* Sten from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' acts like this although you never get a grasp of how old he actually is (digging in character files with the official developer's toolkit lists him as merely '''30''', making him ''younger'' than Alistair and actually an aversion of this trope - [[YoungerThanTheyLook not that you'd ever guess that from looking at him]]).

* ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'' has numerous old soldiers: mechwarriors who fought in the 4th Succession War in 3028 showed up to fight in the Fedcom Civil War in 3062. But the character who did the best job embodying this trope would probably be Natasha Kerensky [[TheRedBaron The Black Widow]]. At the time of her death in 3057, she was 84 years old and not only was still considered one of the best mechwarriors who ever lived but was also still [[GrandmaWhatMassiveHotnessYouHave widely regarded as a sex symbol as well]].
