* ''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.

* Ciel Phantomhive in ''Manga/BlackButler'' is about twelve years old and runs the Funtom Toy Company. Though it might be justified in that he's a Victorian era aristocrat and rather [[DeceasedParentsAreTheBest prematurely]] forced into the status of Earl of Phantomhive, having a demonically hypercompetent butler doesn't hurt either.
