* 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.

* Caillou from ''VideoGame/RecettearAnItemShopsTale''. He's rather adamant that people don't treat him like a child, though... right before he demands you to sell him some candy.

** Both Vivi and Eiko from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX''.
to:
** Both ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'': *** The party's BlackMage, Vivi, appears about eight or ten years old [[spoiler: but is actually less than a year old.]] This turns out to be an EnforcedTrope: [[spoiler: Black Mages in the setting are actually a kind of {{golem}} with [[WeAreAsMayflies a very short lifespan]]. Vivi and Eiko from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX''.is a SuperPrototype who might live longer than the rest, but still isn't likely to make it out of childhood.]] *** Eiko, a WhiteMage who also wields powerful SummonMagic, is only six years old. {{Justified}} as she's the LastOfHerKind, so the party don't exactly have the option of choosing an older, more experienced summoner to accompany them.

* In the WheelOfTime, most Aes Sedai first use their power by their very early teens, and often have very selfish (and NightmareFuel) early Weaves that they cobbled together that have to be beaten out of them. One particularly resourceful Aes Sedai puts together how Compulsion works based on these fragments, some science, and being really lucky to have not blown herself up by accident.

* This is deconstructed in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' with the character Bran Stark. At seven years old he's the most talented skinchanger in the world, capable of taking over the consciousness of other humans while other skinchangers can only manage to control animals. However Bran lacks the emotional maturity to use his powers wisely or understand how they hurt others, particularly his mentally handicapped companion Hodor. Bran, having lost the use of his legs, [[GrandTheftMe likes to use Hodor's body as a substitute for his own]]. He considers on par with borrowing someone else's coat, while for Hodor it's an absolutely horrifying experience.
