** Hollows are driven by desperate hunger to kill humans beginning with their closest family and then encompassing anyone: man, woman or child. The most heinous example was Shrieker who was so evil he was a serial killer before he became a hollow. Grand Fisher, Numb Chandelier and Nnoitra are other notable examples.



** Rose and Renji attacked [[spoiler:Mask de Masculine's kid sidekick James without hesitation as soon as they learned that [[ShootTheMedicFirst his cheers power up and heal Mask]].]]

Added DiffLines:

* Many villains in ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' do this.
** Shigaraki and the League of Villains ambushed U.A. to kill students in an attempt to lure out All Might. When Shigaraki was retreating, he wanted to kill at least one student just to spite All Might.
** Played with in regards to Stain. He initially gave Iida a chance to back off when he noticed how young Iida was, but when Iida calls himself Ingeinum, a hero, Stain decided to kill him to make an example of him. He also did not go easy on Midoriya and Todoroki during their fight.
** Overhaul has been repeatedly drawing out his own daughter Eri's blood in what appears to be a very painful process to [[spoiler: create a Quirk-erasing drug.]]

** 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...)

** [[spoiler: Donquixote 'Corazon' Rocinante]] at first appears to be this, but it turns out he is ultimately well-intentioned, because if he is cruel to children who try and seek refuge with his family, then hopefully they will run away and escape from [[TheSociopath his]] [[ManipulativeBastard older]] [[AxCrazy brother's]] [[TheCorrupter influence]]. If this means he has to throw a terminally ill ten-year-old from a two-story window, then so be it.

* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'': To all Apostles, humans are food, toys or a combination of both. Children? They [[EatsBabies eat babies]] so...
** Guts himself, at one point before fighting Rosine, had to take on her whole army of elves which was constituted of... young children she had previously kidnapped, brainwashed, and [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman turned into monsters]]. Plus his actual fight against Rosine herself (who's no older than 12), or that he used a still-human child as bait for those monster elves.

to:

* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'': ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'':
**
To all Apostles, humans are food, toys or a combination of both. Children? They [[EatsBabies eat babies]] so...
** Downplayed for Guts. He is not proud of the fact that he's sometimes harmed or endangered children in pursuit of his goals. In fact, he tends to be much more sympathetic toward children than he is toward adults because of his own abused childhood, and Jill is drawn to him despite his JerkassFacade in ''Lost Children'' because he's the only grown up who's ever protected her ''at all''. Just how much of a KickTheDog it comes across as and how Justified it seems depend on the situation:
*** The first time in his life that he caused the death of a child was his accidental killing of Adonis during the assassination of Count Julius, and his reaction to this was a horrified MyGodWhatHaveIDone that sent him into a HeroicBSOD. On the other hand he didn't raise any objections to participating in Griffith's plan to neutralize the queen, which involved blackmailing Minister Foss by [[IHaveYourWife taking his young daughter Elise hostage]], but Griffith kept his end of the bargain and returned her to her father unharmed afterwards.
*** After the Eclipse,
Guts himself, at one point before TookALevelInJerkass and spent two years hunting Apostles in a very ruthless manner. In ''The Guardians Of Desire'' when he's losing a CurbStompBattle against the Count, he only manages to win through the dirty trick of taking the Count's daughter Theresia as a human shield. When everything's over and [[spoiler:her father's dead, he gives Theresia a knife and encourages her to kill herself, which seems like a MoralEventHorizon for him, but then it turns out that he's actually pulling a ZeroApprovalGambit to make her hate him enough to want to keep living.]]
*** In ''Lost Children'', when Rosine and her pseudo elves show up and begin massacring Jill's town, Guts takes a little boy named Thomas who is running from the elves and uses him as live bait to lure them into a barn which he burns down with them inside. The poor boy is utterly traumatized, but Guts [[PetTheDog makes sure he's ok]] afterwards, and when the villagers come out of their houses and call what he did heinous, Guts [[ShamingTheMob shames them]] by reminding them that he actually saved Thomas' life while they were cowering behind locked doors. Things go FromBadToWorse when the burning corpses of the elves [[ThisWasHisTrueForm turn back into children]], making ''Guts'' look like a child-killing monster, so Guts puts a knife to Jill's throat and gets the villagers to let them through. From then on he turns up his JerkassFacade to make Jill stop following him for her own good, and alternates between [[PetTheDog saving her life]] and acting like he's [[KickTheDog prepared to kill her]] if she tries to get between him and Rosine.
*** Lastly, Guts is [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in taking the gloves off when
fighting Rosine, had monsters that [[WasOnceAMan used to take on her whole army of elves be children]], but which was constituted of... young are now trying to kill him and other humans. Rosine in ''Lost Children'', Nico in ''VideoGame/SwordOfTheBerserkGutsRage'', and Charles in ''VideoGame/BerserkMillenniumFalconHenSeimaSenkiNoSho'' are all Apostles who became EnfantsTerribles after they were DrivenToVillainy by the mistreatment they suffered from adults. Guts hates them as he would any other Apostle, and makes it his mission to kill them. It's not as if he doesn't feel any guilt, however, even if he tries to supress those emotions behind a JerkassFacade: When he sees that Collette's corpse is possessed by an evil spirit in episode 2, "the Brand", he goes into a HeroicBSOD and doesn't strike her down until she's already stabbed him in the side. In ''Lost Children'', when the elf children she had previously kidnapped, brainwashed, and [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman turned into monsters]]. Plus his actual fight against Rosine herself (who's no older than 12), or that he used burned in a still-human child barn came back as bait for those monster elves.crying ghosts at night, he lets himself go LaughingMad in order to get through the fight.

** 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]].]]
