- This article is about humanoid children. For very young children, see baby. For young dragons, see dragon whelp. For young animals, see list of beasts with child models.
Many of the races on Azeroth have children. Some races have their own models for them, such as humans, orcs, draenei, blood elves, pandaren and nightborne, while others use shrunken version of the adult models, such as few dwarves, night elves, goblins and gnomes. Very few, if any, Forsaken, tauren, or jungle troll children have been seen in-game. Babies of all races are also shown in World of Warcraft.
Children are unkillable NPCs. They cannot be attacked and are not caught in Area of Effect attacks. Presumably, the designers feel that the possibility of killing children would not be appropriate game content. Games that allow violence against children would get higher content ratings in some countries.
While the children introduced in the original game and The Burning Crusade lacked voice clips (barring Anduin Wrynn) and remain as such to this day, pandaren and nightborne children do possess voice clips.
