* ''WesternAnimation/SuperNoobs'': Alien warriors Memnock and Zenblock look to be intimidating and in apparently in their early 20's but both of them behave very childishly. They went on a kids monorail ride to relive childhood memories, went trick or treating, love candy, crafted their own stuffed animals in a build a bear workshop knockoff, and argued and fought each other in [[VitriolicBestBuds very immature ways]]. Some of their childishness can be understandable as they are unfamiliar with the cultures of earth and they both want to learn about it as much as possible, especially Memnock, who apparently [[Camp Straight does not care whether its masculine, feminine, or childish]]. Zenblock also sleeps with a teddy bear in his arms at night.

** Captain K'nuckles is also a good example of this in addition to be a huge CloudCuckoolander. He is addicted to candy, throws some tantrums, and sometimes acts Flapjack's age.

** General Blorgon, Hedies, and Tecknut, the leaders of the Benevolent Alliance also have shades of this as they childishly embrace Earth culture as much as Memnock and Zenblock do as shown in "Noobs Of The Round Table"

* ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants''. He's old enough to hold down a job and live on his own, but is so immature and goofy that he's been referred to as a kid on multiple occasions.

* Jerry in ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' is mentally about four. To be fair he's a mouse, but Tom has the intelligence of a teenager.

* Sterling Archer in ''{{Archer}}'', despite being a world-class secret agent, it also a brainless and immature MommasBoy who is often more interested in things like pirate lacrosse or ''Film/{{Aliens}}''-style space robots than the safety of his companions.
* WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker: ComicBook/TheJoker points out that for all the fear he invokes being TheCowl, Batman is really this trope:

* While it's not clear how old the Ferocious Beast in ''WesternAnimation/MaggieAndTheFerociousBeast'' is, he appears to be relatively physically mature. However, he acts more like a four-year-old, and six-year-old Maggie is far more levelheaded and responsible in comparison.

** Justified in that this was how his mother raised him. After [[spoiler: his father, a conman and literal rat]] left, Jojo Watterson raised Richard to be unable to do anything himself and instill a fear of everything in him, hence why he is the way he is today. We learn the latter when she attempts to do the same with her grandchildren in an episode (but Nicole put a stop to that.)

* The main characters of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' are all responsible young adults, more or less, setting aside when they need to be relatable to young children. However, Pinkie Pie acts like an excitable six year old and seems incapable of holding a serious conversation or actually reading the mood. She can be surprisingly neurotic whenever events aren't as exciting as possible or if she isn't getting the kind of attention she wants.

** Rarity has drama queen tendencies that are usually PlayedForLaughs, but, at their worst, they'll cause her to lock herself in a room and refuse to come out like a petulant child and sometimes breaks down and cries with little provocation. Her younger sister can hold it together a lot better than her most of the time.
