* Suzette Grady of ''Webcomic/{{Precocious}}'' expanded 'Blame Jacob' (a merchandise slogan based on blaming one of her classmates for ''all the world's ills'') into a multinational corporation, including shady ties in the People's Republic of China for manufacturing. She does at least mention the multiple levels of corruption, bribery, and other shady tactics that she needs in order to keep control.
* For a while, Fiona Fennec of ''Webcomic/KevinAndKell'' 'had custody' of her parents -- while they were divorcing, for various plot reasons Fiona was the one with the actual wealth.

* There are several in the ''Grantville Gazette'' short stories of the Literature/SixteenThirtyTwo novels, though the most notable (The Higgins Sewing Machine Company) hired some adults to handle the high level business decisions once they actually had a product that was ready for sale. Other businesses started by school children in Grantville included the sale of pipes, mushrooms, and cheese (the kids who ran the latter industry ended up becoming ''their parent's landlord'').

** Long before that, Bart purchased an abandoned, dilapidated factory for one dollar, and "hires" Milhouse. It doesn't last, though, as the building crumbles and collapses. Bart invokes this trope, although it's mostly just an excuse to play and to feel important.

* In an episode of ''Westeranimation/{{Futurama}}'', Dwight and Cubert start a paper route to get spending money, which quickly grows big enough for them to buy out Planet Express. Unfortunately, it turns out they're not very good at running a company...

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': [[ShowWithinAShow A show seen on TV]] is "Admiral Baby", about a baby in command of the Sixth Fleet.
** Another show they watch is "Supreme Courtney," about a Tween girl on the Supreme Court.
*** Amazingly, [[LoopholeAbuse there is no law against a child serving on the Supreme Court.]] The ONLY requirement to get onto the Supreme Court is that you must be nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate.

* Seto Kaiba in ''Anime/YuGiOh''. He won Kaiba Corp from his step-dad when he was a child, and turned it from a weapons-manufacturer to the major provider of the game's central Children's Card Game.
** Sort-of averted in the [[Anime/YuGiOhFirstAnimeSeries first series anime]], where the iconic "wrest control of Kaiba Corp from Gozaburo" scene takes place not during a flashback, but in present day, where Kaiba is presumably older and of proper age to run the company.
** Sort-of averted in all the incarnations really since it's stated that Kaiba won Kaiba Corp 6 years after his adoption at age 10 (or 12 for dub viewers). On screen or off screen, he was around 16 (or 18) when he became the CEO. Still young, but not as bad.

* ''LightNovel/RentalMagica'' has both Astral and Goetia assigned very youngs 'heirs by blood' -- and in case of Astral, magically inept boy who had to learn on the fly -- as acting presidents after disappearance of their old bosses. {{Justified|Trope}}, as in both cases the alternatives were either worse or unavailable.
