* Kaminashi from ''Manga/ChoujinSensen'' turned out to be quite the delusional lunatic who believes that he brings salvation to good-natured women by [[spoiler: killing them, thus "saving" them in a world he perceives as corrupted and rotten. The fact that he still believes he's innocent is even more disturbing considering how he murdered 5 female victims (including a 3 year old girl) within half a year.]]

** Rosamia Badam from ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam'' is a Type D as well, but in different terms: she's a 17-going-to-18 year old DarkActionGirl who, outside her mecha, has the mentality and the fears of a little girl, latches innocently on whoever she sees as a ReplacementGoldfish for her dead older brother, and is unable to take care of herself in a normal environment. In her case, it's ''very'' justified: Rosamia not only is a survivor of the infamous Zeon ColonyDrop of the One Year War, which happened when she ''was'' a little girl, but was subjected to cruel experiments that messed up with her mind even more.

** ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny'' has Rosamia's even more handicapped expy, [[TheOphelia Stella Loussier]], who while [[DarkActionGirl very efficient in combat]], is a five year old outside of her mecha, sometimes screaming about how the "scary things" are coming for her, and flipping out in sobbing meltdowns at the mere mention of death. Her teammate and sort-of brother Auel Neider is only marginally saner, and while he can sort-of handle Stellar (as in, [[KnightTemplarBigBrother attacks anyone who tries to approach her]]) can be driven into a breakdown by the mention of his mother.

* Kano from ''Anime/{{Texhnolyze}}''. He's eloquent, intelligent and charismatic, but that doesn't change the fact that he sees the world as a one big playground, and himself as the only real person in it.

*** His classic "They found me!" line , which is all the more hilarious when one looks at this [[http://img211.imageshack.us/img211/4434/juanwolf2.jpg size comparison pic]], yes the circled person is one of the regular giants.

* Gates from ''Lightnovel/FullMetalPanic'' is a mysterious man [[EstablishingCharacterMoment who's first act was to get ridd of the subordinate who argued with him by kicking him out of an helicopter]]. An extremely volatile man with a ridiculous [[TriggerHappy]] attitude, Gates seens to enjoy big explosions or being cruel to people like a child likes crushing their toys with each other, but with the diference of being 40 years old and doesn't even bother hiding it one bit.

** Gyokuro Shuzen is a mix of Types C and [[CuteAndPsycho D]]. She's a powerful and beautiful vampire and the one-time matriarch of the Shuzen family... who's EvilPlan is nothing but her throwing a temper tantrum because she was insanely jealous of the fact that [[spoiler: her husband Issa loved his mistress Akasha Bloodriver more than her]]. ''Everything'' Gyokuro does throughout the series (joining [[FarEastAsianTerrorists Fairy]] [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Tale]], trying to KillAllHumans, etc.) is her way of [[spoiler:spiting the long-dead Akasha]].

** Larfleeze from ''ComicBook/GreenLantern'' has been living alone in a cave for [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld billions of years]] with everything he's ever wanted being brought to him by his mindless constructs. This has given him the temperament of a spoiled three year old. And, as seen in his Christmas Special, he ''believes in Santa Claus''.

** ''Comicbook/SwampThing'' has napalm specialist Paulie Skinner, one of the D. D. I. goons who shot the Swamp Thing with a bioelectrical pattern-jamming device and then napalmed his body in an attempt to permanently kill the group's longtime enemy. The middle-aged Skinner is shown still living with his mom in a boyishly-decorated bedroom, with his mom tucking him into bed and bringing him hot cocoa. His happy dream in that scene shows him as a five-year old (with his balding, mustached, wrinkled head on the dream's toddler body) contentedly waving a rattle on his mother's lap -- though the dream suddenly turns into a nightmare of his mother smothering him as the Swamp Thing, newly returned from space and seeking vengeance for being separated for months from his home and wife, suffocates Skinner under a massive pile of peach blossoms.

* Gideon Gordon Graves, the BigBad of the ''ComicBook/ScottPilgrim'' series, a Type C with some Type B qualities thrown in there just for fun. He's a wealthy and successful entertainment mogul, and the epitome of a VillainWithGoodPublicity. However, he seems to have the emotional intelligence of a [[ArcNumber seven year-old]]--he's petty, vindictive, possessive, can't handle rejection, and just wants people to adore him, even if he has to make them adore him against their will.

