** Averted in "Day of the Doctor", where David Tennant has visibly aged from his time playing the Tenth Doctor, but the character is depicted as being taken from a timeskip previously implied to exist by a RunningJoke in his final season. This aversion is lampshaded by the Eleventh Doctor in the warmup footage played in cinema screenings of the episode, where the Eleventh Doctor complains about how all the Tenth Doctor's 'lines and saggy bits' are going to come out at viewers in 3D.

** All the ''Lethal Weapon'' movies, really, since non-fatal {{Retirony}} is part of the premise. Murtaugh turned 50 at the start of the first movie, and was seriously considering retirement due to age in the third.

* The ''Series/StarTrek'' franchise plays with this. It's established that both Vulcans and Klingons age more slowly than humans, meaning that even though ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' aired 20 years after ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' and was set roughly 80 years later, Vulcans Spock and Sarek can both appear in ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' played by their original actors without trying to conceal their age in either direction, and several Klingons from the original series (namely Kor, Koloth, Kurn, and Arne Darvin) can do the same in ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine''.

** Ian McDiarmid's case is something of a strange inversion in that he became age-appropriate for Palpatine in the ''prequel'' trilogy, filmed about two to three decades after the original films; in his original appearance, Palpatine had a pale, mutated face, and so we never saw the younger McDiarmid without prosthetics on.
