** 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.

* In a rare event chain that requires supernatural events be turned on, a character can attain this in ''VideoGame/CrusaderKings''. They will never age and are highly resistant to diseases. Unfortunately, they're likely to slowly lose limbs over the years, and with the [[DecadentCourt lovely people they're surrounded by]], the risk of violent death remains quite high.

* The Archons in ''VideoGame/Tyranny'' are implied to be incapable of dying of natural causes. EvilOverlord Kyros is also stated to have been actively conquering Terratus for more than a hundred years, implying the same. Oddly enough, the Archons are independent wizards conquered by Kyros, implying that most fairly powerful magic users become TheAgeless.

* Subvered in ''Literature/{{Edgedancer}}''. Lift claims she asked [[JackassGenie the Nightwatcher]] to "stay the same while the world changes around her", expecting this trope. Her first period proves that whatever Nightwatcher did to her, it wasn't making her unaging.

** The Nerevarine of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' becomes this, as a consequence of [[spoiler: having Corprus but getting negative effects cured]]. If brought to sufficient heights of power, they can also gain enough regenerative power to leave this trope and [[FromASingleCell enter another]].

* 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.
