** The Nerevarine of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' becomes this, along with having IdealIllnessImmunity, as a consequence of [[spoiler: having Corprus but getting negative effects cured]]. Technically, anyone with the Corprus disease has these, but unless the negative effects are cured, it ''also'' leaves you completely insane with a nasty case of BodyHorror.
** Dragons in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' are this, being quasi-angelic entities who can never truly die unless their soul is absorbed by another dragon or [[TheChosenOne a Dragonborn]]. [[spoiler:Paarthurnax]] in particular has been waiting on top of the Throat of the World for Alduin's return since the Dragon War many thousands of years ago. The most powerful weapon that can be used against them is a Thu'um [[spoiler:that forces dragons to briefly know what it's like to be Mortal, Finite, and Temporary. In gameplay it robs them of the powers unique to dragonkind: flight and the Thu'um.]]

** Though there are many regional variations on their appearances and powers, vampires typically have this trait throughout the series. However, there's a catch: if a vampire goes too long without feeding, they'll go irrevocably insane.

** By implication, the main character Nagate Tanikaze as well due to his enhanced healing ability. Part of the reason he is constantly sent on life-threatening missions is that the immortal council objects to having an immortal who is ''not'' part of the council running around, not least of which because it could threaten the secret of their existence.

* Creator/DamonKnight had a 1957 novella variously called ''Dio'' or ''[[https://books.google.com/books?id=nZl0CwAAQBAJ&lpg=PT8&dq=Damon%20Knight%20The%20Dying%20Man&pg=PT9#v=snippet&q=noon&f=false The Dying Man]]''. In the far-off [[TheFuture Future]] humans have genetically engineered themselves into immortality and separated into the classes of "players" (consumers), "students" who remember and preserve the past, and "planners" who create environments and technology to make Earth a PleasurePlanet paradise. [[WeWillAllFlyInTheFuture Everyone can levitate]], [[[[WeWillHavePerfectHealthInTheFuture everyone looks like a Greek god]] and [[HealingFactor injuries regenerate]]. One of the most brilliant planners suddenly loses these abilities, subsequently discovering he's going to age normally and die. His creative work reflects his experiences, and his player girlfriend has to get serious in order to understand what's happening.

** The Sload, a race of "slugmen" native to the "Coral Kingdoms" of Thras to the west of Tamriel, have no known age limit or size to adult Sload. One story tells of an "Elder Distended One," who seems to serve as some sort of leader to the Sload. It is said to be "impressively corpulent" and regurgitates some unknown substance that other Sload then "eagerly consume."



** Being undead, vampires will live indefinitely. Babette of ''Skyrim'' was turned at the age of ten, but has lived for three hundred years. However, there's a catch: if a vampire goes too long without feeding, they'll go irrevocably insane.

* ''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.
