* DungeonsAndDragons, (and by extension {{Pathfinder}}) has an interesting inversion with druids. at 15th level they get the Timeless Body ability which means they stop aging (presumably at whatever age they were when they got the ability) and get the mental benefits of old age without the physical drawbacks. They still die of old age when their normal lifespan is up though.

* ''Film/TheGreenMile'': Paul Edgecombe. He doesn't look a minute over 60, while he really is 104, and outlived several nurses at the retirement home. Given to the pet mouse, Mr. Jingles, whom [[MagicalNegro Jim Coffey]] brought back to life, which lived to 64 (mice seldom live over two years), Paul is most likely destined to live over 1,000 years.

* Roger Bacon from ''Koudelka'' and the ''VideoGame/ShadowHearts'' trilogy attained immortality by following a ritual depicted in the [[EldrichTome Émigré Manuscript]] so he could share his vast knowledge with the future generations. Though successful, he could not stop his body from being ravaged by time, explaining his skeletal, grotesque visage. When he was tasked by the Vatican with the creation of a copy of the century years old cursed book, Bacon omitted the ritual so it could be abused by immortality seekers. He also claims he cannot replicate the process on others.

** 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.

** 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.

* 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.
