* ComicBook/RasAlGhul's Lazarus pits. While not -exactly- the same thing, the pits are used at one point in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' to restore elderly Bruce Wayne back down to his 40s (as part of a Ra's plot to put his mind into Bruce's body).
** There was another story from the 60s in which Batman is turned into a toddler but he retains his intelligence and strength. So basically the villains who plotted to do this, all they really did was [[NiceJobFixingItVillain make him a more difficult target]]

* One ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' comic features a group of mad scientist villains who turn Batman into a toddler in order to make him more vulnerable. Yet he still keeps his adult mind, memories, and strength and skills. So pretty much all they did was make him a harder target.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* Music/DanielAmos: In the short story that accompanies the album ''Music/{{Alarma}}'', one scene involves an entire church congregation reverting to babies before the narrator's eyes. This was meant as a satire of certain real-life {{Man Child}}ren.

** Also the plot of the very early made-for-tv Creator/KeanuReeves movie ''Young Again'', from which ''SeventeenAgain'' seems to be ''heavily'' drawn. ''17 Again'' is practically an unoffical(?) remake of the film.

* In ''[[ComicBook/AthenaVoltaire Athena Voltaire and the Isle of the Dead]]'', it's recounted that a Spanish explorer discovered the Fountain of Youth. The effects lasted a while, but had to be refreshed from time to time. Eventually, however, he noticed that the Fountain was showing signs of depletion; rather than risk returning one day to find it gone, he filled up as many barrels as he could. The ship he put them on, however, was sunk setting up the plot.

Contrast with OvernightAgeUp and PlotRelevantAgeUp. Compare ReallySevenHundredYearsOld, where an individual is vastly older than even the maximum natural lifespan for their species, and does not look as ancient they actually are; MerlinSickness, where the individual's aging progresses in a backwards fashion (i.e. they grow younger rather than older); and LongevityTreatment, where one's maximum lifespan is increased (which [[AgeWithoutYouth does not necessarily come with youth]]). See also HealingSpring.
