* In ''Anime/TowardTheTerra'', when Nazca is [[EarthShatteringKaboom under attack]] by the [[WaveMotionGun Meggido]] the seven Children of the Mu instantly age themselves from toddler to teen and teleport themselves into space to reenforce the shield Blue and Jomey have just created.



* Several movie franchises play with this, specifically ''Disney/TheLionKing'' and ''WesternAnimation/IceAge''. As the kids will age up, but no-one else shows any signs of aging at all. Simba and Peaches will grow into teenagers while all the other characters (aside from other kids) seem to be frozen in time. Timon and Pumbaa are probably the worst offenders in movie history, as they're adults when Simba is a baby. Cue when Simba is a father even when his daughter reaches adulthood, they're still exactly the same.

Possibly [[JustifiedTrope justified]], as for most non-human species the aging from childhood to adulthood is a matter of a mere year or two. Lions reach sexual maturity between 3-4 years old and live to about 16, while meerkats reach maturity at 1 and live on average to 6-10.

* In ''The Snow Queen'' by Hans Christian Andersen, the main character Gerda rescued her friend Hans from the Snow Queen, after he was inflicted by a shard of the devil's mirror and turned cruel and cold-hearted. But when they arrive back home in their garden, they turn to find themselves both adults. Poetically, the whole adventure portrayed their adolescence.

* In Season 6 of ''Series/OnceUponATime'' Rumpelstiltskin and Belle's son Gideon is aged from a newborn to a young man in his early 20's through being kidnapped by the Black Fairy and held in another realm where time moves differently. Somewhat justified as it's a prison realm to contain the Black Fairy but it does come of as counter to what the show has already established about the rules of time within realms. The series has shown us many realms and time moved at the same rate in all of them.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheLandBeforeTime'', Spike is shown hatching in a patch of grass Ducky finds his egg in. Cut to outside the grass, and Spike inexplicably comes out the same age as the rest of the main cast. This could have easily been avoided if he had been that age to start with.

* For the first three seasons of ''WesternAnimation/AvengersAssemble'', ComicBook/TheFalcon was a [[YoungerAndHipper teenaged versions of himself]]. However, season 4 opened with the Avengers being scattered through time and space and unlike the others, when ComicBook/TheWasp and ComicBook/TheVision found Sam in a bad future, he'd aged into an adult and traded his classic!Falcon appearances for one akin to his ''Ultimate'' and MCU'' ones.

** ''ChourikiSentaiOhranger'': After Emperor Bacchus Wrath was killed by the Ohrangers, the Machine Empire Baranoia is briefly taken over by the usurper Bomber the Great, who promptly dispatches himself of the young prince Buldont, who was officially first in line to the throne. Since all the villains are robots, Buldont is subsequently rebuilt in secret by Empress Hysteria, into the much more powerful and adult Kaiser Buldont.
** ''Series/BakuryuuSentaiAbaranger'': The BigBad Dezumozorlya is a parasitic godlike being who needs hosts to survive. His mostly used host in the series is Lije, a young girl who's revealed to be the baby daughter of [[spoiler: Mahoro and Asuka]], aged up into a 12 year old girl. Dezumozorlya later ages his host up to the adult Lijewel, in order to more effectively fight the Abarangers.

** Norman Osborn artificially aged his twin children by Gwen Stacy so that currently they are the same age-group as their late mother.

to:

** Norman Osborn ComicBook/NormanOsborn artificially aged his twin children by Gwen Stacy so that currently they are the same age-group as their late mother.
** ComicBook/TheMightyThor inverted this, giving Loki a Plot Relevant Age ''Down'' where he was reincarnated as his child self after dying. It avoided being {{Narm}} or too heavy-handed when an echo of the older Loki revealed his reasons for having it happen. Preteen Loki has been hugely popular, making it work very well. And then he got two age ups as well. The first is the one mentioned under ''Young Avengers'' (to young adult) the second happened in ''Comicbook/LokiAgentOfAsgard'' when the jerk chose to remake themself rather than turning evil evil again (to thirty something).
** Avengers #200. Ms. Marvel is impregnated, gives birth, the child ages to adulthood, and "marries" his mother in the course of a few days. Look it up. Led to a big time WhatTheHellHero / TheReasonYouSuck Speech from Carol sometime later.

** Arisia from ''ComicBook/GreenLantern'' physically ages herself from about 13 Earth years to at least 18 Earth years so she can pursue a crush on Hal Jordan. Later, to make Hal Jordan not look like a skeeve, this was subject to several {{Retcon}}s, and, in current continuity, 13 years on her world are equivalent to 240 on Earth.
** While the PhantomZone normally suspends aging, Comicbook/{{Superman}}'s son Chris emerges from its imprisonment as a teenager.
** ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis did this to Bart Allen/Kid Flash via spending four years in an alternate dimension accessed via the Speed Force, thus turning him into someone old enough to be the new Flash (after spending a while, [[RefusalOfTheCall Refusing The Call]]) while Wally and his family were on another planet. He was then the new Flash for a while [[spoiler:until Inertia, his EvilTwin, got the RoguesGallery together and killed him, perhaps [[ExecutiveMeddling to make room for Wally's return]].]]
*** Interestingly, the reason Wally was off on the other world was to deal with his speed-powered twin kids who were receiving the same treatment- they're chronologically less than two but look eight or so, [[spoiler:and nobody knows if their aging has truly evened out or if it's temporary: any given morning Wally and Linda could wake up to find them teenagers or senior citizens or dead,]] so they're being rushed into the [[LegacyCharacter Family Business]].
** Duela Dent, "The Harlequin", was a '70s Comicbook/{{Teen Titans}} character who was apparently the daughter of a post-Two-Face Harvey Dent. As her age never made sense with the timeline (otherwise she would have been a small child instead of a teenager), Marv Wolfman had her origin revealed as a lie in the pages of ''New Teen Titans'', while George Perez drew Duela to suddenly look as if she were in her thirties or forties to emphasize that she had to be too old to be Two-Face's daughter. An older Duela was also briefly seen as an asylum patient in ''Team Titans'', although when the character was formally allowed back into Titans continuity, later artists and writers aged her back down.
*** Other Titans, ComicBook/HawkAndDove, underwent this in a guest appearance in ''The Brave and the Bold'' in the 1970s. Overlapped with a bit of a ContinuitySnarl, as Hank and Don were aged up to being adult men while the rest of the DCU didn't age with them. Marv Wolfman then poked fun at the continuity error in their cameo at Donna Troy's wedding, with the college-aged Hank and Don being baffled when someone had the impression that they were much older.
