* Kenard in ''Series/TheWire''. What sets him apart is he truly is a sociopath. In one episode he douses a cat in lighter fuel in one scene and kills someone in another

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** Joffrey is TheCaligula.
** Arya is a sympathetic character and still fairly heroic, but also a cold-blooded killer.
** Robin Arryn has an unhealthy fondness for seeing people and objects thrown off a mountain.

* Simon on ''[[FlashForward2009 Flash Forward]]'' was bullied as a child growing up in Canada because of his accent and for being a TeenGenius. Until one day, when he filled his lunchbox with rocks and beat the crap out of the bullies with it.
* ''MidsomerMurders'' likes this one; at least three episodes have children as murderers.

* ''Series/TheTwilightZone1959'' episode "Literature/ItsAGoodLife" features the cruel, sadistic, and [[TheOmnipotent omnipotent]] Anthony Freemont, age six. The episode basically shows what would happen if all of the selfish whims of a child were able to be fulfilled due to the child happening to have been born with incredibly strong, [[{{Telekinesis}} telekinetic]] powers. Anyone who tries to defy him gets killed, or [[AFateWorseThanDeath worse]] sent to some place Anthony refers to as "the cornfield" where they're trapped for all eternity.

* The main character of ''PushingDaisies'' was picked on at BoardingSchool, because of his introversion and his tendency not to retaliate. And when he ''did'' retaliate, the bullies waited until he was alone and then beat him up.

* An episode of {{TheOffice}} had a gang of kids attack Pam and Andy, later when confronted and asked why they assaulted them and threw things at them the leader replies because Pam was fat and thought Andy was gay.
* This is basically the whole plot of seasons four and five on ''That's Just Me''. Elizabeth suffered so much emotional torment that she develops an eating disorder, is sick every day, and almost [[DrivenToSuicide kills herself by sticking her finger inside an electrical socket.]] She obviously doesn't, but her personalty [[UsedToBeASweetKid is permanently altered as a result.]] And this is back when the show was still rated PG.

* ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' had a recent example of a very young-looking thirteen-year-old [[spoiler: date-rapist who was pushing his victim to get an abortion; his secret lovechild half-brother who had a crush on the victim killed him when it seemed (and I could be remembering wrong) like he was going to take matters into his own hands]]. There's also the two fourteen-year-old [[spoiler: girls who almost succeed in pinning the murder of an eight-year-old on a retarded neighbor -- actually one girl was "normal" and the other was the psycho/sociopath who tortured the kid because it was funny and strangled him because he was gonna tell]].
