* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': the oldest Earthbender seen (Bumi) is past 100, is built like the Hulk, and has mastered his art to the point where he only needs his ''chin''. Meanwhile, Toph Beifong is blind, invents metalbending at age 12, fights Bumi to a standstill (the match was interrupted because they were causing quakes that gave away their position)... and [[WesternAnimation/LegendOfKorra 70 years later]], no longer needs to move her arms to bend, curbstomps the Avatar, and is able to pull a NonchalantDodge against ''airbending''.

* 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.

* The ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode ''Father's Day'' says that, temporally speaking, older is stronger. The episode's ClockRoaches are unable to devour a centuries old church, and when they get in thanks to a paradox they immediately are drawn to The Doctor due to being even older than the church.

** 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.
