* 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.

** This is somewhat downplayed when you realize that
James and Lily were 21 ''only 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.

Does not relate to NeverGrewUp, because they physically did grow up - but never outgrew being attached to immature or childish things or behavior. SisterTrope (perhaps) to AdultsDressedAsChildren, although that trope is almost always played for laughs or borders on the [[UncannyValley grotesque]]. Compare {{Keet}}, OneOfTheKids, KiddieKid. For a villainous version, see PsychopathicManchild. Compare BasementDweller. Not related to ''Series/{{Manchild}}'', the British TV series, either. Compare and contrast the ThreeFacesOfAdam.

* The late Creator/MichaelJackson is often said to be one, due to his personal amusement park in his home, Neverland Ranch (whose name also connotes this trope) and from being badly abused and denied a childhood when he was young.
