* Despite being created to market the card game, all the other members of the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise show varying amounts of this.
** 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.

* PlayedForLaughs in ''Film/NapoleonDynamite''. A farmer shoots a cow in the head right when a bus of schoolchildren is driving by. The kids start screaming at the scene.



* In ''Literature/{{Phenomena}}'' is a small elf boy whipped again and again for having [[BornIntoSlavery escaped]] the village he works in. It's even [[http://www.gyldendal.no/Barn-og-ungdom/9-13-aar/Phenomena-4-Utfrielsen featured on a cover.]] WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids moment.

* 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.

** In WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra, Mako witnessed both his parents get burned to death when he was eight. He and his brother then had to fend for themselves on the streets, getting into more than their share of scuffles and gang violence.

* Kureha from ''Manga/AfterSchoolNightmare'' was raped at age five. This along with her [[DomesticAbuse abusive father]] are why she DoesNotLikeMen.
* Hinako from ''Manga/BitterVirgin'' was sexually abused by her step-father for several years and had two children(though one was a stillborn) by age fifteen. This is why she is a ShrinkingViolet who dislikes [[DoesNotLikeMen males]] and [[ChildHater infants]]

* One of the characters in ''Anime/DeathParade'' had a teenage sister who was beaten up and raped. He vowed revenge and [[spoiler:killed the man]]. The incident ultimately led to his death and is a major issue in his soul being judged correctly. [[spoiler:It's implied he was ultimately sent to the Void.]]



* ''{{Manga/Saiyuki}}'' has Gojyo's backstory. A product of his father's affair, he was raised by his father's wife, who abused and tormented him constantly since he was a reminder of her husband's infidelity. To protect him, his half-brother Jien took to calming her down the only way he could - [[ParentalIncest by allowing her to seduce him]], and it's shown that Gojyo could hear them in the next room over and was well aware of exactly what was happening. Eventually, the situation spiraled out of control, and she was about to kill Gojyo...so to save him, Jien cut her down with an axe right in front of his little brother's eyes.

* On top of seeing her [[DomesticAbuse mother abused by her father]], [[spoiler:Kureha]] from ''Manga/AfterSchoolNightmare'' was raped at age five while walking home from school. The trauma and her father deeming her DefiledForever caused [[DoesNotLikeMen her fear of males]].

** 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.

** Umino and Nagisa are both thirteen year old girls. When Umino said her father killed her dog and dumped his dimembered body in the mountains Nagisa didn't believe her. To prove she's not lying Umino took her up to where her dog's remains were.
** Nagisa and a classmate come to school to find all the rabbits had been brutally beaten to death and one is missing their head. The boy accuses Umino of doing it and brutally beats her up. [[spoiler:Nagisa finds the rabbits head in Umino's backpack]].
** At the end Nagisa and her older brother go into the mountains to see [[spoiler:if Nagisa's suspicions that Umino's father [[OffingTheOffspring murdered her]] is correct. Sadly it is. Her brother tried to stop her from seeing her best friends dismembered body but Nagisa ran past him.]]

His entire family was killed and it's heavily implied his mother was raped. The child is too traumatized to even speak. Sarny names him "Tyler Two" (after her own son who she is looking for) and takes him in for a while, though he's eventually given up to a family.

* ''Manga/SevenSeeds'': The way the Team Summer A candidates were raised. It certainly seems very nice at first glance, although it being a bit rough on them and fearing the fact that, if they do not retain decent results in survival skills as well as grades, they would Drop Out of the school. And since most of them have no parents and know no other place, they are scared of dropping out and being sent outside. [[spoiler: Turns out "dropped out" students end up getting mashed with animal parts into fertilizer, and Ango finds this out by swimming in a vat of blood, guts, flesh and hair.]]
** The worst part for Team Summer A was the Final Test. It started when they were 17 years old and accidents happened around the area, including people dying from carbon monoxide poisoning, someone's face and fingers getting ripped off when a bullet explodes inside the gun's barrel, a student falling a great height while climbing a mountain... and things just get even worse there, [[spoiler: Koruri sees Mayu and Hyo's corpses, their lower bodies smashed underneath rocks from a collapsed mineshaft and Ban sees multiple students vomiting up blood, suffering from severe injuries that he cannot heal for them]]. Needless to say, Team Summer A is... [[{{Understatement}} not]] [[HeroicBSOD well]] afterward.

* ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'':
** Poor Satoko. She was brutally beaten and abused by her uncle and aunt after her parents death. Suffice to say that the tropes of CheerfulChild and KillTheCutie both apply to her. Satoshi, her oldest brother, has suffered this trope too.
** Indeed all of the cast suffers this as the oldest characters are only roughly sixteen. It's a very gorey series where the protagonists kill, see others get killed, and get killed. Shion and Mion for example [[spoiler:had their nails torn off by ''their family'' as punishment]] .



* ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'': Six dead people whose stomachs are stuffed with candy? Let's have Maria see it! [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans It's okay]]. [[ResetButton Everyone will be resurrected in the Golden Land]]. [[TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior Kihihi]][[CreepyChild hihihi]][[ChildMage hihihi]].



* ''Manga/{{Pokemon}}'':
** In a {{flashback}} during the RS arc of ''Manga/PokemonAdventures'', this is all but confirmed when [[spoiler: a five year old Ruby gets his ''head slashed at by a Salamance'']]. [[spoiler: Little Sapphire]] was all but mentally scarred by seeing [[spoiler: little Ruby smiling at her with blood running down his face]].
** There's also Koya from ''Manga/PokemonDiamondAndPearlAdventure''. Up until now, he and his Growlithe had been extremely close, having been partners for a rather long time. And ''then'' Growlithe got [[CurbStompBattle violently whooped]] by a Gyarados (a Water-type Pokémon, super effective against Growlithe, and who seemed absolutely elated at its condition), so much so that it had to go to the Pokémon Center equivalent of the ER. And just to top it all off, when Growlithe finally awoke, it was so traumatized by the experience that it shrunk into a corner when Koya tried to touch it. No wonder he's a bitter half-pint in the International Police.