* Prince Charming in ''WesternAnimation/ShrekTheThird''. A huge MommasBoy who relied on said [[EvilMatriarch Momma]] for everything before her death in the previous movie, his entire EvilPlan is motivated by a mixture of revenge and pleasing her. Once he's taken over the throne, his first act is to make a stage adaption of himself and about how cool he is. Case in point, [[spoiler:his FamousLastWords: "Mommy?"]]

** In ''Film/BatmanReturns'', the Penguin spends a good deal of screentime wearing only a onesie-like garment stained with his own spittle and slobber. Furthermore, he rides around in a giant toy rubber-duck vehicle and amuses himself with an umbrella (among his collection of genuinely deadly ones) hung with little plastic animals reminiscent of a mobile found in a baby's crib. ("Shit! Picked the cute one!") Actually, the Penguin is more of a Type C - a quite sane and intelligent (though, again, extremely evil) man who simply has not been able to grow up because of his DaddyIssues.
** While vandalizing - and ultimately blowing up - a department store owned by the man who attempted to murder her, Catwoman takes some time out from her mischief to girlishly "skip rope" with her trademark bullwhip.

* Lila, Eddie's insane new wife in the 2007 remake of ''Film/TheHeartbreakKid''. This is best captured in her reaction when she gets a horrific sunburn and Eddie points out that she should've worn sunscreen: "Who's side are you on, mine or the ozone's? Choose one!"

* ''Film/MurderParty'': At least three of the murderous artists (Bill, Lexi and Macon) are quite immature. Especially Macon who always wants to feel that he has a powerful presence and acts over-the-top (even when its impractical to do so) to [[AttentionWhore get attention]]. The above mentioned belief about John Coffey? Well Macon embodies it perfectly, screaming like a maniac while attempting to murder Chris and [[MoodSwinger then acting sorry afterwards.]] Though not as prominent as their three friends, Paul and Sky also show shades of this trope. Sky in her [[AttentionWhore need for attention]] behaviour, childish mockery of Chris after he is kidnapped, and the fact that similarly to Bill, she was playing with a gameboy while waiting to murder someone. Despite being the most mature acting member of his group, Paul too has his moments, particularly during the extreme truth or dare scene, and [[spoiler: his particularly silly last words:]]

* Gary from ''Film/TheGamers'' films is not a villain, but he falls into this territory during his SanitySlippage at [=GenCon=] in ''Hands of Fate''. Most geeks can sympathize with the pain of becoming emotionally invested in something TooGoodToLast. But is repeatedly physically assaulting the costumed mascot of the series that you blame for your favorite show's cancellation really the behavior of a sane adult? (It's also worth noting that ''Ninja Dragon Riders'', the late, lamented series in question, appears to have been intended for the {{Shonen}} demographic. So for additional Psychopathic [=Manchild=] points, Gary's being driven to violence by his emotional overinvestment in a program intended for twelve year olds.)

* [[spoiler:Lucille Sharpe]] from ''Film/CrimsonPeak'' is a dangerous and intelligent antagonist but in some situations, especially in the climax, she behaves more like a child in a full grown woman's body. She's prone to fits of jealousy, impatient, likes to sing her childhood lullaby frequently and by the end, [[spoiler: she kills her [[BrotherSisterIncest brother and lover]] Thomas when she finds out he's genuinely in love with [[TheHero Edith]]. When she kills him, her crying isn't that dissimilar to that of a upset child]].

* ''Literature/JohnDiesAtTheEnd'' has an interesting example in that the Psychopathic Manchild is [[spoiler: Korrok, a gigantic amorphous EldritchAbomination with the mental maturity of a 13 year-old who just discovered his first batch of cuss words. People under his control tend to do things like blurt out offensive comments and do strange and depraved acts like stripping naked in the middle of the street and packing snow onto their crotch or pissing on the hood of the protagonist's car, and his idea of tormenting the protagonist is to turn on his car radio and replace all the song lyrics with racist diatribes. When Dave and John finally meet him, Dave notices that his voice sounds like a toddler's.]]

