* Gul'dan in ''Film/WarCraft'' looks like a hunched over SquishyWizard at first. When Durotan challenges him to a ''mak'gora'', Gul'dan shrugs off his robe and stands up straight, revealing his true imposing physique. He is able to trade blows evenly with the younger Durotan and even gets the upper hand a few times.

* While [[BigBad Immortan Joe]] from ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'' is an absolutely disgusting human being, being an EvilOverlord and misogynist who keeps women like cattle, he leads from the front and is one of the [[BadassDriver best drivers]] in the entire film, despite clearly being in old age and dying with multiple tumors and lesions everywhere on his body.

** By the time of ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', thirty or so years after the Original Trilogy, Han Solo has gone grey but his personality--and aim--haven't changed at all. He's introduced having an argument with two other criminal crews about the profits for some [[MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily rathtars]] ''who are currently loose on the ship'', and that's before he sets foot in the main plot.
