* An early and infamous episode of ''[[Anime/{{Pokemon}}]]'' features one such kid samurai who rudely challenges Ash to a battle as the latter nearly captured a Weedle. He definitely qualifies because of his arrogance and [[NeverMyFault refusing to accept responsible for his actions and instead pins the blame all on Ash when things go wrong for everybody]].

* ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'''s 16 year old Shinpachi has been training in kendo since youth as his father organised classes at the family dojo (which he and his sister now own). He is skilled and dedicated but initially lacks experience in fighting, which is made obvious when compared to the likes of older samurai like Gintoki (a war veteran) and the Shinsengumi (the police force). One of his first opponents lampshades this when fighting him. As the series progresses he gets involved in more fights, becomes more confident and is able to hold his own.

* In ''Manga/Brave10'', the eleven-year old [[TheStrategist Benmaru]] is introduced when he sends the Braves on a DeathCourse made up of his inventions and traps to test whether they're worthy or not. Since they're the only ones who've managed to pass, he asks to join. It turns out he's an abandoned child who has always wanted to be a samurai and even gave himself a surname to sound like one. Yukimura sees potential in him so he joins the team [[spoiler:and in the sequel really does get his wish when Yukimura adopts him as his heir, Sanada Daisuke.]]

* Lampshaded in ''BraveFencerMusashi'', where the [[DamselInDistress princess]] complains about how she should have {{summon|Magic}}ed a great hero and not a 'little turd'. Subverted in that the protagonist {{dual wield|ing}}s a {{katana|sAreJustBetter}} and a {{BFS}} with surprising competence.

* Subverted ([[DeconstructorFleet naturally]]) in ''AyakashiAyashi'', when a man who wishes to leave the family that adopted him, gives his sword to a kid, who immediately thinks this will make him a samurai. The catch? [[spoiler: The sword is alive, and is after it's true owner, who happens to be the protagonist.]]
