Basic Trope: A character created to appeal to kids.
- Straight: In an attempt to appeal to kids, the creators of Generic Action Show add 9-year-old Alex to the mostly young adult cast.
- Exaggerated: The creators add half a dozen child characters to make the show more appealing to kids.
- Downplayed: Alex is primarily meant to attract kids to the show, but he also has plenty of traits intended to appeal to older viewers.
- Justified: ???
- Inverted: Alex is an adult character in Generic Kids' Show who was added to appeal to older demographics.
- Subverted: And then Alex gets killed off halfway in the story and the show shifts to a more serious tone.
- Double Subverted: ...only to get resurrected after several episodes and Alex remains as a cheerful Kid Hero like before.
