How old does a character need to be to be considered this trope? Is 30 old? 40? 50? 65+?

I'm kind of wondering, seems a bit ambiguous.

I don't think that this gets specific numbers.

I guess my point is that I tend to see this listed for characters that aren't really old by most standards.

For example, a 30-something in a show where most of the other characters are in their 20s. or someone in their 20s in a show where most other characters are teens. It would be old in a relative sense, but most people wouldn't consider this old. Does a character qualify if they're only old relative to other characters?

I'm not sure this should have real life examples

You and everyone on the disscussion page. Add it yourself..

But don't say "How Did We Miss This One?" when you do.
