* In ''Manga/ElfenLied'', Bandou has no qualms about hitting and maiming little girls. Lucy herself murders a bunch. Some were [[KidsAreCruel horrible bastards]]. Others weren't. Kurama would qualify too, for he is tasked with euthanizing diclonius newborns. And then we have the utterly depraved and horrendous stuff The Unknown Man does...
* In ''Manga/SaintSeiya'', the Twelve Zodiac Temples Arc. Pegasus Seiya and Dragon Shiryu arrive to Cancer's Temple, and confront Cancer Gold Saint Deathkmask. The walls of said temple are covered by grim human faces, which are promptly explained to be the faces of the people Deathmask has killed in his battles. Seiya and Shiryu are both horrified and enraged when they realize that among those faces there are ''several children's faces''. When they demand an explanation from Deathmask as to why he'd kill children, he simply states that he doesn't know how that happened, that they must have been killed along with his enemies without him realizing. Then, he calls those murders "collateral victims" and as being a nice set of ornaments for the walls of his house (remember, Cancer is the fourth temple, four is a synonym for "death" for most oriental cultures), so ''he basically didn't give a damn'' about having killed countless children, which is what immediately infuriated both Seiya and Shiryu.
** Also, in the first chapters of both manga/anime versions, you can see the "special" training they give to all cloth´s candidates. In the Greek Sanctuary, they push the kids/teenagers into pits with spikes and you have to climb back by yourself while avoid falling, the mess of the other bodies, and other challengers competing with you. The Kido´s foundation kids doesn´t have precisely a better treatment: they are forced to train night and day, are beaten nearly to death if they openly defy the rules (see Ikki when he confronted Tatsumi), and after some time, they are send to different places around the world for receiving heavy brutal training (things like surviving in a hot volcanic island while your sensei beat the shit out of you everyday, battling and killing grizzly bears with your bare hands, training in extreme cold conditions with not the appropriate clothing, etc), all of this only having around 10-11 years old (in fact, from the 100 kids Mitsumasa Kido sent around the globe, only ten returned...)
* In ''Manga/{{Devilman}}'', Amon doesn't care who is in his path. Child, baby... It's all good as long as it bleeds!
** And so do his enemies, to be honest. [[spoiler: Poor little Sachiko and Miki's younger brother.]]

''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' movie, ''Paint it white'', one of the people Deathmask victims of [[spoiler:the Pict aliens]] is Sealand, a micro-nation who for all effects has killed the looks and the mindset of a 12-year-old boy. Subverted in the ''Manga/HetaliaBloodbath2010'', where [[spoiler:it ''looks'' like he'll be kidnapped... but he shows his battles. Seiya BadassAdorable ID and Shiryu are both horrified and enraged when they realize that among those faces there are ''several children's faces''. When they demand an explanation from Deathmask as applies DefeatMeansFriendship to why he'd kill children, he simply states that he doesn't know how that happened, that they must have been killed along his attacker]].
* Ladd Russo in ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'' shoots a kid in the face
with his enemies without him realizing. Then, he calls those murders "collateral victims" and as being a nice set of ornaments shotgun for the walls hell of his house (remember, Cancer is the fourth temple, four is a synonym for "death" for most oriental cultures), so ''he basically didn't give a damn'' about having killed countless children, which is what immediately infuriated both Seiya and Shiryu.
** Also,
it. Vino also tortures said child, though since he ''had'' just watched Ladd shoot him in the first chapters of both manga/anime versions, you can see the "special" training they give face, he knew [[{{Immortality}} it wouldn't stick]]. [[spoiler:And Czes had tried to all cloth´s candidates.

deserved it.]]



