* ''The Benchwarmers'' features one of the rival teams getting Carlos, a fifty-year-old Dominican man who claims he's twelve (using a piece of paper with his photo and the words "I am 12" written in crayon; the paper holds a dollar bill to bribe the umpire with). He even drinks alcohol ''and'' has a son.

Added DiffLines:

* In one episode of ''Series/{{House}}'', a young man brings in his apparently mentally ill mother for treatment. House eventually notices little details about the guy hinting that he's not as old as he pretends and eventually confronts him. He turns out to be a fifteen year old boy masquerading as an adult so he can support his mother. This leads to some drama when someone places a call from the hospital to Child Services to pick him up, and the boy immediately blames House. This leads to the EurekaMoment [[spoiler:since House finds out the boy's mom made the call because she wanted to free her son from the burden of caring for her. House realizes she's not crazy after all, and that her apparent mental illness is actually a symptom of something else.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice,'' the Justice League are largely annoyed when they discover that [[{{Shazam}} Billy Batson]] (see above) was actually a ten-year-old with an OlderAlterEgo. He defends himself by saying that he never actually claimed to be older (which WonderWoman writes off as a "lie of omission"). It's also implied that the Justice League didn't technically have an age restriction before this came up. They vote whether or not to expel Billy from the League [[spoiler:but let him stay]].
