* Done fairly subtly in ''{{lonelygirl15}}'': Bree is initially seemingly obsessed with her stuffed toy animals, to the point where they're treated like [[CompanionCube characters in their own rights]]. They feature less and less as the series goes on, with Bree eventually admitting that she's probably getting too old for them in "Training Hard".

* Played straight at first in ''ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan'' in which the fifteen year old Peter Parker is told by Nick Fury that he will belong to him once he turns eighteen. For some time he assumes this means he will be a prisoner but when he later confronts Fury, he learns that the man actually meant he will be a member of ''TheUltimates'', a famous team of government funded superheroes, which obviously means Peter will have a well paying and exciting job waiting for him that will also allow him to keep his personal vows. Although the implication remains that all superheroes are being strictly regulated and have fewer civil rights than nonpowered individuals.

* In ''[[VideoGame/ClockTower Clock Tower 3/4]]'', Rooders' powers begin to fade after age 15, which means one would essentially lose their powers by age 20. Being constantly stalked by psychopath killers and "the forces of darkness", growing up almost invariably means you'll be defenseless against them. Considering said stalkers can find out you have Rooder blood and would like to prevent you from having offspring who can fight them back, your life will be incredibly fun from that point on. Did I mention [[FateWorseThanDeath the souls of the people killed by the subordinates will be forever tortured in order to nourish them and make them nigh invincible]]?

* ''{{Narnia}}'': Children eventually outgrow permission to visit Narnia, because, according to Aslan, the point of meeting him in Narnia is so they may grow to know him by "his [[{{God}} real name]]" on Earth.

* The episode ''"Soos and the Real Girl"'' of ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls"'' has Soos retreat to a kiddie arcade to relax and riding a train simulator after getting stressed out over horribly botching every attempt at meeting a girlfriend he mskes. He meets a lady who has the same mindset; their first date is at the local SuckECheeses. They both agree it was more fun when they were little.

to:

* The ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls"'':
** This trope is Mabel's character arc. Almost every
episode she's in that involves dealing with the changes and responsibilities that come with getting older; In "Summerween", she laments that she and Dipper won't be able to go trick-or-treating someday, and "Boss Mabel" gives her a very good idea of what kind of challenge running a business entails. But the worst comes in "Dipper and Mabel Vs the Future", where's all of Mabel's naive expectations of high school life are shot down [[spoiler: leading her to causing TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt in an attempt to freeze time.]] "Weirdmageddon Part 2: Escape From Reality" has Dipper point out that the reason Mabel's such a GlurgeAddict is because escapism is how she's trying to deal with her fear of growing up.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': If you hit puberty, you will apparently be forcibly evicted from [[CrapsaccharineWorld Smileyland]]. At the end of the episode, however, [[spoiler: Mr. Cat and Stumpy get superpowers due to puberty, and then [[StatusQuoIsGod lose them again]].]]

* Played with in the Literature/IncarnationsOfImmortality series. In "On a Pale Horse," babies (except those born from rape, hardship or some other sin) are all inherently bound for Heaven. Those born in sin are undecided. As soon as they reach a certain age, their free will takes over and they may end up in Heaven or Hell based on their decisions and actions.

** Some TruthInTelevision here, as plenty of girls do give up (or are forced to give up) horses for boys, college, or marriage and a family of their own. Many of them return to the sport later if their time and resources allow it. Some wind up moving to a city and cannot keep horses any more, but go back to riding in midlife. (Plus some larger cities have places -- usually parks -- where you can keep horses and ride.)
