** Gandalf didn't just stop ageing or age slowly at some point, he was "made" old. Or rather, when he and the other Wizards - actually [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Maiar]] - were sent to Middle-Earth, the Valar intentionally made them appear old and feeble so the mortal leaders wouldn't feel threatened by them (and so they didn't forget their station and become another Sauron).

His physical strength is superior to most Men or Elven warriors.

The character keeps his or her health with immortality, but not youth. As a result, these characters are forever stuck at the apparent age when most mortals health finally begins to succumb to the ravages of old age, but unlike the AgeWithoutYouth character, they usually remain vigorous, healthy, "active seniors," and are usually still at least somewhat attractive.

** Cirdan the Shipwright, he was "born" when the elves were originally created, and by the Fourth Age, he was so old that he had a white beard, something that was unheard of.

* When he gets serious in battle, Master Roshi in ''Manga/DragonBall'' is this. The rest of the time, he's a Type C.

* From WesternAnimation/AladdinTheSeries there's Ajed al-Gebraic, one of Genie's oldest masters. He traded Genie to a sorcerer in exchange for eternal life, unfortunately for him it didn't come with eternal youth.

* Amerasu from ''MemorySorrowAndThorn''. One of the oldest [[OurElvesAreBetter Sithi]], she physically looks barely out of her teens (like most adults of her race), but her personality and the way she carries herself are both indicative of tremendous age. In any case, she's both an immortal and obviously elderly, and fits here better than under any of the other types.

* Part of the premise of ''Film/FredClaus'' is that when someone is "sainted" their immediate family stop aging. However, it seems that St. Nick himself kept aging for a while longer to the point where he looks older than his parents, much less his big brother Frederick.

** ''TheWitcher'' plays it in an almost exactly the same way.

* Villainous example: the Norn Queen from ''MemorySorrowAndThorn''. She's the oldest thinking being in the world (and is said to be more than twice as old as her closest contemporary), and although her race, like their cousins the Sithi, are naturally immortal, she's begun to visibly show her age. However, she hides her face behind a silver mask designed to resemble what she looked like as a young woman, because she is ashamed of her age. She's also [[EvilSorcerer an evil sorceress]] of terrifying power.

* Matron Baenre of the ForgottenRealms was over a thousand years old [[spoiler:before her death at the hands of Bruenor Battlehammer and his axe.]] Unlike most Drow, she shows her age [[spoiler:though this is because she invoked ''zin-carla'' -- a necromantic ritual that grants a priestess of Lolth control over a powerful revenant at the cost of permanently draining the priestess' vitality -- twice in the past.]]

Lac]]. [[spoiler:Jenkins]] fits too, since [[spoiler:he's Galahad]]. This also applies to [[spoiler:Judson, before his death,]] and [[spoiler:Charlene]], both of whom are ''much'' older, being the first [[spoiler:Librarian and Guardian]], respectively.

* Taiitsukun from ''Manga/FushigiYuugi''. She may be a [[LittleMissAlmighty little]] [[MiniatureSeniorCitizens old lady]], but she's the TopGod in this universe. (Though she can take other forms as well: in ''Manga/FushigiYuugiGenbuKaiden'', she takes the form at one point of a young boy, about toddler age.)
