* This trope is a more or less constant worry for Ma-Ti of ''CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers''. True, except for Gi they're all "kids", but Ma-Ti has the added disadvantage of just being ''twelve'' (aside of, well, the WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway deal).

** An anime only episode plays with the trope when a culprit recognizes that Ai Haibara, also a shrunken teenager like Shinichi, is more intelligent and mature than the average seven-year-old. The culprit tries to take advantage of this by kidnapping her and setting up a situation where Ai's observations when speaking to police later will help the culprit's alibi. It works until Conan is able to see through the deception.

* In almost all episodes of ''Anime/DetectiveConan''. Not very surprising given that the main protagonist is an adolescent great detective and case/death magnet with a body like that of a 8 year old.



* 17-year-old turned 7-year-old Shinichi Kudo in ''Manga/DetectiveConan'' finds this a serious problem as no-one will take his deductions seriously. Then again, he still makes the best of the situation by constantly exploiting his ability to be underestimated by the culprits.
** He's not immune to the trope in his teenage body either. In a recent chapter, police detective Satou confidently told her partner that the two "high school detectives" would get stuck and come running back to the police. She was immediately struck speechless when they arrived to announce that they had whittled down 50 cars to just three suspects.

Added DiffLines:

** Much of what Arya has done was allowed because very few people suspect a 9-10 year old, and a girl at that, to be capable of casually slitting throats and praying religiously for the deaths of those who had wronged her.

* The main characters of ''Literature/WingsOfFire'' often get treated patronizingly and told this due to being just dragonets.

** ''[[Anime/DigimonTamers Tamers]]'' wasn't the only season to have a JustAKid situation. Iori/Cody got this treatment from his older teammates, two of whom (T.K./Takeru and Kari/Hikari) conveniently forgot that Iori/Cody is two full years older than they were during their first adventure with the Digimon (at least that's the age gap in the American version. Correct me if that isn't universal).

* Used frequently in the ''{{Pokemon}}'' games. Every evil "team" has at least one member that says some variation of this, despite the fact that physical age has no effect on battles. Even Team Rocket continues to do this in the second generation games, which is surprising, considering that it was a kid who caused them to disband three years before.

* [[KidHero Ezra Bridger]] from ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'' gets this from time to time, most notably in "Stealth Strike," when he's underestimated by both Commander Sato and Admiral Titus. ([[DangerouslyGenreSavvy Agent Kallus]], on the other hand, warns Titus not to underestimate Ezra, [[CassandraTruth but his warnings go unheeded]].) Ezra proves himself by escaping capture and helping to rescue Sato.

* In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'', when the Tekaddan aboarded the [[RuthlessModernPirates Brewers]] ship and encountered with the ChildSoldier, one of the Tekkadan members dismissed that they're just children and calmed them. It backfired miserably and resulted in many of his allies' death, the said person was still plagued by the guilt over his allies' deaths because of his careless acts.
