* Mindy/Hit-Girl of ''Film/KickAss'' cusses like a sailor (from [[ClusterFBomb random F-Bombs]] to her introductory quote: "Ok you [[CountryMatters cunts]], let's see what you can do now"). Oh, and she's a '''[[LittleMissBadass trained killer]]''' who can drop a room full of other trained killers with just a couple of handguns. Her actress, Creator/ChloeMoretz, did all of her own stunts, including [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZitQGc2XV8o the Butterfly Knife display]].

Even funnier when Big Daddy himself considers Hit-Girl acting like a ''normal girl'' troubling, highlighted when he looks genuinely disturbed when she asks for a puppy for her birthday
-->'''Mindy:''' ''[laughs]'' I'm just fucking with you Daddy! Look, I'd love a Benchmade model 42 butterfly knife.

* In ''Disney/BigHero6'', Hiro [[spoiler: orders Baymax to destroy Callaghan]] after finding out [[spoiler: that he was Yokai and that he set the fire, thus being indirectly responsible for Tadashi's death]]. He doesn't even hesitate, even when [[spoiler: he has to rip out Baymax's healthcare chip]].

* Almost the entirety of the movie ''Film: 13'' is this trope including sexual precociousness, drug use, and stealing. It's also VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory, that of co-writer Nikki Reed.

Added DiffLines:

** Vera's even worse, what with the revelation that at only 10/11 years old, she set up the 9-year old Audrina's gang-rape, jealous and incensed at their father's favoring Audrina over her. She's also disturbingly promiscuous from a very young age.


Added DiffLines:

* A few of the Creator/SidneySheldon novels establish that the villainous characters were evil from day one--Eve Blackwell of ''Master Of The Game'' tries to kill her twin sister Alexandra when she's '''''five years old''''' and repeatedly tries to do so throughout their childhood, always being sure to MakeItLookLikeAnAccident. She's so promiscuous that it gets her kicked out of her exclusive boarding school and when she makes a FalseRapeAccusation​ against a teacher, the man claims it was the other way around, emphatically stating, "She's '''''not''''' a child, she's a devil."


Added DiffLines:

** That "childhood" thing isn't so certain either. When Bundy was 14, an 8-year old neighborhood girl disappeared and has never been found. Until the day he was executed, Bundy denied any involvement in her presumed murder, but many investigators believe she was his first victim, especially since he was already displaying deliquent behavior at this age+-theft, voyeurism, etc.

* In ''Film/{{Logan}}'', Laura aka X-23 racks up a kill count comparable to Logan himself and thinks nothing of stealing snacks and sunglasses from a gas station; all while looking no older than 11. [[spoiler: This is likely a result of her and other experiments from Transigen [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman not being considered human]], and the scientists finding children to be easier to experiment with.]]

Added DiffLines:

* DownplayedTrope in ''{{Takotsubo}}: The story of a superhero.'' Chinese-American Cord Cai is nineteen in the prologue, went in and out of street gangs during high school, and after his similarly-aged fiance Roland is murdered in a botched carjacking, [[BestServedCold Cord shoots the man who did it in revenge.]] In companion pieces, his uncle (and presumably his aunt) is noted to be a VERY good ParentalSubstitute who cares deeply about him--but Cord's ''actual'' parents have been in prison since he was eight. In the main story as a twenty-five-year-old, he refers to teenagers as kids and refuses to take them into his gang, while calling himself "old."

** Play horribly straight throughout the series; most preferably by King Joffrey Baratheon, who was a 'very sweet child'...until the age of about 12, when his father told him that pregnant cats had kittens in their stomachs. He mutilated the cat and awarded the fetuses to his Father. It got worse.
** By Season 4, Arya Stark has fully progressed into this. She doesn't shed a single tear when she finds out that [[spoiler: her aunt Lysa, possibly the last living relative that could protect her,]] is dead. She ''laughs''. And that's before [[spoiler: The Hound's death scene. She traveled with the guy for months, yet she silently refused to put him out of his misery, instead robbing him and leaving him to die slowly and alone]].

* 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:

** [[RoyalBrat Joffrey Baratheon]] really takes the cake. At the age of six, he cut up open a cat and to see the unborn kitten fetuses. Later on in the story, he killed peasants from his palace's boarders with his crossbow and told them to go eat their dead, had people fight to the death, tormented his younger brother, and abused Sansa Stark, all before turning fourteen.

** Ciel is an aristocrat living in VictorianLondon. At the mere age of 13 (he starts off 12, but turns 13 early in the series) he is the head of the household, runs a successful toy and confectioneries company, and is the [[DirtyBusiness "Queen's Watchdog"]] which sends him out on often very dangerous and frightening missions such as helping to catch UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper. Personality-wise, he's bitter and jaded... but his darker view on things is because of a traumatic past experience. Still, he's an ImprobableAge character. Oh, did I mention he will command his [[BattleButler awesome butler]] to kill people without a second thought? In the manga he's also seen drinking champagne with his guests, but that could be because of his status, the time period, and [[DeliberateValuesDissonance the overall culture back then]] which wouldn't have batted an eye at this.
