* In ''Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children'', the peculiar children are protected inside "time loops." The main group of protagonists have been living September 3, 1940 over and over for 70 years. If they go outside the time loop, into the 21st century, they'll age within a matter of hours. This wouldn't necessarily cause death immediately, since some of them would be in their eighties or nineties, but it's seen as undesirable anyway.

* Downplayed in ''Webcomic/TrueVillains'': the 87-year-old {{Necromancer}} Elia's body is "held together" by Dark magic, which means she collapses from organ failure the moment the effect is disrupted. However, a healer is able to keep her alive until she wakes up and fixes the spells. She retains her youthful appearance all the while -- because it came from a young lady whose skin she'd stolen.

* Averted with Gile's aunts in ''ComicBook/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''. His aunts used magic to maintain their youth, but all the end of magic did was make them start aging normally again. It's still bad news, since they both made deals with demons that would make them forfeit their souls at the first sign of aging. Not long after they get their first gray hairs, a bunch of demons come knocking on their door.
