* ''Literature/TheBusinessOfDying'' has Molly Hagger, a 13-year-old prostitute. She was sexuall abused and molested by her mother and her mother's lover from the age of 4 onward and continued to have multiple sexual partners of either gender, which left her with a very mature stance towards sex and an intense hatred for authority.

* ''PeacemakerKurogane'': Poor Tetsunosuke saw his parents get murdered right in front of his eyes, years later he continues to see people get murdered, and the killer who murdered his parents tries to come after him later on too. Is it any wonder that he spends about four episodes in HeroicBSOD mode?

* Sagara Sousuke from ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic''. Even earlier than when he became a ChildSoldier, he witnessed his beautiful mother dying for him, before his eyes. Her last words to him were for him to live, never give up, and fight. This most definitely contributed to his CrazySurvivalist ways in the future. Though, seeing how violent and filled with death his childhood was, he's actually ''remarkably'' [[AngstWhatAngst well adjusted]].

** Itachi in turn was motivated to massacre his clan by the fact that they were planning to try to take over the village, thus starting a civil war (and a world war, due to other nations seizing advantage). This prospect was unrelentingly flashing him back to his own childhood, when in the words of Tobi ([[spoiler: Obito]]), "During the Third Ninja World War, Itachi, barely four years old, witnessed countless people slaughtered in cold blood. A four year-old is still too immature to turn war into experience for a child, war is hell. The trauma turned Itachi into a boy who loathed war and strife, and only desired peace."

* ''BusouRenkin'' has a pair of twins who initially had a happy childhood with a woman who they thought was their mother (she was a spurned lover of their actual father and had kidnapped them as revenge). One day, she died suddenly, and because of the kidnapping, she had made it so that the doors were locked from the inside. So, the children were trapped inside of an apartment with her corpse for several weeks, as their food supply gradually dwindled to nothing. During this time, they were constantly screaming and banging on the walls to be rescued, but their neighbors just shouted back for them to shut up. It's not too surprising that they were left thinking that HumansAreBastards, and [[FaceHeelTurn turned evil]].

Then his best friend Scott is fatally shot by assassins sent after Billy by Doctor Sivana, and dies on the operating table despite Billy getting him to the hospital as quickly as possible. Billy as Captain Marvel bursts into Sivana's office and barely stops himself from killing him, then flies off to a deserted snowpeaked mountain and sobs over his best friend's death. {{Superman}} isn't happy that Shazam passed the burden of this power onto Billy (though he did it because Billy was the only person on Earth that Shazam could trust with that power) because "[Little kids] shouldn't have to worry about ''assassins'' attacking them and killing their best friends!"

* Partly avoided but occasionally invoked in TalesOfTheBranionRealm, a medieval fantasy series in which most characters are squired to older warriors at age twelve. There's Demnor, who at five walks into the middle of an assassination attempt on [[BloodSplatteredInnocents himself]], and is surrounded and comforted by bloodied, injured and terrified guards moments after he's seen them kill all the assassins. Discussed with his ancestor Kassandra, who (also [[AChildShallLeadThem aged five]]) isn't ''supposed'' to order executions until she's adult, so what should her protectors do if she demands one without really understanding [[ChildrenAreInnocent what death means]]? They later take her onto the battlefield, where she can mentally sense every death; justified because her army ''has'' to see her leading it, since she's a living symbol of the realm. An AngstNuke nearly results.

