Are Good Parents and Nice Guy really examples? Being nice doesn't mean you're mature. One can be a mature Jerkass or a nice but childish person.

Okay, we can remove Nice Guy. I do think Good Parents is an example because being mature is a key aspect of being a good parent.

My argument also applies to Lovable Alpha Bitch (not loveable, but lovable).

@Ms CC 93 You did say any form of maturity in the laconic.

This is maturity tropes, not immaturity tropes. Put those examples there.

Token Adult, and if anyone proceeds to say it's not an example, the One Of The Kids trope is for the adults who not only hang with children, but act like the children as well.

Took the liberty of adding the tropes that were suggested and approved. On that note...

Suggested tropes leaning toward immaturity (since sponsor says this index is strictly for maturity):

My own suggestions for addition:

And since personally I think this index works better for all forms of maturity, suggested immaturity tropes:

Age Appropriate Angst, Emotional Maturity Is Physical Maturity and Fog Of Ages I think might have a spot here, but can't place them in either category (same for the "Than They Look" tropes).

Aug 10th 2017 at 11:19:08 AM's been weeks since I've come here. I suggest adding Its All My Fault when it comes to certain situations when a character decides to grow up & take responsibility for their actions.
