Anime & Manga
- Garrod Ran from After War Gundam X. At age 15 he's got a Shrinking Violet and an Action Girl after him, and some would also include a Shorttank who appears later… He chooses the Shrinking Violet.
- A young Romano in Axis Powers Hetalia is only willing to learn enough Spanish to demand kisses from Belgium and the Queen of Spain. Once Belgium takes him up on it, however, he finds himself at a total loss.
- Mizuiro from Bleach is known to be able to get women much older than him fawning over him with pretty much the snap of a finger. How many guys can you name that while in their teen years, can go with their girlfriend, who is an older woman, and nine of her friends, to Hawaii for the entire Summer vacation? James Bond, eat your heart out.
- Although the story that shows his point of view right before the series itself starts has him waking up one of those women's room, so he may just be a regular, younger-than-normal Casanova.
- Durarara!!'s Masaomi Kida, whose surname even begs for a punnerific joke involving this trope, hits on girls left, right, and center, though it's later revealed this behavior is almost entirely a front. His heart belongs to one girl and one girl alone.
- Gon from Hunter × Hunter, much to Killua's horror.
- Shippo of InuYasha has won the hearts of several young human girls. And according to the Inuyasha Profiles, he's only 7 and is therefore a child by both human and youkai standards.
- Yuichi Aizawa of Kanon had a full-blown harem of girls at age ten.
- Momochi from Level E. When it's revealed that the password to unlock the bracelets is the name of the girl they like, most of the kids say a name or just "nobody in particular." Momochi lists off the names of about twenty different girls, only to be told that his answer is invalid because he left some out. He lists off five more, and is told that there's still one left... Who turns out to be a girl he met in passing, and thus doesn't know her name. Then there's the time they helped out the twin-tailed mermaid. At the end of the episode, most of the kids offer their condolences. Momochi offers his phone number.
- Kaito Kuroba aka Kaito Kid from Magic Kaito was seen practicing his skills to become a smooth Lady Killer he'll eventually be in this flashback; it backfired but taught him a lesson when flirting.
- Negi of Mahou Sensei Negima! does this without even trying, or, indeed, even being aware of it. To paraphrase Chisame, it might be best to kill him before he hits puberty and starts noticing the attention he gathers with his every mannerism. He doesn't toss any of the girls away, of course, since he doesn't even realize he's seduced them (and most realize he doesn't, and thus don't end up too heartbroken) — and at least one is more open to the "harem" scenario than she'd like to admit.
Chisame: Here he comes! His natural gigolo talk! (Again?!)
- He actually has a Heroic B.S.O.D. every time someone pulls him aside and tells him he's accidentally seduced several (more) of his students (this has happened at least twice). The very next thing he does accidentally seduces the girl who had told him that.
Chamo: That's my aniki!
- As per Ash Ketchum's inability to age, he has been shown to have garnered a rather respectable number of young women's affections at the canon age of ten (which has been pushed for the past two decades). However, he's still dense as a rock. As of the most recent series, this canonical list includes Misty, Melody, Macey, Bianca/Latias, Anabel, Angie and now Serena is starting it.
- Gary Oak. He has his own cheerleadering squad, and Dawn was a fangirl of his.
- In Tenchi Muyo!, Tenchi has several adult women flirting with him, including two who seriously want his love (who is how serious about having him, though, is one of many things that changes from version to version.) One is even a distant relative of his (that's just how Juraians roll, as she explained.) He's seventeen. Of course, that's just going on the ages they look. A lot of the cast can measure their ages in three or four digits—which actually may explain it. What's 15 vs 18 mean to you when your kid sister is the Trope Namer for Really 700 Years Old? Tenchi Muyo! GXP is the same with its protagonist, Seina, who appears even younger than Tenchi.
- Kyubi's human form in Yo-Kai Watch is a handsome elementary aged boy who gives off this impression. He collects human heart energy however he can't win over Katie's heart.
- Superboy: His list of girlfriends is long, especially when you consider that he's, at most, two years old.
- DJ (Mark Sheppard) of the New X-Men, voted "class flirt" by his friends. Even as he lays dying after being blown up by the Purifiers he still takes the time to hit on the newly-arrived X-23 before succumbing to his wounds.

Films — Live Action
- The 1995 Larry Clark film Kids is about a 17-year-old Casanova who specializes in virgins. After his last conquest (13-years-old) discovers she's HIV-positive, she decides he has to be stopped before he passes the gift that keeps on giving on to another girl.
