* An episode of ''WordGirl'', "Granny's Book Club" had Granny May forced to retire, due to the by-laws of the supervillain union all the villains belong to. However, the rules stated she could stave off retirement if she captured Wordgirl and presented her to the rest of the villains, so she set up the titular book club to capture the word loving hero.

* '' Series/SamuraiGourmet'' downplays this. Although the opening of the series features Kasumi forgetting that he's retired, the rest portrays him as embracing his well-earned free time with just a little wistfulness and difficulty adjusting. What really makes Kasumi a Reluctant Retiree is that it takes effort to embrace his new role within JapanesePoliteness: The old man is supposed to be one person in the room who can speak out of turn and make life easier for everyone, and he hasn't exactly trained for that. Fortunately, he's [[WhatWouldXDo read a lot of samurai stories]].

* ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'' is all about superheroes forced into retirement by the federal government. Some, like Elastigirl, are content to put away their costumes and live as ordinary citizens. Others, like Mr. Incredible and Frozone, continue fighting crime clandestinely.

* ''TheRaccoons'' has a twist to the plot in the de facto GrandFinale where Cyril Sneer has a serious health episode due to overwork and his age and retires in favor of his son, Cedric. Eventually, Cyril still wants to help his son so badly that Cedric is forced to all but physically restrain him lest he kill himself with overexertion. Eventually, the episode ends with Father and Son compromising with Cyril partially coming out of retirement as a partner of Cedric who presumably will carry the bulk of the workload.

* An episode of ''Series/StarTrekTheAnimatedSeries'' features Robert April, who was the first captain of the ''Enterprise'' (NCC-1701), and his wife Sarah, who was the ship's first Chief Medical Officer. Commodore April, now a Federation ambassador, has reached the mandatory retirement age of 75, and is not happy about it. The Aprils are on board as passengers when ''Enterprise'' enters a parallel universe where people age backwards at an accelerated rate, and they save the ship by taking command after everyone else has regressed to childhood or infancy. In recognition of this, Federation officials agree to review his mandatory retirement and consider letting him continue to serve as ambassador.
