** In addition to Beast, by deciding to avoid ComicBookTime with ''Film/XMenFirstClass'' and ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'', several characters are older than the main cast in the original trilogy. There's Havok, who's Cyclops' ''younger brother'' in the comics; Darwin, who's the same age as Havok and hence younger than the First Class of the comics; Quicksilver, Riptide and Emma Frost, who are the same age as the present day characters in the comics; Shaw, who isn't as long-lived as his movie counterpart; and Angel Salvadore, who's in fact younger than most of the characters in the original trilogy. The future of ''[=DoFP=]'' also does this to Bishop and his counterpart in the comics, who still has yet to be born in the present, yet his movie self is teammates with Blink, Sunspot, and Warpath.
** Iceman and Pyro are closer in age to Cyclops and Jean in the comics, yet their movie counterparts are younger, and Banshee was an adult when he joined the X-Men in the comics. Mystique is a couple of years younger than Professor Xavier in the movies whereas her comics counterpart is roughly the same age as ''Wolverine''.

** Matches Malone is a case of VaugeAge, but in the comics, he's young enough for Batman to pull a DeadPersonImpersonation once he believes Malone is dead and use his identity to spy on criminals. Here, he's already an adult while Bruce is a kid.
** One of few characters to go the other way is Leslie Thompkins - her actress Creator/MorenaBaccarin was 35 when she started the role and is only about 8 months younger than Creator/BenMcKenzie (James Gordon), while in the comics she's depicted as a contemporary of Alfred Pennyworth (played by 50-year-old Sean Pertwee) and old friend of Thomas and Martha Wayne. Pennyworth himself is a case of VagueAge concerning his age relative to Bruce Wayne's, but as a whole averts this trope.

* Esmeralda from ''Literature/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'' is a sixteen-year-old girl. In the [[Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame Disney adaptation]] never [[VagueAge specifies]] her age however she doesn't seem nearly that young.

* Inverted in ''Film/TheGodfather, Part III'', Al Pacino (50) played Michael Corleone (59) -- this may seem like a small jump, but Pacino was made up to look like he'd aged a lot, with greyed hair and so on.

** ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' went all over the place with this. [[Anime/DigimonAdventure The first stored]] left the ages alone, but the second one, a TimeSkip sequel to the first, aged everyone up by a year, and ''[[Anime/DigimonTamers Tamers]]'', perhaps because it was DarkerAndEdgier, aged all the kids up by three years...which ended up creating some rather poor implications that ''weren't'' originally there, as at one point Ruki/Rika's mother's age is explicitly stated and this age is left unchanged, dropping the age difference between mother and daughter from 18 years to 15.

** The MCU in general when it comes to ComicBook/NickFury and Comicbook/BlackWidow. In the comics, both of them were around during UsefulNotes/WorldWar2, but are OlderThanTheyLook thanks to some AppliedPhlebotinum. The movies indicate they're roughly the same age as their actors, Creator/SamuelLJackson and Creator/ScarlettJohansson, with ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' explicitly giving Black Widow's birth date as 1984.
