* Rei and Asuka in ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfAnElderGod'' were raised by NERV since they were little kids to be the organization’s tools because they were the only ones capable of piloting Evangelions without mutating, going insane or dying. Asuka grew into a relatively normal teenager, but Rei was extremely creepy and unable to lead a normal life.

* In ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'', Gendo and NERV needed obedient and clueless puppets to fight the Angel War and serve as cannon fodder, so they raised Rei and Asuka for several years. When Shinji met both girls, Rei behaved like an emotionless robot and Asuka was an angry, sad, broken child on the verge of collapsing.

** ''Also'' important with regard to Kylo Ren, whose mother, Leia Organa, clearly stated that Snoke had been messing with his mind since "the beginning", which could be an allusion to his ''birth'', because he was born with a very strong connection to the Force and Snoke was able to manipulate him through that ability. It's also stated that Snoke ''still'' messes up with Kylo's head, so he has most probably been doing exactly that for at the very least 20 years.

* Common in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' galaxy, like the Jedi Order, the ''good guys.'' Also included are Darth Maul, selected and trained from the time he could walk, the Grand Army of the Republic, technically about 10 when they're sent out to fight due to their 2x speed growth rate, and [[VideoGame/TheForceUnleashed Galen Marek]], anyone?

** ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'' reveals that [[spoiler: the leader of Team Plasma, N, is this. It turns out that his father is Ghetsis, his [[TheDragon Dragon]]. He had isolated N and left him with abused Pokemon, causing N to believe that [[WellIntentionedExtremist Pokemon and humans should be separated so humans could no longer harm Pokemon]]. Ghetsis did this so N would summon Reshiram/Zekrom and Ghetsis could [[UnwittingPawn use him]] to [[ItsAllAboutMe take over Unova and be the only one allowed to actually use Pokemon]].]]

* The Space Marines of ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' are chosen for initiation prior to adolescence. While that is plenty of time for them to be used to other opinions, they train and fight for decades before becoming a versatile Tactical Marine, leaving a likely similar effect. They'll have been experienced killers long before being chosen for initiation anyway.

*** SubvertedTrope by Catachans - they are not trained to be soldiers at a young age (indeed, Catachans are known for being atypically independent compared to other Guardsmen), they instead just have to actually survive their ludicrously lethal planet before they get recruited into the Imperial Guard at adult age.

* ''Fanfic/AdviceAndTrust'':
** When Shinji and Asuka start spending time with Rei, they realize many alarming facts about her which explain her weirdness: she doesn't remember her mother, she was taken in and raised by Gendo, she's no friends or live outside of NERV, she's being forced to take drugs which keep her unemotional and submissive, she's been instructed to be completely and unwaveringly loyal to Commander Ikari, obeying his orders to the letter and without hesitation, she would kill herself if she was ordered to do so... They are so horrified that they help her to cut her puppet strings.
--->'''Rei:''' “I thought you disliked me, because I was a ‘doll’.”\\
'''Asuka:''' “Well… yeah. I did. But it’s a lot harder to blame you for acting that way now that I know you’re drugged like this. That’s why I reacted so strongly… my step-mother tried something like that with pills when I was younger. I know what it’s like. It’s not like I think you would kill yourself or something just because Commander Ikari ordered you to or such.”\\
'''Rei:''' “If I was ordered to do so, I would.”\\
'''Asuka:''' “What?! Are you crazy? Why?”\\
'''Rei:''' “He has raised me for years. He cares for me. If he gave that order, I would trust he had a necessary reason for it… He is all I have.”
** Asuka gets even angrier when she realizes that NERV tried to do the exact same thing to her, raising her since she was three to be a good, obedient little soldier.

** Most of the Imperium's special forces and operatives: Commissars, Assassins, Arbites and Sisters of Battle, etc., are the orphaned children of Imperial officials raised in boarding schools called the Schola Progenium. There they are indoctrinated to be fanatically loyal and trained to be the most deadly and merciless enforcers of Imperial will from an early age.

* In ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'', it is mentioned that many children orphaned in Ghoul attacks are taken in by [[TheHunter CCG]] and trained to become future Investigators. {{Deuteragonist}} Amon is one such child, as are [[PsychopathicManchild Juuzou]] and the twins, [[CreepyTwins Kuro and Shiro]]. They spend their teens in training, but are not allowed to actually begin working until adulthood. [[TheAce Arima]] may also have been one, as the SpinOff ''Jack'' shows that he was already an Investigator hunting Ghouls while a high school student.

Said children grow up without any sort of formal education or normal relationships, and are essentially killing machines that start hunting Ghouls while a high school student.in their mid-teens. Alumni include [[CuteButPsycho Hairu Ihei]], Ching-Li Hsiao, and possibly even the legendary Kishou Arima.

* {{Anti Hero}}ic example in ''HadesProjectZeorymer''. The OVA ''begins'' with the protagonist finding out that his parents were paid by the government to raise him. There's a bit of FridgeHorror later on as he notes that he's their ''eldest'' child, heavily implying that he had younger siblings '''that would never see him again.'''
