* Eventually subverted in Mikhail Akhmanov's ''ArrivalsFromTheDark'' series, where the [[LizardFolk Dromi]] continue growing as they age, which initially does make them stronger with age. However, as they reach about 120 years old, the SquareCubeLaw takes into effect, making it very difficult to move, and they eventually get crushed by their own weight.

Added DiffLines:

*** A younger vampire can cheat the system by committing Diablerie (consuming the blood and ''soul'' of another vampire) on an older vampire. However, Diablerie is forbidden, and committing it stains your soul in such a way that other vampires will easily notice it. Even worse, the souls of powerful vampires may remain conscious after being consumed and later devour the Diablerist's soul from the inside.

* While many ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' characters are powerful due to winning the SuperpowerLottery, many more obtained it seemingly by virtue of being around for so long. 500 year old Remilia is almost as powerful as her sister Flandre, despite the latter possessing the second biggest StoryBreakerPower in the setting. [[PhysicalGod Kanako and Suwako]] are more than 2300 years old and with power worthy of their station, despite the years with [[GodsNeedPrayerBadly barely any faith to sustain them]]. Yuuka is noted as one of the oldest living youkai, as well as one of the strongest, despite her explicit ability being [[GreenThumb controlling plants]]. Eirin is a TimeAbyss and quite possibly only surpassed in power by [[RealityWarper Yukari]], with even [[GodModeSue the Watatsuki sisters]] respectful towards her. And Fujiwara no Mokou is a human who is now EX-Boss strength, due solely to the [[{{Immortality}} immense amount of time she has to practice]].

* ''FanFic/TheImmortalGame'': Applied in alicorns. Luna, the weakest of them all is a hundred years old -due to her imprisonment in the moon-, Terra is nine hundred years old, Celestia is more than a thousand years old and Titan is more than THREE THOUSAND YEARS OLD, which puts him to Discord´s level.

[[OurVampiresAreDifferent Vampires]], [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Dragons]], and [[WizardsAndWitches Wizards]] are three of the most common species to exhibit this, with ancient Dragons and elder Vampires possessing terrible power, and wizards having grown in mystical might that doesn't fade with age. This can cause a bit of FridgeLogic if the creature is stated not to be immortal: if dragons become more resilient as they age, then just ''how'' do they die of old age? [[FridgeBrilliance The answer could be the]] SquareCubeLaw.

* In ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' Jägermonsters become bigger and less human-looking as they age. We get a better look at these changes [[spoiler: when Vole is artificially aged a few hundred years and he goes from looking like a big guy with white skin, black eyes and small fangs to being maybe half again the size he was before, with spines protruding from his now green skin, and having sprouted a tail.]]

* In ''TheVampireDiaries'' vampires all become stronger as they age, although the difference can be overcome through numbers, surprise, anti-vampire weaponry, or other tactics. The oldest of them, the Originals, get a whole bunch of nifty powers and are next to impossible to kill. When they did manage to take one down, he would only remain dead as long as the magical knife that killed him wasn't removed, and his body remained indestructible.

* ''ForeverKnight'' worked this way. Lacroix was able to survive being impaled with a burning stake, and both Nick and Janette were also more resilient than many younger vampires. Also, Lacroix got his butt handed to him by his "vampire mother", who was a teenage girl when she was turned.