* In ''Manga/{{Trigun}}'', Wolfwood kills Zazie, who looks like a very young child (and ''is'' a child in the anime - in the manga, it's both complicated and frigging weird).
** There's also the Gung-Ho Gun Monev the Gale, where after the shootout some of the corpses laid about were children.
* Female example: In ''Manga/{{Jackals}}'', Roxy bisects 7 year-old Giulio Montero in one blow. Notable in that she did it directly and with her own hands. Subverted in that the child is actually an EnfantTerrible.
* Ladd Russo in ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'' shoots a kid in the face with a shotgun for the hell of it. Vino also tortures said child, though since he ''had'' just watched Ladd shoot him in the face, he knew [[{{Immortality}} it wouldn't stick]]. [[spoiler:And Czes had tried to get Ladd to kill everyone, so in Vino's mind he deserved it.]]
* Many of ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'''s bad guys are not above visiting cruelty or worse upon children, and some of the worst, such as Jackal and Souther, have actually killed kids in the manga. Because Kenshiro is a FriendToAllChildren, his wrath is especially violent when these kinds of villains go too far.
* The villains of ''Manga/DragonBall'' in all its incarnations, though the kids in question [[CuteBruiser can dish it back out as well]]. Vegeta in the Namekian arc, kills [[WouldHurtAChild civilian]] children who were never revived.
** Most of the serious villains in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' seem to see little difference between killing a child and killing an adult.
* If ''Manga/DragonBall'' counts, so do the {{Anti Villain}}s of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'', who ripped a (non-vital) organ out of a nine-year old girl's chest while she was still conscious, and later had no qualms about fighting her and her just as young friends at full power. They had a good reason to do that (at least, they couldn't see a better way to save an IllGirl who is around the same age of the kind they attacked) and the children in question could dish it out just as well as DB heroes.
** And then we have ''[=StrikerS=]'' aka the third season, where the villains [[spoiler:strap the six-year-old Vivio to an ArtifactOfDoom and torture her [[PoweredByAForsakenChild to power it up]].]] Some didn't seem pleased, but they didn't do a lot to stop it either.
*** In ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid'', after Nove's fight with DarkMagicalGirl Einhart:
---->'''Subaru''': But this is bad, Nove! Even if both of you agreed on the fight, you shouldn't have been so harsh on a little girl.
---->'''Nove''': Give me a break... I was beaten up quite badly too! It still hurts all over!
* ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'' has 9-year-old Maria Ushiromiya regularly killed off alongside the rest of the cast. While the first four times were relatively nice ([[spoiler:explosion, explosion]], strangulation, poison), the fifth time was a gaping neck wound, and the sixth was brutal decapitation. She keeps coming back to life due to a GroundhogDayLoop.
** Maria's mother, Rosa, also physically beats her. One of their first scenes has her slapping Maria to the ground.
* Its predecessor, ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'', does this even more often. Although some instances are "simply" teen-on-teen, [[spoiler:almost every]] world ends with little [[OracularUrchin Rika]] being disemboweled by [[spoiler:Takano, who is an adult woman]], and in one of the most gruesome arcs of the series, [[{{Yandere}} Shion]] first does a full-blown crucifixion of [[BrattyHalfPint Satoko]], then stabs her repeatedly to death.
** Another straighter example, especially notable for featuring an adult woman, is when Rina attempts to strangle the barely teenaged Rena after beating her up.
** Shion also brutally beats up Satoko for being too clingy to Satoshi, until Rika and Rena pull a GoThroughMe to defend Satoko, and then she gets PunchedAcrossTheRoom by a ''very'' pissed off Satoshi. While Satoko ''was'' extremely dependent on Satoshi, it's still no excuse for Shion almost killing much younger and weaker girl in the middle of a Yandere tantrum -- and a girl who was the ''only'' good relative Satoshi still had left!



* A rare occasion that isn't a KickTheDog moment: Maki's death in ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack''. He may be a kid, but he [[TroublingUnchildlikeBehaviour doesn't act it]] and is also a jealous {{yandere}} and a [[DifferentlyPoweredIndividual Contractor]] with no qualms about blowing up relative innocents ([[spoiler:let alone the guy his boss/crush needs to keep alive to prevent a genocide]]), so it's actually rather satisfying to see the arrogant brat underestimate [[spoiler:[[AnIcePerson November 11]], [[ItsPersonal whose partner he'd hospitalized]]]] and wind up ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice for his trouble.
* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', Nagato kills every person associated with Hanzo, including Hanzo's children and the children of Hanzo's loyalists, after Nagato wrestles control of Amegakure from Hanzo. Nagato, however, seemed indifferent to their deaths, as they were his precaution to quell any possible rebellion over his leadership in the future.
** [[spoiler:Tobi]] took a baby [[spoiler:Naruto]] hostage, nearly spearing him with a kunai and ''blowing him up'' in the process.
** Orochimaru once performed an experiment trying to infuse the DNA of the First Hokage into 60 children. One, Yamato, survived and gained his [[GreenThumb power]]. The rest (and to Orochimaru's knowledge until much later, all of them) died.
** This is a default in Naruto considering their world is full of ChildSoldiers, the main characters included.



