* Early on in ''Manga/DragonBall'' Master Roshi filled this role, even defeating the main character Goku at the end of the series's first tournament arc, where he actually ''blew up the frickin' moon!'' Unfortunately, Roshi's power level remained fairly constant throughout the series, while the younger characters became vastly stronger every arc, to the point where, by the start of ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' Roshi was relegated to being the comic relief.

He eventually manages to double subvert it and bring himself back to this status for ''Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF'' and ''Anime/DragonBallSuper''.

* Solid Snake from ''MetalGearSolid4'' is depicted as a badass graying elder, capable of kicking as much ass as he did in earlier games. Although he isn't actually that old, he has supposedly aged prematurely because of [[CloningBlues the primitive cloning method used to create him]].

* Music/BuenaVistaSocialClub: When they released their 1997 global best-selling album most musicians were veterans who were already in their seventies, eighties and nineties. The oldest was Compay Segundo (1907-2003), who was 89 at time of recording the album. Special notice goes out to Rubén González, who suffered from artritis, yet still managed to give away amazing performances!
