* Jeffy from ''WebVideo/SuperMarioLogan'' is obviously a highly unintelligent kid, but it is never stated just how old he is. Even he isn't sure of his age. In the episode, "[[BirthdayEpisode Jeffy's Birthday!]]", the only evidence of Jeffy's age is a half-torn piece of paper in his pants pocket, which has the day he was born (August 21) written on it, but not the year.

* Tiny Kong from the ''Franchise/DonkeyKong'' franchise is Dixie's younger sister. Tiny hit a growth spurt and now seems to be a teenager however Dixie is still treated like a KidHero. She should be an adult but there hasn't been any sign of either her or her boyfriend Diddy aging. It's possibly Tiny is [[YoungerThanTheyLook in her early teens]] or ''VideoGame/{{Donkey Kong 64}}'' Tiny was OlderThanTheyLook.

* Muffet from ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' is described by her creator as "a lil' baby spider monster", but she looks to be way older than infancy, runs her own bake sale, and addresses the game's protagonist as "deary", a term of affection more often used towards younger people.

This description was evidently meant to be figurative in reference to her cute design and not literal, so Muffet's real age is anyone's guess.

** Cheerilee was a teen in TheEighties but was a filly when Rarity was. Despite Rarity's appearences she's not implied to be much older than the other Mane 6. Of course since this is an alt. universe it's possible their equivalent of the 80s was a few years ago instead of several decades.

** Popular fanon {{HandWave}}s include the possibility that ponies mature faster than humans, or that Equestria's lunar cycle doesn't directly correspond to our own; heaven knows [[PaintingTheFrostOnWindows the rest of their natural laws don't]].[[note]] How long a moon is supposed to be in a setting where the day/night cycle is manually controlled is a matter of some confusion, especially since the cycle has been interrupted several times in the course of the show.[[/note]]

* The player in ''VideoGame/Minecraft''. Steve/Alex is clearly an adult, or else they wouldn't be left alone or have a goatee (Pre-Beta Steve only, often thought of as a smile). In fact, it's also hard to estimate both's age range as well, given that everything in the game is pixelated. However, Alex looks fairly young. Steve may be too, but then again, their faces are pixelated, along with the rest of their bodies, meaning they are very hard to tell.

**What makes Soichiro's age more vague are his siblings, considering that his oldest brother, Bunmei, looks to be a good 11 or 10 years old, at the time he was shown as a baby [[http://kill-la-kill-au.tumblr.com/image/144558466643]], which in turn brings his parents' age into question.

* How old are the live-action cast in ''WesternAnimation/BluesClues'' supposed to be? Apparently Steve is an adult, maybe a [[DawsonCasting late teenager]], as he eventually leaves for colllege but what about his brother? Joe acts immature like a kid but lives alone and is played by an adult.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', all children share the same basic character model, regardless of age or maturity, which can fluctuate greatly between them. The only indication of specific ages given are for the ReallySevenHundredYearsOld vampire Babette (who was turned as a child over three centuries prior), and Aventus Aretino, who is 10 or 11 years old, going by an in-game letter.

* None of the ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' characters have confirmed ages. All that is given is Kimber is the youngest and the others are somewhere in their 20s. The series bible states Kimber is three years younger than Jerrica but that doesn't say much. We never see her show signs of being in high school so we can assume she already graduated and is either eighteen or nineteen. The IDW [[ComicBook/JemAndTheHolograms comic reboot ]] averts this trope by clealy showing ages in the character bios.
* Ember from ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' has been suggested to be in her twenties despite her general persona and looks seeming more like a rebellious high schooler.

* The age of the titular trio in ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls2016'' is this. In the [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls original show]] Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup were explicitly five years old biologically (but younger due too being {{Artificial Human}}s) however the reboot is more ambiguous. They are in an elementary school and their class teaches elementary level subjects however their kindergarten teacher Ms. Keane is still their teacher. Their classmates look older than six, many of the students outright look like middle schoolers, and in one episode the girls were teased by classmates for "looking like babies". They sound older and act older but still use the same designs they did when they were five. According to one episode the girls have had five Picture Day's, which pins them around ten or eleven years old.
