*** Mario and Luigi also have no problems with ''killing'' a ''baby'' and are seen doing it 5 times in the ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'' games (2 Dino Piranhas, 2 Fiery Dino Piranhas and 1 Peewee Piranha) and in ''these'' cases (unlike the cases where the infant survives like Baby Bowser, Bowser Jr. and Jr. Troopa) they aren't being evil nor mean.

* The first two ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}s'' make you a Childkiller if [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin you killed a child]][[note]]Well, at least two[[/note]], which would cause almost everyone, [[EvenEvilHasStandards even other renounced scumbags and lowlifes]], to hate you. At least the children were scripted to flee when accidentally hit, so they rarely got killed by [=NPCs=]. In ''Fallout 2'', once you've progressed through the game long enough in an attempt to go to another settlement, you'll get an encounter that shows [[spoiler:an Enclave patrol]] coldly killing a small family, including an only child, which serves as an ominous {{Foreshadowing}} to their existence, who have no qualms in exterminating any being that isn't them or wasn't born in a Vault, and yes, that includes children. The ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' and ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' had invincible children (unless you use some mods...there is even a very famous one which implied '''eating a baby''' in exchange for the benefit of a perk which give you rads immunity, you can see this marvelous sickness [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7Jl61n3YY8 here]])

to:

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' the vampire Alva forces her thrall Laelette to murder a man's husband and young daughter as part of her plan to seduce him. Partially subverted by the fact that Laelette felt guilty about the whole situation and attempted turning the girl into a vampire and resurrecting her when that failed, but Alva had no qualms about killing the innocent.

* Odd as it may be, Mario. In ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3'' and ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'', the Koopalings are the QuirkyMiniBossSquad, while Bowser Jr is TheDragon in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine''; Mario treats them as gently as he does any other Boss (as in, not at all). Of course, they ''are'' nasty kids and you can partially blame Bowser for using them as henchmen, [[WhatTheHellHero but still...]]

* In ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', almost every single monster seeks to murder your child protagonist for no reason other than their race. Only one monster is actually treated as a not-perfect person for this.

to:

* In ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', almost this example:
-->''"it's a beautiful day outside. birds are singing, flowers are blooming. on days like these, [[EnfantTerrible kids like you]]... [[BaitAndSwitch Should be]] [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge burning in hell!]]"''
** While we're on the subject,
every single monster seeks character who isn't Toriel (who won't purposefully land a killing blow), Papyrus (who only weakens you to murder 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 child protagonist for no 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).
** Flowey stands out in this regard. He doesn't try to kill you at the intro because of the same
reason as the other than their race. Only one monster is actually treated as a not-perfect person monsters. He just does it [[ForTheEvulz for this.shits and giggles]].
