* 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.

** We first see Azula, aged ten, in a flashback in the first appearance, smirking with glee as her brother and father have a fight. [[spoiler: That ends with her father calling his apologetic son a disrespectful traitor before ''burning off half of his face'' for refusing to fight back.]]

[[spoiler: That ends with her father calling his apologetic son a disrespectful traitor before ''burning off half of his face'' for refusing to fight back.]]]] At age fourteen, Azula isn't much better. She constantly lies and is cruel as ever. Her introduction scene has her threatening to throw a man off a boat. In the end, [[spoiler:Azula ends up having a VillainousBreakdown during a life-or-death duel against her brother]].



** Cindy is a girl scout who plays up a [[GirlScoutsAreEvil a certain common joke]]. She sells cookies [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything as if]] she's selling drugs. Cindy is also PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy, though unlike most examples she is authentically into hip-hop, and is a counterpart to Riley (though she is less prone to profanity). Unlike Riley she actually seems more hands-on violent, such as when she beat up another girl scout or when she chased a man with a bat.

Added DiffLines:

** One episode has a seductive girl who looks like Lila. She can't be older than 9. It all turns out to be AllJustADream, though (but, as it was Arnold's dream, that [[DirtyKid might mean something]] about him).

* When in Menphis, shortly after his father left him, his mother and his brother, Richard Wright describes, in the semi-biographical ''Literature/BlackBoy'', how he begged passerby to buy alcohol in a saloon and, later, how, after his first day at school, he wrote curse words on windows. He was six.

Added DiffLines:

*''Film/Thor:Ragnarok'' subverts this: Thor tells Valkyrie and a horrified Bruce Banner about the time Loki stabbed Thor when they were both eight while Loki smiles fondly at the memory. Banner is disturbed, but Thor cannot help himself from also smiling softly at the memory, showing Thor regards this as a harmless prank.

** 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).

* 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).
