* Due to the setting of ''VideoGame/{{Caligula}}'', while all the characters appear to be high school age, quite a few are older. Some of them are more drastic than others; for instance, [[spoiler:Mifue]] is 17 instead of 16, but [[spoiler:Shogo and Kotono]] are adults (30 and 23 years old, respectively), and [[spoiler:Kensuke]] is 19 years old.

* In VideoGame/{{Piratez}}, Hellerium-depraved Ubers are small and cute, but in fact they are usually older and wiser than your average, big Ubers.

* A few of the characters in ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' are stated to be a certain age, but their backstories reveal them to be much older.
** Tracer was 26 when serving in the original Overwatch 30 years ago, but hasn't aged since then due to a teleportation experiment GoneHorriblyWrong that caused her to exist outside the flow of time.
** Mei is actually 61 but appears 30 years younger due to being a HumanPopsicle.
** [[TheMedic Mercy]] claims to be 37 (and some would argue looks even younger than that), but served in the original Overwatch alongside Soldier 76 and Reaper which would make her about 70. No explanation is offered for this, but it can be inferred that she uses her medical technology to stay relatively young.

* There's also [[Videogame/DragonAgeII Hawke]] who doesn't age at all through 7 years of the game! Especially true for their default appearances where they continue to look to be in their early to mid 20s the whole time, it's even carried into Inquisition where they would have been ten years older than when they started the game.

* 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.

* In ''VideoGame/SecretOfEvermore'' this trope extends to all four of the human characters who have been trapped for thirty years in the virtual world of Evermore, since nobody physically ages there, but it particularly comes into play with Elizabeth, who was 10 years old at the time of the experiment. When the present-day hero's accidentally transported into Evermore and meets her, she's become the ruler and protector of a prehistoric village, and has a mature, TheObiWan personality that's completely at odds with her appearance.

** In ''VideoGame/DirgeOfCerberus'', Vincent meets Shelke, a new character (and possibly a new love interest). She's a 19-year old whose body stopped growing at [[TokenMiniMoe age nine]].

* ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX''; after a 25-year TimeSkip, Sonya Blade still looks rather young and attractive, despite being in her forties and having a grown daughter. (She has, however, lost the {{Stripperific}} costumes.

* 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...

** 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.
