* 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.

* In order to get accepted to a government-backed Shinobi school in ''VideoGame/SenranKagura'', you have to already be training and display a level of natural talent (family connections also help). This implies that [[GreyAndGrayMorality "Good" Shinobi]] routinely train the next generation from toddlerhood.

* Cynder, from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfSpyro'' almost fits this. Her egg was stolen by the Dark Master's forces before her birth and she was raised within his evil influence, given [[PlotRelevantAgeUp seriously souped up powers and an adult form]] and sent out to help the Drk Master take over the world. And she is a total BadAss. Interestingly, the "Fury" attacks of Spyro (and Cynder in the third game) make them elemental tykebombs.
