* How cruelly children treat those they deem inferior to them is a recurring theme in ''Anime/VividStrike''. The first scene of the season involves Fuka and Rinne getting bullied for being orphans, and Episode 3 shows that [[spoiler:this did not stop for Rinne after she was adopted. In fact, it appears to have been worse since she became an adopted child from a poor background who was now all alone in an elite school full of students eager to [[BreakTheCutie have fun with the outcast]]. Episode 4 explores the kind of bullying that Rinne Berlinetta underwent in school. It goes as far as her bullies beating her up and destroying her phone, [[NeverGotToSayGoodbye during the very day her adoptive grandfather died]], while her mother was trying to contact her. What follows is a ''massive'' NoHoldsBarredBeatdown against the bullies.]]

* ''FlameOfRecca'' is all over this trope. For most (if not all) of the characters with tragic pasts (such as Fuuko, Kaoru, Kurei, and many others), a good part of said past was being tormented by other kids, who take it to extreme heights for seemingly no reason other than the fun of being evil little bastards. One of the tormented kids ([[spoiler:Kaoru]]) was even driven to attempt suicide, and a few others considered it.

* Majin Buu of ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' had the mentality of a child without a conception of right or wrong, so he quite cheerfully obliterated anything that wasn't entertaining. After Mr. Satan befriended him, Buu slowly began to evolve a sense of morality.
** Taken even further when Buu's pure form is revealed: Kid Buu. This form is hinted to only have as much power as Super Buu, but lacks any of the restraint displayed by his other incarnations. He's a complete psychopath, as demonstrated when he ''[[EarthShatteringKaboom destroyed the planet he was standing on]]''.

* ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'': This is Rosa's justification for her treatment of Maria (or what she tells people anyway; in Maria's backstory we find out that [[spoiler: Rosa hates her a good deal for just existing]]). Her excuse is basically, "All the children make fun of her! Don't you see?! Beating her will obviously make her stop whining!"

* ''Manga/DeadmanWonderland'': It must be something that in a world of super-powered sadists some the cruelest characters are ''{{muggle}} bullies'' whose victims later became the twisted un-powered (or at least not till recently) playthings/enforcers of the prison. Examples include kitten killing, possible rape, and playing Othello on a kid's back ''with thumbtacks''. And this is ''before'' the devastating earthquake that plunged the land into chaos.

* ''Manga/KoeNoKatachi'' is all about the cruelty of children and the main focus is on a character who has been driven to suicidal edges by a mix of the treatment he receives from his fellow students and the memories of the way he constantly attacked and abused a deaf girl in his class when he was younger. The story focuses on his attempts to redeem himself with the girl and somehow makeup for his actions.
