Rodrick heffley

Rodrick Heffley is a major character in the Diary of the Wimpy Kid franchise, also being Greg’s and Manny's older brother. He has appeared in all of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series books. He is the tertiary antagonist of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and serves as the main antagonist of Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules.

Adaptational Nice Guy: In the film trilogy, the Heffleys are nicer and more sympathetic, essentially acting more like people you'd meet in life. Greg is less selfish and more willing to do nice things for his friends and family (and many of his Kick the Dog moments are either downplayed or removed), Frank tries to be a better dad, Rodrick becomes a Big Brother Mentor, and even Manny is noticeably less of an Annoying Younger Sibling and never reaches the Troubling Unchildlike Behavior territory. The only one this trope doesn't apply to is Susan since she was already the nicest of the family to begin with.


Ping-Pong Naïveté: It varies from story to story just how intelligent Manny is and how much he acts like a normal child as opposed to a Child Prodigy. In some books, like Cabin Fever, he's clever enough to cut power to every room in the house but his own, and in "The Long Haul" he quickly learns fluent Spanish. However, he's still young enough to believe in some pretty illogical ideas, like another kid being a vampire. There's also some books, particularly the early ones like Rodrick Rules, that suggest he's really intelligent, but pretends to be childishly dumb to get away with things. (Source: tvtropes.org)
