* By the time of ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', many of the Z-Warriors have essentially stepped down from actually fighting. This is mostly because they know that Goku and Vegeta completely outclass them and, for a few of them, they actually have families who they prioritize. Gohan is hit the worst of this as, since he prioritized his wife and newborn child along with his studies over training, his fighting strength went down the crapper, being unable to sustain basic Super Saiyan form for long periods of time. With the exception of Gohan, many of these guys are still fighting prime, including Master Roshi, who last honestly fought ''way'' back during the middle part of ''Dragon Ball''

* One of the NPCs found in ''TabletopGame/InNomine'' is The Old Guy, a warrior angel in Austin, Texas, who's old enough to remember dinosaurs. He's away from the front lines and drastically weakened from what he used to be, due to the poisoning of a tree his life is bound to, but he hasn't lost any of his cunning or his skill, as he'd be glad to remind any demon stupid enough to come onto his radar.

* Hal Monroe of ''Podcast/RollToBreathe'', Epoch's mentor, used to be Dr. Watt, a powerful Bronze Age hero with nanomachines for blood. A death among his team turned him cynical and paranoid and caused him to retire. However, when he does fight he's shown to still be as strong and capable as ever.
**Diamond Joe, the mayor, is a Silver Age hero-turned-politician. When the team bodyguards him he is an endless source of support, and while he doesn't have as much endurance as he used to, he is still incredibly strong and his skin can still turn to diamond.
