** Lord Slug did the same trick in the DBZ movie of the same name. [[spoiler: Apparently this is a common power for 'Super Nameks'.]]

** 'Series/MiraiSentaiTimeranger'' and ''Series/PowerRangersTimeForce'' have the same method but with different reasons: In ''Timeranger'', criminals convicted of time-traveling crimes are flash-frozen and shrunk down to the size of action figures. When they are revived, they have to wear a special seal in order to maintain their normal size, and breaking this seal results in their Humongous-necessitating growth, due to this being a side-effect of the compression process. In ''Time Force'', the seals are natural and removing them exposes their DNA, causing them to grow and increase in strength. In both cases, when they are defeated at giant-size, they are back in their compressed states.

** ''Series/GoseiSentaiDairanger'' also has some humorous awareness regarding growing. Like ''Morphin' ''season two, whose monsters it provides, the Dairanger monsters use grow bombs. When Lipstick Songstress (that's Lipsyncher to MMPR fans) gets pissed at having her 'perfect' face scratched, she whips out a grow grenade (clearly, she has ''no'' regard for the unwritten rule that you're only supposed to grow when you're losing.) and you can see the {{Mooks}} run away ''before'' she activates it, not wanting to be squished by her soon-to-be-giant feet! (Not seen in MMPR 'cause the Dairanger {{Mooks}} are different.)

** In ''Series/EngineSentaiGoOnger,'' one monster dramatically shouts the usual growth command, "Industrial Revolution!" ...and nothing happens. Turns out a GenreSavvy Go-On Gold had [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome removed the monster's module of grow-juice]] during the battle!

** Pictured above is the classic "Giant Growth" card, which increases a creature's strength and toughness by 3 each (for reference, an average ''dragon'' in the setting would be either a 4/4 or a 5/5). There are also variations on the card, such as Mutagenic Growth (which can be paid with life instead of mana, but it's effect is reduced to +2/+2) and Enlarge (gives +7/+7, but causes enemy creatures to block it)

* ''Franchise/SuperSentai''/''Franchise/PowerRangers''. Whenever the Rangers defeated the MonsterOfTheWeek, eight times out of ten the BigBad of the season would resurrect it at giant size for the Rangers to fight in their [[HumongousMecha Zords]]. Each villain had a different method for doing this; let's just list the ''Power Rangers'' ones - {{Trope Namer|s}} [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Rita Repulsa]] threw her magic staff to the Earth, [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Lord Zedd]] threw a magical grenade, [[Series/PowerRangersZeo the Machine Empire]] sent out a tiny robot with an enlarging ray... [[labelnote:If you care...]] [[Series/PowerRangersTurbo Divatox]] fired torpedoes with a growth potion, [[Series/PowerRangersInSpace Astronema]] fired a ray from her base, ''Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy'' monsters grew on their own or, rarely, from drinking a potion, [[Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue Jinxer]] threw growth cards, which he had in addition to monster and mook cards, [[Series/PowerRangersTimeForce mutants]] tore off "DNA patches," [[Series/PowerRangersWildForce Toxica]] fired magic seeds from her staff, [[Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm Lothor]] fired a "Scroll of Empowerment" from his ship, [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder Mesogog]] used a "Hydro-Regeneraator" that brought down technobabble-laden rain, alien criminals in ''Series/PowerRangersSPD'' [[AvertedTrope used their own "Zords"]], ''Series/PowerRangersMysticForce'' had it as one more easily-cast spell, each ''Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive'' BigBad had his own grow method, [[Series/PowerRangersJungleFury Rinshi Beasts]] used a necessarily-vaguely-defined martial arts technique, [[Series/PowerRangersRPM Venjix]]... uh, the visuals that accompany "Begin the download, now!" are pretty vague, but consensus is 'download' refers to downloading a growth program into the monster, [[Series/PowerRangersSamurai Nighloks]] naturally had a second "Megamonster" life/state/form that kicked in when they're blown up, [[Series/PowerRangersMegaforce Vrak]] called his Zombats to attach themselves to the monster to initiate the growth, [[Series/PowerRangersMegaforce Princess Levira]] fired the Maximizer ray from the Armada's mothership, [[Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge Sledge (and later, Heckyl)]] commanded one of his {{Mooks}} to fire the Magnabeam from his spaceship, and [[Series/PowerRangersNinjaSteel Cosmo Royale]] fires a beam from the Warrior Dome ''if'' the Galaxy Warriors audience demands it. Whew.[[/labelnote]] (Mind you, the monster being destroyed at small size first didn't become the norm until ''well'' into the series. No matter how many times it happens, any longtime Power Rangers fan will probably never feel quite right watching a ray strike the totally empty space where the utterly-vaporized-onscreen monster ''used'' to be, somehow causing a giant monster to manifest from ''nothing.'' Also, any form of self-activated growth requires the monster to be intact enough to activate it, so if (for example) a mutant from Time Force is frozen or a Rinshi Beast from Jungle Fury does the revert-to-stone-and-shatter routine, it's over at any size.)
