* Having been trained by Carnelian and the other Quartzes since he was five, Steven/Rhodonite in ''Fanfic/GiftOfADiamond'' has become a well-trained and condecorated Quartz officer who has succeeded at a number of daring and dangerous missions and has influenced Homeworld politics so much that he was able to convince all three Diamonds not to shatter gems and give second chances into his teens. He was even able to defeat Garnet and Pearl easily, two gems of with thousands of years of fighting experience. In-fact, he's ''this'' close to gaining MarySue status.

* Creator/WolfgangAmadeusMozart. If not the outright TropeCodifier, he's certainly the most famous example. He started playing piano at age 3, was composing by age 5, and wrote his first symphony at age 8. He was also known to have been challenged by famous musicians during his youth in improvisation contests, where the performer would compose on the spot and try to outperform his rival in this manner. He disposed of all of them. It's said that after they gave up, he would say, "any more?"

** Frieza himself can count as well. The overwhelming power by which he became the Galactic Emperor? His power which only needed Super Saiyans to even scratch him? He was born as that, and he didn't train for a single day in his life. Still he gave a personal CurbStompBattle to almost everyone (barring Goku and Trunks, the said Super Saiyans), before he made the fatal mistake of [[KickTheDog killing Krillin]]. Also counts as a Subversion, as if he DID focus on training like the other examples on this page, he would have been [[TropesAreNotBad near damn unstoppable]], with probably Super-Perfect Cell and even Buu (literal monsters), being either equal in power or weaker.

* Wendy from ''Manga/FairyTail'' might also count as she was ''Manga/FairyTail'', despite only being biologically 13, has been able to learn many of her offensive spells just by seeing Natsu use them once, learned several more, including a [[LimitBreak Secret Art unique to her brand of Dragon Slaying Magic]], in just three days with nothing but handwritten notes to go on, and mastered [[SuperMode Dragon Force]] in only a year's time whereas Natsu still hasn't despite having obtained it once.far earlier than her. [[spoiler:She even figured out how to copy an Enchantment spell [[GrandTheftMe that transfers one's consciousness to another body]] in the middle of a battle after only seeing it once ''while it was being used on her'']].

* OlderThanTheyThink: one of the first novels to feature a Child Prodigy was ''The Hampdenshire Wonder'' in 1911. The protagonist is not only a genius, but a truly [[SuperIntelligence superintelligent]] little kid who judges the whole human culture an "elementary, inchoate, disjunctive patchwork"... at age ''four and a half''. He's right, and TVTropes proves it.
