The Artful Dodger is like the Street Urchin, except that instead of being The Woobie that makes you want to take him up in your arms and care for him, he seems perfectly happy to take care of himself. Oh, he'd let you take him home, just don't expect him (or any of your valuable possessions) to be there next morning. In Real Life, a child who lives on the streets experiences horrors most of us could not even imagine, but in some fictional works, a child on the street lives a happy-go-lucky life and practically thrives (probably no longer terrified by such horrors).
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_3'); })He is exceptionally Street Smart, and can take care of himself better than most adults, being a bit more experienced in the field. He is usually a criminal. Not the poor, innocent child who hates having to steal out of desperation, but the whip-smart trickster. The adult protagonist may feel sorry for him and try to help him at first, but it will usually turn out that the adult actually needs his help. He often has some sort of unique knowledge or skill that the protagonist needs in some circumstance, such as how to access any part of the city through the sewer system.
He'll probably start out as a pest, but he'll turn out to be one of the Hero's most powerful and stalwart allies when the chips are down. He's characterized by sarcasm, cynicism, skepticism, incredible resourcefulness, and a charming fascination with violence, but in the end he's likely to succumb to the temptation of family life with the Hero and his Girl, even if his life on the street was clearly more Awesome. He's also fairly likely to die by Taking the Bullet for the Hero. In this case, the Hero will retroactively adopt the Kid, for instance by putting his own surname on the Kid's tombstone. Can grow up to become a Satisfied Street Rat, but the Dodger is more of a trickster where archetypally the Street Rat is more of a cutthroat.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_2'); })If the Artful Dodger is working for someone (as the original did), expect his boss to be some variety of The Fagin.
Usually male, but there are a few exceptions.
Compare with Lovable Rogue or Baker Street Regular.

Lyra of His Dark Materials is a rare female example. Well, she just acts like this despite having a good place to stay. Later on, when she really ends up on the street in a strange city, she finds it's not so fun.

Sylvester in Twig becomes this after he deserts the Academy of Evil. He doesn't lack for money or comforts, since he knows how to get them, and if he needs something he steals it. This stands in stark contrast to other homeless children in the setting who are closer to the Street Urchin archetype, lacking Sy's background as a Child Soldier with access to a Psycho Serum which gives him an edge.

Skif from Take a Thief is an adept street rat and thief who, at first, lifts food from the rich to feed himself, and later joins up with The Fagin's gang to live in decent comfort while pilfering valuable items. Most of his original gangmates also get out decently, however. This phase of his life comes to an end when his home is burned down by an arsonist, catapulting him into adulthood early and driving him to become a true master thief, and later leading him to the Heralds.

Young Locke Lamora of the Gentleman Bastard series was a classic Artful Dodger despite actually living under realistically miserable conditions for a street urchin. (Seriously, The Thiefmaker's hill is awful.) He's just that happy to take others' stuff.

Gavroche in Les Misérables - but Hugo investigates the source of Gavroche's lifestyle, and its probable end. Gavroche springs from parents (the Thenardiers) who are cutthroat and depraved, but also incredibly resourceful. Hugo describes Gavroche's quick mind and high spirits, but says that though he's slipped through the cracks all his life, he's on the cusp of outgrowing the life he lives. Then, he might ally with the noble cause of the Friends of the ABC (who include a few working-class idealists in their ranks), or else, Hugo compares at least one vicious and brutal thug in M. Thenardier's gang to a grown up Gavroche. As it turns out, he dies at the barricade before he can grow up for either good or ill.

Raggamuffin Amelie from Semi-Auto Semla is a bit of a Deconstruction of this trope. While she's a hyperactive, cheery ball of theft and zany schemes, it's repeatedly shown that these antics of her do her more harm than good. Furthemore, it's implied that her happy nature is just a coping mechanism for the horrors she's seen on the streets.

Mission Vao from Knights of the Old Republic. She's very cheerful, good at picking locks and pockets, looks out for her Wookiee buddy (she's the brains, he's the brawn), an excellent scout (high stealth), and higher on the Karma Meter than the party's Jedi. And grew up in one of the filthiest Wretched Hives in the galaxy despite being of an age, attractiveness level, species, and gender that would have normally railroaded her into slavery and / or prostitution.

