literature meme | 4 tropes [1/4] The Trickster

…a character who plays tricks or otherwise disobeys normal rules and conventional behavior. The Trickster openly questions and mocks authority, encourages impulse and enthusiasm, seeks out new ideas and experiences, destroys convention and complacency, and promotes chaos and unrest. At the same time, the trickster brings new knowledge and wisdom. Even when punished horribly for his effrontery, his indomitable spirit (or plain sheer foolishness) keeps him coming back for more.

Famous examples: Puck of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the Cheshire Cat of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the Cat in the Hat of The Cat in the Hat, Willy Wonka of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Fred and George Weasley and Peeves the Poltergeist of the Harry Potter series
