* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' has Mark Desmond (BLockbuster) as the same age as [[Comicbook/{{Shazam}} Billy Batson]] (and in the same school), to draw parallels with them both having a superstrong, adult alter ego.

* Inverted in ''Film/JemAndTheHolograms''. In the [[WestenAnimation/{{Jem}} cartoon]] all of the women are adults, though Kimber is still in her teens (either eighteen or nineteen). In the film they are very noticeably aged down into high schoolers and are explicitly referred to as under eighteen.

* Inverted in ''WebAnimation/DCSuperheroGirls'', where dozens of 20-something and 30-something characters are aged down into high schoolers. It isn't terribly consistent with who gets de-aged though, as Franchise/{{Batman}} and Franchise/{{Superman}} are adults yet Franchise/WonderWoman [[Franchise/TheFlash Barry Allen]], and [[Franchise/GreenLantern Hal Jordan]] are teenagers.

* Creator/DCComics ''Earth One'' line sees two examples as in ''ComicBook/SupermanEarthOne'', ComicBook/JimmyOlsen is presented as being ''older'' than Franchise/{{Superman}} rather than younger. Conversely, ''ComicBook/BatmanEarthOne'' makes Lucius Fox ''younger'' than Batman as opposed to older (especially notable considering ''Film/TheDarkKnightTrilogy'' and, following the example made by it, ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'' and ''Series/{{Gotham}}'' had Lucius as an old friend of Thomas Wayne before he and Martha were killed [[DeathByOriginStory on that fearful night]]).

** One of few characters to go the other way is Leslie Thompkins - her actress Creator/MorenaBaccarin was 35 when she started the role and is only about 8 months younger than Creator/BenjaminMcKenzie (James Gordon), while in the comics she's depicted as a contemporary of Alfred Pennyworth (played by 50-year-old Sean Pertwee) and old friend of Thomas and Martha Wayne. Pennyworth himself is a case of VagueAge concerning his age relative to Bruce Wayne's, but as a whole averts this trope.
