* Ironically enough, TheWasp from ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes''. She's small (even without her shrinking powers), brightly colored, a FragileSpeedster, and generally more childlike than her teammates. Incidentally, she's quite popular with the older fanbase and the show's EnsembleDarkHorse.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/BeybladeBurst'': Valt Aoi is a really silly, but powerful kid who's good at his favorite sport: Beyblade. He may be [[TheCutie cute]] and [[DorkKnight dorky]], but his pride is the reason why kids love him and the anime.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/FutureCardBuddyfight'': Our own Mighty Sun Fighter, Gao Mikado, is a very incredible kid. He's a twelve-years-old kid who good at kung-fu and more importantly Budddyfight.

* ComicBook/SuperSons stars the sons of Superman and Batman: Jon Kent "Superboy" and Damian Wayne "Robin". Jon is a {{Subversion}} of the Weak but Lovable variety; he's super strong like his father, his genes make his powers, namely invulnerability, inconsistent so he's usually cautious in combat. Damian is more of a straight TeenGenius, but more emphasis is put on his immaturity and arrogance.

* The comic series ''ComicBook/{{Saga}}'' is a series that is not for kids, but Ghus, who is a harp seal like alien, looks a lot like a character that would appeal to kids due to his appearance, his kind personality, his yellow overalls, and the fact that he doesn't use profanity unlike the rest of the characters

As well as that, the Kid Appeal Character is all too often portrayed as seeing TheHero and/or TheLeader of the Good Guys as his Father Figure. If the Leader is also quite young, chances are he'll see him as his Big Brother. In the same regard, he may look at TheLancer as being his uncle. If a color is associated with the character, then that color would be, if not yellow (if the character is female, she'll almost certainly be [[PinkProductPloy pink]]), then frequently brightly colored at any rate.

See also TagalongKid, BrattyHalfPint, KidSidekick, PluckyComicRelief. The BumblingSidekick and GratuitousAnimalSidekick are two common ways of appealing to kids. Compare CousinOliver or SpinOffBabies. ParentalBonus is the inverse.

* Tails from ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' is probably the first Kid Appeal character {{Sega}} made, featuring in just about every cartoon as Sonic's best friend. Later games feature him as the smart one, but he's always been perfectly capable of keeping up with Sonic (meanwhile, both of the animated series made him into more a weak but lovable sort, with the [=SatAM=] version [[AdaptationalWimp turning him into]] [[DistressedDude a nigh-useless prop for Sonic to rescue]]).

* Ryuto, Kagamine Rin, and Kagamine Len are this for {{Vocaloid}}. Ryuto is based on a popular kids character with a silly voice and has the youngest official age of any Vocaloid released. The Kagamine duo are the youngest of the Crypton Vocaloids, have youthful, cutesy voices, give energetic performances in official concerts, and even have the yellow color scheme.
