* Wonder Girl only ended up being an example of this through retcon. She was originally introduced in the ''Wonder Woman'' comic as Diana herself as a teenager, in flashback stories set during her youth. Because of her popularity, there were then a few stories written in which both versions of Diana teamed up, via time-travel or alternate universes. When the ''Teen Titans'' comic was created as a team book featuring the Kid Sidekicks of the main Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica members, the original writers assumed that Wonder Girl was an ordinary kid sidekick to Diana, and treated her as such. The attempts to sort this out and give Wonder Girl a separate identity and backstory as "Donna Troy" ended up creating one of the most notorious {{Continuity Snarl}}s in superhero comics history.

* Doc ''Black Jack's'' sidekick, nurse, and surrogate daughter Pinoko.

* Eve of Manga/BlackCat is one, but she hardly has trouble keeping up.
* Subverted in ''ChronoCrusade'' with Chrono and Rosette. Chrono looks like (and sometimes acts like) a twelve-year-old, but it's soon revealed that he's [[OlderThanTheyLook really a demon that's probably at least a century old]], making him actually Rosette's OlderSidekick. Also played somewhat straight with Azmaria, a 12-year-old apprentice in the Order who is assigned to work with Chrono and Rosette.

* Maya Fey, the main assistant in the ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'' games may or may not count, as she starts 17 but becomes 19 by ''Trials and Tribulations'', although she tends to act like a little kid sometimes. Phoenix also had Ema Skye in one case when she was 16, and ''ApolloJustice'' has Trucy, who is 15.
