* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': Steven and Connie are two children that can [[FusionDance fuse]] into Stevonnie, who has the appearance of a young adult, and is capable of driving a car. Although regular gems are TheAgeless, their fusions can look vaguely older: Ruby and Sapphire somewhat child-like, but [[spoiler:Garnet]] is clearly an adult.

* 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. This doesn't work with [[WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse the original series]] where Prince Adam and He-Man's looks were exactly the same.
* Stevonnie from ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' is this for Steven and Connie, having the appearance of a young adult, they're also capable of driving a car. Garnet is also this to Ruby and Sapphire.

* In ''ComicStrip/BananaMan'' Eric is an ordinary schoolboy who can transform into an adult superhero by eating a banana. An exaggerated version of this trope was used in different ways in the comic and in the animated series. In the comic, part of his MultipleChoicePast showed him getting his powers as an infant and being able to transform into a fully adult Bananaman (wearing a nappy and with the brain of a baby). In the animated series, he exploited this to his advantage (or rather HypercompetentSidekick Crow did) when he was regressed to a baby and eating a banana once again turned him into an adult Bananaman.

* ''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.

The wholesomeness of this idea is its main feature; that characters would run into rather {{squick}}y situations if they found boyfriends or girlfriends while changed is surprisingly common, and thus this trope is often combined with LovesMyAlterEgo.

She succeeds, converting almost instantly from a girl of approximately 8 years old, to a much taller teenager.]]
