You're as [[TimeAbyss old as the stars]] themselves and [[PersonOfMassDestruction might possess]] [[StarKilling the power to destroy them]]. While [[EldritchAbomination some entities like you might enjoy terrorizing others]] and [[GoMadFromTheRevelation warping their minds]] [[AlienGeometries with improbable non-Euclidean frames]], you prefer to be a bit more... subtle in your interactions with humans. Or you might have a good reason for not wanting your powers and potential to be immediately obvious.

And what better way is there to hide your identity and throw off suspicion than by taking on the form of a perky high school student?

Really 700 Years Old is an extreme version of OlderThanTheyLook, which covers ancient, perhaps immortal beings, and (usually) the total opposite of ReallyWasBornYesterday. Subjective age only--a form of suspended animation alone does not count. [[OurElvesAreBetter Elves]] tend to fall into this trope quite a bit in modern fantasy thanks in part because their BeautyIsNeverTarnished. If it's purely artistic rather than biological, it's ArtisticAge. For characters who look far younger than they are, but haven't yet lived longer than a human possibly could (say, an 80 year-old woman who looks 20), they're OlderThanTheyLook. See also ImmortalityBeginsAtTwenty, NotGrowingUpSucks. For the really, ''really'' extreme version, see TimeAbyss. Optimistic characters will say [[LivingForeverIsAwesome this trope is sweet.]]

For ways in which works show off that a character is Really700YearsOld, see ExpositionOfImmortality.

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* ''TowerOfGod'': All the [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking Rankers]] have ageless bodies due to their extensive use of [[AppliedPhlebotinum Shinsoo]]. [[CoolBigSis Yuri Zahard]] is 618 years old, but looks like she's barely of age.
* This trope takes its name from the tongue-in-cheek fan logic to explain the popularity of Sasami in ''TenchiMuyo'', who is otherwise joked to be the [[FanPreferredCouple best choice]] for the lead. Because she is [[HumanPopsicle technically]] "seven hundred years old", this supposedly made her fair game for fans. This of course ignores the fact the writers always give her the appearance and personality of a little girl and that most of that time was in hyper-sleep, but why worry about the ''details''...
** Pretty much Tenchi's whole family aside from him. His sister who looks to be in her mid to late 20's is 80. His father is 200 and looks like he is in his early 40's. His Grandmother ([[BerserkButton whom no one should ever call her by that name]]) looks maybe mid 30ish and is well over 700 years old (As does his Grandfather, but he keeps a disguise up to make him look 60-ish). And his great grandmother looks to be in her mid 30's too. The parents of Azusa, emperor of Jurai, Tenchi's great-great-grandparents, show up in GXP and look to be in their 40's. Tenchi's other great-great-grandparent, Seto, shows up in the OVA and GXP and looks to be about mid 30's despite being 5,000 years old.
** Also from ''TenchiMuyo'', supergenius MadScientist Washuu (who's actually either several thousand or several ''billion'' years old, depending on perspective) can change her appearance at will, and most often looks like a very precocious red-haired twelve-year-old girl.
*** Going back to Sasami; who fused with a being sister to Washu! (Ie; ''beginning of time''-years old), and Tokimi. Heck, Tenchi himself, considering he created the beings that created the universe (Sasami, Washu and Tokimi) which makes him pre-''beginning of time''-years old. Though that was [[{{Reincarnation}} in a different lifetime]], which he has no memory of.
** In the spinoff ''Tenchi Muyo: GXP'', Neju turns out to be more than two thousand years old. She plays to the lolicon fetish, teasing Seina (and indirectly all the other girls), such as calling Seina onii-chan. In her case, she's doing it deliberately, partly because she's feeling her years. She's also being naughty because she's had to be a [[ProperLady proper court lady]] for a couple of millennia, and now she's out of the harness and feeling frisky.
** IsekaiNoSeikishiMonogatari, another spinoff, is also rife with it. Aside from the references to [[TheHero Kenshi's]] [[SufficientlyAdvancedAliens relatives]], Wahanli, a cute teenage (apparently) WrenchWench is actually 97, for example.
* Koenma from ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' is ''exactly'' seven hundred years old, and appears to be a toddler. He can transform into a bishonen teen form for a few minutes at a time... ''but doesn't remove his pacifier when he does so''.
** Kurama also counts but there's a twist. His human form really is a teenager because Youko Kurama merged with a fetus when it was still in the womb. Thus he is a genuine teenager with the memories of someone really seven hundred years old.
** Koenma stays in teenage form continuously later in the series when it gets more serious. Eventually the pacifier is [[ChekhovsGun revealed to be a device to store energy]]. He keeps the the pacifier in his mouth even after using up its stored energy, presumably because that's how he recharges it.
* Lady Kayura from RoninWarriors is roughly a millennium old, appears to be in her mid teens, but is physically 12 years old.
* In ''MagicKnightRayearth'', the Guru Clef is appalled by the fact that the Knights are "mere children." When Umi accuses him of the same, he informs her haughtily that he is actually 745 years old, though he looks about 10.
* Evangeline from ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' was turned into a vampire when she was about ten and consequently has not aged at all in the hundreds of years since. She actually expresses a desire to become and be seen as a beautiful, mature woman rather than a child, and projects an illusion of such a form whenever she can. The illusion apparently has physical substance, but hey. [[AWizardDidIt It's magic]].
** It also seems that [[spoiler:Zect, the boy from the flashbacks]] was ''Nagi's master'', and was several centuries old himself.
** Fate Averruncus also claims to be several hundred years old, although in his case it's unclear whether he's referring specifically to [[spoiler:his current incarnation or his past lives as well.]]
** The StealthSequel series ''Manga/UQHolder'' introduces the titular organization, a group composed of immortals, most of whom fit this description. Eva, under the alias "Yukihime" is a member.
* ''Franchise/SailorMoon'':
* Like Sasami, the manga version of Chibi-Usa from ''Manga/SailorMoon'' is 901 years old during her introduction, with the body and face of a 10 year-old, although this is largely [[AdaptationDistillation thrown out]] in other media.
** For that matter, Sailor Pluto's association with relative TimeTravel makes it very difficult to pin her age down, although her [[NotDrawnToScale given age]] says she's in her twenties, which is what she appears to be.
** Any of the fey-like characters are possibly quite old, like Helios, Perle of [[Anime/SailorMoon [=SuperS=]]]: TheMovie, etc. None of them look to be over their early twenties, and most of them look like teenagers.
** The entire main cast also qualifies, or rather their future selves in Crystal Tokyo, all of whom are over 1000 years old. (While the Outer Senshi don't appear here other then Pluto in the anime and Manga, The ''Theatre/SeraMyu'' inculdes them, and has their future versions fight alongside the inners from the past during the Black Lady musicals)
* ''KiddyGrade'' has Eclair and Lumiere, who physically look 16 and 10 respectively [[spoiler: And it turns out they're both approximately 200-250 years old.]]
** This one is arguable, as the girls are [[spoiler:quantum reincarnated into new bodies periodically, so their current bodies, despite looking 16 and 10, are actually younger than that. In addition, Lumiere should have a 16 year old body, too, but she seals her Particle power, which also traps her body in a convenient young-looking form.]]
* In ''TrinityBlood'', [[spoiler:Seth, the Empress of the Methuselah]], is at least 900 years old, despite looking like a "cute young girl", by her own description.
** Being [[spoiler: her older brothers]], [[spoiler: Abel and Cain]] are a bit older than her. They only look in their twenties, though.
** And to lesser extent, the [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Methuselah]] from the same series, whose life expectancy averages around three centuries or so, but their appearance stops aging once their powers awaken. Suleyman, for example, looked to be in his late twenties but was Really Three Hundred Years Old.
** ''Ion''. He looks like a young boy and is probably older than half the other characters.
* Libra Dhoko from ''SaintSeiya'' is 247 years old. While he looks like an old man, that is just a form to hide his young body.
* The dolls in ''RozenMaiden'' are supposedly more than a century old. Being dolls, they nevertheless look and act much like children.
* Though not expected to be a romantic interest, Hellmaster Phibrizzo of ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'' sort of falls under this trope, as the demon lord was created at least a thousand years ago, yet continues to appear as a ten year old boy. Admittedly, though, demons such as himself can take any shape they please, but we never see him look like anything else even in flashbacks.
** He briefly takes on his true form in the last episode of ''Slayers Next'' [[spoiler: shortly before he is destroyed by the Lord of Nightmares]]. Also, Fibrizo was created before Shabranigdu was split, so it's at least five thousand years ago.
* Enma Ai from ''Anime/HellGirl'' looks like a little girl, albeit a creepy one. However she has been dispatching people to hell for many a century.
* C.C. from ''Anime/CodeGeass'' looks to be 16 or so, but is apparently old enough that she was on a FirstNameBasis with George Washington and Ben Franklin... and that's just the tip of the iceberg. To be precise she was born in medieval times.
* [[spoiler:Yukito]] of ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura''. He's Yue's [[spoiler:alternate form]], and Yue was created by the several-centuries-old magician Clow Reed in his original life.
** Kero is approximately (if not the exactly) the same age.
* Yuko Ichihara from ''Manga/XxxHOLiC'' and ''TsubasaReservoirChronicle'', both of which have close ties with the [[Manga/CardcaptorSakura aforementioned series]], never mentioned her exact age, but she was on a first name basis with Clow Reed, several hundred years ago. [[spoiler:Clow accidentally [[RealityWarper warped reality]] so that the universe would ignore her death. Once this is undone, 99% of people's memories are edited so that it is as if she died when she died as far as everyone but close friends and relations are concerned.]]
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'':
** Shinigami have a potential lifespan that spans thousands of years. It takes many decades just for them to reach adulthood resulting in characters who are biologically 13 years old being chronologically as old as human grandparents. One of the oldest shinigami, Yamamoto, had been around for over 2,000 years (how ''much'' over is an open question; he was already one of the major powers in Soul Society 2,000 years ago). The anime played with this in the filler Bount arc by making one shinigami [[spoiler: Ran Tao]] have an even more extended lifespan than usual thanks to the aid of science.
*** And while we're speaking of the Bounts, all of them were born in the same time period from the same lab accident, which was many centuries before the current storyline. Consequently, the only one of them who looks even remotely close to his age at the time the story starts is Sawatari.
** At least one Quincy [[spoiler: Yhwach]] has been confirmed to have been around for over a thousand years. Whether he's a human with an impossible lifespan or a dead Quincy whose spirit therefore follows the same aging rules as for shinigami (who are also spirits) is unknown.
* Holo from ''SpiceAndWolf'' is a centuries-old wolf god who assumes the form of a teenage girl.
* In ''RevolutionaryGirlUtena'', while we do not know just how old [[spoiler:Akio and Anthy]] are, it is clear that they have been around for a long time, possibly as long as the very concepts of 'Prince', 'Princess', and 'Witch'. Same goes for [[spoiler: Mikage]], though he may have been DeadAllAlong.
* Son Goku in ''Manga/{{Saiyuki}}'' was been imprisoned in a rock for 500 years without aging before being freed by Sanzo. Goku's apparent age is supposed to be 18, but he looks 12.
* Deconstructed in ''MermaidSaga''. Because the immortal Masato is stuck with the body of a young boy, he can't get by in society without a caretaker, which he often quickly outlives. He can't stay in one place for more than two years for risk of raising suspicion to his nature. He eventually goes nuts over having to deal with this for over eight hundred years.
* Chizuru in ''LightNovel/{{Kanokon}}'' is 400 years old, yet looks (and acts) like an 18 year old. After all this time, she's ''still'' a virgin.
** Don't forget about Nozomu, who is stated to be 200 years old, despite looking like an elementary student.
* The Mu in ''TowardTheTerra'' can keep a youthful appearance despite living much longer than normal humans. Namely Blue who is 300 years old.
* In ''KyouKaraMaou'' the Mazoku live many a century and age at a much slower rate than humans do. A radical example would be Ulrike who is 800 years old yet looks like a little girl. Somewhat subverted in Ondine's sister who does look quite old despite the fact that her sister, who is even older than Ulrike, still seems very much like a kid. An interesting case is [[spoiler:Murata who looks like a teen yet has memories from several reincarnations going back millennia]].
** In the anime, at least, we are told that ordinary Mazoku age about 1 human year for every 5 years they live (hence Wolfram is in his 80s but seems to be about 16 or 17). Ulrike and Ondine's positions as ''Genshi Miko'' (basically high priestesses) seem to have allowed them to age even slower, hence Ondine appearing so much younger than her own twin sister.
* Miyu in ''VampirePrincessMiyu'' is tragic example of this trope. She looks thirteen years old, [[spoiler:but her growth was magically stunted by the Shinma so she can hunt the ones who ran away to the human world and take all the time in the world to do so]].
* Czeslaw Meyer of ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'' looks like he's ten years old. In hindsight, he probably should have waited a little longer before drinking the elixir of immortality in 1711...
** Of course, he's far from the only one, even if he's the most extreme case. There are quite a few characters (Huey, Elmer, Maiza, etc.) that drank the same concoction, making most of them at least 250 years old by the time the series starts. There's also Firo, who already had enough trouble [[OlderThanTheyLook passing for his actual age]] ''before'' immortality...
** However, unlike the others, the only thing Czeslaw really gained from his immortality was the ability to survive [[BreakTheCutie ''years'' of torture]]. Added on to 200+ years of eternal childhood and, well... [[BlessedWithSuck sucks to be him]]. In comparison [[spoiler: Sylvie]], who while still immortal, deliberately waited until she was in her twenties to become so to avoid spending eternity as a teenager. Look at Czeslaw's experience and say that this wasn't a good move.
* Master Karin of ''Manga/DragonBall'' looks like an ordinary house cat (albeit a [[FunnyAnimal walking, talking]] house cat) but is really over 800 years old.
** Master Roshi (aka Muten Roshi), despite looking in his 70s since the start is actually ''300 years old'', as is his rival the Crane Hermit and ''his'' brother Mercenary Tao. Roshi and Crane are old enough to have been young monks when King Piccolo ravaged the Earth 300 years ago. Garlic and his son Garlic Jr., nemeses to Kami in a NonSerialMovie and anime filler are also at least 300 years old. And if you think that's astounding, Roshi's older sister Uranai Baba, is ''500 years old''. In anime {{filler}}, Roshi's turtle celebrates his one thousandth birthday. Mr. Popo has been attendant to every Guardian of Earth (or at least a large number), so he's much, much older.
** The Nameless Namekian separated into Kami and King Piccolo 300 years ago, having already been about 200 when this happened. Non Serial Movie villain Lord Slug and Namekian elder Guru (who actually ''does'' look his age) is also from this time. Oddly enough, prior to remerging with Kami, Piccolo Jr., King Piccolo's reincarnation was about 14 years old (though he had already merged with an older Namekian in the Frieza saga). Namekian merging is... complicated.
** The Kais are in the millions of years old. The Eastern Supreme Kai killed Bibidi, the creator of Majin Buu, five million years ago, making Bibidi's son Babidi at least that old. Numerous other demons and deities from both the original manga and anime filler are likely at least as old.
*** Old Supreme Kai takes the cake here, as he's ridiculously old even by Kai standards. He actually does look pretty old, but he counts his age a "15 generations". Logically, he'd be talking about ''Kai'' generations. Considering that Eastern Supreme Kai has not visibly aged in 5 million years, this would be an [[TimeAbyss unbelievably long time indeed.]]
**** Furthermore, the age he's showing is not his own. He accidentally fused with an old witch when he was young, and has looked that old ever since.
* ''{{Trigun}}'' has [[spoiler:Vash and Knives]], who look in their mid-twenties despite being over 130 years old in the anime and over 150 years old in the manga. It's also unspecified just how old [[spoiler:(manga only) Chronika/Kronika and Domina]] are, but they might be over a century (they also look in their mid- to late twenties, while [[spoiler:the twins]] still looked like teenagers when they were 'only' eighty years old).
* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' has the Really Four Hundred Years Old [[spoiler:Hohenheim]], who perpetually looks in his thirties or forties. The manga also has [[spoiler:Father]], who looks about twenty years older than the former, and the anime has [[spoiler:Dante, Hohenheim's repudiated wife]]. Most of the homunculi count too, especially [[spoiler:Envy in the anime (400+ ), Pride/Selim in the manga (400+ but the body of a little boy), and Greed (200+ ) in most of his incarnations]].
** Ironically, in the manga, the oldest Homunculus, [[spoiler: Pride, has the appearance of a 6-year-old]], whilst the youngest Homunculus [[spoiler: (discounting Ling as the second Greed), is Wrath, the oldest-looking of the Homunculi - who happens to be the only one that actually looks his age.]]
* The eponymous character from ''ImmortalRain'' looks to be in his twenties, but has been alive for the past 200 years. Same goes for the villain, the literal Methuselah, who has been endlessly reincarnated since the beginning of humanity.
* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' has Lordgenome, who looks to be no older than his early forties, but is actually at least 1000 years old.
** This is the case for all the Beastmen, considering that Cytomander can be referred to as a fledgeling despite being over 200 years old and Guame is only a few years younger than Lordgenome. (Although Guame at least looks elderly, at least as far as one can tell with an anthropomorphic armadillo)
* ''{{Claymore}}'' has Isley and Riful, who look like a [[{{Bishonen}} handsome young man]] and a [[CreepyChild little girl]] respectively despite being centuries old, not to mention [[WasOnceAMan not even human.]]
* The trope name is exactly true for Caerula Sanguis from ''[[{{Gunnm}} Battle Angel Alita: Last Order]]''. Her age is actually quite significant. She has spent most of them learning and refining both her [[LadyofWar wu shu straightsword techniques]] and her [[BatmanGambit comprehensive combat strategies]] in the service of protecting humankind.
* Subverted in episode two of otherwise softcore (by modern standards) ''TheElvenBride''. When the eponymous elf was asked about her age, she replies seventeen, to which the girl pointed out that seventeen elf years is long in comparison to human years. She promptly explains that she has only lived 17 human years since she was born.
* Many of the protagonists from Tsutomu Nihei's ''Blameverse'' stories, due to being advanced cyborgs. Sosono Musubi of ''Noise'' goes on to live for millennia after being upgraded by The Safeguard. Killy from ''{{Blame}}'' is at least 3,000, but he doesn't realize it because his brain has run out of space several times and had to be overwritten.
* Taikoubou from ''HoushinEngi'', despite looking like a teenager, is revealed right in the beginning to be an immortal who is 72+ years old. However, it is later revealed that he is [[spoiler: much older than even that when he returns to being Fukki, one of the First People (an ancient alien race)]].
* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' [[MagicRealism isn't very clear about how age applies to its characters]], but China's profile says that he's 4,000 years old and he doesn't look much older than his mid-twenties.
** "I've loved you since the 900s." -Holy Roman Empire to Chibitalia.
*** Since the nations have been shown in different historical events at different times, it's safe to assume that they're more than a century or two old.
** [[WordOfGod The author]] has explicitly stated that China is immortal.
** There are also WordOfGod "human ages" for several of the characters, placing most of the characters biologically in their twenties – for instance, America is 19, Italy and Germany are both 20, and England is 23 – but China alone is listed as 4,000 years old and immortal. Countries seem to age according to both how old they are and how quickly the country develops; Italy was a small child for (presumably) centuries, but England received quite a shock when he left a tiny America and came back after a few decades to find one that was taller than him.
* Beelzebub, the most feared demon (behind [[Manga/DragonBall Dabura]]) in the ''SandLand'' is somewhere around 2,000 years old but is still considered a child and has a bed time.
* Mito of ''SpacePirateMito'' is an alien that is over ten thousand years old, but looks like she could be in third grade.
* Alucard of ''{{Hellsing}}''. He's a 567-year-old vampire at the start of the series, and he looks to be in his early forties at ''most''.
** This depiction of his age is rather fitting. The historical Vlad Dracula died in battle in 1476 at the age of forty-five.
*** In the prequel manga series ''Hellsing: The Dawn'', Alucard takes the form of a 14 year old girl.
** Don't forget Helena from the anime. She appears to be a prepubescent girl somewhere between twelve and fourteen years old, apparently because she was turned into a vampire at a very young age, and has been around for a very, ''very'' long time. Just how long is never determined, but it's implied that she is one of the oldest vampires ever seen in the series.
* In ''Manga/{{Nobunagun}}'', the DOGOO Commander is almost 1,800 years old, while her assistant Saint-Germain is around 1,000 years old. In the Commander's case this is due to several centuries-long periods of stasis that she underwent while combing through history looking for individuals to turn into E-genes, while Saint-Germain is implied to have CompleteImmortality.
* In ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', Ayanami Rei has a 14-year-old body, but the soul of an entity that is ''billions'' of years old. So does Kaworu.
** Keel Lorentz, the head of [[AncientConspiracy SEELE foundation]], is rumored to be an Eternal Jew himself. Though he leaves enough of the [[HollywoodCyborg high-tech implants ]]during the Instrumentality.
