** To a degree, highschool-aged Yukime's crush on Nube counts too. She fell in love with Nube when she was 11 and he was in his very early 20s, and [[RescueRomance he saved her from being shot to death]] by a JerkAss hunter who feared [[AnIcePerson her ice powers]]. [[spoiler: She actually ''does'' get together with him, tho. [[EarnYourHappyEnding After much struggling and misfortune]].]]

* In ''Anime/GardenOfWords'' 15-year-old Takao slowly develops a crush on the mysterious (to him) 27-year-old Yukari Yukino. Although Takao wouldn't call it a crush, he is mature enough to admit it might be of that nature. This is incredibly awkward for Yukino, [[spoiler: she having been forced out of her job as a teacher at Takao's school as a result of malicious false rumours about her reciprocating a crush from a different student.]]

** Subverted with Takatsuki and Yuki. Takatsuk was awfully excited when Yuki flirts with her however it's because she was excited that [[AmbiguousGenderIdentity she was passing for a boy]]. Though Yuki was MistakenForPedophile by her boyfriend when he met Takatsuki, the two have a platonic IntergenerationalFriendship where Yuki is a CoolBigSis.

See also PuppyLove, where two little kids crush on each other, and FatherIWantToMarryMyBrother, which relies on an innocent inability to distinguish between different types of love. If ''is'' clearly sexual intrest, then it's DirtyKid.

Should anything actually ''happen'' in the relationship, see WifeHusbandry, JailBaitWait, HotForStudent, and MayDecemberRomance. See also LikesOlderWomen and {{Kidanova}}. Possible ways this crush can work out is if the [[PlotRelevantAgeUp the kid becomes older]] or [[FountainOfYouth their crush becomes their age]].

* Sasami from ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'' has occasionally expressed some interest in Tenchi (but [[ChickMagnet who hasn't?]]). Subverted by the fact she's [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld over 700…]] and then sorta played straight in that, ''by Juraian standards'', she's still considered a little girl.

* ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'': Sakura Kinomoto was like this with the teenaged Yukito (it was a Creator/{{CLAMP}} production, in case you were unaware), though they gave it a plot-related propping up towards the end and the two of them ultimately end up with other people ([[spoiler:Sakura falls for Syaoran; Yukito, for her ''brother'' [[HoYay Touya]]. Both of them are around their love interests' same ages]]). Then there's Rika Sasaki's huge crush on her adult teacher, Yoshiyuki Terada, which is a point of contention with fans since in the manga he apparently accepts and reciprocates it (though he tells her to wait until she's of age).

* In the ''Manga/SailorMoon'' anime Usagi's little brother Shingo develops a crush on Ami. This really isn't all that unreasonable given that the age difference between them is just about 4 years (Shingo's around 11, Ami is 15) exactly the same for his older sister and Mamoru, in fact the Ami/Shingo pairing isn't even all that uncommon in fan fiction. It helps that Shingo is often presented as more mature than his sister.

* Pinoko, from ''Manga/BlackJack''. Not only does she know things someone her age shouldn't, she's really the only person who can assist Black Jack in surgery, gets jealous when he pays any attention at all to other women (well, women, at least), and tends to get around just fine in areas Black Jack doesn't want her around.
** This is played with, because [[spoiler:Pinoko is actually 18 years old ''at least''. She was originally a sentient tumor (and possible parasitic twin) in the body of a teenage girl, and Black Jack extracted her from her sister's body and gave her an artificial body of her own, shaped as a little girl.

** It's worth noting that Lelouch himself is 16/17 years (although everyone assumes the masked vigilante Zero is much older under the mask), so the age difference is quite small, and both are WiseBeyondTheirYears, though Kaguya prefers to act younger than she is, most of the time. And also ''looks'' younger than she is for that matter. Nothing becomes of it, regardless.

* Played with in ''Manga/DetectiveConan'' chapters 925 through 927. Ai Haibara takes it badly when she learns her favorite athlete, Ryusuke Higo, is rumored to be dating local idol Yoko Okino. She refuses to listen to Yoko's songs anymore and even hires Kogoro, a fan Yoko's, to investigate the affair. When they all inevitably get involved in a murder case, Haibara's interaction with the pair include things like instantly agreeing to whatever Ryusuke says and ''dis''agreeing with Yoko, even if they're saying essentially the same thing. After everything is resolved, we learn the rumors are fake and Ryusuke personally thanks Haibara for her help in the case and even makes an offhand remark about putting her on his team. The final panel shows Haibara insisting on playing soccer despite stormy weather and singing Yoko's newest song. The twist that plays with the trope is that Haibara is actually an 18-year-old [[FountainOfYouth physically regressed]] to about age 6 and is typically LittleMissSnarker on top of that, yet her behavior throughout these chapters ends up matching almost exactly what one would expect of her grade-schooler appearance.
