* 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 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).

* During the fifty year TimeSkip between seasons 4 and ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'', Jack realizes he stopped aging when Aku sent him to the future. Aku himself is frustrated at this since [[VictoryByEndurance waiting for him to die of old age]] is no longer an option. Jack himself is even more frustrated because he doesn't want to [[WhoWantsToLiveForever spend eternity]] stuck in a BadFuture.

* Most incarnations of the ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'', [[MadeOfIron and good luck with the fatal damage]]. Technically Transformers DO age, just extremely slowly - millions of years is considered a common age. We've never actually had someone ''confirmed'' as dying of old age, but it's suggested by the characters of ancient backstories ''mostly'' being no longer around (In G1, Alpha Trion's the only character ''known'' to have been in the Quintesson wars, and in ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars,'' too much of G1 is forgotten/sketchy for most of its players to still be around, though Ravage still is.)

* The ''Runepunk'' podcast series from Podcast/{{RPGMP3}} features a character called Kieron Hammerfall, an [[OurElvesAreBetter Andari]] [[InstantRunes Rune]][[SquishyWizard caster]]. Kieron is imbued with [[LinearWarriorsQuadraticWizards momentous arcane power]], as well as the [[GlassCannon durability of a dry twig]]. He's a member of the Andari race, which means he's [[TheAgeless blessed with immortality]] (barring any unfortunate accidents - which, considering his [[OneHitPointWonder virtually non-existent toughness]], could involve [[ScratchDamage being knocked over by a stiff breeze or something]]). Furthermore, [[WalkingTechbane Andari and technology don't mix]].

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' has two variants on this trope: Monks and Druids gain the Timeless Body ability, which causes them to no longer age physically (or at least do not get any penalties for aging) until they drop dead when they reach their species' maximum age (thus invoking the OldMaster trope). Two races, [[{{Transhuman}} Elan]] and the [[NatureSpirit Killoren]], have no maximum age and will visibly age to a certain point (venerable age for Elan, old age for Killoren) but never die of old age. Combining either race with either class leads to this trope. There's also an epic feat that adds half your maximum possible age to each age category (a stadium where your character gets visibly older), which has the same effect on them.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': Equestria's [[WingedUnicorn Alicorn]] [[PhysicalGod God]]-[[PrincessesRule Princesses]] appear to be this, if not [[CompleteImmortality completely immortal]], being [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld well over a thousand years old]]. According to Luna in ''Literature/TheJournalOfTheTwoSisters'', the sisters are just ''very'' LongLived. Starswirl the Bearded on the other hand was this thanks to an age reversal spell he created and used on himself.

* In ''Literature/MaureenBirnbaumBarbarianSwordsperson'', for reasons that are never explained, Maureen does not age at all while off on her adventures. Time passes at the same rate for her as it does back on Earth, but her old friend Bitsy Spiegleman gets older, gets married, and has kids as the series progresses, while Maureen remains a teenager. This is a source of puzzlement to everyone, but Maureen is too busy barbarianing to fret about such details.