* No one in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' seems to have a problem hitting [[EnfanteTerrible Pride]] (AKA [[spoiler:Selim Bradley]]). Then again, [[EldritchAbomination given]] [[TheDragon what the]] [[SmugSnake little]] [[LackOfEmpathy bastard]] [[ArtificialHuman is]]...Pride is still able to use this to his advantage, as evidenced by townspeople running to his rescue when he's attacked by [[PantheraAwesome Heinkel]].
** Shou Tucker [[spoiler:[[FateWorseThanDeath fuses his own young daughter, Nina, and her pet dog into a chimaera]]]] in order to show off another talking chimaera (the first one was made from [[spoiler:his wife]]) and keep his license as a State Alchemist. Then [[AntiHero Scar]] [[spoiler:{{mercy kill}}s her]].
** [[spoiler:Envy disguised as]] an officer [[spoiler:deliberately]] killed an Ishbalan child, starting the Ishbalan Massacre.
** In the [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist 2003 anime version]], [[spoiler:Bradley/Pride kills his own son by breaking his neck. In ''this'' continuity, Selim is actually a normal kid and his real son]].
*** In the same anime no one seems to mind beating Wrath around. He resembles a 8 - 10 year old child, tops.
* In ''[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]]'', the Titans fire their colony laser, destroying a colony in the process. Women and children are shown dying. Though not direct killing, it is a brutal sight.
** The implications of their gas attacks! When we're shown the gassed colonies, we see corpses of children among the ruins.
** Glemmy Toto from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ'' doesn't care how many ten year old girls die fighting for him. He keeps an army of Puru clones, sending them out to do his fighting as his killing. When the clones become attached to other people, he has their successors kill them, all without the slightest hint of remorse.
*** Also, at some point Haman ''shoots'' Leina. [[TranquilFury Which MASSIVELY pisses her brother Judau off.]]
* Fuuma Kotarou from ''Manga/NabariNoOu'' ''blows 4-year-old [[spoiler:Miharu]]'s face off'' for no apparent reason. [[MoralEventHorizon While smiling]].
* Agon of ''Manga/{{Eyeshield 21}}'' threw a football at the knees of a kid in a wheelchair, thus cementing his status as the series' "villain" (or closest they have).



* ''Manga/InuYasha'' has a few of these:
** [[BigBad Naraku]] has no concerns about attacking anyone and anything in his quest [[spoiler:(which has nothing to do with material power or world domination, [[ForTheEvulz he's simply miserable and wants everyone else share in that misery]])]]. He attacks and tries to kill [[MoralityPet 8-year-old Rin]]; he [[KilledOffForReal kills]], [[BackFromTheDead resurrects]], [[BrainWashed enslaves]] and [[MindScrew manipulates]] [[DesignatedVictim 11-year-old Kohaku]]; some of his detachments have the look of children (such as [[TheStarscream Hakudoushi]], [[CreepyChild Kanna]] and [[EnfanteTerrible the baby]]) and he has no hesitation in using and discarding them. This is before we get to the [[AMillionIsAStatistic collateral damage]] his activities have on random villages and low-level {{youkai}} populations.
** Kouga, although we only see one direct example of this. He's introduced to the story having destroyed several human villages and in the process of destroying another village - [[ChildrenAreInnocent Rin's]] home, which is also her introduction to the storyline. On his [[KillEmAll orders]], the wolves wipe out the entire village, including Rin. After that, he's more interested in [[ItsPersonal fighting Naraku]] and [[TheRival winning Kagome's heart]] to target humans again. When [[{{Youkai}} his people]] are revisited later on in the manga, the subject of them being a human-killing race is briefly mentioned although [[WouldBeRudeToSayGenocide not specifically in relation to Kouga's past]].
** [[DarkActionGirl Kagura]] tries to be this, [[AntiVillain but fails.]] She kidnaps [[ChildrenAreInnocent Rin]] on Naraku's order but never lifts a finger against her otherwise, and when Rin's in her presence again without [[PapaWolf Sesshoumaru]] around, she has [[IWasJustPassingThrough no interest in hurting her]]. She's ordered to protect Naraku's [[EnfanteTerrible baby]] and, despite [[CreepyChild loathing it]], she does reluctantly look after it. [[TheStarscream Hakudoushi]] is far crueller towards her than she ever is to him, and the detachment she appears to be closest to [[SoulPower is]] [[SoulJar Kanna]]. [[spoiler:In the end, she meets her death when [[SadisticChoice ordered]] to kill Kohaku - she [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifices]] herself to save his life.]]
** In the anime, Dark {{Miko}} [[{{Filler}} Tsubaki]] is the one to blame for a then 10-year-old Kaede [[EyeScream losing her eye]]. WordOfGod stated that Kaede actually lost her eye when Inuyasha attacked Kikyou's village in an attempt to steal the Jewel of Four Souls.
* Quite a common thing in ''Manga/YuGiOh'', the most frequent victims being Yugi himself, and to a lesser extent, Jonouchi. To say nothing of [[DesignatedVictim Mokuba]]
** Once he learns to trust them, Mokuba details, to Yugi and the others, how their adoptive father abused Seto.
** This is even more true in ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal'', not only because the protagonist is only twelve years old, but because ''every'' major villain in the first season seemed willing to abuse and take advantage of poor Haruto, even [[spoiler: Dr. Faker, ''his own father''. Although it is later revealed that Faker actually had Haruto's [[WellIntentionedExtremist best interests in mind]].]]
* In ''Anime/SailorMoon S'', ''6-year-old'' Chibiusa has her heart crystal ripped out by Mistress 9. This is also played with later when Uranus and Neptune try to kill Mistress 9 as she inhabits the body of 12-year-old Hotaru, only for Usagi to defend her. This sort of works.
** Also, many of the victims of the villains are children. In a memorable episode of the ''R'' season, ''babies'' were either drained of their life energy (with [[GenderBlenderName Manami]] being the only one unharmed due to Mom's intervention) or used as hostages by the monster of the week. Too bad it didn't count on Mercury getting a MidSeasonUpgrade [[MamaBear out of pure anger]].
** With the exception of the Outers (Pluto since the beginning, Stars!Haruka and Stars!Michiru), the scouts are all teenage girls who fall in the 14-16 year old range.
* At first, [[Anime/{{Monster}} Johan Liebert]] appears to be an aversion of this. [[MindRape But then you find out that he just manipulates them into killing themselves.]] [[SadisticChoice And then he threatens to shoot an 8-10 year old boy in the head if Dr. Tenma doesn't shoot him first.]] And he would definitely do it.
** There's the child he nearly manipulated into committing suicide by telling him his mother was in the RedLightDistrict and sending him there with the thought that if no one claims him, he's unwanted and has no reason to live. [[TearJerker The child is going to jump off of a bridge when Tenma and Grimmer find him and convince him that he actually is wanted in the world.]] Easily one of Johan's most despicable acts in the entire series, which is really saying something.

