* On "Series/{{Game of Thrones}}" several actors are just growing to fast in real life, despite they have to stay the same age in the series..

** It is said sometimes among some child actors that when the boobs show up, you're treated completely differently and it's harder to get jobs.

** ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' has this trope in spades; none of the characters seem to grow any older than the age in which they were introduced, and some (like Tails or Charmy Bee) actually had their ages and mannerisms adjusted to be younger than what they were before. The comics avert this, however; a short-lived TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture storyline (set 25 years after the main comics... and is ironically non-canon) shows a great deal of the Freedom Fighters older and wiser, and at least one character (Amy Rose) used magic to actually [[PlotRelevantAgeUp age herself up]] in order to become more active in the comic.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse''. Time in the show progresses roughly with the real world, with the kids' appearances and [[VocalEvolution changing]] as they become older. It is possible that the trope will still apply to Steven itself, one of his power being to [[EmotionalMaturityIsPhysicalMaturity physically age as much as he is mentally]]. As long as the writers want to keep him a young child, they could! In the episode "Nightmare Hospital", Connie mentions that it's been nearly a year since [[spoiler: she wears glasses without lens]].

It's later shown Steven began the series at [[spoiler:twelve]] and he turns [[spoiler:fourteen]] in a second season episode, "Steven's Birthday". [[spoiler:He is physically [[OlderThanTheyLook several years older]] than he looks however whether he's stunted forever is ambiguous because he seems to be hitting puberty.]]

* The kids in ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' never seem to age through 100 episodes and one movie, despite the fact that judging by the order of their holidays, they've been in 4th grade for 2-3 years. (Christmas->Valentine's Day->Halloween->Thanksgiving->Veterans Day->Spring Break->April Fool's Day -- In that order)

* Found of all places in the [[Manga/SailorMoon Sailor Moon Manga]] Chibi-usa when she first shows up? Looking about 6? She's over 900 years old. The developmental issues of this horrifying condition are basically never dealt with.

* An infamous and tragic example: Buffy from ''Series/FamilyAffair''. Actress Anissa Jones was contractually obligated to play the role and make promotional appearances with her [[SuppressedMammaries breasts bound]], her hair in GirlishPigtails, and clutching the Mrs. Beasley doll even as she grew into her teens. This is often cited as a major factor in her eventual death by drug overdose.

** In ''VideoGame/TheSims2'', only the sims in the household you're currently playing as will age; so unless you regularly switch between households, it will likely end up with your elderly sim's old friends from elementary school still being children.

** Rarely characters have ended up dying of natural causes, but this has never happened to most of the characters at the Springfield Retirement Home, such as Grandpa or Jasper, despite both of them having been in World Wars previously.

** To get an idea of just how ludicrous this became, if the characters actually aged in real time like people in the real world do, Arthur & his third-grade friends would be ''27'' years old, Prunella and the other fourth graders (and the kids held back, like Binky) would be ''28'', and the four-year-olds like D.W. and the Tibble twins would be 15.
