* ''Franchise/{{Ben 10}}'':
** Kevin 11 in the Original Series tried to cause a subway accident that would result of tons of dead just so he could pick money from their corpses, attempted revenge on bullies using [[PlayingWithFire pyrokinetic powers]] and later went on a crime spree across America where he tried to stab people with diamond blades while [[SlasherSmile grinning maniacally]]. Any of these actions would be disturbing of its own already for an adult character, and Kevin was ''11 years old'' when he did them.

** While this trope isn't to the extent of his ''Manga/PokemonAdventures'' counterpart, TheRival [[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Silver]]'s obsession with strength and violent, cruel behavior can be kind of disturbing when you remember he probably is no older than the protagonist, I.e. an 11 to 12-year-old boy. Especially when contrasted with the bratty rival Blue in [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue the previous generation]].
** [[PokemonDiamondAndPearl Cyrus]] apparently displayed this at a young age... Probably was a warning sign of what he was [[OmnicidalManiac going to become]].

* ''{{Franchise/Pokemon}}'' is a franchise which often sees preteen children saving the world, so it's a given this pops up here and there:

* Do we even need to explain everything about Stewie Griffin from ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''? A toddler who goes on rampages to beats up and even kill many adults. Let that sink in.

** Even more so with Lola who, at ''six years old'', has become known for her violent temper tantrums to the point where even her older siblings make it a point not to ''ever'' mess with her. Worse still, her idea of a perfect day involves ''world domination''. That said, it's better for everyone that she never be given cause to become angry with them.
* Mandy from ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' who's face is kept at a permanent, perpetual glare and is not above physically and emotionally tormenting her own friends if it serves her purpose. So rarely does she smile that the one time she did, ''it ripped apart reality as we know it'', and when one time forced to save humanity from impending darkness, she only did it because ''she vowed she would be the one to do it first''.
* Vicky the Evil Babysitter from ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents''; an out and out sadist who enjoys tormenting children for money; easily a poster child for the WouldHurtAChild trope.

The FilleFatale is considered this less than is plausible, since sexual precociousness is often a sign of sexual abuse.

* In the Creator/JudyBlume children's novel ''Then Again Maybe I Won't'', main character Tony, his rich next door friend Joel and his old friend from the inner city, Frankie, are hanging out in Joel's basement when Joel jimmies into his father's liquor cabinet. The three boys get drunk. It was the first time Tony and Frankie had done this, but Joel had been drinking enough that he knew well the differences between the various kinds of alcohol.

* Octavian in ''Series/{{Rome}}'', though DeliberateValuesDissonance is also involved. He goes with veteran legionnaire Titus Pullo to kidnap and interrogate a man they suspect of adultery. Octavian calmly gives him a choice: hours of ColdBloodedTorture, or confession and a quick death. When Pullo admits that he's not a TortureTechnician, Octavian advises him to start by cutting off the man's thumbs.
-->'''Pullo:''' Juno's cunt, but you're salty. And I was worried about bringing ''you''.

* The title character of ''Film/EvesBayou'' runs on this. She curses, tries to kill her father, Loui, and sneakily reveals her father's affair to his lover's husband, which eventually leads to Louis' death. The fact that she's named "[[Literature/BookOfGenesis Eve]]" and has [[WorldOfSymbolism repeated associations with apples and snakes]] is just icing on the cake.
