Adult Tropes

Go To

An index consisting of tropes specifically related to adults/grown-ups. Adulthood is the stage preceding seniority and following adolescence, at which point people are leaving college and the nest as they start settling in their own homes, paying their own bills, and attaining full-time employment.

Contrast Youngsters and Teenage Tropes. Compare Maturity Tropes and Aging Tropes. Will eventually follow into Elders.

See also Occupation Tropes and The Parent Trope, both of which mostly apply to adults (though not always).

For the more explicit meaning of "adult", see Sex Tropes. Maturity Tropes covers the behavioral definition of "adult".
