Transcending]]. One alien race known as the Silent Ones have discovered how to completely halt the aging process, and the ruling class of their society is made up of said "immortals". They keep some regularly aging members of their race around for breeding purposes though (the immortality treatment causes severe birth defects in the offspring of immortals).

** In Book 14 the company discovered the ruins of another ancient civilization whose members were essentially immortal. [[spoiler: After a few of them were reanimated they introduced nanotech that could prolong life indefinitely and make one very difficult to kill to the present galactic society. Much of Book 16 muses on the ramifications of a society of immortals.]]

* In ''VideoGame/{{Battleborn}}'', those who have attained immortality via the Jennerit's Sustainment process are called the Sustained and within the FantasticCasteSystem of the Jennerit culture, they are at the top. Because of the huge energy consumption required to just make a single Sustained, there is but a select number of these Sustained consisting only of those who been deemed worthy enough to be granted the privilege of immortality. Furthermore due to things such as the [[FantasticRacism Jennerit's view of most other races]], Sustained are typically of the Jennerit race and it's a rather rare and quite unusual case when a Sustained happens to be a non-Jennerit.

* In Creator/EdgarRiceBurroughs' ''Literature/JohnCarterOfMars'', the Martian peoples are either [[TheAgeless ageless]] or least very LongLived, being capable of living hundreds of years, thanks to their advanced technology diseases and injury are easily recovered. Only a violent death can keep their population in check, [[DeathWorld and given the planet they live]], it happens a lot. However, by religious edict, those past 1000 years are required to take a sacred pilgrimage to Valley Dor, where its believed that they will find paradise.
** In the ''Amtor'' series, the [[VestigialEmpire Vepajans]] from planet Venus become immortal thanks to an life-extending drug that slows down aging indefinitely.

** To illustrate the difference this trope creates in mindset, there was a dialogue in an issue of ''Comicbook/TheAvengers'' where the Eternal Sersi was asked by one of her (mortal) teammates what the Eternals' beliefs regarding ghosts were. Sersi responded that the topic does not get discussed much in their culture -- because they don't die.

* The immortal Griffin family from the {{Nightside}} made a practice of throwing parties for other immortals, which attracted everything from demigods to fey to vampires. As thee Griffins were snobs and only the upper-crust attendees were likely to be invited more than once, such parties were effectively a ''High'' Society of Immortals.

* This is the goal of "The Great Plan" in the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fanfic, ''The Great Alicorn Hunt''. The plan is to, basically, cure old age by turning anyone and everyone they can into immortal alicorns, and also find a way to grant immortality to those who can't be "alicornified".