to:

* ''Manga/InuYasha'' has a few The Homunculi of these:
** [[BigBad Naraku]] has no concerns about attacking anyone
''Manga/BusouRenkin'' liked to ''eat'' children, as their meat was more tender than adults. Tokiko was the ''only'' survivor of a homunculus attack on her grade school when she was 10.
* ''Anime/{{Catnapped}}'': [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Princess Buburina]] attempts to turn both [[PluckyGirl Meeko]]
and anything in his quest [[spoiler:(which has nothing to do with material power or world domination, [[ForTheEvulz he's simply miserable her brother Toriyasu into balloons and wants everyone else share in pop them [[spoiler: only to find that misery]])]]. He attacks and it doesn't work since they're both human]]. With the former, she tries to do it [[DisproportionateRetribution in retaliation for]] [[DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu calling her a witch]], [[spoiler: but when she finds that she can't pop her, she instead decides to turn her into a monster the next day]], and with the latter, she tries to do so in order to stop him and [[ActionGirl Chu Chu]] from retrieving Papadoll... [[spoiler: Guess what happens next?]]
** It's worth noting that [[BumblingSidekick Doh Doh]] points out that Buburina is merciful to little kids, which might make sense considering she didn't try to
kill Meeko until the latter [[BerserkButton insulted her]] not to mention that she and Toriyasu ''were'' both [[YouMeddlingKids interfering with her plans for world domination]]. So it's likely that she wouldn't do this to a child unless they did something to make her angry, although it could've just been something Doh Doh said to urge Meeko to apologize.
* Although they are not allowed to harm humans, [[IceQueen Teresa]] demonstrated that she was not above kicking a traumatized little kid around in ''Manga/{{Claymore}}''. Said kid is actually [[HowWeGotHere soon-to-be main protagonist Clare]] and how she
[[MoralityPet 8-year-old Rin]]; he [[KilledOffForReal kills]], [[BackFromTheDead resurrects]], [[BrainWashed enslaves]] and [[MindScrew manipulates]] [[DesignatedVictim 11-year-old Kohaku]]; some of his detachments have the look of children (such as [[TheStarscream Hakudoushi]], [[CreepyChild Kanna]] and [[EnfanteTerrible the baby]]) and he has no hesitation in using and discarding them.

