Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/OnceMoreWithFeeling'': After traveling to the past, Shinji looks (naturally) like a teenager. However he is rather older mentally and emotionally. Kaji notes that Shinji often seems an adult instead of a kid.

Added DiffLines:

* Lacus Clyne in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED'' inherits control over a large anti-war faction in ZAFT from her father at the tender age of 16, and immediately engages in skillful political maneuvering and alliance-building surprising pretty much everyone who saw her as [[SilkHidingSteel just another gentle pop-singer]]. While doing all that, she also somehow finds the time to play the therapist for both of the series' male leads, Kira and Athrun, and eventually brings both (and their mechs) under her banner, which serves to boost her faction's firepower considerably.

* ''Literature/{{Forbidden}}'': All the Whitely kids; most of all Lochan and Maya, but even little Willa too.

to:

* ''Literature/{{Forbidden}}'': All the Whitely kids; most of all Maya and Lochan who at the age of sixteen and Maya, but even seventeen are raising their three younger siblings together, and worrying about things most teenagers barely consider including an alcoholic mother, family finances, social services and and the age of legal guardianship. Their little sister Willa too.is an even sadder and younger example.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VisualNovel/StrawberryVinegar'', Rie has a rather advanced vocabulary for her age, and a collection of novels that overwhelm Licia because they don't have any pictures.
-->'''Rie:''' Please. I'm nine years old. I don't need pictures to keep my mind engaged.

* Faust, Æther, Alchemy, and young Prowl in ''[[FanFic/ThingsWeDontTellHumans Things We Donít Tell Humans]]''.
* The entirety of [[FanFic/HarryPotterAndTheMethodsOfRationality Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality]] revolves around the titular character, and arguably several others, being this.
* In the WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents fanfic, ''FanFic/NeverHadAFriendLikeMe'', [[OriginalCharacter Amanda]] often cleans the house while her parents are away and can prepare basic meals for herself despite only being 8. She also figures out that Timmy has Fairy Godparents after less than two days of knowing him (though to be fair, she had the advantage of actually knowing that Fairies do exist) and has the self-restraint and responsibility not to make a wish for two months when most adults immediately start recklessly making wishes as well as recognizing that magic is not a cure-all solution (pointing out that she doesn't want friends who only put up with her because she used magic). [[JerkassGenie Norm]] even [[{{Lampshade}} remarks]] that Amanda is smarter and more mature then most [[AdultsAreUseless adults]] he's met. This is something of a deconstruction however as the reason she's so responsible is because of the [[ParentalNeglect severe neglect her parents]] treat her with, meaning she had to grow up early to cope with her family life.
** Similarly, in Webcomic/KillLaKillAU, we have this with a then six-year old Ragyo, in a way, as she learned how to cook and pretty much take care of herself, and, as she's noted, that came from the fact that her mother was neglectful, making that also a deconstruction.
* Jack in ''Fanfic/CaveStoryVersusIMMeen''. Probably one of the smartest fictional characters in years, yet also one of the [[YMMV/TheWoobie saddest]] and [[FunnyAnimal funniest.]] Not to mention the most [[BadassAdorable badass and adorable.]]

* Shinji in ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'' is more intelligent -and more conniving- than your average teenager. At one point, Kaworu mentions that he was told that Shinji was wise beyond his years.
