** 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.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'' gives us Doc Hudson the Fabulous Hudson Hornet, a former racing legend who won three Piston Cups. After suffering a crash in '54, he was forced to give up racing completely after being replaced by a rookie. Despite this, he still has a lot of racing left in him and uses his skills to tutor the protagonist Lightning [=McQueen=] and acts as his crew chief.

* Julius Belmont in ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaChroniclesOfSorrow''. He's fifty-five years old in ''Aria'', and has been out of practice for thirty-six years, but the minute Dracula's back in the castle?

* [[GentleGiant Sweden]] of ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'', as a personification of [[UsefulNotes/{{Sweeden}} the country]], was once a terror, controlling the Baltic region and Scandinavia (in fact, he was known as "The Lion of Northern Europe" and "The Supreme Ruler of Scandinavia"), and in one instance defeated an alliance of ''five'' countries/their personifications. [[note]]Norway and Denmark, Poland-Lithuania, Russia, France, and Spain[[/note]] In the present, though, he's calmed down considerably, puts his efforts and strength toward welfare, and is fond of making furniture and decorative arts.

** [[TrueFinalBoss Red]] in ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver''/''Crystal'' and their remakes is one; the previous PlayerCharacter and champion, despite being only 14 years old, he waits at the top of Mt. Silver, a perpetually snowy mountain and the last area of the game, and has one of the most powerful Pokemon teams in the history of the series, and the highest-level Pokemon that any NPC trainer has had outside of battle facilities (his Pikachu); something that is being actively enforced, as shown when his Pikachu's level was bumped up in the remakes because [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Barry]]'s starter briefly overtook his Pikachu in levels. In ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'', now an adult, it seems he has returned to civilization taking open challengers again as one of the bosses of the Battle Tree post-game facility, alongside his old friend turned rival turned friend again [[ReformedBully Blue]].

* In ''Manga/PokemonAdventures'', [[spoiler: Professor Oak]] enters the Pokemon League finals as [[spoiler:"Dr. O"]]. He defeats Blue fairly easily. When Green tells him that he'll have to face either Green or Red in the finals, [[spoiler:Oak]] forfeits, saying he already won a championship and he doesn't need another.

** ''Professor Oak'' was [[WhatCouldHaveBeen intended]] to fight the player at some point in development of the first generation of games, as his team still exists in the game data (and can be fought with codes or glitches). He would have had a team of the highest level Pokemon in the game (tied with Mewtwo at Lv. 70) and be one of two trainers to have a decent team setup. Also, since Oak is permitted to enter the hall of fame it is subtly implied he was once a champion in the canon storyline too.
