* Beatrix from ''VideoGame/{{Battleborn}}'' was born with a terminal disease that gave her a very weak body, a thing that is looked down upon by Jennerit society which greatly values strength. Because of this, she originally didn't have long to live. However thanks to her mother's lobbying to have Beatrix sustained for her genius, Beatrix was made immortal and became something like ''SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}}'', an immortal stuck with an otherwise sickly body. Excerpts from her diary from the lore in [[https://forums.gearboxsoftware.com/t/battleplan-32-12-22-16/1552633 Battleplan 32]] reveal her thoughts about her illness.

-->There once was a girl named Trix\\
Whose body nobody could fix—\\
She went to the doctor\\
Who stabbed her and stocked her\\
With every pill in the mix.

* 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.]] Amusingly, his [[PressXToDie Seppuku]] sees him cough and then collapse, as the TB finally finishes the job.

* The quarians from ''Franchise/MassEffect'' are a ''species'' of Ill People. Since their forced exile from their homeworld 300 years before the events of the games, quarian immune systems (which were already weaker than those other species) have deteriorated to the point that all quarians must wear [[LatexSpaceSuit environmental suits]] at all times just so they don't die. ''Every'' quarian Shepard meets in the games--from WrenchWench party member Tali'Zorah to {{Badass}} marine Kal'Reegar to the valley girl complaining about her boyfriend on Illium--is one suit breach away from potentially deadly sickness. That said, [[DontyouDarePityMe they don't appreciate the stereotype:]]

** In ''FireEmblem 7'', [[GentleGiant Dorcas]]'s wife and VictoriousChildhoodFriend in an ill girl named Natalie, who has had problems in her leg ever since she was a little girl. One of the earlier missions is to keep her safe her inside of some abandoned ruins, and if Lyn talks to her husband who is in the enemy group, you can make him defect and [[HeelFaceTurn join your group]].
** In ''FireEmblem 8'', [[spoiler: Orson's wife Monica]] was an ill girl who died prior to the story. [[spoiler: Her husband loved her so much that [[DespairEventHorizon he fell into utter and complete despair]], [[LoveMakesYouEvil and defected to Grado when given the chance to have her revived]].]]

* 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.]]]]

* 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.]]

** 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.
