* Another aversion from MarvelComics: One of the things that made {{Magneto}} from ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' turn into a psycho would-be world conqueror was the death by fire of his daughter Anya, who was somewhere between the ages of 2 and 5. A group of humans were attempting to beat Magneto, possibly to death, for having extorted his full pay out of a cheating boss with powers he had just manifested that day, while at the same time his daughter was screaming out the window of the second story of an inn on fire. Having just learned he ''had'' powers, he couldn't control them well enough to free himself of his attackers and save his daughter until she had burned to death, at which point he went temporarily insane and killed everyone except his wife (everyone on the street, at least, and some sources indicate possibly everyone in the city). This led his wife to run from him in terror. It is possible that the fire at the inn was arson, given the remarkable coincidence of the inn burning down at the ''same'' time as the gang attacking him.

* Sawyer in ''Literature/VoidDomain'' averts this. The necromancer has killed at least one child on-screen. [[FrankensteinsMonster Des]] raises interesting implications related to the topic. Her body-parts had to come from somewhere.

* In ''VideoGame/HometownStory'', Dexter's backstory includes the FailureToSaveMurder of a little girl. Harvey, one the kids that the PlayerCharacter befriends, later dies in an accident. Incidentally, this is a ShopKeeper SimulationGame.

Added DiffLines:

* PlayedForDrama in quite a number of Music/{{Cormorant}} songs, including children being shot or drowning themselves. Even when one of the few times where they play this trope straight, said child ends up crossing the DespairEventHorizon.
* The cover art for Music/CannibalCorpse's ''Butchered at Birth'' averts this trope big time.

* Ancient comics book example: In ''MarvelComics'' #8 (from 1940), [[{{Sub-Mariner}} Namor]], in an all-out attack on the city of New York, detonates a bomb in the Hudson Tunnel, flooding it and killing everyone inside, kills a random pilot by ripping the propeller off his plane, breaks a lot of animals out of the zoo, including many poisonous reptiles, and then saves a baby from a stampeding elephant before flying off to destroy the George Washington Bridge.