* Reach, the King of the Cranes, from the ''Skyscraper Throne'' series is a particularly extreme example. On the surface a nigh-unkillable, several hundred year old god, underneath he's a FetusTerrible, struggling to be born.

* Todd from ''Series/BreakingBad'' turns out to be a rather understated case of this trope. He appears to be at least in his mid to late 20s but acts a lot more like an awkward 14 year old. Most of the time he tries to be polite and considerate to other people but it often seems like an imitation rather than anything real. He also ends up carrying out the most shocking atrocities in the series: [[spoiler:Casually shooting a child, torturing Jesse to learn what he told the [=DEA=] and to cook meth for him, murdering Andrea to keep Jesse cooking for them, and intimidating Skyler by threatening to kill her infant Holly.]] [[LackOfEmpathy Murder seem to mean nothing to him whatsoever.]]

** Glory is a mix of Types C and [[CuteAndPsycho D]]. She's a pretty blonde girl with ''massive'' SuperStrength, SuperSpeed, and NighInvulnerability... and a SpoiledBrat who's default response to not getting her way is "throw destructive temper tantrum and murder anyone in my way." At the very end of her debut episode, after breaking the heel on one of her shoes, she starts stomping in a childish rage, which causes the ''entire building'' she's in at the time to collapse on top of her.

When Matt shows up at his workshop, he acts like he's going to punished by his parent for it so he fights back a nearly pummels Matt. In season 2 However , he has dropped this trait, which is explained in the show as Melvin no longer has Fisk pressuring him or withholding his medications.

* Many of the serial killers in ''Series/CriminalMinds'' are emotionally stunted, but special mention goes to the killer in the two part "To Hell ... And Back", [[spoiler: an emotionally and mentally retarded middle-aged man whose quadriplegic brother directed him to pick up transients so he could use them in the smarter brothers' experiments.]]
** There's also the (wo)manchild in "UncannyValley", who [[AndIMustScream paralyzes women and plays house with them]], but she's [[FreudianExcuse very sympathetic]]: [[spoiler: her psychiatrist dad repeatedly gave her shock treatments to make her forget his sexual abuse and kept her dolls as trophies, along with all his other trophies]]. Give her some [[AccidentalInnuendo real]] -- er, ''actual'' dolls and she's perfectly safe.

** Another female variant is Margaret Hallman in "I Love You, Tommy Brown" - a 40 year old woman who acts like a bratty, lovestruck teenager even as she shoots innocent people, abducts a child and molests her former student. The final showdown has her throw a tantrum at the agents, stomping and yelling at them to be quiet.

** While a tad more sympathetic than her book counterpart, Cersei Lannister from ''Series/GameOfThrones'' is still at heart a very immature person prone to cruel and petty behavior, who never really outgrew being the little girl who had a servant girl severely beaten for stealing a necklace. She has even thrown honest to goodness ''tantrums'' like a petulant child when things don't go her way. Lena Headey says that she plays Cersei as if she was a wayward 15-year old who never had any real parenting.

** Lysa Arryn had murderous tendencies whenever she threw a tantrum because things didn't go her way and did not think or act all that much like a grown woman, hiding in the Eeyrie in the hopes that the world would forget her. Her son seems to be following in her footsteps, although its hard to blame him all that much, given his childhood.