* Souma of ''SakuraGari'' ''Manga/SakuraGari'' has a very DarkAndTroubledPast which, due to his [[SoBeautifulItsACurse gorgeous looks]], consists of him getting touched constantly by people (including his mother in that way), being persuaded by his friend [[spoiler: Katsuragi into wanting to kill his mother due to him being angry with her and when Souma couldn't go through with it Katsuragi took Souma's hand (that held a knife) and forcibly made him cut his mother's wrists while she was naked in a bathtub which causes her death, and Souma watched this happen completely horrified. And Katsuragi also involved himself with Souma when he was still a child as well]].
* Touyama of ''{{Texhnolyze}}'' ''Anime/{{Texhnolyze}}'' is quite lethal in battle with simply his fists, or with a katana. This is because he had a troubled childhood [[spoiler: growing up in the slums of Lux. He father continually molested him and he was stuck around people who did nothing with their lives. In order to escape from that and make something of himself, he joined Organ, a organization that routinely kills members of the Alliance.]]

* Creator/NickPerumov's ''Literature/KeeperOfTheSwords'' cycle. It is revealed that DarkMagicalGirl Sylvia had to fight in the wars (as a witch) from early on, so that by ten(!), she was "[[ChildSoldier already considered a battle-hardened veteran]]". She also suggests that she witnessed other witch, Seges, being a "pervert", though it's not clear whether she herself was abused. In the story itself, she has a NearDeathExperience AT LEAST once a book. She gets speared, buried under rubble of a tower, her head smashed with a candelabre, hit by magical lightning... Way to have a childhood.

* The StarWarsExpandedUniverse novel ''Literature/LegacyOfTheForce'' takes it [[UpToEleven up to]] OverNineThousand with Ben Skywalker. Picture a thirteen-year-old boy joining his cousin's version of the Hitler Youth, being trained as a Sith, regularly tortured, taken to a Sith planet (and choosing ''not'' to [[IAmAHumanitarian eat the girl]]), and then he turns 14, his mother dies, his memory's wiped, he assassinates a head of state, he's tortured, offered sex in exchange for information, and when neither of those work, he's forced to watch a friend die.

* In ''Videogame/RyuGaGotoku'', former Yakuza Kiryu Kazuma takes nine year old Haruka to odd places when he isn't kicking major ass, such as gambling dens ("It's take your daughter to work day") and soaphouses ("It's a... social studies field trip").
* As becomes aptly clear during the game, Jennifer in ''Videogame/RuleOfRose'' has survived ''two'' distinct massacres in her childhood, and she's implied to have witnessed the sexual abuse of some of her fellow orphans as well. The game revolves around dealing with her traumas and helping her to face the future.
* ''Videogame/{{Drakengard}}'' involves a mission in which you must you kill [[spoiler: Child Conscripts]] with which the main character shows practically no remorse over slaughtering. As well as this, the main antagonist is a [[spoiler: six year old EnfantTerrible]] Add to the fact that one of the party members is a pedophile while the other is a child-murdering cannibal. The final party member? A six year old boy. Did we mention that ''Drakengard'' is ''not'' one of the most kid-friendly games on the planet?

** Dave had some of this too, as his brother made sex-toy puppets for a living, left hundreds of them lying around all over their apartment, set up traps which dropped heaps of puppets on Dave, and may have misled him into being involved offscreen in the production of at least one "puppet snuff film" involving a blender. Violence-wise, Bro also put Dave through TrainingFromHell with daily swordfights on the roof, and inexplicably kept the swords in question in the fridge, requiring Dave to hide food in his closet. The fanfic ''{{Fanfic/Brainbent}}'' takes this to it's logical conclusion and has CPS intervene and remove Dave from Bro's custody, and many other fics have the same premise.

* In 1953, a five-year-old boy named Creator/ShigesatoItoi accidentally walked into a theater playing the movie ''Film/TheMilitaryPolicemanAndTheDismemberedBeauty'' during a sex scene followed by a murder scene (tame by today's standards, but a bit strong back then), and in his youthful naiveté mistook it for what he would later identify as a rape scene; regardless of what it was, it had a significant impact on his psyche. The ostensible result, after several decades of nightmares, was ''Videogame/EarthBound'''s infamous final boss, [[EldritchAbomination Giygas]].
* Various NGOs estimate that there are around 250,000 ChildSoldiers in the world today.
