** VideoGame/PokemonColosseum has [[spoiler:[[BigBad Evice]] who is the old mayor of Phenac City and his team is one of the deadliest in the Pokemon franchise with a Slaking that gets Truant removed through Skill Swap, a [[InfinityMinusOneSword Salamence]], Scizor, Slowking, Machamp and his final Pokemon which is a Tyranitar. Due to this he is considered one of the [[ThatOneBoss hardest bosses in Pokemon history]].

* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' has both Bozé Lowes and Kentaro Nagi, respectively 54 and 57 years of age. They both have long military histories and still kick just as much ass as the younger party members.
--> '''Bozé''': I may be older, but I can still pull my weight.

** A possible encounter out on the roads is against an Old Orc who seeks an honourable death in battle rather than wasting away in a bed, and he can't just commit suicide as it would displease his god, Malacath. He'll be surrounded by the corpses of multiple sabre-toothed cats when you find him. Becomes a DyingMomentOfAwesome if you've been identified as the Dragonborn and have completed Malacath's daedric quest, as it means this Old Orc gets to die in fair battle against ''a legendary dragonslayer who is also the chosen champion of his god''.

** As of the fourth game, Marcus himself has become this. He might be older but he's still just as huge and combat-capable.

* Cidolfas Orlandu of ''FinalFantasyTactics'', the "Thunder God" himself. The leader of the Nanten Knights and a general within the ranks of the banner of the Black Lion of Prince Goltana, he defects to Ramza's (you) forces because he realizes that despite having served the house of Goltana for decades...the war the Prince is esclating against Duke Larg for the crown will tear Ivalice (the games' setting) apart. Right from the moment you see him, even though he's among the ranks of many of the games' antagonists...you know he's honorable and awesome, daring to question his liege' intentions. You realize from reading his profile that he can probably do this because no one would stand a chance against him if they felt then need to quiet him...as is displayed later in the game. No martyrdom for this undefeated swordmaster! Oh no, he joins you after that and subsequently breaks the game because he's so damn powerful...the need for your other party members becomes tertiary. He has every major sword ability in the game including one that heals him while still doing massive damage, he comes with Excalibur, and he has superior stats. He IS Ramza's army by the end. If you can actually lose with Cid on your team then you...you just suck.

* Does Tung Fu Rue of VideoGame/FatalFury qualify? I certainly think so!

* Videogame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim has the Greybeards, monks who live up in the Throat of the World (the highest mountain of Tamriel) who have mastered the [[LanguageOfMagic Thu'um]]. To put things in perspective, most of them don't talk because if they did they'd take out half of the mountain they live in with their voices. That's how powerful their Thu'um is.

* ''AnarchyReigns'' has Douglas Williamsburg whose stats says that he might be 180 years old. That doesn't prevent him from kicking a lot of ass though.

** Sergeant Avery J. Johnson is a [[SuperSoldier SPARTAN-I]] who served in classified Spec-Ops before rejoining the regular Marine Corps, and fought at both the first and last battles of the 28-year-long Human-Covenant war. He kills enough Flood to astonish the [[OneManArmy Master Chief]] himself, and successfully hijacks a [[SpiderTank Scarab]]. He even badmouths the Prophet of Truth to his face while being held captive and beaten by a [[KillerSpaceMonkey Brute]]. He's probably at least in his 70s when you fight alongside him in the games; even taking into account cryo-sleep, he's still at least in his 60s.

** While not a ground pounder, Captain Keyes certainly qualifies as well.well, being perhaps the UNSC's best single-ship commander, and is still quite capable of undertaking ground-ops if he has to.

** Radigan Conagher, mechanical genius, possessor of HotBloodedSideburns, became even more BadAss after he came in contact with [[{{Unobtanium}} Australium]]. [[http://www.teamfortress.com/engineerupdate/handyman/ Exhibit one]], Radigan with a robot hand and chest hair in the shape of Texas. Also actually a grandfather (to Dell Conagher, the BLU engineer).
** Heavy is heavily implied to have been a young boy in the early Stalin era, making him in his late 40s at the very least.
** Engineer's father is implied to have participated in ''VideoGame/TeamFortressClassic'', which takes place in 1930 in this timeline, and a picture of the two suggests that Dell was about 10 at the time, putting his birth year somewhere in the 1920s.

* ''Everyone'' in ''[[VideoGame/StarSiege Earthsiege]]''. According to the backstory of the first game, the RobotWar that erupts missed a tiny museum loaded with antique [[HumongousMecha HERCULAN robots]] and equally old staff consisting of former techs and pilots with an average age of 67. The most iconic is your MissionControl, Ambrose Gierling, a cantankerous old former HERC pilot and blatant UsefulNotes/GeorgeSPatton {{Expy}} played by John Rice, who easily looks the part of a 70-year-old war veteran.
