* In ''Anime/ThreeThousandLeaguesInSearchOfMother'' (and the story that was its basis), one of the reasons why [[KidHero Marco Rossi]] is so desperate to find his mother Anna is that her last letter implies that her health's is decaying. Which means she might never come back home. [[spoiler: When Marco finally finds her, she's so ill and so depressed that she's rejecting one last operation that could save her life, despite the pleas of her doctor and her benevolent bosses. Seeing Marco again gives Anna the strength to go through the surgery, and she's saved.]]

* ''Manga/InnocentsShounenJuujigun'' subverts this with Etienne's companion Remy, who has the kind and gentle personality to a T... but his illness is Hansen's disease aka ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leprosy leprosy]]'', which has BodyHorror-like consequences on him and forces him to cover his body with bandages. He joins the Children's Crusades in hopes of finding a cure, but his health keeps getting worse... [[spoiler: By the time he dies his body is '''literally''' falling apart, as seen in how his nose is missing and his face has rotten away.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/GargantiaOnTheVerdurousPlanet'' has [[WiseBeyondHisYears Bebel]], younger brother to [[TheHeart Amy]]. He has some sort of lung problem that keeps him mostly bedridden, and otherwise he's usually in a wheelchair to keep from overexerting himself. Part of [[AntiHero Ledo]]'s character growth comes from realizing that back in the Galactic Federation, Bebel would have been summarily euthanized [[spoiler:like Ledo's own brother]].

* Kosumo Koganehara from MichiyoAkaishi's ''Manga/TowaKamoShirenai'' was born with a [[HeartTrauma a weak heart]], and in fact the manga starts when she has a seizure during her treatment in the USA and needs an urgent transplant, but her extremely rare blood type doesn't allow for an easy one. The donor that saves her life just ''happens'' to be Himiko, a {{Miko}} and MagicalGirlWarrior who has just died via an HeroicSacrifice to save a child, so Kosumo inherits her powers alongside her heart and blood and must take up her demon slaying mission - with the help of Himiko's TallDarkAndHandsome guardian, Hitsuji.

** Trafalgar Law was gravely ill for most of his childhood, due to the Amber Lead Syndrome (a illness similar to asbestos that killed Law's family and people due to the world Government negligence). Law was the SoleSurvivor of his town and was so broken by it that he became a CreepyChild, whose only wish was to kill as many people as possible before dying. Doquixote Doflamingo took Law in and, in EvilMentor style, raised him as a killer... but Doflamingo's younger brother Rocinante took pity on Law and traveled all over to find him his cure, despite Law trying to kill him when they met. He succeeded and got Law to eat the Ope-Ope fruit, which saved his life... [[spoiler: but wasn't fast enough to save ''his'' own life, and died at the hand of his cruel older brother (who not only wanted the Ope-Ope fruit for his own gain, but was ''already'' pissed off after finding out that Rocinante was TheMole for the Marines). This was terrible for the now healthy Law, who had grown to love [[BigBrotherMentor Rocinante]] like an older brother, and ultimately gave him his biggest purpose in life: to become a pirate '''and kill Doflamingo'''.]]

* In the original ''Literature/TheSecretGarden'', Colin Craven isn't ill per se but is weak and gets sick a lot from spending all his time shut up in his room, never leaving his bed and having hysterical tantrums. In the AnimatedAdaptation, ''Himitsu no hanazono'', Colin still throws tantrums and holes up in his room, but ''is'' genuinely sickly. [[spoiler: And he is at least once in the verge of death.]]

* Captain Jushiro Ukitake from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' may fit this trope. He's been suffering from tuberculosis all his life, which makes him spew blood if he exerts himself too much, turned his hair white, and causes him to spend most of his time in bed. (Although since he's over two thousand years old, it's obvious he isn't dying from it... Unless he's dying ''very, very slowly''). [[spoiler: 616 explains that he ''should'' have died when he was young, but thanks to his parents's please to alocal god named "Mimihagi-sama", he survived... but in exchange for his life, his lungs suffered badly. Hence, the IncurableCoughOfDeath and BloodFromTheMouth he's been plagued with ''through all his life''.]]

** [[spoiler: As Nodt from the Vandenreich]] turns out to have been this in the past. [[spoiler: A flashback reveals that before he met Yhwach, he was but an ill bedridden man, barely able to breathe and fearfully awaiting his death [[FateWorseThanDeath while simultaneously proclaiming how he hates living like that.]] When Rukia finally slays him with her Bankai, his last thoughts are filled with this old fear.

* Subverted with Izumi Curtis from ''Manga/FullMetalAlchemist'': a [[EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette pale]], slender, [[SexyMentor attractive]] IronWoobie with frequent attacks of BloodFromTheMouth [[spoiler: as a result of having tried human transmutation to being back her stillborn child, and losing her inner organs to The Truth as a result.]]. It's sometimes PlayedForLaughs when she coughs up blood on someone who upsets her, she can kick that someone's ass, {{bears|AreBadNews}}' asses, and her [[HugeGuyTinyGirl gigantic]] [[BigBeautifulMan husband]]'s ass, and it generally need not be said that no one [[DontYouDarePityMe should just pity her]], because she's so fierce. Also, [[spoiler:she gets better... though only in the manga and the ''Brotherhood'' series, as in the first anime she passes away in between the events of the GrandFinale and TheMovie.]]

** Rocinante and Doflamingo's mother had a bad health, which got even worse after the patriarch of the Doquixote family [[DefectorFromDecadence left the World Nobles to live among the populace]] [[RagstoRiches and they lost everything]]. She ultimately died of her illness, [[EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas which Doflamingo]] blamed on their father and, among other things, led him [[SelfMadeOrphan to kill]] [[PatriCide his dad]].
*** Senor Pink's wife Russian became a catatonic EmptyShell after [[OutlivingOnesOffspring she lost her baby son]] ''and'' found out her husband was a pirate, and could only smile when Pink dressed up like a baby. She's strongly implied to have died of a broken heart and her bad health.
** [[spoiler: Vinsmoke Sora, Sanji's mother, ''made herself sick'' as a side-effect of a risky gambit she took. As her husband [[ArchnemesisDad Judge]] genetically modified her quadruplet sons while they were in her womb, so that they'd be souless [[ChildSoldiers killing machines]], Sora desperately tried to counter this and took a drug to nulify the changes; as a side-effect her health took a nosedive from then on, but she was overjoyed to see that Sanji had turned out [[WhiteSheep decent]], and doted on him and his sister Reiju before passing away.]]
** Nami falls ill after [[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs Little Garden]] when a she's bitten on her mid drift by a prehistoric bug, she gets dangerously high fever and the journey to Alabasta is put on hold as they find a doctor. Though that meant Luffy and Sanji must take her up a freezing cold DeathMountain, but Nami is cured just in time, three days later she'd be dead.
*** [[spoiler:Considering Usopp and Sanji's mothers both died viva sickness, it's a small wonder they had a OhCrap moment when Nami became bedridden.]]
