* [[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).]]]].

* ''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]].

* While it's never actually shown, in ''Videogame/Portal2'', during the section where Wheatley steers your Relaxation Chamber through the Relaxation Center, you can see shipping labels on other rooms, which (among other things) label the occupant of that chamber as either an adult or a child. This implies that there ''were'' children in the Relaxation Center, meaning [=GLaDOS=] had probably used children as test subjects in the past. Considering the deadliness of her tests, children probably also died horrific deaths at her metaphorical hands.

* ''VideoGame/TheWitcher3'' offers a vast amount of morally repugnant characters, but one ranking relatively high on the list would be [[spoiler:Jonna]]. A local man named Lothar goes to Geralt for help lifting a curse from his young son that was slowly killing him. After doing some investigating, Geralt learns that [[spoiler:Jonna]], the local herbalist, cursed Lothar's son after Lothar refused to continue cheating on his wife with her [[{{Yandere}} in an attempt to win him back]]. Geralt can either transfer the curse to [[spoiler:Jonna]], killing her, or convince Lothar to go back to her so she would lift it herself.
