* For an example made by the good guys, the main character and the rest of the [=SPARTAN-IIs=] of the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' series were trained as a warrior from the age of six and have been continually fighting since they were fourteen, but at least they were intended to survive into adulthood. The [=SPARTAN-IIIs=], however, were purposely trained to be prepubescent suicide troops: only a handful of Alpha and Beta Company survived past childhood, mostly the ones who were considered gifted enough to be transferred to more elite units. Of those who remained in Beta, only two survived, while no one who stayed in Alpha made it.

** Meanwhile, Revolver Ocelot (ADAM), called "Adamska" by his fellow Russians, as well as Big Mama (EVA). Both were trained from young ages to be Super Soldiers, as well as to blend perfectly into various nationalities. Ocelot, being half-Russian and -American, could act as a spy for either country with relative ease. EVA, meanwhile was raised by the Chinese and trained to act and speak flawlessly like a American. In TheLastDaysOfFOXHOUND, this is spoofed with Ocelot's lines: "I've been working for [The Philosophers] since I was born," and "I've been trained to be an X-Tuple agent from the age of four."

* ''Fanfic/OnceMoreWithFeeling'': When Shinji met both girls again, Rei was Gendo’s emotionless, mindless pawn and Asuka thought piloting Eva was everything she had. NERV had raised them to be an Apocalypse trigger and cannon fodder respectively.
-->Given that her pride in her piloting abilities was, when you got down to it, all that Asuka Langley Sohryu thought she ''had'', Shinji kept his peace. He had seen the nightmare that had happened when her pride was shattered and he had utterly no wish to see ''that'' door open ''ever again''…
