* 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.

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

* Hinako Ninomiya from ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' switch from a little girl to a tall, buxom and beautiful HotTeacher through a ki-absorbing technique. Although it is implied that she's OlderThanTheyLook as a little girl, and that her adult form shows her true age.

* 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.

This doesn't work with [[WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse the original series]] where Prince Adam and He-Man's looks were exactly the same.



* While they don't become adults, the middle-schooler heroes of ''WesternAnimation/{{Witch}}'' become older-looking when they transform.

* ''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.
