* A grade-school aged male witch with psychokinetic powers appeared in the first season of ''Series/{{Charmed}}''. Once the Magic School was introduced, there would be several more. Wyatt would be an extreme example of this, having powers in utero.

* In ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' the current Franchise/GreenLantern is a child - not technically a mage, but the same effect.
** Explored on a similar vein in an episode of ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League Unlimited]]'', with a [[FountainOfYouth kiddified]] John Stewart unable to settle on what he wants until Wonder Woman yells at him.
** There's also an episode where Terry has to rescue a psychic little girl from an evil organization of telepaths who want to initiate her via kidnapping. While he saves her, he also gets her help since she's a pretty powerful kid.

* While many characters in ''Manga/FairyTail'' are mages, [[TheMedic Wendy]] [[BlowYouAway is an example]] of this trope.
%%** Regardless, we now have [[TechnicolorFire Romeo]] after the TimeSkip, who is 13.
* Labra from ''Franchise/{{Jewelpet}}'' is, like every Jewelpet, a mage, and stated to be extremely powerful several times. She is also a baby and NotAllowedToGrowUp.

to:

* WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Fanfics: Most young unicorns can perform a little telekinesis with their magic, so there are a lot of examples, or at least, {{implied}} ones.
** ''Fanfic/StoryShuffle'': Twilight Sparkle, at age 7, is one of these and also a ChildProdigy, performing magical feats thought impossible for someone so young. What did she do? She [[spoiler:made a golem]].



%% Harry Potter is Not An Example, because EVERYBODY in the story is magical, and due to the setting, many of the most important characters are children, so there's no one character who fits the archetype operating in an otherwise older group.

** ''{{Eberron}}'' has [[FanNickname the Loli-Pope]] Jaela Daran, the head of the Church of the Silver Flame and a eleven-year old girl. She's a 3rd-level cleric on her own merits... but when communing with the Silver Flame, she's one of the most powerful spellcasters in the setting.

** Ewan from Sacred Stones follows this trope and he starts as the weakest spellcaster in the game but [[MagikarpPower if you spend the effort to train him...]]

to:

** Lugh in ''Binding Blade'' is about thirteen, and his adult support partners express surprise or dismay that a child like him is on the battlefield until he points out he's not much younger than KidHero Roy. (Lugh's twin Raigh is also a magic user, but he avoids getting those comments thanks to his JerkassFacade while Lugh is kind and cheerful.)
** Nino in ''Blazing Sword'' is fourteen, but her appearance and personality strongly evoke this trope too--she's a kindhearted, cheerful, lonely girl who's starved of affection from her "mother" and treats the other members of her organization as elder brothers (except Jaffar, who's a potential love interest). She also has major MagikarpPower and is indicated to be a magic prodigy in her support conversations, which is why she was abducted and raised by a group of assassins.
** Ewan from Sacred Stones follows this trope is an apprentice, not even part of the full-fledged mage class, and he starts as the weakest spellcaster in the game but [[MagikarpPower if you spend the effort to train him...]]



** Ricken from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Awakening]]'' certainly evokes the trope. Although his age is never given, he is the youngest member of Chrom's Shepherds and is of marriageable age. This can be somewhat amusing as it is possible that [[spoiler: his child from the future will look older than him.]]

See also {{Tykebomb}}, which is not necessarily a magic user, and SquishyWizard, which a Child Mage is almost guaranteed to be, or CuteBruiser, when the character actually ''does'' have physical prowess instead of magic, despite their size, and GooGooGodlike, for a character even younger (specifically, they are infants) and more precocious than the Child Mage. Compare TeenGenius for the sci-fi equivalent, and MagicalGirl for cute little girls embodying this trope.