- In Don Juan DeMarco, the titular character claims to have discovered his vocation very early in life. He committed his first act of peeping-tomfoolery before he was old enough to walk.
- Leroy's kid brother in The Last Dragon fancies himself as this, to a somewhat creepy extent. He doesn't look a day over twelve, but his dialogue when talking about Laura—Leroy's Love Interest and a grown woman—is highly suggestive and seems to imply that he expects her to sleep with him.
- In Tadpole, Oscar is a Sartre-quoting genius that firmly believes in Not Growing Up Sucks as he's 15, but wants to be 40, has zero interest in girls his age for actually being his age, turns on and even sleeps with his step-mom's best friend and all the while crushes on his step-mom that seems wasted on his dad. He'd be an Insufferable Genius and The Scrappy had he not be so hilariously bad at trying to look mature like using dog hair as sideburns and trying to keep the secret of said sexual encounter from coming out said step-mom's friend's loose lips though he does get better and re-connect with the previously mentioned girl his age after she starts reading Sartre, too.
- The young boy in Malčna fantasizes that he is this to the character played by Monica Bellucci. This is more evident in the uncut European version than the severely edited US version.
- Exploits Of A Young Don Juan, an R-rated 1980s French Italian film starring Serena Grandi, is about a Kid-anova who sleeps his way through his household, including various maids. And yes, this being a European film, they do go there.
- The Adventures of Tom Sawyer's titular Tom Sawyer has been "engaged" twice.
- Olver from The Wheel of Time
- Rant, a.k.a. Buster Casey. Racked up a list of most of the females in his school before he left home. Notice the use of the word "females", not just the female students.
- Otto in Someone Else's War is very kind and polite, but always the first to appreciate a girl's beauty, quite vocally at that. (He's twelve.)
- In The Gerosha Chronicles, older Donte is generally ignored by women—except for his clingy girlfriend Candi. Donte, from the time he meets Candi, seems to have eyes only for her. But when Donte was much younger and long before he met Candi, such as in the timeline of the story Of Emeralds and Sapphires, young Donte seemed to have an Unwanted Harem. Nearly every girl in the neighborhood had a crush on him, though girls were invisible to him at the time. He was far too busy avenging Hector and trying to be a Morality Chain for the Sapphire King.
- Sunny's brother Chukwu in Akata Witch, to the point that Sunny wrote an essay about it. He struck out hard with Sunny's friend Chichi, though.
- Swedish writers Anders Jacobsson and Sören Olsson usually have protagonists, who like to see themselves as "girl charmers" and think about girls all the time. Sune is seven years old in the first book about him and never grows older than eleven within his series. Bert is eleven years old in the first book about him and never grows older than sixteen within his series.
- Do a bit of math, and you'll see Oberyn Martell from A Song of Ice and Fire was 12-years-old when he fathered his first daughter, Obara. (He's 42 by the time she's almost 30.) He was also found in bed with the paramour of one of his brother's men at 16.
- Tywin Lannister's uncle Jason Lannister was this when he was younger. He had a daughter with a serving girl when he was 13, then shortly after was forced to marry a noble girl he got pregnant (she died giving birth to their son). After that, his family forced him to settle down and marry a woman twice his age, with whom he ended up having six kids.
Live Action TV
- Drake of Drake & Josh. Very much so. An official count numbers the girls he's shown dating in the series to be over 60. You will never see him dating a girl you saw him date in a previous episode. Add that to the fact that he is shown dating a girl nearly every episode and you have yourself a lot of dumped girls.
- In one episode, we see him with three girls: a girlfriend from a previous episode, his current girlfriend that was introduced in another episode, and a previously unknown girlfriend.
- The Spiritual Successor to Drake & Josh, iCarly has Spencer fitting a Kidanova more than The Casanova despite being in his late 20's, because of the shows' Kid Com genre, Spencer never doing more than kissing the girl (on camera at least), and because he's not a jerk. The closest the actual Power Trio has is Carly, who picks up a love interest a few times a season.
- Skeeter of Cousin Skeeter
- Shawn of Boy Meets World. One would assume he's the regular kind of The Casanova, however he reveals while displaying his knowledge of Death by Sex that he is still, technically, a virgin.
- Eric too in the early seasons.
- Subverted in How I Met Your Mother with Matthew Panning, "the Stud of Port Richland Middle School", who claimed to have had sex with a hundred girls by the time he was 12. It's obvious to everyone that he's lying, except for Barney, who makes it the goal of his adult life to sleep with 200 girls just to show Panning up.
