* ButtMonkey

to:

* ButtMonkeyButtMonkey: He consistently suffers all sorts of misfortunes, nothing ever goes right for him, he gets hurt a lot, is treated rather horribly by his mother, frequently picked on by Kevin and Judy, and often embarrassed in front of Judy. This is just scratching the surface, by the way.



* TheChewToy

to:

* TheChewToyTheChewToy: The viewers are clearly supposed to be amused by the immense amount of hell and misfortunes he's subjected to.



* TheDitz

* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Lucas is described by many other Youtubers, even those who don't like the show, as being a nice guy.


** Incidentally the original ending written for the film invoked this trope, with Fred realizing his friendship with Bertha was more important then his obsession with Judy, but the network didn't like that ending.

* PutOnABus: The nick franchise stopped using the character when they could no longer use Pixie Lott in the role, rather then just replacing her like they did Bertha. We never get a full explanation as to where she's gone though, just that she broke up with Fred.

Fred's only friend. Played by Music/JennetteMcCurdy Creator/JennetteMcCurdy in the first movie, DaniellaMonet Creator/DaniellaMonet in the sequels and TV show, and Lucas Cruikshank on youtube.

Added DiffLines:

* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Lucas is described by many other Youtubers, even those who don't like the show, as being a nice guy.


* DawsonCasting: ''Self-inflicted''--Lucas Cruikshank was 14 when he created 6-year-old Fred.
** Averted in {{the movie}}s with Fred, as Lucas was 16 when filiming took place and Fred was depicted as a 15 year old there. However, it's played straight with the ages of Music/JennetteMcCurdy (17), Jake Weary (19) and Music/PixieLott (18) during filming. Fred is the only person in the middle school he goes to that actually looks like he could reasonably be a middle schooler.
*** Possibly inverted with Wrestling/JohnCena as Fred's imaginary dad, unless he was around 18 when Fred was conceived (and that's only if Fred's dad is the same age as Cena, any younger [[UnfortunateImplications then...]])



* TheOtherDarrin: Daniella Monet took over the role from Jennette [=McCurdy=].
