** 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.

** The younger daughter of career Assassin Johanna Smith-Rhodes actually ''gets'' the nickname "Tykebomb" from people around her, when she starts attending the Assassins' School. Miss Alice Band actually considers making Famke Smith-Rhodes-Stibbons the youngest person ''ever'' to be sent on the Vimes Run - just to rein her in a bit.

* The BigBad of ''VideoGame/Destiny2'', Dominus Ghaul, was abandoned as an infant for being an [[EvilAlbino albino]], only to be found and raised by [[NoNameGiven The Consul]] with the goal of overthrowing Emperor Calus for his humiliations at the Emperor's hands. Said Consul clearly only sees him as a weapon rather than a person, and in the end [[spoiler: Ghaul kills him when he finally admits it]]. In ''[[AllThereIntheManual The Cabal Booklet]]'', even the Emperor he overthrew seems to [[SympathyForTheDevil feel bad for him more than anything else]], even though he still wants Ghaul dead.
--> '''Calus:''' Imagine his venomous whispers - ''look at how happy they are! Look at how they revel and thrive! While we crack our hides in the filth, and pine for days of fear and gunfire''...Had the child only escaped him, had little Ghaul only crawled off the heap where he was found, so much might have been saved. How terrible the man who sees an orphan as a hollow weapon, and who loads that orphan with the munitions of his revenge. How pathetic the man who wishes only to be a fat parasite again.

[[BadassIsraeli Rivka Ben-Divorah]] is a typical example.

* Sicarius in ''EmperorsEdge'' has been groomed from birth to work as an assassin for the (now former) emperor, and managed to survive to his early 30s and extreme competence at killing people, but an utter lack of social skills.

* Some of the more [[TheDitz out-there]] Republicans suspect that UsefulNotes/BarackObama is this. He's far from the only official accused of this; odds are every public figure has at least one ConspiracyTheorist claiming they were trained from birth to fulfill some nefarious plan.