* A nobleman shoots a StreetUrchin to death in ''Manga/RoseOfVersailles'', [[ForTheEvulz just because he could]], despite the pleas of a teenage girl. Oscar then shoots him in the hand so he'll never be able to use weapons.
** And in-story, the [[spoiler:Raid of La Bastille]] started when a peasant boy got shot to death in front of his parents. For worse, it was by mistake since a dumbass soldier wanted to shoot the kid's ''father'' and got the shot wrong.

* In the ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' movie, ''Paint it white'', one of the victims of [[spoiler:the Pict aliens]] is Sealand, a micro-nation who for all effects has the looks and the mindset of a 12-year-old boy.

* Mild case of this in ''Anime/DigimonTamers''. Yamaki, in his desperation to stop the Digimon who keep coming into the real world, physically attacks main character Jen/[[DubNameChange Henry]] who is 10 in the Japanese version and 12 in the dub. Unlike most examples on this page, Yamaki eventually becomes TheAtoner.

* Perhaps [[AxCrazy not too surprisingly]], Yuno in ''Manga/FutureDiary'' is more than willing to kill [[EnfantTerrible Fifth diary owner Reisuke]], and even chases him around Yuki's house with a hammer. [[spoiler: She does eventually kill him.]]
** [[MadBomber Uryuu]] [[ElegantGothicLolita Minene]] plants bombs all over a school full of kids, and winds up killing quite a few of them.
** [[spoiler: Once he [[BreakTheCutie loses it]], Yuki uses Kamado's orphans to lure John Balks and joins Yuno in killing ''them.'']] Yes, you read that right. Though [[spoiler:Yuki did believe he could bring them all back to life once he won the game and became God, and was planning to. Unfortunately, it turned out God cannot bring back the dead.]]
* In ''Anime/GingaDensetsuWeed'', Thunder and Lector, the Doberman Pinscher assassins for Hougen, threaten to kill Teru if his father didn't kill Kyoshiro. It was also kinda personal, since Kyoshiro was the one who tore off Teru's father's ear.
* In ''Animation/GuardianFairyMichel'', Salome and her gang are constantly at war with Kim and Michel. Aside from trying to harm or kill them, they've also kidnapped and attacked other children--or used the threat of doing so to make the heroes back off.
* Umineko predecessor, ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'', does this even more often. Although some instances are "simply" teen-on-teen, [[spoiler:almost every]] world ends with little [[OracularUrchin Rika]] being disemboweled by [[spoiler:Takano, who is an adult woman]], and in
one of the victims most gruesome arcs of [[spoiler:the Pict aliens]] is Sealand, the series, [[{{Yandere}} Shion]] first does a micro-nation who full-blown crucifixion of [[BrattyHalfPint Satoko]], then stabs her repeatedly to death.
** Another straighter example, especially notable
for all effects has featuring an adult woman, is when Rina attempts to strangle the looks barely teenaged Rena after beating her up.
** Shion also brutally beats up Satoko for being too clingy to Satoshi, until Rika
and the mindset of Rena pull a 12-year-old boy. Subverted GoThroughMe to defend Satoko, and then she gets PunchedAcrossTheRoom by a ''very'' pissed off Satoshi. While Satoko ''was'' extremely dependent on Satoshi, it's still no excuse for Shion almost killing much younger and weaker girl in the ''Manga/HetaliaBloodbath2010'', where [[spoiler:it ''looks'' like he'll be kidnapped... but he shows his BadassAdorable ID middle of a Yandere tantrum -- and applies DefeatMeansFriendship to his attacker]].
* The Homunculi of ''Manga/BusouRenkin'' liked to ''eat'' children, as their meat was more tender than adults. Tokiko
a girl who was the ''only'' survivor of a homunculus attack on her grade school when she was 10.
* 12-year-old Chris Thorndyke from ''Anime/SonicX'' is TheScrappy, yeah... but it
good relative Satoshi still does NOT mean had left!
* ''Manga/InuYasha'' has a few of these:
** [[BigBad Naraku]] has no concerns about attacking anyone and anything in his quest [[spoiler:(which has nothing to do with material power or world domination, [[ForTheEvulz he's simply miserable and wants everyone else share in
that misery]])]]. He attacks and tries to kill [[MoralityPet 8-year-old Rin]]; he deserves [[KilledOffForReal kills]], [[BackFromTheDead resurrects]], [[BrainWashed enslaves]] and [[MindScrew manipulates]] [[DesignatedVictim 11-year-old Kohaku]]; some of his detachments have the look of children (such as [[TheStarscream Hakudoushi]], [[CreepyChild Kanna]] and [[EnfanteTerrible the baby]]) and he has no hesitation in using and discarding them. This is before we get to the [[AMillionIsAStatistic collateral damage]] his activities have on random villages and low-level {{youkai}} populations.
** Kouga, although we only see one direct example of this. He's introduced to the story having destroyed several human villages and in the process of destroying another village - [[ChildrenAreInnocent Rin's]] home, which is also her introduction to the storyline. On his [[KillEmAll orders]], the wolves wipe out the entire village, including Rin. After that, he's more interested in [[ItsPersonal fighting Naraku]] and [[TheRival winning Kagome's heart]] to target humans again. When [[{{Youkai}} his people]] are revisited later on in the manga, the subject of them being a human-killing race is briefly mentioned although [[WouldBeRudeToSayGenocide not specifically in relation to Kouga's past]].
** [[DarkActionGirl Kagura]] tries
to be beaten up by Shadow [[spoiler: this, [[AntiVillain but fails.]] She kidnaps [[ChildrenAreInnocent Rin]] on Naraku's order but never lifts a finger against her otherwise, and later kidnapped when Rin's in her presence again without [[PapaWolf Sesshoumaru]] around, she has [[IWasJustPassingThrough no interest in hurting her]]. She's ordered to protect Naraku's [[EnfanteTerrible baby]] and, despite [[CreepyChild loathing it]], she does reluctantly look after it. [[TheStarscream Hakudoushi]] is far crueller towards her than she ever is to him, and brutally tortured, alongside the also very young Cosmo, by Black Narcissus.]] The second incident detachment she appears to be closest to [[SoulPower is]] [[SoulJar Kanna]]. [[spoiler:In the end, she meets her death when [[SadisticChoice ordered]] to kill Kohaku - she [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifices]] herself to save his life.]]
** In the anime, Dark {{Miko}} [[{{Filler}} Tsubaki]]
is so bad the one to blame for a then 10-year-old Kaede [[EyeScream losing her eye]]. WordOfGod stated that [[EvenEvilHasStandards not even Dr. Eggman approves]]!Kaede actually lost her eye when Inuyasha attacked Kikyou's village in an attempt to steal the Jewel of Four Souls.



