* Italian mob boss Fanciullo Cattivo of the ''Franchise/{{Shadowchasers}}'' franchise has this as one of the most important rules for anyone working for him, and has put out large bounties on the heads of known human traffickers who target children. ''FanFic/ShadowchasersConspiracy'' suggests he may have sworn an oath in the past to protect children.

* The ''Anime/SonicX'' dub (like many of FourKids dub jobs) is famous for the editing out of at least three instances of violence inflicted upon children. The first instance being that of Maria (who not only had an immune disorder in the original, but was shot and killed by a gun soldier who showed considerable angst about it for ''decades'' afterwards- while in the dub she was merely "taken away"). This was closely followed by Christopher Thorndyke in a rather infamous scene which was cut apart repeatedly to edit out the fact that Shadow was throwing-and-smashing-him-into-walls (this resulting in the kid apparently passing out for no reason much to the confusion of a seven year old audience), and finally with the death of a teenaged revolutionary making a suicide run into the Metarex fleet (this time Fourkids actually edited out a gravestone in one image).
** FourKids starts to get the hint after a while, but Chris still gets ''another'' instance of this in the final series whereas Metarex slashes him during an escape attempt. The single drop of blood was cut in order to further the illusion that he'd been knocked out - not stabbed.

Oddly enough, it's also TruthInTelevision as many gangs, such as the Mexican Mafia, brutally murder their members that hurt children. This even extends to prison, where inmates, or even prison-based gangs, that welcome robbers and murderers into their fold will not tolerate someone who hurts a kid. In fact, killing one of these people often results in being well liked by the other inmates.

inmates (people imprisoned for child molestation are often put into solitary confinement, not as punishment, but ''for their own protection'', due to a combination of this trope and RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry'': One of the soldiers Rei encounters during the invasion of the [[HomeBase Geofront]] specifically chose perimeter patrols because he thought he wouldn't encounter and have to kill one of the teenaged pilots. [[spoiler:Aki, being included in the kill order due to simply being near Rei, ups the ante.]] He repeatedly refuses to shoot her, even after being threatened to be court-martialed by his superior, and when the latter decides to do it himself, he finally opens fire... on him. He unfortunately isn't fast enough to eliminate his remaining squad mate before suffering the same fate.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/FateParallelFantasia'', while False Caster is battling True Berserker, she gets a shot at killing Ilyasviel and thus winning the battle; but ultimately, she can't bring herself to harm a child.

** In "Ring of Fired", this also applies to Saxton Hale, although he's okay with ordering his employees to hurt children in his stead. Unfortunately, they won't, [[spoiler:even if the fate of Mann Co. hangs in the balance. Grey Mann uses this against him to wrest control of Mann Co. from him.]]

Grey Mann uses this against him to wrest control of Mann Co. from him.]]]] In his case, it's more out of the fact that children cannot put up a proper fight rather than any moral compunctions.

* A hilarious example happens in ''Raiders of the Lost Ark''. Franchise/IndianaJones is in a local hash bar, he was inches away from killing Belloq at the cost of his own life when armed Arab Mercenaries have their rifles pointed at him. What stopped them from firing was when Sallah's kids entered the bar to shield him while taking him out. They found it amusing and spared his life.

* ''Literature/TheSecretGarden'': While Maggie Smith's Medlock certainly threatens to box Mary's ears, she never actually strikes her. She slaps Martha, but she's old enough to not be considered a child.

* ThePunisher: Played straight with Frank, ''but it depends on the situation.'' He'd never hurt a child and always plans his attacks very carefully so that no innocents are harmed. Once, when he thought he was responsible for the death of a small child, he had a gun to his head and was ready to pull the trigger when he saw evidence that convinced him that he could not possibly have done it. Another time, he had a clear shot at a teenage hood who had just won parole from juvenile hall, but upon seeing him do something charitable (confirming what the parole officer had told the judge) he changed his mind and let him live. ''However'', if you're a gang banger or a child soldier and you start shooting at him, his reflexes are going to take over and he's not going to ask for your ID before returning fire. He won't lose any sleep over it afterwards, either.

* [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Korgan Bloodaxe]] from ''VideoGame/BaldursGate 2: Shadows of Amn'' is a psychotic dwarf who has no problem with murder, rape, theft or genocide. He's racist against just about anyone, sexually harasses the female party members and always, always suggests solving problems with his axe. But he won't harm children, and describes a man who beats his daughter as "not worth the spittle on his boots".