- Every single live-action show on Disney Channel seems to have at least one.
- During season 2 of Degrassi, when JT who's 13 at the time instantly starts making plans on dating the most popular older high school girls he can catch.
- Dicky, a 10-year-old boy, in Nicky Ricky Dicky And Dawn fashions himself as one, though he is not very successful. In fact, one time a girl said yes to him, he ran away.
- Older Than Radio: Mozart's opera The Marriage of Figaro has a boy, Cherubino, who is old enough to get shipped off to the army but young enough to be a Cross Dressing Voice role, and spends the show charming every woman he can get his hands on. He ends up in a Beta Couple (with Barbarina, the local ingenue) by the end of the night. Lampshaded by his song "Voi chi sapete", in which he explains that he loves being in love with all the ladies around and it's a natural thing to him. And, in the original plays by Beaumarchais it goes further: the sequel The Guilty Mother says he's the father of Countess Rosina's child.
- "Stacy's Mom" by Fountains Of Wayne is sung from the point of view of a kid who believes himself to be this.
- Bluebottle from The Goon Show wants to be this, and often declares that he will use his Comically Small Bribe to seduce various girls, but his sexual fantasies always end without any sex happening (except in one case where the woman he's fantasising about is implied to end up with Eccles inside his fantasy), so it isn't actually clear whether he actually has any success with the girls. With No Continuity, it is probably easiest to say that the answer varies.
- Zidane from Final Fantasy IX is 16-years-old, and even though his love interest Garnet shares his age, he hits on much older women as well. In Dissidia: Final Fantasy he hits on Shantotto, who, while tiny, is somewhere in her 30s.
- Shantotto's hardly his only victim. He hits on everyone from Tifa "Boobs of Steel" Lockhart, who's in the 20-23 range, to Cosmos, the Goddess of Harmony. Then there's his choice to tackle Garland over a gap that few of the characters can cross without aerial evasion abuse note because he "didn't feel like fighting a lady"—referring to Ultimecia, the time witch.
- Nils Lutefisk from Psychonauts is one of these. He claims it's because his parents let him watch R-rated movies.
- Fire Emblem:
- Roy from Fire Emblem 6 is just 15-years-old, but he can have up to six possible love interests: his gorgeous ex-teacher, his childhood friend, a cheery Lethal Chef, a silent female nomad, a cute mercenary girl and a shy half-human, half-dragon shaman girl.
- From Fire Emblem 8, we have:
- Ewan. This redheaded, cheery magic student can't be older than 15, but he can date and eventually marry Amelia, a sweet girl who's at least two or three years older than he is. More importantly, in his support conversation with Ross he claims to have "a lot" of girlfriends, though we have to take his word on it.
- 15-year-old Erk the Mage has three possible girlfriends (Serra, Priscilla and Nino). Though, he is very anti-social and even laments his inability to talk to girls at one point.
- The aforementioned Priscilla is no slouch either: she can have a Chivalrous Pervert, a Dragon Rider, a Fragile Speedster and Erk himself after her, and she's 16. Too bad only Erk can get to marry her: all of the other guys are doomed.
- Also, Serra. She's 16 too, and not only she can marry Erk, but she also has romantic endings with Matthew (a Guile Hero Trickster who recently lost his girlfriend) and Sir Oswin (a Younger Than They Look Genius Bruiser who is twice her age.)
- Dew from Fire Emblem 4 may have them all beat: he can marry and have kids with most of the women in the player's army (and not in the future tense, either). His exact age is unclear, but definitely early-to-mid teens. (A manga adaption gave his age as 14!) And several of the girls are older than he is! (15-year-old Raquesis and 14-year-old Sylvia are around his age, but Briggid and Adean are at least in their mid-to-late teens.)
- Poo from Earthbound is implied to be this. He has fangirls in his hometown, anyway.
- Ryoji Mochizuki of Persona 3 earned an Instant Fanclub the moment he transferred over to Gekkoukan High, mostly for his mysterious air and boyish looks. This makes the Chivalrous Pervert extremely happy, since he already hits on any and all women in range—sometimes risking life and limb, such as when he propositions Mitsuru during her Heroic B.S.O.D. and then, immediately after being rebuked, asks Yukari out on a date at the red-light district.) He even hits on Aigis, whose response is… unexpected. In Persona 3 Portable, though, he becomes a Ladykiller in Love with the Female Protagonist.
