** Sebastian Crenshaw. Picture SeanConnery playing Ryu Hayabusa, and you have Crenshaw in a nutshell. Around sixty in a setting where average life expectancy is forty, and the personal assassin of the most powerful man alive. Also a social chameleon and the life of every party.

** The 13th Great Company of Space Wolves consists of ancient marines who served alongside with Bjorn and Russ himself. They have been fighting Chaos inside Eye of Terror for 10,000 years[[note]]Kind of; time flow in the warp is very strange, so it could have been only a few hundred years for them since the Horus Heresy, or their fight may have lasted longer than the Imperium itself.[[/note]]
** And on the [[EvilCounterpart Chaos Space Marine]] side of things, most of the Traitor legions are almost ''entirely'' made up of these, with the members having fought in the Horus Heresy. Of the Traitor Legions however, the oldest are [[AxCrazy Khârn the Betrayer]] and [[TheArchmage Ahzek Ahriman]], who are both Pre-Unification Wars Space Marines, making them ''thirteen thousand'' years old.
** The inimitable Marneus Calgar, Chapter Master of the Ultramarines; probably around a thousand years old, fitted with bionic replacements for his four severed limbs and his damaged left eye, dual-wields PowerFists, and punched out an ''[[PhysicalGod Avatar of Khaine]]'' and lived to tell the tale. (Arguable: Calgar is just slightly old by the standard of Chapter Masters and certainly younger than Grimnar or Dante.)

** Commander Dante, the Chapter Master of the Blood Angels is one of the oldest Space Marines alive, being over 1000 years old. The closest most Marines has gotten is several hundred. This makes Dante a master strategist and is still a beast on the table. He even fought and clove one of The Mightiest Daemons of Khorne, the Bloodthirster Skarbrand, in two.
*** Let's not forget: he's been ''Chapter Master'' for over 1000 years. His real age is unknown, though it must be decidedly greater. No one else, outside of Dreadnaughts, can remember a time he wasn't the Chapter Master of the Blood Angels.
** Space Wolves tend to have quite a few of these. Their Chapter Master, Logan Grimnar, is so old that he's earned the name of "Old Wolf", and has a full-on grandpa beard made completely of grey hair. He's said to be strong enough to be able to fight a Bloodthirster one-on-one. And then there's Ulrik the Slayer, the chief Wolf Priest, who is old enough to call him "Young Grimnar."
*** The oldest Space Wolves Dreadnought is Bjorn the Fell-Handed, one of the few individuals who can claim to have fought alongside Leman Russ and the Emperor. Also, as a corpse locked inside a giant robot loaded down with weapons, he has a rather foul mood and the firepower to back it up.

* In ''TabletopGame/SentinelsOfTheMultiverse'', there's Mister Fixer, an auto mechanic and master martial artist who happens to be over eighty years old, but can keep up with superheroes who include a FlyingBrick, a soldier in advanced PoweredArmor, an alien with WeatherManipulation technology, and an ancient Egyptian god. Mister Fixer also happens to be [[HandicappedBadass blind]], and beneath his grease-covered overalls and karate gi, [[HeroicBuild he is incredibly muscular]].

* In ''[[TabletopGame/IronKingdoms Warmachine]]'', promoting a warcaster to General is usually a final honour before retirement; upon getting his new rank badge, General-Adept Sebastian Nemo stoped inventing cool weapons and went straight to the northern border to save the primary defence fortress from destruction. Before promotion, he invented the Storm-Chamber tech powering the weapons of the various Storm Companies, built two sets of armour based on the same power (one for him, one for his star pupil), designed and built the most advanced Warjack in the whole game, and trained Lord-Commander Stryker, a man in command of about half of Cygnar's military power. He has gone toe to toe with the biggest and baddest warcasters of rival nations time and time again over 60-ish years of service, beat them all into death or retreat, and will happily demonstrate the exact reason why you should respect your elders, if you push him.

**Theres also Karchev of Khador. After being crippled in battle a hundred years ago he received a warjack to serve as a surrogate body and has continued serving ever since. He's seen countless battles and has more experience than anyone outside the undead generals of Cryx. Being both a warcaster and warjack he's a ten foot tall iron and steel mecha with access to magic.
**Hierarch Severius of the Protectorate of Menoth is way up there in the years, but this doesn't stop him from leading the Protectorate and personally leading the Northern Crusade. Despite his physical frailty he's a brilliant tactician and leader and can invoke holy power to smite his enemies, protect his allies and completely shut off all magic nearby.