* ''Manga/InuYasha'': {{Youkai}} have lifespans that are vastly in excess of human lifespans. Even child characters such as [[{{Kitsune}} Shippou]] have been around for decades despite their biological youth. Teen characters such as Sesshoumaru have been around for centuries. Even a HalfHumanHybrid has an unnaturally long lifespan. The {{canon}} never gives Inuyasha's age, but a flashback to his mother shows she wore the clothes of a Heian noblewoman, and that era died out 500 years before the story's setting ([[{{Filler}} the anime gives him an age of 200]]). [[BigBad Naraku]] [[HalfHumanHybrid himself]] has been around for decades at least.
* Washuu Ryuugasaki, the school principal in ''CyberTeamInAkihabara''.
** Don't forget Crane Bahnsteik and Cigogne Ratspieu.
* Cassian from ''{{Godchild}}'' is really thirty-five, but a medical condition caused his body to stop growing just before he hit puberty.
* [[http://www.onemanga.com/Katekyo_Hitman_Reborn/254/03/ The entire Arcobaleno]] of ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'' apparently.
* All the vampires and dampirers from ''TheRecordOfAFallenVampire'', with the exception of [[OlderThanTheyLook Laetitia]], who's only in her 60s.
* Cheza in ''WolfsRain'' looks to be about 13 or so, but is actually around 200 years old. Lord Darcia and his lover Hamona are also several centuries old, but appear to be in their 20s.
* In ''Manhwa/ChroniclesOfTheCursedSword'', [[MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate Dr.]] [[MadDoctor Laobi]] looks like she's in her mid-twenties, but is late found to be about 150 and [[spoiler: the mother of the BadassGrandpa and OldMaster.]] She keeps herself looking young with [[ForScience Science]].
* Melchisedec, Carmichael and the Emilys in ''SoukouNoStrain''.
* Elda Marker from ''{{Karin}}''. In fact, she looks younger than Karin herself, despite being unspeakably old.
* In ''Anime/YuGiOh'' Dartz looks twenty despite being 10,000 years old.
** Yami and Bakura might fall under this trope as well, but technically, they're spirits inhabiting the bodies of two 16-year-olds.
* Klan Klang from ''MacrossFrontier'' is an odd example. In her natural [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever Zentraedi]] state, she looks the right age (BoobsOfSteel aside), but when [[IncredibleShrinkingMan micronized]] to human size she looks like a 10- or 12-year-old because of a genetic defect. This actually inhibits a potential relationship with her crush [[ChivalrousPervert Mikael]], who points out that if they got together, [[{{Lolicon}} he'd be arrested]] - which earns him a DopeSlap from the unhappy Klan.
* Dragons, like Filia and Valgaav, and ''Mazoku'', like Xellos, are either long-lived or immortal in ''{{Slayers}}''; Xellos is well over a millennium old, Valgaav is shown to be at least as old as Xellos, while Filia is several hundred years old, but not as old as Valgaav (which is pointed out in the anime, when she is shown tidbits of Valgaav's childhood). While elves also live at least twice as long as humans do, some human sorcerers with a lot of magical power can live for a century or two. Finally, chimeras can live for ages or die quickly, something that was [[WordOfGod addressed by the light novel author]]. In theory, if [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Zelgadis]] were to remain a chimera for the rest of his life, he could live for several hundred years.
* The BigBad Liselotte Werckmeister from ''ElevenEyes'' has been around for 800 years due to her immortality.
* Mephisto Pheles of ''Manga/BlueExorcist'' [[spoiler:is said to have been working with the exorcists for around 200 years at this point. He is probably even older than that.]] He looks more like he's in his thirties - sometimes a little younger or older.
* One chapter of SayonaraZetsubouSensei shows a [[FlashForward brief glimpse fifty years into the future]] in which the former students have noticeably aged (Nami and Mataro are white-haired and wrinkled, Usui is almost completely bald, Kaede is shown in silhouette but has a granddaughter). Then there's [[spoiler: [[NightmareFuelStationAttendant Kafuka]],]] who hasn't changed. ''At all''.
* Akasha Bloodriver from ''RosarioToVampire'' looked to be in her late twenties at the oldest... and looked exactly the same 200 years ago. Same goes for the other Dark Lords, though Fuhai plays with this a bit by having a SleepModeSize body that looks like a MiniatureSeniorCitizen.
** The [[AnIcePerson Snow Priestess]] is well over 100, but looks 30-40.
* The Wolkenritter of ''LyricalNanoha'' have existed for centuries at least but look like they're in their twenties. [[LittleMissBadass Vita]] is an extreme case.
* Tomoe from ''Manga/KamisamaKiss'' looks to be in his late teens, early twenties but has been around for over five centuries.
* [[HotWitch Arachne]] from ''Manga/SoulEater'' is over 800 years old. You sure as hell wouldn't be able to tell by looking at her.
** The same goes for Asura, on the occasions he comes across as more 'human' than [[HumanoidAbomination 'abomination']].
* Demons in ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows'' are several hundred years old, but look and act like teenagers; except for Elsea, who [[ImmortalImmaturity acts like an eight-year-old]].
* In ''LightNovel/DragonCrisis'' Maruga, the White Dragon Empress looks to be in her late teens/early twenties, but she knew her uncle, who died over a hundred years ago, which means she is over a hundred years old. Onyx, who was Maruga's childhood friend would also be over a hundred as well.
* In ''Manga/{{Toriko}}'', the three disciples of Acacia (Ichiryu, Jiro, and Midora) are at least over 200 years old. They certainly don't look it, and they're some of the most powerful people in the series.
* Considering that half the characters in MythicalDetectiveLokiRagnarok are gods or monsters from NorseMythology, this is to be expected. Though, most of them [[ImmortalImmaturity certainly don't act like it]]. Then again, they don't in the original myths either...
* PlayedForLaughs in ''LightNovel/ChuunibyouDemoKoiGaShitai'', where Shinka, when she was in her MsImagination persona "Mori Summer," claimed of 700 years old more than she actually is and was the only living mage in the world.
* ''Manga/HekikaiNoAion'': Seine is 300 years old and has an appearance of a teenager.
* ''GateKeepers''' Houjou Yukino looks like a ten year old even though she's more than eight hundred years old.
* Shrine Maiden Ulrike, from ''KyouKaraMaou'', is 800 but looks like a young girl. Ondine, the maiden before Ulrike looks ''even younger''.
* King and his sister, Elaine, from ''Manga/NanatsuNoTaizai'' have the appearance of little kids, but they are both much, ''much'' older than what they look like. They're at least over seven hundred years old, for those curious.
* THE ENTIRE MAIN CAST of LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya, due to a time loop that made them live for over 600 years. Only one team member actually REMEMBERS all those hundreds of years, making her the only one likely to TRULY be 600+. Haruhi/Kyon might be if they are the godlike being/s the whole series is revolving around. In fact, with them, it might be a TimeAbyss that neither can remember.
** [[spoiler:Mikuru never told us her real age, not to mention her possibly far past adult self doing the same.]]
* ''LightNovel/{{Campione}}'' has Divine Ancestors, goddesses who were trapped in the form of pre-pubescent children when a god usurped their position. Many spend centuries seeking to regain their power, never aging unless they sacrifice their eternal youth to [[ScaledUp become a dragon]].
** The two female Campiones also qualify, appearing to be in their teens but having actually lived centuries.
** Pandora, the goddess who watches over the Campione ritual and asks them to treat her as their mother, looks like a young child. The ritual has been in place for centuries.
* From ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' we have the Toad Sages: Fukasaku, Shima, and the Great Toad Sage. Fukasaku and Shima are ''800 years old'' while the Great Toad Sage is ''1000 years old'', making them the oldest lived beings next to the ''Biju'' which are ''thousands of years old''.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ''ComicBook/{{Fables}}'', by Bill Willingham, subverts this in a departure from the source material: it seems the Blue Fairy was a little too literal when it came to Pinocchio. As he puts it, "I want to get ''laid!''" He aspires to someday meet the over-literal fairy that granted his wish, so that he can "kick her blue ass". At one point, they blackmail a columnist by taking compromising photos of him with Pinocchio while he's passed out, then threaten to use them to "prove" he's a pedophile.
** Ozma, the leader of the Thirteenth Floor Sorcerers, looks about ten, but is centuries old, at least.
** Creator/NeilGaiman's take on the Eternals did this too: Sprite is the ONLY child Eternal, and he's ticked off enough about it [[spoiler: to set in train the events that turned all the Eternals into ordinary humans and made everyone forget they ever existed]]. He's particularly ticked that [[spoiler: Sersi]] has slept with ''every'' male Eternal except -- guess who?
* ''ComicBook/ElfQuest'' occasionally gets flack because of the slim, large-headed, waifish proportions of the centuries-old protagonists. This does occasionally get lampshaded in the plot; for instance, on one occasion Tyleet meets a human couple who can't believe she's old enough to be pregnant.
* [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Ragamuffin]] from ''ComicBook/LenoreTheCuteLittleDeadGirl''.
** Lenore herself, too. She looks like she's ten (which she was in the moment she died), but she's actually a 100 years old [[UndeadChild dead girl]].
* Arisia, a Franchise/GreenLantern who originally appeared to be in her late teens (at the oldest) and who had a romantic relationship with Hal Jordan, was recently revealed to be several hundred years old and a member of a species that ages much slower than humans. This was a retcon to lower the {{Squick}} factor; originally there was a plotline where her feelings for Hal, combined with her [[AppliedPhlebotinum power ring]], caused her to go through puberty ahead of time so that she could appear to be of acceptable age.
* ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}'s healing factor also slows his aging; he was born in the late 19th century and fought alongside ComicBook/CaptainAmerica in WWII.
* Several characters in Neil Gaiman's ''ComicBook/TheSandman'', including Mad Hettie and Hob Gadling, are otherwise normal humans who live for several hundred years.
** Not to mention several of the Endless, those of human appearance, that is. For example, Morpheus and his sister Death, along with their estranged brother Destruction. All three have been around since the beginning of time, yet none look older than late thirties or early forties. Death in fact looks like she is still in her twenties (supposed to appear about sixteen, at least according to Gaiman's original idea of her).
** The witch Thessaly (later known as Larissa) is several millennia old and one of the last of her kind, but looks to be in her late twenties or early thirties.
** Don't forget Shivering Jemmy, who is a Lord of Chaos (and therefore presumably pretty old), but takes the form of a little girl in clown make-up.
** This Quote: ''There are not many of them, all things considered: the truly old. Even on this planet, in this age, when people consider a mere hundred years, or a thousand, to be an unusual span. There are, for example, less than ten thousand humanoid individuals alive today who have personal memories of the saber-toothed tiger, the megatherium, the cave bear. There are today less than a thousand who walked the streets of Atlantis (The first Atlantis. The other lands that bore than name were shadows, echo-Atlantises, and they came later.) There are less than five hundred living humans who remember the human civilizations that predated the great lizards (There were a few; fossil records are unreliable. Several of them lasted for millions of years.)There are roughly seventy people walking the Earth, human to all appearances (and in some cases, to all medical tests currently available) who were alive before the Earth had begun to congeal from gas and dust. How well do you know your friends, your neighbors, your lovers? Walk the streets of any city and stare carefully at the people who pass you, and know this: They are there too. The old ones.''
* In Marvel's old ''ComicBook/ConanTheBarbarian''-continuity, the necromancer Thulsa Doom has been around since before the Valusian era. Although visibly undead, this should still make him a rather extreme example, as it means he's well over 20,000 years old.
* ComicBook/VandalSavage was born roughly 50,000 BC. He's an immortal caveman who's spent his time with world domination plots. And he invented cannibalism.
* A ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'' comic set in the Clone Wars introduces us to Fay, a centuries-old Jedi who understands the Power of Love and has used it to end and prevent wars, doesn't use a lightsabre and doesn't need to, is kept from physically aging past her twenties by her strong connection to the Force, and who if she hadn't given her reserves of Force energy to Obi-Wan to allow him to escape would have recovered from a fatal lightsabre wound. If not for her Heroic Sacrifice Fay would have lived forever. Let us hope she joins the ranks of Expanded Universe characters with action figures.
** Fay's sacrifice has consequences far beyond saving Obi-Wan. [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Fay Details here.]]
** The Anzat is a race of vampiric creatures that appear from time to time in the novels, who can live upwards of 900 years or so. Their society is so ancient, their history predates the Jedi ''and'' the Sith, and while they prefer to feed on Force-sensitive creatures, they don't call the Force by that name; they consider that a term that younger races use for it. (They usually call it "luck" or "Sea of Memory" if they want to be fancier.)
* Several characters from ''ComicBook/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'' series fulfill the trope, at least in later installments of the comic, such as ''Black Dossier''. Mina Murray is given immortality by her encounter with Dracula, Allan Quatermain is rejuvenated after bathing in a pool of eternal youth, and Orlando is millenia-old and has changed hir sex numerous times during the centuries. None look older than their late thirties; in fact, only Quatermain even comes close to looking even that old.
* The Shade, of ''Comicbook/{{Starman}}'' fame, was born sometime in the early 1800s, and hasn't aged since the event that gave him his powers. His potential futures see him living for millennia to come.
* Zeke Vicker from ''ComicBook/StarRaiders''.
* Perhaps the hardest-invoked of all in Marvel continuity is the X-villain Selene, the External former Black Queen of the Hellfire Club. It's long been established that she's immortal, despite appearing to be in her mid-30's at most. Turns out she's really '''17,000 years old'''.
* [[ComicBook/RasAlGhul Ra's al Ghul]] looks to be about in his 50s, but is really over 600 years old. This is due to his continuous revivals in the Lazarus pits (magical pools of... stuff... that can restore the dead to life).
** Even older is his father [[OldMaster The Sensei]].
** His daughter Nyssa Raatko is similar, having been born in the 19th century and used a Lazarus Pit to keep herself young.
* Alpha One of ComicBook/TheMighty looks like he is in his twenties but he had been operating since he appeared in 1952. [[spoiler: It turns out that he's much older than that. He is an alien who had been around since the Revolutionary War.]]
* [[spoiler:Knuckles The Echidna]] and Chaos in ComicBook/SonicTheComic was alive during the great war between the Echindnas and the Drakons which happened over eight thousand years ago.
** Webcomic/SonicTheComicOnline adds [[spoiler:Tikal The Echidna]] who was sealed with Chaos, Vichama the God of Death and the reason [[spoiler:Knuckles The Echidna]] is immortal as well as a weapon by the Drakon Empire called [[spoiler:Shadow The Hedgehog]] and the advanced Guardian Robot called the Gizoid.
* The vast majority of the depictions of Franchise/{{Superman}} in any future time period show that he ages significantly slower than humans do. In the elseworld's tale "Generations" Superman does fit this trope, Batman gets in on the act as well and Superman's granddaughters do as well (in fact, one of them is stuck in her early teens for over a century before finally getting it fixed so that she can age to adulthood.)
* [[Comicbook/ClanDestine Adam Destine]] is about eight hundred years old and looks more like twenty, having been granted CompleteImmortality by his beloved, the djinn Elalyth. Their children do age, but very slowly, so the older ones count for LongLived. Gracie, for example, is four hundred and looks about sixty or seventy.
* Father Time in ''ComicBook/FrankensteinAgentOfSHADE'' is commander of a super-secret covert-ops agency and whose latest incarnation is a little Japanese schoolgirl.
* [[ComicBook/TheAuthority Jenny Sparks]] from the Wildstorm universe looks like she's in her 20s, when she's actually over 100, which gets repeated a lot. She's the spirit of the 20th Century, eventually gets rebirthed into a new form as the spirit of the 21st Century too repeat the process again.
* {{Rip Van Wink|le}} a character in early issues of ComicBook/TheBeano had as his main gimmick that he had been asleep for 700 years which easily makes him 700 years old at least.
* Solomon Ravne from ''[[ComicBook/TwoThousandAD 2000 AD's]]'' ''Caballistics, Inc.'' is suggested to be around 300 years old and must keep up his more youthful appearance through ritualistic {{Blood Bath}}s and other forms of the TheDarkArts.
* Christian Walker from ''ComicBook/{{Powers}}'' is revealed to be a proto-human hominid that has evolved over tens of thousands of years into a modern human with super powers. Most of which he can't remember. There's hints that many of the major super beings in the setting may also have extremely long lives, or be part of an ongoing reincarnation cycle that brings those powers back again and again.
* S'aru the Protector from ''ComicBook/RedHoodAndTheOutlaws''.
** [[spoiler: Essence]]
* Most of the ComicBook/DemonKnights have some form of semi-immortality that has slowed down their aging process, and thus most of them are at least several hundred years old. The sole exception is Al Jabr, who is entirely human, and thus ages accordingly.
* Klara Prast of the ComicBook/{{Runaways}} is a bit of a variation. She was born sometime in the late 1890s, but traveled forward a hundred years in 1907, when she was about 11 or 12, so she's still, according to Marvel's SlidingTimescale, not quite in her teens. A more straightforward example from the series would be Topher, a vampire who was born around 1900 and was turned when he was 17. He lived to be over 100 years old before he was stupid enough to try and feed on Karolina Dean, whose blood is infused with solar energy. There's also Forget-Me-Not, a villainess encountered by the Runaways when they were stranded in 1907. She boasted that men had been fighting over her for centuries, although whether or not this was true is unrevealed.
* A group of TheKnightsTemplar (Kenneth Irons, Gerald Irons, Sir Renaud de Gaudin and one another person) from ComicBook/WitchBlade became immortal by drinking from the Holy Grail, there is also former Witchblade wielder Katarina Godliffe who lives in the Faerie realm which [[YearOutsideHourInside time flows differently]] allowing her to live to the present day there is also The Survivor who was born in the universe before the currect one.
* [[Franchise/WonderWoman The Amazons]] date back to Ancient Greece, and aside from Wonder Woman, their population hasn't increased in the 3000+ years of exile-they still look between twenty and forty years old. Elseworld stories show this applies to Wonder Woman as well.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fan Fiction]]
* Princess Jody from [[http://fav.me/d4a27sp Super Milestone Wars]] looks ten but she's actually over 1000 years old.
* ''FanFic/BagEnders'' features the [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Fellowship of the Ring]] living in early-2000s England. Technically all the characters fall under this heading, being Really Six Thousand Years Old, but the hobbits in particular are constantly mistaken for children. This gives them problems when being carded in pubs, but allows them to get away with childrens' fares on trains and infiltrate the Boy Scouts.
* [[spoiler: Chaos]] from the ''FanFic/TamersForeverSeries'' fits the trope
-->'''Takato:''' ''So you're older than the Big Bang, huh?''
-->[[spoiler:'''Chaos:''']] ''Yeah, pretty much…hard to believe, huh?''
-->'''Ruki:''' ''Yeah, anyone would think you'd have matured by now…''
-->[[spoiler:'''Chaos:''']] ''Hey!''
* This comes up in ''FanFic/TheManWithNoName'' when River mentions that [[Series/DoctorWho the Doctor]] is too old for her. [[Series/{{Firefly}} Mal]], believing himself to be about the same age, feels rather put out by this. (Funnily enough, Creator/NathanFillion and Creator/DavidTennant are less than a month apart age-wise. Were the Doctor human and both of them the same age as their actors, Reynolds would be right on the money).
* In ''Fanfic/FalloutEquestriaPinkEyes'', the lead character Puppysmiles is a [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic little filly]]. She's also was [[OurZombiesAreDifferent ghoulified]] at the start of the Great War, and though it's been two centuries since, she's still the same hyperactive foal, only with [[HealingFactor new skills]].
* In Fanfic/NoirAnge, a Manga/SoulEater fanfic, Zelda Kitsune is this literally, but she looks like a 17-year old girl. There's also Yuuki and Yuuka, and all of the other Witches count as well.
* In ''Fanfic/MassEffectHumanRevolution'', Adam Jensen is actually 190 years old, though this is partially due to his augments and partially due to being cryogenically frozen for a century.
* In the ''FanFic/PonyPOVSeries'', the entire [[BadFuture Dark World]] mane cast, as Discord made them immortal and have lived for a thousand years old. Derpy also is, due to the curse Discord put on her.
** To note, the ''only'' member of the good guy's group who ''isn't'' a thousand years old or older is Apple Pie, Applejack and Pinkie's multiple times great niece and the new Element of Laughter, and Spike's the only one who's that way ''naturally''.
* In Fanfic/CadanceOfCloudsdale, Princess Cadance, actually. Not that she remembers much of it.
* ''FanFic/JusticeLeagueOfEquestria'':
** Rainbow Dash/[[{{Superman}} Supermare]] is technically a thousand years old, but due to the TimeyWimeyBall of Kryptonian {{Magitek}}, is biologically the age she appears to be physically.
** [[WonderWoman Diana]] was born/created about a year before the Nightmare Moon incident, making her about a thousand years old as well. However, she is physically the same age as the Mane Six.
** For that matter, Cadence was born shortly before Diana, meaning she's just as old, but again, doesn't look that much older than the Mane Six either.
* Lelouch in ''FanFic/SoulChess'' is an unusual example. While all shinigami age slower, Lelouch doesn't age at all for almost 150 years due to a TimeyWimeyBall sending him back roughly that far after he dies. [[HilariousInHindsight Which makes it pretty funny when people he knew as children start looking older than him]].
