* '''Played For Drama''': Bob is a KidHero who was put on the front lines with his friends. He and his friends always played war games and are exited for the real deal. Then the battle begins, and Bob is introduced to the hell that is war. Within minutes or even seconds, Bob watched his friends get slaughtered on the battlefield. Bob is also forced to kill people during the fighting, but never enjoys it. The war breaks him, and he comes home a ShellShockedVeteran in the shell of a young boy.

** Bob was conscripted by an evil army when he was ten years old, being thrown in to combat with neither choice nor desire. He experiences the horrors of war first-hand, watching comrades and equally-young enemies die from both combat and exposure to the elements. His officers are brutes who [[KickTheDog execute his own soldiers at the slightest provocation]], [[RapePillageAndBurn encourages his soldiers to commit atrocities]], and [[WeHaveReserves throws his boy-soldiers into dangerous situations unnecessarily]]. When Bob finally snaps and runs away, he is treated by society as a DangerousDeserter and [[YouCantGoHomeAgain is shunned by his hometown and family]].

** During an exercise the army, [[GenreSavvy knowing that any battlefield will probably have a lot of civilians on it]] hires teenagers from a nearby town to play the role. All reasonable efforts are taken for their safety. During some exercises, some do roleplay as ChildSoldiers. But of course the only weapons they shoot or have shot at them are paintball guns or similar devices.
