* Series/LegendsOfTomorrow gives us 3 cases: Carter Hall, Kendra Saunders and Vandal Savage. Kendra and Carter continuously go through a cycle of death and reincarnation and have reincarnated over 206 times for over 4 millenniums, making them respectively 4000 years old each. Meanwhile, BigBad Vandal Savage is a straight forward case by stealing the life force of Kendra and Carter by killing them, making him around the same age, maybe older.

* ''{{Smallville}}'': In one episode, Lana Lang is haunted by the ghost of a childhood friend, Emily. Emily was stated to be 10 years old, but she looks and acts much younger, with handwriting that looks more like a 2nd grader and interests and speech patterns more typical of a 4 or 5 year old. In flashbacks, Lana appears to have been an improbably immature 10 year old as well, since she didn't act very differently from Emily.

** The show is about a sitcom focusing on a high-school hockey team. The actors playing the kids are in their late 20's, and one is said to be in his 30's. This is true both in-universe and real life.

* In ''{{Series/Episodes}}'', actress Morning Randolph looks like she's about 30 at the most, and is playing a character described as "mid-twenties", but thanks to extensive plastic surgery, looks much younger than she really is. She did a pilot in the 80's with William Shatner, wherein she played his ''wife'', implying she's probably well over 50. When Sean sees her age written down (we don't get to see it) he reacts with shock and says to (late-40's) Beverly, "She's even older than you!"

* ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' / ''Series/{{The Flash|2014}}'': Barry Allen is in his early 20's, but looks like a teenager. [[ComicBook/GreenArrow Ollie]] repeatedly ribs him over this, such as jokingly telling Felicity that he's instructed the bartenders at his party to ask Barry for an I.D. before serving him drinks.

This is due to Barry being a rare example of ''not'' using DawsonCasting. Grant Gustin is in his mid-twenties, and so is Barry.

* ''Series/OnceUponATime'': Thanks to a curse, all of the fairy tale characters were frozen in time for 28 years, meaning for example that Snow White and her daughter Emma look like they're the same age. Since when [[spoiler: the curse is broken]] they seem to [[spoiler: have all of their memories of those 28 years]], they're technically mentally thirty years older than they look.
