* On occasion Karsa comes across as a worriyngly competent (and very big) child throwing a tantrum in ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen''. However, being only around 70 years old amongst the long-lived Teblor he's barely more than a teenager, justifying occaisonal childish behaviour somewhat. His size and strength do make this a big problem for many people who make him mad unknowingly.

* King Joffrey Baratheon of ''Series/GameOfThrones'' is slightly older than [[ASongOfIceAndFire his book counterpart]], but is highly immature due to [[RoyallyScrewedUp his upbringing.]] He constantly engages in petty cruelty and takes sadistic delight in murdering, torturing and humiliating those beneath him [[StupidEvil even when doing so would be to his detriment]], but behaves childishly towards those who stand up to him, usually resorting to screaming "''I AM THE KING''!" When his grandfather and [[NumberTwo Hand of the King]] Tywin dismisses him to his chambers for insulting Tywin, Joffrey actually responds with "''I'm not TIRED''!"

** ''Series/KamenRiderDenO'' gives us Ryutaros - what makes him worrying is that he gives the titular rider access to Gun Form; it wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for the fact that, in order to turn into Den-O Gun Form, Ryutaros has to POSSESS Ryotaro. He believes that the best way to win over the heart of Airi is not by wooing her, but rather, by murdering Yuto/Zeronos.

* N from ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'', the enigmatic 20 year old "King" of [[AnimalWrongsGroup Team Plasma]], seems to be the intelligent variant at first due to his association with the villainous AnimalWrongsGroup and childlike behavior (e.g. gleefully dragging you to the Ferris Wheel because he's never been on one before, plus his playroom, which looks like it may as well belong to someone half his age, if not younger due to the ''Pokémon'' universe being full of [[Adorably PrecociousChild Adorably Precocious Children]]). He describes abstract concepts as if they're equations and machines, refuses to reconsider his beliefs throughout the game despite all evidence to the contrary, has a noticeable arrogant and holier-than-thou streak, and secretly tracks the player around simply to satiate his curiosity and confused mind. Not to mention his Letimotif, which [[OminousMusicBoxTune sounds like a corrupted, broken music box]], adding to his creepiness. Subverted, however, in that he turns out to be a WellIntentionedExtremist [=Manchild=] with NoSocialSkills instead, and once you... [[DefeatMeansFriendship convince him]] that Pokemon aren't really as abused as he thinks, he becomes quite friendly. And then you find out [[NightmareFuel why he was that way to begin with]]... [[spoiler: In short, he was deliberately isolated and sheltered from very early childhood ever since being found by [[ManBehindTheMan Ghethis]], brainwashed to be pure and innocent so Reshiram/Zekrom would deem him worthy. His reaction after Ghethis [[MoralEventHorizon gives him a visceral verbal beatdown at the climax of the story]] is ''very'' reminiscent to that of a very young child who had been disowned and betrayed by his own parents.]]

** Another example of an intelligent variant of this trope can be seen in Team Magma Admin Courtney from the remakes of ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'', albeit shown much more in ''Omega Ruby'' due to Magma being the BigBad there. While noted to be a very talented scientist, but looks and acts pretty childishly, and is clearly not very sane. She [[GigglingVillain giggles every time she speaks even after losing]], speaks in an incredibly robotic, CreepyChild-like way with [[SayItWithHearts musical notes]] and [[VisibleSilence ellipses]] everywhere, her character model always has her head cocked creepily ever so slightly to the side, her expression is almost [[EmotionlessGirl constantly blank]] initially, and she has a strange... obsession with her boss Maxie and [[FoeYay your 12-year-old player character]] (to the extent she is pretty much completely emotionally dependent on and has a [[StalkerShrine computer file full of nothing but photos of the former taken over who knows how many years]], and is heavily implied to find the latter ''[[PaedoHunt sexually]] [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar attractive]]''). [[spoiler:To top it all off, [[VillainousBreakdown she completely dives off the deep end]] [[DragonTheirFeet after the defeat of Team Magma]] and literally ''plots to destroy the Earth'', [[{{Yandere}} purely to avenge her beloved leader]]]].

* Shadow from the ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' series is an adorable little boy. He looks up to his friend Maria, whose terminal illness he was created to cure. They reflect on what life must be like on earth. Even after her death, he shapes his life like a fairy tale, would do anything Maria asked him, and often whines pitifully about who he is and what he's there for. He also thought that the peaceful Maria would want him to avenge her by ''destroying the planet,'' is obsessed with his status as the ultimate lifeform, values human life and happiness very little unless he associates it with Maria or himself, and loves guns.
