* Much like the books they are based on, the older engines such as Edward, Toby and Skarloey usually play this straight in ''ThomasTheTankEngine'', though the show's longer run has led to them having more flawed or vulnerable moments than in ''TheRailwaySeries''. Arguably Sir Topham Hatt (aka The Fat Controller) also counts.

* Most "old" characters in ''{{Transformers}}'' tend to be cool old guys. Since they don't age like humans, the most common cause of death is war-related and anyone who survives to be really really old probably did so by being really really badass.
** Ratchet in ''TransformersAnimated'' is definitely a badass, despite sporting a beer gut. He's also the team's medic, making comparisons to Bones [=McCoy=] even more impossible.

* Keeping to music, Music/DavidBowie has probably been this since he marked his 50th birthday with an all-star concert at Madison Square Garden in 1997, but then he released ''The Next Day'' in 2013, which was his first album in nearly 10 years and an international success with critics and music buyers. He hasn't performed live since 2007, so with this feat he effectively made an outright, out-of-the-blue ''comeback'' at the age of 66.
