Added DiffLines:

* The ''Franchise/PhoenixWright'' character Pearl- despite being eight- speaks in a formal, verbose manner, and rarely takes anything lightly. This comes of spending her whole life in the archaic Fey compound, isolated from everyone but her (much older) family members[[spoiler:-one of whom was deliberately grooming Pearl to be the next Fey leader]]. Still, she has a child's changeable emotions, naivete, and tendency to {{Squee}}.

* Pierre from ''HarvestMoon'' would be an almost archetypal example, between his cute, childish appearance, and his mature, sophisticated behavior... Except for that fact that no-one ever fails to take him seriously, even though he looks younger than every other character that's ''not'' explicitly a small child. Making this weirder, he's also an {{Expy}} for an especially grotesque {{Gonk}}.

Added DiffLines:

* Syaoran Li from ''Manga/CardCaptorSakura'', the 10[=/=]11-year-old rival-turned-love-interest who tries so hard to be serious and no-nonsense and mature (and for the most part does passably, keeping pace with Sakura in the capturing of Clow Cards in the earlier seasons and even living on his own in the manga continuity), but is still too small and cute for this to be truly effective, especially since he breaks out in [[LuminescentBlush a bright blush]] the second he's complimented or shown affection.

* [[spoiler:Ebisu]]'s reincarnation in ''Manga/{{Noragami}}'' is this to a tee, having a strong understanding of Japan's economy and be empathetic to the needs of humanity while still being incredibly innocent and naive. Being a God of Fortune and have his Shinkis at his disposal, this shouldn't be hard for him.

* Sui Takishima, from SpecialA. Seeing as his big brother is basically perfect, it takes some persuasion by Hikari before Sui decides to actually do something. Once he ''does'', however, he's almost as stuck up as Kei.

* In an early comic strip from ''ComicStrip/TheBoondocks'', Huey Freeman, a little black boy who is also a radical leftist activist, encounters a little old white lady. The old woman calls him adorable, but Huey is offended by this remark, and tries to rant about how he's not cute. But she ignores all of his points. (Also see the example in the Western Animation folder.)

Added DiffLines:

* In the first episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'', Huey Freeman attends a garden party full of rich white guests. Huey tries to talk about his political conspiracy theories, hoping that it will offend their conservative sensibilities. But instead he gets praised for being such an intelligent and articulate child, which annoys him to no end.

* ''BlackButler'': Ciel Phantomhive is a more dark take on the trope. The reason he acts serious and mature is the trauma he endured through losing his parents, and being kidnapped and tortured by cultists. He's now a driven, if jaded, Earl and owner of his own toy and candy company while he searches for the culprits in said torture.