* ''FanFic/{{Hivefled}}''; thanks to a magical life-extending kiss from Condesce, the Grand Highblood has remained an adult in his prime since before the birth of a now-elderly troll a blood caste above him (thus with a lifespan which should be significantly longer than his).
* Given that the length of Homura's GroundhogDayLoop in ''PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' is fairly ambiguous, some portrayals of her veer into this. In ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/577310/chapters/1035515 Persephone's Waltz]]'', Homura claims to have "lost count in the four-eighties," which would make her 74 at least. ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8097991/1/A-Thousand-Years A Thousand Years]]'' [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin gives its take in the title]]. ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6801224/1/All-The-Time-In-The-World All The Time in the World]]'' cuts off after one million and one, which would make her [[TimeAbyss hundreds of thousands of years old]]. The [[BonusMaterial non-canon-but-official]] ''Tamura Magica'' claims in a joke that Homura has aged to the point of having an unnaturally-fast perception of time, viewing a loop as being only a few days. Given that such effects are thought to be dependent on proportion, this would probably make her around fifteen times older, or 210. WordOfGod offhandedly suggests her to be around 26.
** ''FanFic/ToTheStars'' explicitly notes that Puella Magi have no need to age (a fairly common piece of fanon, based on the above). Consequently, it has characters from the original series sticking around in the 25th century.
* In ''FanFic/TheLightNeverGoesOut'' the Mane Six are really 200 years old while they look like they're in their 30s or 40s thanks to the Elements of Harmony.
* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10063155/10/Song-of-the-Serpent Song of the Serpent]]'' lamia tended to live rather long lives while not looking it, due to greatly slowed aging after they hit fifteen. According to Harry's uncle his great-great grandfather died at the age of six hundred and thirteen.

[[folder: Films - Animated]]
* Mother Gothel from ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'' is stated to be several centuries old.
* Although ''WesternAnimation/WallE'' is seven hundred years old, he is actually still working even after the day humanity left Earth. Somewhat justified in that he's seen replacing damaged parts using components from other robots of the same model, of which there are hundred or thousands lying around. It's likely he's replaced every part of himself many times over, save for his motherboard, RAM and memory.
* Crush from ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'', is a hundred fifty years old, and is still young.[[note]]TruthInTelevision for large turtles; even snapping turtles can live over seventy-five years, and tortoises and sea turtles have been known to live to 200.[[/note]]
* Sheriff Woody from ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' just happens to be the leader and the oldest member of Andy's toys (he was created in the 1950s).
* Kida in ''Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire'' is said to be old enough to forget her original written language, whatever that means.
** Milo estimates her age as somewhere around 8,500 years. She replies "yes", as though this isn't anything to be surprised about.
** One Atlantean year is actually equivalent to 300 human years. This would mean that if Kida's age was compared to that of a normal human's, then she would approximately be 28 years old.
* Jack Frost in ''RiseOfTheGuardians'' is at least 300-years-old - but he barely looks past his late teens. [[spoiler:He sacrificed himself to save his little sister as a human - because of this, he gained immortality and the power to control ice and snow]].
** All of the Guardians and Pitch are said to be several centuries old.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:{{Film}}s - Live Action]]
* Dorian Gray, in the film version of ''Film/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen''. His exact age isn't given, but curmudgeonly old Allan Quartermain (played by Sean Connery) mentions that as a boy, he saw Gray giving a lecture at Eton College. In the original novel, Gray is never said to be immortal or invulnerable; he just retains his youthful appearance.
* In ''[[Film/SevenFacesOfDrLao 7 Faces of Dr. Lao]]'', the eponymous doctor is technically an example of this trope, in that he looks rather old, but not nearly his true age of seven thousand, three hundred and twenty-two.
* John from ''TheManFromEarth'' looks like your regular guy, not like the 14,000-year-old caveman he actually is.
* Sam, the CreepyChild in ''Film/TrickRTreat''.
* The title character in ''Film/TheImaginariumOfDoctorParnassus''.
* In the ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' films, like the books, many characters are OlderThanTheyLook, but the elves are all hundreds or thousands of years old.
** Elrond is featured in the opening prologue, which happens three thousand years before the story proper starts. When he appears again later on, he looks exactly the same.
** Galadriel (as explained in the books) is a lot older; she's the only elf remaining in Middle-earth who is mentioned before the first rising of the Sun, over 6000 years ago. She's played by CateBlanchett, who was in her early thirties at the time of filming.
* ''Film/{{Thor}}'': Asgardians can live hundreds, if not thousands of years and still be physically capable of feats of strength. The same thing applies to Frost Giants. If Loki was born about the same time as the battle in the prologue, that makes him over 1040 years old. In [[ThorTheDarkWorld The sequel]], he comments that Asgardians can live for approximately 5000 years.
* The villainess in ''{{Kull}} the Conqueror'', leading to this exchange:
-->'''Monk''': She's 3,000 years old.
-->'''Kull''': She said she was 19!
* In the film version of ''TheGreenMile'', [[spoiler: Mr. Jingles the mouse]] is still alive, albeit very elderly, after an unprecedented [[spoiler: sixty years. Mice normally only live for one to three years, making the little guy older than Methuselah when adjusted for species.]]
* The 2000 ''Film/DungeonsAndDragons'' film had this interaction between Snails and Norda the elf, when Snails is chatting her up:
-->'''Norda:''' How old are you?\\
'''Snails:''' Twenty-three. Yeah, I know I'm a little young for you, but what if I get my hands on an aging potion, huh? I'll sacrifice a couple of years for you.\\
'''Norda:''' I'm two hundred and thirty-four.
* In ''TheSantaClause'', all the elves are played by children, one of whom informs Scott that she has "pointy shoes that are older than you". Judy, one of the head elves, looks to be about ten years old. When she mentions that it took her 1,200 years to perfect her cocoa recipe, Scott Calvin/Santa Claus tells her, "You know I must say, you look pretty good for your age," to which she hilariously responds, "Thanks... but I'm seeing someone in wrapping," eliciting a stare, a look of shock and a silently-mouthed "ooookay..." from Scott/Santa.
* ''Film/TheTinDrum'': The main character, Oskar, willingly stops aging, resulting in an adult male in the body of a toddler. Towards the end of the film, he meets a dwarf who appears to be an adult, but reveals that he's really close to one hundred years old. Like Oscar, he decided to stop aging, and says there are others like him. They mention that they could essentially become immortal if they wanted, invoking this trope.
* Wolverine in the [[Film/{{X-Men}} X-Men movies]] (as in [[Comicbook/{{X-Men}} the comics]]) is said by Jean Grey to likely be older than Prof. Xavier due to his HealingFactor. ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'' is even more explicit: Logan and Sabretooth were born in the ''first'' half of the 19th century, and fought alongside one another in TheAmericanCivilWar.
* Andre [[SignificantAnagram Linoge]], from ''StormOfTheCentury''. It's never made clear how long he's been around, but it's implied to have been at least since Biblical times. Toyed with in that, though he is old and still has at least another century to live (stating to the town that he will still be alive when the youngest among them has grown old and died), even others of his kind consider him to be nearing death. Which makes sense; if you've been around for at least 1000 years, another 100 is going to seem like just a few months.
* All of the vampires and Lycans in the ''Film/{{Underworld}}'' series are centuries old. The main character, Selene, is explicitly stated to be roughly 600. None of the others have their ages stated even in ballpark figures, though it's obvious that most, if not all, of the other named vampires and Lycans are at least older than Selene.
* All the vampires in the ''Film/{{Twilight}}'' movies
* Miriam and John in ''Film/TheHunger'', since they're both vampires. She turned him, and the trouble in the movie starts when his years begin to catch up with him, as eventually and invariably happens to all her companions...
* In ''Disney/DarbyOGillAndTheLittlePeople'' we are told that King Brian is around 5,000 years old.
* ''{{Hancock}}'': [[spoiler: Hancock and Mary]] are both several thousand years old.
* ''Franchise/StarWars'':
** Yoda is 900 years old in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''.
-->'''Yoda''': When 900 years old you reach, look as good you will not, hm? ''[chuckles]''
** The vampiric Anzati, who appear in many ExpandedUniverse novels, are an entire race who qualify. They can live to be up to a millennia.
* The giants from ''Film/JackTheGiantSlayer'' are long-lived, with many being the original invaders during their first invasion of Earth.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* ''TheVampireChronicles'': As vampires, most protagonists fall under that trope, but [[CreepyChild Claudia]] most of all, being at least one century old with the appearance of a little girl.
** The oldest is Akasha, the first vampire, who was the Queen of Ancient Egypt (although not Egyptian herself).
** Then we meet Memnoch, who is actually TheDevil, meaning he was around ''before time itself''.
* The book ''Literature/DownAndOutInTheMagicKingdom'' by Creator/CoryDoctorow, which includes rejuvenating technology, includes the line: "My girlfriend was 15 percent of my age, and I was old-fashioned enough that it bugged me."
* In ''Literature/PassingThrough'' We have the mercenary MagicKnight Lyra. Having a dollop of Elven blood in her ancestry means she remains quite lovely despite being in her fourth century, though a few strands of silver have begun to creep into her hair in recent years. She admits to being vain enough to dread the swiftly approaching loss of her beauty and vigor, which will start to happen in earnest in ''only'' another four or five ''decades''.
* Used in Creator/DavidEddings' ''Literature/{{Belgariad}}'', where all the Disciples of Aldur are at least 3,000 years old. Nobody points out that when Polgara [[spoiler:marries Durnik, who is around thirty, that he is approximately one hundredth of her age. Of course, a few pages after the wedding we learn that he, too, is now a sorcerer, so all's well and good. Or something like that.]]
** Nobody explicitly points it out, but Polgara gave up on dating early in life, and then it was just for a couple of weeks to irritate her father and bask in male attention. Early in the first book a boy suggests her marrying a normal man (who obviously loves her) and Polgara's reaction makes it clear the discrepancy is ''definitely'' in the front of her mind. [[spoiler:And when she's finally ready to try marriage, the Gods give her reason to believe that it means giving up magic and an extended lifespan...[[SecretTestOfCharacter just to make sure she really means it.]]]]
*** "Gave up on dating" may be an overstatement. It's not her fault she never married Count Ontrose (who was only 900 years younger than her).
** Her father, Belgarath, the oldest man in the world, and all his brother sorcerers appear old at first glance, but are all as healthy and hale as young men, because ''looking'' venerable is important to them subconsciously. Polgara is young-seeming because looking old for her is unacceptable.
** Also, the dryads from the same series. There's a fairly hilarious scene towards the end of the series when one character learns Garion (sorcerer) and Ce'Nedra (dryad) are likely to be young and, er, fruitful for a long, long time.
** It's worth nothing that ''any'' sorcerer who learns the secret gains extended lifespan. All Disciples of Aldur are sorcerers (Durnik joins this group), as are the Disciples of Torak and the Chandim (Hounds of Torak), Angaraks who are/were changed into a dog-like beast to better serve. A number of lesser servants of Torak are also sorcerers and thus have the gift. At least one independent sorcerer (a Melcene who doesn't practice religion) is also confirmed in ''The Malloreon'' to have lived for at least 3,000 years. The Gorim of the Ulgos is also given extended lifespan to a lesser extent; his time winds down when his successor is born.
* Also from David Eddings, Styrics in the ''{{Elenium}}'' and ''{{Tamuli}}'' trilogies have naturally longer lifespans than more typical humans like Elenes and Tamuls, and it's a natural characteristic of their race, so ''all'' Styrics age similarly. It's noted that Sephrenia has lived for several centuries yet appears youngish if a little age-weary in places. Later on, we learn that Delphae share that same trait (Xanetia is noted as looking no older than 16, but she's actually a bit over 100). Based on what is learned about their history, Delphae apparently were tampered by their god to extend their age, and Styrics may have been altered similarly by their pantheon.
** Styric Child-Goddess Aphrael is a goddess who incarnates herself into [[TheCutie five-year old child forms]]. Her true form is actually more like sixteen - Sparhawk is very insistent that [[PleasePutSomeClothesOn she remembers the clothes]] when she uses it - but she apparently finds "cute" easier to work with than "sexy" (She's actually about 30,000, but she still hasn't grown up, though).
* Also, in ''{{Strata}}'' by Creator/TerryPratchett, the heroine is not only several hundred years old, but also wealthy enough to buy herself a practically endless amount of extended life (while still physically appearing as a well-preserved 30-something).
** Aside from the hair. That's always the first thing to go, apparently.
** Not so much wealthy, but so well paid that's day's pay is more than day's cost for life extension.
* Creator/HPLovecraft had the avatar of Nyarlathotep, who appeared as a young Egyptian man, but actually was an older-than-time [[EldritchAbomination Eldritch Abomination]]
* Creator/JRRTolkien's Elves and various other beings in the long-lived/immortal category who of course can not be visually categorised chronologically.
** At one point in ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', Legolas reflects that he has lived longer than the country of Rohan has existed -- at minimum this makes him 509 during the book.
** Elrond himself was in his 50s during the War of Wrath against Morgoth and counted almost 3,500 years when he fought alongside King Elendil (his distant grand-nephew approximately 30 generations removed) in the War of the Last Alliance. Elrond is 6,517 years old in ''The Lord of the Rings'' and still looks "ageless, neither old nor young."
** Elrond's daughter Arwen, born 241 years after the War of the Last Alliance, eventually marries the Númenórean Aragorn -- who is 2,690 years her junior. She still looks as young as ever at the wedding.
** Galadriel is even older than Elrond. She was more than 8,300 when she and Frodo departed from the Gray Havens, having been born in Valinor before it was darkened. She is therefore actually older than ''the entire race of humanity''. And the sun and moon.
** All beaten by Círdan. He may be one of the elves who awoke at Cuiviénen, which would make him over 11,000 years old at the end of the Third Age. He even has a beard, somehow, which elves never do until they are ''many'' millennia old.
** Tom Bombadil and Goldberry are [[TimeAbyss as old as the world itself]] (or at least ol' Tom is) and don't look older than the elves, though Tom does choose to grow a beard.
--> '''Tom Bombadil:''' Eldest, that's what I am. Mark my words, my friends: [[ThirdPersonperson Tom]] was here before the river and the trees; Tom remembers the first raindrop and the first acorn. He made paths before the Big People, and saw the little People arriving. ... When the Elves passed westward, Tom was here already, before the seas were bent. He knew the dark under the stars when it was fearless--before the Dark Lord came from Outside.
** The Ents are also very old, and Fangorn (a.k.a Treebeard), "the eldest and chief of the Ents", is described by Gandalf as "the oldest living thing that still walks beneath the Sun upon this Middle-earth." (The question of who is oldest, Bombadil or Treebeard, has been debated by fans for decades. It's entirely possible that even Tolkien did not know the answer.)
** In a weirdly meta sense Bombadil is older than the world, he and Goldberry were originally from a poem Tolkien wrote in school and the setting grew around him.
** The [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Ainur (Valar and Maiar)]] are ''older'' than the world, and most of them [[VoluntaryShapeshifting can look however they please]].
* Also by J. R. R. Tolkien, [[BadassSanta Father Christmas]] in ''Literature/TheFatherChristmasLetters'' is as old as Christmas itself, giving his age as the then-current year (about 1,930). And ''his'' father, Grandfather Yule, is still around too.
* In ''TheChroniclesOfNarnia'' the Pevensies are all older than they look, all having lived to at least 40 within Narnia before returning to England at the same age as they left it. Also a case of ExpectingSomeoneTaller.
** Jadis in ''Literature/TheLionTheWitchAndTheWardrobe'': She is actually around 1,000 years old.
** ''Literature/TheVoyageOfTheDawnTreader'' has two characters who are extremely old. Both Coriakin and Ramadu are former stars, so they can be presumed to be billions of years old.
** The lady of the green Kirtle in ''Literature/TheSilverChair'' is at least hundreds of years old, possibly close to a thousand.
* In ''The Eyes of Hisenburg'' by Frank Herbert there is no reference to how far in the future it is. So you read through the book looking at the technology available and history mentioned and sort of assume that all this happens a few thousand years in the future. [[spoiler:At the end, however, there is an implication that that is off by magnitudes and that the entire civilization has stratified for hundreds (or more) of thousands of years.]]
* In AnneMcCaffrey's ''Crystal Singer'' series, all Crystal Singers have extended lifespans (along with a healing factor and varying degrees of super senses: in other words, Wolverine without the claws and violence) due to the native symbiotic organisms that permeate the atmosphere of Ballybran, the source of the crystals. At the end of the third book, the protagonist, Killashandra, is revealed to be over 230 years old. (Her first appearance in the first book has her in her early 20s.)
* In the ''Literature/RevelationSpace'' series by Creator/AlastairReynolds, Captain John Brannigan is several hundred years old, due to ''extreme'' modifications to his body and prolonged time in cryogenic sleep; he is by far the oldest human character in the series. The Captain was employed by ''NASA'' and was involved the Mars landings, yet the series takes place around 2600-2700 A.D. where Earth is rarely ever mentioned.
* In ''Literature/InheritanceCycle'':
** Eragon and Arya are supposedly an unsuitable match because Arya is a century older.
** Angela is apparently quite old, but those who don't know better mistake her for an ordinary middle-aged woman, Nasuada and Roran, to name just a couple.
** Rhunön is old enough to have been alive before the first dragon-elf union as Dragon rider and elves became immortal. That's about 9000 years ago.
** The Menoa Tree is even older. An elderly elf (before the elves became immortal) sang herself into the oldest tree in the (really old) forest. She's still alive.
* From ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', there is the Archive (otherwise known as Ivy), a child (seven when we first meet her, twelve at her last appearance) who has the memories of everything that was and is, plus the memories of all the previous Archives including her mother. This results in behaviour more suited to a 100-year-old, though she does break into kid mode in the presence of Harry Dresden's cat, Mister. She also writes her office's official letters in crayon and watches the otters at the aquarium.
** Dresdenverse wizards also live longer and age more slowly than ordinary humans. Warden Donald Morgan, Harry's parole officer, looks about fifty but has been in wizard law enforcement for over a hundred. Ebenezar [=McCoy=], Harry's mentor, looks to be in his sixties and is really over two hundred.
** Luccio has a particularly strong case of this, being over two-hundred years old but looking in her mid-twenties due to a wizard with a fondness for GrandTheftMe.
* Princess Abricotine in the FairyTale "The Imp Prince" is at least 600 years old, probably more, despite having the appearance of a young woman. (She is a fairy, which explains her age.)
* In Creator/IsaacAsimov's ''Robot'' novels, the "Spacers" (human colonists of extraterrestrial planets) are universally the beneficiaries of extremely extended lifespans: in ''Literature/TheCavesOfSteel'', a man of about 160 is barely starting to show the signs of age, and much later, in ''Literature/TheRobotsOfDawn'', the plot briefly features a man of 331 (who looks old, but obviously, not ''that'' old); the maximum is stated to be around 400, although they are usually half prosthetic by then.
* In ''Literature/TuckEverlasting'', Jesse tells Winnie he's 104 years old. She doesn't believe him. He then explains that he's really 24 years old. He was telling the truth the first time.
* In Creator/CJCherryh's Literature/AllianceUnion universe:
** ''Literature/{{Cyteen}}'' discusses how rejuv has affected society, as people can now live past 130 and still appear forty, and consequently keep control of family businesses and live to see their great-grandchildren grow up. The only Union citizens who really look old (apart from possible hair color changes) are those in rejuv failure.
** In ''Serpent's Reach'', the two oldest Family members in the Reach are effectively immune from assassination, as their younger relatives want to know what the practical limits are on their rejuv technique.
* In Creator/RogerZelazny works:
** ''This Immortal'' has the main character, Conrad Nomikos, look to be a powerfully-built man in his twenties. But we keep meeting people who know he's older... and older... and older... By the end of the book, the best guess is that he's between two and three hundred, and may never get any older.
** Zelazny loved to play with the concept of immortality and agelessness: ''Literature/LordOfLight'', ''Isle of the Dead'' or ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfAmber'' series have really 700 (or 7,000, or 70,000...)-years-old characters.
** And in ''Literature/ANightInTheLonesomeOctober'', Jack and his dog Snuff have both been to ''several'' of the meetings to determine the fate of the world. These happen when there is a full moon on Halloween, which happens only five or six times a century. At the very least this puts Jack past his early-30s appearance, and Snuff well past the expected lifespan of a moderate-to-large dog. Rumors about the pair are mentioned to have been floating around for several of the meetings, indicating they are older still; one of the theories espoused is that Jack is Cain himself.
* ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'': [[WitchSpecies Channelers]] enjoy a drastically extended lifespan, the extension likely dependent on power and usage. The oldest living Aes Sedai—and a powerful one at that—is approximately 300 years old. [[spoiler:The oldest living ''channeler'' met in the series (the Aes Sedai Oath Rod drastically ''reduces'' their lifespan) is about ''800'']].
** Not to mention the fact that the Forsaken are all several thousand years old, although it is a technicality of sorts, given that they are Type II immortals and have been stuck with the Sealed Evil in a Can for most of that time.
