* Kovu from ''Disney/TheLionKingIISimbasPride'' was raised by his mother to kill Simba and take over the Pridelands. As he was a sweet kid to begin with it only takes a few days for him to break his indoctrination and refuse to kill.

** Shinji himself is the ultimate example of the trope. Gendo sends him away, and when he comes back taunts him and alternates between showing some humanity and treating him like shit ''precisely'' so that Shinji will hate him and direct his feelings towards his mother Yui, [[spoiler: whose soul is inside the Eva, so that he can "synch" with her and eventually trigger Third Impact on Gendo's terms]]. Things don't go ''quite'' according to plan.
** It goes even deeper then that since Yui [[spoiler: planned to make her son into this before she even frickin knew who his father would be. It's implied she married Gendo because of his messed up and easy to mold personality so the chances would increase for their child to be an emotional wreck. She specifically wanted Shinji to witness her own death to traumatize him, and Gendo's horrible treatment of him was exactly how Yui wanted it. This was all to make Shinji a messed up, hyper-vulnerable kid that would have the best chance to trigger the EVA's unbeatable berserker mode. Which he does better then anyone]]. Seriously: The woman [[{{BlueAndOrangeMorality}} IS NOT HUMAN.]]

derail [[AncientConspiracy SEELE]]'s [[AssimilationPlot Instrumentality Project]] at the last moment, before she even frickin knew who his was going to father would be. It's implied it. The most disturbing element of her plan is easily the fact that she married Gendo because of his messed up and easy to mold personality so the chances would increase for their child to be an emotional wreck. She specifically wanted Shinji to witness her own apparent death to traumatize him, and Gendo's horrible treatment of him was exactly how Yui wanted it. This was all to make Shinji a messed up, hyper-vulnerable kid so that he would have the best chance to trigger a easier time triggering the EVA's unbeatable berserker mode.

* 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. Then there's the mysterious facility known as the "Sunlit Garden", described primarily through euphemisms as a place that takes in "special children" and provides them with a "special education". Said children grow up without any sort of formal education or normal relationships, and are essentially killing machines that start hunting Ghouls in their mid-teens. Alumni include [[CuteButPsycho Hairu Ihei]], Ching-Li Hsiao, and possibly even the legendary Kishou Arima.

* In ''Tabletopgame/BattleTech'', the Clans utilize DesignerBabies for their "Trueborn" Warrior caste, which have been bread for loyalty, quick reflexes and great eyesight. Their most triumphant examples are the Elementals, 7 foot tall users of the eponymous PoweredArmor that can rip a man in half with their bare hands. Clans raise their warriors in TheSpartanWay with live-fire training by the time they are teenagers; out of a sibko of 100 cadets, only around 20 are expected to make it to adulthood as warriors, though some survive and merely flush out as Scientists or other castes.
