Adult Child has been renamed to One of the Kids. In order for this to be an example of the trope, the character's childishness has to be from or demonstrated by interacting with children. This example can be added back with context relevant to the trope if it fits.

Yup. There were already several telling bits of dialogue in the series before it was stated outright, such as: "manoeuvre", "daft", "you lot", "scarper", "arse" (several times), "torch", "centre", "mum" (twice), and "bum".

Scarlet as a 'Karma Houdini'

  • Scarlet directly causes the death of an unknown, but presumably very large, number of people through her inattentive actions when she activates the above mentioned Kill Sat. Beyond Pip calmly stating "I'll kill her", this is never brought up again. You might think that letting the villain destroy a skyscraper and turn people on the ground into dust, solely because of her stupidity, might cause some sort of repercussions. Presumably the reason she's never called on this is because she's cute.
    • It could be, but this troper would bet it on the fact that she's essentially socially and developmentally retarded, and it's not like the protagonists are going to turn on her for something she didn't mean to do.
    • A number of the more dangerous situations that the protagonists find themselves in can be traced back to Scarlet in one way or another, really. She created the ray gun that provided the technological basis for the Kill Sat, her connection to Quinten indirectly leads to a potential link between Oz and the aforementioned Kill Sat through Kat's kidnapping, and her (and her sisters') latest lawnmower design seems to have spurred on what seems to be no less than an imminent planetary war.
      • Those same dangerous situations can be traced back to |anyone| if you want to, though. Take Art, for example: if he hadn't bought the replica ray gun in the first place, Scarlet wouldn't have tried to repair it; he had numerous opportunities to kick Scarlet out of the house when she first arrived and never took them (didn't try hard enough to over-ride his housemates when they said she could stay; didn't give her away to the eBay guy who bought her); he insists on activating the devices that Scarlet builds even though he |knows| trouble will come of it (the Lawnmower, for example). And in terms of maliciousness: Scarlet does mean things like stealing cupcakes and not sharing her food, and she's not very good at realising what's dangerous and what's not, but when she |does| realise something's dangerous to others she always does the right thing (removed the black hole from the lawnmower after Art told her it was dangerous; didn't melt the giant bug from the inside because it might harm the children). Scarlet may have inadvertantly activated the Kill-Sat, but Art essentially tried to genocide the Denizens, and he did that knowing what he was doing and knowing that the Denizens weren't even going to fight back any more. Not to mention the person he and/or Pip caused the death of at college and that he knowingly covered up.

Restored. Did you move it here because you disagree with the trope fitting Scarlet? Did you think it's too full of natter? Weak arguments? When you move something to Discussion, you really need to say why you moved it.

Apologies - yeah, wanted to disagree but didn't want to start an argument on the main page.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
