* Most ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}'' characters are 100 000 years old, yet many of them are seen acting like kids. In the case of the Matoran Universe races, this makes some sense, since they were created that way and most of them cannot age, at least normally. Outside that universe, where beings are born fully organic, this comes off as weird. Especially Gresh, a rookie fighter who acts like a teenager, despite being over 100 000 years old.

**More a case of OlderThanTheyLook, Aragorn: in an Extended Edition scene from ''The Two Towers'', Eowyn is surprised to learn that he is actually 87 years old. He ''doesn't'' look ageless, however: he looks like a very fit and active man in his late 40's, his hair flecked with a little gray. This is because he is a Dunedain, "blessed with long life" - but not ''eternal'' life. The books explain that the Dunedain live about three times longer than regular humans (Aragorn ultimately lived to be over 210 years old).

* And then there's the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taxus_baccata Yew]], a major contender in the Oldest Living Thing stakes. In Britain, many parish churches have yews in the grounds and there are many folk explanations, the most common being that they were planted to provide the close-grained, flexible timber required to make longbows for the English army. However, given how painfully slowly yew trees grow this is clearly nonsense. The trees weren't planted in the churchyard, the church and churchyard were planted in the yew groves that were already very old and sacred to the kind of guys who built Stonehenge.

* The Greenland shark puts all over vertebrates to shame. Some specimens are up to ''five hundred'' years old. That's almost twice as much as the oldest sea turtle!

** The Wizards (and Sauron) are all [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Maiar]], and so are literally older than the universe, having sang it into being.

** This is lampshaded and played with in ''WesternAnimation/Cars3''. Lightning [=McQueen=] is now a legendary racer and winner of seven consecutive Piston Cups, yet he looks the same as he did as a rookie (even sounding the same), and kept that since day one. He is repeatedly teased about his age and said to be old, despite the fact he looks young.

* Almost every character in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'' series, given to the point they never show any signs of aging year after year, keeping the same exact appearance. Taken UpToEleven with Doc Hudson, who's an elderly car but looked the same as he did back then when he was a race car, fifty years apart.

** [[spoiler: Sinister]] hasn't aged in at least a century, and comments he makes about having traveled the Silk Road suggest he's much, much older.

* ''Film/{{Thor}}'': Asgardians can live hundreds, if not thousands of years and still be physically capable of feats of strength. The same thing applies to Frost Giants. If Loki was born about the same time as the battle in the prologue, that makes him over 1040 years old. In [[Film/ThorTheDarkWorld The sequel]], he comments that Asgardians can live for approximately 5000 years.

* Wolverine in the ''Film/XMen'' movies. All because of his Super Healing Factor. He was born in 1823, but as of today, he still physically appears to be a buff as hell mid-to-late 30s. His powers constantly rejuvenate his cellular integrity rendering him seemingly ageless. He's not by any means immortal, he just ages at an incredibly slow rate, if at all.

* The [[PhysicalGod Sources]] Lys and Sin in ''Franchise/{{Noob}}''. Lys is described as a young woman in the novels and called a "kid" by a character describing her at some point. Sin looks like he's twelve according to his own descriptions. Both get somewhat of a physical AgeLift when they show up in the movies (mostly because the person planned for Sin had to hit puberty sooner of later), but still looks quite young for their multiple-millenia age.