* The ''Literature/NightWatch'' series is rife with this, since all Others except certain witches stop aging when they are initiated, and nearly all Others can change their appearance through magic.
** They don't really stop aging at initiation, since most are initiated when they're children (like Anton). They age normally until about their 20s, at which point they stop.
* Subverted in ''Literature/BloodsuckingFiends''. After discovering Jody is a vampire, Tommy immediately assumes that it means she's also hundreds of years old. Jody is then forced to spend the next ten minutes explaining that she was turned into a vampire just days ago and she's just twenty-six -- physically ''and'' chronologically.
* Almost all the vampires in ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' fall under this category. For example, Carlisle Cullen, who appears to be ~30, is actually over 300 years old.
** The most extreme example in the series would be the Volturi twins Jane and Alec who appear to be in their mid-teens (are played by 17-18 year old actors in the film version). Though their actual age is never stated in the books, the date when they were turned to vampires has been ballparked to have been around the year 800, which would make them roughly 1200 years old.
** The Quilete "werewolves" are not this as most of them are actually stated to be slightly younger than the physically appear (Jacob is only 15 in the books, but appears to be in his early 20s). However, it is stated at one point that they will remain at that same physical age as long as they continue to regularly phase into their wolf forms, meaning that they would legitimately qualify for this trope after a few years.
* While prolong treatment in ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' has a working limit of about 250-300 years, it still tends to produce some really {{squick}}y effects. Like you could be 25, a seasoned military veteran controlling weapons capable of vaporising frakking ''planets'', but you still would look (and, biologically, be) ''twelve''.
** The series normally seems to avoid calling attention to it except at odd moments; as when one of Honor Harrington's personal guard is musing that the Steadholder they're guarding is older than any of them... but looks like someone's teen sister. The first time a Grayson admiral (whose planet doesn't have prolong) boards a Manticoran ship, he has to fight back his gut reaction that the ship appears crewed by kids.
*** Namely, in the latest novel she looks about 22-25, but is actually 63, while her father and husband, both centenarians, look like they're in their early forties. At the same time her mother, at the same age, but an offworlder with a more advanced prolong, looks early to mid-thirties.
** When one considers that it has been mentioned that all naval personnel have contraceptives (usually implanted) as a requirement of serving in the field, almost all navies have mixed-sex crews, and that most are pretty liberal when it comes to what crew do off duty...not mentioning that the people cheerfully having sex look like pubescent kids and young teens (not to mention the rapes inflicted on female prisoners in ''The Honor of the Queen''), not mentioning it much is probably the better part of discretion.
* Brian Jacques' ''Castaways of the Flying Dutchman'': the heroes are a boy and his dog who were given eternal life for being the only good souls aboard the Flying Dutchman when it was cursed. Ben, the boy, has effectively been fourteen since the year 1620.
* The title characters in Creator/DianaWynneJones's ''Literature/TheHomewardBounders'' effectively do not age and are invulnerable. Jamie Hamilton, the youngest of them, became a Homeward Bounder at twelve, and appears no more than a year older as he begins to narrate the book, [[spoiler: but as he says, "You wouldn't believe how old I am."]] He eventually realises that he's met [[spoiler: his little sister's grandchildren, who are older than he is.]]
* The 'family' in Creator/DianaWynneJones's ''Literature/ArchersGoon'' gives birth order [[spoiler: and the fact that by the time the youngest was born the older four were already grown and flown, but not ages. However, they all look various forms of young, and Archer mentions offhandedly that 'my family don't age at the rate you people do.' Awful at her most perceptive also accuses Dillian of being thousands of years old, but this seems unlikely given the aging bizzarrities provoked by Venturus and Hathaway's time-travel experiments. Never made clear exactly what they are, since they're not from Earth or Outer Space and seem to be wildly magic with technology very handy and even necessary in the application thereof.]] Uhm...don't look behind this spoiler tag if you might want to read the book. Seriously, don't, even if it's a habit. It'll ruin the whole point. Jones does a lot of [[TheReveal reveals]] and twists as policy. The number she put in the original ''Howl's Moving Castle'' was impressive.
* In Creator/ElizabethMoon's ''Literature/FamiliasRegnant'' series, one of the major plot drivers is "rejuv", which reverses aging and brings you back to a biological 25 or 30 years old. You then age normally, but can do it again when you start feeling old. This causes no end of problems, including having successful parents continue to run companies instead of turning them over to the next generation, having the military be loaded with senior sergeants and admirals instead of having them retire to make way for the next generation, etc. This means that the current generation of people will never take over responsibility, since their 30 year old parents are doing fine. Further, this is scaring the heck out of neighboring groups who fear the resultant population explosion of perpetual 30 year olds, with the attendant pressure to take over the planets of the neighboring groups.
* Creator/LarryNiven:
** In his ''Literature/KnownSpace'' stories, every human in the universe above the age of 40 takes a longevity drug called Boosterspice as a matter of course. This has affected humanity's attitudes and prejudices to the point that when hero Louis Wu (himself 250 years old in the body of a 20 year old) meets a human being who hasn't taken Boosterspice (and thus is "suffering" from wrinkles, gray hair, a missing tooth or two, and the scars one normally finds on a person of 40+ ), he thinks the other man is a member of a human-like alien species.
** Jerome Corbell, the hero of ''A World Out Of Time'' ''starts'' the story waking up after spending 220 years in suspended animation. By the end of the novel, because of time-dilation caused by a close encounter with a black hole, he's at least five billion years old.
* In the NightHuntress books, vampires do not age after being turned. So, Bones is around 200 years old and looks like he is in his thirties (he was 24 when turned, but people aged more quickly in his day), and Mencheres is around ''4,500'' and looks even younger than Bones.
* In ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'', we have the Abbot of the History Monks, who through the process of advanced reincarnation wound up in the body of a young baby -- with most of his knowledge intact. Hard to say precisely how old he is, if he's gone around a few times like that. Of course, the History Monks play with time anyway, so...
** On the other hand, Lu-Tze the Sweeper never bothered with reincarnation and is still quite spry for someone over 800 years old.
*** Most history monks don't bother with reincarnation. It's the ''Abbot'' who can't get the hang of "circular aging"...
** These exact words are used of High Priest Dios in ''Discworld/{{Pyramids}}'' when he claims to be seven thousand years old. He's really [[spoiler: ''infinite'' years old, having lived the same seven thousand years in a perpetual loop]].
* Dead Boy from the ''Literature/{{Nightside}}'' books looks seventeen but is chronologically in his 40s or 50s.
* In the story ''Child of All Ages'', the protagonist, having lived several hundred years as a permanent child, is quite happy to continue life. Even if she is stuck as a child. She does bemoan the fact that modern society makes it pretty hard to be independent as a child, but she still can't wait to see what life brings next.
* In Creatpr/JohnRingo's ''Literature/CouncilWars'' series, Bast the Wood Elf is over a thousand years old but looks 14. A very well developed 14 mind you, if the cover art is anything to go by.
* Durzo Blint of ''Literature/TheNightAngelTrilogy'' by Brent Weeks [[spoiler:fits this rather well by actually being seven hundred years old.]]
* [[TheGunslinger Roland Deschain]] of Creator/StephenKing's ''Franchise/TheDarkTower'' series turns out to be ReallySevenHundredYearsOld due to the space time continuum of his world being ripped apart. He managed to survive the destruction of his entire civilization.
** It's actually a bit unclear whether or not this trope truly applies to Roland. Although the books seem to imply that he has really been kicking around for centuries, the companion guidebook ''The Road to the Dark Tower'' suggests that due to the breakdown of spacetime, though he was born hundreds of years ago, Roland has actually lived a subjectively normal lifespan.
*** However he did pull a major Rip Van Winkle when he slept long enough for Marten to go from alive and kicking to a skeleton fragile enough to turn into dust at the slightest touch.
*** King later [[{{Retcon}} revised]] this to be a fake skeleton placed there to make him think he'd slept that long.
* Averted by [[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Miles Vorkosigan]], who's rumored to look seventeen because he's an old man who's undergone high-tech rejuvenation therapy. He's actually 17.
** Note that it's ''possible'' to have this played straight in that universe, but the most practical way for this is [[{{Squick}} brain transplant]].
* ''LetTheRightOneIn'', a Swedish horror novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist, features Eli, a vampire that was 12 years old when transformed. Eli can't remember exactly how long it's been, but it's implied to be around 200 years.
* The Piper's Children from ''Literature/KeysToTheKingdom''. They were brought to the House by the Piper, and in the House one doesn't age. They've been stuck as kids for several hundred years.
** Don't forget pretty much every House Denizen [[spoiler: before the remake of the multiverse]] has been around for thousands of years.
* JohnCarterOfMars has been thirty for as long as he can remember, and is stated to have dandled the unnamed narrator's grandfather on his knee when said grandfather was an infant. The nature of his immortality is never explained.
** Asides from that, the average lifespan for a Barsoomian is 1,000 years, and they don't start looking old until they start hitting the end of their life.
*** There are also a few instances of people lasting even longer than that due to suspended animation or body-hijacking.
* in ''[[TheSecretsOfTheImmortalNicholasFlamel The Alchemyst]]'', Nicolas Flamel is known to be 678, and Dee is over 400, but it doesn't stop there. Although the date is not given, Scathach is 2,000+, and Morrigan is old enough to have been an ancient egyptian god, while Hekate is supposedly [[TimeAbyss as old as time itself]].
** Don't forget Cernunnos, [[UpToEleven who's even older than Hekate.]]
* Zoe Nightshade from ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians''. In fact, any of the Hunters who have been members for a long time. Artemis herself prefers to appear as a 12-year-old girl when she's traveling with them. And then there are the rest of the gods and mythological characters...
* Har, the wolf-king of Osterland, and [[spoiler: Deth, the High One's harpist]] in ''Literature/TheRiddleMasterTrilogy'' by Creator/PatriciaAMcKillip.
* Many of Creator/RobertAHeinlein's reoccurring characters are members of the Howard Families, and blessed with natural longevity on the order of a couple hundred years, but none more so than Lazarus Long. By his last appearance Lazarus is several ''thousand'' years old, though he appears to be in his thirties due to both being a Howard and future medicine. At one point someone tells him he cannot die when he seems to be mortally wounded. The reader is left to decide whether that is the plea of a distraught spouse or a prescient statement.
** Long claims he met [[SharedUniverse another Heinlein character]], a doctor who had invented a machine that could predict when you'd die, and got no answer. It is implied but not made explicit that Lazarus would live forever; the doctor's machine might also have indicated Lazarus' death during ''World War I'' thanks to TimeTravel.
* The White and the Voices of TrudiCanavan's ''Literature/{{The Age of the Five}}'' trilogy are frozen at the ages they were chosen by their respective gods. The Wilds are also an example, as the second youngest immortal [[spoiler: Mirar]] appears to be in his 40s, despite being at least 1000 years old. [[spoiler: The Gull]] is an even better example: he's the oldest surviving immortal in the world despite appearing to be no more than seven or eight years old.
* Creator/NealStephenson has:
** In ''Literature/{{Anathem}}'', [[spoiler:Fraa Jad]] offhandedly makes it known that he is at least several hundred - and possibly several thousand - years old.
** Enoch Root, who appears in both the ''Literature/TheBaroqueCycle'' and ''Literature/{{Cryptonomicon}}'', despite the combined storyline spanning about 300 or 400 years.
* In ''Literature/SewerGasAndElectric'', Kite is a former SweetPollyOliver veteran of the American Civil War ... and is still alive, and fairly healthy, in the early 21st century. No magic, super-science, or non-human blood involved: she's just a statistical outlier for lifespan. Most people assume she's in her nineties, and nuts.
* In Literature/PerryRhodan most of the main cast is a bit older than they look. Perry Rhodan was born in 1936 and now it is 5050. He stopped aging when he was 39. Atlan da Gonozal was born 8044 bc, but he did sleep about 10,000 years while waiting for the earthlings to invent spacetravel.
* The Canes, a whole race of werewolves in ''Literature/CodexAlera'', can live up to 1000 years and still have the appearance/strength associated with youth.
* In the ''MortalInstruments'' series Magnus Bane is said to look like he stopped aging at age 19, but is thought to be over 300 years old. in the book City Of Glass it is revealed when he is having an argument with Alec Lightwood that he is in fact MUCH older than previously thought.
-->'''Magnus''': I'm seven hundred years old, Alexander. I know when something isn't going to work. You won't even admit I exist to your parents.
-->'''Alec''': You're ''seven hundred years old?''
-->'''Magnus''': Well, eight hundred. But I don't look it. Anyway, you're missing the point.
* In ''Literature/HarryPotter'', witches and wizards can live quite a while past their first century: Dumbledore is 116 years old and still {{Badass}} enough to take on [[BigBad Lord Voldemort]], and during Harry's fifth-year examinations there's a witch who lived long enough to give ''Dumbledore'' his exams (exact age isn't stated, but she would presumably be about 150).
** And of course there's Nicholas Flamel. Though never seen, he is stated to be over 600 years old. (Although this is specifically because he can make the Philosopher's Stone, unlike most people).
* In Creator/LFrankBaum's ''QueenZixiOfIx'' -- Queen Zixi of Ix. Except that she can see her real age in her reflection.
* In Creator/DavidWeber's Literature/EmpireFromTheAshes, the Imperial military uses cybernetic enhancements which have a side effect of increasing the recipient's lifespan to an average of 600 or so years. [[spoiler: Horus and the original crew of the ''Dahak'' are chronologically over 50,000 years old, counting time spent in stasis.]]
* The wizard Nevyn of the ''{{Literature/Deverry}}'' novels swore an oath in his youth that he would not rest until he had set right the mistakes that resulted in the deaths of three of his friends. The gods made him keep his oath, he lived to be about 450. This actually turns out to be good for his official profession: He makes and sells medicine for a living, and a doctor who appears to be roughly seventy (in a society where fifty is old) and is still in perfect health would presumably be very good at maintaining his (and by extension, his customer's) health.
* The ''Literature/GalacticMilieu'' had technology that allowed people to rejuvenate to a younger age. Thanks to a certain gene complex, most members of the Remillard family rejuvenated automatically, leaving most of them looking like twenty or thirty somethings indefinitely. Rogi (The oldest member of the family [[spoiler: not counting Mark as Atoning Unifex]]) still looked like he was in his early fifties at 150.
* In the ''{{Starfire}}'' series of novels, a few individuals are lucky enough to be selected for the very expensive "Antigerone" treatment. They'll look and feel like they're still in their prime at age 60, and can live for over two centuries.
* Played with Marianne Engel in ''Literature/TheGargoyle''. She claims to be this, but given her [[MadArtist extremely irrational behavior]], the narrator is convinced that she's just crazy. Not that it stops him from falling in love with her.
* In OctaviaButler's ''Literature/{{Fledgling}}'', Shori is a 53 year old vampire (or Ina, as they call themselves) in the body of a 10 year old, because Ina age slower than humans. This leads to some squick, due to the HemoErotic tendencies of the Ina, which means that Shori's 23-year-old human symbiont is having sex with a 10-year-old.
* In ''Literature/TheExcaliburAlternative'' the alien captors infuse the English with technology to make them age slower. Granted, they also used "sleep" to help.
* In Kevin Hearne's ''IronDruidChronicles'' the druid Atticus O'Sullivan tells people that he is twenty one. People naturally assume that he means years rather than centuries. He uses a magical potion to maintain a youthful appearance but he predates Christianity. The vampire Leif is around a thousand years old and the local warevolves have members a few centuries old. The various gods and demi-gods can be virtually immortal.
* The witches in ''Literature/HisDarkMaterials''. Serafina Pekkala appears to be a young woman, but is at least three hundred years old.
* The wandering storyteller Norna-Gest of the Old Norse "Literature/TaleOfNornaGest" reveals himself as a three-hundred years old immortal.
* In the Creator/KimNewman ''Literature/DarkFuture'' novels, Elder Nguyen Seth, The Summoner. In ''Demon Download'' it's stated that Seth first came into contact with Roger Duroc's family during the Albigension Crusade. That took place in the 13th century, and it's hinted by Seth that he's ''much'' older.
--> ''"I remember a hundred years ago as if it were the last minute. A thousand, two thousand, ten thousand years ago."''
--->-- '''Elder Seth''', ''Comeback Tour''
* Just about everyone in Pentexore in ''Literature/DirgeForPresterJohn'' by way of the FountainOfYouth.
* In Literature/TalesOfKolmar, the king of the dragons is a thousand years old. When he's [[HumanityEnsues turned into a human]] he looks young, and gradually starts to loosen up and act less formally, but from time to time something happens that makes the weight of his years seem to come back, most evident in his eyes. A middle-aged human character once absently refers to him as "son" and he then affectionately refers to her as "daughter", saying that in the span of his lifetime she had been born only yesterday.
* In ''Literature/TheYearOfRogueDragons'', this applies to all dragons in human form.
* In Literature/{{Phenomena}} is Sha-ra whom look like to be in his mid 50s or early 70s is really 413 years old, and let's not bring up Millian...
* Due to the strain that their magic places upon their bodies, the Immortals in ''Literature/TheExtraordinaires'' prefer to inhabit the bodies of children.
* The vampires in Poppy Z. Brite's Literature/LostSouls play this straight ''and'' subvert it a little. While ageless, its hinted at in the book that due to their violent lifestyles, someone or something tends to kill them sooner or later. Christian, the oldest vampire we meet in the book, is "only" a few hundred years old. Zillah is 100 years old, and Molokai and Twigg a bit younger than him.
* In ''Literature/TheTruthOfRockAndRoll'', Johnny first believes The Leader Of The Pack to be the AnthropomorphicPersonification of "all the rebels in black leather jackets in all the rock songs ever made", which would actually make him ''younger'' than he looks, since the story is set in the early Sixties. However, Johnny quickly realizes that the Leader is actually "every night-riding outlaw who ever rode a black horse through a song", which makes him this trope.
* Wanderer from ''Literature/TheHost'' claims to be thousands of Earth years old, though she admits that she's lost count of her real age. Plus, she's spent a large chunk of her life in suspended animation. Her species doesn't age, though it makes no difference to their apparent age -- they survive by taking host bodies, so they look only as old as their hosts.
* In ''Way Station'', the protagonist fought in the American Civil War, and looks only middle-aged in the 1960s. This is because as long as he's inside the Station, he doesn't age.
* Alexander Velitzyn, main character of J. M. Siderova's ''The Age of Ice is frozen in suspended animation during the Russian-British expedition in search of the Northwest Passage in 1785 and after being revived stays looking in his mid forties for over two centuries.
* In the ''Literature/HyperionCantos'', the poet Martin Silenus is more than 700 years old at the beginning of the books, which makes him one of the few Old Earth survivors and one of the oldest people in the Retz. He managed to live that long partly because he spend nearly 300 years in stasis in a sub-lightspeed spaceship, but mostly because he uses and abuses the anti-aging "Poulsen" treatment, which is readily available in the Retz (although very expensive) but rarely used at such extent.
** In ''Literature/Endymion'', which take places 272 years after the original books' events, [[spoiler:Martin Silenus is ''still alive'', and although it is never stated as a fact, he is almost certainly the oldest human being in the universe.]]
* In Steven Brust's {{Dragaera}} novels, the average Dragaeran lifespan is two to three thousand years. Many Dragaerans believe Sethra Lavode to be ten times that old. In truth, she's [[spoiler:somewhere around two hundred fifty thousand years old.]]
* Literature/FirstLight: A dog version. The Chickchu dogs which were raised and bred in Gracehope live as long as their owners, who got them as kids.
* in the ''Literaure/UkiahOregon'' series Ukiah/Atticus/[[spoiler: Magic Boy]] are really ~300 years old, while Rennie Shaw and several other Pack members are well into their second century.

* ''TheMunsters'': Grandpa Munster was 597 years old when the series premiered in 1964; daughter Lily was 137 while Herman Munster was 152 years old. By comparison, Marilyn was in her 20s and Eddie was 10 during the series' first season.
** ''The Munsters Today'' took it a step further by retconning Herman and Lily as being married for 300 years instead of 100.
* ''IDreamOfJeannie'': Although she looks like a 30-year-old babelicious blonde, Jeannie is at least 2,000 years old (thanks to being trapped in a bottle by the Blue Djinn in retaliation for rejecting his marriage proposal).
** Jeannie is one of the few examples of this trope where an actual date of birth is known: April 1st, 64 BC. The date was decided by a contest run by NBC ("Guess Jeannie's Birthday") and revealed in a four-part story arc.
* ''Series/{{Bewitched}}'': Samantha is at least 400 years old, although she appears to be about 30.
* In ''Franchise/PowerRangers'', count on any alien, even HumanAliens, to number their ages in at least four digits. This is especially true for any mysterious children you run into. [[spoiler: They tend to be the spirits of ancient HumongousMecha.]]
* On ''Series/WonderWoman'', Steve Trevor comments, "You can't be more than 23 or 24," and WW responds, "I will be 2,527 years old on my next birthday." He doesn't believe her.
* ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'': Witches seem to age incredibly slowly. Hilda and Zelda claim to be somewhere in the 500-700 age range, but both actresses were in their mid-30's.
