* Parodied in an episode of ''Series/BigTimeRush''. Logan, the band's resident HollywoodNerd, decides to become cooler by downloading a "Swag-O-Meter" app which teaches him how to be popular and fun. James, the PrettyBoy of the group, naturally has a high level of swag...but as Logan becomes more and more awesome, he inadvertently [[VampiricDraining sucks the coolness directly out of James]], leaving him physically weak and sickly. It's all PlayedForLaughs, especially when Logan decides he doesn't like being cool anymore and deletes the app, which somehow immediately returns James to normal.

* [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Castiel]] of ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' becomes one near the end of season 9, due to [[spoiler:the Grace he stole from another angel slowly burning out]]. By the start of season 10, he's progressed to an IncurableCoughOfDeath and is exhausted most of the time. Tellingly, he was even involved in a NoodleIncident in which he not only failed to keep a demon from hurting Sam, but apparently didn't or wasn't able to heal Sam afterwards.

* Beautifully subverted on ''Series/SheSpies'' when the girl figure a charity group is a front for a criminal enterprise. DD gets close to the little girl in the wheelchair who's the poster child for the charity. DD is thus stunned when the girl stabs her with a drugged needle. Meanwhile, their boss goes through records and sees that the exact same girl has been used for the charity's posters going back a decade. It turns out she's not only the mastermind of the scheme but actually in her 30s with a genetic disorder that halted her aging. The gals stop the gang from escaping with DD hauling the "girl" out of her wheelchair and berating her for taking advantage of people and mocking actually sick kids. She then lets the woman drop...at which point, it turns out that while she was lying about her age, the woman really did need the wheelchair.
