* 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.)

* Prophet Velen, leader of the draenei in WoW, is old enough to have quit keeping track of his age before the draenei left Argus twenty five thousand years ago. In ''Literature/RiseOfTheHorde'', he's [[WordOfGod stated to be]] tall and thin by draenic standards (albeit spry enough to keep up with his much younger guards on foot), with long white hair, a [[WizardBeard long white beard]], and "character lines." His in-game model, despite a few minor discrepancies (blue-violet skin rather than pure white, for one) matches that description.

* Dallben from the ''Literature/ChroniclesOfPrydain'' is sort of a type C. Whether he's exactly immortal is unknown, but he has at least lived several times the normal human lifespan. [[spoiler:His aging however, isn't natural. He was aged prematurely when he read the Book of Three from beginning to end. So for a good chunk of his life he was actually YoungerThanTheyLook.]]

* In ''{{Literature}}/ShinSekaiYori'', Tomiko, head of the Ethics Committee, looks like a healthy 60-something-year-old but is actually 267 years old when Saki meets her. She achieved this by using her telekinesis to repair her telomeres like gluing together pottery shards.