* Female example: In ''Manga/{{Jackals}}'', Roxy bisects 7 year-old Giulio Montero in one blow. Notable in that she did it directly and with her own hands. Subverted in that the child is actually an EnfantTerrible.
* Several in ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure''. Part 3 has Alessi, who straight-up refuses to fight adults because they can put up too much of a fight, and whose Stand power de-ages anybody it touches. There's also Petshop, who would have killed a young boy if it wasn't for Iggy intervening.
* In ''Anime/JuuniSenshiBakuretsuEtoRanger'', TagalongKid Urii the Piglet is nearly killed onscreen twice. The first time, the disguised [[MonsterOfTheWeek jyarei]] cornered him and tried to turn him into a roast; he only escaped because his PowerIncontinence shot a WaveMotionGun into the sky, which acted as a distress flare. The second time, BigBad Nyanma ''enjoyed'' trapping Urii and some of the other Eto Rangers inside a house, intending to detonate the entire building with them in it. [[spoiler: Urii was the only hostage who survived, thanks to Pakaracchi [[HeroicSacrifice offering himself]] as a HumanShield]].
* In the manga version of ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' spin-off ''KOF: Kyo'', [[spoiler: Goenitz kills Maki Kagura in front of her twin sister Chizuru when ''both of the twins were 10 years old''.]] The whole thing was never shown, save for a DeadHandShot of her bloodied hand.
* The ''Anime/KirbyRightBackAtYa'' version of [[BigBad King Dedede]] was [[AdaptationalVillainy certainly a step up from his game counterpart in terms of cruel dictatorship]]. In his attempts to [[MemeticMutation "clobber that there Kirby"]], he put other innocent lives in danger as well. Never mind that Kirby himself is a baby. Dedede's biggest MoralEventHorizon in some fans' eyes, though, was when he tried to crush Fumu / [[DubNameChange Tiff]] with the Dedede Stone.
* The {{Anti Villain}}s of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'', who ripped a (non-vital) organ out of a nine-year old girl's chest while she was still conscious, and later had no qualms about fighting her and her just as young friends at full power. They had a good reason to do that (at least, they couldn't see a better way to save an IllGirl who is around the same age of the kind they attacked) and the children in question could dish it out just as well as DB heroes.
** And then we have ''[=StrikerS=]'' aka the third season, where the villains [[spoiler:strap the six-year-old Vivio to an ArtifactOfDoom and torture her [[PoweredByAForsakenChild to power it up]].]] Some didn't seem pleased, but they didn't do a lot to stop it either.
*** In ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid'', after Nove's fight with DarkMagicalGirl Einhart:
---->'''Subaru''': But this is bad, Nove! Even if both of you agreed on the fight, you shouldn't have been so harsh on a little girl.
---->'''Nove''': Give me a break... I was beaten up quite badly too! It still hurts all over!
* In ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam'', the Titans fire their colony laser, destroying a colony in the process. Women and children are shown dying. Though not direct killing, it is a brutal sight.
** The implications of their gas attacks! When we're shown the gassed colonies, we see corpses of children among the ruins.
** Glemmy Toto from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ'' doesn't care how many ten year old girls die fighting for him. He keeps an army of Puru clones, sending them out to do his fighting as his killing. When the clones become attached to other people, he has their successors kill them, all without the slightest hint of remorse.
*** Also, at some point Haman ''shoots'' Leina. [[TranquilFury Which MASSIVELY pisses her brother Judau off.]]
* At first, Johan Liebert from ''Anime/{{Monster}}'' appears to be an aversion of this. [[MindRape But then you find out that he just manipulates them into killing themselves.]] [[SadisticChoice And then he threatens to shoot an 8-10 year old boy in the head if Dr. Tenma doesn't shoot him first.]] And he would definitely do it.
** There's the child he nearly manipulated into committing suicide by telling him his mother was in the RedLightDistrict and sending him there with the thought that if no one claims him, he's unwanted and has no reason to live. [[TearJerker The child is going to jump off of a bridge when Tenma and Grimmer find him and convince him that he actually is wanted in the world.]] Easily one of Johan's most despicable acts in the entire series, which is really saying something.
* Turkes from ''Manga/MotherKeeper'' is introduced by having him blow up a child and then beheading their horrified sibling.
* Fuuma Kotarou from ''Manga/NabariNoOu'' ''blows 4-year-old [[spoiler:Miharu]]'s face off'' for no apparent reason. [[MoralEventHorizon While smiling]].
* This is a default in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' considering their world is full of ChildSoldiers, the main characters included.
** Nagato kills every person associated with Hanzo, including Hanzo's children and the children of Hanzo's loyalists, after Nagato wrestles control of Amegakure from Hanzo. Nagato, however, seemed indifferent to their deaths, as they were his precaution to quell any possible rebellion over his leadership in the future.
** [[spoiler:Tobi]] took a baby [[spoiler:Naruto]] hostage, nearly spearing him with a kunai and ''blowing him up'' in the process.
** Orochimaru once performed an experiment trying to infuse the DNA of the First Hokage into 60 children. One, Yamato, survived and gained his [[GreenThumb power]]. The rest (and to Orochimaru's knowledge until much later, all of them) died.



