You turn on the TV and start watching it. Apparently, some child actor is guest starring. But wait a minute. How old is his character? He says he's X, but he's acting like X minus 5. What kind of 14 year old gets real excited over a balloon? 13 year olds don't watch NickJr, hello! Lastly, why are a large amount of older teenagers buying trivial trading cards? To put it simply, that character is a Kiddie Kid.

* ''{{ComicBook/Foxtrot}}'' While he never uses the term "cooties", Jason (a 10-year-old TVGenius) is terrified of girls getting mushy with him. Occasionally lampshaded by his usual target and SitcomArchNemesis Eileen whenever he's planning a stupid prank worthy of [[ComicBook/CalvinAndHobbes Calvin.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'': 11-year old Lincoln Loud mostly acts his age, but he still has a stuffed rabbit named Bun-Bun which he cares for with an affection most kids his age have outgrown. His friend Clyde also has shades of this since he is shown to be a fan of Blarney the Dinosaur, which is meant for a much younger age demograph.

* Harold from ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' is arguably one of the most immature characters in Mr. Simmons' 4th grade class as he often cries and has been shown playing with a Barney Expy doll on multiple occasions, and yet he's four years older than the rest of his class...
* Ralph Wiggum from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' is this combined with CloudCuckooLander and AmbiguousDisorder.

* Max from ''WesternAnimation/MaxAndRuby'' is 3 and speaks in one word sentences. As a 4-year-old he speaks in complete sentences but not in fluent English. He is the only kid in his class who can't speak in fluent English.

* In ''Film/{{Jack 1996}}'' Robin Williams plays a 10 year old kid with a disorder that makes him age at 4x the rate. He however acts like he is 5.

* An Creator/AgathaChristie uses this as a plot point: a teenager who gets really excited about showing a magic trick involving hiding a diamond to win a bet ends up ''really'' losing the diamond. It turns out she's part of a gang of jewel thieves, using her OlderThanSheLooks appearance to appear truly innocent. The detective who solves the case sums it up by saying "Children aren't that childish."

[[AC:{{Anime}} and {{Manga}}]]
* The titular character from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' is a strange case. In Part 1, he is just a little bit immature, but not enough to qualify for Kiddie Kid. Thing is, all of his peers are affected by MostWritersAreAdults, so the difference in maturity by his peers qualifies him for this trope. In Part 2, he grows up and acts his age, though. The in-universe explanation is that he's acting out for attention, which may explain his lack of maturity.

* Molly from ''Comicbook/{{Runaways}}'' acts younger than her true age, intentionally, because it gets her attention, and because it makes her feel loved. Also it gets adults to underestimate her. Which is useful, because if the emphasis is on the "cute" in CuteBruiser than people aren't expecting it when the cute little girl tosses them across the block. Just ask {{Wolverine}}.
