* A very minor age-difference with Koruri from ''Manga/SevenSeeds''. She's one of the shorter characters, [[{{Pettanko}} without much development]] and her curly hair makes her seem even more youthful. She is 17 years old, but looks about 13 years old. The other teams are surprised to learn that she's the same age as the other members of her team, especially her boyfriend, who is a year younger than she.

* Being [[spoiler: a time traveler stuck in a GroundhogDayLoop]], Homura of ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' has an uncertain age. Most fan estimates, based on WordOfGod [[spoiler: (around one hundred loops of forty-five days)]] suggest her to be around twenty-six years old, next to her middle-school peers. However, she looks the same age as the rest of the cast - in fact, she's actually a {{Pettanko}} and the second shortest girl. Explanations, from side-effects of her powers to actual immortality, abound in the fanbase.

** At the end of the series and in the ''Boruto'' series, Shizune still looks as young as before. Given that she's Tsunade's student, that must be the reason.

* Dragons in ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' are all {{Time Abyss}}es, but the only indications Iruru is any older than [[TokenMiniMoe Kanna]] are her GagBoobs. This is due to Iruru having poorer shapeshifting abilities than the other dragons, resulting in her unbalanced appearance. She's actually around the same age as Tohru.

** The same thing happened with [[Creator/FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids]]' [[{{Macekre}} version]] of ''Manga/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.
