** One episode of ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' had Gorilla Grodd construct a "devolution" ray (his own words) that turned humans into humanoid gorillas... including Comicbook/{{Superman}}, who is not human at all. After his plan failed even Lex Luthor [[WhoWritesThisCrap complained how stupid the whole thing sounded]] and [[KlingonPromotion used it as the pretext to take over the Legion sooner than he planned.]]

* ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'''s Kanohi Ignika, the Legendary [[MaskOfPower Mask of Life]]. Having been sentient, it was able to do this to others by itself, without a user. It can also do the opposite, ''increasing'' a creature's [[EvolutionaryLevels evolutionary level]], because hey, it's the Mask of ''Life''.

** Then in another episode, Dr. Zygote uses the ray again to further evolve himself into a more advanced form, from a big brained alien, to a lemurian, to a floating giant brain, and finally into a flash of light. At the end, he [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence "evolved beyond good and evil" and left]]. There was a subversion along the way, as he became a [[strike:chicken]] fowl-like humanoid similar to Max's [[TheObiWan Obi-Wan]] Virgil, who mentioned humanity will find the form enjoyable, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JmB5NDeziMk much to Max's surprise.]]

* ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}} International'' adventure ''Hot Rods of the Gods''. After Meera undergoes his magical power-up he uses the tablet to fire a red devolvo ray at the Ghostbusters. When hit by this ray a person becomes hairy, has their arms grow to knee-length, their jaw juts out like a stereotypical "ape man" and their intelligence decreases somewhat. The effect wears off in about 30 minutes.
