* ''Series/LegendOfTheSeeker'': Zedd is turned into a young man by [[spoiler:Shota]] in "Wizard", so that he can do her bidding. Doesn't work out as intended, when it all goes to his head. Both Zedd and Shota can make anyone, including themselves, young, which means that they can live forever if they wished. Shota appears to make use of this power, as she's implied to be Zedd's age at least, while Zedd does not. She's shown to be very old when her magic is lost to her in "Reckoning".

She decided to test it out on herself first, only to find herself physically a six-year-old. She has largely isolated herself with her assistant Symin in the Hateno Ancient Tech Lab, too embarrassed by her condition to face Impa or fellow Sheikah scientist Robbie. And while she retains her memories and technical knowledge, she [[TheMindIsAPlaythingOfTheBody has the personality and temperament of a six-year-old]].

He was going to seek advice from the local Great Fairy about how to reverse this change when Sakon, a thief known to [[DirtyCoward prey mainly on children and old folks]], snatched from him the [[LostWeddingRing Sun's Mask that he planned to use in the wedding ceremony]]. He spends several months hiding from his loved ones in the backroom of the Curiosity Shop, not because of any current shame over his physical condition, but because he felt he needed to find the Sun's Mask first.