* In the ''Series/StargateSG1'' episode "The Fourth Horseman", a love interest of Samantha Carter's retakes bodily form as a boy to be able to retain his ascended memories. Even though the character is much older than his physical age, Carter gets weirded out when he speaks of his love for her and the relationship ends.
** Another example are the Goa'uld human hosts themselves. While the Goa'uld [[PuppeteerParasite symbiotes]] can switch host bodies at will, most of them prefer to use a single host (allowing them to maintain a consistent appearance for their worshipers), along with AppliedPhlebotinum to keep them young and healthy for centuries. Apophis appears to be in his twenties, and Ra looked like a young teenager, though both their human hosts were originally abducted from ancient Egypt. As seen when Apophis's host temporarily regained control of his body, the [[AndIMustScream mental torment of being turned into a living puppet]] for millennia far outweighs the benefit of eternal youth and beauty.
** To clarify, Goa'uld hosts retain their mental faculties when playing host - Goa'uld, if they wish, can allow a host to control the body and such. Aside from the good Tok'ra, though, they don't, [[AndIMustScream meaning all a host can do is watch helplessly from inside their body]].
*** Also note, that while the symbiote does give extended life, without the AppliedPhlebotinum the symbiotes cannot sustain the bodies if they have inhabited said body for thousands of years. A typical Tok'ra host lasts about 200 years, after which the host typically dies and the symbiote has to find a new host (frequently someone suffering from an incurable disease, such as Sam Carter's cancer-ridden dad). A Goa'uld with the aid of the Sarcophagus can maintain a host for vastly longer, but even that has limits, as demonstrated by [[spoiler:Lord Yu, the oldest Goa'uld]].
*** Lt. Colonel John Sheppard has a knack for getting himself aged up. For instance, he gets stuck in a stasis pod for 700 years, but doesn't look a day older.
* In ''Series/StargateAtlantis'', it's implied that Todd the Wraith is at least ten ''thousand'' years old. Even considering that Wraith hibernate for long periods, he's very old for a Wraith, and remembers firsthand the war with the Ancients.
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'':
** Parodied where 1,120-year-old ex-demon Anya is unable to buy a beer in a bar, since she doesn't have the ID to prove it.
** And of course, vampires like Angel, Drusilla, and Spike are hundreds of years old but still look like sexy 20-somethings.
** Same goes for Glory, the BigBad of Season 5.
** And Dawn existed as the Key for millennia before becoming a 14-year-old human at the beginning of season 5.
** The Mayor is over a hundred years old but hasn't aged a day since the 19th century.
** Parodied in a minor vampire minion who claims he was at the Crucifixion. According to Spike if every vampire he'd heard make that claim was actually there "it would have been like Woodstalk".
* The Conduit, Mesektet, in ''Series/{{Angel}}'' liked to take the form of a ten year-old little girl, but was actually an ancient and evil being and one of the incarnations of Ra.
* Jadzia Dax (and her successor Ezri Dax) on ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' is an interesting case because, due to the symbiotic nature of her species she is both in her late 20s and hundreds of years old.
** Indeed, Sisko's teenage son Jake is quite pleased when urbane Jadzia turns into a ditzy twenty-something.
--->'''Jake Sisko:''' She is so cute.\\
'''Benjamin Sisko:''' She is also about 300 years too old for you.
* Guinan of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' is at least 500 years old. At one point, Data's transported to the 19th century, where he spots Guinan having a conversation with MarkTwain at a dinner party. He assumes she was somehow sent back in time as well, only to quickly learn that this is actually her 19th century self. In the episode ''Rascals'', set in 2369, she says her father is 700.
** Tolian Soran, a member of the same race as Guinan and infamously the man to kill James T Kirk, was described as being "over 200 years old" by Dr Crusher (although interestingly he looked older than Guinan).
* At the end of the famous episode of ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' "Arena" (the one with the [[PeopleInRubberSuits Rubber Suit]] monster Gorn), the Metrons are revealed to be HumanAliens.
-->'''Kirk:''' You're a Metron?\\
'''Metron:''' Does my appearance surprise you, Captain?\\
'''Kirk:''' You seem more like a boy.\\
'''Metron:''' I am approximately 1,500 of your Earth years old.
** Also in ''Miri''. She's a prepubescent girl, but about 300 years old.
--->'''Janice Rand:''' Miri... she really loved you, you know?\\
'''Capt. Kirk:''' Yes.\\
'''Janice:'''...\\
'''Capt. Kirk:''' I never get involved with older women, Yeoman.
* Hinted on ''Series/ThirtyRock'' with Kenneth multiple times. One episode had a flash-forward to his tombstone, with a branch covering most of his date of birth. It ''looks like'' the date is 17--.
--->'''Kenneth:''' I've had that bird for over sixty years!
* On ''Series/ThirdRockFromTheSun'', "teenager" Tommy Solomon was actually the senior member of the alien team. Of course, his real age (and that of the rest of the family) was never revealed, so there is no way of knowing how much older Tommy was.
* ''Series/TheTwilightZone'' episode "Long Live Walter Jameson" had a college professor of about 45, preparing to marry the roughly 30 year-old daughter of another professor, set in the then-contemporary world of the early 1960s; what we discover is that [[spoiler:he took a treatment which caused him to stop aging when he was 45, from an alchemist back around the time of Julius Caesar, and has been alive for over a thousand years.]]
* Lorien in ''Series/BabylonFive'' looks to be an elderly man (okay, okay... an elderly ''alien'' man) in his 60s or 70s, but he was the first being in the galaxy to achieve sentience. Given how old some of the races that look up to him are, he's very, very old indeed.
-->'''Sheridan''': How long have you been here?\\
'''Lorien''': A long time. So long -- I was old when the molecules of your world joined and called themselves land and sea and fish and man.\\
'''Sheridan''': You're one of the first ones.\\
'''Lorien''': No -- not one of the first ones. I ''am'' the first one.
** Even ordinary humans in ''B5'' may be a mild example of this trope, as the average human lifespan is ~100 years. Presumably the healthier ones would live decades longer than that.
* The Doctor in ''Series/DoctorWho'' looks to be anywhere from his early twenties to his sixties depending on his [[TheNthDoctor regeneration]], but is over a thousand. Stated onscreen as 1200 as of 2012, though {{Fanon}} maintains that it's been well into the quadruple digits long before that, with his age ''decreased'' from 953 to 900 in 2005. It's often assumed he's lying about his age. Creator/StevenMoffat [[WordOfGod has said]] that the Doctor doesn't ''actually'' know his true age.
** There are other theories about his age.http://doctorwhotv.co.uk/who-mysteries-the-doctors-real-age-37396.htm
** To quote the Fourth Doctor in the 1976 story "The Stones of Blood" - "I've known hundreds of people who've lived for hundreds of years!"
** Jack Harkness appears to be in his early 40s but is, as of the series 2 finale of ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'', ''well'' over 2,000 years old. And if his comment about the Face of Boe is accurate, he lives for well over a few billion years. And even if not, the Face of Boe is referenced in the year 200,000 and 200,100 and dies in 5,000,000,053.
** The Weeping Angels (in 2007 and the 52nd century), Carrionites (in 1599) and {{Satan}} himself, we think, (circa the 43rd century) go as far back as the early years of the Universe. Prior to leaving the universe from the fires of the Last Great Time War (according to a ''Doctor Who'' Annual), the Eternals were, well, eternal. Though the case with Satan is that he existed in the previous universe before it was destroyed and our universe was created in it's place. Which is why the Tardis couldn't decipher the writing on the walls because it was "before our universe's time stream existed"
** ''Doctor Who'' has a lot of this. Ood Sigma from "Planet of the Ood" has barely aged a day a century on in ''The End of Time''. In series 5's "The Beast Below" the Star Whale, carrying the United Kingdom for 200 years, is described by Amy as "very old and very kind", much like someone else. Due to slowing down her biological systems, Queen Elizabeth X of the UK is 300 years old in the same episode (and lives at least another 2,000). Despite their mayfly-like lifespan in their normal states, if a member of the Family of Blood took the lifespan of a Time Lord, he could live as long (it's unknown if regeneration ability comes with it, or if they can take the lifespan of other creatures.)
** In the series five finale [[spoiler:Rory]] waits by the Pandorica guarding it for over ''eighteen hundred'' years thanks to being a [[spoiler:plastic Nestene duplicate with Rory's memories]]. Although history gets repaired in the end, [[spoiler:human Rory]] retains fragments of [[spoiler:Nestene Rory]]'s memories so in some ways he's older than the Doctor. What's more impressive is that despite all that time spent guarding it he doesn't get a single scratch. Nor is he driven insane like the Doctor warned he would.
** There's also Professor Chronotis, an apparently elderly Cambridge don, from the unaired-and-incomplete Tom Baker-era episode ''Shada'', who's been around in Cambridge for as long as anyone can remember- because secretly he's a Time Lord. This being apparently one single regeneration -- Time Lords age slowly -- seeing as nobody cared to notice anything unusual.
* ''Series/{{Highlander}}'' featured two episodes about an immortal with the appearance of a 10-year-old. (Immortals stop aging whenever they are "killed" for the first time.) In his first appearance he claimed to have been immortal for only four years, but it turned out he was Really Eight Hundred Years Old and engaged in [[TheFarmerAndTheViper a repeated con job to gain other immortals' trust and take their heads]]. (This was his way of making up for combat disadvantage.)
** Of course almost every Immortal in ''Highlander'' follows the trope, because you just can't go around telling people you were born in 1592 when you look 30. If anything, the trope is sometimes ''reversed'' with some pretending they're older than they really are (eg, the man who pretends to be Methos).
* ''{{Sanctuary}}'': Helen Magnus used to date Jack the Ripper; she's 157 years old at the start of the series. For that matter, Tesla, Watson, and Jack the Ripper are also all older than they look for various reasons. The only member of the Five that isn't (The Invisible Man) is dead with a grown up granddaughter. Magnus' father is even older, and probably in his 180s-190s or so.
** In the 2011 season, Magnus goes back in time to the 19th century to stop a time-traveler from attempting to change the timeline. She succeeds, but has no way to return to present day other than simply going off to live in seclusion (so as not to mess up "history" herself), finally rejoining her friends when 2011 rolls around again. At the start of the next episode, she's *another* 123 years older (now about 280).
** Even Griffin (the Invisible Man) is revealed to have stopped aging thanks to the SuperSerum, as we see him during the WorldWarTwo flashback episode. It's implied that his death wasn't natural, as that's the only way to explain his absence in the 21st century.
* Richard Alpert from ''Series/{{Lost}}'' looks to be a normal guy in his 30s or 40s. Until in season five [[spoiler:we see flashbacks and jumps through time from the 1950s through the 1990s where he looks exactly the same as he does in 2004. Season 6's "Ab Aeterno" states his age as about 170 in 2007, having made landfall on board the ''Black Rock'' in 1867.]]
** Considering the dresses during their WholeEpisodeFlashback, Jacob and The Man In Black [[spoiler: aka the smoke monster]] were born during the Roman Age, making them about 2000 years old. Though it's later revealed that the Man in Black is actually a shapeshifter taking on the form of his long-dead body (among others, [[spoiler: including Locke]]). God knows how old their adopted mother, who grants the immortality power to the brothers (and indirectly, Richard), was at that time.
* Naboo from ''TheMightyBoosh'' looks and acts like a teenager, but was apparently born in the 16th century, making him at least 400 years old.
* The vast majority of the non-human characters in ''Series/KamenRiderKiva'' fit this trope. Ramon is a particularly egregious example, since he looks no older than 14 (the others are all played by actors in their 20s or 30s), and he even says to Yuri, "I'm 105 years old." [[CassandraTruth She doesn't believe him.]]
** ''Series/KamenRiderOOO'' has the five Greeed (Ankh, Kazari, Uva, Mezool and Gamel) all of whom are over 800 years old. Their human forms all look early to mid-20s, except for Mezool, who resembles a pre-teen girl. Later, [[spoiler: the "lost" Ankh adopts the human form of a small child.]]
* On ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}'', [[spoiler:Galen Tyrol, Sam Anders, Tory Foster, Saul Tigh, and Ellen Tigh]] are really two thousand years old, though this is because of travelling on a relativistic ship. Even without that, they are OlderThanTheyLook, because their ship finished its journey at a time when Bill Adama was a teenager.
* Some of the vampires in ''Series/BeingHuman'' fit this; Mitchell is over a century old, but looks mid-20s. His sire, Herrick, is even older, but looks middle-aged. Hal is considered one of the Old Ones and is over 500 years old but looks to be in his 30s.
* ''TheLeagueOfGentlemen'' strongly implies this in the case of Papa Lazarou, who shows up in a flashback set about 30 years earlier, and he looks exactly the same.
* There was an episode of ''{{Smallville}}'' where a seemingly middle-aged mechanic turns out to be Dax-Ur, a Kryptonian who moved to Earth around the beginning of the 20th century.
** There was another where a student at the school is revealed to be over a hundred years old and living off the life force of others.
* This was the basis for a [[ThePlan ploy]] by the IMF on ''MissionImpossible''. They convinced a bad guy that they had access to a fountain whose water had miraculous healing powers, including keeping people perpetually young. As part of their plan, he befriends [[FemmeFatale Casey]], then finds evidence that she is over a hundred years old.
* While most [=GELFs=] on ''Series/RedDwarf'' are assumed to be descendants of the genetically engineered creatures created 3 million years ago, it seems likely that the super soldier Polymorph from the episode of the same name had been [[SealedEvilInACan sealed away]] by humans for a very, very long time before wreaking havok on board the ''Dwarf''.
* In ''Series/ChourikiSentaiOhranger'', Kingranger is mentioned to have been around more than 600 ''million'' years ago yet looks like an eleven or twelve-year-old boy. At least partly explained by the fact that he has been in suspended animation for some time.
** ''Series/HyakujuuSentaiGaoranger'''s Shirogane is 1062 years old and looks to be around 25.
** In ''Series/MahouSentaiMagiranger'', Heavenly Saints Hikaru and Rin are implied to be hundreds of years old but appear to be in their mid-20s and late teens respectively.
* John Amsterdam, from ''Series/NewAmsterdam'' is four centuries old. One episode shows him regularly attend AA meetings. When introducing himself, he's truthful about how long he's been sober (about 50 years). When a guy assumes he's making fun of them, John just replies that he looks young for his age (which is true).
* Teenager Lexi on ''Series/TheVampireDiaries'' is actually 300. Whodathunkit?
** And Katherine is about 536, while Pearl is at least 570.
* The vampires on ''Series/TrueBlood'' but most notably, Russell who is supposed to be 3000 years old, but only looks like he's in his mid-forties and Godric, who at 2000, looked about 18.
** The maenad Maryann is ancient, supposedly predating ancient Greece, which would put her at over 4000. She, however, looks to be in her forties, and looked the same over a decade before entering the series.
* H.G Wells in {{Warehouse 13}} , Thanks to being bronzed for 110 years, is estimated to be 140 something years old despite looking like being in early 30s or late 20s.
* ''Series/{{Alphas}}'' has Stanton Parish, an Alpha whose history has been traced as far back as the US Civil War. It has not been revealed yet how old he really is.
* On ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' many of the supernatural beings who appear human can be quite old
** Angels are older than humanity and need a human vessel while on Earth
** Demons are human souls that were sent to hell and can be very old when they return to Earth and posses a person. Lilith became the first demon shortly after the Fall.
** Death appears as an older gentleman but is so old that he could predate God. (He has stated that he doesn't know which of them is older.)
** The Leviathans are even older than angels.
** Many ancient deities and monsters survived to the modern age by appearing as normal humans.
** Powerful witches can live for centuries. The Starks have had marital spats since at least the 15th century.
** Due to time flowing faster in Hell we really do not know how much time Sam actually spent there. Dean spent around 40 years in Hell. Their bodies were recreated at their correct age when they returned to Earth so physically they have not aged.
*** Adam, the youngest brother,[[spoiler: has been in Hell since the end of the 5th season (three years ago so far.) That makes him nearly 400 years old.]]
* In ''WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'', Juliet, being a vampire, looks around 16 but is actually over 9500, and her parents look like they're in their 40's. Mason also looks like a teenager, but is older than the United States of America (no exact age is ever given). Rudy Tootie looks around 47, but is over 2000-and he's spent all that time ''mocking Prof. Crumbs's age''.
* Nick and the other vampires of ForeverKnight.
* Parodied on Canadian teen sitcom ''Series/MrYoung'', where this is Mrs. Byrne's whole joke. They've never stated her exact age but it's clear that she's very, very old. Maybe the best example is in the spring break special, where she says she misses the days when you didn't have to put on sunscreen because ''there was no sun'', and also mentions that she never thought she'd crawl back into the ocean.
* As in other media, the vampires in ''{{Moonlight}}'' stop aging when turned. Mick is pushing 90 but looks about 30 (he is fairly young for a vampire). His best friend Josef is 400 years old... but looks about 25 (the original pilot had him be much older in appearance in order to be able to hand out "sagely" advice). In one episode, we meet a teen vampire with a permanent case of bad acne... who is over 200 years old. Then there's Josef's girlfriend, who begged him to turn her. The attempt was only partially successful. She fell into a coma and remains on life support to this day, but doesn't look a day older. This actually becomes a point in the episode "B.C.", where a drug made from vampires makes humans experience the rush of being a vampire. The 700-year old vampire who looks like a model offers a taste to Beth, pointing out that she'll soon start to lose her youthful beauty.
* In the DistantFinale of {{Series/Merlin}}, Merlin looks like he's in his 80s, but is probably in his 800s. And his age could just be a magical disguise anyway.
* TheRedGreenShow gives us the off-screen Old Man Sedjwick. While his age is never disclosed, he has fought in WWI and multiple other historical battles. At one point during a brewery explosion he got up and proclaimed "I am Death, Destroyer of Worlds."
** His son is quite old as well.
--> '''Harold:''' "Wow, how old is he?"
--> '''Red:''' "I don't know, Harold. Our best guess is about 85."
--> '''Harold:''' "Wow, how old's his son?"
--> '''Red:''' "I'm talking 'bout his son."
** More astonishingly, his ''parents'' are still alive and well. Known as Old Lady Sedjwick and Dead Man Walking Sedjwick, his mother evidently has a tattoo that reads 'George Washington Slept Here'.
* The heroine of ''Series/FreeSpirit'', a MagicalNanny named Winnie Goodwin, was born in 1665, making her 324 when the show begins. Her actress, Corinne Bohrer, was only in her thirties.
* At the end of ''Film/TheStoneTape'' the computer calculations show that whatever LivingMemory was recorded there was done 7000 years ago. The leader of the research team derides this as insane and [[TheseAreThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow quickly shreds the printout]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Multiple Media]]
* Most ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' characters are 100 000 years old, yet many of them are seen acting like kids. In the case of the Matoran Universe races, this makes some sense, since they were created that way and most of them cannot age, at least normally. Outside that universe, where beings are born fully organic, this comes off as weird. Especially Gresh, a rookie fighter who acts like a teenager, despite being over 100 000 years old.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music]]
* [[Music/InsaneClownPosse Violent J]] in "I Want My Shit".
* Fans of NeilYoung sometimes joke that he is this. In 2002 ''Blender'', a music review magazine associated with ''Maxim'', published a photo of him looking OlderThanDirt with the caption [[Franchise/StarWars "When 900 years old you reach, look as good you will not!"]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Myths, Legends and Religion]]
* The legend of the "Wandering Jew" claims that a certain Ahasver was cursed for laughing at {{Jesus}} on his way to Golgotha, so that he cannot die until Jesus' Second Coming. Supposedly this Ahasver has been WalkingTheEarth for centuries and never looks any older than he was at Christ's Crucifixion.
* Changeling folklore often includes the changeling (who looks like a baby or small child) revealing that it's actually several hundred years old or 'as old as Wester Wood'.
* Pick a deity. Any deity. Unless special circumstances require it they will ''always'' appear in a form that is at least recognisably human, if not necessarily young, despite ages being anywhere from centuries to as old as the universe, or ''even older''.
* Some of the Akkadian texts on Mesopotamian kings have said kings living for 25,000 years ''and up.''
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Pinball]]
* Matra Magna in Creator/{{Capcom}}'s ''Pinball/PinballMagic''. She looks like a twentysomething young woman, but will turn to a withered skeleton if you can defeat her.

[[folder:Plants and Animals]]
* [[http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2008/04/080414-oldest-tree.html This tree]] in Sweden may look like a mere sapling, but the above-ground portion is just the latest offshoot of a root system that has been growing continuously since the end of the last Ice Age.
** While not ''quite'' that extreme, Olive trees are well known for that. While the tree itself might die, the root system will live on and produce several trees. Root systems being thousands of years old are not rare, especially in parts of the Middle East.
** That's nothing compared to "Pando", a clonal colony of Quaking Aspen in Utah has a root system that is estimated to be about 80,000 years old. There might even be other, less well-studied Quaking Aspen-systems in the area that are ''one million'' years old.
