And really, there is nothing more innocent and cruel than a child.
~ Jet (about the possibility and fear of evil children) in Cowboy Bebop.

Many characters do not need to be fully grown to practice villainy. Some are already born villainous or, if not, get possessed, brainwashed, or influenced in their childhoods (e.g. Max). The following villains listed are those who are supposed to be under the age of thirteen or take the appearance of children (e.g. Pride and Zhan Tiri).

Teenagers are not to be listed under this category. While teenagers are commonly mistaken for children, these two age groups are actually very different from each other. Please add teens to the Teenagers category.

Also, do not include adult or teenage villains who are shown to have been heroic or, at least, neutral during their childhood (e.g. Darth Vader and Eustace Bagge). Other characters who can't apply on this category are those who possess the body of a child for their nefarious plans (e.g. Bill Cipher and Edward Scarka). Only villainous children belong in this category.

Typically, the acts that most kids villains commit are not as atrocious as the ones committed by adult villains that warrants them being considered Pure Evil. Likewise, they can also lack a moral agency due to their young minds. However, there are notable, yet rare, exceptions if they still have a moral agency and meet all criteria, such as Henry Evans, Roger and Luke Lerner.
