Added DiffLines:

* Series/PunkyBrewster didn't start off this way, but she showed wisdom as the series went on. She reunited her teacher with his long-missing mother, helped a special-needs student come out of her shell to display a hidden talent, and during career day at school aspired to be an astronaut (this episode following the Challenger disaster which was its focus). Punky lost some of her wisdom when the show went into first run syndication as she shed her tomboy image and started seeing boys, but she would eventually learn from her mistakes come episode's end.


* In ''Manga/AssassinationCalssroom'', the two young boys at the nursery act unusually mature for their age.

Added DiffLines:

* Irci from ''VideoGame/BoxxyQuestTheGatheringStorm''. Her exact age isnt given, but shes clearly a young child. Shes had to mature quickly, since her older sister Til is a nervous wreck and their parents are [[AmbiguouslyAbsentParent nowhere to be seen]]. Its implied that Irci has largely been the one raising Til, instead of the other way around.


* Jack in ''Fanfic/CaveStoryVersusIMMeen''. Probably one of the smartest fictional characters in years, yet also one of the saddest and funniest. Not to mention the most [[BadassAdorable badass and adorable.]]

-->'''First Boy:''' The action looks so real.
-->'''Second Boy:''' Yeah...it's much more stimulating than the [[TakeThat Disney monopolized Hollywood]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''FanFic/TheRavensPlan'', due to the plot's mental time-travel hook, the Starks are ''very'' disquieted to arrive at House Umber and find that [[spoiler:Ned Umber]] is a 2 year old with the mind of at least a teenager. He also mentions that the same can probably be said for [[spoiler: Lyanna Mormont]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Taken}}'': As demonstrated by her narration of the first six episodes before her formal introduction, Allie Keys is an extraordinarily wise, intelligent and insightful nine-year-old due to her part alien heritage and the accompanying PsychicPowers. Her grandfather Jacob Clarke also exhibited these characteristics to a lesser extent. Allie has a far better understanding of life and human nature than people several times her age. For instance, in "God's Equation", her mother Lisa Clarke's bandmate Denny tells her that when he wakes up every morning, all that he can see is the end of the day. As a result, he doesn't see the point of even getting up in the morning. Allie then asks him if he thinks about the end of a song when he is performing. He says that he has to focus all of his attention of the part of the song that he is playing or he would never get through it. Without Allie saying anything, Denny then realizes that she is telling him to adopt the same attitude to life. Later in the episode, Allie is able to defuse the HostageSituation by helping Ray Morrison to realize that he is so angry at the world because he was [[DomesticAbuse sexually molested]] when he was eight and it was easier to blame aliens for everything bad that had happened to him than to face his problems. She then allows the UFO project to take her into custody in order to protect Charlie and Lisa and prevent a bloodbath, even though she was more than powerful enough to escape. In the final episode "Taken", [[spoiler: Allie makes the difficult decision to join the aliens [[IJustWantToBeNormal in spite of her almost overwhelming desire to be a normal little girl]]. She knows that it is the only way to prevent people from being killed in the confrontation between the military and the abductees who came to protect her. Allie also has the wisdom to realize that Charlie and Lisa's plan to escape to UsefulNotes/SouthAmerica will not work since the government would only find them again.]]


** Taken even further in season 4, wherein AJ is frequently found having complex discussions about morality and survival with Clementine. While this is partially justified by AJ having to grow up fast in a post-apocalyptic world, the game acts like Clementine's knowledge and experience are what make her smarter than AJ, not the fact that AJ is ''a five year old boy'' whose brain is nowhere near as developed as a sixteen year old's. Even if you try to[[spoiler: refuse AJ the right to make life and death decisions in episode 4, the game forces Clem to retract her choice once she's no longer under the player's control, admitting this five year old boy knows what he's doing.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Famous pop singer, Billie Eilish has always been mature for her age, even before she became famous. She has a nihilistic point of view on life, especially being well-spoken and eloquent for her age.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/LovelyLovecraft'': Howard studies astronomy and chemistry and plans to write professionally. As his tale continues, he uses the Necronomicon effectively and debates responsibility and dreams with Iranon. Adult characters remark favorably on his calmness and understanding even in comparison to his elders.


** Well to be fair, in the manga, it was two random spies that Weed wanted to be merciful to after they begged for their lives. These dogs did not actively try to kill Weed or his comrades. The anime for some reason replaced the spies with the assassins [[spoiler:Thunder and Lector]]. Also in the manga, it is directly shown that Gin had always agreed with Weed's stance on killing, and him seemingly trying to kill [[spoiler:Hougen]] was actually a test to see if Weed was a true leader. In the anime, it is the same way but it's not as clearly explained. It's also worth noting that Gin let Sniper live in GNG even though the doberman tried to kill him and his comrades multiple times.