Dickensian has the trope namer, portrayed as a sneakthief and pickpocket who also passes messages from Bill Sykes to Fagin (although he is so far shown as the only child working with them, so Fagin isn't exactly The Fagin yet.)

Davis Pickle in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! is a 10-year-old orphan boy who makes his living scavenging bits of useful technology from the wreckage of Dahl spaceships and installations on Elpis. He actually does pretty well for himself, being clever and nimble enough to outmaneuver other scav gangs, and has enough money to hire the player characters and other subcontractors.

Vanellope von Schweetz in Wreck-It Ralph lives in Diet Cola Mountain in Sugar Rush, and sleeps under candy wrappers. She finds the Hero's Duty medal and teases Ralph, which prompts him to make a deal to help her become a regular member of the Sugar Rush starting lineup in exchange for getting his medal back. When they get to the go-cart factory, King Candy has a "Stay Out" poster on the door, banning Vanellope. Due to her glitching and King Candy controlling the memory banks, she gets bullied by the other racers, telling Ralph that if she became a regular racer, they would treat her with more respect.

Gavroche of Les Misérables — this example is a great deal straighter than the one in the book. He also gets some of the best Greek Chorus lines, which The Movie only enhances — "This is the land that fought for liberty, now when we fight, we fight for bread! That is the thing about equality: Everyone's equal when they're dead."

In Pokémon XY, Serena's Pancham starts out as this. He loved to perform, and would steal props to use when performing in private. But he was embarrassed by his interest in performance to the point where he'd act out and ruin public performances if he drew too much attention to himself. When Serena wanted to take him in and tap his talent, he did not make it easy, though she eventually defeated and captured him in battle.

Doctor Who:
Nancy of the episode "The Empty Child" is a lesser example; although she used the clever tricks to survive which are trademark to this trope, she was anything but happy-go-lucky.
Adric, one of the Doctor's companions in the Classic Series, was originally intended to be an "Artful Dodger" character; Matthew Waterhouse even assumed he would have to put on a Cockney accent when auditioning for the role. However, subsequent scripts deviated from this, resulting in a character whom many fans came to regard as one of the most annoying companions in the series.

Briar of the Circle of Magic books by Tamora Pierce started out this way, he was even named Roach by the leader of his street gang. However this life is in no way romanticized, as by the start of the book he had experienced routine hunger, gang wars, physical abuse by police and other adults, had been arrested three times and was on his way to punishment labour (which it was implied he would not survive more than a couple of years) before Nico found him.

Albert on Little House on the Prairie was portrayed as this type of urchin, stealing or conning people to get by when he was first encountered living on the streets of Winoka. Though he found a home with the Ingalls' family and was portrayed as more or less straight-laced after that, Albert was not above using his street smarts to con people in subsequent episodes. For example, he gave a sob story in "Men Will Be Boys" to get food and shelter, pretended to be buying for a relative in "The Odyssey" only to take off with the goods and convinced Mrs. Oleson in "Author, Author" that his adoptive grandfather's memoirs contained racy material so that she would agree to sell the book in her store.

The title character of Disney's Aladdin (not so much in the original Arabian Nights). He seems to be more grown up, but since his age is never revealed, it can be assumed that he is just a teenager of about 17 or 18.

Boxey in Battlestar Galactica was going to become this, until the character was written out due to a lack of time for the planned development.

Rabble-Rouser (real name Reginald) in RPG World counts. He's actually Diane's little brother that was actually abandoned in South City as a baby because his father was a human and his mother was a monster. They used a magic spell to make Diane look more human because otherwise they wouldn't be allowed to keep her. The spell didn't work so well on Rabble-Rouser, so he was left to grow up on the streets.

Jan from The Silver Sword is a classic example, who ends up becoming a hero by the end of the book as he saves Edek from drowning.

Shift from BoxxyQuest: The Gathering Storm walks a blurry line between this and Satisfied Street Rat. He’s a bit older than you’d expect from the former, being in his late teens or early twenties, but he’s cheerful and not nearly as cutthroat as you’d expect from the latter. In either case, life in the streets suits him just fine, until he gets recruited into your party.

Phoebe Buffay in Friends may well have been an Artful Dodger in her teens. She had to live on the streets from the age of 14 and is unlikely to have been an instance of The Woobie judging by her character during the series. In one episode it's revealed that she once mugged a young Ross Geller.
