* Quite a few interpretations of Franchise/{{Batman}}. Which actually makes a lot of sense. He was clearly inspired by Zorro ([[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries or maybe the Gray Ghost]]) to become a super hero after his parents' death (and followed through with that childhood plan into adult hood!), keeps tons of [[WhereDoesHeGetAllThoseWonderfulToys cool toys and souvenirs]] around his mansion, is still taken care of by the same butler he's had since childhood and seems to get along very well with people much younger than him like Batgirl and Robin.
** In keeping with the EvilCounterpart theme of his RoguesGallery, most of Batman's villains are the [[PsychopathicManchild psychopathic]] variant of this trope.

* Similarly, Rage of Marvel's ''NewWarriors'' was an immature young teen when he got his powers -- which mutated him into the form of a very large and muscular ScaryBlackMan.

* ComicStrip/BrewsterRockit|SpaceGuy, from ''Brewster Rockit: Space Guy!'', is shown to be a manchild, even having book tapes on coloring books, and being exceedingly stupid. It is implied that he originally had average human intelligence, but his intelligence and maturity decreased substantially due to the government overdosing him on memory wipes.

* {{Asterix}}'s sidekick, Obelix.

to:

* {{Asterix}}'s sidekick, Obelix.ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'s best friend, Obelix, has a very innocent attitude to life despite his superhuman strength. He sulks when there's no wild boar (in ''Recap/AsterixInSpain'' he copies little Pepe and holds his breath until they get some); he can't think in the long term (eats the whole boatload of food on the first day at sea); and he only ever drinks goat milk.