** For that matter, there are several such instances of very long-lived plant-based organisms.
** Not to mention fungal mycelia, which are typically as old as the forests they grow under.
* The ''Turritopsis nutricula'' is, theoretically, biologically immortal. After sexual maturity and reproducing, the creature reverts to a polyp (younger) stage. The cells and biology of the creature change completely as opposed simply mimicking the younger stage. The process of developing sexual maturity, reproduction, and returning to polyp stage than repeats.
* There is evidence that [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydra_(genus) hydras]] may age very slowly or not at all, making them potential candidates for being biologically immortal.
* Sea turtles never age. They can die only by violent death or by an illness not caused or hastened by old age.
** Not the case. They do not age ''outwardly'' past maturity, still making them candidates for this trope. The more long-lived ones last about 80 years.
** Even more true of some tortoises — the Galapagos variety can supposedly live to 200 or more!
*** One of the three giant tortoises taken from the Galapagos Islands by Charles Darwin, named Harriet, was 176 years old when she died in 2006.
**** Most turtles and tortoises can live to be 80 to 100 years old; this includes small land turtles and tortises which are kept as pets. However, because of the way people treat these creatures, most die of either abuse, malnutrition, or neglect within one year. Statistics given by a member of the Colorado Reptile Humane Society board.
* Females of many species of spiders, at least those who do not die of debilitation after laying eggs, continue to grow and molt throughout their entire lives. They generally die from predation, duels with rivals of their own species, or molting problems that can affect older individuals (who, like the turtles, do not differ visually from their younger selves). Female tarantulas can live to be 30 while continuing to mate with males who seldom reach 2.
* In the Bristle Cone Pine page info in the Wikipedia entry, there is also a link to the ''Arctica islandica'', an ordinary-looking mollusk actually found to be 405 to 410 years old. This made it the longest solitary animal on record which forms accretionary skeletons.
* And then there's the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taxus_baccata Yew]], a major contender in the Oldest Living Thing stakes. In Britain, many parish churches have yews in the grounds and there are many folk explanations, the most common being that they were planted to provide the close-grained, flexible timber required to make longbows for the English army. However, given how painfully slowly yew trees grow this is clearly nonsense. The trees weren't planted in the churchyard, the church and churchyard were planted in the yew groves that were already very old and sacred to the kind of guys who built Stonehenge.
* Many trees, left to themselves, will age and eventually die but if humans intervene by [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coppice coppicing]], as they have for millennia for the production of charcoal, fencing poles and other trappings of industry and agriculture, there seems to be no limit to how long they can survive. Coppicing keeps the tree [[NotAllowedToGrowUp eternally youthful]].
* Given that there are different branches of medical science that are separately working on coming up with ways to someday make it possible to maintain a youthful appearance for years as well as have longer life expectancies, it is be safe to say that medical science is ultimately working toward making ''some'' form of Really700YearsOld possible for humans.
* Most people don't think of humans as particularly notable for their age, but while the average lifespan of a human is fairly normal in the mammal world, their record age (122 years old, if not more) is the longest of any mammal. It's possible one woman once lived to 160, but this may be a case of being confused with her grandmother, who she was named after.
* A koi by the name of Hanako was determined to be over 215 years old through studies of her scales, which grow rings like tree trunks. She died in 1970. By comparison, koi are usually said to not live beyond 50. Sort of gives new meaning to the koi's reputed longevity, huh?

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'':
** In third edition, a 110-year-old elf is said to be equivalent to a 15-year-old human. However, the sourcebooks have disagreed on whether this is their physical age, or simply the age where they reach full emotional maturity and are considered adults by their culture. In the fourth edition, elves and eladrin reach adulthood in the same time as humans, but stay in their prime for as long as 200-300 years.
** Dwarves tend to be long-lived, and can live to be over 700 years old if they're lucky. Their close cousins the gnomes can live a few centuries too, but not as much (except forest gnomes, who have been known to live a ''very'' long time, some as old as 800 years).
** Giants tend to live to be very long lived in some sources. Stone giants live the longest, up to 800 years. Storm giants can live to be 600, while cloud giants can average 400. Other giants aren't so lucky, but can still live anywhere from two to three centuries.
** Edition 3.5 also has two races that are technically immortal and don't have a maximum age; Elan reach venerable age at 1000 (an elf's venerable age is 350...) and don't have a maximum age, while the Killoren only reach 'old' age at around 500 and don't have a venerable age category or a maximum age.
*** Elan, as a created race, are made to be effectively immortal. The first creator of the Ectopic Adept prestige class (From ''Complete Psionic'') supposedly is still wandering the planes, after a few thousand years.
** The second edition module ''Darklords'' for {{Ravenloft}} had a vampire [[CreepyChild child]] ''ala'' ''TheVampireChronicles''
** This trope also applies to several of {{Ravenloft}}'s ''human'' darklords, owing to the Dark Powers' [[StatusQuoIsGod keeping them around]] to torment.
** There are a number of people in the TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms setting who are much order than they look. The Seven Sisters are more than 700 years old but appear to be in their thirties. Elminster Aumar and Halaster Blackcloak are more than a thousand years old but appear to be just old men.
** In the 2nd Edition {{Birthright}} setting, one of the inheritable blood abilities (drops of divine power left in the mortal world) is Long Life, allowing someone to live up to five times, twenty times or ''one hundred times'' longer. One seemingly middle-aged character is widely rumoured to have gained his long life at the very battle where the Old Gods died!
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' has its elves following this very well, along with many of their vampires. The Slann seem to look the same no matter how many thousand years they have lived, and daemons do not age.
** Arguably, daemons aren't alive, being at best quasi-sentient magical constructs formed from the emotions of sentient races. That being said, there are a number of Chaos-related things which fall into this trope (if not TimeAbyss): the dragon ogres made a pact with Tzeentch for immortality in exchange for servitude (and [[ImmortalProcreationClause sterility]]), and only seem to age and grow when woken by thunderstorms. The sorcerer Udolpho traded his soul for immortality (apparently for himself and his household), with the proviso that he was never bored[[note]] his family were forced to act out an endless succession of SoapOpera style melodrama, as was everyone else who spent time at the House[[/note]]. The one who really takes the cake, however, is the Great Enchanter, [[MeaningfulName Constant]] Drachenfels; thanks to his habit of [[BodySurf body-surfing]], he is/was old enough to remember the coming of the Slann to the Warhammer world, which means that he, personally, was older than ''every other sapient species on the planet''.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'':
** Slaanesh is easily older than 10,000 years old, but whenever s/he chooses to reveal itself to a mortal will take a form that person considers the most attractive.
** The Emperor himself is provably older than Slaanesh and claims ([[SelfProclaimedLiar with debatable evidence]]) to be ''five times'' older, but looks like a human male in his thirties or something. Or rather, he ''used to'' look like that before being put on life support for the last ten thousand years; now he looks like [[BodyHorror what you'd expect him to look like after being strapped to a chair for one hundred centuries]].
** Space Marines in general have a life expectancy closer to a thousand years, but certainly don't look like that, while their Chaos equivalents can live practically forever -- and even if they kinda look like shit, [[TheCorruption it has nothing to do with their age]].
** Also in the ''Warhammer 40000'' universe, there's the Apex Twins, a pair of [[CreepyTwins psychic twins]] who are [[PersonOfMassDestruction alpha-level psykers]]. They have the appearance of two 6-year-old girls and project an aura of incredible cuteness and harmlessness, inspiring anyone nearby to protect them, even if they were originally supposed to be killing them. Their true age is unknown, but it is known to be measured in millennia.
** Because of the existence of rejuvenat treatments, everyone (well... everyone with either lots of money or the right connections) in the Imperium can retain their youthful looks for quite a while. One novel has an assassin in her late teens impersonate a fictional noble somewhere past 150.
** According to most (non-battle) fluff (which isn't a lot), Eldar don't leave school until they're 100, and, according to the codex, show no signs of age until they're about 1,000. If that means what I think it means...
*** And given that Farseers actually get ''tougher'' as they get older...
*** Eldrad Ulthran was an ancient and respected seer 10,000 years ago and was a young trainee during the Fall; which was at least 100,000 years ago (If not older, one of the Codices has a passage from an Eldar poet who mentioned that the Eldar have sung their songs of lament since before humanity's first ancestors crawled on their bellies from the sea). Asdrubael Vect is at least as old, but he uses dark sorcery and blood sacrifice.
** Yriel is at least a thousand years old, but pictures of him and his model make him look more like he is 30-ish.
** The Phoenix Lords might be an extreme example, as they are conglomerates of the souls of everyone to have worn their armor dominated by the consciousness of the first and greatest, which suggests that they are biologically three hundred or so while mentally over a hundred thousand.
** Yarrick is, what, four hundred? And still disassembling Orks with an old power klaw. BadassGrandpa indeed.
** Eisenhorn is at least 190 years old, but isn't slowing down yet.
*** He was 42 in Xenos, 140 in Malleus, and 256 in Hereticus. Hereticus ends in the 7th century of M41, so he'd be pushing 500.
** Eisenhorn has nothing on Kryptmann, who is rumored to still be at large hunting Tyranids around the Galaxy, despite being more than ''2000'' years old and on the run for much of this time.
*** Hive Fleet Behemoth arrived in the 5th century of M41, and I'm pretty sure that he wasn't 1500 years old by then.
** Commissar Ciaphas Cain, '''HERO OF THE IMPERIUM!''' is around 200 in his first story but doesn't seem to have shown any effects yet.
*** This is dubious and is probably a misinterpretation of the text reference. In other places it was said that Cain was 200 to 2500 when he ''died'. Though the nature of his career led to rampant fan speculation that his death was only a ruse to hide his promotion to the ranks of [[StateSec Inquisition]].
* The ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade'' RPG by WhiteWolf has tons of examples of this, of course. One of the more notorious should be Ur-Shulgi, who looks like a small child but is thousands of years old. There's even one über-ancient vampire, the progenitor of the mad Malkavian clan, that appears at one point as ''12'' small girls with glowing eyes.
** The TabletopGame/OldWorldOfDarkness is fond of this; a good number of [[TabletopGame/KindredOfTheEast Kuei-jin]], [[TabletopGame/MageTheAscension mages]] and [[TabletopGame/WraithTheOblivion wraiths]] qualify, as does every [[TabletopGame/DemonTheFallen Fallen]] (having been around since the dawn of Creation).
** In the TabletopGame/NewWorldOfDarkness, ''TabletopGame/VampireTheRequiem'' features a number of examples.
* Most of the TabletopGame/{{Exalted}} age extremely slowly beyond a certain point, which normally results in ImmortalityBeginsAtTwenty and the occasional BadassGrandpa. However, Abyssal Exalted stop aging at all, regardless of what age they were when they exalted. One of the Deathlords (the Dowager) is specifically mentioned as having a(n apparently) 10-year-old girl as a Deathknight servant. Her name is Shoat of the Mire and she's a Dusk caste, which means she will [[LittleMissBadass kick your ass.]]
** Of course, let us not forget the slightly older-looking, more well-known Raksi and, since Second Edition, Mnemon. Whether because you were scarred by the formless chaos your people fled to at the fall of {{Atlantis}} or because you screwed up at wizarding school and they had to build another one, ending up a sixteen year old-looking redheaded hottie for the rest of your unnaturally long life ain't so bad an outcome. Of course, it wouldn't be [[GreyAndGrayMorality meaningful]] if it didn't also make you a cannibal or (one of) TheChosenOne(s).
* Rook Catchfly in ''TabletopGame/{{Nobilis}}'' appears to be ten, but she's actually from the nineteenth century and thanks to the nature of Afflictions, she is totally unable to age. She has been known to protest that she's "not young, just stuck!"
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Theater]]
* The title character of ''Theater/{{Iolanthe}}'' is a fairy who looks like a 17-year-old girl. In the backstory, she married a mortal and had a son, Strephon; in the play, his age is 25. This causes problems for Strephon when he is seen in Iolanthe's company, since no one will believe that's she's his mum.
* The opera singer Emilia Marty, in Karel Čapek's play (and Leoš Janáček's opera) ''The Makropulos Affair'', is really 300 years old. She gets more than a bit tired of life, however.
* ''Theater/DamnYankees'':
-->'''Lola''': Joe, you make me feel girlish--and I'm 172 years old.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:VideoGames}}]]
* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'', Fang and Vanille are 521 and 519 years old chronologically thanks to being in crystasis for centuries.
** In the [[FinalFantasyXIII2 sequel]], Fang and Vanille are 1021 and 1019.
*** In the [[VideoGame/LightningReturnsFinalFantasyXIII third installment]], everyone alive is 500 years older due to the time crash allowing people to not be able to die naturally. Fang did the math and concluded that she was the oldest hag on the planet.
* ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'': Who knows how old [[spoiler:Joshua]] really is? (Which makes it all the more creepy that he's constantly [[spoiler:[[HoYay hitting on Neku]]...]].
** Or [[spoiler:Hanekoma]], for that matter.
* Lilith from ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'', whose consciousness is 290 years old — but it could also be seen as a subversion, since she didn't actually have a body until the game.
** The body in question is a barely-clothed loli succubus in spandex.
* In Nippon Ichi's ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'', Demons and Angels in the netherworld and Celestia age 100 times slower than humans, making Laharl's group biologically 13, 14, and 15 despite them being that many ''centuries'' old. Demons in the human world Veldime mature like humans but maintain their life span, explaining why these Demons look and act older than the characters from the first game despite being significantly younger. The only characters this doesn't explain are Lamington (is 9000+ despite looking 30) and druids who look old as a result of being a druid despite age.[[note]]Well, according to the Dark Records, a druid appears to be old because of the gem embedded to their forehead.[[/note]]
** Also from NipponIchi, the characters [[spoiler:Croix and Alouette]] are much older than their teenaged appearance would suggest.
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'': [[spoiler:Mithos, Kratos and Yuan are about 4,000 years older than they look because of their use of magiscience implants.]]
** The BigBad of Symphonia wins this trope because [[spoiler: he makes himself look as he did when he was the same age as Genis.]]
* Goddess Ashtarte in ''[[VideoGame/TearsToTiara2 Tears to Tiara 2]]'', actually [[OurElfsAreBetter an elf]]. Her father fought and died in [[TearsToTiara the Great War as part of Arawn's Royal Guards]] a thousand years ago. She herself remember making a pact with legendary king Eshmun, something that took place hundreds of years ago.
* The ''VideoGame/{{Suikoden}}'' series is full of this trope, given that anybody with one of the 27 true runes is ageless. If they don't fit this trope yet, they likely will. Goes along with ImmortalityBeginsAtTwenty and WhoWantsToLiveForever.
** Ted looks like a teen, but is actually 300 years old in the first game and 150 in the fourth game (a prequel).
** Not to mention Sierra Mikain, who likes like a young woman and is actually over 800 years old in the second game, making her one of the oldest things alive.
** Slightly more believable is Geddoe, who appears to be a middle aged man but is actually 111 years old.
** Dont forget Leknaat, although look like middle age women, she's actually 400 years old. By association Zerase from the fifth game also likely applies, but she may be a ghost...
** The mysterious and sexy Rune Mistress [[MsFanservice Jeane]] has been in every Suikoden game. Even the ones that are separated by many centuries. Unlike Viki she does not have the excuse of [[TimeTravel teleporting through time]]. She also seems to know Eresh in the fifth game, and it is suggested that she too is ReallySevenHundredYearsOld despite being the complete opposite of Jeane.
** The Harmonian Emperor Hikusaak (an unseen character, but since [[spoiler:Luc and Sasarai]] are his clones we have pretty good idea what he looked like as a teenager) is somewhere around 500 years old as of ''SuikodenIII'', the chronologically latest game in the series.
* Most of the cast of the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' games is made up of ancient spirits of one kind or another (ghosts, demons, vampires, guardian spirits, etc.) who just ''happen'' to look and act like young women or adolescent or pre-adolescent girls.
** By far the best ''Touhou'' example (and perhaps the best example ever) is Suwako Moriya, a cheerful little girl with [[http://en.touhouwiki.net/images/2/2c/Th123Suwako.png cute froggies on her dress]] and an [[NiceHat adorable hat]] to match, who is ''over two thousand years old''. At the ''very least''.
** Lunarians are canonically ReallySevenHundredYearsOld in respect to their age but young in appearance, all of them. "[[BossSubtitles Brain of the Moon]]" Eirin Yagokoro is said to be [[UpToEleven old even by their standards]] and says of herself that [[TimeAbyss her true age]], divided by 500, would mathematically be equivalent to zero.
* Elws like Mariel, [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Crimson Nobles]] like Marivel, Demons like Beatrice, and characters like [[spoiler: Anastasia who are trapped somewhere beyond the Event Horizon]] in the ''WildArms'' series. All of them have the appearance of 10- to 16-year-old girls. All of them have lived ever since the time of legends.
* In ''SagaFrontier'', Mystics are immortal and can always retain a youthful appearance. Interestingly, Asellus, who is [[HalfHumanHybrid half human and half mystic]] courtesy of a [[BloodMagic blood transfusion]], gains immortality and an eternal hold of her looks as something of a default for Mystic powers (in-game, she needs to absorb Mystic powers with three certain items to access stronger magic.)
* ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' has plenty of these regularly recurring throughout the series, and they are almost always some type of dragon in human form (most commonly as [[TokenMiniMoe young girls]]). This is played up when Tiki, who had met Marth in [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia the original game]] and its various remakes, meets [[spoiler:Lucina]] in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Awakening]]'' (over 2000 years later) and believes her to be Marth. %% Not spoiler tagging Lucina's gender, since her name is already tagged.
** Most of the dragon laguz in [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius ''FireEmblem: Path of Radiance'' and ''Radiant Dawn'']], as none of them are younger than a few centuries (dragon laguz children are exceptionally rare, to the point that [[spoiler: when Ena gives birth to one in ''Radiant Dawn'''s epilogue it's cause for celebration]]). While other laguz rarely reach their 700s, it has happened on rare occasions, though they generally look like humans in their 90s.
*** Specifically, Dheginsea, the King of the dragon laguz country Goldoa, participated in the fight against [[spoiler: Yune, the Goddess of Chaos around 800 years ago]] and has hardly changed or decreased in power since. Even other dragon laguz, easily in their 700s, are surprised by this.
*** Then there's the around 1000 year-old (or possibly much more) [[spoiler:heron Sephiran, mainly due to him being favored and blessed by the goddess]], who actually passes as a ''beorc'' (equivalent of human) in his 20s until TheReveal near the end of the game. In the GoodEnding, we see him again [[spoiler:1,200 years after the events of the game, looking as young as ever.]]
* Piers of ''VideoGame/GoldenSun''... ''[[VagueAge might be]]'' several hundred years old, because he is from a land where they use alchemy to age more slowly.
** It also makes for a CrowningMomentOfFunny. When leaving Lemuria, Sheba and Jenna grill Piers, trying to get him to tell his real age. Kraden also insists that he tell, because he says "they might have been as respectful" to him as they should have. Piers retorts that he wants them to treat him as they have all along (as someone their age). After further prodding, it is revealed that they really did just want to know how ''old'' he is. Piers, offended and upset, tells them to shut up. We (the players) [[VagueAge never do learn his real age]].
*** A young Lemurian girl whose mind you can read has exasperated thoughts on the fleeting nature of childhood and youth. A ''handful of decades'', and suddenly you have to get a job and start paying bills.
** This explains why Babi from the first game lived so long — he stole some [[AppliedPhlebotinum Lemurian Draught]]. Babi was cut off due to his departure and inability to find Lemuria again, and Felix's party is informed in the second game that the guy died when he finally ran out. This comes as a blow to Kraden, whose entire purpose as a scholar under Babi had been finding either Lemuria or an alternative route to {{Immortality}}.
*** At the end of ''The Lost Age'', the Golden Sun rises over Weyard. Those involved are directly exposed to enough of Alchemy's power to slow their aging drastically over the next thirty years. The most affected? Kraden, who was supposed to find {{Immortality}} for his boss and [[{{Irony}} ended up with it himself]], and who has not aged a day since then. And ''all'' of the characters who return in ''Dark Dawn'' [[RunningGag comment on it]].
* Subverted in ''VideoGame/AmnesiaTheDarkDescent'', where [[spoiler: Alexander]] actually does look like a really old dude. [[spoiler: It may vary, however, if he'd managed to impersonate his own 'descendants' for generations.]]
* ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights'' series:
** Aribeth in the main campaign is around 130. Needless to say, being an elf, she looks more like she is in her mid twenties. The same applies with Linu in the first game, Nathyrra in ''Hordes of the Underdark'', and Elanee in ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights2''. Of course, your character can be a hundred-plus-year-old elf too.
** ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights2'':
*** Ammon Jerro's age is left unstated (Shandra Jerro isn't even sure by how many "greats" he's her grandfather). He looks to be in his late forties but is almost certainly much older.
*** Safiya, in ''Mask of the Betrayer'', is [[spoiler:biologically around 20 but technically a splinter of a personality dating back around a thousand years]].
*** Kaelyn the Dove, also of ''Mask of the Betrayer'', is a half-celestial of indeterminate age who also looks twenty-something.
