* ''WerewolfTheForsaken'' has a whole Lodge of these, known as the Lodge of Scars. Somewhat justified, as the werewolves who quality for said Lodge have survived ''decades'' in a life where they're constantly hounded by hostile spirits, in the middle of a holy war with their bastard cousins, and always one step away from going into a killing rage.

Henderson]], now with [[Fanfic/OldManHenderson his own page]]!page]], stands out in particular. Very handy with a shotgun, could level a church full of cultists "with the speed and brutality of the fucking Spetsnaz", extremely handy with explosives and [[spoiler:permakilled Hastur]].

''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' There is a Mythic path ability that can be taken for any mythic path that causes a character to not suffer the negative aging problems, but gain all the positives.

* 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.

*** 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,the time flow in the warp is very strange so there could be only few hundred years for them since Horus Heresy or their fight lasted longer than Imperium itself[[/note]]

** 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, completely grey hair.He's said to be strong enough to be able to fight a Bloodthirster one-on-one. And Ulrik the Slayer, the chief Wolf Priest, 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 weapons, he has a rather foul mood and the firepower to back it up.

* In ''BattleTech'', Clan Mechwarriors are but mayflies to the Inner Sphere, where your average 'Mechwarrior (Assuming s/he isn't killed in combat) will be in the cockpit till their 40s. But several examples of Badass Grandpas (And Grandmas) include Natasha Kerensky (In her 70s when she was finally taken down by a rare Clan 'mechwarrior almost as old as her), Jaime Wolf (died in his 80s during the Word of Blake-sponsored invasion of Outreach, after taking out an entire company nearly singlehandedly), Takashi Kurita (Who at the age of 80 had to be restrained by an agent of his son just to stop him from charging headlong into a clan invasion force of the capital world) and his son Theodore (Who fought a war on two fronts, against the Lyran Commonwealth and Federated Suns forces, and against his own army's staunch traditionalism sponsored by his father, at the age of 43, and only went further as time went on.)

* In TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}, [=FastJack=] is one of the best Deckers/Hackers on the Matrix (both the old and the new.) He was born in 1999, which means that in 2nd edition he's close to sixty, and in 4th edition he's in his early seventies and perfectly capable of [[GrumpyOldMan booting kids off of his (virtual) lawn.]]

** There's a theory about how Yarrick has survived for so long. Da Orks fear him because they believe he's an unkillable badass, and since [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve Orks tend to subconsciously alter reality based on belief]], he's ''literally'' become an unkillable badass.
