** Strong Bad was abusive to his little brother Strong Sad, going as far as drilling a hole in his stomach for a belly button. He and Strong Mad still pummel Strong Bad "every hour on the hour".
** One ''WebAnimation/StrongBadEmail'' has Strong Bad introducing Edga Jr., a filter for long emails. The splash screen has an angry kid with the caption "[[FelonyMisdemeanor Indent and Die]]!"

* 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. 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.
