* Aeduen from ''Literature/TheWitchlands'' is very close to Iseult's age, but she initially assumes he's much older because of the serious, reserved way he speaks and carries himself.

** ''GT'' also gives us Bra[=/=]Bulla, who's only 11 but [[AgeInappropriateDress wears revealing clothing]] and looks a few years older -- to the point where grown men hit on her. In front of her [[PapaWolf father]]. Who is [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Vegeta]]. It goes about as well as you'd expect.

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}''
** Team Rocket (or more specifically Jessie and James) are supposed to be ''fifteen'', despite looking and sounding significantly older than everyone else. This is implied to be them lying about their age though, as other material suggests Jessie is twenty-five.
** Misty is also quite busty for a 10-year-old.

* In ''Anime/ExcelSaga'', a paedophile takes a nine-year-old to a love hotel, only to learn that she's, er, "prodigious"[[labelnote:*]] meaning she was able to completely hide away her triple-g cup breasts[[/labelnote]]. The episode in question was making as many jokes that couldn't be aired on TV as possible (it didn't, which was what the creators wanted), but everything was still played for laughs (all [[BlackHumor black laughs]]), which meant the paedophile ''left'' the under aged girl broken-hearted when he saw what she looked like, before anything awful happened. [[WidgetSeries Yep.]]

* In the SSI VideoGame/GoldBox game ''Curse of the Azure Bonds'', the character screen of the optional NPC Alias lists her age as "2" despite her being an experienced adult fighter. As this is not explained in-game, some players might assume it to have been a developer oversight but anyone familiar with her ForgottenRealms backstory knows that she was actually created artificially and that the listed age is accurate.

By the late 1980s, his hair went white overnight and he lost his young Alex looks. And he started getting a considerable number of "elderly man" roles despite the fact that he only just turned 70 in 2012. Mr. Mcdowell has confessed that he has no one to fault but himself.

* Yet another WWE alumni, Wrestling/ArnAnderson made his professional debut when he was 24, but due to the fact that he began losing his hair at a young age and wore a combover, looked like he was in his forties. He's changed very little since then as well, so his age caught up to his appearance.

* Creator/JenniferLewis was frequently cast as forty to fiftysomething mothers back in the 90's when she was only in her 30's. She was also cast as the Grandmother of Raven-Symone and Kyle Massey on ''Series/ThatsSoRaven'' when she was in her late 40's (and, therefore, would be more likely to be their mother than their grandmother in real life).

** Otabek Altin is also 18, but what makes him look older than that is his stern-looking and angular face.

** The second ''VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigations'' has Bonnie Young, who looks ''very'' old, and has her granddaughter with her at all times as her voice is too weak to be heard, so her granddaughter speaks for her. She's 60 years old. This becomes even more bizarre when Blaise Debeste, who is eight years older than her, is in much better health and looks to be no older than 50.

** Elder Arthur Maxson, head of the Brotherhood of Steel, looks like a grizzled, scarred soldier with years of experience. But, in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'', he appeared as a ten-year old squire; with a decade passing between the two games, this makes him all of ''twenty''. Many of his brothers note he is their youngest leader in history, but what in the Wasteland has he gone through that makes him look that old?

* There's a reason the ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' gang is called "Meddling ''kids''" so often. In the original franchise Velma was fifteen, Daphne sixteen, and the boys seventeen. Many viewers are surprised, thinking they're college aged. Many, if not most, future installments age them up.
