Added DiffLines:

* Hat Kid from ''VideoGame/AHatInTime''. She's a kid, of course, but she can maintain and pilot a spaceship by herself and [[LittleMissBadass beats up plenty of bad guys while collecting her Time Pieces]]. Everything else about her, though, betrays her innocence and childishness; from her voice clips to the fact that examining the microwave has her comment how she uses it to "punish food that has been bad".

* Miles "Tails" Prower of ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' fame. Most depictions stick solely with one [[WiseBeyondTheirYears extreme]] or the [[BrattyHalfPint other]] for the most part (eg. ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'' and ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'' Tails are extremely childlike and not too bright while the games and ''SonicX'' counterparts is arguably the most sensible and soundly intelligent member of the team), but he is a rather valid example of this trope in ''Anime/SonicTheHedgehogTheMovie'', as well as in recent games in which his childish traits start to show again.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Franchise/CrashBandicoot's'' little sister, Coco, is a science wiz and noticeably more sane and intelligent than her ditzy older brother. She does often show an {{Adorkable}} or childish streak to remind us she is still of Crash's blood however.

* ''Film/{{Gifted}}'': Emotionally Mary is still seven, and her reactions to situations like [[spoiler: finding out her father had been tracked down for the custody case but still didn't want to see her]], or [[spoiler: when Frank leaves her with the foster family]] remind the audience she is still very much a child. She is also seen reacting innocently on happier occasions, such as dancing with a family at the hospital for a birth, or playing with friends in the Girl Scouts.

Added DiffLines:

* Chloe Park from ''WesternAnimation/WeBareBears'' is only a child and is already in college. However, she is not WiseBeyondHerYears and [[DitzyGenius doesn't think a lot of her actions through]], not to mention being close friends with two ManChild bears and a mature yet socially awkward one.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': Lisa Simpson, while [[WiseBeyondTheirYears Wise Beyond Her Years]] and one of the few Springfield citizens who isn't stupid, incompetent or just plain lazy, loves her Malibu Stacy doll more than anything else (except, perhaps, activism) and likes immature cartoons like "The Itchy and Scratchy Show." She also [[AllGirlsLikePonies wants a pony]] and indulges in juvenile crushes on boys named Cory who are featured in ''Non-Threatening Boys Magazine.'' On some occasions she'll happily join Bart's destructive antics (indoors bike jousting? Sure!).

* Amberley of ''TheDreamstone'' has moments of this DependingOnTheWriter, she is mature enough to hold a stable job and manages to keep her head out the clouds a lot more than Rufus and even the Dream Maker at times, but has a very childish temper which sometimes leads her to [[FearlessFool go headfirst into dangerous situations]].

* Negi of ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', a ten-year-old genius mage who often acts a fair bit older than his age, but is inexperienced with life in general and often has to have some things explained by his students (who are all several years older than he is). Sometimes his young age peeks through though. For example, when he gets his hands on a TimeMachine, his ''immediate'' thought is a desire to go [[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs see dinosaurs]], and he's crestfallen when told the Time Machine doesn't have that kind of range.
