* In both manga and anime versions of ''LightNovel/{{Gate}}'', creepy [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Public_Security_Intelligence_Agency PSIA]] agent Komakado suffers a back injury trying to lift [[ElegantGothicLolita Rori Mercury's]] giant ax after someone tries to steal it (and promply ends up crushed under it). It's not that he's old, though, he's barely middle age, it's that the halberd is ''extremely'' heavy, Rory being a PhysicalGod.
* Neptune of OnePiece definitely counts. He may not look all that old but the first fight he's shown in, this trope ignites with him and it isn't revealed until after the fight is finished.