* [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds Maria]] from ''Anime/{{Witchblade}}'' has no problem with killing her teammates or the science institute trainees, due mostly to [[AxCrazy her own messed up childhood]] and not being much older herself. (They begin training at 12) She even attempts to kill [[MoralityPet Rihoko]] out of jealousy for receiving more of her (biological) mother's love even though they'd never met. (Her mother treated Maria completely as an experiment her whole life instead)
* In ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' where the [[ManipulativeBastard evil little prick]] was [[Really700YearsOld rendered immortal during an accident involving a warp gate struck by a meteor]] and it was the only thing that could hurt him. He had been crippling or taking crippled older men who all looked similar and forcibly inserting himself as their son to keep his cover, passing his 'fathers' off as the terrorist Zebra. Spike knows full well by the time he guns him down what he really was.

* Many, many villains in ''Manga/FairyTail''.
* Many, many villains in ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' and ''Manga/ACertainScientificRailgun'' do not hesitate to beat up or try to kill little kids.
* Although they are not allowed to harm humans, [[IceQueen Teresa]] demonstrated that she was not above kicking a traumatized little kid around in ''Manga/{{Claymore}}''. Said kid is actually [[HowWeGotHere soon-to-be main protagonist Clare]] and how she [[MoralityPet humanized]] [[DefrostingIceQueen Teresa through their meeting and interaction.]]

[[spoiler: Guess what happens next?]]
** It's worth noting that [[BumblingSidekick Doh Doh]] points out that Buburina is merciful to little kids, which might make sense considering she didn't try to kill Meeko until the latter [[BerserkButton insulted her]] not to mention that she and Toriyasu ''were'' both [[YouMeddlingKids interfering with her plans for world domination]]. So it's likely that she wouldn't do this to a child unless they did something to make her angry, although it could've just been something Doh Doh said to urge Meeko to apologize.

