** Speaking of Quagmire, Quagmire's transsexual father from the episode "Quagmire's Dad" barely looks any older than her son. Quite impressive, given that she would have to be in her seventies or eighties.

* Magneto in ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'' is at least as old as his movie counterpart, but looks only middle-aged the first time we see him without his helmet. In a later episode it turns out he uses his knowledge of genetics to maintain vitality and the appearance of youth, and when this fails him he reverts to his true age. ''Then'' he uses the Rebirth formula (which granted CaptainAmerica his powers) to de-age himself again, and looks like a young white haired man for the remainder of the show (on the rare occasions he's seen without his face-concealing helmet).
** Thanks to Wolverine's self-regeneration power, his true age will never be revealed but it's shown he was at least old enough to have served the military along with [[CaptainAmerica Cap]], which he did in this cartoon. Magneto was a kid back then.

* Played with between [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy]]. Many might assume Fluttershy to be the youngest of the Mane Six given her shy demeanor and childlike innocence (though Pinkie is also very childish), and Pinkie even jokingly tells Fluttershy in season one to think of her as "auntie"... but Fluttershy replies, a bit petulantly, that she's actually ''a year older'' than Pinkie Pie. In the flashback to their youth, Fluttershy looks taller and more lanky/gawky than the rest of the cast, indicating she may actually be the oldest.

* The Crystal Gems from ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' all appear to be in their twenties-thirties, but are all thousands of years old. [[HalfHumanHybrid Steven]] himself looks like a pre-adolescent, but celebrated his fourteenth birthday in one episode. He hasn't grown since age eight.

* In SymBionicTitan, Stevens, one of General Steel's soldiers, is able to [[AdultsDressedAsChildren sneak into Sherman High undercover]] because of this trope. He even says he's nicknamed "Babyface" because he looks young.
