So.. who do you think start the trend of typical Shonen main protagonist cliche?

Poseidon
Gotei

Looking back at anime/manga, main protagonist was not naive, dumb, impulsive, obsessed, happy go lucky, big eater, good heart and filled with justice. Yup this is the era of Fist of North Star, Kujaku Out and the likes of them, it was late 80's and early 90's but now every mainstream Shonen use that same blueprint

Who pioneer that cliche? I give my vote to Goku, kid Goku is somehow match the qualification

I'm sure there is a few, but it takes a star like DB to make it limelight.
