* This is played with in ''Literature/JohannesCabalTheNecromancer'' and its sequels-in book one, Johannes is twenty eight, but he acts like a grumpy old man most of the time (in one portion of the novel he realizes he sounds like one too because he's trying and failing to get his anger across) and not a young adult. If his age weren't stated it would be easy to imagine him as a man of forty or more. Given Cabal's intellect he was probably always like this, but what really pushed him over the edge was when the woman he loves died when he was young (19 or so).

** Yes, despite his childish love of candy & games, his favorite pastimes are poker, chess, billiards, & shooting people in the face. Soma on the other hand is just a year away from becoming a Manchild.

* The cynical 12/13-year-old [[TheChessmaster Ciel Phantomhive]] from ''Manga/BlackButler'', who manages his family's corporation, acts as the Queen's [[PraetorianGuard "guard dog"]], and has seen some [[MyParentsAreDead incredibly]] [[HumanSacrifice messed-up]] shit.

* Anna Kushina of ''Anime/{{K}}'', particularly in season 2 after [[spoiler: she Awakens as the new Red King]]. Probably due to her [[TheEmpath empathic powers]] - if she's able to understand all sides to an argument, that gives her the experience to understand all different sorts of people enough to be truly wise, even at [[TokenMiniMoe age 11]].



* [[{{Anime/Monster}} Johan Liebert]] became a MagnificentBastard at ten years old when he made a building worth of people slaughter each other for his amusement, using nothing but force of personality.

** Nunnally seems to be in her way to become one of these in R2.

** Nunnally seems to be in her way to become one of these in R2. After the end of the series, [[spoiler: She rules Britannia, Tianzi Lihua, who's even younger than her, rules China, and Kaguya leads the UFN, with an unnamed girl around their age ruling (presumably) Europe (as seen in the Miracle Birthday OVA). So all of the world leaders are [[TokenMiniMoe cute]] examples of this]].



* Akemi Homura from ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' is a [[DarkerAndEdgier darker take]] of this trope (like everything else in the anime). She only knows better than everyone else because [[spoiler: she was forced to repeat things again and again and again, each iteration worse than the last. Having a goddamn ''alien conspiracy'' as her ArchEnemy doesn't help]].

* Every single one of the Pokedex Holders/Owners in ''Manga/PokemonAdventures''. With little exception, some more than others, but a vast majority of the characters from the first four generations act like teenagers, including IdiotHero Gold, despite the average age being ''eleven'' (and in Sapphire's case, ''ten''), with some of them even thinking of their future careers already. This is ''especially'' noticeable with [[TheSpock Blue]] (especially jarring since his game counterpart would be a BrattyHalfPint if the player also wasn't his age), [[FilleFatale Green]], [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Silver]] and [[TheOjou Platinum]], though Green and Silver have the excuse of a DarkAndTroubledPast explaining their TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior, with the only exceptions being [[MellowFellow Diamond]] and [[TheNapoleon Emerald]], but even they have their moments. Ironically in the arguable case of [[LargeHam Black]] in the fifth generation, his initial characterization actually made him act like how someone the age of previous Dex Holders ''should'' have (though even then the Dex Holders of the fifth generation save for Black had the distinction of actually having jobs).

** Negi is a {{Deconstruction}} of this trope as he literally has no idea how to be a child. Once when he was on vacation and was suposed to just have fun he tried approaching it the same way he does everything else: by carefully analyzing the situation and coming up with most efficient solution, until Asuna told him he should just relax for once.

* Chiru from ''Anime/{{Xabungle}}'' is all of 8 but consistently manages to be one of the more level-headed characters in a cast of teens and adults. This is significant, since in 1981 children in anime, if they weren't the main character or in a cast of mostly kids, were typically TheLoad or a BrattyHalfPint.

** For that matter, almost all the [[TheHero lords]] count, most being in their mid to late teens with the exception of ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Genealogy of the Holy War's]]'' Sigurd, ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Awakening's]]'' Chrom, and ''[[Videogame/FireEmblemTellius Radiant Dawn's]]'' Miciah (chronologically, anyway) and post-timeskip version of Ike (with [[VideoGame/FireEmblemFates Corrin]] having a VagueAge). However, Roy from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: The Sword Of Seals]]'' takes the cake; a political expert, commander of an army after the deceased Hector, and coolheaded GuileHero at the ripe old age of 15, the youngest age for a lord in the series to date.

** From the ''FireEmblemAkaneia'' series, [[TheHero Prince Marth]] definitely counts, especially post-''Shadow Dragon''.
* Roan from ''VideoGame/GrandiaII'' is one of these. [[spoiler:Being raised to rule a country partly explains it.]]
