* In ''Literature/{{Palimpsest}},'' people who can travel to Palimpsest in their dreams are marked with a tattoo of a region of the city somewhere on their body. One woman so marked had a baby after receiving her tattoo - and her baby was born ''covered'' in tattoos - not of Palimpsest, of someplace else - and minutes after birth he looked at his mother and said "''I want to go back.''" His mother had a sort of FreakOut and gave him up for adoption.

* Eren from ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' is a heroic version. At the tender age of nine, he tracked down a gang of murderers that had kidnapped a girl (Mikasa) and proceeded to lure them in with fake tears. When the first man got down to comfort him, he stabbed the man in the throat with a knife. The second fared much worse, getting stabbed with an improvised spear, knocked to the ground, and stabbed over and over again while Eren screamed at him. When questioned about his actions, he calmly stated the criminals were simply animals that happened to look like people. His actions were ruled justified, but the officers investigating were visibly frightened by what a nine-year-old boy had done.

* ''Manga/ElfenLied'' is about a race of superpowered psychotic little mutant girls called The Diclonius. The greatest danger comes from them developing tremendous telekinetic powers at an age when they don't yet fully comprehend hurting other people and accidentally kill their families, but most that could be captured alive become highly aggressive and violent in response to the treatment they get from the people experimenting on them. And then there's Mariko, a five-year-old girl who is so powerful that she grew up inside a sealed vault and fed by tubes her whole life and unsurprisingly became completely insane. The only thing that can keep her in line are [[ExplosiveLeash explosive implants]] all over her body that can be triggered remotely at any time and also require a remote confirmation code every 30 minutes or explode automatically.

* Dio of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' as a child killed his father, got adopted into the rich family of the main character, made said main guy look like a bitch for all of his early childhood years, kissed the girl that the main guy liked, burned his dog in an oven, and beat him up in a boxing match. And this is all before he becomes a vampire and causes trouble for three of the main character's descendents. His primary motivation for the vampirism? The main guy beat him for having kissed his girl, so he decided to get back at him in the worst way possible.

Within the ''four hours'' from her birth to the end of ''Fear'', she manages to torture Penny after she accidentally drops her and then laugh at the scene; laugh, once more, at seeing terrified children ''walk into a fire'' due to Penny's visions; and forcing her mother to relieve her horrible memories of eating Panda.

What's worse is that she doesn't regret any of this as an adult. If anything, she's ''proud'' she was so "bold", so young. In light of this, it's no wonder Joffrey turned out the way he did with Cersei as his primary parental figure.

* ''Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle'' has a few: Francis, the eldest, did several horrible things as a toddler, and ended up lighting his teddy bear on fire (and the fact that he poured lighter fluid on it implies that it was deliberate), and it is heavily implied that Francis' final action was the reason why Lois ended up having to become such a strict mother. Reese kicked his mother hard enough to force her to go into labor several hours before the scheduled time for labor, and then kicked the doctor as he was born.

* In the ''Series/ILoveLucy'' episode "The Amateur Hour", Lucy babysits twin boys. While playing CowboysAndIndians, they tie her up, intending to burn her at the stake (and though of course it's PlayedForLaughs, [[TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior they are serious]] about it!). A phone call from their mother interrupts them, but even when told what they've been up to she is oddly calm about the whole thing. All they get is a mild warning that their father would spank them both if they burned one more sitter at the stake. So, [[FridgeHorror frighteningly enough]], they've apparently done it before...

* Lock, Shock, and Barrel from ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'' look like trick or treating kids, but are among the most malevolent residents of Halloween Town. The only reason they don't kill Santa Claus instead of capturing him as ordered is because they're afraid Jack will punish them for [[LudicrousGibs losing parts of him in the process]].
