* About half the results of [[VideoGame/BlazBlueChronoPhantasma Amane Nishiki]]'s [[FinishingMove AstralHeat]] turns [[CampGay his]] opponents into children. The other half of the results turn them merely younger (as in, from adult into adolescent or so). The only exception is Platinum, a youngish MagicalGirl who instead turns into Trinity, her (sort-of) previous self.

Unfortunately, the AppliedPhlebotinum worked a little too well, and he reverted to infancy. A later attempt to fix it ''also'' works too well, restoring him to his original old age instead of to his target age.

** Luckily, the (non-canon) first captain of the Enterprise, Captain Robert April, was on-board. He de-aged from an elderly man to roughly Kirk's true age.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' episode "Goo Goo Gas", Plankton develops both a super-aging gas (a senior citi-spray if you will) and a de-aging gas (the title Goo Goo Gas). The latter ends up working a bit too well, [[RuleOfFunny turning him into an even smaller protozoa]].
