* Not a ray, but ''The Film/DevilDoll'' featured a shrinkage-inducing chemical process that reduced people or animals to the size of toys. Could be the UrExample, from 1936.

* In [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] DCComics, {{Superman}} had one that could be used to allow people to enter the bottled city of Kandor (which was originally shrunk by Brainiac using a shrink ray). Notably, Superman's shrink ray worked by exchanging one full-size person for one shrunken Kandorian, making them swap sizes. It was many years before he could find a way to enlarge all of Kandor on its own, and permanently. Brainiac's shrink ray, on the other hand, was this trope played straight.
* The DCComics hero ComicBook/TheAtom had the ability to alter his size and weight at will.

* ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' "I Shrink Therefore I Am". The crew are shrunk by {{bounty hunter}}s to make them easier to transport and control. Sikozu immediately starts listing all the reasons why this is impossible (their brains should be too simple to function, and they shouldn't be able to breathe normal-sized air molecules) until Rygel tells her to just [[MST3KMantra shut up and accept that the impossible has happened]]. The episode ends with a fight between Crichton and the VillainOfTheWeek, with each trying to shrink the other and resize themselves. Needless to say, someone ends up getting squashed nastily.
