** Comes up as a huge plot point in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}''. [[spoiler:Kellogg, the man who kidnapped your son]] is able to maintain his youth due to extensive cybernetic augmentation. Perceptive players may be able to notice [[spoiler:when trawling through his memories that he was a ten year old boy when the NCR was formed in 2189, meaning by the events of ''4'' he would have been a century old]]. The whole point is [[spoiler:to show just how the Sole Survivor's perception of the flow of time has been altered by being a HumanPopsicle - by the time they finally meet their son Shaun, their baby boy is a sixty-year-old man with terminal cancer.]]

* In the ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'', anyone exposed to the Rainbow of Light, or its shards, for an extended period of time do not age, or at least do so at a ''very'' decreased pace.

* In ''Literature/{{The Silent War}}'' The Redcloaks, the setting's empowered [[DemonSlaying demon slayers]], don't age nor suffer sickness or infections. Protagonist Katja is still only a teenager, but her mentor is her 130's (and apparently considered something of a teenager herself, by the true elders).

* Both Henry and [[spoiler: "Adam"]] from ''Series/{{Forever}}''...sort of. They do not age, however they '''can''' be killed, but only with [[spoiler: the weapon that caused their original "real" death]]. Henry's agelessness even becomes a subplot point when it's shown in flashback that his normally-aging second wife Abigail is uncomfortable being seen in public with Henry because she is afraid people will think he is either her son or a hired escort.

Also, [[spoiler:Adam tries to kill Henry with the same musket pistol that originally killed him, but Henry still comes back to life, possibly negating that hypothesis]]. One downside is that an immortal can become paralyzed and stay this way for years until someone kills him ([[spoiler:Henry does this to Adam in the final episode]].

* In ''Videogame/StarcraftIIWingsOfLiberty'', Stetmann's research on the Zerg sample reveals that the Zerg do not suffer cell degradation, meaning they can't die of old age. Stetmann refuses to even consider figuring out a way to grant this ability to humans, since the results would likely be BodyHorror. Instead, he figures out how to apply it to metals to make self healing buildings.

* The 27 True Runes of ''{{Suikoden}}'' grant this type of immortality, in addition to various abilities based on the aspect of existence that the True Rune governs (for instance, instant death attacks for the Rune of Life and Death AKA Soul Eater, or powerful destructive attacks that also hurt the user for the Rune of Punishment). * ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'':
