** Robert Parker's famous PI Literature/{{Spenser}} fought in Korea and fought Jersey Joe Walcott in the fifties. He's still in business and in something of his physical prime. While Parker allows Spenser to age, he's taken on something of a "timeless" quality as a character.

* Creator/MadeleineLEngle appears to have scrambled her own timeline in her "Chronos" books. The original edition of ''Meet the Austins'' (1960) was five chapters long: the sixth chapter, "The Anti-Muffins", was removed at her publisher's request for length. The action in ''Meet the Austins'' is not specifically dated, but its direct sequel, ''The Moon by Night'' (1963), is very definitely set in 1959: Vicky goes to see ''Theatre/WestSideStory'', her father mentions having met Princess Grace "back when she was plain Creator/GraceKelly", and the family are in [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1959_Yellowstone_earthquake the Hebgen Lake earthquake]]. "The Anti-Muffins" was published separately in 1980, and has been included in the text of all printings of ''Meet the Austins'' since 1997: it includes a mention of the Kenny Rogers song 1978 "The Gambler". (Not to mention the hobbyist-spacesuit reference buried at the beginning of ''Meet the Austins'', which sounds like a nod to ''Have Spacesuit, Will Travel''. L'Engle justified this in a letter by noting that she was more interested in ''kairos'', the "appropriate time," than in ''chronos'', rigorous clock time.)

** In series 8 Luann Van Houten tells Marge that she just can't keep up with the Go-Go Nineties.
** The series 5 opener refers to Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and Bob Hope all still being alive, working and successful. George Harrison cameos in the same episode (and not just the flashback bit).
** In Season 3, Sideshow Bob says that "You can't keep the Democrats out of the White House forever!" That was six presidential terms ago, four of them Democratic, and Maggie hasn't aged a day.

* In CliveCussler's novels, Dirk Pitt has been an eternal thirty-something, and Kurt Austin and eternal forty-something, even though roughly four decades have passed, both in-universe and in real life. Somewhat averted in the later Dirk Pitt novels, where his age was advanced by approximately a decade, he discovered he had some kids that he never knew about, and he got promoted in his job.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Neptunia}}'' series doesn't have its human characters age at all, despite each game usually opening with one of the characters mentioning that "years" have passed in-universe since the previous game. If IF and Compa were in their early teens when they met Neptune and Nepgear for the first time (as seen in a flashback in ''mk2''), they should be in their mid to late twenties as of ''VII'', yet they don't seem to have aged a day, if you ignore ArtEvolution. At least the [=CPUs=] have the excuse of canonically [[TheAgeless not aging]]. ''Victory'' features an AlternateUniverse where IF and Compa are aged through [[TimeSkip Time Skips]] from toddlers barely able to speak to about five or six to their usual [[VagueAge something-teen]] age, yet the all the other human characters, like Abnes and Mr. Badd, remain the same age.
