* Yuzuha in ''{{Utawarerumono}}'', who is actually something of a MacGuffin - her brother Oboro's theft of the outrageously expensive medicine she needs to survive is the start of a chain of events which snowball into an international war.

** [[spoiler: In the third installment of the Utawarerumono franchise, it's revealed that her daughter [[VideoGame/UtawarerumonoItsuwariNoKamen Kuon]] of all people inherited the disease from her, though thanks to her [[PhysicalGod father's blood]] in her [[SemiDivine veins]], it isn't as fatal, but she'll suffer relapses from it every now and then.]] Very surprising considering her healthy disposition and attitude in the second game.

* Although KeyVisualArts is well-known for its ill girls (see above), ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters'' has two male examples [[spoiler:and no real female examples, as while Mio is very delicate and seems sickly at first, her issues are very different.]] Most obviously there's Riki, the very {{Moe}} protagonist, who suffers from narcolepsy. [[spoiler:And secondly there's Komari's older brother, who suffered a deadly disease that killed him when Komari was only a small child.]]

* KeyVisualArts has at least one, sometimes more, in every game. They use this trope so often that fans have started jokingly referring to any SoapOperaDisease as [[MemeticMutation KeyAIDS]].

* Viola Cadaverini from AceAttorney looks like one given her pale and creepy/sickly appearance as well as the bandage on her head. She's a bit of a subversion though since the bandage is due to an injury [[spoiler: that she got in a ''massive'' accident caused by her sort-of love interest Furio Tigre]] and it is implied that she is just a frail woman by physical nature, not illness.

* In VisualNovel/TrueLoveJunaiMonogatari, we have local artist Miyuki Tanaka. She has anemia and a very low threshold for either extreme heat or vigorous physical activity, leading her to pass out while on the sidelines of the swimming competition if she shows up there [[spoiler: and kinda worries the PlayerCharacter during their sex scene.]]

* Hiroki from ''VisualNovel/PrivateNurse''. However, there are implications that [[spoiler: his sickness is at least as much psychosomatic as physiological and that he needs to convince himself that he can get better.]]

* Toko in ''KaraNoShoujo'' is anemic and spends a lot of time sleeping. She also requires some special medicine. All in all, though, it's not too bad [[spoiler:until Mizuhara thinks it's some sort of drug, steals it and Toko ends up getting hit by a truck when she passes out.]]
* ''{{Ever 17}}'' features two: [[spoiler: Yubiseiharukana (the You from Takeshi's path)]] who has a terminal heart condition and [[spoiler: Coco Yagami]] who has [[IncurableCoughOfDeath Tief Blau]].

** Additional materials reveal the existence of another ill girl: [[spoiler: Kirei Kotomine's dead wife, [[http://typemoon.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_minor_characters_in_the_Fate_series#Hortensia Claudia Hortensia]], an inmuno-deficient MysteriousWaif who passed away two/three years after they got hitched. (In a subversion, she actually commited suicide in a desperate gambit to prove him that he wasn't as unfeeling as he thought -- then again, Claudia ''was'' already dying so she wouldn't have lasted much longer anyway).]]
* Miyu Shizuhara from ''{{Crescendo}}''. Her illness isn't specified, but it requires her to stay at the hospital for a good part of her route. [[spoiler: And she does NOT get better.]]
* All the main girls in ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo''; in fact, the game started out as an attempt by TheImageBoardThatMustNotBeNamed to create the videogame with the highest Ill Girl count possible. Though [[SubvertedTrope ironically enough]], only the male protagonist's condition is actually life-threatening, since the heroines are all in some way physically disabled but otherwise healthy. There is one Ill Girl that plays this trope straight: Saki Enomoto from the Aprils Fool "Event", whose disease (spinocerebellar ataxia) [[YourDaysAreNumbered will eventually kill her]].

* ''DaCapoII'': There is a double example in one route: [[spoiler: Anzu. Said girl was the first to fall ill, then comes the protagonist boy's turn. They both spoon spoonfeed soup to each other when the other one lies sick in bed.]]

* ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'' has Akane Kurashiki a.k.a. June, who is very disturbed by the events of the game and breaks out into severe fevers at several points. [[spoiler:They are caused by Junpei straying off the path that leads to the GoldenEnding and creating a TemporalParadox that incinerates her nine years prior.]]
