** Due to his troubled past Gaara was originally this. He would murder people often despite being only twelve when introduced and when he was younger tried to [[SelfHarm cut his wrist]] to see what pain is like (he was physically unable to get hurt).

* J from ''Literature/IAmJ'' began smoking in fifth grade when he began emulating older boys. He also started getting into fights at that age, but as self-defense against bullies.

* Frank Berkman in ''The Squid and the Whale''. Twelve-year-old Frank drinks beer and -- most disturbingly -- appears to fantasize about raping his mother. It's unclear whether this behaviour is normal for him or is a response to the tension in his life at that point (his parents are separating, and all of this takes place on a day when they've accidentally abandoned him at home alone).

* Anais from ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' is a four-year-old [[ChildProdigy smart enough to be in middle school]]. As a result, she's more than capable of being {{The Chessmaster}}, easily coming up with plans to pit her other family members against each other for her own benefit. And that's not even getting into the {{Hair Trigger Temper}} she inherited from her mother, her habit of making some [[NightmareFace scary facial expressions]], and [[BodyHorror what happened]] when she [[{{Main/Yandere}} tried to befriend]] her classmate Jodie...Oh, and did we mention that she repeatedly tried to [[BitchInSheepsClothing murder her brothers]] when she was ''just a baby''?

** It's downright creepy what children do in the series, even moreso that nobody seems to care that the main basis of the story is using children as {{Child Soldiers}} at the ripe old age of 12 until one of them goes half mad like Zabuza who [[DeadlyGraduation murders the entire graduating class of his school]] BEFORE he was even old enough to enroll. [[SubvertedTrope However]] in the beginning, at least in Konoha, children genin are basically [[AlmightyJanitor public service workers]] for the village. D-Rank, which is what they get the most? It basically consists of dog walking, babysitting, weed pulling, etc. C-Rank, which they rarely get is basically escort duty to protect caravans or [=VIP=]s against bandits (which they can easily deal with without killing). B-Rank and above, which are normally reserved for Chunin and Jonin (the more experienced and older ninja), Konoha Genin aren't supposed to get. Which is why the Wave Arc mission was peculiar since it was billed as a C-Rank, but in terms of difficulty and the danger was a A-Rank. [[note]]This was explained in one of the episodes: the guy who hired them couldn't afford an A-rank mission, so he lied about the danger level.[[/note]] There is no technical minimum age for becoming Chunin or even a Jonin so theoretically a middle school aged kid could go on high level missions and invoke this trope. Shikamaru became a chunin at thirteen and Kakashi was several years younger when he did.

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' practically ''runs'' on this trope, between its use of ChildSoldiers and [[ThePowerOfHate very angry]] protagonist, Eren. His backstory involves having brutally murdered two men at the age of nine, and justifying it by pointing out that because they were murderers engaged in human trafficking, they weren't ''people'' anymore. [[spoiler: Then we learn that the people that carried out the attack on mankind in the first two episodes were a 12-year old boy, a 12-year old girl, and an 11-year old boy.]]

** The students of class 3-E. They are tasked with the mission to kill their own teacher and instead of displaying fear or hesitance, they show a great enthusiasm in planning how to kill him. Even more disturbing in that even after they've bonded with said teacher and developed affection for him, it didn't slow them down for a bit. Granted, the fact that their target is not human (he is [[spoiler:a constantly-smiling bullet-proof tentacle monster that destroyed most of the moon who has threatened to do the same to earth in a year's time should they fail to kill him]]) may be a factor in this behavior, but still, as another teacher had said, this is not normal:
