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]].

* 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.

* Played with in the ''FanFic/PonyPOVSeries'' in regards to [[BadFuture Dark World]] [[DaddysLittleVillain Fluttercruel]]. After having a VillainousBreakdown and partial HeelRealization, the Elements of Harmony manage to banish her spirit (reduced to a mentally broken foal) to the spirit world, where Fluttershy [[spoiler: (now the Alicorn [[TarotMotifs Queen of Cups]])]] decides to raise her properly and teach her to use her powers for the benefit of others. [[spoiler: Then the other Alicorns decide she hasn't been punished enough for her crimes, and she's sentenced to be sent back in time and [[IronicHell live as one of her own victims]] with [[AmnesiacDissonance no memory of her past existence]]; after eventually dying again, the horror she experienced finalizes her HeelFaceTurn.]]

* At the end of the OurWorldsAtWar crossover event in 2001, Lena Luthor--who'd been taken to the future and raised/warped into an evil cyborg by Brainiac 13--is reverted back into infancy, and one of the last scenes of the crossover is {{Superman}} giving her back to her father, ComicBook/LexLuthor, and begging Lex to [[RaiseHimRightThisTime Raise Her Right This Time]]. A few years later, after Lex goes goes insane, is kicked out of the Presidency, and goes on the run, Lena is put up for adoption to more fit parents.

* A very odd variation of this happens in ''ComicBook/{{Irredeemable}}''. [[spoiler:[[BewareTheSuperman The Plutionian's]] body is disintegrated after absorbing massive amounts of radiation, but his original essence as created by the [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien Eleos]] is still intact, and [[TheSmartGuy Qubit]] scatters it across TheMultiverse, where it can hopefully be remade into something good. And then two boys excitedly start drawing designs for the ultimate superhero. Yes, Plutonian is reborn as ''ComicBook/{{Superman}}'']].
