*** Solars, Lunars, and Sidereals who exalt as teenagers may follow a similar rule. The 1500 year old preteen mentioned above has spent far too much time in the Wyld and is quite messed up. The others which aren't clearly adults in the artwork are all very young and inexperienced.

** Also, the Terrestrial Exalted age more continuously and gradually over the centuries (or else their Exaltations would leave a good number of them as semi-eternal children), but do not move past their (physical) fifties or so until their lifespan draws close to an end.

** Also, the Terrestrial Exalted age more continuously and gradually over the centuries (or else their Exaltations would leave a good number of them as semi-eternal children), but do not move past their (physical) fifties or so until their lifespan draws close to an end. Since they always exalt before the age of 20, the rule for them seems to be normal aging until reaching full physical maturity (i.e. early 20s) before it slows down.

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' hasn't been able to age for the fifty years [[TimeSkip between]] seasons 4 and 5 as he comes to realize in the trailer. It is unknown if it's because Aku has kept him young or if it is due to some other reason.

* In ''VideoGame/TheSims3'', supernatural Sims age normally until the Young Adult stage. After that, their lifespans are 5 times the length of regular Sims (or 1.5 in the case of werewolves).

** The Primarchs had this as they not only rapidly reached maturity, but they also never seem to age. This seemed to have at least lasted a few good centuries from the start of the Great Crusade up until just a few years after the Horus Heresy, but it's not known if they're simply long-lived or if they're truly immortal, as all Primarchs in the story's present day are either dead, in suspended animation while inches from death, lost or Daemons (which immortality comes naturally for).

** During the Horus Heresy the Primarchs and the Space Marines were both considered functionally immortal. The Primarchs had this as they not only rapidly reached maturity, but they also never seem to age. This maturity and then seemed to have at least lasted a few good centuries from stop aging, while the start of process that creates the Great Crusade up until just a few years after Space Marines is performed prior to puberty and bumps the Horus Heresy, but subject into an eight-foot adult colossus. Post-Heresy it's not a bit muddled: one Primarch is known if they're simply long-lived or if they're truly immortal, as all Primarchs in to have survived for 1,000 years, but the story's present day rest are either dead, in suspended animation while inches from death, lost or Daemons (which immortality comes naturally for). As for the Space Marines, only one has been found to survive the 10,000 years from the Heresy to the setting's present, and he was rendered so infirm that he was unable to move and expired shortly after his discovery. The rest tend to last no longer than three centuries at war, with some reaching 1,000 years still able to fight.

* Averted in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6350735/1/Secrets-and-Half-Truths Secrets and Half-Truths]]'' with the Uzumaki. According to Mito, an Uzumaki's childhood usually lasts for over thirty years. The reason it didn't for Naruto and Kushina is because keeping the Kyuubi sealed drains them immensely, taking them from half-immortal to having a lifespan matching an average human.

* ''Series/{{Highlander}}: The Series'' both averts and explains this. Immortals are always frozen at the age when they died, so you can get child immortals, but because immortals also tend to hunt each other down, the children don't last long, so you don't see many... the ones that survive the first few years... [[ManipulativeBastard tend to]] [[AxeCrazy be off]]. Immortals above the biological age of forty also tend to be rare, for pretty much the same reason - those that aren't 'lucky' enough to start being immortal when in their physical prime (20s and 30s) are less likely to last long when other immortals come around with a sword and try to cut their heads off.

* It seems to work this way for Mer (or at least Dunmer, and [[AllThereInTheManual probably not for]] [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orsimer]]) in ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''. Unofficial chronicles of Queen Barenziah's life portray her as growing up as a precocious teen and being considered an adult once she was 18 years old. That was in the First Era. She's still alive and well, if elderly, during the events of ''Morrowind''. And while the lack of Dunmer children in the game is mostly due to the [[HideYourChildren conspicuous absence of children in general]], you can meet families where the parents don't seem much older than their progeny (then again, this could be due to OnlySixFaces).
