* The title character of ''Film/JohnWick'' is definitely this, being a legendarily badass assassin who had been retired for five years prior to the film's beginning. However, now, [[MemeticMutation he's thinkin' he's back]], and is fully prepared to carve through [[OneManArmy several hundred people]].

* 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.

* As in the other incarnations Alfred shows to be a pretty competent combatant in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', especially in the JamesBond-like episode "The Lion and the Unicorn" where he alone defeats two mooks.

* Buddy Cheque, Abner Dubbleplay, and Erik Stream from ''BackyardSports''. Barry Dejay seems like this, but he's not officially retired; he just has a broken ankle (and is a SmallNameBigEgo rather than a badass).

* Scrooge [=McDuck=]. In ''ComicBook/TheLifeAndTimesOfScroogeMcDuck'', which follows Scrooge's entire life until Donald and his nephews are introduced to his old self, having become a shadow of his former self. Thanks to having to take action against a new generation of Beagle Boys however, he gets an AdrenalineMakeover and returns a badass (at least as much of a badass an 80 year old man can be.) ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales2017'' similarly has him retired from adventuring until the nephews bring up how much of a big deal he ''used'' to be, prompting him to plan a new adventure in part to salvage his ego. (The first ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' series completely averts this trope, however.)

** In ''WesternAnimation/Cars3'', Lightning meets a quartet of very old race cars in Thomasville, three of which were old opponents to Doc, and one of them in particular being his crew chief Smokey. [[Zig-zagged with Lightning himself near the end -- since he shared the victory with Cruz Ramirez, he chooses to continue racing, but decides to spend the rest of the current season as her crew chief first, making him sort of semi-retired.]]
