* British lad-mag ''Magazine/{{Loaded}}'' was predicated on this trope and serviced the needs of Man-Children who were beginning to feel marginalised and scorned by a society and culture that no longer valued them as much. At its peak in UsefulNotes/TheNineties it had a circulation approavching half a million and spawned many imitators, including [[TransAtlanticEquivalent American equivalents]] like ''GQ'' and ''Maxim''.

* Beelzebub from ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos'' is an immature drug-fueled hedonist that would easily be the poster for a man child if he wasn't also [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy incredibly]] [[AnythingThatMoves dangerous]].

* Music/{{Buckethead}}, the stage persona of musician Brian Carroll, is generally built around being both childish and a little creepy. It's common for {{Buckethead}} to play with toys and trade them with the audience during his live performances. He'll also avoid talking or giving interviews in general, except in a few recorded ones where he uses his scary mask / puppet Herbie to "speak for him".

Although the causes might not be clear, the effects are. The Man Child, a term invented by WilliamFaulkner, is usually an adult who possesses a very childlike or childish demeanor. He's emotionally both simple and fragile; he prefers (although does not always ''need'') to have a parent figure to look after him. He usually [[WideEyedIdealist isn't very worldly]] and is typically pretty [[TheIngenue gullible]]. The Man Child's interests are usually what most people consider to be immature or childish, sometimes even in comparison to actual children.

* In ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6780275/1/The-Last-Casualties The Last Casualties]]'' Voldemort put Harry's parents into suspended animation in a pocket dimension for thirteen years instead of killing them outright. Lily called James a man child in exasperated affection when he gave Snape a "welcome back present" by turning his robe pink. Although going by canon, James and Lily were 21 when they were killed.

* Downplayed and explained in ''{{A Growing Affection}}'' by Naruto. Most evident when he's giddy at the prospect of building sand castles. At age 16. However when Ino tries to lampshade it, Naruto points out his [[AllTheOtherReindeer childhood.]] Ino immediately [[ShuttingUpNow shuts up.]]

* Wrestling/TheRock's criticism of Wrestling/JohnCena basically boiled down to The Rock seeing Cena as a giant child. Cena had a [[KidAppealCharacter counter argument]], though it didn't endear him anymore.[[/folder]]

* Music/DanielAmos's "Baby Game" (from ''Music/{{Alarma}}'') is about a female example. It's a satire of Christians who never bother to learn anything about their faith and just keep believing exactly what they did as a child.
