* ''Literature/ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'' has the Baudelaire orphans who are a lot more intelligent than they are given credit for, and one of them is a ''baby''. They learn [[AdultsAreUseless not to go to adults for help]] because usually adults either wrongly assume they are idiots because they children or [[AdultsAreUseless are idiots themselves]] (and often both).

* ''Fanfic/ATriangleintheStars'': This is one of the main reasons Bill often underestimates Steven and what the boy can handle. It shows signs of fading around Chapter Forty-Four, but he's still worried.

* Vista, in ''Literature/{{Worm}}'', is a thirteen-year-old superheroine on a team of older teenagers. She's ''also'' the member of the team with the most actual experience as a superhero, because she's had her powers since she was ''eleven.'' It frequently leads to her experiencing this trope.

** It's also why Wendy won't tell Steven and Connie what happened between her and Bill in Chapter Ten, for fear that it may traumatize them. [[spoiler: {{Subverted}}, for she eventually caved and finally told Connie about Weirdmageddon off-screen.]]

* In a positive example of this, the train passengers of ''Film/SpiderMan2'' are shocked, impressed, and inspired when they save the unconscious and maskless Spider Man and realize how young their city's hero actually is.
--> '''Passenger:''' He's just a kid... no older than my son...

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheBossBaby'', Tim and the Boss Baby are overlooked and get away with pretty much anything on the basis that they are both just kids and therefore not a threat. It's also likely why, at the end of the film, [[spoiler:Tim's parents have their memories erased of having adopted a baby, but Tim is given a choice and chooses to keep his memories.]]
