** The Emperor of Mankind used to have ageless immortality when he was still healthy. After being mortally wounded by Horus and placed on the Golden Throne, his 50,000+ years really caught up with him.

** The Emperor of Mankind used to have ageless immortality when he was still healthy. After being mortally wounded by Horus and placed on the Golden Throne, his 50,000+ years really caught up with him. He's derisively called the Corpse-Emperor by the forces of Chaos.
** The oldest active SpaceMarine in the Imperium is Dante, who's been kicking ass for about a millenium. Older still (old enough to remember the GodEmperor in his StopWorshippingMe days) is Bjorn the Fell-Handed... who's sleeping in a giant combat sarcophagus most of the time, ritually woken up every century or so so he can tell the SpaceWolves of the glory days or when there's a serious battle to be fought.

* Morgan Le Fey in ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League Unlimited]]'' wears a mask all the time so nobody can see her face. She has to continually absorb LifeEnergy to stay young. Her son, on the other hand, stays young all the time... until he gets sick of being a child in "Kid's Stuff" and magically makes himself older... which breaks his eternal youth and causes him to quickly reach his true age. As the episode ends, [[spoiler:he has become an extremely old, drooling, possibly senile man, while Morgan continues to care for him, as she would with a baby]].

** In Angel vampires are established as being humans in a symbiotic relationship with a blood-borne warrior-demon. Presumably how much like a blood-crazed satyr one looks is related to one's relationship with the inner demon, and age is just one way to get there. Whatever makes the Master the big bad is likely another, and the super-vampires from the last season are probably close to the demon for a third reason.

** In Angel vampires are established as being humans in we have a symbiotic relationship with a blood-borne warrior-demon. Presumably how much like a blood-crazed satyr one looks is related to one's relationship with vampire named Russel Winters who still has human features and the inner demon, and age ability to shift to a vamp face, but his vamp face is just one way to get there. Whatever makes more monstrous than other vampirea implying he may be old but not as old as the Master or Kakistos. Season 5 also gives a vampire called the big bad is likely another, Prince of Lies who's a rare LooksLikeOrlick vamp, apparently very old and without the super-vampires ability to change his face but again much different from the last season other old vampires.
** The comics make this even more confusing by revealing that the master was actually sired by an Old One, but not the Old One who was the progenitor of vampires(who also appears) meaning the Master's appearance may not have anything to do with age and casting doubt on whether he and his bloodline
are probably close to the demon for a third reason.even really vampires or just something similar.

* Near the chronological end of the Creator/HarryTurtledove series "The Literature/{{Videssos}} Cycle," [[spoiler:Avshar]] is shown to be this.



* [[EvilSorcerer Avshar]] is ''Literature/{{Videssos}}'' is ReallySevenHundredYears old and never stopped aging during that time; by the present of the novels, he's aged into a [[OurLichesAreDifferent lich]]-like creature explicitly compared to a walking corpse. Of course, thanks to his magic he still has the strength and vigor of a man in his prime and usually hides his true, skull-like visage behind a mask or veil, revealing it only when he wants to strike terror.

* In ''Literature/KushielsLegacy'', this is the fate of [[spoiler:Hyacinthe]] after he takes on the curse of [[spoiler:the Master of the Straits]]. Whereas the latter is TheAgeless -- and over 800 years old at the time -- the former is doomed to live until the curse is passed on to someone else. [[spoiler:Only after Phedre breaks the curse does he admit how ''terrified'' he was by the threat of an eternity alone, crippled by age, and utterly insane.]]

* ''Film/TheBridesOfDracula'': Baron Meinster inflicts this on his mother after he's freed by turning her into a vampire as a form of cruel retribution for keeping him chained in room. Since she was already elderly when he bit her, the intention was that she would get the perks of vampirism (semi-immortality, powers) but likewise it's curse (hunger for blood every night, shunned by sunlight) while being stuck in the age she was killed in as opposed to his younger victims.

* Well, every human being with above average lifespan (with the possible exception of Creator/GeorgeBurns[[note]]Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide refers to Burns as a "Fountain of Youth". When Burns in his lower nineties had to play a character in his lower eighties, Burns required aging makeup.[[/note]]) is the downplayed version of this trope. There were supercentenarians who died in their 120s, spending a greater part of their life as senior citizens than as young people.
