* [[VideoGame/{{Half-Life}} Gordon Freeman]], as depicted in FreemansMind, was this the even before his mental breakdown, apparently acting immature the whole time he worked at Black Mesa and doing many childish things like playing racket ball in the anti-mass spectrometer and doing a cannonball into his bath tub. And there's the episode where he discovers a cart that goes around in circles at high speeds. He just spends a full minute sitting there pressing the button that sends it back and forth while screaming "Weeeeeeeeee!". Let it be known that there's an alien invasion the middle of all this.

* Creator/{{Fictosophy}}: Tom, in "Jedi Coworker," goes to the office wearing Jedi robes.
--> '''Steve:''' Tom should be ashamed of himself for acting like such a child!

* [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-590 SCP-590]] was turned into one by the ''SCPFoundation'', specifically ordered by [[spoiler:his brother]] Dr. Bright, by using his [[EmpathicHealer ability]] to heal several people suffering mental retardation until he had the mind of a toddler. This was supposedly done as an act of "kindness" so he wouldn't realize his predicament.

* Guy and Ellers both from WebVideo/ChronicleOfTheAnnoyingQuest. Though Guy is more cynical while Ellers is a CasanovaWannabe, they both have extensive arguments about StarTrek, DoctorWho and just about anything associated with geekiness, never really taking their quest all that seriously. James, unlike his brother Eric, is naive to the point of stupidity. Goliath frequently asks questions any adult should know the answer to, and exasperates his wife constantly with his immaturity (oh, and he's also responsible for crashing the [[CoolStarShip Exodar]]). Finally, [[MinionWithAnFInEvil Stephi]] is a typical DumbBlonde ValleyGirl who thinks [[BigBad Dirim]] is her boyfriend. Basically a quarter of the series' cast fits this trope in some way.

# The "[[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/tendies-stories Tendies]]" meme from Website/FourChan parodies this trope, consisting of anecdotes that revolve around an autistic man/adolescent who lives with his parents and constantly terrorizes them by demanding praise and food items such as chicken tenders ("tendies"). Part of the meme also emphasizes the character's parents attempting to control his behavior with a childlike reward/punishment system known as "good boy points."

* Sparadrap in ''Franchise/{{Noob}}'', to the extent of making him more of TheCutie than a female character that was his DistaffCounterpart before her characterization diverged but didn't completely split off. His top priority in a fantasy MMORPG is collecting non-combat pets, his TrademarkFavoriteFood is a dessert home-made by his grandmother and he tries to make friends with every single player he meets despite the game having a faction system. This is more than enough for both his guildmates and his ''younger'' brother to consider they need to keep an eye on him... or in the case of the ManipulativeBastard among his guildmates, pull some of her easiest scams ever. [[spoiler:He starts maturing after an enemy player decides that it would be fun to destroy the bag containing his pets in front of him]].
