* The main character of ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' is incredibly proficient with magic for being only ten years old. He also is a partial subversion, as he becomes skilled with physical combat as well, but this is backed up with magic too.
** The BigBad is a subversion, as when he's first introduced he's apparently the youngest member of his team, and the most powerful magic user. Turns out that he's probably either an ArtificialHuman or OlderThanHeLooks.
*** [[spoiler:Both of which have been confirmed.]]

* ''[[YoungWizards The Young Wizard Series]]'' by Diane Duane states this trope a good number of times in many books. Child wizards are naturally stronger because of their imagination and removal from a serious life. Older wizards balance this out with their knowledge and experience.

* In the SwordOfTruth, most of the wizards at the Palace of the Prophets are ReallySevenHundredYearsOld because the palace was designed as a spell-form. Richard, and Zedd (despite him being one of the oldest characters in the series otherwise), are as children to them.

** Krile is introduced this way in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV''. When she's still an NPC, she's shown to fight with spells, and she has the second-highest raw magic stat. She's also built as a mage in ''VideoGame/TheatrhythmFinalFantasy''. [[spoiler:However, if you made Galuf your tank, she will become a tank herself once she inherits his abilities and joins the party.]]

* ''TheMalazanBookOfTheFallen'' has a few examples, most of them being appropriately horrifying. Sin is one example.

* Alvin from ''TheWitcher'' has an inherent gift that makes him the most powerful mage known. Unfortunately it's so powerful it's a hazard to himself and others, and he needs help keeping it under control. In the books, Ciri had a similar role, but she managed to seal it and swear off magic when [[GrowingUpSucks she grew up]].
* ''RuneScape'' has Kennith. He's first met as a child in a quest. The next quest in the series, he's a young adult, and together with two other characters and the player he forms a party of four. The player's age is discussable, but Kennith most probably is the youngest member of said party. And he can cast even the high-level spells without any effort or even material components usually needed for casting.
