* 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.

** 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]]

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
