* Near the end of ''VideoGame/Armikrog'', the main antagonist is revealed to be Tommynaut's brother Vognaut, who's been horribly mutated by his greed. Vognaut abducts P, the baby Tommynaut has been caring for, and plans to drain the latent power from inside her for himself; he also states that he doesn't care if the process kills her, instead saying her power is "wasted on her."

** Early on in ''VideoGame/PokemonXDGaleOfDarkness'', a thug working with Cipher called Zook threatens Michael and his younger sister with a Shadow Zangoose. And in the end [[spoiler: [[BigBad Grandmaster Greevil]]'s son Ardos]] attempts to talk his father into blowing up the base with [[PlayerCharacter Michael]] still on it after his defeat. Needless to say, it doesn't work.
** In ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'', [[spoiler:Ghetsis]] has no qualms having [[OlympusMons Kyurem]] [[spoiler:''attack the player character with huge freakin' icicles''. To note, the player character is [[VagueAge roughly]] 13-16 years old. Good thing N [[BigDamnHeroes showed up to save them at the last second]]]].

** Anybody in the ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' universe will have no trouble with fighting the main characters, most of whom are teenagers[[note]]Terra and (possibly) Aqua being the only playable characters over 17[[/note]], so they have to take all their opponents seriously, so it's all fair play. [[spoiler: Master Xehanort even manages to kill one of them (Sora) and steal the body of another (Terra), though the former gets revived.]]

* [[WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas Lock, Shock, and Barrel]] serve as bosses in several ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' games, and Sora (or Roxas) will have no trouble fighting them. It's justified, considering their [[BrattyHalfPint bratty]] natures...

* [[spoiler:[=FunFrock=]]] in ''VideoGame/LittleBigAdventure 2'' initially uses kidnapped children in order to force the wizards to co-operate with his scheme. When Twinsen invades [[VeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon his lair]], he decides to drop the children into a volcano in order to make Twinsen cross the DespairEventHorizon.

* 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 (heck, Cream from the ''VideoGame/SonicAdvanceTrilogy'' is only ''6''). [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] that they are children with [[StockSuperpowers Superhuman abilities,]] and rather mature-acting children at that, but still.
** On the Game Gear, Eggman truly pumps this up a notch in ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2''. [[spoiler: It is implied that Tails dies at Robotnik's hands if you fail to collect all the emeralds before Scrambled Egg Zone]].

* 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, and is [[ShootTheDog sometimes the only to prevent, say, a civil war that would tear the realm apart and kill tens of thousands]].

** In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' there are children found in both the Prydwen and the Institute, [[spoiler: and you're forced to blow up one or both of them depending on who you side with. Also, when blowing up the Institute, you can leave the young [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots synth]] version of Shaun to burn, which gets you some [[WhatTheHellHero harsh comments]] from your faction's tech specialist (unless you sided with the Brotherhood and tell Proctor Ingram that he's a synth, [[JustAMachine making her ok with abandoning him).]]]].
