* ''WesternAnimation/RightNowKapow'' has a short sketch involving this. In an inversion of a well known fact, everytime the infant in the sketch closes his eyes, his mother literally ceases to exist. She is horrified upon discovering this. NothingIsScarier after all. The baby lies down for a nap at the end of the sketch. Poor lady.

* In Creator/RobinMcKinley[='=]s ''Spindle's End'' (an [[AdaptationExpansion expansion]] of the various "Sleeping Beauty" stories) magic permeates ''everything'' and the "Fairies" are actually normal people who happen to have the inborn ability to control it. The Fairy condition may not necessarily be hereditary and most Fairies come into their power [[PubertySuperpower as teens]]. However, a few Fairies manifest powers ''very'' early, a phenomenon known in the novel as "Baby Magic". As cutesy as that sounds, it's actually very dangerous and unpredictable, especially because yu never know how those powers will manifest. A baby Fairy may be able to intuitively understand AnimalTalk. Or, he may be able to [[BalefulPolymorph transform the nanny into a terrier]] and pull a OneWingedAngel act ''every'' time he has a tantrum....

** In the episode "The Crystalling", Twilight Sparkle and her friends meet Shining Armor and Cadance's newborn foal, Flurry Heart... who happens to be the first pony born an alicorn since the foundation of Equestria. She not only has the strength of an earth pony, the magic of a unicorn, and the flight of a pegasus, but her powers are far above those of other newborn ponies, and even some full-grown ones! However, she suffers from PowerIncontinence: she's a newborn foal and all foals tend to have bursts of their powers strike up. [[spoiler:In her case, her sneezes causes her to blow holes in the castle via her unicorn magic and her crying actually ''destroys the Crystal Heart''. Starlight Glimmer's foalhood friend Sunburst has to create a PowerLimiter spell to keep that magic under control.]]

* This is the entire premise of ''{{minus}}'', a webcomic about an omnipotent little girl. The title character has created and destroyed entire worlds while playing. Frequently involves disturbing FridgeLogic / FridgeBrilliance which proves that even a sweet-tempered, happy little kid like [[{{alllowercaseletters}} minus]] can do some mind-warpingly horrible things when given godlike power. The comic is full of one-shots and brief arcs, the last of which involved a well-meaning young couple convincing her to use her powers to make the world better, ultimately leading to [[spoiler: the resurrection of everyone who had ever died. EVER. Which in turn led to the death by crushing or suffocation of all life on Earth]]. It's not quite the DownerEnding it sounds like.

* ''Franchise/PrettyCure''. Chiffon and Ai-Chan of ''Anime/FreshPrettyCure'' and ''Anime/DokiDokiPrettyCure'' fit the bill pretty well as they were baby fairies with incredible power. Chiffon especially, as ''Fresh'''s story revolved around trying to protect her, and with the StoryBreakerPower of telekinesis and teleportation, the writers were [[DeusExitMachina forced to essentially find a way to put her out of the story]] in TheMovie and the ''Anime/PrettyCureAllStars'' movies.
* Sasami of ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'' cheats: [[spoiler:she was never born god-like, she was bonded to the goddess Tsunami to save her life. However, thanks to the extreme trauma of it all, she thinks she was revived as a simple vessel for her. She doesn't like talking about it. At all.]]

* One ''WesternAnimation/{{Pinky and the Brain}}'' episode had the duo discover the baby [[{{Superman}} Kal-El]] before the Kents. Although Brain initially wants to turn the kid into a TykeBomb after seeing his amazing powers, he eventually realizes he's not cut out to raise a kid, let alone one with superpowers. Pinky and the Brain return Kal-El to his ship, right before the Kents arrive.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', the sequel to ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', has Korra, the new Avatar. She first displayed bending skills in three of the four elements ''at the age of five.''
* [[TheSmurfs Baby Smurf]] is enchanted and often demonstrates magic powers when a DeusExMachina is required without the other ''Smurfs'' knowledge with the lone exception of Papa.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' are physically five year old girls with extraordinary superpowers. This is shown well in TheMovie, where they wreck the city by simply ''playing tag''.



* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}},'' Alexander Xanatos is descended from TheFairFolk, and while his half-fairy mother's power has withered to basically nothing, he's getting training pretty much from birth. At only a few months old, he's able to transfer souls between bodies. Fortunately, for now he has one limitation--he can't actually ''talk'' to do the spells. The only time we see him do magic himself is when he's using [[TheSmartGuy Lexington]] as a ([[ExactWords somewhat]]-)WillingChanneler.

Arguably, she's also the most powerful, not to mention having gotten the closest to getting Ladybug and Chat Noir's Miraculouses. It helped that Marinette had told her the usual motivation of akuma victims earlier that day.

** A few seasons earlier, in the episode "Baby Cakes," Mr. and Mrs. Cake's infant foals Pumpkin Cake and Pound Cake are shown to have abilities way above what the adult ponies exhibit even when exerting themselves. It takes Pinkie Pie everything she has to prevent them from destroying the house.

* The apocryphal early Christian text the "Infancy Gospel of Thomas" treats [[{{Jesus}} Jesus Christ]] as an example of this.
** Islamic tradition recognizes Jesus as a Prophet of God, a miracle worker, and born of a virgin (though not God himself). One such miracle was an incident where he performed one of his famous ShamingTheMob speeches ''from his crib'' as an infant.

** Any Saiyan HalfHumanHybrid can be relied on to crush a Big Bad who has otherwise proved unstoppable. Two of the {{Big Bad}}s of the series (Raditz and Cell) are defeated by Gohan as a toddler and pre-teen respectively. However, it's also subverted in that these power spurts are the result of short-lived moments of UnstoppableRage; Gohan didn't constantly train and focus to keep up his might or to hold his temper in check, and that's largely why Goku is the one to defeat Frieza and Majin Buu.
