** A couple of instances in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Binding Blade]]''. A few characters privately express doubts about TheHero Roy, since he's only fifteen and wound up commanding a RagtagBunchOfMisfits because of his father's illness and his allies' treachery, but their doubts are soon assuaged. Lugh, a ChildMage, also gets this from a few characters since he's younger than Roy and (unlike his twin or adopted brother) doesn't have a cranky attitude to make up for his youth.

* ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited'': Spoofed when Flash laments the rest of the League's reluctance to take him seriously... while playing Rock'em Sock'em Robots. It's also played straight in the season finale when Flash answers [[FanNickname Luthorac's/Brainthor's]] taunt of "Are you going to fight me, ''boy?''" by [[LetsGetDangerous deciding to get dangerous for once.]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Epically.]]

* Daisaku gets this a lot at the beginning of ''GiantRobo: The Day the Earth Stood Still'', especially from Tetsuoko, who is jealous of Daisaku's mature manner (for a kid) but also of the close bond he shares with Ginrei.

* Often PlayedForDrama throughout the seasons of ''VideoGame/TheWalkingDead'' when it comes to Clementine. In Season 1, Lee starts off taking the opportunity to protect her ([[VideoGameCrueltyPotential at the player's discretion, anyway]]), feeling it's his duty as an adult and as her [[PapaWolf surrogate father]], but Chuck tells him that this ideal just won't work in a post-apocalyptic society, and Clementine ''will'' die if she isn't ever taught to defend herself properly. So he does, and it ends up coming in very handy shortly afterwards, [[spoiler:especially when Lee himself is bitten and doomed to either die or zombify]]. Come Season 2, Clem often shocks the people around her at just how level-headed she is for a girl of only eleven years of age, to the point that she's often thrust to the fore of a situation.

* Iris from ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' has a rather...odd...habit: calling [[TheHero Ash]] a kid whenever he says something she doesn't like or does something not smart. In fact, she does it often in plenty of episodes...even though ''she's'' a kid herself!

* In ''{{Dissidia}} 012 Duodecim Final Fantasy'', [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII Vaan]] thinks that the Onion Knight is way too young to be fighting with the rest of them, and elects to be his [[BigBrotherInstinct "older brother"]]. This mainly consists of him trying to get Onion Knight to take it easy at every term which ''really'' ticks off the Onion Knight, who's surprisingly mature and strong for his age.

Common theme running through initial seasons of shows featuring a KidHero. The young hero meets a series of [[NotNowKiddo dismissive]] characters who assume ineptness because (wait for it) -- "You're just a kid." The dismissive characters can be good or bad, but will meet their comeuppance by the end of the episode (or the season, if it's a multi-episode arc).
