The grandma figure as most of us picture it. She does not try to hide her age or act hipper than she is. On the other hand, she is someone one can always rely on, even against one's parents, who will feed you and bring you presents on birthdays and who is just a Cool Old Lady in general. She enjoys baking, knitting, and has a fondness for cats. The stories she has to share from her youth will be real wisdom. Of course, this does not mean that you should underestimate her. Dismiss as washed-up and outdated and she will prove to you that a lifetime of experience can still beat the brashness of the young, and will not hesitate to give you a good whipping should you misbehave. Whether or not she can actually put up a fight varies - she may just as well need saving as unexpectedly bring out the big guns). (You do not need to be a main character's actual grandmother to fit this trope - any old person who fits this image can count.) Up for Grabs Examples: Catroons:
- Courage the Cowardly Dog's Muriel, a kindly old lady who takes in the titular abandoned pup...And has to be saved from the various horrors threatening her farm every episode.
- Granny In Paradise is a small video game about such a lady, featuring various "old people" phrases as PC chatter.
