* Serval of ''Franchise/MortalKombat'''s characters reach the ages of [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld 10000 and higher]] via Kitana and Sindel, but you wouldn't know this by looking (Kitana looks to be in her early 20s while Sindel is at her late 40s). As of ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'', a Earthrealmer - Erron Black [[spoiler:fits this trope, due to a process of gaining the Edenians' long lifespans thanks to Shang Tsung.]] And if his ending is true, [[spoiler:Johnny Cage is about to pull off this trope as well.]]

* Serval Mag Launcher from ''VideoGame/EvolutionTheWorldOfSacredDevice'' is 16 years old but looks far younger. There is a bit of {{Flavor Text}} that can be found by inspecting a pipe in his yard that reveals that he hasn't grown taller since ''age 10''. On a similar note, pary member [[BrattyHalfPint Chain Gun]] is one year younger and reaches Mag's chest in terms of height.

* ''TheWitcher'': InAWorld where there are a ton of long-lived races (elves, for example, naturally live for thousands of years) and magic, it's only naturally that even humans often get unusually long-lived and/or [[Really700YearsOld young-looking for their age]].

* The character named "Jr." in the ''VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}}'' series appears to be twelve or thirteen years old, but is actually twenty-eight. His genetically engineered powers caused him to be physically stuck with a kid's body due to a major trauma when he was actually that age. He has a clone twin brother, (well, two, actually, but let's not get into that) who is younger by a small margin but has aged normally, and at one time chides him, "You're older than I am. Try to act like it sometimes".

* ''VideoGame/Splatoon2'' has Pearl, a short Inkling girl who looks and acts like a BrattyHalfPint, but is 21--three years the significantly older-looking Marina's senior.

* ''VideoGame/Splatoon2'' has Pearl, a short Inkling girl who looks and acts like a BrattyHalfPint, but is 21--three years the significantly older-looking Marina's senior. The InUniverse explanation for this is that Pearl was electrocuted when she was younger, which stunted her growth.

** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' the Zora are shown to be this due to aging slower than hylians and humans. The most obvious is a [=NPC=] named Finley. She uses a child's model and seems quite young in both look and sound, but is apparently the Zora equivalent of her mid to late teens. She bemoans the fact she's a late bloomer who has yet to hit her growth spurt. Purah, a Sheikah is over 220 years old, but has the appearance and mannerisms of a 6-year-old due to experimenting with a magic rune intended to reverse the aging process. There's also [[spoiler: Link and Zelda]] who are at least 117 years old, but thanks to the former being in a shrine to be healed and the latter being in a sealing duel with the BigBad, the two have not aged past 17 years old. An NPC lampshades it and wonders how they can still look so young despite 100 years passing by.

* In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', this is true of a few characters, even among the ordinary mortals. Possibly the most notable one is Janneke Crag-Jumper, who appears to be approximately the same age as her fully grown daughter.
