* ''Film/TheDisasterArtist'': Lampshaded in regards to Tommy Wisseau, who claims to be about the same age as Greg, who is 19, yet is clearly pushing 40. He refuses repeated efforts to pry his age from him, as well as a variety of other personal details he keeps mysterious. This is based on the real behavior of Wisseau, whose true age is still not publicly known.

* Apparently done deliberately in casting Malcolm [=McDowell=] as Alex in ''Film/AClockworkOrange''. The character is revealed to be [[spoiler:fifteen]] in the book, while [=McDowell=] appears to be somewhere in the rage of late teens to early twenties.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/TheParselmouthOfGryffindor'', Professor Max has been the Ghoul Studies professor "since the 18th or 19th century", and calls 120-year-old Dumbledore "young"… but at the same time does not look that old, not having a single gray hair for one thing. Methuselah Syndrome is probably at play.

* Jack Skellington from ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'' is adult-sized. In personality and voice, he comes across as being in his late twenties or early thirties, but as he is undead, it is impossible to gauge his exact age from his looks. He is probably in his thirties, but it is still possible for him to be younger.

* Jack Skellington from ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'' is adult-sized. In adult-sized and, in personality and voice, he comes across as being in his late twenties or early thirties, thirties. But then again, [[DemBones he's an undead skeleton]], and supposedly the [[PhysicalGod embodiment of Halloween]]… so for all we know, he may be centuries old and just ''seems'' youthful.
* Fidget from ''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective'' is also a tough one. Olivia refers to him as "old",
but as he is undead, it is impossible to gauge his exact age from his looks. He is probably small, somewhat cute and has a high-pitched voice; in his thirties, but it is still possible for him one of the spin-off comics, post-Heel–Face Turn, he was implied to be younger.a teenager just a handful of years older than Olivia, if you can believe that.

* ''VideoGame/PuyoPuyo'': Some characters do not have canon ages, but Witch has been given two different canon ages (13 in Sun and 15 in ~n respectively) and yet her appearance in ''Madou Monogatari ARS'' would indicate she is much older, closer to 180. Her grandmother Wish's official age is 65, but seeing [[YoungerThanTheyLook as she is much younger than she looks]] and anti-aging magic is present in the series it's not implausible to think she could also be much older.

** Lemres and Ms. Accord from the ''Fever'' series both canonically use anti-aging magic to remain young and dialogue referring to their ages is deliberately vague as to what that age actually is, making it hard to ascertain their true ages. Lemres is described as a senior in school but it is also implied he and Accord are old friends, while Accord is a middle school teacher.

* The fairies in ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' are immortal and have been alive for millions of years, however it's unsure how old most of the characters are in "human" terms, as well as physically and mentally. Also, Tootie's age seems to be a bit debated. In one tie-in book from 2004, she's stated to be eight (making her two years younger than Timmy). However in some material, she's stated to be ten.

* The entire cast of ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}''. One episode stated that teenagers and adults weren't even allowed in [[CrapsaccharineWorld Smileyland]], yet Kaeloo is a frog and not a tadpole, Pretty behaves like a [[BrattyTeenageDaughter teenager]], and Mr. Cat behaves like an adult (and his voice sounds like one too). Their ages seem to change between episodes, too. In an early episode, Kaeloo mentions how difficult going through puberty was for her, yet in a later episode she is stated to be pre-pubescent.

* Warner Brothers didn't want the writers to give Bruce Wayne an established age when he and Terry were celebrating his birth in the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' episode "Out of the Past". They said in the commentary that he would have been around mid to late eighties.

** Off the Hook from ''VideoGame/Splatoon2'' is even stranger: Marina is clearly anywhere from her late teens to her early twenties, like Callie and Marie, but Pearl, although implicitly 14 or above due to already having assumed a humanoid form, [[TinyTyrannicalGirl looks and acts]] a ''lot'' younger. Pearl is shorter than most inklings and is also [[NonstandardCharacterDesign the only in-game inkling]] to have a single pointed fang, which is something inklings are shown to have only prior to puberty. This has led some fans to speculate that Pearl is younger than 14 and that she is an early bloomer.

* ''VideoGame/{{Cuphead}}'': Both Cuphead and Mugman look rather young and live with their mentor, the Elder Kettle. And while the plot is kicked off by gambling, it's hard to tell if they're actually legal gambling age, or not, because it's unlikely that a casino run by the Devil would even care about that.
