Suggestion: Enfant Terrible get usage counts

I think that we should replace the current image of Stewie just being Stewie with this one of Lottie from "The Curse of Millhaven". I think that it better illustrates this trope and how seriously fucked up it can often be, and Lottie is about the strongest example of an Enfante Terrible that you could find.

Both images are good, but I am afraid that at wiki size the Lottie one will lose important details.

[up] I agree.

No, the other one.
The composition of the picture doesn't allow for good cropping either, I believe.

I dunno, you could lose a lot of space on the top without impacting the image too much.

Not so sure about the sides, though.

We could always use this one if you want a funny image.

[up] Hmmmm...I wouldn't complain.

That one almost has more of a Creepy Child vibe. In the current image, it's clear the child is being (or trying to be, or causing) violence.

Except I think the Internets took a quick look into the story behind this particular memetic image. The kid wasn't at fault, IIRC.

Well, yeah, I didn't think she was, I'm pretty sure that that was a controlled burn started by the fire department as part of a training session with real fire. At least that's what it says on the Know Your Meme page. Still, the image became a meme because the smile on the girl's face makes anyone who sees the picture think that she's somehow responsible, so I think that it illustrates this trope in a funny way.

No, the other one.
Now, if you go to Know Your Meme to find information of a picture, I don't think that's a particularly good sign. Still, it's a good one.

Meh, I prefer Stewie.

What about the kid from Pet Semetary?

[up] Indeed, provided he doesn't fit another trope considering what he is at that point.
[up][up] I still prefer the disaster girl one, but I could live with that.

How about that scene in Metal Gear Solid 2 that shows Raiden as a kid holding a rifle after we learn he was a child solider?

[up]It doesn't sound too convincing. What's it look like?

I'll look for it, in the mean time, I found a good picture for anime anatomy if we don't have one:

I was wrong about what it shows, but the footage of that flashback is here if we can use any of it, there is a part where the subtitles say "child solider" over the pictures, it starts it 2:09

If it doesn't show, there are better suggestions.

Yeah, for some reason I was thinking he had a gun in that closeup picture of him.

Out of what have I'd say the Pet Cemetery kid, I still think we could do better though.

Now that I think about it, wasn't there an image pickin' thread for this fairly recently? I still think Stewie is fine.