*** Soraevora Aeravand, a sun elf you can recruit as a cohort in ''Storm of Zehir'', is a mild subversion in that she's so old she's actually starting to look her age. This probably puts her past half a millennium.
* In ''Franchise/MortalKombat'', nearly everyone who isn't originally from Earthrealm or, possibly, Seido (Orderrealm), is actually several centuries old. This includes Princess Kitana, Sindel, Bo' Rai' Cho, Shao Kahn, Shang Tsung, Quan Chi, Goro (who had been Mortal Kombat Champion for almost a millennium), and Raiden (who, at least, is a god, as is Fujin).
** Shang Tsung is actually from Earthrealm. He just uses his ability to steal souls to stay young, with some extra help from Shao Kahn in the second game.
* Mir and Shurelia in ''ArTonelico'' are, respectively, 380 years old and an unspecified advanced number of years old (it's mentioned in [[AllThereInTheManual canon materials]] that Shurelia lies about her age). [[spoiler: However, when their true forms are revealed, they both turn out to be among the youngest-looking characters in the game. Mir also [[HeelFaceTurn returns in the second game as a love interest]], not really looking any older.]] The game also features Misha, who is [[spoiler: [[OlderThanTheyLook Older Than She Looks]] due to a magical-strength-sapping incident.]]
** This trope continues in ''ArTonelico2'', with the Reyvateil Administrator of Metafalss, Frelia, both looking and acting like a thirteen year old girl. Unlike Shurelia, however, [[AllThereInTheManual Frelia's young appearance is stated to be unnatural]] and was caused by the removal (several centuries ago) of an important component of her artificial body that regulates a Reyvateil's growth. [[spoiler: Since the component is returned to Frelia at the end of the game, she might very well begin to age again and eventually take on a more mature appearance.]]
* The Vahnatai in ''VideoGame/{{Exile}}''/''VideoGame/{{Avernum}}'' live for a few thousand years and spend several centuries as children.
* [[spoiler:Rose]] in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfDragoon''. [[spoiler:She was a part of the first group of Dragoons...over ''ten thousand years ago.'']]
* One of the endings to ''ShadowOfMemories'' reveals [[spoiler:Hugo and Dana's father was granted eternal youth by Homunculus before sealing him in the [[MacGuffin Philosopher's Stone]]; when the smoke clears, the father is shown to be an amnesiac Eike.]]
* Night Elves in ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'' games were granted immortality 10,000 years ago, so most of them are several millennia old, despite looking quite young. They sacrificed their immortality to stop the Burning Legion's invasion in ''Warcraft 3'', but even the mortal elves live for several centuries.
** Draenei are another long-lived race. Several young-looking ones can recall Argus, their home planet they left 25,000 years ago. Some were adults when they left and most don't appear old at all. They might be immortal (or just ''incredibly'' long-lived), or their [[{{Magitek}} spaceship]] might have put them in some sort of stasis.
** Everyone in ''Warcraft'' who uses arcane magic has an extended lifespan. Races that have a particularly close connection to it, such as the elves and the Draenei, have much longer life spans than the other species.
*** With all their experience with arcane magics, and divine intervention from the Naaru, Draenei actually are immortal, in that, a Draenei would never die of old age.
* In ''{{Aveyond}}'', Jack from ''Ahriman's Prophecy'' is more than 200 years old by the time the party in ''Aveyond 2'' free him from a stone statue curse despite the fact that he's physically 14. Also after ''Aveyond 1'' and after Galahad gets turned into a vampire, he's around 200 years old in ''Aveyond 2'' and by the time he appears in ''Aveyond 3: Lord of Twilight'' and ''Gates of Night'', he's at least 337 years old even though he looks like he's around 30. And to mention that Te'ijal is around 831 years old in ''Aveyond 3'' despite her appearance.
* ''Franchise/MassEffect'''s Asari are universally long-lived. Liara is embarrassed at her own lack of experience (she is a mere 106 years old), while her mother, Matriarch Benezia, is around 1,000. Justicar Samara is around 700, and her daughter [[spoiler: Morinth]] is around 400; [[spoiler: they've been playing cat and mouse for ''centuries''.]]
** Lampshaded by Ashley, who remarks that she hopes she looks that good when she gets to Liara's age.
** Likewise, Krogan live to 1,000 or more, if they don't get themselves killed in a gunfight first.
** [[spoiler: Then there's the Leviathans, and their bastard offspring The Reapers, one of whom, Harbinger has been alive for at least a billion years, albiet with the majority of those years spent hibernating. It's unknown if the Leviathan Sheperd meets has been alive since the Reapers turned on them or was born later, or if they follow the same lifestyle. If it's the former, then there's no telling how long they can live.]]
* The minions of ''VideoGame/{{Overlord}}'', surprisingly enough. According to the developer's FAQ, no one knows how old minions get because no minion has ever died of natural causes. Gnarl, in particular, is by his own account old enough to remember what the long-extinct dragons were really like, and Giblet has served at least three different Overlords.
* In the ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' DLC ''Mothership Zeta'', the playable character meets a young girl named Sally, who was abducted by aliens... during the nuclear war that took place 200 years prior to the game's events.
** Sort of used with most of the other "Mothership Zeta" characters. Aside from one Wastelander they've all been in stasis for a while. They may not have lived all that time, but the medic from a battle some years before the nuclear war, the cowboy and the samurai are still all hundreds of years old.
*** There is also the matter of Ghouls, many are over 200 years old (post war ghouls), but have not changed much since their initial 'transformation'.
* ''VideoGame/BlazBlue's'' local ElegantGothicLolita {{Vampire}}, Rachel Alucard is at least 100 years old physically but looks like a preteen. By the True End of ''Calamity Trigger'', [[spoiler:she [[TimeAbyss remembers 72,500 years]] of time-looped history. Hazama can remember it all too, so he quaifies]].
** Similarly, ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' has [[BadAss Sol Badguy]] and [[CulturedBadass Slayer]], both of which have been around for a while. Slayer is a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire]] from a different dimension that likes to interact with people in Sol's world from time to time, even founding the Assassin's Guild hundreds of years before the plot of the first game.
** Sol is so old even he's forgotten how old he is. He doesn't even remember his birthday. He saved [[BadassGrandpa Kliff Undersn's]] life back when Kliff was only seven years old. Implied to be about 170.
* ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'' has Rosalina, who left the Mushroom Kingdom as a child and comes back on a comet every hundred years. She is now centuries old, yet still looks like a young woman.
* The ''VideoGame/BreathOfFire'' games have this in bucketloads:
** In I-III (which are per [[WordOfGod Word Of Capcom]] in the same universe) we have Deis aka Bleu. Justified in her case due to [[spoiler: being an actual goddess]], but just based on the timelines noted, Deis is potentially several ''thousand'' years old.
** In IV (which may or may not be an AlternateUniverse), we have Fou-lu (in a case of ImmortalityBeginsAtTwenty and justified by the fact he is a literal GodEmperor) and the ''entire'' town of Chek (a city full of summoners whom NeverGrowUp and it is implied some are very old indeed despite their pre-pubescent good looks; justified in that [[spoiler:being near the summoning temple for the gods of that world keeps 'em young]]).
** In ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireDragonQuarter'' (which per [[WordOfGod Word Of Capcom]] is an AlternateUniverse), we have Elyon (whom, besides being a Fou-lu Expy, is also explicitly one thousand years old; justified in that he essentially stopped aging after [[spoiler:a merge with the dragon Odjn]].) Mildly subverted in that [[spoiler:Elyon is dying and ends up picking the protagonist--a ''very'' low-caste individual--to accomplish the mission he couldn't of opening the gates to the sky]].
* ''VideoGame/SecretOfMana'' features a 200 year old example in the shape of a lady sage.
* [[spoiler:Sophie, Lambda and Emeraude]] of ''VideoGame/TalesOfGraces'' are all at least 1000 years old.
* Fran and her entire Viera sisterhood from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'' all appear to be in their mid to late twenties, and their leader might just pass for thirty. However, since they never actually age, they're all actually very old. Their lifespan is about least three times that of humans. For example, Fran is at the bare minimum fifty.
* ''VideoGame/AtelierIrisEternalMana'''s friendly witch Zeldalia is approximately 120 years old (having said that she is "probably five times Delsus' age").
* In ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer'' there is Kane who IS [[Literature/TheBible biblical]] Cain.
** Technically, he's [[spoiler:an alien trapped on Earth for thousands of years]].
* A number of {{Pokemon}}, including a few that aren't Legendaries, apply. To name a few, Ho-oh and Lugia guarded the two towers in Ecruteak City 150 years ago, presumably residing there for centuries. Kyogre and Groudon are said to have created the seas and continents. Mew and Arceus throw all of those to shame as they're both contradictorily claimed to be the progenitor of all known Pokémon, with Arceus forming all of the universe out of nothing.
* Ogmo from the ''VideoGame/{{Jumper}}'' series is no younger than 116 years old by the time ''Jumper One'' rolls around, and in ''Jumper Three'', his age is counted in millennia.
* ''[[HarukanaruTokiNoNakaDe Harukanaru Toki no Naka de 3]]'' has Hakuryuu, originally the dragon-like deity powering up the main heroine, who now lost most of his strength along with his original appearance. Going from the series' chronology, as a deity he must have been around for ''at least'' 400 years, but when the characters first meet him, he is in the form of a human child aged about ten. Later, as he partially regains his powers, his appearance changes to ([[CastFullOfPrettyBoys a more appropriate]]) one of a LongHairedPrettyBoy in his mid-twenties... still fitting this trope, as his chronological age remains the same.
* ''VideoGame/{{Ys}}'' has the two goddesses,[[spoiler:Feena and Reah]], who have the appearance of teenage girls. In actuality, they're both over 600 years old.
* Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: ''EndlessFrontier'' EXCEED has quite a few, Suzuka seems to be a child but she's over 100 years old. The well rounded Neige Hausen seems to be 20 but she's actually 117 years old and Xiaomu originaly from Namco X Capcom raises the party's average age by A LOT. She is actually 765 years old despite looking like around 18.
* A case could be made for ''{{Okami}}'''s protagonist, [[AGodIsYou Amaterasu]]. The game's backstory extends 200 years, and she was around then. Of course, half of that time was spent as SealedGoodInACan, but she's definitely more than 100 years old, even more if you account for dog years. The moon tribe also live for an unbelievably long time: [[spoiler:they were almost eliminated over 200 years ago. There are 2 left, Waka and Kaguya, who both look like they're in their late teens. Who knows how old they are.]]
* In ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'', Witches and Sages live for an extremely long time. Bayonetta herself is around a thousand years old, despite looking like she's in her twenties. [[spoiler:Cereza looks like she's around five, but is a hundred times older than that.]]
** Considering her parents met in the 14th century (It's on the lipstick tube) and her mother was executed soon after she was born, Bayonetta is closer to 650 and spent 500 of that in suspended animation. Point still stands for Jeanne, who was not in stasis and looks 30 at the oldest; and Balder, who actually is a thousand or so and appears to be a very fabulous 40.
* Alucard from ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' looks like a teenager or young adult in every game he appears. But he's been around from 1476 (''VideoGame/CastlevaniaIIIDraculasCurse'') to 2036 (''VideoGame/CastlevaniaDawnOfSorrow'')
* Due to the Triforce of Power's influence, Ganondorf from ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' lives through several incarnations of Links and Zeldas--several hundred years, at the very least, and probably much longer--but he usually looks like a normal-ish 40-year-old human. Of course, it helps that he has been brought back from the dead several times.
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' vaguely implies that Ganondorf's people, the Gerudo, may age slower than Hylians in general. The two witches, Koume and Kotake, do look like decrepit, old women, but the player probably wouldn't have guessed they were 400 years old. The rest of the Gerudo are all very beautiful women who look no older than twenties or early thirties at best, but it seems dubious to assume all of them are really that young.
*** They are 380 and/or 400 years old, depending on who you believe.
* Flemeth in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' looks like she's about 70, which is even partially true, but she really is several centuries old. But she's cheating.
** [[spoiler:At the end of her youth, she abducts herself a suitable man to have a daughter which she then raises to be a witch like her to be her apprentice. When she's nearing her death, she simply steals her daughters body and is once again in her late 20s. She has pulled this trick many times in the past, but also has other means to reincarnate herself if she is slain in battle.]]
* The four goddesses of ''{{Neptunia}}'' are this trope. [[ImmortalImmaturity Not that you can tell really.]]
** Special mention goes to [[GreatBigBookOfEverything Histoire]] who is as old as the world itself.
* Introduced in ''VideoGame/JakIIRenegade'' is [[UnfortunateNames Pecker]], who is a [[MixAndMatchCritter moncaw]], a monkey-macaw mix. While it's not unheard of for macaws to live past the age of 75 in the wild and some monkey can live up to their sixties, it doesn't explain how Pecker is really 118 years old in ''Jak X''. Especially considering he and teenage Daxter [[ImmortalImmaturity bicker like children]].
** [[spoiler: Daxter himself also qualifies. He's 19 as of ''Jak X'', but due to traveling 300 years into the future, he's technically 319. Same with Keira, who's 18, but 318 years have passed since her birth.]]
*** [[spoiler: Jak, on the other hand, is an inversion, being 19, but only 6 - 7 years have passed since his birth (he spent around 12 - 13 years in the past).]]
* Franchise/TheElderScrolls "Mer" (Elven) races generally live longer than their man and beast race counterparts, with lifespans of several centuries to several millenia.
** Special mention to the Tribunal and Dagoth Ur from ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' who tapped into the Heart of Lorkhan (the still-beating heart of the "dead" creator god) to achieve divinity. They are at least 4000 years old by the events of the game.
*** Reclusive wizard Divayth Fyr is said by one of his [[OppositeSexClone daughters]] to be one of the oldest non-divine beings on Tamriel, also in the several thousand year old range.
*** The Great House Telvanni councilors have extended their lives through sorcery and/or necromancy. Baladas Demnevanni in particular claims to have been living in his residence since ''before there was an empire'' when asked why he won't pay his taxes.
** Babette, one of the members of the Dark Brotherhood in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', is a 300+ year old vampire who was turned when she was ten years old. She still looks and sounds like a child, aside from the creepy fangs and eyes, which she uses to her advantage during her missions. She'll tell you that she's no more a little girl than you are.
*** Knight-Paladin Gelebor, from the ''Dawnguard'' expansion, is [[spoiler:[[LastOfHisKind the last non-corrupted Falmer]],]] meaning he must be a few thousand years old as well in order to have survived that long. [[spoiler: Most of the rest of his species was enslaved and corrupted by the Dwemer, who themselves disappeared some 4000 years prior.]]
*** Also from ''Dawnguard'', Serana (and her parents). WordOfGod says that she was put into that sarcophagus during the second era interregnum, about six and a half centuries before the time frame of the game. Later in the quest line, dialogue from her suggests that she's lived in Castle Volkihar for a very long time before falling asleep. Even then it's unclear how old she was when she first moved into the castle. Being that she is of the first race of men, it's even possible that she is not too far descended from them.
* In ''{{Solatorobo}}'', the paladins [[spoiler:Elh and Béluga]] are really just over 300 years old. Also [[spoiler:Baion]], who woke up from suspended animation 350 years ago.
* The deities of ''AsurasWrath'' take this to really ridiculous extents, in that despite some of them looking around certain ages as described in their profiles, they are actually countless millenia in age. In fact, the entire civilization they come from take this trope to new heights, in that the deities are descendants of previous deities that protect the Shinkoku Civilization are even older, and their are at least over 100 generations of Deities that have protected their home.
* The High Entia in ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}'' have a lifespan of centuries and mature at a slow rate; these qualities also extending to half-breeds. For example, Melia, the party's resident SquishyWizard, looks to be in her late teens, but is actually in her 80s. None of them compare to the Nopon Sage and [[spoiler:the entire Machina race]] though, with the former being 9999 years old while still looking like a young Nopon, and the later being able to live several millennia without ever changing their appearance once they reach maturity.
* Subverted in ''Monster Girl Quest''. Monsters are able to live for millennia, so Luka assumes Alice is at least a few centuries old. However, she's actually 22.
* Luca Yurievna Vinakol from ''[[VideoGame/TroubleWitches Trouble Witches NEO!]]'' is quite possibly the poster child of this trope for video games. She's a [[ElegantGothicLolita cute]], {{tsundere}} [[CuteMonsterGirl devil girl]] who is '''100,013'''-years-old and she looks like [[http://i.imgur.com/1YYyj.jpg a 12-year-old]]! She easily out-hags [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Yukari Yakumo]] by a land-slide and she's the game's LightningBruiser!
* Robo from ChronoTrigger is 300 years old when you find him, and if you leave him to restore Fiona's forest, he'll be 700 years old by the game's conclusion.
** Sprigg from ChronoCross looks like an elderly woman, but considering she's 224, she looks rather good.
* ''VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}}'' has a few, but most notable is Annie, Girl of the Stars: A grizzled, jaded, centuries-old battle veteran in the body of a 12-year old TV celebrity MagicalGirl. Even her cuddly plush rabbit, Sagan, is a Parasite from a bygone era.
* ''VideoGame/StarCraft'': The protoss seem to have a lifespan approximately 10 times that of humans. It's implied that the xel'naga had even longer lifespans. [[spoiler:Samir Duran claims to have lived for millennia; ''Heart of the Swarm'' more or less confirms this.]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}'' has a whole bunch of such people:
** [[spoiler:Krelian, Gaspar/Melchior/Balthazar and probably Zephyr]] are more than 500 years old and are actually [[TheAgeless immortal]] because they replaced their mortal bodies (or upgraded and maintain it in ageless condition, it is not clear) with {{nanomachines}}.
** [[spoiler:Miang]] is 10000 years old because she is [[spoiler:Deus' personal field operative in humankind]] and [[spoiler:Deus]] hacked the human genome when [[spoiler: he created humankind on the game's planet]] to [[spoiler:add the Ouroboros gene, which allows her to [[GrandTheftMe possess any woman]]]].
** [[spoiler:Grahf]] is 500 and a few years old since he is actually [[spoiler:Lacan]], or more precisely the part of his personality which [[spoiler:[[RoaringRampageOfRevenge went crazy]] [[BerserkButton when Sophia/Elly got killed]]]]). He somehow manages to survive by [[GrandTheftMe stealing other people's bodies]] (the latest being [[spoiler:Fei's father Khan]], although it is not clear how or why, and the control he has on his hosts is not perfect.
** [[spoiler:Emperor Cain]] is actually, physically 10000 years old, without body snatching or similar tricks. How he could survive that long is not explained in detail, but it involves a lot of very advanced technology, and even with that he is definitely not in terrific shape.
* VideoGame/PuyoPuyo has two:
** Dark Wizard Schezo Wegey is at least 180 years old, but appears to be around the age of Arle or Rulue, give or take a couple of years. He's long stopped caring about his age.
** Satan, on the other hand, is around '''100,000''' years. Then again, he's frickin' Satan.
* [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in a sidequest in ''ShinMegamiTenseiStrangeJourney''. [[CasanovaWannabe A crew member falls]] in love with a [[CuteMonsterGirl Moh-Shuvuu]], and mentions that even though she looks young she's a demon so she's probably 300 years old or something, right? When you tell her about this, she tells you that no, she is not, in fact, hundreds of years old, and is quite [[Squick squicked out]] at the notion that a grown man would fall in love with her.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* Arcueid in ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'' is actually 800. She might not count due to sleeping most of the time, but she doesn't age, either. Her [[CainAndAbel sister]] is at least as old as Arcueid is, has probably spent the entire time active and looks only about 14, making her perhaps a better example.
** Len from the pseudo-sequel ''Kagetsu Tohya'' appears to be a little girl of about ten, but at the very least has lived several human lifespans.
* All the VisualNovel/FateStayNight [[PublicDomainCharacter Servants]], as they all appear using bodies based on their prime of life despite coming from time periods any time from a few years into the future to [[Literature/TheEpicOfGilgamesh 6000+ years old]]. This is kind of explained by the Root pulling them out of our traditional sense of time, and holding them in a kind of suspended animation between each Summoning.
* GirlsLove VisualNovel ''VisualNovel/AkaiIto'' has Asama Sakuya, who is 17-''[[spoiler:centuries]]'' old despite looking early 30s. She says that she's old enough to drink alcoholic beverages and rent adult videos.
** The sort-of sequel ''VisualNovel/AoiShiro'' has Kohaku, who is about 1000 years old despite looking like a young boy. Unfortunately, due to having a flawed immortal body, [[ViewerGenderConfusion she]] spend most of that time in torpor. However, that is nothing compared to her [[CallingTheOldManOut estranged foster father]], [[BigBad Ba Rouryuu]], who was there during the age of the gods (i.e. at least as old as Sakuya, above).
* [[spoiler:The physically 9-11 (no one knows) years old Furude Rika]] in ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'', thanks to the GroundhogDayLoop. Unlike Hanyu and most other examples, maturity matches mental age, though this is [[ObfuscatingStupidity deliberately hidden]] so as to not freak people out.