** ''Series/KamenRiderWizard'' has Phoenix, a Co-Dragon to the big bad. Before he was turned into a monster, he was a florist and described as not being able to harm anyone. As Phoenix, his violent tendancies, coupled with his CameBackStrong power, made it increasingly harder to control him, and the BigBad feared he may actually do more harm than good as he rampaged. He was finally [[HurlItIntoTheSun kicked into the sun]], only to be replaced by [[FromBadToWorse Sora/Gremlin]], who's friendly and playful nature is offset by being a ManipulativeBastard that is a bigger pain in both side's sides than Phoenix. Unlike Phoenix, however, it was revealed that Sora was a serial killer who's StartOfDarkness occurred when his girlfriend broke up with him and the reason for his unusual behavior had nothing to do with the loss of his humanity and more that he never had much to lose in this department in the first place.
** ''Series/KamenRiderGhost'': [[EvilPrince Aran]] acts like a [[EvilIsPetty jilted five years]] old when talking to Makoto through the first half of the series. Also, his debut as Kamen Rider Necrom really gave off the vibe of a rich kid showing off a new toy. Mind you, he is at least 18 by physical age and 140 by actual age. Realizing the error of the Ganma ways removed the psychopathic part and left him with only occassional bouts of harmless immaturity like complaining about minor things that humans usually takes for granted.
** ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'': [[PerpetualSmiler Parado]] gets bored extremely easily and will not stand unless properly entertained. His usual reaction to being ignored by [[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom Emu]] is pretty much the same as that of child being ignored by parents. His playful attitude does not impair his TheChessmaster qualities or alleviate the fact that his prefered game is [[DeadlyGame Kamen Rider Chronicle]], where [[AnyoneCanDie civilians]] fight [[MonsterOfTheWeek Bugsters]] to death. [[spoiler: As it turns out this is largely because he was created as six years old's ImaginaryFriend.]]

** "Charlie X," full-stop. A human child raised by omnipotent aliens and given the ability to warp reality. Though 18 years old, he has the social skills of a spoiled five year old. Having committed mass murder before being picked up by the Enterprise, he causes so much carnage upon the crew (which the aliens ultimately undo) that he is handed back to the aliens at the end of the episode.

** Another, more understated example is Rachel Duncan, the "proclone." Whenever something doesn't go her way, Rachel reacts with petty spite. Whether it's coercing Paul to have sex with her to get back at Sarah for killing her moniter/lover (even though Helena killed him), denying Cosima medical treatment in order to punish Sarah for being uncooperative, or petulantly smashing the vials of Sarah's daughter's bone marrow like a five year old breaking her sister's toys when Sarah doesn't give her important information (that she doesn't even have). Her grudge against Sarah is essentially out of pure jelously for taking away attention from her and for being the only known fertile clone.

Her grudge against Sarah is essentially out of pure jelously jealousy for taking away attention from her and for being the only known fertile clone.



* ''Series/{{Justified}}'': Coover Bennett is the classic "DumbMuscle bruiser" type. Very dim, and possessing the emotional range of an eight year old, Coover's life is built around pleasing his mother and brothers, and he throws violent tempertantrums when he can't get his way. His older brother Dickie is a slightly more mature example, who is psychologically trapped at the moment in high school when protagonist Raylan Givens broke his knee, leaving him with [[EvilCripple his trademark limp]].

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...

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.]]

*** A rather tragic {{Deconstruction}} is given in Mary "Baby-Doll" Dahl. The eponymous supervillainess is a 30 year old actress with a medical condition that causes her to look about five, despite having the emotional and intellectual maturity of her actual age. Because of this, she was never taken seriously beyond her original role in a sitcom and ended up being DrivenToMadness, throwing up her CheerfulChild stage persona as a psychological shield against her miserable existence (though it isn't perfect-she slips up and reveals her true, depressive personality on occasion). The plot is driven by her attempt to recreate the show's setting in an attempt to return to the one happy part of her life. Her emotional immaturity is a mask to help her avoid her problems with adulthood, as revealed when she crosses the DespairEventHorizon.

** Aku himself. For an ancient and powerful demonic overlord, Aku is ultimately rather petty and immature. His motivation for trying to conquer the universe is simply to have fun, all the while treating everything with a dark sense of humor. Not to mention that he easily gets bored or irritated when things aren't going his way. The Scotsman even lampshades during [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech his rant towards Aku]], while calling him a "big baby" for being a DirtyCoward towards Jack.

