** There are also olive trees that continue to give fruit after 5,000 years. In other words, it might be possible to eat olives from the same tree that Socrates and Plato once did.

** The Tsaesci are an [[{{Wutai}} Akaviri]] race who attempted to invade Tamriel late in the 1st Era but were defeated and the remnants of their army were incorporated into the empire of the Reman Dynasty. Sources conflict greatly over whether the Tsaesci were serpentine [[SnakePeople Snake Vampires]] or a race of Men just like those found in Tamriel. In either case, they are apparently longer lived than that typical men of Tamriel. The two Akaviri [[RegentForLife Potentates]], who ruled Tamriel in a continuation of the Reman Empire early in the 2nd Era, ruled for 323 years and 106 years, respectively.

* In Literature/TheBigOne universe, a number of the characters have extended lifetimes, some reaching several millenia. They are not immortal and can be killed or die of disease (the Great Influenza of 1919 wreaked havoc on their ranks). Some are prominent in history (Parmenio, Nell Gwynne, Shakespeare to name a few) but most are normal people trying to cope with the problems caused by unexpected longevity.

* Ogmo from ''VideoGame/{{Jumper}}'' series can live for an undetermined long time, if he [[NintendoHard doesn't get killed first]]. The first game shows him already capable of surviving over 100 years in an AbandonedLaboratory. The third shows he can survive millenia of spaceflight (possibly thanks to the magic of UsefulNotes/{{relativity}}).

** The races of Mer are implied to have longer natural lifespans than the races of Men, who have lifespans along the lines of real life humans. ''Exactly'' how much longer is unclear, however, and largely inconsistent. Even without counting the [[WizardsLiveLonger magically enhanced lifespans]] of certain specific Mer, there are examples living naturally for centuries. Barenziah is approaching 500 in her appearance in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'''s ''Tribunal'' expansion, and though noticeably aged, she is appears no worse for the wear than a 60 or so year old human. In the backstory, Nerevar is in his 200s by the time of The Battle of Red Mountain and still acting as a FrontlineGeneral. Several Altmer and Dunmer characters in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' mention having been present for events like the Red Year (200 years prior to ''Skyrim'') or mention having served in the military for 150 years, but none look any older than middle-aged.

** The various Mer (elven) races can easily live into the triple digits, with a few managing to live into the thousands, though it's noted these are outliers. The Tribunal of Morrowind was at least several thousand years old by the time of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', but this was explicitly a result of them gaining divinity. On the more natural side, Queen Barenziah of Morrowind was known to have lived into her 400s by the time of her (presumed) death.

** The Zoras in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' are implied to to be able to live over 200 years. One Zora you talk to says he's now 130 years old and how it's been 100 years since he saw Link. The Sheikah are also longer lived than Hylians, reaching about 150 years on average, and that's not counting characters like [[TheDragon Master Kohga]] and the Shrine Monks who have reached more than 10,000 years through supernatural means.
