Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'': Griffin is referred to as an old man by both himself and other hunters, but he's had more practice hunting and killing xenofauna than anyone else on the team and he's still going. Lennox, while similarly aged, doesn't have his years of experience. What she does have is four tons of armor and weapons in MiniMecha form and the desire to beat the living hell out of the monsters that destroyed her colony.

* Joel, from ''TheLastOfUs'' is over 50, but works as a smuggler, and regularly beats both zombies and people to death with his bare hands.

* [[FluffyTheTerrible Sprout]] from ''PhantomBrave''. Despite his name, he single-handedly kills and absorbs the essence of a monster responsible for the deaths of three of the main characters in the prologue, [[spoiler: comes into at least two [[HopelessBossFight Hopeless Boss Fights]] and wins the battle]], is the largest humanoid character in the game (he's about the same size as a ''dragon''), and [[spoiler: attacks Sulphur, the BigBad, and weakens it to about 1/20th of its full power before, unfortunately, [[DemonicPossession having his body taken over by it. He commits suicide to weaken Sulphur further.]]]].
* Kainen from ''Tomba 2'' definitely counts during the cutscene between dongolin woods and Circus Town.

** It gets better in ''RedDeadRedemptionUndeadNightmare''. There are three towns in the game that will NEVER come under zombie attack. Two of them are fortresses with tall walls and only ladders to access it. The third? A brothel in Mexico with no tall walls. Landon Ricketts is single-handedly keeping the zombies down in Casa Magruda with nothing but his trusty-six shooter. He also has the idea of combining the zombie bait and dynamite into a weapon that draws the zombies in before blasting them into red mist.

* The End from ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater''. Sure, the guy's over a hundred years old, with about a week's worth of life left in him, but he's still the best sniper in the world. In addition, he can run faster then Snake, is capable of photosynthesis, and is the absolute king of camouflage. He may be as old as the hills, but he ''will'' take you down. With ''[[CherryTapping tranquilizer rounds]]''.

*** Really all the Cobras can count for this. You have to remember that they were already veteran soldiers when the group was founded 32 years before ''Snake Eater''[='s=] events and by the time of their deaths were well into their 50s. The Boss is a slight exception since she is only 48, but she makes up for it in sheer badassness.



** Big Boss himself, who, by the time of the first VideoGame/MetalGear game, was in his 60s and was considered THE most badass soldier of the century. [[spoiler:By the time of [=MGS4=], he's already survived being (supposedly) killed TWICE (the first time had his fortress collapse around him, the second involved being set on fire), was in a coma for about 15 years, had his body restored partially from the remains of his dead clones, and he was STILL considered to be THE badass to end all badasses. Also, he still scared Snake when they had their little encounter in the cemetery. He was in his eighties.]]

*** [[spoiler:As it turns out, his first supposed death was actually his body double Venom Snake being KilledOffForReal. That said, Venom in the first ''Metal Gear'' still very much counts; he's in his early [=60s=] when he fights Solid Snake, but still gives the much younger soldier one of the toughest battles of his life.

** How has Ganon/dorf not been mentioned? The guy's always sealed up for generations, putting his age somewhere around the hundreds, if not thousands. And since he's the Big Bad, he's obviously going to be dishing out plenty of ass-kicking.

* Sister series ''SamuraiWarriors'', not to be outdone, gives us Yoshihiro Shimazu, who - despite being a craggy old man with the requisite white beard - is built like a brick outhouse and can swing around a giant hammer with ease.

* Sam Fisher of SplinterCell is practically an embodiment of this trope. Let's see what's on the menu! A S.E.A.L vet? Check. Capable of taking down numerous Special Forces operatives more than half his age? Check. Can and WILL take these operatives on without a weapon? Check. A fan of the Jack Bauer Interrogation Technique? As every victim knows (assuming they're still alive), check. Oh, Dear Lord, check.

* ''Videogame/{{Overwatch}}'': Both Reinhardt and Torbjorn are pretty old, at 61 and 57 respectively but they're still kicking ass and taking names. Soldier: 76's age isn't known but he's obviously up there in the years too.

** The Veteran class may count. They're all old men [[NeverMessWithGranny and women]] who, likely from the years of training, have pokemon generally of higher levels than those of other trainers around them.
** Drayden from Unova. In White he's a RetiredBadass, but in Black, White 2, and Black 2, he's the Dragon-type Gym Leader. In Black 2 and White 2, [[HeirToTheDojo Iris]] even refers to him as her grandfather, though they aren't actually blood relatives. It is mentioned that he ''wrestles'' with his pokémon--one of which being Haxorus, a species that boasts one of the highest attacking stats in the game.
