There are many Chiranjeevis or Immortals in Hindu Mythology. Of these 8 are considered to be prime in this Kali Yuga.

The Chiranjeevis are named using the following verses:-

अश्वत्थामा बलिर्व्यासः हनूमांश्च विभीषण:।
कृप: परशुरामश्च सप्तैते चिरजीविन:॥
सप्तैतान् संस्मरेन्नित्यं मार्कण्डेयमथाष्टमम्।
जीवेद्वर्षशतं सोपि सर्वव्याधिविवर्जित॥

Ashwathhama, Emperor Mahabali, Sage Veda Vyasa, Lord Hanuman, Vibhishana, Kripa, Lord Parashurama, and Sage Markandeya are the 8 prime Chiranjeevis.
