* Mr. Cat from ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' possesses the intelligence of an adult, and acts like one too. He's far more mature than the other characters, who are also kids, and typically refuses to play children's games. In one episode, he was stated to have possibly "lost his inner child".

They have no interest in ever being a child. They eschew toys in favor of books and beginner scientific equipment. [[LittleProfessorDialog They immediately and eloquently denounce the logic of Santa Claus.]] They may insist that their parents read the classics to them as bedtime stories and thus scoff at the books meant for their age. [[GeniusBookClub Or they just read the classics -- or, better the encyclopedia -- to themselves purely for fun.]] They would rather discuss world events than...play (How childish!). They may even already have a distinct, philosophical worldview, never mind that they haven't lived long enough to see enough of the world to form such a view. And so on.

* The Literature/WhateleyUniverse has several examples. Ayla springs to mind as a self-acknowledged one, and Jobe is one who doesn't realize it. Ayla's reaction to realizing this is to try and bring his friends up to his level, so that they can at least understand why some things bug her so much. ("Why would I blow money on an expensive stereo system that's going to be outdated in three months' time, or on clothes that are going to be out of style in two weeks?")

* ''Anime/AceAttorney'' has the first introduction of Franziska von Karma, who, with perfect sentence structure, says she will be tutoring Edgeworth. At the time, she is about '''three'''.

* ZigZagged by Lisa Simpson of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', DependingOnTheWriter. She's a ChildProdigy who is usually far more mature than other children or even than [[ManChild most of the adults around her]], identifying with world-weary jazz musicians and quoting existential philosophers. Every once in a while, though, the audience will be reminded that she's still an eight-year-old girl with details like her constant yearning for a pony or her subscription to Non-Threatening Boys Magazine and precocious crushes on teen heartthrobs named Corey.

* Zig Zagged by Calvin of ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes''. He's incredibly intelligent, well-spoken, and has a very solid grasp of concepts and ideas that many real-world adults struggle with, but at same time, he frequently uses his enormous vocabulary and razor-sharp wit to express the kind of thoughts any regular six-year-old would have.

* The title character of the very short-lived and critically-blasted ''WesternAnimation/AllenGregory'' is an example gone awry, in that he was supposed to be extremely mature for his age, and promos made him seem like a tiny [[Series/{{Frasier}} Frasier Crane]]. In practice, though, he was the ''other'' kind of "mature," and came off as a smug, creepy, unlikable sociopath.
