* Subverted in ''Anime/DigimonAdventure''. Despite Hikri appearing much later than the other Digidestined there was already a younger child on the team with Takei. ''Digimon'' is good at avoiding this. The child character in a show about teens or young adults is often bound straight for {{Scrappy}}dom from the word go, but the Digimon kids usually escape it.

* Danny Chase in the comic book version of ''ComicBook/TeenTitans''. He was even designed to ''look'' like Cousin Oliver. Combine this with abrasive personality, lack of codename, costume, or original powers and he quickly became a CreatorsPet, as well. In other words, Danny Chase is to the Teen Titans what Zan, Jayna, Wendy and Marvin are to the ''SuperFriends'' Justice League. At least they tried to be heroes; Chase tried to be holier-than-thou.

* Dale from ''LawAndOrderSVU''. Subverted in his final appearance in which he turns out to be a psychotic killer pushed to breaking point by a season of being treated like a screw up and a kid. Though in their defense, he was a screw up and a ManChild.

* Several chapters into ''Manga/SchoolLive'' Yuuri literally remembers she has a little sister. She had forgotten her due to the zombie apocalypse. She later saves her from a zombie-infested school and Ruu becomes a TagalongKid. The series compares [[KiddieKid the notoriously immature]] Yuki to Ruu and explains that Yuki was a ReplacementGoldfish, and Ruu explains why Yuuri is such a CoolBigSis. [[spoiler:In a dark twist it is heavily implied Ruu is DeadAllAlong and that Yuuri is hallucinating a teddy bear is her little sister]].

* Subverted with [[FanNickname Kid-Loki]] who is just the normal SelfDemonstrating/{{Loki}} reincarnated as his kid self (with only his childhood memories and powers). He has avoided being TheScrappy by being just so much fun to read about (getting the best lines in any current Thor comic), and because he is perfectly aware that he's doing things most kids shouldn't do (but, being Loki, doesn't care because he wants [[BigBrotherWorship to save Thor's life from The Serpent]]. D'awww). Plus he somehow gets the two best parts of being a KidHero--he has the youthful idealism (as much as anyone is idealistic in [[CrapsackWorld post-Civil War Marvel]], anyways), ''and'' the maturity to still actually get things done. He might be the best-liked Cousin Oliver ever for that.
