According to ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}'' has Gehrman, an old, [[RamblingOldManMonologue senile]] and [[AnArmAndALeg peg-legged]] {{retired|Badass}} [[HunterOfMonsters Hunter]] who teaches new Hunters the manual, he's 103 when ropes. [[spoiler: And if you turn down his offer to MercyKill you, he'll demonstrate that [[ObfuscatingStupidity the first tournament starts.senility is an act]], [[ObfuscatingDisability the loss of one leg]] [[LightningBruiser has not slowed him down]] and his retirement has not so much as dulled the edge of The First Hunter.]]

** Mihaly in [[''VideoGame/AceCombat7SkiesUnknown'']] is old enough to have grey hair, but still shoots down enemies like it's nothing.

** In the same game, [[spoiler: Pops the resident mechanic]] turns out to be legendary Belkan ace Wolfgang "Huckebein the Raven" Buchner, Bernitz's personal Nemesis. And he still got it, as he manages to escape an enemy squadron in end-game planes using ''only his skill and a trainer jet''. He is in his late fifties.
** Belka seems to love this trope since ''VideoGame/AceCombatZeroTheBelkanWar'' has two more: squadron leaders Dietrich Kellerman and [[spoiler: Anton Kupchenko]]. Kellerman is the founder of Belka's best military flight school.[[spoiler: Kupchenko is both [[BigBad the founder of A World With No Boundaries]] ''and'' [[MadScientist the founder of Project Pendragon, which gave birth to all Belkan superweapons]]]]. They're respectively 45 and 48 and can turn you to scrap in a heartbeat.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Franchise/AceCombat'' gives us Old Aces. In a line of work where fighter pilots usually retire or get promoted away from a cockpit around their mid-to-late-thirties, we have:
** Ashley Bernitz, aka [[spoiler: 8492th squadron leader / Grabacr 1]] in ''VideoGame/AceCombat5TheUnsungWar'', a 30-years veteran who is still a top-notch pilot [[spoiler: and leading member of TheConspiracy]] at the ripe old age (by active serviceman standards) of 53.
** In the same game, [[spoiler: Pops the resident mechanic]] turns out to be legendary Belkan ace Wolfgang "Huckebein the Raven" Buchner, Bernitz's personal Nemesis. And he still got it, as he manages to escape an enemy squadron in end-game planes using ''only his skill and a trainer jet''. He is in his late fifties.

** Colbey Calistinsson trilogy. Never mind that he is 67, in an era where people seldom lived to 40. He was perfectly calm about taking out a group of 15, training a 16 year old girl in the art of the sword, fighting a group of 100 with only Santagithi to help him, and [[spoiler: an army of 10000 quaracks, by himself]]. ** The Renshai race, which Colbey was a part of, almost never lived to the age of 25.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' features a few examples:
** [[BadassGrandpa Eagun]] is FamedInStory as one of the strongest trainers in the Orre region, to the point that while visiting Agate Village (one of the few safe havens from Cipher's influence), Team Rocket leader Giovanni is wary of taking him on.
** [[NeverMessWithGranny Ultima]] in the Sevii Islands trains starter Pokémon to unlock the full potential of the Ultimate Moves. Her own Pokémon are not to be taken lightly.
** Also Mabel, who in this story is a Kalos League Conference winner, and trains her (honorary) grandkids to master Mega Evolution.

* Subverted in ''TheWiseMansFear'' where Shehyn, the elderly teacher of an order of legendary fighters, battles one of her much younger students, the student much more energetic vs Shehyn's measured movements - and Shehyn loses. Kvothe wonders if this means the one who beat her is the leader now, which the member he's talking to finds amusing. Not only would it be ridiculous to base their leadership off of who wins a single fight, but Shehyn is very old. It's not realistic to expect her to always beat someone with much more energy. Of course, Shehyn is still extremely good.

* Master Zen, the ancient martial arts master in ''[[TonyHawkProSkater Tony Hawk's American Wasteland]]''. For some reason, his teaching translate very well to skateboarding while still conveying supernatural abilities. He's also a total goofball, in spite of his wisdom.

* Played straight in ''PhantasyStar Universe'' with Headmaster Nav - the only difference being that he's a CAST (an android) who only ''looks'' like an old man. He's still almost 200 years old, though.
