* 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.

* Dallben from the ''PrydainChronicles'' 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.]]

* On ''Series/DoctorWho'', four of the Doctor's incarnations -- the [[Creator/WilliamHartnell First Doctor]], the [[Creator/JonPertwee Third Doctor]], the [[Creator/JohnHurt War Doctor]], and the [[Creator/PeterCapaldi Twelfth Doctor]] -- were played by visibly aging actors. A Time Lord's apparent age is usually rather arbitrary, but they does seem to age if they go long enough without [[TheNthDoctor regenerating]]. For example, the mini-episode "[[Recap/DoctorWho50thPrequelTheNightOfTheDoctor The Night of the Doctor]]" shows that the War Doctor initially looked like a ''young'' John Hurt, and the 2013 ChristmasSpecial "[[Recap/DoctorWho2013CSTheTimeOfTheDoctor The Time of the Doctor]]" shows Creator/MattSmith's Eleventh Doctor aging over the course of centuries until he looks like an old man right before he regenerates. In the old-school serials ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS14E3TheDeadlyAssassin The Deadly Assassin]]'' and ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS18E6TheKeeperOfTraken The Keeper of Traken]]'', TheMaster is shown to have undergone an even worse AgeWithoutYouth process to the point of looking like a rotting corpse.

** His [[TheNthDoctor first incarnation]], portrayed by 55-year-old Creator/WilliamHartnell, appears to be centuries old already and having started his regeneration process due to his body wearing out.
** According to the Second Doctor he was about 450 years old.
** When he is aged by the Time Destructor his appearance doesn't change much, while his companion turns from a young woman to dust.
** After centuries protecting the planet Trenzalore the 11th Doctor, the youngest-looking Doctor, ends up looking like he did when he first regenerated.

* A few cartoons on ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' imply the King of Town is one of these: "A Decemberween Pageant" implies that the King of Town was the same King seen in the pageant, and in "Which 'Ween Costumes?" he claims to be about 300 years old.
