Top 10 TV Tropes that Describe Dib from Invader Zim
The Top Ten
No one ever believes his theories or assertions. Even when the evidence is staring them right in the face. And we, the audience, know he is telling the truth about all of it. The trope is named for the mythical seer Cassandra, who was cursed by the god Apollo to give prophecies which were always true but never believed.
Iron Butt Monkey, that is. Considering all the mental and physical trauma the writers love to put him through. He's almost always the butt of every joke (quite literally in Battle of the Planets).
In most situations, he'll be ranting about Zim or some other blatantly obvious abnormality that everyone else just accepts as "normal." In other situations, he'll be ranting about how crazy/stupid everyone else is for making a big deal out of nothing.
Trope definition: "Quests for the truth, uncovering mysteries, lies, deception and gaining knowledge about themselves and the universe." Being a paranormal investigator and all, he pretty much sums up this trope.
Everyone looks down on him and thinks he's a total nutcase. Even his own father, poor kid. He's also the No Respect Guy.
He really does care about saving the Earth (most of the time). But he is rather sadistic when dealing with Zim (as he should be) and he can be a jerk towards his sister and his fellow classmates (but who can blame him? ).
"Am I the only one who sees the alien sitting in class? "
Both he and Zim fall under this trope, big time. They're both mocked by their respective societies, both outcasts, both starved for attention and respect, etc. etc.
