* In both the comic and [[WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}} animated]] version of ''ComicBook/{{WITCH}}'', the girls' transformation to their Guardian forms take them from middle school-age (13-15) to somewhere older (18 tops). The comic version of Will prefers her transformed state since she looks much more attractive than she does normally while the cartoon version of Hay Lin is accidentally insulted by Irma's mom when she mistakes her Guardian form for a Halloween costume and claims that she didn't know that costumes had "that kind of padding".



* Prince Adam's transformation sequence to He-Man in ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse2002'' is this. Adam is a slender teenage prince, while He-Man is as badass [[HeroicBuild and big]] as ever.

* ''Franchise/AceAttorney'': When channeling their dead sister/cousin Mia, Maya and Pearl Fey become vessels for her spirit. All this really means is that the full-sized Mia, bust and all, turns up wearing the younger Feys' clothes. It's bad enough when she turns up in Maya's body, but with Pearl, it gets downright {{Stripperiffic}}. This is actually ''invoked'' in one case, when Phoenix is trying to interrogate a witness who's a DirtyOldMan. To get the witness to talk, he brings in Maya, wearing a waitress outfit that the witness considers FetishFuel. The witness just takes one look at her and says for her to "come back when [she's] older". Cue her channeling Mia, and the witness starts talking immediately.

* ''Anime/YuGiOh'': When Yugi calls upon his mystical Millennium Puzzle to evoke the spirit of an ancient pharaoh into him, his voice deepens and he grows about a foot in height without raising comment from anyone. Since the cameo of the older Yugi in ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'' has him look largely the same, this is probably just a visual aid to the audience indicating his maturity. Mocked, as well as everything else, in the first episode of ''Yu-Gi-Oh: The Abridged Series'':
-->'''Seto''': Wait, did your testicles just drop in the last five seconds or something? What the ''heck'' happened to your voice?
** It should be noted, however, that this applies only to the [[Anime/YuGiOh second anime series]] ([[AdaptationDisplacement the one everybody knows about]]). In both the [[Anime/YuGiOhFirstAnimeSeries first series]] and the [[Manga/YuGiOh original manga]] Yugi stays the same height. His voice ''technically'' doesn't change, but [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Yami]] uses it with such confidence that he sounds completely different from [[ShrinkingViolet his other self]], to the point that it allows him to avoid being recognized by his friends in the first volumes of the manga.

* Vivio in ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid''. If you've seen ''[=StrikerS=]'' [[spoiler:it's the same one she used in the final battle, though with less black in the Barrier Jacket]]. Like her mom, however, she takes a very responsible approach to life-altering magics and readily promises her to never use her adult form for fun and mischief. She also displays acute awareness of the fact that suddenly growing breasts doesn't actually make her an adult. Other characters also have a similar Adult Form, like Einhart Stratos, her [[TheRival rival]] [[ReincarnationRomance and maybe something more]].

* The trope was formerly named, perhaps [[IAmNotShazam ironically]], after one of the exceedingly few western examples of it: DC comic hero [[{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]]. The "awkward situations with adults of the opposite sex" was played straight with [[MeaningfulName Beautia Sivana]], but inverted in ''ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica'' in which Captain Marvel reveals his identity to and begins dating a fellow superhero the same age as Billy Batson, and is later forced to break up with her due to misunderstandings from others who didn't know he was actually 16. His twin sister, Mary Marvel, has exactly the same power in some versions. (In the original Fawcett comics she gets the powers but doesn't age, like Captain Marvel Jr. In JeffSmith's ''Shazam and the Monster Society of Evil'' and Mike Kunkell's ''ComicBook/BillyBatsonAndTheMagicOfShazam'', Mary doesn't get older and is also [[CuteBruiser noticeably younger than Billy]]).

* ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan does this... sort of. He's actually 16, but usually tells people he's in his twenties when he's in costume. No one really buys it.
** Except [[DatingCatwoman Black Cat]], who had once kissed him. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny She threw up later when she found out he was really a kid]].
* ArchieComics Superhero ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Fly_(Archie_Comics) The Fly]]'' (also known as Fly Man) was originally one of these. Young orphan Tommy Troy was given a magic ring that allowed him to transform into an adult with insect-based powers. Unusually for this trope, the age differential didn't last. By the fifth issue Thomas Troy had aged a good ten years, gaining a law degree along the way, and was drained of any lingering trace of originality. (This was concurrent with the departure of the original Joe Simon/Jack Kirby creative team.) When The Fly and other Archie Comics heroes were revived under DC Comics' Impact imprint, this trope was re-established for the character.
