* In ''VideoGame/MordheimCityOfTheDamned'', much like the TabletopGame/{{Mordheim}} tabletop game, troops can suffer permanent debilitating injuries and it's usually best to retire your gravely-injured fighters and replace them with "intact" raw recruits unless they're highly experienced or you're just really attached to them. Having a grizzled old HandicappedBadass SergeantRock with a peg leg, gouged eye, mutilated hand and a permanently crazed look on her face from that skull fracture, beating Skaven to death with a [[EpicFlail giant flail]] is certainly cool, but her multiple wounds will affect her combat performance considerably, plus she won't be able to climb walls.

After a third and final surgery she was put on complete bed rest for a full year. She went on to become one of the greatest prima ballerinas in history.
