* 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.

* From the MarvelUniverse, ComicBook/NickFury. His brand of immortality stems from the Infinity Formula, for which he was the lab rat during World War 2 (without his consent, he was half-dead at the time, having just stepped on a landmine). The formula took about a quarter of a century to work on his biology, and now, although being nominally 90 years old (born 1917-1918) he is physically in his 40s, 50s tops and will not age another day. He can however be wounded, and presumably killed; nobody really achieved that, since he's ColonelBadass, with an EyepatchOfPower. Then, it's revealed that the formula's effects have faded. Then, again, he becomes even more this.

* The demons of ''ChronoCrusade'' appear to be this. There's some indication that they ''do'' age, but if so it's very slowly--they look the same age even over a span of 60 years.

* On ''Series/TwelveMonkeys'', the serum required to survive using the Project Splinter time machine seems to render the user as this, or at the very least alters how the aging process works. [[spoiler: Ramse]], for instance, spends decades TrappedInThePast without visibly aging, only for a later medical exam to show that parts of his biology have in fact aged at a normal pace.
** The Pallid Man and Olivia, the CoDragons of the Army of the Twelve Monkeys, also don't seem to age at all, leading to speculation that they're time travelers as well. [[spoiler: Season 2 reveals that it's actually because they're the biological and cloned (respectfully) children of one of the [[SuperSoldiers Messengers]], and share in her genetics, which were engineered specifically to work this way.]]

* In the 2010 ''Film/ClashOfTheTitans'', Io was cursed by the gods with agelessness. She mentions the burden of [[WhoWantsToLiveForever living on while her loved ones grew old and died]].

* The shieldwatch in ''Literature/AeonLegionLabyrinth'' can restore its user's body by moving the user back in time to when their body was in a youthful state. This makes anyone with a shieldwatch biologically immortal. Though the user can still be injured, they can just keep restoring themselves unless their nervous system is damaged enough or their shieldwatch runs out of power.

** King Piccolo first mentioned wanting to wish for eternal youth from Shen Long so he could rule the world forever, but for some reason when he got the balls he changed his wish to just having his youth ''restored'' (he was even stated to be holding back against Goku at first because fighting as full strength makes him age faster).

* In AndreNorton's ''Literature/DreadCompanion'', Kosgro observes that the people in this world do not die unless killed. Kilda contrasts this with very long-lived but still mortal aliens that she knows of.

* 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]], [[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.
