* Alia Atreides of ''Literature/{{Dune}}. Because her mother consumed spice and inherited GeneticMemory of the past Reverend Mothers and all of their ancestors while she's pregnant with her, Alia behaved more like an adult than a child which made the Bene Gesserit afraid of her and consider her as an "Abomination". She also killed the Baron Vladimir Harkonnen and several soldier, earning the nickname "St. Alia of the Knife".

** Curly is obviously criminally insane. In "False Alarm", he pulls the fire alarm and frames Eugene for it. Why? Because Eugene borrowed a pencil from him and when he returned it, it was covered in bite marks and sharpened down to the metal. Keep in mind, that Eugene would have been expelled had his plan succeeded. In "Curly Snaps", he, well, snaps, locks himself in the principal's office and throws basketballs at all his classmates who he thinks mistreated him for years. The other pupils react very shocked that the quiet Curly is capable of this. Why? Because he wasn't assigned the duty of "ball monitor" that wanted. And in "Ghost Bride" he dressed up as the titular killer to scare his friends because he wanted to be the one to tell the fable instead of Gerald.

** Helga is probably the horniest nine-year-old girl in the history of WesternAnimation with [[Radar/HeyArnold all the crap she threw past the radar in regards to her crush on Arnold.]] She has also written multiple volumes of poetry about him, carries around a heart-shaped locket with his photo in it, and has a [[StalkerShrine shrine]] dedicated to him. While it's PlayedForLaughs and she doesn't seem to want to harm Arnold, it is still disturbing nonetheless.

* Mikazuki Augus of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'' is a {{Child Soldier|s}} who has no qualm on gunning down his enemies and prisoners [[KilledMidSentence without letting them to finish their last words]]. Although when Kudel, one of his enemies called Mikazuki out and accused him for enjoying killing, he was outright disturbed. In a brief flashback, it was implied he was [[ChildrenForcedToKill forced to kill since his childhood]]. [[spoiler: shortly afte [[MoralityChain Biscuit's death]], he [[RevengeBeforeReason decided he'll crush whoever blocks his way]].]]

* Kanna and Saikawa's [[SchoolgirlLesbians relationship]] in ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' feels more like that of teenagers than children in elementary school at times. The best example being when they [[InterruptedIntimacy almost]] had sex during a play date. Mind you, Kanna was the one who instigated it and she's ReallySevenHundredYearsOld (though still a child by dragon standards), but Saikawa wasn't exactly adverse to the idea.

* Invoked as part of the DeliberateValuesDissonance in the ''Literature/CaiphasCain'' novels, highlighting that as relatable as the protagonists might be, the Imperium of Man is still a nasty place to live:
** Children in military schools regularly hold gun practice with ''live rounds''. That not enough for you? Their targets as they do this are ''living human beings'', criminals shipped out from the local prisons for exactly this purpose.
** A popular children's song takes the British kid's classic "Wheels on the Bus" and turns it into a grotesquely cheerful little ditty about "heretics" being gorily crushed to death under the treads of a giant tank.
** Likewise, a children's book on the many uses of promethium[[note]]a sort of futuristic super-oil[[/note]] talks about using it to create the fuel for flamethrowers, which are used to incinerate criminals and heretics of all kinds. Complete with cheerful pictures of sinners writhing in agony as their flesh sears off.

** In ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'', Gladion has shades of this; being a runaway that's implied to be not much older than the player character (which is stated to be 11 at the start of the games); portrayed as a sullen individual with piercings and black clothes as a symbol as being Guzma's enforcer for Team Skull. He is incredibly abrasive in conversation (when a Skull Grunt questions Guzma why he outranks them, Gladion more or less tells said grunt to shut up) and a perfectionist in battle. [[spoiler: This likely stems from being disowned by Lusamine as a result of not wanting to follower her example.]]

* WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic may have had this kind of behavior as bits of his DarkAndTroubledPast crop up. Examples include a mention of shooting his Ninja Turtles doll as a child in the "Top 11 Scariest Moments," an implication of being a sexual "early bloomer" in his review of ''Film/LittleMonsters,'' and a [[NightmareFuelColoringBook childhood drawing of being torn in half by his parents]] in the "Old VS. New" comparing ''Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory'' and ''Film/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory''.

* ''Series/LawAndOrder'' had episodes featuring child killers several times, but in most cases the kids went bad because of abuse, drugs, or, in one case, intentional brainwashing by a parent. The most notable -- and most chilling -- example of a child killer was Jenny Brandt from the episode "Killerz", a ten year old girl who not only intentionally murdered a six year old boy, but mutilated his body on top of it all. She would later taunt Jack McCoy about getting away with it, openly bragged that she planned on doing it again to another boy because, in her own words, "That's what boys are for," and actually had the brass balls to ''pick her next victim'' in front of McCoy, who was horrified when he realized what she was doing. The child actress who played Jenny Brandt, Hallee Hirsch, was only 12 at the time and honestly should have won an Emmy for that performance.
