** Sans any evidence to support that idea, this example actually stands as one of the rare villainous ''Aversions'' to the trope. At the end of the movie they've only lost their voices, but their youth seems intact.

* ''Series/TheNewAvengers'': The soldiers in the Russian 'secret army' who have been in 'cold storage' since WorldWarII in the "K is for Kill" two-parter. When they are killed they revert to their biological age.

* In the JackieChanAdventures fic ''Fanfic/QueenOfAllOni'', when Tarakudo [[spoiler: kills the Oni Elders in an interlude, they are so wasted (they only lived that long by trying to mimic jiangshi) that their flesh turns to dust in seconds]].

* Played with in ''Film/{{Munchhausen}}''. The Baron, who due to a magic spell has been in his forties for nearly 200 years, decides WhoWantsToLiveForever and gives up his magic charm, because he doesn't want to outlive his aging wife. He then immediately ages, but only to an age that matches hers.

* ''TabletopGame/DragonTheEmbers'': the Knights of the Bloody Chalice are a group of humans who [[PoweredByAForsakenChild keep themselves immortal by killing living beings (preferably supernatural ones, especially Dragons) and bathing in their blood]]. This only lasts for a year however (five for dragon blood), at which point the blood wears off and they start aging at an accelerated rate. It's not ''quite'' as bad as most examples on this page because they still get a delay of one month to bathe again, but past that delay, they literally are dust.

* A ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'' episode features an age-sucking villain. When the heroines disable his magic crystal thingy, he crumbles into dust.

* A ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'' episode features an age-sucking villain. When the heroines disable his magic crystal thingy, he crumbles into dust. Of course, since the show is made for kids and younger teens, they couldn't actually address that he died, instead having the heroines just confusedly say that he "disappeared."

* In ''Anime/SailorMoonCrystal'', [[spoiler: Queen Beryl]] was a human from Earth who sold her soul to Queen Metalia, who gave her a necklace containing her power, which made her both powerful and not ageing for hundreds of years. [[spoiler: When Sailor Moon destroys the necklace, Beryl turns to dust.]]

* This is entirely unconfirmed, but in ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks Rainbow Rocks]]'', some believe this to be the reason why we never see [[spoiler: the Dazzlings]] again following the time [[spoiler: their pendants (which kept them alive as humans for a thousand years) were destroyed.]]

* In ''Literature/ShamanBlues'', [[spoiler:Tadeusz]] dies just a few hours after the wraith that kept him alive is sent away. Justified, as he's under constant medical care even when it's still around.

* When Shang Tsung is killed at the end of ''Film/MortalKombat'', his body rapidly deteriorates into a skeleton. What's truly bizarre about this is that while he enjoyed enslaving the souls of others, his immortality was a completely natural part of his biology. Unless the freed souls had something to do with it, he should have decayed like anyone else.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/{{Watersong}}'', when a curse which grants immortality is lifted, the formerly cursed individuals instantly advance to their natural age. This usually means instant death if they're over a hundred years old, so the thousand-year-old sirens aren't very eager to get their curse lifted.