* A type D/E appears in ''WayOfTheSamurai 4'', at the end of the Four Samurai Lords VS Yakuza Quartet job-line. The titular Yakuza Quartet are a fearsome foursome of murderous, blood-thirsty gangsters, and through the missions leading up to your confrontation with them, you've met three of them. When you face off against them as a member of the Four Samurai Lords, however, their fourth, final, and most fearsome member finally makes an appearance... [[spoiler: It's 'Manmaru', the mentally-retarded man you've probably seen running around town now and then, holding a pinwheel and generally acting and talking like a young child.]] Only, now he's wielding a ''blood-stained'' version of the hideous, barbed sword made famous by the terrifying PsychoForHire, Kyojirou, from the second game - and merrily declaring his eagerness to 'play' with you. During the fight, he'll sound like he's having a great time, too... right up to the point where you cut him down, anyway. Oh, and since you never get a chance to find out what his deal really is, he's arguably a type F too. Considering that 4 takes place in the same town as 2, several decades later, it's not impossible that he's somehow the son of the aforementioned Kyojirou - or at least that the sword he wields actually is her old weapon.

is essentially a BrattyHalfPint in an old man's body; in body. In the episode "Mother's Day," Day", upon seeing that his AbusiveMom got Courage a teddy bear, he throws a temper tantrum and whines, "Why don't you ever get ''me'' anything?!"anything?!". He also similarly acts immature and entitled towards [[ParentingTheHusband his own wife Muriel]], displaying jealousy when she dotes on their dog Courage (whom [[ParentalSubstitute she treats like a surrogate son]]); in the episode "Ball of Revenge", after Muriel gives Eustace's favorite blanket to Courage, [[spoiler:he hires [[LegionOfDoom several past villains]] [[DisproportionateRetribution to kill Courage]]!]]
** Muriel's nephew Fred, the antagonist of "Freaky Fred", is a strange (and probably insane) barber who's obsessed with shaving other people's hair off, and is determined to do this to Courage. Played with in that Fred isn't really evil or violent, he's just a creepy weirdo.

* SHIKI from ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'' started off as a [[BrattyHalfPint mischievous]] yet [[HalfHumanHybrid unstable]] kid...then his brutal awakening of his demon blood while simultaneously the BigBad [[GrandTheftMe was taking him over from the soul outwards]], impaling his OnlyFriend [[MadmanInTheAttic and being confined]] cracked his mentality to become this. Now as an adult, he's extremely powerful, but now he's prone to violent temper tantrums, self-centered, aggressively possessive and just plain creepy.
* Ilyasviel von Einzbern from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' whose child-like attitude is slightly justified by the fact that she was orphaned at a young age and never received anything even resembling a traditional upbringing. She's pretty, cheerful, carefree and has an attachment towards Shirou...but after being [[DaddyHadAGoodReasonForAbandoningYou abandoned by her father]] and being raised as a {{Tykebomb}} ArtificialHuman with no concept of morality, she will toy with Shirou while pleasantly torturing him.
* Regina Berry of the ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'' series is a rare example of a female Type A. Regina is the teenage daughter of a circus ringmaster, who raised her without ever letting her know about the outside world. As such, she has absolutely no understanding of things like death or pain--to her, everything is a game or a lighthearted practical joke. Unfortunately, this makes her completely (though unknowingly) selfish and cruel: she does whatever she wants to do whenever she wants to do it, never bothering to consider how her actions might affect the people around her. [[spoiler: The biggest example of this is the fact that she inadvertently put one of the circus's trapeze artists into a coma by playing a prank on him, and repeatedly talks about how he's "sleeping" instead of being nearly brain-dead.]]

* Todd from ''Series/BreakingBad'' turns out to be a rather understated case of this trope. He appears to be at least in his mid to late 20s but acts a lot more like an awkward 14 year old. Most of the time he tries to be polite and considerate to other people but it often seems like an imitation rather than anything real. He also ends up carrying out the most shocking atrocities in the series: [[spoiler:Casually shooting a child, torturing Jesse to learn what he told the [=DEA=] and to cook meth for him, murdering Andrea to keep Jesse cooking for them, and intimidating Skyler by threatening to kill her infant Holly.]] [[TheSociopath Murder seem to mean nothing to him whatsoever.]]

* Some productions of [[WilliamShakespeare Shakespeare's]] ''RichardIII'' will portray the titular character as one of these--despite his ruthlessness and willingness to kill everyone who might keep him from the throne, Richard is really just an emotionally stunted man who is jealous of his more popular brothers and wants to play with their toy (the "toy" being the throne of England).

His size and strength do make this a big problem for many people who make him mad unknowingly.
