TV Tropes says LW&C is probably the first and canonical example of the "Badass and Child Duo" trope (no-longer-recently) seen in The Mandalorian

Is it? I always thought it was based on a folk legend, but even if not, do earlier stories exist that focus on a wandering protagonist with a mostly-helpless child (not a sidekick or a damsel in distress)?

    At first, I was confused what The Mandalorian has to do with this question since it doesn't look like an anime based on common understanding (animation created in Japan), but I just realized it's only used as an example of the trope... – Aki Tanaka Nov 21 '19 at 19:38
