* [[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.

** The same goes for Athena in ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies''. When Apollo first meets her a cop thinks she's a high school student with a fake attorney's badge and tries to arrest her for trespassing, [[CuteBruiser causing her to effortlessly throw him into Apollo out of reflex]].

* A very overdone excuse in ''VideoGame/PokemonSuperMysteryDungeon'' that keeps the main characters from getting full approval of doing ''anything'' remotely dangerous. No matter if they achieved three suicidal missions with no casualties, [[spoiler:evolved using magical trinkets all the way to their late stages]], being the only ones left for support, the adults will ''continuously'' dismiss them unless they ''are'' with an adult.

** Earlier episodes has Misty believing this about Ash, having little to no respect for the starting trainer. When he does prove himself later on, however, her attitude towards him changes.

* 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.

** 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.
