[[spoiler: And then there's Neptunes Sun, which [[HereWeGoAgain turns Sandy into a scientifically-accurate squirrel]].]]

* In ''ComicBook/WonderWoman'' #9, Professor Zool's evolution machine is used to turn the gorilla Giganta into a human. However, the machine later malfunctions and Wonder Woman and her friends are de-evolved into earlier human forms. This effect seemingly extends across all of Earth. the rest f the issue is devoted to finding the machine and reversing the effects. Oddly, history is shown as being subject to evolution as well, with humanity being destined to pass through particular phases and certain points in its evolution.

* ''VideoGame/StarControl3'' reveals that the Precursors who disappeared millenia ago did not, in fact, leave the galaxy; they devolved themselves to escape a galaxy-wide eradication of sapient life. At one point in the game, the player has to find one of these devolved Precursors and put it in an "un-devolver" artifact to get an InfoDump of its genetic memory, [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext or something like that]]. [[spoiler: The devolved form turns out to be a cow-like creature that's frequently encountered on former Precursor worlds, and is often [[FridgeHorror used as food]] by those worlds' current occupants.]] How the devolved creatures avoided evolving into something completely different in the intervening milllenia is not mentioned.

** In "[=UFoe=]" when Darkwing insults a highly advance alien race, they punish him by de-evolving him into a Neanderthal.Neanderthal, then a fish and then a protozoa. Launchpad convinces them to change him back. This also settles the main villain of the episode's faith as [[spoiler:is turn into an alien fish at the end.]] The funniest part is how the ray affects a robot: it turns it into a toaster.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Hearthstone}}'', Shamans get the ''Devolve'' card from ''Mean Streets of Gadgetzan''. Funnily enough, the artwork displays the BigBadEnsemble from the expansion pack, devolved into Murlocs.
