* [[PsychoElectro Colonel Volgin]] and [[{{Bishounen}} Major Raikov]] in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater''. Volgin's old enough to have fought in World War II (the story takes place in the sixties) and Raikov seems to be in his twenties. Given the [[DepravedBisexual sort]] [[PsychoElectro of person]] Volgin is, this may be one of the least potentially squicky things about their relationship (although there are slash fans who [[FetishFuel like that sort of thing]]).

* Presuming normal human lifespans, the partners must be at least 30 years apart in age and at different stages of life. Presuming Human-normal normal human lifespans, the older needs to be '''at least 60''' and of a senior citizen age. Similarly, the younger can be '''no more than 35''', because the younger one is in the spring of their life.

* The ages are from when the relationship ''started''. If a 0-year-old and an 85-year-old are a couple, this trope would qualify if they've been together for 30 years, but not if they started dating last week.

* The difference has to be noted ''in Universe'' as an unusually large age gap. For live-action media, the actual ages of the actors/actresses are immaterial. Many a Franchise/JamesBond movie involves the spy macking on a girl whose actress is young enough to be the actor's daughter, but Bond's age is left deliberately vague, and the gap is never brought up.

* For creatures with extended (or very brief) lifespans, apply the above rules generally. The older should be ''vastly'' more experienced than the younger in practically all ways. For example, a 1000 year old vampire dating one still within a human lifespan would apply as this trope, but not if dating a 500 year old one.

* The difference has to be noted ''in Universe'' as an unusually large age gap. For live-action media, the actual ages of the actors/actresses are immaterial. Male actors being significantly older than their female co-stars is an all-too-common double-standard of Hollywood. It's the age of the ''characters'' that matters.
* This is a Romance Relationship trope. There has to be an actual romantic relationship of at least a modest length to qualify; brief flings or one-off encounters don't qualify.
