* 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.

* Franchise/TheDCU {{Elseworlds}} comic ''ComicBook/KingdomCome'' shows a still-youthful {{Superman}} long after Lois Lane's death, and eventually [[spoiler:builds up a romance between him and the explicitly-immortal WonderWoman]]. He's still more or less in his prime, but his hair has begun to grey at the temples. And it's not like Lois died of old age, she was [[spoiler: murdered by The Joker]].

** Lady Margolotta (vampire) and Lord Vetinari ([[ActuallyNotAVampire allegedly human]]) might have had some sort of romance. He suggests the relationship broke up or never really went anywhere because she's "much older", although he still apparently had [[NotSoStoic feelings]] for her years later. They first met when he was quite young, and she eternally looks like an attractive woman of a certain age. By the time they meet again in ''Discworld/UnseenAcademicals'', he probably looks about as old as she does if not older.

* 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.

* According to ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild Breath of the Wild]]'', (Sea) Zora age slower than Hylians. Hylians seem to have similar life expectancies to humans however Zora can be over a century and still be young. This means that Link's and Ruto's relationship from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' retroactively counts. Ruto [[ArrangedMarriage arranges herself to be married with Link]] when they're children. Nothing presumably ever actually came out of it though. As a teenage Ruto has to put aside her feelings due to both of their duties, and Link [[spoiler:is sent back in time to before they met afterwards.]] Link doesn't save her again so it's unlikely she developed her crush in the Child Timeline.
