Child murderers are villains who have successfully killed a child (or several).
For many, the killing of people who are 12 years old or younger is not only an instant Moral Event Horizon crossing but also goes against the very concepts of what we see as basic humanity (even if the murderer is a child too).
For this reason, villains who are portrayed as willing murderers of children are reviled far more than those who kill teenagers and adults. They count as Pure Evil if they slaughter numerous children or do their kills in particularly atrocious ways, such as Laughing Jack.
In the past the killing of children was an extremely taboo subject matter in fiction, though it has become more common (but no less controversial). Child murderers only appear in the darkest of the dark fictions.
Note: do NOT add characters who only killed teenagers and/or adults in this category, as teenagers and adults do not count as children. Also, those villains must aim for children. Villains who accidentally killed children or do not seek to harm children in particular such as Cataclysms (unless the Cataclysm want to destroy a child-world) do not count.
