* Vaguely implied in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild''. [[spoiler:When Zelda is finally freed from Calamity Ganon's grasp after a century of keeping him a SealedEvilInADuel, she looks no older than she did when she was first SwallowedWhole by him, and unlike Link wasn't in a HealingVat that otherwise would have kept her in physical stasis. The implication is that the same RoyaltySuperPower that allowed her to keep Ganon from destroying Hyrule also kept her from aging.]]

* In ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'', one of the benefits of Ripple training is that it drastically reduces aging. Joseph Joestar is still relatively spry in Part III despite being a grandfather in his seventies thanks to the Ripple. In Part IV, time catches up with him and he finally starts looking and acting his age.

** Avatars can live longer still. Avatar Kyoshi, most badass Avatar ever, lived for 230 years, the longest of any known Avatar, and presumably retained all her faculties until the very end. (This was not merely a HandWave on the writer's part so that they didn't have to invent four more Avatars to go between Roku and Kyoshi. [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial We swear]].) Aang, unfortunately, is only active for 66 years, thanks to spending an extra century as a HumanPopsicle.

* Hades/Precht, Warrod and August from ''Manga/FairyTail'' are two of the most powerful wizards as well as the most ancient human characters in the series, and the first two are old enough to be the father of Makarov, an 88 year old man.

* Adventureres in ''LightNovel/IsItWrongToTryToPickUpGirlsInADungeon''. While not wizards per se, though even those who aren't primary spellcasters tend to pick up a spell or two, have potentially longer lifespans that normal members of their race. It is explained that the same divine blessings that allow them to become stronger have a side effect of slowing the aging process and the effect gets more pronounced at higher levels. However being an adventurer is a high risk occupation, there's no guarantee that any given adventurer will actually get to enjoy their potentially extended lifespan

*** Warranted a lot of powerful spells, including the ones required to make magical items above +2 quality, literally drained your lifespan by a percentage. Resurrection (5% from caster and prevents spell-casting for a week), Restoration (2% from caster AND target), Wish (8% from caster, 3% for limited wish), Permanency (8% from Caster) Haste (1% to targets), Finger of Death (A chance of 4% from caster on a failed save vs death) as a few examples.

** Throughout the series, the [[OurElvesAreBetter Altmer (High Elves)]] are stated to be the [[WitchSpecies most magically inclined]] race in Tamriel and are also the most naturally LongLived out of the already long-lived Mer races. Living for several centuries is fairly average for them, while extreme examples have [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld lived for thousands of years]].

* Wild Wizards at least in ''David Weber'''s [[TheWarGods War God]] series. Wencit of Rum wasn't precisely young during the Fall of Kontovarr and is showing no signs of slowing down over a millenia later. The same 'magic field' that gives Wencit his power is also responsible for the Hradani living twice as long as humans and the immortality of the elves is explicitly linked to magic since they used to be a human strain of spellcasters with a specific natural gift rather than a learned ability.
