* The first season of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}} used this trope quite a lot, such as when Ash first meets Charmander and when Pikachu needs medicinal attention after getting mobbed by Spearows in the first episode. As the seasons went by, depictions of Pokémon sustaining very serious injuries became less common, causing this trope to be used less frequently than it once did.

Added DiffLines:

* In almost every ''Manga/DeathNote'' fanfic where the topic of Mello's burn scar comes up (especially those of the {{Yaoi}} variety), the one who treated the burn was Matt, and in their dingy little apartment, no less! In spite of the fact that Matt is not known to have any medical training, although considering that he ''did'' study at Wammy's House, it ''is'' possible that he has at least some. (He usually doesn't have any medical knowledge in these fics, though.) Very often in these fics, not only does Matt treat Mello's burn wound, he also is the one to dig Mello out of the rubble from the explosion. (Usually, though not always, coming out unscathed himself.) Rarely, Matt gets him to some BackAlleyDoctor. Somewhat justified in that there's no way Mello could have gone to a regular hospital under the circumstances, as a fugitive from the law.
