* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'': The human villain Nanosec found himself at the same situation of the above mentioned Speed Demon. Fortunately for him, he teamed up with and started dating the villainess Slo-Mo, who could use her time-manipulation to reverse his aging.

* The [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demons]] of ''Webcomic/SlightlyDamned'' have the ability to enter a monstrous OneWingedAngel form with vastly increased size, strength and magic but doing this causes them to both [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity become mindless killers]] and will kill them in a short time due to how much stress it puts on their bodies. They can [[TakingYouWithMe trigger it willingly]] but as we've seen with [[spoiler:Lazuli]] it can also happen involuntarily if they receive fatal (but not immediately lethal) injuries.
** However there is a way to get around the fatal part, by drinking [[spoiler:the [[{{Superstrength}} red]] [[AlchemyIsMagic Rainbow Reverie potion]]]] they will only be berserk for a short time and when it wears off they change back [[PowerStrainBlackout exhausted]] but alive.

* In ''Manga/HunterXHunter'', Kurapika learns how to activate his [[SuperMode Emperor Time]] ability at will instead of only when under large emotional stress, but it will remove one hour from his lifespan for each second it's used in this way.

A story arc spanning Marvel Comics' Avengers issues #281-285 saw the team up against the Greek gods, who blamed Earth's Mightiest Heroes for injuries team member Hercules sustained in battle. One of their main allies on Mount Olympus was the Titan Prometheus, who sought to quell the conflict by waking Hercules from his injury-induced coma, imparting part of his own immortal lifeforce to do so. The results were reflected in new wrinkles on the face of the previously ageless Prometheus, as well as grey hairs.

*** Also in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'', after the events of ''A Realm Reborn'', it turns out that [[spoiler:Y'shtola was trapped in the Lifestream. While it seems at first that the rescue effort has gone off without any more hitches than usual, it turns out that she's slowly being drained of Aether - and was furthermore blinded, so every time she tries to cast magic or even ''see'', she's bringing herself closer to death.]]

** Several spells caused aging as a side effect of using them, including ''Gate'', ''Haste'' and ''Wish''. Varies from edition to edition. Generally such costs are much more common in Second Edition then the Third.

** He also was healed from ''uncurable'' poison. Cost? Ten years of his lifespan (and an estimated 2 Day's of torture by having the cells in his body destroyed by poison and healed in rapid succession) in exchange for boosting his survival rate from 0% to a measly 3%. (Luffy beat the poison in 20 hours Instead of the estimated 2 days, did they mention that the survival was dependent on the Will to live?)

** The Evil Containment Wave drains a ''massive'' amount of the user's life force, which means it kills most people who use it.

** The Evil Containment Wave drains a ''massive'' amount of the user's life force, which means it kills most people who use it. Again, if you've got a lot of energy to burn it doesn't really matter, as Goku practiced it multiple times without any notable problems, and Trunks and Future Mai didn't suffer any negative effects [[spoiler:when sealing Zamasu]].



* In ''Manga/FairyTail'', Ultear's ability to travel through time works this way. [[spoiler: However, using it results in her rapidly aging to become an old woman, and to add insult to injury, it takes her entire lifespan to go back one minute. Fortunately, that one minute is all that the rest of the cast needs to turn the ongoing predicament in their favour.]]

to:

* In ''Manga/FairyTail'', there are several types of powerful Magic that burn through the user's lifespan if overused.
** Angel's [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Angel Magic]] works by creating golden coins, each one representing a portion of her lifespan and a cost of "10". By creating and using a certain number of coins and cost, she can [[SummonMagic summon angels]] to fight on her behalf, but not only does this drain her lifespan with each use, if they're destroyed she suffers [[AgonyBeam extreme pain]]. She doesn't care at first, [[DeathSeeker and even relishes the idea of someday "dying and becoming an angel in Heaven"]], but overuse of her Magic and [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech Gray calling her out on her death wish and desire to throw her life]] eventually turns her "angels" into {{Eldritch Abomination}}s that try to consume her and Gray, and she's only saved by Gray destroying them and another ally "refunding" her lifespan. She starts being more careful after that, and even seemingly figures out how to summon angels without using the coins.

* In ''{{Sorcery101}}'', both Magic and Sorcery takes a heavy toll on the user's health, with the result that neither Mages nor Sorcerers ever get particularly old. (It's more of a 'Will drop dead around 60-70' thing than an 'unlikely to see their 30th birthday' type thing, but still an unpleasant fact.) The main character, Danny, is a Sorcerer, but he's safe from these consequences due to being the [[{{Familiar}} Blood Bond]] of a powerful vampire. His teacher IS a vampire, and thus also safe. Main character Ally, however, is a Mage with no added advantages, so...

** In ''IDreamOfAJeanieBottle'', a genie can die if they overuse their powers on a broad (read: "global") scale for too long, presumably at the behest of their master. It is heavily implied that the last known genie to suffer this fate was [[spoiler: Eva Braun.]]

* MerlinsShopofMysticalWonders (best known for its MysteryScienceTheater3000 episode), states that all magic artificially ages the user. The finale to the first story in the anthology culminates in the magic user needing to concoct a youth potion to counteract the effects.

* ''Manga/DGrayman'' : The parasitic-type exorcist suffer this because their weapon is fused with their organism. So every time they fight, this uses their life energy and reduce their lifespan.
**Kanda's regeneration ability refuses his lifespan too. As well as using the upper illusions of his innocence that directly convert his lifespan in power. The fifth illusion is said to "sublimate his soul".