** This also applies to Hanyuu to a lesser degree due to [[spoiler: her not being in her true form to begin with]].
* Beatrice in ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'' is a weird example. She looks 20 but is a 1000 year old witch… [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope or so she claims]]. She is actually a [[ArcNumber 19-year-old]] human, and all her stories about her "distant past" are either invented, romanticized, and/or refer to her defunct mother and grandmother, who both had the same name.]]
** There's also the other two 1000-year-old witches, Bernkastel and Lambdadelta, though the question remains as to [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane whether they're actually real or not]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Amusingly subverted in SlightlyDamned. Kieri mentions that the war between angels and demons ended when she was a child. Rhea assumes that she is at least 300, even though she is actually 15, and looks the part.
* Webcomic/MagIsa -- [[http://mag-isa.thecomicseries.com/comics/pl/119733 Claudita]] is a lot older than she looks. She has been around... since the dawn of time.
* The Jägermonsters in ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' look fairly young — well within the range of a human lifespan. However, they remember events of over a hundred years ago, and one of them (who looks like he's in his late 20s, ''maybe'') has an adult human great-great-grandson. ([[BuffySpeak Jägermonster-ness]] is caused by a potion and not passed on in genes, so even if his kids were born after he transformed they'd be fully human.) And ''The Secret Blueprints'' say that Jaegers are nearly indestructible and many of the original company are still around, so the oldest Jaegers may well be some unknown number of centuries. No Sparks are known to be so old, which raises questions.
** To be fair, they've mentioned several previous Heterodyne family members as masters of theirs, and have bloodline loyalty, so how old a Spark could be doesn't really matter.
** No Sparks reach that age because Sparks tend to be...well...[[ScienceRelatedMemeticDisorder stark staring mad]], and many end up meeting a horrible end as a result of either personal overconfidence (taking on an entire army with a faulty death ray) or experimental screw-ups ("There have been three explosions so far.")
* Most of the cast of ''Webcomic/CharbyTheVampirate'' look like children but are [[http://www.drunkduck.com/Charby_the_Vampirate/4784486/ hundreds of years old]] or at least OlderThanTheyLook with few exceptions. Of course this sort of complicated when it comes to love even if some of the cast were not already [[http://www.drunkduck.com/Charby_the_Vampirate/4890641/ kind of messed up]].
* The demons of ''Webcomic/HeartCore'' can possibly live forever if they can consume Heartcore on a regular basis and not have their head or their own Heartcore destroyed, and they are good-looking. Protagonist Ame, herself, is almost 400 years old, while her father, Royce, is millenia old, and doesn't look like he's a day over 25.
* The butterfly-like Nemesites in ''Webcomic/TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob'' are extremely long-lived (a useful trait for a starfaring people without faster-than-light travel), but use shapeshifting technology to look like humans—typically, like young and very attractive humans.
* In ''Fallen'', Void [[http://fallencomic.com/pages/part%201/5-p1.htm can't buy cigarettes]]. She also happens to be [[http://fallencomic.com/pages/part3/32-p3.htm as old as the planet]].
* ''Webcomic/{{DDG}}'' doesn't specify how old [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Netta]] is, but she predates the discovery of electricity by a fair bit
* In ''Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures'', almost all Creature species have average lifespans measured in centuries. For some it's measured in millennia. Dragons and Fae outlive ''civilizations''.
** The Fae are essentially immortal, since they exist until they get tired of being around and release their spirit to be reincarnated into a new Fae. It's also been hinted that they don't experience time as other beings do, as they refer to other races as "linear beings".
* Angels in ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}''. Rumisiel introduces himself as being 437 years old, but looks about 18–20. Vashiel is his older brother who doesn't look older than 25. And Rumisiel dated Cassiel for 50 years.
* The One Electronic from ''Webcomic/RiceBoy'' has [[WalkingTheEarth roamed Overside]] for thousands of years. The number "three thousand" gets tossed around.
* In ''Webcomic/TheKAMics'', ex-valkyries Gertrude, Brunhilda and Nikki are several thousand years old, although they appear to be in their 20s.
* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', [[spoiler:Redcloak is kept from aging by the [[ArtifactOfDoom Crimson Mantle]]. Unlike most examples of this trope, it's indicated that he still has the mind as well as the body of a teenager.]] Of course this isn't visually all that apparent, due to being a stick figure.
** Vaarsuvius the elf is over 100 years old, but doesn't look any older than the rest of the Order. Apparently OOTS elves take a very long time to reach adulthood, as well as aging slowly once they're there; V's children, who are in kindergarten and look the part, are stated to be 26.
* The three main characters in the furry webcomic ''Webcomic/AtArmsLength'' appear to be in their late 20s, but are actually closer to three hundred years old. Ally's mother appears to to be in her late 40s/early 50s, but is actually several thousands of years old.
** The dragon characters Kaige and Kiley appear to be young adults, but Kiley perkily comments at one point that she and Kaige have been working together for more than 400 years.
* [[spoiler: Jade's Guardian, Becquerel]], in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', arrived on earth from a meteor impact during the Carboniferous period, which puts his age at [[ArcNumber 413]],000,000 years.
** Also, some of the [[spoiler:pre-scratch Ancestors]] have been hanging around as ghosts for so long that time has lost all meaning for them but they still look exactly the same age as [[spoiler:Meenah]] who only reappeared today.
** Her Imperious Condescension. Enough said.
* Corpral Vog from ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'' estimates his age at 12 million years with a 1% margin of error. Notably, that rounding error is longer than the history of human civilization even accounting for the series being set a thousand years in TheFuture.
** Also, this little gem (from a member of the same species):
--->'''Fobottr Tenant:''' Are you claiming that your people have been on the surface for over ten million years?
--->'''Rod:''' Oh, my people have been down there for ''much'' longer than that. No, I was just talking about ''me'', personally.
* The golem girls from ''WapsiSquare'' don't look like they could be any older that mid-twenties, but they are thousands of years old [[spoiler:even before you factor in the GroundhogDayLoop.]]
** And you can't forget [[spoiler:Shelly]], who [[spoiler:got stuck in a forest]] while the [[spoiler:GroundhogDayLoop ran ''in reverse'' for her]] and doesn't look a day older, and [[spoiler:Mayahuel, the inventor of the golems]], who [[spoiler:got stuck in a demon dimension while working on a way to cure her daughter's dimensional abnormality]]. Both are over [[spoiler:82,000]] years old.
* In ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'', WordOfGod said Vilbert von [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Vampire]] could be anywhere from 16 to 1600 years old. Towards the end, he says he's 700 years old (though due to his [[TheRoleplayer roleplaying]], it's hard to discern the truth of his statements).
* Liz the [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire]] from ''{{Blip}}'' is [[http://www.blipcomic.com/232/ about 5 centuries old.]] She lost count after the first two. It's hinted that Mary is even older.
* In ''WoodenRose'', [[http://www.woodenrosecomic.com/comic/chapter5/116.html Aidan is five hundred years old]].
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'':
** Pandora Raven is an Immortal and has lived for at least 300 years in her current incarnation. Despite this the most common form she chooses to interact with humans with is that of a little girl.
** Adrian Raven, her half-immortal son, is also a good deal older than he looks, though he at least has the decency to make himself look elderly when in public. His true form appears to be somewhere in his mid-twenties.
* Nigel from {{feywinds}} also has this. He's about 150 yrs old and looks in his late 20's. you could also say it for the sylphe as she's over 200 and really doesn't look it but maybe not because she's far less human than nigel...and dead...mostly.
* The Sages in ElfBlood are the only survivors of the original Kingdom of Alfheim, the elves' homeland and were among the last generation blessed with longevity. Although they do look to be in their 70s, they are around 600 years old or so, and may have used magical means to extend their lives given that no non-sage long-lived elves have been seen.
* ''YetAnotherFantasyGamerComic'' has the [[http://yafgc.net/?id=1926 case]] calling for a BeatPanel. Past the first century one can't tell exactly how old those elves are...
* In ''AmericanBarbarian'', [[http://www.ambarb.com/?p=418 the scientists]].
* In TheWaterPhoenixKing, several species like the Wyrds do this, but Vish inverts it, looking like a young adult but having come into existence 17 years ago.
* Elves in ''Webcomic/EarsForElves'' live into their 900s, and don't look old for any part of that. Luero is only a young adult, and [[http://www.earsforelves.com/archives/390 in his prime]] at 77.
* OffWhite: The wolves Sköll and his brother Hati are at least over 300 years old. Yes, it's [[NorseMythology that Sköll and Hati.]]. Though they don't seem to live more than a normal wolf lifespan in any given {{Reincarnation}}.
* Chapter 40 of Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt reveals [[spoiler:Jones to have been alive during a world war, the colonizing of America, and the burning of Rome. [[OlderThanTheyLook She looks exactly the same as she does in the comic's present]]]]. She has always looked like a rather striking human woman [[spoiler:despite her existence predating humanity itself. Or even life on Earth. She is ''really'' old.]]
** She cameos in Chapter 47, revealing that [[spoiler: She was around for both world wars. Mort was trying to rescue her from the Blitz when he died.]]
* ''Webcomic/TheSenkari'' has it's titular characters, the Senkari, who are all 80,548 years old despite looking like they are in their late teens or early twenties. This may be justified by their back-story however.
* In ''Webcomic/HeavenlyNostrils'', Marigold the unicorn has supposedly seen "oceans become forests become deserts".
* Mori of ''TheDragonDoctors'' is about 170 years old and appears to be in her/his mid-twenties. Mostly because she discovered a FountainOfYouth in her sixties and reverse-engineered it to make a LongevityTreatment that is now in common use.
* ''Webcomic/{{Karin-dou 4koma}}'' has a large amount of this, what with most of the cast being youkai or magicians. Most adult-appearing characters are hundreds of years old, with some easily passing a thousand. Having the form of a child is no guarantee either.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Several characters in MarvelsRPG are demons, angels, aliens, or just really long lived... while looking like they are still in their prime.
* Turns out [[NeuroticallyYours Foamy the squirrel]] is in fact over 400 years old and maybe even older.
* Valentine of LastMage is ''very old''. In specifics, we know he was there at the founding of the United States, so he's at least 235 years old.
* April, in [[Literature/TheLayOfPaulTwister The Lay of Paul Twister,]] apparently has a very extended lifespan, [[WizardsLiveLonger even for a magic user.]] When Paul hears about her, he takes it as confirmation that she is like him, except that his aging got slowed down [[CantGrowUp at a much earlier point.]]
* many characters on both sides of the war taking place in Website/{{Rplegacy}}'s fantasy crossover RPG are a lot older than they look: [[TheLegendOfZelda Princess Zelda]] is anywhere in the range of hundreds or thousands of years old but looks like a young adult, [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings the various Ainur on both sides]] have been around since the dawn of time, [[MarvelCinematicUniverse Thor is essentially immortal]], and [[TheChroniclesOfNarnia the Pevensies]] are technically many decades old after spending a lifetime in Narnia as royalty and then returning to England at their original ages. There are also some races present which exhibit great longevity, such as the Númenóreans, who are longer-lived than other Men, and the Yngvi (elves) native to Caranom, whose age cap is at about a thousand years but age very slowly.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Paradox from ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'' looks to be in his forties but has actually existed for a hundred thousand years.
** In the original series, the guardian of the Fountain of Youth is a centuries old explorer who still looks like a young man thanks to the Fountain. He is relieved when the Fountain is destroyed since he no longer has to guard it. He can spend his now mortal lifetime actually ''living''.
* A major chunk of the cast of ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' can claim this, although most of the eponymous gargoyles were stuck in a thousand-year stone sleep. Now, Demona and Macbeth, on the other hand...
** In one episode, Goliath does mention that gargoyles age only half as fast as humans (because they don't age while they are stone). Even discounting the millennium he spent as a statue, this could make him easily old enough to be Elisa Maza's father.
* WesternAnimation/InvaderZim has the physique (and [[CloudCuckooLander personality]]) of a ten year old, but he looked identical fifty years ago and {{Fanon}} puts his actual age in the centuries. (WordOfGod tells us he's "older than any living human".)
** This seems to be true of most of the Irken race.
*** Case in point: the Tallests. They may well be ''centuries'' old, but they still behave like a couple of spoiled teenagers.
* Wuya from ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown'' was imprisoned for 1,500 years, and in an early episode claims to have been around ''when the Earth was still young, and mankind was just crawling from the mud''. Yet, she is very voluptuous, nubile and attractive. She even [[HoodOrnamentHottie makes suggestive poses on the hood of a car]] she made for Raimundo after he joined her. Ironically, the other characters still refer to her as an old hag.
** Don't forget Chase Young, who is 1,000 years old but looks like he is in his early twenties, if that.
** And his ex-training partner Master Monk Guan - he even got there without a dragon-making immortality potion.
** And lastly, there's Hannibal Roy Bean, the founder of the Heylin side that all the other villains belong to.
** The only major "villain" in ''Xiaolin Showdown'' that isn't ReallySevenHundredYearsOld is Jack Spicer, and thats only before the 50 year time skip.
* Misery from ''WesternAnimation/RubyGloom'' looks like she's in her mid-teens, and so does most of her relatives and ancestors. However, it's been implied that some of them must be much older. During a family reunion, we are introduced to Mayhem, a relative who is old enough to remember the dinosaurs. Granted, that whole family reunion [[OrWasItADream might have been a dream]], but prior to that, she speaks of Mayhem as if she was still alive. She speaks the same way of Migraine, a relative who was aboard the Titanic. In another episode, Misery looks exactly the same in a flashback from seven years ago.
* [[WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce Master Shake's]] "son" Ezekiel lived to 4,000 years old. [[spoiler:Before the dragon got him.]]
* Several characters in ''WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}}'': the dragon Grougaloragran, BigBad Nox, Moon the monkey, and Goultard the barbarian.
* The Nibblonians and Brainspawn from ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' have been arch nemeses since the dawn of the Universe. The Nibblonians, and the planet-tentacle monster Yivo are even ''older'' than the Universe. It's fairly common for humans to reach 160 years of age, which, while still looking very old, appears to be far closer to 80-90.
** Though it isn't a straight shot across the centuries (his age comes from the fact he's traveled back in time then waited until the present rolled around again), Bender is well over 10,000 years old as of the first ''Futurama'' movie (this is taking to account he already waited under the Roswell sands for over 1000 years during "Roswell That Ends Well"). Ironically, prior to the Roswell episode bender was technically just entering his early teens (his birthday being sometime in 2990, 10 years before Fry would awake in the future).
** Farnsworth is somewhat of a funny deal. He is technically over 170, but some of that was due to him "overshooting" in the Fountain of Aging. This also invalidated his senior's discount card, which apparently has a lifetime duration (since the legal lifetime ended at your 160th birthday). This was played completely straight in an episode where he used his tax refund to buy a tub of stem cells to slather on himself, apparently reverting his appearance back to about 20 or so. Not quite 700, but good enough.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', while normally considered (and looking) about 104, Mr. Burns sometimes becomes this for the [[RuleOfFunny purposes of a joke]], such as entering his age as a 4 digit PIN, or giving his place of birth as Pangaea. In the (presumably non-canonical) clip show "Gump Roast", Kang and Kodos state they have been judging the Earth since it was created "Five thousand years ago, [[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: by GOD! ]]
" %%Actual line in the episode, and the show is never consistent as to whether it's on the side of theism or atheism.
** In a flashback of Homer in high school, Homer picks up a pamphlet promoting jobs at the Nuclear Power Plant; on the back is a picture of Mr. Burns looking no older than he regularly looks in the present.
** He's still alive (and looking only slightly worse for wear) in Holidays of Future Passed, an episode that ends with ''Maggie giving birth to her first child''.
** Even scarier? His mother is still alive. Though all she's capable of is dialing the phone and yelling.
* Lucius Henious VII from ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'' looks like he's in his mid-thirties at the oldest. However, according to one episode it took him four hundred years to grow his horns. Since he's essentially {{Satan}}, it's likely he's immortal.
** In flashbacks where Lucius VII has fully grown horns, Lucius VI doesn't look a day over 90.
** Sammy apparently used to work for Lucius VI before he worked for Lucius VII.
** Beezy neither looks nor acts particularly old, but he appears to be a fully grown Heinous, "fully grown" in this context meaning over 100 years old.
* The World's Oldest Woman from ''WesternAnimation/{{Histeria}}'', of course (she dated the 'Missing Link' and she can assure you that you're not missing much).
* In the first cartoon he appeared in, [[LooneyTunes Marvin the Martian]] claimed he had been working on the Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator for two millennia, meaning he's at least 2,000 years old. (Unless a millennia means a different amount of time on Mars than it does on Earth. But it likely means he's still older than his looks suggest.)
* Marceline from ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' is 1,003 years old, but looks 18 to 21. Naturally her father, Hunson, is probably much older.
** [[spoiler:The Ice King]] was a human from before "The Mushroom War", and he's 1043 years old.
** Even Bubblegum is much older than she appears. "The Suitor" implies she's ''at least'' over 300 years old.
*** By "The Vault", Finn has figured out that Bubblegum is not 19 years old as she claimed. She's definitely as old as the Candy Kingdom, at least.
*** In one of the Adventure Time video games, she's stated to be 827 years old and was spawned from the bubblegum mass from the episode Simon and Marcy.
** Moseph "Moe" Mastro Giovanni from "Be More" is at least 1000 years old.
* ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'': Following the events of "The Night Owl", Mordecai, Rigby, Muscle Man, and High-Five Ghost are over 2200 years old, having been [[HumanPopsicle frozen with liquid nitrogen]], unfrozen in the year 4224, and then time-traveled back into the past.
** Then there's Skips, who is probably centuries old and says "I've seen this before." probably makes it very ambigous. He must perform a ritual dance on his birthday to maintain his immortality.
* ''WesternAnimation/AaahhRealMonsters'': The monsters evidently live very, very long lives.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'' mixes this trope with VagueAge in the case of Papa Smurf, who's 542 years old (546 in the [[Film/TheSmurfs live-action movie]]), and Grandpa Smurf, who's said to be twice Papa Smurf's age.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': Princess Celestia's at least a thousand years old. Princess Luna may qualify too (it's unclear how old the royal sisters are, [[spoiler:and what state Luna spent her thousand-year imprisonment as Nightmare Moon in]]).
** The season 2 villain Discord ruled Equestria ''before'' Celestia and Luna, making him over 1000 years old at the least.
*** If a throwaway comment he makes about Pinkie Pie in part 2 is to be taken seriously, he is supposedly eons old.
* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'': Diana, Wonder Woman: despite her sheltered and almost childlike demeanor towards the world away from her home island, she is really over two thousand years old, and at one point, upon seeing an urn in a museum from the 6th century B.C.E., recognizes the handiwork and cites the artist's name as if she'd known the artist personally.
** Also in Justice League Mordred has the body and maturity of a child but is thousands of years old.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'':
** Cosmo sunk Atlantis nine times and destroyed Pompeii.
** "Cosmo, we've been married for thousands of years" - Wanda.
*** Their anniversary episode said it was nearly 10,000 years.
** Jorgen was the one who taught Cosmo magic.
** And therefore, Mama Cosma and Big Daddy, as Cosmo and Wanda's parents.
** Logically also Anti-Cosmo and Anti-Wanda, being the same age as their fairy versions.
** Then, From Wishology, it is revealed that [[spoiler: KISS, the actual band]] are galactic guardians and have been guarding the White Wand for centuries. It is humorously lampshaded.
** In the episode where Poof was born, it's revealed that Cosmo was the last fairy baby. This means that he's also the youngest of his entire race up until that point, which means everyone else are much older.
* The main villain of the ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' FiveEpisodePilot is an elderly Spaniard known only as "El Capitan". He turns out to be over 400 years old (it's hinted he was the conquistador seen in part 3 who made off with the same boatload of treasure Scrooge found in part 2), kept alive by "sheer willpower" and [[GoldFever his obsession with re-discovering the Treasure of the Golden Suns]].
* Tweety in ''TheLooneyTunesShow'' was revealed to have fought in WorldWarTwo despite still looking like a baby bird. When Sylvester asked how old he really was, Tweety refused to tell.
* In one episode of the ''WesternAnimation/DungeonsAndDragons'' cartoon, the heroes meet the Lost Children, who's entire species is very long lived. Although the children themselves don't fit the Trope yet (one of them is 73 years old, despite physically being a prepubescent) their guardian Alfor certainly does, being 552 years old, which the Children claim is middle-age for their kind.
* The dragon Granamyr from ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983'' is 10,000 years old ''at least''. In one episode, he claimed that was the last time he had a good laugh.
* The lead character in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. Physically, mentally, and emotionally, he is twelve years old, but he was frozen in an iceberg for a ''century''. Technically speaking, other than his friend Bumi, he's the oldest character in the show.
** His age isn't revealed, but [[HermitGuru Guru Pathik]] said that he was a personal friend of Aang's mentor Monk Gyatso, who died nearly one hundred years before the beginning of the series.
** One of Aang's past lives, Avatar Kyoshi, lived to the ripe old age of 230, longer than any other avatar, no icebergs involved.
* Mr. Krabs in ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' appears to be in his 50s at the latest, but the first dime he ever made was a giant rock, implying he's been around since prehistoric times.
