Berrenta Remakes on the way from Texas Relationship Status: Can't buy me love
Remakes on the way

Recently, Keet underwent TRS due to similarities with Genki Girl. It was decided to use the definition "cute perky energetic little brother type character which almost always get feminine qualities" for Keet; the tropes were not to be merged or gender-restricted.

With that in mind, this thread serves to check examples for misuse.

Should these examples be changed to Genki Guy or something else?

Tweek on South Park: Other Students:

  • Keet: Even though his hyperactivity comes from the fact that he's paranoid and scared, not happy. He can still have serious badass moments when he gets angry.

The Space Sphere on Characters.Portal:

  • Keet: He's very excited about space.

On WebAnimation.Harry101UK (added by me a long time ago):

  • Keet: The Wave Core is really excited about underwater tests. Understandably, he's friends with the Space Core.

[up]Tweek is not an example. He's not at all an audience surrogate, and South Park does not have a female audience.

The other two lack context. Just being excited about one thing isn't enough to be a Genki Guy, let alone a Keet. It's about mannerisms and a pervasive character trait. I guess I would delete them since it's a wick cleanup.

Edit: the second two might fit Fan Boy or Geek, since they're very excited about one, somewhat nerdy thing.

In Ben Tennyson's folder on Ben 10 Main Characters:

  • Keet: Again, Depending on the Writer, but he is typically despicted as skinnier than average, fairly hyperactive, and Kevin once referred to him as "kind of girly".

The real life subpage is terrible; the only example that might qualify is Courtland Mead, and even that's a violation of Weblinks Are Not Examples.

[up] Looking at the page, I'd like to just say "NRLEP as a characterization trope", but whatever works.

I changed the Space and Wave Cores to Fanboy, and posted here about making Keet No Real Life Examples, Please!.

The main page definition for Genki Guy still lists Keet as the childish male version of Genki Girl, even though we've established that they're now non-equivocal.

[up]Yeah, that should be re-worded, but I think the description should still mention Keet somehow.

I removed Keet from Truth in Television since a real person can't be a surrogate for a female audience. I believe the work doesn't have to have a solely female Target Audience to qualify, so Son Goku from Saiyuki (nominally shonen but clearly going for Multiple Demographic Appeal) still counts, right?

Keet was voted NRLEP, and its Real Life subpage is now cutlisted.