Oscar then shoots him in the hand so he'll never be able to use weapons.
** And in-story, the [[spoiler:Raid of La Bastille]] started when a peasant boy got
shot to death in front of his parents. For worse, it was by mistake since a WaveMotionGun dumbass soldier wanted to shoot the kid's ''father'' and got the shot wrong.
* In ''Anime/SailorMoon S'', ''6-year-old'' Chibiusa has her heart crystal ripped out by Mistress 9. This is also played with later when Uranus and Neptune try to kill Mistress 9 as she inhabits the body of 12-year-old Hotaru, only for Usagi to defend her. This sort of works.
** Also, many of the victims of the villains are children. In a memorable episode of the ''R'' season, ''babies'' were either drained of their life energy (with [[GenderBlenderName Manami]] being the only one unharmed due to Mom's intervention) or used as hostages by the monster of the week. Too bad it didn't count on Mercury getting a MidSeasonUpgrade [[MamaBear out of pure anger]].
** With the exception of the Outers (Pluto since the beginning, Stars!Haruka and Stars!Michiru), the scouts are all teenage girls who fall in the 14-16 year old range.
* ''Manga/SaintSeiya'':
** In the first chapters of both manga/anime versions, you can see the "special" training they give to all cloth´s candidates. In the Greek Sanctuary, they push the kids/teenagers

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/{{Trigun}}'', Wolfwood kills Zazie, who looks like a very young child (and ''is'' a child in the anime - in the manga, it's both complicated and frigging weird).
** There's also the Gung-Ho Gun Monev the Gale, where after the shootout some of the corpses laid about were children.
* ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'' has 9-year-old Maria Ushiromiya regularly killed off alongside the rest of the cast. While the first four times were relatively nice ([[spoiler:explosion, explosion]], strangulation, poison), the fifth time was a gaping neck wound, and the sixth was brutal decapitation. She keeps coming back to life due to a GroundhogDayLoop.
** Maria's mother, Rosa, also physically beats her. One of their first scenes has her slapping Maria to the ground.
* In ''Manga/ViolenceJack'' numerous children are killed. One scene of the manga even has a girl beheaded, along with the man who used her as a human shield.
* [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds Maria]] from ''Anime/{{Witchblade}}'' has no problem with killing her teammates or the science institute trainees, due mostly to [[AxCrazy her own messed up childhood]] and not being much older herself. (They begin training at 12) She even attempts to kill [[MoralityPet Rihoko]] out of jealousy for receiving more of her (biological) mother's love even though they'd never met. (Her mother treated Maria completely as an experiment her whole life instead)
* Shogunyan from ''Anime/YokaiWatch'' attempted to kill eleven-year old Nate because he wasn't respecting him.
* Quite a common thing in ''Manga/YuGiOh'', the most frequent victims being Yugi himself, and to a lesser extent, Jonouchi. To say nothing of [[DesignatedVictim Mokuba]]
** Once he learns to trust them, Mokuba details, to Yugi and the others, how their adoptive father abused Seto.
** This is even more true in ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal'', not only because the protagonist is only twelve years old, but because ''every'' major villain in the first season seemed willing to abuse and take advantage of poor Haruto, even [[spoiler: Dr. Faker, ''his own father''. Although it is later revealed that Faker actually had Haruto's [[WellIntentionedExtremist best interests in mind]].]]

* The villains of ''Manga/DragonBall'' in all its incarnations, though the kids in question [[CuteBruiser can dish it back out as well]]. Vegeta in the Namekian arc, kills [[WouldHurtAChild civilian]] children who were never revived. This made his later HeelFaceTurn hard to swallow for some fans.

** There's also the Marines, who following the death of Gold Roger, searched islands he may have frequented and killed any babies born within nine months of his execution. [[spoiler:His pregnant lover Portgas D. Rouge [[GenreSavvy knew they would do this]], and held Roger's child in her womb for 20 months [[PluckyGirl through sheer]] [[MamaBear willpower]]. [[DeathByChildbirth It ultimately cost Rouge her life]], but it allowed said kid (Portgas D. Ace) to be born and raised in a more or less safe environment.]]

** In ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'', this is sort of a given seeing how the heroes are usually [[KidHero kids]] and the villains are adults, but it is worth mentioning that it's a rather common tactic in this 'verse [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy to aim]] [[CombatPragmatist for the]] [[KidWithTheLeash trainer]] when possible.

** And then we have ''[=StrikerS=]'' aka the third season, where the villains [[spoiler:strap the six-year-old Vivio to an ArtifactOfDoom and torture her [[PoweredByaForsakenChild to power it up]].]] Some didn't seem pleased, but they didn't do a lot to stop it either.
