* ''WesternAnimation/DefendersOfTheEarth'' has pre-teen orphan Kshin (a young protege of Mandrake) who, especially in early episodes, is [[TheTeamWannabe keen to prove himself as a Defender]], but regularly gets into trouble because of his [[ChildrenAreInnocent naivety]]. He does occasionally help to save the day, though.

[[folder:RealLife]] * RealityIsUnrealistic -- The Iwakura Mission of Meiji-era Japan was a Japanese tour of the world intended to help the country modernize, so that it would be able to compete with the Western nations. Because it was a mission of modernization, almost all the passengers were adults, who were sent off to study at Western universities so they could use that knowledge to improve their own country. Yet despite this, one of the passengers was [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsuda_Umeko Tsuda Umeko]], a ''six-year-old girl''. She was dropped off in the United States and taken in by an American couple to be educated there, but the fact that she was there at all is bizarre considering the mission's purpose. (It is possible that this is the reason there are so many examples of this trope in Japanese works, but more likely than not that is just because of Japan's [[UsefulNotes/{{Kawaisa}} cultural obsession with cuteness]], which ironically [[NewerThanTheyThink did not exist in Tsuda's time]].)

Added DiffLines:
* Eto, from ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'', is a villainous example. A member of [[TheSyndicate Aogiri Tree]], she is a child Ghoul in bandages and a cute floral scarf that skips around following the leaders of the organization. She's easily ignored, and doesn't seem like much of a threat in comparison to the group's many seasoned killers. [[spoiler: This is a '''very intentional''' ploy on her part. In reality, she's OlderThanSheLooks and uses the guise of a child to avoid drawing attention to herself. She's actually the BigBad]].

* [[spoiler:Ako Shirabe/Cure Muse]] in ''SuitePrettyCure'' turns out to be this. She acted as a masked AloofAlly most of the time, but pretended to be [[spoiler:older and taller than she is]]. Despite her age, she's very smart and GenreSavvy. Of course, she's similar as strong than other Pretty Cures. She's even the first to become a Pretty Cure. However, she the only one who has not a Belltier or another rod.

** Mightor from ''Moby Dick and the Mighty Mightor'' had Little Rok (or just plain Rok), who was the younger brother of Sheera, the love interest of Mightor's alter ego Tor (like the original Fawcett CaptainMarvel the protagonist's main self was a teenager named Tor while his heroic alter ego Mightor was an adult with a deeper, rougher voice). Basically, Little Rok was an annoying little boy who was a big fan of Mightor, the guardian of their tribe, completely unaware that he was the older alter ego of his sister's friend Tor; in fact Little Rok admired Mightor so much that, whenever there was trouble, he would put on a horned mask resembling the one worn by Mightor, pick up a giant wooden toy club carved to resemble the club used by Mightor, and would fly into battle on his pet bird loudly screaming Mightor's name and boasting that he would either defeat all the bad guys by himself or that he would help Mightor defeat the bad guys (when he followed Mightor into battle that is). Sometimes he actually did help, if only by accident (such as getting in the villain's way just long enough for Mightor to thwart the villain's plan) but most of the time he was just TheLoad in the fight whom Mightor would have to rescue (and allow Little Rok to think he had beaten the threat by himself) or think up some fake "order" to get the dumb kid to stay put and stay out of his way so he could do his job.
