** This can lead to unique turns such as Kenny who is 800 years old but forever stuck in the body of the ten-year old boy he was when he first died.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Shadowhunters}}'' can have a variety of this with vampires, warlocks and other supernatural characters.
** Raphael looks in his 20s but a vampire pushing a century. He still watches over his "baby" sister, Rosa, who's now a senile 78-year old woman. When she finally dies, Raphael looks over an album of photos of them over the years, Rosa aging while Raphael stays the same.
** Warlock Magnus is over 1400 years old but maintains a very youthful appearance. It becomes a tearjerking moment when he shows lover Alec a box of mementos from dozens of men Magnus has loved over the centuries and this is the only way he can remember them all.
** Subverted with the millenia-old Seelie Queen who first shows up as a ten year old girl. However, she later takes on the form of a woman in her early 20s before going back to her child form.
-->'''Seelie Queen''': Different outfits for different occasions.

** While Saiyans aren't immortal, their aging process is similar to the Androids (much, much slower than humans). According to Vegeta, Saiyans stay young until they're 80, which would explain why Goku doesn't look any older than his adult son Gohan.

It's a bit of a subversion though, since Saiyans still have a short life expectancy; due to their status as a ProudWarriorRace, they usually tend to die in battle more often than not, and sure enough, all the main Saiyan characters have died [[DeathIsCheap at least once]].

* ''Manga/KnightsOfSidonia'': The Immortal Council that rules ''Sidonia'' from the shadows, as well as the ''Sidonia's'' Captain. Apparently the ''Sidonia'' invented a drug that completely halts aging if regularly taken, however if an "immortal" stops taking this drug, they start to age at a regular pace once again. The existence of this Council and their drug is kept secret from all but the highest-ranking ''Sidonia'' crew.

* One of the mysteries surrounding the ''Manga/DetectiveConan'' villain Vermouth is the fact that she has apparently not aged in at least two decades. Jodie Starling, who encountered Vermouth as a child and again as an adult, and Yukiko Kudo, a longtime friend before discovering Vermouth's true nature, both remark upon this fact. Vermouth ''is'' a MasterOfDisguise, but she seems to have used this to ''hide'' her lack of aging, such as by posing as her own daughter after FakingTheDead for her original public persona.

* In the ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'', anyone exposed who becomes the MacguffinGuardian of the Rainbows of Light and Darkness becomes this trope, starting with the Moochick and Spike's most ancient ancestor Heathspike. The Moochick eventually passed guardianship to the Paradise Ponies while Heathspike died in battle, sadly resulting in Darkness falling into Tirek's hands. The Paradise Ponies only died when they willingly left and gave up their role or [[spoiler:Discord destroyed the Element of Trust and deactivated the Rainbow of Light, or its shards, Light]], though they aged naturally after that. Even the Shards of the Rainbow of Light can offer a lengthened lifespan to those who can access their power, but it seems being an ageless immortal is reserved for an extended period of time do not age, or at least do so at a ''very'' decreased pace.the actual guardian.

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red dwarf Red dwarfs]][[note]]No, not [[Series/RedDwarf this]] one[[/note]], the smallest and less massive and luminous hydrogen-fusing stars, are the best example of this trope the Universe offers. Not only they fuse their hydrogen at a miserly rate, those stars are unlike more massive sones like our Sun entirely convective meaning that they have access to all of their nuclear fuel. This translates to them being able to shine for up to more than ''[[TimeAbyss 10 trillion years]]'' and this conserving during most of their lifetime the aspect they've now in their youth (or rather their infancy).
