* ''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.]]

* There was a weapon in ''WesternAnimation/{{Dinosaucers}}'', able to turn the pro- and antagonists, who are anthropomorphic sentient dinosaurs, into non-anthropomorphic, apparently non-sentient, and much bigger dinosaurs.

* There was a weapon in In ''WesternAnimation/{{Dinosaucers}}'', able to turn the pro- and antagonists, who are protagonized by anthropomorphic sentient dinosaurs, the good guys were able to deevolve to their original, [[CaptainObvious non-anthropomorphic]], dinosaurian form at will and retaining their sentience and intelligence. There was also a weapon able to cause them the same, but this time into non-anthropomorphic, apparently non-sentient, and also much bigger dinosaurs.dinosaurs.

* ''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.

** In one episode, a mad scientist named Dr. Zygote develops a ray that devolves anything to their prehistoric state. A bunch of human tourists become apes, Max's pet lizard becomes a dinosaur, and Virgil (a lemurian who is supposed to be the next step in human evolution) gets turned into a pterodactyl (?!) Later it's used by Dr. Zygote to turn a bunch of devolved mutated monsters into primordial ooze. He surmises that the ray "reversed their evolutionary path to the final quagmire, an evolutionary dead-end"--which really makes no sense at all. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owZqBj0vLXU&feature=related

* ''Wiki/SCPFoundation'', [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1226 SCP-1226 ("Postmodernism")]]. When a person looks at the entire painting it radically changes their body, causing them to assume the appearance of a stereotypical caveman, including a sloping forehead and a protruding jaw.

Added DiffLines:

* A storyline in ''Comicbook/TheAvengers'' revealed that ''ComicBook/TheInhumans'' had one of these, based on Kree technology, and had deposed their former king and made him an UnPerson when he tried to hide it from them since it was specifically designed to be a weapon to turn humans into a ServantRace. It was demonstrated to have no effect on non-humans, such as the NonhumanHumanoidHybrid Hulking of the ''ComicBook/YoungAvengers''
