* In the ''Literature/TalesOfTheOtori'' prequel ''Heaven's Net is Wide'', the turning point in TheHighQueen Maruyama's loyalty comes when her baby is killed by a member of a {{Ninja}} tribe. As a veteran YamatoNadeshiko, she gives little outward reaction, except for a TearJerker poem:
--> ''"Like young fern shoots\\
My child's fingers curled.\\
I did not expect,\\
In the fifth month, frost."''

* The [[[[NeverLiveItDown infamous]] ''ComicBook/AmazonsAttack'' opens with members of the tribe butchering a father vacationing in Washington, D.C. with his son.... and then as the child starts crying they slaughter him too. It all goes downhill from there, folks...

* In ''ComicBook/AmericaVsTheJusticeSociety'', Green Lantern Alan Scott recalls the death of a child that took place during his battle of Wotan, an event that affected him so greatly that he resigned for several years as the Justice Society's chairman. The death, as it turns out, was that of a child that Ian Karkull realized would someday become a United States President.



* Franchise/{{Batman}}'s arch enemy ComicBook/TheJoker has killed many children. Some examples include the brutal killing of 15 year old Jason Todd in "A Death in the Family" and on at least one occasion he blew up a school full of children.
** In ''Comicbook/{{Flashpoint}}'', Joe Chill accidentally kills 8 year old Bruce Wayne instead of his parents.
** Two ComicBook/{{Robin}}s have died. Damian was around ten while the above mentioned Jason was fifteen. Both ended up revived in the end, though Jason CameBackWrong.



* "The Gauntlet" arc from the ''ComicBook/BrandNewDay'' story sees longtime recurring Franchise/SpiderMan character Billy Conners [[spoiler: getting eaten alive by his own father after the Lizard side completely takes him over.]]



* In ''ComicBook/{{Fray}}'', Urkonn the demon Watcher kills a young girl Fray regards as her little sister, then [[MotivationalLie blames it on the vampires in order to spur her into defeating the vampires]].
* A particularly [[NeverLiveItDown infamous]] example is New 52 ComicBook/HarleyQuinn giving out various handheld video games to both children and adults, then setting off the bombs while crying. Due to the near instantaneous InternetBackdraft DC has claimed CanonDiscontinuity on the issue.



* ''ComicBook/ThePunisherMAX'':
** It's revealed in a flashback that [[spoiler:General Zakharov, in order to draw an enemy force out of hiding, THREW A BABY OFF A CLIFF]].
** In another story arc Mafia boss Nicky Cavella killed a rival boss' young son and fed him to him.



* Creator/MarvelComics: One of the things that made ComicBook/{{Magneto}} from ''Comicbook/XMen'' turn into a psycho would-be world conqueror was the death by fire of his daughter Anya, who was somewhere between the ages of 2 and 5. A group of humans were attempting to beat Magneto, possibly to death, for having extorted his full pay out of a cheating boss with powers he had just manifested that day, while at the same time his daughter was screaming out the window of the second story of an inn on fire. Having just learned he ''had'' powers, he couldn't control them well enough to free himself of his attackers and save his daughter until she had burned to death, at which point he went temporarily insane and killed everyone except his wife (everyone on the street, at least, and some sources indicate possibly everyone in the city). This led his wife to run from him in terror. It is possible that the fire at the inn was arson, given the remarkable coincidence of the inn burning down at the ''same'' time as the gang attacking him.



* In ''ComicBook/TheWalkingDead'''s [[WhamEpisode Wham Issue]], [[spoiler:Rick's baby]] is among the ''many'' casualties. Aside from that, several of the zombies in the background are children.
* ''Comicbook/{{Watchmen}}'':
** The Comedian, in a flashback scene, blows away a Vietnamese woman pregnant with ''his own child''.
** There's Rorschach investigating the case of Blaire, a very young girl who has been abducted... [[spoiler: He finds her too late; she has already been murdered and her remains fed to the killer's dogs.]]

* In ''VideoGame/JurassicParkTheGame'', failing some {{Quick Time Event}}s can result in Jess Harding being eaten by dinosaurs. It immediately results in [[TheManyDeathsOfYou "you're dead, try again"]], so there's no actual child death in the actual storyline.
