A subtrope of KickTheDog. See also ChildHater, who hates kids but isn't necessarily physically abusive and NiceJobBreakingItHerod, which is often an extreme version. Contrast InfantImmortality and WouldntHurtAChild. Compare KidsAreCruel, ChildrenAreInnocent. Related to EatsBabies and ChildEater. Usually applies to the SadistTeacher. If a villain who is quite capable of bothering adults prefers to spend his time as an antagonist for kids or teenagers, it's fair to say PickOnSomeoneYourOwnSize.

** Scar and the hyenas. The former nearly eat Simba and Nala after they wander onto the elephant graveyards (although averted when Mufasa shows up) and Scar, who shows no qualms about putting young Simba in extreme danger to achieve his ultimate goal becoming king of the Pride Lands. First, he tricks Simba into the gorge below Pride Rock before sending with the hyenas' help a stampede of wildebeests through, forcing Simba to hang on for dear life. Mufasa is able to rescue Simba, but this results in Scar murdering the injured Mufasa by throwing him back into the stampede. Later, as a mourning Simba is exiled from the Pride Lands, Scar sends the hyenas after Simba, who would have died if not for sheer luck.

* Lothar Hex from ''Webcomic/ExterminatusNow''; apparently, he once hid in an orphanage while on the lam, [[CrossesTheLineTwice gouged out the orphans' eyes so they couldn't identify him, and shot the youngest orphan to make the rest go quiet]].

* ''Website/NotAlwaysRight'' does have the occasional asshole who might attack a child when they flip out:
** [[http://notalwaysright.com/fixing-for-a-fixing/40978 This angry homophobic thug]] takes a swipe at a ''five year old'' for kicking him in the shins in response to his harassment of an employee. This response [[LaserGuidedKarma gets him tackled and held down by several people, and then arrested for assaulting a minor]] when he tries to sic the police on ''her''.
** [[http://notalwaysright.com/the-karate-kid-christmas-special/26311 This guy]] raises his fist to a nine year old boy over a Christmas toy they're fighting for, but before he can do anything, the kid shows that he knows karate by laying the guy out and leaving him to run off humiliated.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' ''Fanfic/FacingTheFutureSeries'', it is shown there are many,''many'' villains who would definitely hurt a child.

* ''Fanfic/FalloutEquestria'':Calamity has no problems shooting children who prove themselves as bad as the raiders. Unsurprisingly, this shocks [[WouldNotHurtAChild Littlepip]] and [[NeutralGood Velvet Remedy]] the first time it happens to the point of starting a group argument over the situation.

'''Anna:''' And keep your brats quiet or I'll bring 'em down to Mexico and sell 'em! We're doin' business right now, so shut the hell up!

* Pitch Black in ''WesternAnimation/RiseOfTheGuardians'' is clearly willing to do something horrible to Jamie once he realizes that the kid is the only thing left between him and victory over the titular Guardians. It's unspecified exactly what Pitch was planning on doing, but anything he could have done (MindRape him with Nightmare Sand, flat out kill him, or turn him into a Fearling) fits this trope.

'''Important Note''': This trope is about '''adults physically hurting children''', fatally or not. '''The following are not examples''': slapping, butt-warming and general discipline from parents to their children (that's DontMakeMeTakeMyBeltOff), psychological/verbal abuse ([[AbusiveParents very common]] but [[JustForFun/IThoughtItMeant not that trope]]), abduction (only applies if the child dies or gets effectively hurt), child on child violence (that's KidsAreCruel), exploitation for profit (that is FinancialAbuse). Violence to teenagers isn't an example either since teenagers are physically [[TruthInTelevision stronger]] than children and lack the "completely defenseless" element, especially if TeensAreMonsters. However, teenagers harming children applies.
