** In ''Schulz and Peanuts'', David Michaelis recounts that when one of Charles Schulz's mistresses said "I do not want to be the woman who ruined the innocence of the ''Peanuts'' characters", Schulz replied "You're so naive to think they're innocent. Children are not innocent at all. Children are cruel."

* In the ''{{lonelygirl15}}'' episode "Poor Pluto", it is revealed that Bree was bullied by the other kids at school because she liked to ask questions about stars. However, in the following episode, "I Want to Take Bree to a Party", Daniel claims that [[strike:it was just teasing and that Bree takes things really seriously]] they were a bunch of mindless jerks who didn't give a crap about her feelings. Seriously, spreading rumors about her having an affair with her teacher?

** [[CerealViceReward Kids in cereal commercials]] are especially cruel to mascots, with the most notorious examples being Lucky and the Trix Rabbit, who will never get to keep or have their respective cereals thanks to them.

** [[CerealViceReward Kids in cereal commercials]] are especially cruel to mascots, with the most notorious examples being Lucky and the Trix Rabbit, who will never get to keep or have their respective cereals thanks to them. The kids in the Coco-Puff commercials did the opposite, tempting Sonny with the cereal until he lost his self control and went "coco for Coco Puffs".

* ''AdventuresInOdyssey'': Liz Horton was a rather nice girl, but you wouldn't know this from her first appearances. In two episodes, the first she repeatedly teases a girl about how ugly her clothes are, (([[CardCarryingVillain even informing her that she was talking about her]])), and in the other episode she is so mean at times, you just want to reach through the speakers and punch the ever living tar out of her.

* DonaldGlover discusses this in one of his stand-up routines, describing children as "tiny Hitlers". He says that walked by two kids fighting over a basketball, and the fight ended with one of them saying, "And that's why your mom's in a fucking wheelchair!". Donald was so shocked he dropped the food he was carrying, and wonders how someone can say that without exploding.

* Many 90's kid-aimed commercials glorified this trope, with kids joyfully behaving in ways that even most real-life kids would find repulsive.

* In the ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' Tenth Anniversary Collection, Watterson muses a bit on the character of Moe, who was written as a bully from a child's perspective; which is to say that being a jerk is Moe's only purpose.
** Moe is, in fact, the only recurring character in the entire strip not intended to be treated with any sympathy whatsoever.

* The way Charlie Brown is treated in ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'', most of the kids could count for this (except Linus and Marcie most of the time).
** Lampshaded especially hard in [[http://www.gocomics.com/peanuts/1958/02/23 this strip]].

* Tedd of ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' has been made fun of since he was small for being androgynous; his AU counterpart went nuts from the strain. Justin has been teased since early high school for being gay. Susan has always been considered a weird feminist, but she got really reamed for a few days after showing up at school in the boys' uniform.

* In ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'', it seems that prior to Antimony's arrival, the entire Queslett North class made a point of ostracizing Kat Donlan, simply because she got good grades and had teachers for parents.
** Part of this newfound respect for Kat may be simple fear of Annie. Its shown that despite the class having respect for her, they're kind of freaked out by her EmotionlessGirl status at the same time. Ironically, this makes Kat the sociable one and Annie the quiet one, as the class tend to ask Kat to pass messages along to Annie. Kat, naturally, calls them on this.

* Rigel from ''{{Webcomic/DNA}}'' bullies the other X's younger than him very cruelly. In Segment: Tooth, Rigel mocks Orion's SpeechImpediment and throws him into mud puddle and tells him to eat the mud, and then begins drowning Orion in the mud when Orion insults him, which shocks even Leon, who was helping Rigel with his bullying. In Segment: Mud, the first thing he does upon meeting Lukas is boss him around for breaking the rules and then ruins Lukas's drawing, making him cry. but this time it turns out he was BullyingADragon.
