* The reason the Elite Vampire Council in ''Webcomic/CharbyTheVampirate'' are trying to recruit the eponymous vampire is that he is older and stronger than any of them.

** This has been canon of Superman for quite a while, with the explanation that as he grows older, his body becomes more accustomed to absorbing solar radiation and builds up greater stores of it. Many origin stories show his powers developing over the course of his youth, and FutureBadass Superman tend to be measurably stronger (this doubles as an easy explanation for writers to develop his power further). The pinnacle of this would likely be the Superman of the non-canon story ''Strange Visitor'', who is [[TimeAbyss billions of years old]] and shown to be stronger than even [[RealityWarper Mr. Mxyzptlk]].

** In fact, in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 2}}'' the Super Mutants of Broken Hills are said to be slowly going weak and senile. This is probably due to being infected with a different strain of FEV (found in the Mariposa Military Base) than the mutants in the Capital Wasteland.

* The [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe asari]] in ''Franchise/MassEffect'' are said to show this, at least with regards to their biotics, which grow in power as they reach the matriarch part of their life cycle. Kaidan Alenko suggests that this is not restricted to asari, noting the increase in his own biotic abilities over the previous three years.

Similarly, krogan continue to grow larger and stronger with age. Of the three krogan who join up with Shepard and Ryder, two of them are well over 1000 years old.

* Implied in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11803928/1/Challenger Challenger]]'' when Professor Oak's old Charizard [[CurbStompBattle completely trounces]] Ash's team, half of which is fully evolved. Said Charizard is also noted as being much larger than Ash's.

* Vampires in ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' grow more powerful as they age. Vampire Ancients are the oldest and strongest vampire mooks/bosses, and Vampire Lords of Skyrim, who are the first and oldest vampires of their entire clan and received their vampirism directly from the evil god Molag Bal, are the strongest named vampire characters.

* Vampires ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** While there are some regional variations
in ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' grow more powerful as exactly their powers work, vampires tend to play this straight. Throughout the series, vampires tend to be TheAgeless (though if they age. go long periods without feeding, they tend to be come irrevocably insane and feral). Vampire Ancients "Ancients" are the oldest and strongest vampire mooks/bosses, and vampires in Tamriel. ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'''s ''Dawnguard'' DLC introduces Vampire Lords of Skyrim, who are the first and Lords, Tamriel's oldest vampires of their entire clan and who received their vampirism directly from the evil god [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] Molag Bal, [[MonsterProgenitor the patron of vampires]].
** In terms of their religious beliefs, the [[OurElvesAreBetter Altmer (High Elves)]] invert this trope. They believe that the other "lesser" races of Mer (Elves)
are the strongest named vampire characters.result of "degeneration" over the ages, with each generation being weaker than the last as they are one more removed from their Aedric/Ehlnofey ancestors. The Altmer [[SocialDarwinist actively try to breed themselves back into their ideal]], which includes killing undesirable progeny. (In their minds, they are releasing the soul so it has a chance to be reincarnated in a better form.) And don't even get them ''started'' on [[FeelingOppressedByTheirExistence the races of Men]]...

* A few of the legendary Dragon-type {{Pokemon}} count, but the ''very'' old [[GiantFlyer Rayquaza]] stands out the most. Although it had lost nearly all of its teeth through the decades, it still flies and battles as if it hasn't aged a bit. Not to mention its high attack stats. The Creation Trio have special mention here, since they literally created the ''universe'' itself and still live on to present day. Although, that's probably because two of them are literally [[PhysicalGod gods,]] while the third one is [[DracoLich undead.]]

** This is especially evident with Junior, who starts out like [[http://i1235.photobucket.com/albums/ff435/Soundpulse/Baby_Godzilla.jpg this]] and grows up into [[http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/godzilla/images/e/e8/Godzilla_Jr.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20080407133825 this.]]

* Liir from ''SwordOfTheStars'' have this; the older they grow, the larger they get and the more powerful their psionic abilities become. The only thing limiting their size, and eventually causing their death, is the SquareCubeLaw. [[spoiler:Of course, some didn't like that last bit, preferring to enslave the younger ones to make them build spacesuits for them, so they could live in space and remove that last limit on their immortality. Very few remain of those who did this, but just one can wreck whole armies]].

* Immortals from ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' continue to get older, smarter, stronger, [[WhoWantsToLiveForever more bored]] and [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity less sane]] until the point comes where they basically become [[PersonOfMassDestruction People Of Mass Destruction]]. To prevent this, they voluntarily undergo a kind of ritualistic death/rebirth cycle every couple of centuries to lose most of their power and memories so they can start over and keep things interesting. A significant portion of the
latter half (after the death of [[spoiler: Damien]]) of the story is driven by [[spoiler: [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Pandora Chaos Raven]]]], an immortal who refuses to let go of her accumulated power, and seems to be approaching EldritchAbomination territory.
