* In Carlo Collodi's ''Literature/TheAdventuresOfPinocchio'', Pinocchio is a little hellion who runs around getting into all sorts of trouble before [[CharacterDevelopment he learns how to behave himself and]] BecomeARealBoy. Contrast with his depiction as a well-meaning but naive and easily-led CheerfulChild in Walt Disney's ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}''...

** Possibly the worst example is in "{{It}}", where the main bully is sadistic, and has sexually harassed and threatened his classmates. He even goes as far as to molest Beverly and attempt to carve his name into Ben's stomach.

** Lyra herself, though, had plenty of expose to kids being cruel before the start of the book, not as a victim, but as a leader. The beginning of ''TheGoldenCompass'' details some of the things children do in Oxford. It gave a simplified version of the systems of often very short alliances, as well as rivalries, and explained that kids from different colleges would attack each other, or gang up on kids from the town or the bricklayers' children. They have fist fights and throw stuff at each other, up to and including bricks, shove the bricklayers' kids viciously in the mud (that description was rather detailed), and tried to sink the a Gyptian boat. Lyra and the rest of the kids, of course, viewed it as a game, and the violence was mutual. It still sounded very vicious and far from innocent.

** ''Discworld/{{Hogfather}} was largely built on this trope. A recurring line is that there's nothing nicer than the laughter of children at play, providing you're far enough away that you can't hear what they're laughing ''about''.

* Happens a lot in ''Literature/{{Pact}}'', including several [[MagicalSociety practitioner]] families sending their children as ChildSoldiers against their enemies, since kids don't ask as many questions. Blake Thorburn even invokes the trope when he explains that he doesn't blame the children that have tried to attack him-he thinks of them as too young to make good decisions on the matter. Instead, he blames the adults that send them after him.

* Louis in the Literature/CharlieParkerSeries is a StraightGay hardened assassin who strikes fear into the heart of all who cross him and takes no shit from anyone. His backstory shows him as the victims of playground bullies, kids calling him "fag" and refusing to include him for no discernible reason besides pure dickishness.
