* 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.

* ''{{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.]]



* 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.

[[AC:ComicBooks]]
* 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}}.

** Mikey in WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012'' is this, especially compared to his brothers. "Journey to the Center of Mikey's Mind" shows that Mikey is a little kid in his mind and still has yet to mature, despite being a teenager, which is why he can charm Leatherhead and why he never thinks ahead and refuses to take blame (see "Mikey Gets Shellacne").

* In ''Tom's Midnight Garden'', Hatty is one of these at one point. When she falls out of a tree, her aunt remarks that she shouldn't even be climbing trees at her age. Justified as Hatty is isolated, with her only friend being a [[spoiler: time-traveling]] little boy.

to:

* In TheFilmOfTheBook ''Tom's Midnight Garden'', Tom becomes this. While the book doesn't specify any age, it's pretty clear that he's a little boy. However, in the film, he is very obviously a young teen, and the actor who plays him, Anthony Way, is fourteen at the time of filming. Consequently, Tom's games in the garden with Hatty, while age-appropriate for the little boy depicted in the book, come across as rather childish for the young teenager we see in the movie.

* Steven from ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' has a VagueAge for the first season and a half, but in "Steven's Birthday" is revealed to be turning fourteen. His MuggleBestFriend and LoveInterest (who's not even thirteen but is more mature) is shocked. Aside from the fact that he still sleeps with a teddy bear and generally acts like he's under eleven, Steven also [[OlderThanHeLooks looks quite younger]], which may or may not because [[HumanDadNonhumanMom his mother]] was TheAgeless.

Gems live on a more geologic time scale, so their physical form reflects their emotional maturity, and since Steven is half-Gem, this applies to him as well. His dad shows Connie a scrapbook showing that Steven hasn't aged since age 8.
