** While we're on the subject, every character who isn't Toriel (who won't purposefully land a killing blow), Papyrus (who only weakens you to capture, not kill), and Alphys (who doesn't fight you [[spoiler:until she becomes a lost soul]]), as well as the shopkeeper and a couple of other npcs, attacks the player with the intent to kill on their own at some point. Justified because [[spoiler:they need your soul to leave the Underground]], along with not exactly being on friendly terms with Humanity to begin with (though some are rather reluctant to kill you anyways).

* In ''VideoGame/{{Tyranny}}'', [[EvilOverlord Kyros]]' laws [[EvenEvilHasStandards makes this illegal]]; the young are to be protected. At least, if they're citizens of Kyros' empire. In the Blade Grave, on the other hand, [[spoiler:ending the Edict of Storms, which will otherwise continue to devastate the land and kill thousands, requires the eradication of the ''entire'' Regent bloodline. Including an infant still in her crib. Forcing the Fatebinder to [[VorpalPillow suffocate the child]] or have a companion end their life... unless they can find [[LoopholeAbuse an alternative]].]]

** And then there's the [[WouldHurtAChild pragmatic]] lot of players who decide that having somebody lounge about in your fortress, [[TheLoad eating your food and drinking your booze]] without doing any work for 12 years just isn't worth it...

* In ''VideoGame/CrusaderKings'', not only is assassinating children possible, it even comes with [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything special text]] to fit. It's often a simple, if brutal, way to clear up the line of succession so one's own character can inherit.

* Dr. Ivo Robotnik, the Big Bad of ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog''. He not only shoves little animals into robots, but his worst enemies also happen to be children. Even not counting Sonic himself (who is often placed at 15, though he's implied to be younger in the first few games), he is fighting 8-year olds and 12-year olds on occasion. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] that they are children with [[StockSuperpowers Superhuman abilities,]] and rather mature-acting children at that, but still.

* ''Fallout'''s spiritual predecessor ''VideoGame/{{Wasteland}}'' allows you to attack some mutant kids at Highpool [[DisproportionateRetribution who laugh at you for falling into a stream]]. As you kill them, more kids will appear and the atmosphere will get more and more creepy, ending with [[YouBastard a puppy crawling into a dead child's arms]]. You're then attacked by the [[LaserGuidedKarma Red Ryder]] and his [[Film/AChristmasStory Red Ryder Air Rifle (with compass in the stock]], and once you kill him the camp [[GhostTown suddenly looks as though it had been abandoned for years]].

** Asgore may be willing to hurt children, but he clearly hates doing it. When he faces the main character, he refuses to look them in the eyes out of shame.

If you block the attack, he will run away. Returning home however, you find the bodies of your wife and kid, along with the coworkers' corpse.
