* ''LightNovel/TheUnexploredSummonBloodSign'' has this for Kyousuke (human) and the White Queen (EldritchAbomination with CompleteImmortality). The former might not want this relationship, but the latter [[{{Yandere}} very much does]], and it's uncertain how she plans on handling this issue. Early on, she makes a seemingly-flippant suggestion that she plans on [[AscendedToAHigherPlaneOfExistence making him into an immortal like her]], but it hasn't been brought up since.

** Indeed, this trope seems to be the general source of angst in Alice x Marisa pairings (the famous "Marisa Stole the Precious Thing" remix by {{IOSYS}}, who did the one above as well, contains the line "You and I are of a different kind"). Which is all good and well, until FridgeLogic sets in and you realize that, under [[{{Retcon}} current canon]], Alice USED to be human but became youkai via magical research, and Marisa has access to Alice's notes/materials/Alice herself, AND Marisa has been independently searching for an immortality potion.

* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' fics sometimes play with it too, usually focused on the relationship between national personifications and their most beloved historical/artistic/etc. figures. France/Saint Joan of Arc is probably the most common, given the later's five-second appearance in the show; but lots of famous rulers or national heroes get represented. (like Prussia and UsefulNotes/FrederickTheGreat, Austria and Creator/WolfgangAmadeusMozart, possibly Russia as the target of a PrecociousCrush from Great Duchess Anastasia, etc.) There was even [[TearJerker heartrending fanvid]] montage of a bunch of them floating around for a while.

Added DiffLines:

* Eventually between [[spoiler:[[WillTheyOrWontThey Margery Daw and Keisaku Satou]]]] in ''LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana''. As [[spoiler:a Flame Haze, Margery]] has been around for a couple centuries, while [[spoiler:Keisaku starts off as an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent]]. It also comes off as a [[spoiler:MayDecemberRomance, since Margery [[OlderThanTheyLook looks like]] she's in her mid-twenties]].

* In another series by Creator/DavidWeber, this can result frequently. In particular half-elves typically marry other half-elves or full elves because otherwise this trope will result, and also the children won't inherit the elven long lifespan.

* In another series ''Lierature/WarGods'' by Creator/DavidWeber, this can result frequently. In particular half-elves typically marry other half-elves or full elves because otherwise this trope will result, and also the children won't inherit the elven long lifespan. (A human and an elf, two half elves, or a elf and a half elf makes a half elf with a 400 year life span, while the oldest elves date to the cleft point 8,000 years ago from which all elves originate). This is also a serious issue with Wild Wizards, who have lifespans well over a thousand years, although its rare for multiple wild wizards to exist at the same time. All the other races of man (all of whom live longer than humans) can also breed with mainline humans, with the lifespan of their issue being all over the place.

* In the ''TransformersFilmSeries'' fandom, it's been touched upon multiple times concerning the Sam/Bumblebee pairing. Rarer, but was still touched upon, in the [[TransformersAnimated SarixBumblebee]] pairing. [[spoiler:Of course, after the revelation that she was a techno-organic, this pretty much vanished in fanfiction.]]

* In many ''Franchise/HarvestMoon'' games, your character has the option to marry the Harvest Goddess, and occasionally, other supernatural figures. (In ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonFriendsOfMineralTown More Friends of Mineral Town]],'' you can marry a Kappa, and in ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonDS DS]],'' you can marry a princess who's ReallySevenHundredYearsOld.) While the Harvest Goddess is generally a fairly distant wife (she mostly lives in her designated spring), she's still happy to see you when you come around. There's also various incarnations of the Witch Princess in several games, who's [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a witch, acts like a princess,]] and is ReallySevenHundredYearsOld. ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonAnimalParade Animal Parade]]'' introduced [[DistaffCounterpart male versions]] of the Witch Princess and the Harvest Goddess--the Wizard (no word on whether he's a prince or not) and the Harvest King. In ''Animal Parade'' some of the Harvest God's post-marriage lines really drive the mortality difference home.

* ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'' has Jones, who's almost as old as the planet Earth and completely invulnerable, and she's currently in a relationship with the normal human James Eglamore. She's had numerous similar relationships in the past. She also claims that she's [[EmotionlessGirl incapable of emotion]], and merely copies the behavior of humans around her to better fit in-- but her lovers don't seem to mind.

Added DiffLines:

** On the opposite end in terms of life-span and [[FieryRedhead temperament]], Annie's mother (and James' ex-girlfriend) Surma died only ten years after giving birth to Annie because she's half-fire elemental and her "life-force" transferred to her child. This will eventually happen to Annie when she has a kid, and assuming Surma died in her thirties Annie's life is already half-over.

* Discussed in ''Tron: Invasion'' (a ''very'' loose adaptation of ''[[{{Tron20}} Tron 2.0]]''). Jet Bradley asks Mercury (a female Program) to promise never to worship him (Programs revering humans like we revere Gods), saying that humans age and die eventually. However, a Program's typical lifespan is about five or six human years to a human male's eighty, a fact that isn't lost on Mercury.
