* Serval of MortalKombat's characters reach the ages of [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld 10000 and higher]] via [[BadassPrincess 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 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.]]

* ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'': Shadow the Hedgehog is 50, but that's just the time he's accumulated being preserved in a machine on Prison Island. Apparently, he shouldn't even be ''two''. Funny, considering that he curses up a storm in his game...

Added DiffLines:

** Trainers in the "Fairy Tale Girl" trainer class look like little girls wearing sweet lolita fashion. One of them though mentions that she's old enough to be your mother.

* ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive'' has Marie Rose, who's officially 18 but looks much younger because she has an ElegantGothicLolita aesthetic, GenkiGirl mannerisms, and a bustline that ''isn't'' [[BuxomIsBetter completely ridiculous]]. This has actually resulted in Tecmo-Koei toning down her {{Fanservice}} for the Western version of ''DOA5'' and is the primary reason ''DOA Xtreme 3'' [[NoExportForYou isn't getting released in America]].

* Tia from ''VideoGame/PotionMaker'' has pretty adult proportions despite being younger than Pio. Pio notes it as unusual and possibly a result of magical potion.

** Speaking of Mario, there's Lemmy Koopa. He looks like a cute little kid but he's actually the ''''second oldest.'''' It really does not help that he is very immature, and Iggy, who originally looked like him but with glasses, but was actually two times younger, became [[NewSuperMarioBros an extremely tall green-turnip-haired]] {{Mad Scientist}}!

* ''TheWitcher'':

to:

* ''TheWitcher'':''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]].



** Geralt looks like a fit man in his late twenties, though by the third game the ArtShift makes him to look about forty. By putting pieces of BackStory together, you can place his age at 80 at the youngest. And if the Witcher in the DistantFinale of ''Literature/SeasonOfStorms'' is indeed Geralt,[[note]]The man could also be Vesemir, but Vesemir dies in the third game. Of course, the books and the games are technically [[AlternateUniverse separate continuities]], but still…[[/note]] that would make him 200+.

Added DiffLines:

** Human wizards routinely extend their lifespan through magic, and given that most advanced medicine in their world is their province, they also have much better health than the general population. Yennefer, for example, Is said to be 92 at the start of a saga,[[note]]Though being an elf quadroon, she'd probably have a longer than normal lifespan anyway[[/note]] and the oldest living human sorcerer (at about 1000) got a short "screentime" during the [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized Thanedd coup]], though he was already an extremely old man who was described as ready to keel over at the slightest provocation, and, naturally, didn't survive the event.

* Ezio Auditore is 48 by the end of ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood''. Although Cesare calls attention to it, calling him an "old fucker", he doesn't really look
the part. ''[[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedRevelations Revelations]]'' fixed this by giving the now 52-year old Assassin plenty of grey in his hair and noticeable wrinkles. [[OneManArmy Not that it's]] [[MadeOfIron slowed him down at all]].

to:

** [[TheEmperor Emhyr]], if we add all the clues from the books, should be somewhere in his sixties, but is depicted as a forty-something man in the third game.

** Dandelion the Bard. As Triss so eloquently puts it: "You are 40, sound like you're 30, look like you're 20, and act like you're 10!"

10!" And she's actually quoting Dijkstra, the Dandelion's one-time SpyMaster boss, from a somewhat earlier time:
--> You are almost forty, look like almost thirty, think you're twenty, and behave like you're not even ten.

* Both [[spoiler:Kori and Sox]] in ''TimeHollow'' are frozen in time, so they don't age. The former is about forty, while the latter is implied to be Really700YearsOld.

** Katie from ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonSaveTheHomland'' is one of the few who is mentioned in-series. Her BerserkButton is being mistaken for a kid. Though, she doesn't look too young. It's likely her lolita fashion way of dressing and height that make her look young.

** Luna from ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonTreeOfTranquility'' is about half as tall as Kevin and has to jump in order to kiss him on their wedding day. Her height combined with her lolita style of dressing makes her look quite young, twelve or under. In the AlternateUniverse that is ''VideoGame/HarvesttMoonAnimal Parade'' she's considerably taller though, but still looks somewhat young due to her fashion
** The Oracle from ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonTheTaleOfTwoTowns'' looks prepubescent but is Really700YearsOld
