* The ''Anime/SonicX'' dub (like many of Creator/FourKidsEntertainment 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 4kids actually edited out a gravestone in one image).

* In ''Videogame/SlimeRancher'', chickadoos are baby chickens that will never be eaten by slimes. Even ''[[GreyGoo The Tarr]]'' will simply ignore them. However, [[http://cloud-3.steamusercontent.com/ugc/447358114675475917/1E2F6F821443891D630648CD42339E0751F476BE/ all bets are off once the chickaddos reach adulthood...]]

* In ''Videogame/DarkestDungeon'', an abusive Highwayman will claim as such as a backhanded insult, increasing stress of his target. That said, it is very much implied by [[http://www.darkestdungeon.com/wp-content/uploads/Hwy_final_logo.jpg his comic]] that his guilt over killing an innocent woman and her child is what drove him to becoming TheAtoner.

* ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2'':
** Despite being a bunch of bloodthirsty SpacePirates, the Ravagers refuse to kill Baby Groot, citing that he is far too cute. Instead, they elect to put him in a tiny Ravager uniform. Unfortunately for them Baby Groot is still, well, [[CuteBruiser Groot]].
** A code among the Ravagers is they do not engage in child trafficking. Yondu is a pariah among them for breaking this code, taking children to Ego.

* In ''Webcomic/TheYoungProtectors'', the world's [[KidHero underage superhero teams]] are off-limits to supervillains -- and, as {{the Dreaded}} villain Annihilator [[http://webcomics.yaoi911.com/typ/ete-ch2-page-15/ explains]], those of them [[EvenEvilHasStandards with standards]] enforce that rule lethally on those without. [[Wooing a 17-year-old hero and springing a HoneyTrap the moment they turn 18, however, is fair game.]]

* ''Film/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.

* King Hamdo, the mad tyrant in ''Anime/NowAndThenHereAndThere'', uses this trope to his advantage; he employs an army of children so his enemies will be hesitant to fight back. Unfortunately, he also utilizes the child soldiers as [[WeHaveReserves war fodder]].
** This was based on RealLife examples like the Lord's Resistance Army in Uganda.

** After seeing what happened to the Targaryen children during Robert's Rebellion, Ned does not want to see history repeat itself. While warning Cersei to take the children and run might have been the noble thing to do, it wasn't the ''smartest'' thing to do. Ironically, this action alone did not result in his death: Cersei never intended to kill him, merely send him to the Night's Watch. He was finally killed on the whim of a boy-king, the very person he had intended to spare. The reason for him holding to this belief is [[spoiler:his fear for his nephew Jon Snow's safety, who he raised as his own child. Robert Baratheon wanted to kill all of Rhaegar's offspring, which if the truth were revealed, would include Jon as well, who is the hidden son of Lyanna Stark -- Ned's sister -- and Rheagar Targaryen. Ned internalized this to protect all children in danger from the crown: Daenerys and also Cersei's kids.]]
