* In ''[[Film/StarTrekIIITheSearchForSpock Star Trek III]]'', when the three prisoners on the Genesis planet are lined up together teen Spock is noticeably ''much'' shorter than David (Merritt Butrick was 6'1") and even seems shorter than Saavik (though she was wearing boots with heels and had big hair--they're actually the same height otherwise). Stephen Manley, who played Spock at 17, was a good match facially but stood only 5'8", four inches shorter than Spock as an adult (Creator/LeonardNimoy was 6 feet tall).

** Played straight in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', where present Trunks and Goten don't appear to have grown since before the TimeSkip at the end of Z despite 7 years having passed. In fact, Future Trunks' own history shows more significant growth during his time training with Gohan, than his present day iteration.

* Averted in ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'', where the [[AgeLift now fifteen-year-old Ash]] is mentioned to be taller than his mother. Other teenage characters in fic follow a mix of averting and playing this straight, though it's rather clearly shown that height is less a matter of teen vs adult but [[spoiler: Genetic]], like in real life.

* Averted in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12869868/1/No-Promises No Promises]]'' where the SelfInsert is six feet tall despite only being fourteen, but this is because his father [[Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire King Baratheon]] is even taller.
* Averted in ''Fanfic/{{Traveller}}''. Less than a year into his journey, Ash is already as tall as his mother even though he's only eleven.
