Zak Saturday, Ben Tennyson and Hiccup Haddock
Adolescent boys with prominent eyebrows and cryptid/ monster/ alien sidekicks.
We had a lot of debate over just how old these three characters are supposed to be in their various television appearances. My sons generally argued for younger whenever there was a question, because it is perfectly plausible for them that a 10 year old boy should work as an equal with his parents in a dangerous situation... or save the universe. I voted for at least 12 years old... (Ben is supposed to be 16 in the latest show, isn't he?)
