* Claudia, the main character in ''Legend of Fae'' has a leg brace due to contracting polio as a child. Fortunately, she can still kick butt using her affinities with the elemental spirits.

* Em in ''Prelude'' is another adult example. She has an unspecified ailment which makes her tire easily and start coughing when she's been outside for too long and which prompted her father to discourage her from singing due to the vocal strain.

* ''VideoGame/AVeryLongRopeToTheTopOfTheSky'': Mint, although, unlike more conventional examples, this doesn't stop her from adventuring with the rest, to the noticeable detriment of her health. Her condition is strongly implied to be genetic (or at least congenital), and the major way it manifests is that she will occasionally just ''collapse'' from too much excitement, strain, or some other strong emotion. [[spoiler:[[KillTheCutie She dies]] [[TearJerker because of this.]]]]
-->'''Mint''': ''[to Ivy]'' [[DontYouDarePityMe I told you to stop using me as an excuse!]]

* Subverted: Ukyo Tachibana from ''VideoGame/SamuraiShodown'' has tuberculosis (IncurableCoughOfDeath and BloodFromTheMouth included), but he remains quite a {{badass}} fighter. [[spoiler: Further subverted as the second game implies that he dies of it, but he reappears in the third.]]

[[spoiler: Further subverted as the second game implies that he dies of it, but he reappears in the third.]]]] Amusingly, his [[PressXToDie Seppuku]] sees him cough and then collapse, as the TB finally finishes the job.



* Similar to the above, Hanbei from ''VideoGame/PokemonConquest'' suffers from tuberculosis (not like the game will state that). Unlike the above example, he keeps it to himself and does what Hideyoshi tells him to do, so at the end of his episode, he starts coughing. When asked what's wrong, Hanbei responds that he got too excited; Kanbei doesn't believe it one bit.
* Akinari Kamiki, the Sun Arcana from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'', is a prospect writer who was born ill, thus his days have been numbered ever since birth. Developing his S-Link is about having him learn to enjoy his last days of life. [[spoiler: He will die before the game is over, leaving the children's book he wrote with the MC's help and encouragement as a TragicKeepsake, and if his link is maxed his soul will cheer on you before you take on Nyx.]]

Added DiffLines:

** A series-wide example would be the quarians, who cannot survive outside of their suits as they have a rather weak immune system, which was even further weakened by three centuries of living aboard sterile spaceships. [[spoiler: they get better if you manage to [[GoldenEnding get them to make peace with the geth during ''Priority: Rannoch'']] and then choose the "Synthesis" or "Control" ending in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' : since the geth do not believe in holding grudges, they welcome their quarian creators back to Rannoch with open arms and upload themselves to the quarians' suits to mimic a variety of diseases and illnesses. As a result, quarians are able to ditch the suits completely ''within a few years'' following the events of the trilogy]].

* John Cassidy from ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 2}}'' suffers from a heart condition, necessitating regular injections of cardio-boosters to keep from having a heart attack. If you give him a chem like Psycho, Buffout, or Jet, it will aggravate the condition to the point of giving him an instant, and fatal, heart attack.

* Saki in ''VideoGame/UncommonTime''. It's subverted in that he's still capable of going adventuring with the heroes, but he's still very frail and sickly, and sometimes collapses and has to be taken care of. [[spoiler:This is in fact very serious; he is terminally ill with a congenital disease and knows he's likely to die soon. He keeps this a secret from the others, but his LoveInterest Meirin finds out anyway. In the GoldenEnding, she promises to find a cure for him; in one of the bad endings, he chooses to commit suicide rather than let the disease catch up to him.]]

* Tomoki in ''{{Canvas 2}}''. However, the surgery she needs is actually quite easy and not that expensive. Not even that risky. She's actually afraid it will work and she'll be lonely.
