* ''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.

** Season Three has Badger, who shows himself to have no problem with murdering children in cold blood [[spoiler:including Javier's niece Mariana, which the majority of players agree makes bashing his skull until the remains are unrecognizable in Episode 3 all the more cathartic.]]

** 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]].]]

* 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.
