** Perhaps the most extreme is "animeYuGiOhZexal". Taking place in a beautiful, colorful, carnival like city called Heartland during a period when the duel monsters game is used as a MundaneUtility, you are led to think that it will be a cute, child friendly show; it's not (even in the English dub). The main character, Yuma, and his best friends being 11-13 years old (depending on the medium) doesn't save them from being pulled into the intergalactic numbers war and experiencing severe pain and torture at the hands of the villains. The Arklight siblings are verbally and mentally abused by their father, Tron, so that they will help him carry out his revenge which includes torturing a young child in front of his big brother before stealing his powers and nearly killing him, and attempting to kill another duelist's sister in a fire. The numbers duelist's working for Dr. Faker and Mr.Heartland were recruited as young children and put through brutal, almost fatal, dueling exercises to train them to steal peoples souls. The youngest member of the reoccurring cast Harto/Hart, is a small CreepyChild who is manipulated into using his physic powers to attack innocent people in another dimension. The poor kid is also used as a pawn; [[spoiler:He is actually possessed]] and it has caused him to develop a sickness that will eventually become fatal, and this is used to convince the kid's brother to become a soul-steeling number hunter to cure him.
** The second part of the series ,Zexal II, is made EVEN WORSE, if that's even possible, by introducing the seven Barrien Emperors; seven teenagers/young adults who are the reincarnations of the original seven Emperors. Originally, the seven were young kids who had short, brutal life's before they died. Their reincarnations are convince to reprise their original forms to help their world; by destroying earth. The main characters, who, again, are all young kids, are forced to watch the destruction of their home and the deaths of thousands of innocents, before [[spoiler:each of them are forced into death duels or outright killed as sacrifices.]] The seven Barrien's realize their mistakes, but are all [[spoiler:killed as well]]. By the end of the series,[[spoiler: Everyone but Yuma has been killed off]],although [spoiler:TheyGetBetter]]. Poor Yuma has a near mental breakdown and sinks into a HeroicBBSD, but he GetsBetter eventually,as well.
** The manga makes it even worse ,if possible, by portraying the villains and their actions completely differently. The seemingly stupid, useless Mr.Heartland is actually an extremely sick psychopath who only does what he does for fun. The two bad guys who undergo a HeelFaceTurn are never given the chance to in the books;[[spoiler: Tron expresses regret, but is KilledOffForReal right away and doesn't get a chance to redeem himself, while Dr.Faker was revealed to be a dead corpse turned into a puppet all along.]] The DiskOneFinalVillian is also different; a torture loving EldrichAbomination who calls herself the Godess of Darkness/Pain. Needless to say, the characters mental states are even worse in the manga.
** "AnimeYuGiOhArcV" has recently surpassed zexal as being the worst for the young protagonists. It features inter-dimensional wars, genocide, and child soldiers.

* Both versions of the Helena Bertinelli's ComicBook/{{Huntress}}'s version involve this. In her original backstory, she was raped when she was six by a rival crime boss to torture her father. In the modified backstory Creator/GregRucka introduced in ''Cry for Blood'', it was retconned that her family was killed while she was eight.

* Kiba from ''Anime/WolfsRain'' tears out a mans throat in front of a boy.



* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', being a show about war, often delves into this. The two most obvious would be Katara witnessing a man threatening her mother (and the implication of finding her corpse afterward), and the flash-back to [[WellIntentionedExtremist young Jet]] watching his entire village and family get burned down.

** Hatake Kakashi ''fought'' in that Third Ninja World War. He was genin at 5 and chunin by the time he was 6, and considering they were at war at the time I don't think he would have done kid-friendly missions. If Naruto and his friends were involved in life-death fights as 12 year olds during what's supposed to be ''peace'' time, what was a 6 year old chunin doing in ''war'' time? He also saw his father's body after he committed suicide, saw Obito die at 13, was forced to kill [[spoiler:his remaining team-mate Rin]] soon after, and a month before he hit 14 lost his sensei to the Kyuubi's attack. An adult Kakashi mentions that everyone he cared for is dead.
