Have I Returned to the Correct Size?
The subject of a Shrink Ray is suspected not to be his original size.
This might be too rare to trope, but I've definitely seen it repeatedly. Watched an episode of Deep Space Nine where 3 crewmen and a runabout get shrunk. At the end when they're normal sized again, Odo suggests that Bashir and O'Brien seem a couple of centimeters shorter than they used to be. As far as I can remember, this happens every time a Shrinkray gets used in TV or movies, with two variations:
- The shrunk-and-restored characters suspect (or are made to suspect) they haven't been fully resized.
- A character with control over the Shrink Ray deliberately gives himself some extra height.
