* ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'': Baron Zemo tells Baron Strucker, current leader of [=HYDRA=], that he "was running [=HYDRA=] while you were still a child." It should be noted that BOTH characters served in World War II, so they're both pretty old by this point..

* A variant occurs in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers''. Hayate, speaking with Auris Gaiz, suggests that Auris' superior, Lieutenant General Regius Gaiz, is somehow involved with the Jail Scaglietti incident. Auris then asks Hayate how long she has been with the Bureau, and the 19-year-old Hayate says she has been with them for 10 years. Auris then says that Regius has been in the Bureau for 40 years, and when Hayate was committing crimes to save her life during the Book of Darkness Incident[[note]]Hayate was actually TakingTheHeat for the Wolkenritter[[/note]], Regius was upholding the law and defending the people, implying Hayate has no right to question him.

** Later done in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' with Javik, resident LastOfHisKind former [[{{Precursors}} Precursor]] [[HumanPopsicle Popsicle]], who is fond of mentioning what the dominant species of the current cycle were like in his time: humans lived in caves, hanar were like minnows in the ocean, yahg were small and salarians ate flies and licked their own eyes. He also jokes that Asari used to be unable to count beyond ten without their toes but then again this is [[{{Troll}} Javik]] we're talking about...

* This trope was poined out when tennis player Kimiko Date-Krumm returned from retirement at the age of 37. She started playing in 1989, before a good portion of her opponents were born and when another portion of them were small children (for reference, Serena Williams was born in 1981 and went pro in 1995, a year before Date-Krum first retired).
