* In one episode of ''TheFantasticJourney,'' a murderer steals an object that has the power to warp matter, create food and other such things from a peaceful community. The orb reacts to him and regresses him into an infant. The community scoop him up and promise to raise him well; his life will replace the one he took.

See also FountainOfYouth, which is usually the cause of this. Compare TurnOutLikeHisFather. When this trope is used as a reward instead of a punishment (of sorts) it's AndYourRewardIsInfancy.

* Following an arc in which he died in a case of RedemptionEqualsDeath, SelfDemonstrating/{{Loki}}, a longstanding villain in ''ComicBook/TheMightyThor'', is resurrected as a young boy and serves as a RedeemingReplacement of himself. The explanation is that Loki pulled his FaceHeelTurn as a teen, and his younger form [[AmnesiacDissonance only has memories from before that]], at which point [[UsedToBeASweetKid Loki was a nice kid who looked up to his big brother]].

* [[spoiler:Wander]] from ''ShadowOfTheColossus'', during [[spoiler:the final cutscene]]. This is more ambiguous that most examples, given [[spoiler:Wander's uncertain status as protagonist]]. Given that he had just been [[spoiler:possessed by the morally dubious divine entity who served as his master and guide throughout the story, and his reincarnation as a baby largely purifies him of its essence, Wander at least undergoes redemption through dissociation]].

* Inverted in ''{{Terranigma}}'' in which [[spoiler:the villains do this to Ark once [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness he's outlived his usefulness]]. However, upon gaining maturity again, he is 'reborn' as the hero destined to defeat Dark Gaia and complete another revolution of the cycle.]]

* In ''Webcomic/{{BACK}}'', the villainous Tummy Boys are transformed into babies when their {{Fartillery}} powers are negated by antacids. The townspeople they had previously harassed are sure they won't be a problem anymore, but [[NominalHero Abigail]] ''still'' wants to shoot them.

* Dr. Forrester of ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' is turned into a baby (a la ''TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey'') in his last appearance on the show. Subverted in that his mother Pearl initially promises to raise him right, but it's revealed later that he turned out just as bad as before. So she killed him.
