* ''Webcomic/CharbyTheVampirate'' is full of characters willing to murder, torture or eat children, it's how so much of the cast became undead children in the first place though special mention goes to Charby's sire who prefers to eat children over other humans and likes to MindRape his victims before drinking their blood and leaving them to die slowly.

* [[VideoGame/{{Overwatch}} Reaper]], in the Overwatch fanfic ''[[FanFic/BreakMyHeartBreakYourHeart Break My Heart, Break Your Heart]]'', in keeping with his [[NightmareFuel far scarier]] [[BloodierAndGorier and way more violent]] portrayal. [[spoiler:After murdering a former Talon agent and his wife in front of their two children, he takes the kids and indoctrinates them into Talon so that they essentially serve as his slaves.]]

** Solomon seems willing to do this to a baby that two women both want custody over, but it was really a test to see which woman truly cared about the baby. One woman was fine with the "cut the baby in half" thing while the other was horrified by the suggestion.

'''Important Note''': This trope is about '''adults physically hurting children''', fatally or not. '''The following are not examples''': slapping, spanking and general "discipline"[[note]] Note that this is very much a case of cultural / historical values dissonance - in older works or the American media parents hitting their children may be meant as acceptable disciplining, whereas in much of Europe, ''any and all'' violence against children has been outlawed over the past few decades, so even parental slaps are always meant to be seen as child abuse in recent European media, especially in works from the Nordic or German-speaking countries, where it's been illegal for a generation or more. [[/note]] 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 by the parents if they aren't hurt (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.

* ''Fanfic/MortalKombatDesperation'': [[BigBad Raiden]] crosses the line when he mass-electrocutes the Lin Kuei, especially Sub-Zero and Frost, to a near-comatose state while killing off half of the clan - the worst part is that many of the dead or injured Lin Kuei were in ''their early teens''.
** And when he orders the destruction of Li Mei's village, Elder Gods know how many innocent men, women and children were slaughtered in their sleep.

* In season 9 of the ''Podcast/RedPandaAdventures'', recurring villainess Professor Zombie becomes consumed with RevengeBeforeReason and goes from standard crime to concocting plots to cause as much carnage as possible. In one episode, she creates Frost, a drug based on her zombification formula and consistently described as being made for kids. In the following episode, she plans to use her zombie gas on a crowd watching a parade. She's ecstatic to learn that the Red Panda's efforts to combat her have inoculated a fifth of the city's population against her formula, because most of those vaccinations were children who would not be turned into zombies by her latest plan while their parents ''would''.

In Western works, this trope is rare and almost always done off-panel when played straight (read: when the violence towards the child isn't being [[BigDamnHeroes stopped in the nick of time]] and causes actual damage). In Japanese fiction, child brutality is more common.

In Western works, this trope is rare and almost always done off-panel when played straight (read: when the violence towards the child isn't being [[BigDamnHeroes stopped in the nick of time]] and causes actual damage). damage) largely due to [[ThinkOfTheCensors broadcast standards]]; it's a little more common in literature but still not very much so. In Japanese fiction, child brutality is can be more common.
common but is often framed in a very specific way (again, to conform to ''their'' [=S&P=]) and has actually faded somewhat in the new millenium over content concerns.
