Added DiffLines:

* For such a LongRunner, ''Manga/OnePiece'' has relatively few examples (disregarding filler arcs); the most prominent so far have been the Usopp Pirates from the Kuro arc, Aisa from Skypeia, Chimney (and Gonbe) from the CP-9 saga, and Momonosuke from the Pirate Alliance saga.

* ''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.

* 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]].)

* 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.
