* In the ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' episode "Jack and the Lava Monster," Jack defeats a warrior who had been immortal for thousands of years as a punishment from Aku. He immediately ages to look about 80, but that's still pretty spry for someone in their thousands.

He immediately ages to look about 80, but that's still pretty spry for someone in their thousands. This is exactly what he wanted, though, since it allowed his suffering to come to an end and he could finally join his friends and family in Valhalla--valkyries descend from the heavens to take him to the afterlife right in front of Jack.

Added DiffLines:

* Averted in ''Literature/TheAgeOfFive''. An important item is hidden in an anti magic zone to keep immortals out. However immortals have inertia and simply age normally for the few moments it takes them to walk in and out.

** Count Dracula himself, who is believed to be centuries old, turns to dust when he finally meets his end.
** On the other hand, Lucy, who was a vampiress only for a few days, retains her youthful beauty when Van Helsing puts her to rest.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' left inconclusive the effect of losing the [[PhysicalGod immortality]] granted by Lorkhan's Heart. Dagoth UR [[NeverFoundTheBody disappeared in a pool of lava beneath a collapsed cavern.]] For the Tribunal, however, Vivec mentions that they're able to [[BroughtDownToBadass persist as mortals]] with a [[SemiDivine trace of their divinity]] still in-tact thanks to the [[GodNeedsPrayerBadly faith of their followers]]. Despite this, [[spoiler: Almalexia god mad and kills Sotha Sil, then is herself by the Nerevarine in the ''Tribunal'' expansion, while Vivec mysteriously disappears a few years later, so it remains uncertain just how much "inertia" they really had]].

* Avalon Hill's ''Powers & Perils'' game, ''Heroes'' magazine Volume 1 #2 adventure "Doom Manor". Anyone who lives in Doom Manor will cease aging for as long as they stay there. However, if they ever leave they will [[RapidAging immediately become their true age]]. Several of the {{NPC}}s in the Manor have been in it for so long that they will die of old age if it happens to them.

* Averted (and, to an extent, '''inverted''') in ''Franchise/CodeGeass''. When V.V. loses his Code, he just dies, though that's almost certainly from the injuries sustained in a HumongousMecha battle earlier that episode. When C.C.'s Code is temporarily sealed, she mentally regresses to the last point in her life where she was mortal -- which was when she was 10 years old and living in the Dark Ages. Dialog in a later episode implies that this has happened to her before.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/SimsalaGrimm'' episode "Snow White", the Evil Queen breaks her mirror, which was the only thing keeping her young, in a rage. Then, she starts to age rapidly ([[OffModel with her hands remaining as they were before that]]). Fortunately, there's no FamilyUnfriendlyDeath here: she just disappears in a blue zap.

Added DiffLines:

* DeathIsCheap in the world of ''VideoGame/FallenLondon''; those that die in the Neath tend to get better, provided that whatever killed them didn't render their body ''too'' unusable. This is because [[spoiler:the light of the Sun is what normally enforces such laws as "people die when they are killed"]], meaning that anyone who has died in the Neath can never return to the surface, lest the Sun's rays shrivel them like a slug. In fact, if you are foolhardy enough to [[spoiler:Seek Mr Eaten's Name]], you will eventually find yourself with the opportunity to do just that -- and yes, [[PressXToDie it really kills your character permanently]].
