** The Kaio (Kais in the English dub) race of creator "gods" are stated to live for around 75 million years, with the exception of the higher-ranked Kaioshin (Supreme Kais), who have much longer lifespans. Exactly how long isn't defined, though they are ''not'' immortal.

** The Kaio (Kais in the English dub) race of creator "gods" are stated to live for around 75 million 75,000 years, with the exception of the higher-ranked Kaioshin (Supreme Kais), who have much longer lifespans. Exactly how long isn't defined, defined (the eldest one we've seen is 75 million years old, and he's not exactly on his deathbed), though they are ''not'' immortal.

* Pretty much ''everyone'' in ''Franchise/{{BIONICLE}}''; apparently, biomechanical beings have on average lifespans reaching at least the ''five or six digits''. The Makuta in particular stand out: they've been around nearly as long as the [[PhysicalGod Great Spirit Mata Nui]] at around 100,000 years and most of them are still pretty spry. And there are some beings who are even ''older'' than them.

* EvilSorcerer Andre Linoge from ''Series/StormOfTheCentury'' has a lifespan that can be measured in centuries at least. The plot is kicked off because he is, by the standards of his kind, approaching his twilight years. [[WeAreAsMayflies He still has long to live by the standards of humans]] (he claims that the youngest children of Little Tall Island might outlive him), but beneath the illusion of a fit middle-aged man he is a sick and dying old man. Apparently even his powers can't extend his lifespan any further. [[spoiler:So he's out to secure his legacy by claiming one of the island's children as his heir. All of the pain and suffering he's inflicted on the islanders was done to strongarm them into giving him one of their children, since whatever rules bind him dictate that he can't just ''take'' a child.]]

* In ''Series/StargateSG1'', the Jaffa can live for 150-200 years, having been engineered from TransplantedHumans to carry Goa'uld symbiotes until maturation. In practice, few of them live that long. Either their symbiote matures and a replacement can't be found in time (Jaffa don't have a working immune system with the symbiote acting as replacement), or they are killed in battle. The two oldest Jaffa shown are Teal'c and Master Bra'tac (Teal'c mentor). Both lose their symbiotes in an ambush but survive thanks to a drug called tretonin that must be taken daily to keep their immune system active. Teal'c further ages many decades during the GrandFinale and shows grey hair. However, he is as strong as ever and is able to hold his own in a ''Series/StargateAtlantis'' crossover episode in an hour-long slugfest with [[Creator/JasonMomoa Ronon Dex]].
