* Remilia Scarlet from ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' is sometimes [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation portrayed]] as such by the fandom, with [[NinjaMaid Sakuya]] usually being the object of [[SleepingWithTheBoss her desire]]. She's a vampire who [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld looks like a young child]] which can be {{Squick}}.

While some will [[KidAnova focus solely on their peers]], others want actual grown men and will proceed to seduce one. She may well initiate a TeacherStudentRomance plot. This, of course, has much bigger implications for their victim--who is very liable to a [[{{Pun}} sacking]] at best (if they're a teacher), with a [[JailBait statutory rape charge]] being more common (depends on jurisdiction, though).

** Even before season 4, Sansa is kind of one, although completely inadvertently. She doesn't ''try'' to, but does attract the attention of dangerous (not to mention full-grown) men: The Hound, Tyrion, Petyr…

It is also not uncommon to depict her as a major, but so much younger and less mature than the rest of the cast, that she is far closer to this than FemmeFatale or TheVamp -- particularly if her advances towards older men are rejected.

Note that, in real life, children who exhibit sexualized behavior have often been the victims of sexual abuse. This is rarely addressed in fiction. In some people's opinion, overexposure to adult content like movies, porn, {{the Internet|IsForPorn}}, and music can cause the same kind of prematurely sexualized behavior, though how true this is is ''[[InternetBackdraft HOTLY]]'' debated.

* Alois Trancy from the second season of ''Manga/BlackButler'' is one of the very few male examples; wearing skimpy booty shorts, acting slutty, having no respect for any private space...in fact, he's a textbook example for the oversexed behavior of some young victims of sexual abuse. [[spoiler: Sadly, Alois (or better said, Jim Macken) ''is'' one: he and other boys around his age were {{Sex Slave}}s for a rich nobleman, and he was the only one who survived. Already unstable from ''before'' the abuse thanks to the death of his younger brother Luca, Alois /Jim ultimately crossed the DespairEventHorizon and make a DealWithTheDevil, summoning Claude Faustus...]]

* Evangeline [=McDowell=] from ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' seems like this at first glance, but the little detail about her being [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld literally the]] [[spoiler: second]] [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld oldest entity on campus]] (including the ancient principal, the ghost that has been haunting her current classroom for sixty years, and, in all likelyhood, the dragon under the library) sort of disqualifies her.

* Nao from ''Anime/MaiHime''. She pretends to engage in EnjoKosai, then rolls the marks with her CHILD.

* Regina's little sister in ''Film/MeanGirls'' (who looks to be about nine) is seen imitating the girls on TV lifting their shirts up. Mark Waters says on the DVDCommentary that he felt it was the low point in his directing career asking the child actress to move closer to the teddy bear before flashing.
