* Vampire series ''TrueBlood'' has Jessica, recently turned into a vampire, who now lives with her "maker" Bill instead of her uptight Christian family. Now she has the freedom to do almost anything she wants, including getting a human boyfriend; but to her dismay she has to discover that after sex her hymen grows back. Every time. Seriously.

* ''Series/MyBabysittersAVampire'' introduced a member of the Vampire Council who resembles an 8-10 year old girl in the second season. This creates serious FridgeLogic issues as several members of the main cast were turned at age 14-17 in the [[PoorlyDisguisedPilot movie]] and now look two years older.

* The driving force behind the plot of ''Anime/PetitePrincessYucie'', the anime result of combining the settings, characters and story elements of several of the PrincessMaker games. Here, an artifact called the Eternal Tiara exists, capable of granting any wish, and several girls of about ten years coincidentally end up trying to prove themselves true princesses (and thus able to use it without getting killed) in order to be worthy of using it. The twist comes when it becomes clear that all of the girls are about 15, and none too pleased about having stopped growing at ten. The reason? [[spoiler:A cosmic ploy to give the winner something to wish for when their friends are [[PoweredByAForsakenChild sacrificed]] to power the [[ArtifactOfDoom tiara]], since it tends to destroy the world its currently in if it isn't used regularly.]]

* Inverted (without much reduction in suckitude) in ''Tales of the Questor''. Why do all Elves look young? Because an Elf long ago made an ill-worded wish that Elves never grow old. They die at twenty.
* Revealed to be happening in ''Webcomic/Unsounded''. Sette still idolizes her father, but her father's affections for his daughter faded sd he saw that she would never mature, physically or mentally. It is not entirely clear that there are strict limits on her mental maturation, however. Her savvy as a rogue is clearly far beyond that of the average seven year old daughter of a crime boss.

* Hex of ''Webcomic/CharbyTheVampirate'' implies his recreation of Mye's Bunny form may have been partially due to this, and unquestionably partially because he is sick of being mistaken for a child by one actual child in particular.
