* Jessica in ''Literature/{{Mavericks}}'' was raised by her [[PrivateMilitaryContractors mercenary]] [[ArcVillain mother]] to be a solider from the day she could hold a gun. Just in her first few appearances, she beats up an armed gangbanger, several mercs and half a dozen prison inmates before she even becomes a [[SuperTeam Maverick]].

* ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}'s OppositeSexClone ComicBook/{{X 23}} is practically the tykebomb poster child. She deconstructs the Child Assassin archetype by showing just how much such an upbringing would actually mess up a young child literally raised to be a HumanWeapon: She suffers severe, bordering on suicidal depression, and struggles to interact with others in normal social situations. She's ''so'' conditioned to following orders that when Logan kicks her off X-Force to prevent her from being damaged further, she ''breaks down in tears'' because she's mentally and emotionally incapable of making her own decisions.

** Sanji [[spoiler:and his older/younger siblings were genetically enhanced by their father Judge to turn them into {{Super Soldier}}s, able to lead the armies of the Germa 66 to their greatest victories. However, even after his TrainingFromHell, Sanji failed and his quadruplet brothers in particular were modified in utero to be born without empathy. Sanji's mother, Sora, tried to reverse this with a genetic drug that only saved Sanji at the cost of herself, which resulted in Sanji failing to make any progress, as he somehow remained a regular human being even after his alterations. thanks to the drug. Because of that, he was disowned and abused. His siblings, on the other hand, were stark successes.successes, but only Sanji's sister, Reiju, has enough empathy to comprehend her family's depraved actions, [[TheseHandsHaveKilled and hates herself for it]].]]

** Shinji himself can be seen the ultimate example of the trope. [[spoiler:His mother, Yui, is heavily implied to have plan to set up her child to be the ultimate UnwittingPawn, meant to derail [[AncientConspiracy SEELE]]'s [[AssimilationPlot Instrumentality Project]] at the last moment, before she even knew who was going to father it. The most disturbing element of her plan is easily the fact that she specifically wanted Shinji to witness her own apparent death to traumatize him, so that he would have a easier time triggering the EVA's unbeatable berserker mode, and eventually survive all the way to the date of SEELE attempting to pull off the Instrumentality Project, so Shinji would ultimately be the one who made the decision of what to do with Instrumentality.]]

** It turns out that the only shifters who ''aren't'' this are [[spoiler:Eren, Ymir and maybe the Warhammer Titan. The other shifters are all ChildSoldiers trained by the Marley military with the sole purpose of inheriting one of the powers of the Nine Titans. Shifters have a time limit of 13 years, after which they die. If the powers aren't transferred to another person before this, a random Eldian baby gets them. Children between the ages of 5 and 7 can apply, and the strongest inherit whichever powers are up for grabs. This is how the above-mentioned Annie, Reiner and Bertolt came to get their powers, along with the Beast Titan Zeke and the Cart Titan Pieck. The Jaw Titan was originally possessed by Marcel, who obtained it through the military programme, but he was eaten by Ymir, who eventually ended up "returning" the Jaw Titan to Marcel's brother Porco. The next batch of children are currently in the process of training, as time is running out for the current Marley-controlled shifters. [[note]]Marley control the Armored, Beast, Cart and Jaw Titans. They used to own the Colossal and Female Titans, but those are currently on Paradis Island with the main characters. The Warhammer Titan is controlled by the Tybur family, who reside within the Kingdom of Marley, but the military doesn't appear to have direct control. The Attack Titan's (Eren's Titan) allegiance isn't exactly known, and the Founding Titan has always resided within the Reiss family, who live on Paradis.[[/note]]]]

* Inspired by a true story, ''Film/MeganLeavey'' has a scene that takes place on her first day deployed at a checkpoint in Iraq. She tells a young boy her dog's name and is quickly reprimanded for it. She is warned that [[TruthInTelevision insurgents use children]], and if the child knows the dog name it could call the dog to it and attach an explosive.

** Furthermore, Ender was BORN solely with this in mind. He's a "Third", the third born child in a civilization which utilizes a strictly enforced cap of two children per family. Authorized by the military in the hopes that a third child from his parents would combine his brother's ruthlessness and his sister's intelligence, while leaving out the uncontrollability of his brother and the compassion of his sister. It worked.

** Ryak, Teal'c's son, was brainwashed into a tyke bomb at one point by Apophis to take out the SGC. Two missing teeth were replaced with fragile fakes which contained inert ingredients that when mixed by biting hard enough to break the teeth, would create a lethal gas.

* The [[SecretPolice Securitate]] in Ceaușescu's [[NightmareFuel Romania]] was feared for a reason. A good deal of them hailed from the infamous orphanages of the country that were constantly fed anew due to severe restrictions in reproductive rights ([[BabyFactory Abortion was outlawed and each woman was expected to bear four to five children]]) that were supposed [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything to boost the population]]. They were supposed to essentially become the presidential guard. After [[HoleInFlag revolution]] [[TropeCodifier in Romania]] got Ceaușescu couped and eventually executed, the regular Romanian [[HeelFaceTurn armed forces]] still had to cope with fighting exactly these poor souls to whom Ceaușescu's death meant the end of the world as they knew it.
