* In episode 16 of an old Sentai series called ''KyodaiKenByclosser'', the villains use a weird gun to revert a couple of children (Yeah, children, strangely enough) to infancy, before turning them into old people with another gun. A young woman is also regressed into a baby. Obviously, all of them are eventually turned back to normal.

* This was a favorite tactic of the extradimensional media mogul Mojo in the Claremont-era ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' comics. Since time passes slowly in comic book universes, this is usually not an issue, as most characters' backstories aren't tied to a specific event. A notable exception is Magneto, a holocaust survivor canonically born in the 1920s. To get around this, he was reduced to infancy and then [[PlotRelevantAgeUp aged back to adulthood]] sometime in the 80s, putting his age firmly back in the traditional comic book "fucked if I know" category. Magneto has naturally gray hair, and was in good physical condition for a man of his age. [[DependingOnTheArtist Different artists]] either draw him as a physically fit older man or a physically fit young man with gray hair.

* In an ad for the PS2, we are shown the aftermath of this. In a nursing home, we see empty halls with discarded clothes with no one in sight. A clock is shown moving backwards and then we see naked babies crawling around.

* 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.

* 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.
