b)

I was debating whether or not Skinn Noah from D.Gray-Man counts? I don't know, something about that utter obsession with eating sweets and the fact that he, twice in the anime alone, is shown eating a single spoonful of boiled egg, throwing a tantrum and then savagely attacking (possibly beating to death) the servant who brought it to him because it's not sweet, seems at once childish and psychotic.

This is probably not an example as written Umbridge might use the language of childhood in her sinisiter patronising, and there are other trappings of childhood but it is far from obvious that she has the mind of a child — rather she has the mind of a very nasty adult underneath. Moving to discussion: if there are other examples in Harry Potter we'll need details.

  • Harry Potter
    • Dolores Umbridge series dresses in pink, wears Elegant Gothic Lolita headbands, speaks in a little girl's voice and hangs pictures of cute kittens on the walls of her office.
    • Bellatrix Lestrange and several of the other Death Eaters may also count.

So Misa Amane acts like a teenager despite being "almost in her twenties".

That is to say, she's about nineteen. And acts like a teenager. How very childish.

Removed the picture of Chandler. Regardless of how he may fit the trope, it would be preferable to have an image from a work as opposed to one of an actual person.

(original picture poster here) He doesn't just fit the trope; he may be the Most Triumphant Example, and the Chris-Chan saga is such an internet phenomenom, such an epic rainbow of fail, it more or less is a work itself. Also, his Psychopathic Manchild nature does show through in his comics, so there's that.

Besides, pictures from works are still mostly the rule around here; an exception won't hurt. Toyman was up there for a good long time, I think Chris can stay here a while.

Well, there's other reasons why that picture should not be there.
