Teenage Tropes

Go To

Tropes about teenagers, adolescents, and youth, as well those in middle/high school and puberty, typically aged 13-19. Set apart by having left elementary school and being filled with hormones but not yet legal adults, they tend to lead adventurous and dramatic lives—at least in fiction.

Some of these can apply to children or adults but because they are named for those who are growing up they go here. If the title has the word "child" or "kid" in it then it only counts if it means non-adult (under 18). Comes after or blends with Youngsters and precedes Adult Tropes and/or Early Adulthood Index, although may blend in with the latter depending on the age and the character archetype.
