* One episode of ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' has a murder suspect who licked lead-based paint off his toy cars as a child; the ensuing brain damage caused him to grow into a PsychopathicManChild with a HairTriggerTemper. The toy company was sued and forced to pay his medical bills.

* Brain damage in childhood (generally caused by traumatic brain injury or stroke) can have widely varying effects. Children are significantly more able to recover from brain damage and return to a close-to-normal level of ability than adults are since their brains are more "plastic", developing alternate pathways and repurposing other areas of the brain much more easily to fix the damaged capacity. However, since a child's brain is under heavy development, brain damage during this period can disrupt their development and result in serious developmental problems for the child. Brain damage is no laughing matter in any case (even when it [[GettingSmiliesPaintedOnYourSoul Paints Smilies On Your Soul]].
** Since the prefrontal cortex is so critical to our higher, medium, and even basic level mental processes, damage to the prefrontal cortex causes dysfunction in social, emotional, and decision making behavior. In children, the mental repercussion can be a lot more severe, and a condition known as "[[TheSociopath acquired sociopathy]]" can arise from it, with the hallmarks of [[LackOfEmpathy callousness]], impulsivity, and [[ItsAllAboutMe extreme self-centered behaviour]] found in the usual [[TheSociopath sociopath]]. The severity of this condition also increases in children who get the brain damage at a younger age.

* In ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', when Goku was a baby he was just as violent as all Saiyans are, until he accidentally hit his head and became the kind-hearted hero everyone knows and loves. It was even lampshaded by his evil older brother Raditz, who point-blank asks Goku if he ''did'' hit himself in the head as a child and Goku not only confirms it, but even adds "I still have the scars, you know". The BigBad of ''Anime/DragonBallZTheTreeOfMight'', Turles, represents what Goku would have been like without his childhood brain injury. The result is an IdenticalStranger who has Goku's love of food and fighting but none of his empathy.

* In ''[[WebVideo/DragonballAbridged Dragonball Z Abridged]]'', like his canon counterpart, Goku fell on a rock head-first when he was still a child. And he's noticeably more ditzy and absent-minded than his canonical self.
