* in ''ErrantStory'': Meji, age seventeen, looks twelve (she's a half-elf). All kinds of angsting and insecurities ensue. Fellow half-elf, Ian, is 45 and looks like he hasn't hit 20 yet.

* Also a RealLife one, since it's from a JournalComic, but Shazzbaa from ''TodayNothingHappened'' looks a lot younger than her current age at least since she was eighteen.

* Sera from ''SerenityRose'' is extremely short, and the art for the comic is fairly age-ambiguous, to the point that the artist has on at least one occasion included a disclaimer stating she's in College.

* The heroines of ''Webcomic/JetDreamAndHerTGirlCounterspies'' are chronologically in their 30s or 40s, but appear to be young women in their early 20s. When the former men of the Thunderbird Squadron were [[GenderBender turned into girls]] by [[AppliedPhlebotinum Virus-X]], the effect also rejuvenated them.

* Da-Jeong from ''Webcomic/TheFriendlyWinter'' is a nineteen year old who looks like a seven to eight year old. She has a thyroid condition that stunted her growth. She could have gone on estrogen to have her grow but by the time they figured out it was too late. Her mother abandoned her ten years ago because she couldn't handle her daughters disability. Da-Jeong hates that she's forced to masquerade as a little kid (including wearing childish clothing and having a kiddie bike) and no one believes her when she says she's an adult.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/{{Nebula}}'': All of the characters' ages veer into TimeAbyss, but Earth and Sun have OlderThanTheyLook apply within what's normal for their species. Earth is stated to be stated to Venus' ''older'' sister, despite not looking any older than her and having more than a bit of ImmortalImmaturity. Sun, meanwhile, is mentioned by the other characters to be have existed since before ''anyone'' else did, even though he looks about the same age as them.

* Greg, boyfriend of Kili in ''Webcomic/TheDragonDoctors'', is really 60 but looks about 20-something. However, he's not alone, as apparently quite a lot of people are able to purchase rejuvenation in the setting.

Added DiffLines:

* Sung Sumin from ''What Does The Fox Say?'' is a thirty four year old that looks significantly younger. The protagonist doesn't even believe her age at first. Sumin's age is a ''huge'' BerserkButton for her, as in the past she was disrespected for looking young, so the protagonist [[InnocentlyInsensitive innocently questioning it]] makes their relationship start on rocky terms.

* Mana Ryushin, from ''[[Wecomic/DHSComix Random Encounter]]'' and ''Way Back Home'', initially appears as a young child, despite having lived hundreds of years in the afterlife. Eventually she gives herself an adult body, which still doesn't look a day over thirty.

* As of the Credomar arc, Kaff Tagon of ''SchlockMercenary'' is 49. This is brought down in particular by Elf, who [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2008-10-18 in this strip]] claims he's older than her dad, and yet she had a crush on him a few arcs earlier.

* ''Webcomic/TowerOfGod'' is an undisputed king of this Trope. Manipulating the FunctionalMagic of their world known as Shinsoo, allows for a person who become skilled enough with it to become immortal. Since the entire cast and ''everyone'' in the the story setting can use Shinsoo, almost all of them are immortal and either are already or soon will be older than they look. A prime example is Anak [[spoiler: Zahard]] who has a body of what seems like a child and is ''[[Really700YearsOld 300]]'' years old. They ''need'' to be immortal as well, since their ultimate goal is to reach the top of the Tower that makes up their world and just reaching floor 134[[note]] The highest anyone has ever gotten[[/note]] takes ''500'' years.
