Often their family situation is problematic, although they may have a [[CoolBigSis big sister]] or [[BigBrotherMentor brother]] they respect and admire. Said sibling may not appear (letting the audience take that role) and the Adorably Precocious Child can attach to the closest adult who lets them -- this is especially common if they're also a MouthyKid. Sometimes this works in reverse, and the adult character may have to defend themself against [[{{Shotacon}} unwholesome]] [[{{Lolicon}} comments]] by other characters by insisting they're LikeBrotherAndSister, or, alternately, OlderThanTheyLook.

* Former TropeNamer Shotaro Kaneda from ''Anime/{{Gigantor}} / Tetsujin-28go'', or, as he's known in the United States, Jimmy Sparks, so embodies this trope that he's the trope namer for both this ''and'' {{Shotacon}}.

* Momiji Sohma in ''Manga/FruitsBasket'', who makes his other family members jealous because his cute appearance can manipulate girls. [[OlderThanTheyLook Older than he looks]].
** His cousin Hiro might also count, being an actual middle schooler (Momiji is a high-schooler who looks like a middle schooler) who is clearly much more responsible than his mother and gets extremely offended any time he thinks someone is treating him like a child.
** Momiji also grows up in the manga. Of course, ''Fruits Basket'' being a {{Shoujo}} series, he just becomes a {{Bishounen}}. He retains his personality, though.

* Sheldon Cooper in ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' was certainly a precocious child, skipping middle and high school practically altogether and going straight to university aged about twelve. From the recollections of his mother and others, ''adorable'' was, however, debateable and a matter of opinion. He would appear, in context, to have had a lot in common with Ruth Lawrence. (see ''Real Life'', below.)

* The titular character of ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' OWNS this trope. Acts as if he's preocupied with responsiblity, once had a crush on an older girl (well, she was only two grades ahead), and one of the most adorable kids on the show.

* Most of the male KND Operatives in ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' ironically do quite a few things things you'd expect adults to do (usually when non-villain adults aren't around to notice) and yet the show still maintains the fact they're kids, given the KND is a military organization consisting entirely of children (with some areas in science, politics, etc.) so that would in ways make sense. Oh, and the boy KND Operatives are really adorable, just ask their fangirls.

** And the female ones. Gretchen is probably the prime example, being a child prodigy, rather level headed, but having most of the same impulses and naivete as the rest of the group.

* 25th Baam from ''Webcomic/TowerOfGod'', a cute young boy with a talent to befriend people and who '''really''' wants his [[GirlInTheTower best friend back]]. He is very diligent, honest and compassionate, extraordinarily humble and talented. [[spoiler:[[DarkerAndEdgier Jyu]] [[TookALevelInBadass Viole]] [[AntiVillain Grace]] on the other handů]]

* ''WebVideo/TheAutobiographyOfJaneEyre'': Adele Rochester works all the time for her futile homework assignment (though she's fond of learning), knows all about art forms of the twentieth century, speaks French, uses Latin in her tweets, has ballet/fencing/opera lessons, plays puzzles competitively, frequents Advanced Marine Zoology courses, went to an Applied Physics boot camp and is a Scout girl. She's very responsible, knows what she wants, and Jane says she kind of tutors herself. As is typical for precocious children, her family situation is complicated, to put it mildly. She surely knows a lot, but sometimes she has troubles to contextualize it and can come off as a weird kid. She's very nice to Jane, who is concerned about her being lonely and neglected by her father.

This kid has barely started puberty, but acts as if always preoccupied with responsibility. He (or she) works hard at whatever he does and treats things seriously, but every once in a while he does indeed act like a kid (and hates the subsequent teasing). Usually not taken too seriously by anyone and hates being treated like a kid by adults, even if they secretly like the attention.

Often his family situation is problematic, although he may have a [[CoolBigSis big sister]] or [[BigBrotherMentor brother]] he respects and admires. Said sibling may not appear (letting the audience take that role) and the Adorably Precocious Child can attach to the closest adult who lets him -- this is especially common if he's also a MouthyKid.
