** 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.

* In ''VideoGame/OneChance'', if you spend the last day where everyone is alive and well at home then helping to create a cure, [[spoiler:a scientist will try to murder you as all the other had already died]]. 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.

* 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).
* In ''VideoGame/PokemonXDGaleofDarkness'' [[spoiler: 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.

* Dr. Ivo Robotnik, the Big Bad of ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog''. He shoves little animals into robots, but the real kicker, ([[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} if you don't]] [[WhatTheHellPlayer give a care about animal cruelty]]) is who he is fighting against. His worst enemies are CHILDREN. Not counting Sonic himself, he is fighting 8-year olds and 12-year olds on occasion. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] that they all have [[StockSuperpowers Superhuman abilities,]] but still.

* All the protagonists in the ''VideoGame/{{Mother}}'' series are children (so obviously, plenty of the enemies that battle them will be adults), but perhaps the most notable specific example of this trope is in ''[=EarthBound=]'' when a bunch of policemen beat up Ness ''just because he wants to leave his hometown.''
* ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}'': [[spoiler:Not only does Porky try to kill the 12-year-old Lucas on a number of occasions, he also takes his twin brother, mind controls him, makes him a cyborg, and intimately results in his death.]] Just so you know, this game is rated ''Japan's equivalent of E''. They must have ''very'' high standards over there.

* 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.
