*** And for those starting out with Dragon Ball Z back in the mid-90's, Bulma looks like she is in her high school years, while Krillin looks like he's in his middle school years.

** All the girls [[http://www.jcstaff.co.jp/sho-sai/skytv-shokai/skytv-index.htm appear to be about 12]], though in reality they're aged 15 to 17.
** Also, the twin mechanics Haruko and [[http://media.photobucket.com/image/sky%20girls%20ranko/crisuskeer/MyAnimeList/skyGirls25-04.jpg Ranko]] Mikagami are supposed to be older than [[http://animewriter.files.wordpress.com/2007/07/ryohei-otoha.jpg Ryohei]].

* ''AngelicLayer'''s Misaki Suzuhara is of ''1st year middle school'' age. Yet she gets mistaken for much younger, at one point ''elementary 3rd year'', much to her shock.

* The AffablyEvil priest Rezo from ''{{LightNovel/Slayers}}'' is the [[Really700YearsOld century-old]] great-grandfather of one of the protagonists, Zelgadis; aside from the two barely-noticable boney lines under his eyes, he looks to be more in his late forties or early fifties. [[RedHeadedHeroine Lina]] lampshades this when he appears in the first LightNovel, describing him as looking "both young and old at the same time."

** The same thing happened with [[FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids]]' [[{{Macekre}} version]] of ''TokyoMewMew'', presumably for similar reasons; an especially jarring example is [[TokenMiniMoe Bu-Ling]], who begins the series at eight years old, yet the dubbed version managed to make her ''fourteen''. Oddly, TokyoPop's manga translation moved the characters ''down'' a year to appeal more to a young audience.

* Even if almost all of them have a case of Really700YearsOld, the anthropomorphic countries in ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' rarely even look their "human age". England is supposed to be physically 23, but is often drawn not looking any older than 15. In-universe, this is the case for Japan; Italy thinks Japan is too young to drink, when he's actually ''way'' older than Italy.
