Due to massive misuse zero context examples and questionable examples for this trope are being purged.This deals with cases where a character is visibly old and is still portrayed as attractive. If this examples fits the trope then re-add with context making that explicitly clear. Do not confuse this trope for Hollywood Old, Older Than They Look, or Really Seven Hundred Years Old. Do not use this trope for personally or fan's opinions about a character's attractiveness.
* GrandmaWhatMassiveHotnessYouHave: He still has a large amount of fangirls.

Mostly. * CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Especially early on. * DecoyProtagonist: He does get a bit overshadowed by Hiroyuki and Akagi. * {{Polyamory}}: He has two wives. * ProfessionalGambler: Professional ''[[CardSharp Cheater]]'', more like. * ScarsAreForever: He got them from letting his opponents beat him up after being caught cheating. !!Hiroyuki Igawa * AdventureRebuff * AlwaysSecondBest: He becomes pretty miserable through most of the series because he considers himself inferior to Ten and Akagi. * CharacterDevelopment * TheLancer: To Ten. * {{Narrator}} !!Shigeru Akagi * CoolOldGuy * [[spoiler:BetterToDieThanBeKilled: Akagi chooses to go through medically-assisted suicide rather than have his mind deteriorate due to Alzheimer's. The fact that he was never afraid to face death makes it easier to digest...the fact that his mind was the greatest weapon he ever had and the fact that he was only in his early fifties doesn't.]] * [[spoiler:DrivenToSuicide]] * TheGambler: Duh. * [[spoiler:GoOutWithASmile]] * GrandmaWhatMassiveHotnessYouHave: He still has a large amount of fangirls. * [[spoiler:HandicappedBadass: He finds out he has Alzheimer's just before the series' finale.]] * WhiteHairedPrettyBoy: He definitely was one in his youth, and he has aged fairly well, and is still a MagnificentBastard to the bone.

This is arguably the point where the series [[CerebusSyndrome gradually becomes more serious]].]] * {{Yakuza}} !!Ken * CoolShades * TheIdiotFromOsaka: To a certain extent. He's young, brash and enthusiastic, even directly challenging Harada- who, despite also being from Osaka, is a much cooler, calmer character and thus accordingly loses his accent as the series progresses. !!Mitsui Soga * BaldOfEvil: Sort of. * CoolOldGuy * TheGambler * GeniusCripple: He is usually in a wheelchair. Might be because of his age, but still... * ScaryShinyGlasses: Occasionally. !!Ginji Asai * CoolOldGuy * LanternJawOfJustice !!Shuuzou Kanamitsu * BaldOfAwesome * DirtyOldMonk: Priests are generally not involved in gambling between Yakuza gangs after all.
