* [[VideoGame/Fallout4 The Sole Survivor]], if played like an asshole, clearly doesn't like kids all that much (not like he/she likes anyone else more) and will frequently cut sentences short with an exasperated "kids" and might even say "I hate kids".

* "Hate" may be too strong a word for how {{Garfield}} feels about them, but he ''really'' doesn't like them, and he has good reason not to; he's had plenty of bad experiences with children. One very early strip had him stalked by four dark figures in an alley, who turned out to be little girls who covered him from head to toe in ribbons. Then there was a two-week series of strips where Jon's cousin came to visit, bringing her SpoiledBrat daughter and her infant son (leading to Garfield finding out the hard way what a diaper bag was). A [[BlackComedy far darker]] example of this was a little girl who bribed Garfield into taking him home with her, only to throw him to her [[FluffyTheTerrible huge dog "Muffin".]] Maybe the reason Garfield doesn't like kids is, quite simply, they don't like ''him''.

** Very implied in Moe Szyslak. Interestingly, he emphasizes the cruelty to children even more than any other adult on the show. Go figure. "See, this is why we should hate kids!". He doesn't seem to hate all kids, however, and has sometimes been seen interacting positively with children (especially Maggie). A very early episode also showed that he (and his patrons) are pretty fond of Bart.

** In response to a baby riot at a concert an organization composed entirely of Child Haters led by [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Lindsey Naegle]] band together and managed to eliminate every child-friendly thing in Springfield (for instance, restaurant attendees who bring children are forced to eat in their own room in the back, and toys were recycled into office furniture) and try to pass a law that would do even worse. It almost worked, but it was thwarted at the last moment when Bart, Lisa, and the other kids in Springfield hugged all the adults, infecting them with "kid germs." The adults collapsed with sickness and [[HoistByHisOwnPetard became unable able to vote, causing the campaign to fail.]] (This wasn't the first time Lindsey had tried something like this, but it ''was'' the most blatant example; she's at most an IneffectualSympatheticVillain.)

* Greg Proops jokes about being this in his standup. In real life, however, while Proops legitimately does not want kids of his own, he's reportedly completely chill with the children of his friends and family.
-->''"You children are like the lilies of the field: you toil not, neither do you spin! Come back when you're sixteen and can score drugs and we can ALL have a good time!"''
* Creator/DonaldGlover jokes about how children are "tiny Hitlers" in his stand-up. He says that the only reason he wears condoms is so that he doesn't have children, and not because of the risk of AIDS. He even compares having children to AIDS:
-->''"Think about it, they're not that different. They're both expensive, you have them for the rest of your life, they're constant reminders of the mistakes you've made, and once you have them you can pretty much only date other people who have them. What's the difference?"''
:: He does point out, though, that AIDS beats out children because you can't go to prison for accidentally dropping AIDS.

* Therese from ''ComicStrip/ForBetterOrForWorse''. However her husband pressured her to have a kid anyway, but she didn't like being a mother and eventually divorced him.
* A 2014 ''ComicStrip/HeartOfTheCity'' story had Heart and Dean taking shelter from a snow storm at a doll hospital where the owner despises children because of an experience he had when he was a kid, his rambunctious older cousins played too rough with his action figures and broke them all and they also blinded him in one eye when they fired a missile from a G.I. Joe toy into his eye, he tried to fix his favorite knight figurine but he grew frustrated and threw it in the river. He eventually has a change of heart after Dean shows him that he takes care of his action figures and gives him one as a good luck charm because it gave him luck in the past.

* George Wilson harbors venomous feelings toward neighbor Dennis in ''ComicStrip/{{Dennis The Menace| US}}'', an antipathy that, as Blog/TheComicsCurmudgeon has pointed out, hasn't at all decreased with Dennis' MenaceDecay. Since Dennis is his main contact with childkind, it's not hard to generalize.