- Persona 4 gives us Teddie, who may call his continuous date-hunting "trying to score", dialog however makes it rather clear that he has no idea what the term actually means. Add to that the fact that his true age (depending on where you start counting) is possibly less than one year, and you get this trope in spades.
- Palom from Final Fantasy IV must be some sort of record; he's a 5-year-old.
- 15-year-old protaganist Jimmy Hopkins from Bully definitely qualifies. By the end of the game, he's made out with nearly every girl in the school. It's also possible to make out with several of the boys, but that's not required.
- Cactus Donathan, The Casanova of Instant Classic, gets some backstory into his ways using this trope in Brothers Donathan - Part Five.
- Ryan from Everyday Heroes tries to be this. not always successfully.
- Alex of World of Fizz is definitely a prepubescent pervert, though none of his crushes (a classmate, his sister's girlfriend, the school nurse…) have shown much interest in him.
- Jake English of Homestuck is desired romantically by all three of the other main characters from his universe. At least part of this is that he is (as far as they know) the only viable option (it's certainly not because he's so suave).
- The web novel Seeking a Sweet Bewitching Kiss as part of the Girls Love series Sono Hanabira Ni Kuchizuke Wo contains a female and lesbian version of this trope. Elementary schoolgirl lesbian Runa, has all the girls in her class as well as her teacher (a woman in her early twenties) enamored with her. Recently, she has gotten her own visual novel released, in which she kind of subverts the trope by having sex with her teacher.
- The Nostalgia Critic has reminded people that he was an early bloomer when it came to sex. Judging by his Dark and Troubled Past, it may have not been a good thing.
- Among Zorian's classmates in Mother of Learning is Benisek, a boy whose primary occupation at school is the pursuit of girls.
- Jonesy in 6teen is one of these, but he fails to get the girls just as much as he fails to get a stable job.
- Alvin of Alvin and the Chipmunks. Usually he is very successful with (human) girls.
- The title character of Camp Lazlo is wrongfully accused of being one of these by Commander Hoohah at least once.
- Code Lyoko:
- Odd Della Robbia. He even managed to get somewhere with his friends' love interests, if only at a stretch (a platonic dance date and a Fake-Out Make-Out for Yumi and Aelita, respectively). The only girl he hasn't (willingly!) dated is the Alpha Bitch, and even then there's enough UST between them to rival Ulrich and Yumi. Amusingly, it comes back to bite him later when his reputation has gotten around and he suddenly can't get a date to save his life. Part of the problem is that his feet stink; one girl had to continuously douse herself in perfume to just survive the date.
- Let's not forget Jérémie's attempt at making a Polymorphic Clone of himself. That clone is Odd-like in terms of romance.
- In The Fairly OddParents, Timmy apparently once had relations with a grown woman named Carly at some party he doesn't remember due to Laser-Guided Amnesia. She seemed perfectly fine with it.
- In another episode, he tried to go after a grown hula-girl during a vacation in Hawaii.
- Mabel from Gravity Falls is a a female version (who's way too innocent and unsuccessful to be a Fille Fatale, though she often 'tries' to be one), obsessed with the idea of a 'summer romance' and latching onto some random boy pretty much every episode. The fact that half of them turn out to be evil hasn't dissuaded her yet.
- Techno Bear from Harvey Beaks is a more sympathetic version of this trope.
- James Bond Jr. seems to have learned more than just fighting skills from his uncle.
- Johnny Test. So far, this 11 year-old has managed to charm the class tomboy, the school's queen bee, an alien Rebellious Princess five years older than him, and a cute Daddy's Little Villain (literally, since it turned out she was the villain, not her dad). And possibly Gil.
- Phineas and Ferb:
- Ferb makes a quip about being this at one point, but since the only girl he ever shows genuine interest in is Vanessa, he could have been joking.
- So far, Baljeet has gone on a romantic cruise with his childhood friend Mishti, actually kissed a female friend named Wendy (who seemed to like it), and managed to unwittingly become the crush of Fireside Girl Ginger.
- In the Tiny Toon Adventures episode "Prom-ise Her Anything" Dizzy is this combined with Mars Needs Women and manages to snag a grown human woman as a date.
- This kid for sure.
- This kid definitely qualifies.
- Steven Fernandez, a young American skateboarder who sports the nickname "Baby Scumbag", has gained notoriety for posting raunchy (albeit tongue-in-cheek) YouTube videos featuring him cavorting with scantily clad adult women as well as advice videos on how to pick up women.
