* Dean Cain appeared on a season 7 episode of ''Series/{{Smallville}}'' as Doctor Curtis Knox, an immortal who had been, among other people, UsefulNotes/NapoleonBonaparte and UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper. Who is very likely Vandal Savage mentioned above under Comic Books. For added fun, Knox is dealt with by the ComicBook/MartianManhunter who's played by Phil Morris, the same guy who voiced Savage in the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' animated series. Which, in a very roundabout way, makes him TheDanza.

Added DiffLines:

* The 2nd half of season 4 of ''Series/Warehouse13'' has a trio that were turned immortal in the 1540s. Since then they've regularly taken on new identities to keep hidden.
* The "BigBad" of the first half of season 3 of ''Series/{{Eureka}}'' is Eva Thorne. She might not be immortal, but in the 30s she was exposed to a radioactive accident which slowed her natural aging. By 2008 she's 107 years old but looks to be around her 50s. Her original name was Susan Perkins and she has changed identities at least once to avoid notice and get where she is.

*** Would be awfully hard for Dracula to be Vlad Tepes and Gilles de Rais considering that Tepes was born in 1431 and de Rais was executed in 1440. Unless he was lying, or there was a covert replacement.

*** Would be awfully hard for Dracula to be Vlad Tepes and Gilles de Rais considering that Tepes was born in 1431 and de Rais was executed in 1440. Unless he was lying, or there was a covert replacement. [[note]] Funnily enough, that approach could have worked, since Vlad was a noble hostage to the Ottoman Sultan until about 1446-7. Who's to say the person who arrived was the real Vlad? [[/note]]

* Along with EveryoneIsRelated, and LegacyCharacter this is one of the central tropes of [[Creator/PhilipJoseFarmer Philip José Farmer's]] Wold Newton Universe. Franchise/DocSavage is also [[Film/TheThing1982 R.J. MacReady]] and [[Literature/TheTimeMachine H.G. Wells's Time Traveler]]. [[Creator/AlexandreDumas Joseph Balsamo]] later became Literature/TheCountOfMonteCristo and then [[Literature/TheNarrativeOfArthurGordonPymOfNantucket Arthur Gordon Pym]] (inventing fictitious sympathetic backstories for both identities) before using alien super-science found at the North Pole as Pym to become [[Literature/TwentyThousandLeaguesUnderTheSea Captain Nemo]], Literature/RoburTheConqueror, and eventually [[Film/ForbiddenPlanet Doctor Morbius]] (though [[Literature/SherlockHolmes Professor Moriarty]] briefly posed as Nemo without Balsamo's knowledge or permission before changing his name to [[Literature/TheSeaWolf Wolf Larsen]].

** Made more fun by the fact that [[Film/{{Highlander}} Connor MacLeod]], ComicBook/VandalSavage, and [[Recap/StarTrekS3E19RequiemForMethuselah Flint the Immortal]] (mentioned above) all exist in this universe.

* In his longest work "Literature/TheCaseOfCharlesDexterWard", Creator/HPLovecraft writes about a necromancer by the name of Joseph Curwen, who along with at least two other members of his cabal, is seemingly unaffected by age. One of his confederates, who lived in Salem (during the infamous [[WitchHunt witch trials]]), moved away then returned, masquerading as his own son at Curwen's urging. Curwen himself doesn't bother with this trick. They both get found out eventually, and both escape, in one form or another, from those determined to do them harm.

* Jack from ''Film/HeNeverDied'' is an [[OurVampiresAreDifferent immortal cannibal]] who is old enough to have once been [[spoiler:UsefulNotes/VladTheImpaler; and way before that, he was {{Cain|AndAbel}} of the Bible]].

* ComicBook/VandalSavage, from Franchise/TheDCU, was [[AncientEgypt Cheops]], UsefulNotes/AlexanderTheGreat, UsefulNotes/JuliusCaesar, UsefulNotes/GenghisKhan, UsefulNotes/VladTheImpaler, and UsefulNotes/{{Blackbeard}}. At least that's his story. Every so often there'll be a {{retcon}} in which another immortal will say he's making half of it up.

* One of the Magical Arts teachers at SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy in the WhateleyUniverse claims she was [[Literature/TheOdyssey Circe]]. The thing is, everyone else in the Magical Arts department insists she really ''is'' Circe.



* Circe of the WhateleyUniverse has apparently lived for thousands of years, and claims to be the original Circe of Greek mythology.

* ''Film/TheManFromEarth'' has this with the main character, although he's usually a 'friend' or 'student', or otherwise indirectly involved with some historical figure. (And he points out even that doesn't happen very often, since he can only be in one place at a time and has to move on every 10 years or so to avoid any questions about why he's not aging.) He does turn out to be [[spoiler:{{Jesus}}]], though. [[UnwantedFalseFaith Bit of a misunderstanding]], that.
