This is seen to a much smaller degree in live-action television, where smaller actors may be chosen instead of a taller actor.

* ''Manga/DetectiveConan'' comes to mind. The title character comes up to the knees of most adults, as does most of his classmates. Particularly funny since Genta, who is around the size of an ACTUAL kid that age, looks like a giant in comparison...

* The titular character of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' is 12-14; however, he usually seems at least a foot, if not two, shorter than his father and comes up to Pearl's waist or the height of a doorknob. Connie and Peedee, the other kids who seem to be about his age, are of similar height. Onion and his friends are even shorter. In the [[WhatCouldHaveBeen original pilot]] Steven's proportions were more realistic for a kid his age. In Steven's case this is somewhat justified in that while he's 14, he's actually stuck at 8 years old, physically, but none of the other kids have such a justification, such as the 12-going-on-13 Connie.

* Goku of ''Anime/{{Dragonball}}'' is stated to be 12 at the beginning of the series, but he looks about 6. There's even a point when Bulma expresses surprise at his age, saying she thought he was the same age as her...when she was twice his height. When he fights in the World Martial Arts Tournament for the second time, he's 15, but has barely grown any taller. It's only after the ''next'' TimeSkip, when he hits 18, that he reaches his final height. In ''Manga/JacoTheGalacticPatrolman'', it is stated that Saiyans have long childhoods, staying young and cute looking, until they reached adulthood and grow to their full size.

Added DiffLines:

* The protagonist of ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' is explicitly eleven but is shorter than a typical eleven year old. It's even more pronounced with younger [=NPC=]s like Youngsters, who look 6-8 but reach your shoulder and need to be crouched down to talk with.

* The kits in ''Literature/WarriorCats'' are often presented as too small for their age. Kits that are four or five moons old aren't much bigger than three month olds. Subverted with apprentices (kits who are six months or older), who are usually bigger.
