Describing a character as being fond of, or having a soft spot for, children is an automatic PetTheDog since ChildrenAreInnocent with bonus points if [[LickedByTheDog the kids like the character back]]. Characters who [[ChildHater don't like kids]] are usually villains or anti-heroic. Note that this trope doesn't apply if it is a disguise put on to avoid suspicion for [[Paedohunt something]] [[{{Lolicon}} else]] [[{{Shotacon}} entirely...]]

* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'': Judy has a soft spot for kids as she quickly falls for Nick's scam at the ice cream shop when she sees his elephant loving son with dreams of becoming one (actually a disguised Finnick)that she not only buys the Jumbo Pop for Finnick, but also takes him by the hand and gives him a ZPD sticker while encouraging him to pursue his dream. This even causes her to discover that she was scammed when she sees Finnick later on her shift and excitedly goes to greet him. Much later on the film, what inspires her to take the case of Mr. Otterton is seeing his wife pulling a picture of their two kids.

God help you if you're dumb enough to harm a child in the presence of someone with this character trait. [[BerserkButton They do not]] [[PapaWolf like that]] [[MamaBear at all]]. (Then again [[FriendToAllChildren this trope]] is a trait of Jesus [see right], and by extension God Himself, so you may not get that help.)

* In ''Franchise/HarvestMoon", the main character is usually always instant friends with the children, even the shy ones. This becomes even more apparent in games where a character that lived in the same village as the child ''for years'' frightens them, yet the MC as a total stranger gets instantly accepted as a new friend.

* Another WWII example: A fairly anti-semitic Polish policeman was sweeping an abandoned ghetto with other policemen and the Nazis, looking for hidden Jews. Seeing a ladder leading up into an attic, he climbed the ladder to find several hiding Jewish children and their mother, picking them out with the light of his lantern. He could have gotten massive rewards and a promotion. But when the SS officer in charge called to him from below to ask if he had found anything, he replied, "No," and left. We do not know what happened to that policeman, but the family survived and remembered his action that day.

* In ''[[VideoGame/BioShock Bioshock]]'', Jack becomes this if the player chooses to rescue every Little Sister encountered. [[spolier: Rescuing all The Little Sisters results in the Happy Ending, in which Jack adopts five of them as his own daughters. They hold his hand lovingly when Jack finally dies of old age.]]

* Dee and Dum from ''Webcomic/AliceAndTheNightmare'' claim that working with kids is the best part of their job, although Alt Text suggests that it's not entirely true. Their students certainly like them, though.
