But they're [[TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior dangerous ]]. An Enfant Terrible ''knows'' people think they're cute, and will [[DeliberatelyCuteChild use that to their advantage]]. When one person finds out, said hero usually has a hard time convincing others, [[WoundedGazelleGambit who will turn on them for even suggesting such a thing about the poor, poor child]].

* The Warriors of Hope in ''VideoGame/AbsoluteDespairGirls''. All of them are around 10-11 years old, and they're killing every adult in Towa City. Special mention goes to [[spoiler:Monaka Towa, for deceiving all the other Warriors of Hope into almost committing suicide and, at the end of the game, taking over as the successor to Junko Enoshima.]] The fanbase doesn't call her Satan for nothing.

No RealLife examples, please! It is sufficient to say that psychopathy manifests itself from a very young age, and there is some TruthInTelevision in this trope.

* Lizzie from season four of ''Series/TheWalkingDead.'' She actually believed that the walkers are people just like us and had a sick fantasy of being friends with them. She tries to prove this by murdering her little sister, believing that she'll be the same when she reanimates. She was also very close to killing baby Judith as well. Luckily, Carol and Tyreese stopped her before she could do it. Carol then believes that they were not safe around Lizzie and she had no choice but to kill her.
-->'''Carol:'''Just look at the flowers, Lizzie. *BANG!*

* ''Series/LawAndOrder'': An eight-year-old girl who [[DoesNotLikeMen has ISSUES with the male gender]]: she would rip out the eyes out of males in pictures, poisoned a cat just to watch it die (and doesn't flinch when the Psychiatrist yells at her for it), scared her nanny to do her bidding... and murdered a younger boy and stuffed a battery in his mouth. And doesn't have, and likely is completely incapable of feeling, a shred of remorse. [[spoiler: She gets off, based in part on the argument that she's too young to fully understand death, and the last shot has her coolly regarding another young boy, with the implication that more death is in her future.]]
