* 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.

* Poor [[LittleMissBadass Lily]] [[CreepyChild Baskerville]] from ''Manga/PandoraHearts'' is constantly bullied by either [[FauxAffablyEvil Vincent]] or [[LetsGetDangerous Break]], and even [[spoiler: [[NonActionGuy Reim]] shoots her in the head after she killed his colleagues. [[NighInvulnerable Being a Baskerville]], she survives.]] And just like [[spoiler: his colleague Reim, [[HitmanWithAHeart Gilbert]] is GenreSavvy enough to hurt [[KidWithTheLeash a child controlling a monster]], even if he doesn't like it:]]

** 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.

* Many cases in ''Manga/DetectiveConan'' involve children getting hurt or killed by {{Asshole Victim}}s. I.e., we have [[spoiler: two schoolteachers strangling a girl no older than 12 to death because S{{he Knows Too Much}} and then making it look like suicide]]; another case has Conan and his friends being chased around by a SerialKiller in a library during the night.

* If ''Manga/DragonBall'' counts, so do the {{Anti Villain}}s of the second season 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.

* 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 "valious but unimportant sacrifices".
** Actually, in the original version he states them as "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.
