* Before ''Monster High'', there was ''WesternAnimation/GravedaleHigh''. Undead students at the school include Frankentyke (Frankenstein's monster), Cleofatra (mummy), Vinnie Stoker (vampire as if his [[Creator/BramStoker last name]] didn't tell you), and Blanche (zombie). And that's just Mr. Schneider's class.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'' gives us an Abyssal whose Exaltation ''always'' goes to a 10-year-old girl who is then always renamed Shoat of the Mire. She is the only Abyssal servant of the Deathlord known as The Dowager of the Irreverent Vulgate in Unrent Veils, who has a [[DoomedHometown very specific]] [[OrphanageOfFear process]] of creating her deathknights. It's stated that she plans to start turning more children into Abyssal servants as soon as she's certain she's perfected the process of raising them.

** Twilight has also Jane and Alec, the youngest and smaller vampires of the series, twins turned at around age twelve by Aro Volturi. (Exact ages for what constitutes as an Immortal Child was never explicitly stated. It is assumed that if the child in question is able to follow the laws set by Volturi, then they will be allowed to continue their existence.)

On the one hand, these are ''children'', the idea that an undead horror (especially a thinking one) would not just kill but transform an [[ChildrenAreInnocent innocent]] [[TheVirus into another one of itself]] is so wrong [[MoralEventHorizon it's hard to quantify]]. That a child would stay on in this world as a ghost is no less cruel, since it implies the child is somehow being held against their will or has become a creature [[GhostlyGoals out for revenge.]] On the other, the body is still that of a child, and most people will instinctively try to help mistakenly thinking it's NotAZombie, no matter how [[UndeathlyPallor undeathly pale]] and torn. Third, even if the child still has [[TheHeartless their own mind]] and [[TranshumanTreachery morality]] (slim chance, but present) you've now essentially got a ''[[TykeBomb bloodthirsty immortal Pinocchio]]''. And last but not least, when one is attacking you, you have to work past all of the above ''and'' a natural instinct not to harm the former child. This can be made much easier if the little monster isn't just [[CreepyChild creepy]], but [[WhatMeasureIsANonCute deformed and scary]].

* The initial trailer to ''VideoGame/DeadIsland'' showed, in reverse, a family trying to escape from zombies but ending up killed by them. A little girl ends up bitten and ends up biting her father after being zombified. [[NeverTrustATrailer The characters aren't even playable in the game]], though you can find the dead bodies of the parents in the game.



* Philippine legends speak of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiyanak Tiyanak]], a monster made from the spirit of an unborn child. It takes the appearance of an infant to draw in unwary travelers then reverts to its true form to kill its kind-hearted victim.
** Tiyanaks can also be born from babies who've died without being baptized, from aborted fetuses or from babies dying without getting a proper burial.

* In ''VideoGame/TheSims3'', it's possible to have ghost baby. This occurs through either making a ghost sim playable again, or using a ghost potion on a regular sim. If one parent is a ghost, the baby has a 50% chance of being a ghost as well. This trope is subverted, however, as the ghost baby will age normally and eventually "die."
