* Downplayed in ''Videogame/TheLastOfUs'': When they first met, Joel thinks Ellie is 12 (and she looks it), but she's actually fourteen.

* The central character of ''VideoGame/NightInTheWoods'', Mae, is twenty years old, but could easily be mistaken for a teenager, partially because of the game's storybook-esque art style, and partially because Mae's the shortest of her friends, is a {{Womanchild}}, and doesn't have a job or driver's license.

* ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'':
** ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'' has a rare case where both this trope and [[YoungerThanTheyLook its opposite]] are valid with Ramon Salazar. While most players assumed he was a child no older than 11 playing dress up, Leon looks at his wrinkled skin and gray hair and thinks he's a withered old man. Both are wrong -- Salazar claims to be 20 years old.
** ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil6'' has a straight example in Sherry Birkin. She's 26 years old, but looks, sounds and frequently acts slightly younger than her escortee Jake Muller, who's 21. {{Justified|Trope}} in that it's an effect of the [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil2 G-virus]] she has in her adapting to her body and increasing regeneration to HealingFactor levels.

** Manaketes (dragons who have taken human form) like [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons Tiki]] from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia'', [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons Nowi]] from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons Myrrh]] from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'' and [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons Fae]] from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe'' are all of the Really700YearsOld variety. Simply having dragon blood seems to slow down aging as half human/half manakete children can live far longer than normal humans.

** As of ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance'', Ventus [[spoiler:has been in a coma for eleven years. While his body hasn't actually aged in that time, he's now technically twenty-six years old.]]
*** [[spoiler: Twenty-six NOTHING!]] ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsX'' reveals that [[spoiler: Ventus is from the pre-Keyblade War, an era that had already faded into legend by the time Xehanort and Eraqus had become Keyblade apprentices!]]

* Nina from ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon1'' doesn't even look like an adult in her official art, yet she's of marriage age. The fact she is a bubbly, cute ThirdPersonPerson does not help. ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonMagicalMelody'' made her look slightly more like a young adult.

Added DiffLines:

*** Subverted with Dessie who really is young. Of course, she's a goddess, so maybe not.

* Tonnio and Liina in ''PhantasyStarUniverse'' both look like 12-year old kids but are actually on their late twenties, which came as a surprise in Portable 2 when [[spoiler:they are a married couple.]]
