** Kuina's death. In a world with fantastic powers and ancient weapons, she just...fell down the stairs. Death can come at any time, in any situation, even to a child.

* ''WesternAnimation/GakuenBabysitters'' plays the terrifying idea of lost children fully straight. Whenever one of the daycare children goes off on their own, the fear in Ryuuichi eyes is completely visible as he fears for their safety and considers the possibility of them being taken away by a stranger.

** Hayato is an elementary school student with the misfortune of [[spoiler:being the son of the man Kira chose for his new identity.]] If it's not bad enough for a child to be living in the same town as the serial killer who murdered his father and WouldHurtAChild, [[spoiler:the killer ''lives in his house''.]] The kid isn't even safe in his own home. The scene where [[spoiler:they take a bath]] together is terrifying, because he isn't just alone with a serial killer, [[spoiler:Kira didn't even break in. As long as he's disguised as his father, he has the ''social and legal right to be with him at all times'' (except at school)]]. And if he shows any sign of being afraid, Kira will kill him, because [[spoiler:he will take it as a sign that he knows that he's not his father, and therefore knows too much.]]

* The ending to ''Manga/SatouKashiNoDanganWaUchinukenai'' provides an example of this. Mokuzu [[spoiler:is murdered by her father. There were numerous signs that he was abusive but no one saved her. She had a permanent, painful limp due to a hip injury she received as a baby and had a ruptured ear drum which caused her to be partially deaf. Child services had been called on her father but she stood by them, and her mom left them. Even in her new town there were rumors he was abusive, some even wondering if he'd end up killing her one day, but still no police were involved.]] Mokuzu has absurd, outlandish behavior (such as saying she is a mermaid or randomly singing) but [[spoiler:no one saw it as related to abuse or a sign for help until it was too late]].

* ''Manga/MutekiKanbanMusume'': This series deserve a special mention because the protagonist, Miki, is a [[ManChild Woman Child]] and this is the first AdultFear she has had in all her life (she is 21): being fired from his job (she is TheSlacker) and thrown out to the street by his mother and replaced by TheReliableOne Kankuro, while TheRival mocks her.

** Some heroes have to deal with the possibility of leaving their children orphaned if they die in the line of duty, which is exactly what happened to Kouta when his parents were killed. For this reason, this is why [[spoiler: Nana Shimura, All Might's predecessor]], gave away their child for adoption to a civilian family to keep their child from heartbreak and danger.
** Izuku's mother crying and apologizing to her son for being quirkless. Being a quirkless person in this world is almost equal to being disabled. In Eastern countries (especially Japan or China), when a child is born disabled, the blame usually would fall on the mother. Later on, she saw her son willingly mutilating his own body for the sake of his dream on live television and she had to cope with Izuku being targeted by a villain in a public area when he was out with his friends.

** ''PokemonSpecial'' and ''Manga/PhantomThiefPokemon7'' in particular prey on the "What if your young child is kidnapped and they can't be found?" fear.

** There's also the ''massive'' amounts of abuse in general, and ''specially'' child abuse/neglection, both physical and psychological. Most of the characters are able to escape or overcome it by the end of the series, but it's still horrifying, especially considering how well most of it is covered up. And it's made even worse when [[spoiler:the biggest of the abusers... turns out to have been [[TroubledAbuser one of the most abused victims]]. [[EvilIsPetty For a really selfish and petty reason, too]].]]

** The Chapel children. They were all the result of a group of women being given, without their knowledge, drugs that altered the development their unborn children. Not only that, but the parents are unable to properly care for their children because ''they're all afraid of them''. [[spoiler:Worse, though the children take on adult roles in the town they run, it becomes evident that the kids still need the love and support of their parents.]]
