* While he normally isn't shown casting a lot of magic, Shouta from ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' is implied to be very skilled for his age. He's capable of casually blocking [[PhysicalGod Lucoa's]] attempts to find him via clairvoyance, and he took down an older mage with what is implied to be a high level sleep spell.

** Bran's little brother, Rickon, is in a similar, yet different, pickle. Bonding with a direwolf at the age of four... has problems attached. As in: (CanisMajor + Isolated Tot)([[CrapsackWorld Stress + Loss]]) = [[TheBerserker RAGE]]: lots and lots of rage on both sides. Many people get mauled/killed. Now, remember that wolves go through puberty after only a few months... Yeah: at about the age of five or six, Rickon is having to deal with Shaggydog's maturation, since they practically share each other's skulls 24/7, since nobody at Winterfell knows how to bring a warg and their BondCreature up together. In return, the developmentally maturer ''Shaggy'' is left more or less having [[RaisedByWolves to babysit Rickon from the inside]] to a great extent... thus, WildChild.

WildChild. The power dynamic between the two is about as messed-up and confused as the pair is.

* The Literature/{{Discworld}} series first used this trope with Esk in ''Equal Rites''. A much more extreme example occurs in ''Sourcery'' with Coin, who is not only a wizard, but the most powerful one since the mage wars thousands of years ago because Coin is a sourcerer, which effectively gives him an infinite amount of magical energy, unlike ordinary wizards who have to work with the background magic field. Being around Coin (or on the same world as him) makes all the wizards a lot more powerful as they can use the magic he constantly leaks into the world.
