* In ''Anime/MyNeighborTotoro'', the eponymous Totoro (a benevolent forest guardian) only appears to children. (The same applies to the cat-bus.) Adults might experience a rush of wind, but will ''never'' actually see Totoro, even if they're benevolent and open-minded like Kusakabi-sensei. Mei is the first one to see Totoro. Her older sister, Satsuki, is initially skeptical, but Totoro appears to her as well.

* On ''WesternAnimation/PeterRabbit'', whenever one of the show's predator characters goes after Peter Rabbit's [[BunniesForCuteness cute little sister]] Cottontail, wanting to eat her, she generally doesn't get it and treats it as a fun game. She thinks it's great fun when an owl swoops her up and takes her for a flight and usually the predators have to act very overtly mean for her to get scared, and even then it doesn't last long, assuming she even recognizes it for what it is. When Mr. Tod the fox places her in his cookpot with Shrew, she spends most of her time in it giggling and when he tosses in vegetables for flavoring, she eats some of the carrot slices.

*Played with in ''Lost,Found'', with Ryuuko and Nui, who have very little understanding as to why they were being experimented on and can only speculate, along with knowing the consequences. While they do have some understanding of how wrong their treatment was, they could do very little to affect it.
**In a later chapter, Nui, when telling of her (and Ryuuko's) experiences at the "orphanage", she describes a vivisection before asking what it was, however, she seems to have a clue as to what "euthanasia" was, as she mentioned, I got to stay because they were low on kids.

* OlderThanFeudalism example from [[Literature/TheBible the New Testament]]: Jesus's followers are squabbling over who will be greatest in the coming Kingdom of Heaven. Jesus responded: "Amen, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven", so he meant "[[CompletelyMissingThePoint It's not about being high up and powerful]], but [[HumbleHero humbly accepting truth]]".

The age European culture has assigned to the end of "childhood" has grown over the years and an "inbetween" period was added in the 1960s or so--"teenage-hood"--but the meme remains: a child is a BlankSlate not yet sullied by the [[GrowingUpSucks evils of the world]]. Only upon [[ComingOfAgeStory coming of age]] do they lose this innocence and the protection it confers. A child's death, even that of a boy, is a tragedy; but a young man just a year older than him [[WeHaveReserves is in the most expendable demographic in the world.]]

* What ultimately saved Ed Macafrey from criminal charges in ''Film/MenDontTell''. After years of being [[DomesticAbuse abused]] by his wife, she hits their daughter, he tries to defend her by restraining his wife, and in the struggle, his wife fell head first through a window. He is then arrested and accused of wife beating and attempted murder. He tells his side of the story to the cops, who don't believe him, all the while his daughter stays at Ed's father's place... When she finally, innocently asks if her mother is gonna be in trouble for all what she did, not realizing that her dad was the one in trouble. So her grandfather brings her to the police station to testify.

** In the Catholic Church, those who have not yet reached maturity are considered to be unable to commit mortal sin on the basis that they lack reason (and by extension lack full knowledge, one of the requirements necessary for a sin to be mortal). Additionally the Catholic Church holds that any baptised person who dies before attaining reason goes to Heaven. The Catechism of the Catholic Church concludes that while it can't be said for sure what happens to baptised children, there is good reason to believe that God has mercy on them on the basis that Jesus was a FriendToAllChildren.

* Most mainstream Christian Denominations believe that children are incapable of committing major sins by virtue of their youth. It is also generally believed that all baptized children who die immediately go to Heaven (what happens to unbaptized children is debated).

* The point of ''Anime/NowAndThenHereAndThere'' is that Children Are Innocent and you're sick if [[ColdBloodedTorture you torture them]], [[RapeAsDrama rape them]], [[TykeBomb make]] [[ChildSoldier them]] [[TykeBomb fight a war for you]], [[ForTheEvulz or]] [[SlaveryIsASpecialKindOfEvil mess with them]] [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil in any way whatsoever.]]
* In ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'', this is one of the stated reasons why Fate's sentence was light despite being an accomplice in the dimensional interference; she was just a child who was following her mother's wish and didn't fully understand the crime that she was committing. Also, Precia's an [[EvilMatriarch evil]] bitch for not only taking [[PowerOfTrust advantage of that trust]], [[AbusiveParents but abusing it]].
* In ''PhantomDreams'', when a Jaki kills a child for a spell, Tamaki is enraged.
-->''Such a... small life... crushed.''
* In ''Anime/SpaceRunawayIdeon'', the children on the Solo Ship are represented as the indifference between the warring sides, genuinely playful and optimistic, and completely oblivious to what's happening around them. Despite Karala Ajiba being an alien, the children accept her and see the good in her, in comparison to their paranoid older counterparts. Interestingly enough, [[spoiler:In the final film, Be Invoked, it's discovered that the children's innocence is the key to controlling the Ide, with Karala's recently revealed pregnancy by human Bes Jordan acting a sign that peace is possible.

** Believe it or not, Mao (the PsychopathicManchild) touches upon this trope. Most of his evil deeds are a direct result of serious MoralMyopia brought about from his lack of normal human experience since childhood. With his mind-reading powers, he first learned about humanity's evil impulses ''much too young,'' and so automatically assumed that the people thinking them were bad and deserved to be killed, a fact that carries over into the actual plot action, where he's seventeen. This is all talked about in the supplementary readings, where CC frequently comments on his misplaced innocence.
** An inversion occurs during Lelouch's RoaringRampageOfRevenge [[spoiler:over Shirley's death]].

** Eren Yeager is shown to have [[ExploitedTrope used this to his advantage]] in an incident of TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior.

Taishou on the other hand, (who is Buchi's best and only friend) is a different case. As a kid Taishou was also very innocent as well just like Buchi. But when he met a group of kids that he wanted to be friends with, all of the kids bullied him, and not just a little bit. Taishou was bullied so much in first grade it can even be considered torture. Because of that experience, he became a bit of a bully himself. He became friends with Buchi in second grade when Buchi was being bullied because Taishou knew what Buchi was going through since he was in his position before.

Further, nobody takes issue with her sucking on ample exposed breasts because she's a toddler, and that's what they do.
