* SurvivalOfTheFittest: Even if you don't count the teenagers (who are usually 15-19) being forced to kill each other, there have been a few younger characters on the show as well, such as 12-year olds who did fit this.

* EndersGame is the epitome of ChildrenForcedToKill. All of the characters are prepubescent or slightly older ChildSoldiers being trained to kill an invading alien force.

* ''TheTomorrowSeries'': Ellie and her friends didn't set out originally to be guerrillas...
* In the ''[[{{Dragonlance}} Dark Disciple Trilogy]]'' this is the most terrible facet of the Children of Chemosh. This otherwise NighInvulnerable version of TheUndead created by Chemosh can only be destroyed if a child strikes them. The destruction of the creature is so horrifying that it also traumatizes the child and robs them of their youthful innocence forever.
* In ''ASongOfIceAndFire'', nine-year old Arya Stark has to do this more than once when she's thrust into a wartorn countryside. She moves from simple self-defense to pre-meditated murder, and eventually [[spoiler: becomes the apprentice of a guild of assassins]].

* This is standard in the setting of ''{{Drowtales}}'', where children as young as 10 are expected to be able to defend themselves if need be, and the straightest example is when Ariel, who at the time is the equivalent of a 7 year old human child, [[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?sid=4501 is forced to choose]] between killing Mir'kiin, an asshole who had tried to kill her, and fighting her cousin to the death. She chooses to kill Mir'kiin, and it's heavily implied this leaves her with PTSD.

* In the [[AfterTheEnd world]] of TheLastOfUs, 14 year old [[{{Deuteragonist}} Ellie]] is forced kill not only [[TechnicallyLivingZombie Infected Humans]] but other humans too in self-defense. The Resort level particular has Ellie taking on an entire town of bandits by herself and killing their leader at the end.

** Kurumi was forced to kill her [[KillTheOnesYouLove crush]] by [[ShovelAttack sticking a shovel through his throat]]. After that she is the main ActionGirl of the series who kills zombies of all [[UndeadChildren ages]] and [[RaisingTheSteaks species]]. [[spoiler:She was unable to kill her former teacher and survivor, Megu-nee, which led her to become infected. She was saved by a MagicAntidote but multiple signs point to it not working 100% or the effects slowly reversing.]]

* ''Manga/GunslingerGirl'' is all about this. The oldest girl is 16 and the youngest can't be older than 12, but they're all assassins.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/SchoolLive'' takes place in a ZombieApocalypse with [[TeenageWasteland no adults]] so this is obligatory. Zombies aren't technically alive in the first place however they act similarly enough.

** Yuki is the most [[KiddieKid immature]] of the teens and [[ThroughTheEyesOfMadness doesn't even know about the zombies]] due to being in a hallucinatory state. She was forced to kill a zombie in the manga (in the anime she simply tried, and failed, to hit one) when [[spoiler:she encounters it while cleaning up a classroom all alone. She attacks it with a mop and promptly starts to FreakOut.]] This event is a major point in her CharacterDevelopment where she begins to act more reliable.

* Some beasts pulled into the fighting in the ''{{Redwall}}'' novels were quite young (as young as preteens - [[ImprobableAge or younger]]). Some of whose reactions were understandable, [[CreepyChild while others]] [[NotAGame were not]].

* ''Film/TheHungerGames'': Yet another horrifying aspect of the Hunger Games. Perfectly ordinary children are forced in a situation where, if they do not kill others, they themselves will die (excepting the Career Tributes).

* Cassandra Cain, the third [[ComicBook/{{Batgirl 2000}} Batgirl]], was trained to be this when she was younger. Subverted in that, after her first kill, she panicked and ran off, vowing never to take another life.
* In ''ComicBook/TheWalkingDead'', [[spoiler: Carl's shooting saves the lives of both his parents within a day of each other.]]

* Example from, of all places, ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive''. Well, depending on your definition of 'child', but [[spoiler: Susan and Nanase]] probably weren't much more than 12 when, during a class-trip to France, they wind up being targeted by a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Somewhat Different Vampire]]. He's not technically human, but he LOOKS human - mostly - and while [[spoiler: Nanase]] does most of the fighting, it's [[spoiler: Susan]] who ends up having to kill him - with an axe, even. Unsurprisingly, she was traumatized, and the recent arc that featured the flashback culminated in an Immortal decrying the irresponsibility of the two french Immortals who originally equipped [[spoiler: Nanase and Susan]] for the battle, while giving them no apparent alternative save dying at the hands of the vampire. Apparently, they could have simply informed the French Government's anti-supernatural-creature-squad instead, but elected to drag two pre-teens into a battle in order to 'recruit them for the fight against evil'.
