* ''TigerAndBunny'': Superpowers in this series are like muscles; practice using them and you gain stronger powers, but overtax them and they'll burn themselves out faster, or even permanently break.

* Bruce from ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' gives up crime fighting due to a heart condition. On its own it probably wouldn't mean much, but the circumstances caused him to [[BatmanGrabsAGun point a gun at someone]].

* ''WesternAnimation/ObanStarRacers'': Rick Thunderbolt, the original earth team pilot, is seriously injured in his first race, leaving him with a nervous system that freezes up at inopportune moments. After some episodes moping about it he eventually agrees to help train Molly as his replacement.

* This trope is used in ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' The Bronze Kneecap explains that tripping over The Crimson Chin's titular facial feature was what caused him to injure his knee and ended his career. He subsequently smelts all of his bronze trophies and makes them into his villain costume.Timmy views this as a major overreaction and The Bronze Kneecap responds that The Crimson Chin never even said he was sorry.
** It should also be noted that Timmy unwittingly did the same thing to Mr.Bickles during the episode and manages to evade such extreme repercussions by apologizing and effectively TalkingTheMonsterToDeath. (Although Timmy didn't actually injure Mr Bickles. He just put on a better magic act and consequently drove him out of business. ) It's hard to feel sorry for him given that he's basically a spoof of the WideEyedIdealist who has a new "Dream" every single solitary episode. The fact that Timmy ruined one out of countless and merely by [[AlwaysSomeoneBetter being better at it]] makes Mr. Bickles seem like a stupid selfish baby.

** This trope is played with in yet another episode. In this one, Timmy cannot sing his part for Mr Bickles play because he needs his tonsils taken out. That doesn't stop him from trying to sing anyway, but does Mr Bickles take it well when Timmy fails due to his aching throat? No. He just drops to his knees and whines about his so-called dream being ruined. This time someone else's career is "Ended" by someone else's illness.

* In the World War 2 series ''The Attackers'', one of the female pilots is shot down but manages to crash land her plane. However, in addition to a bullet wound to the shoulder she also suffers a nasty head injury. The doctors tell her that the brain injury will make her incapable of flying in combat again. She is reassigned to a flight school as an instructor but subverts this trope by tricking another doctor into giving her a clean bill of health and is sent back to her squadron where she continues to fly combat missions. However, in the last episode of the series, this trope is double subverted when the injury catches up to her, she blacks out in the cockpit and is killed.

* This is revealed as the back story reason for why Jack Krauser faked his death and defected to Wesker's side in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilTheDarkSideChronicles''. Krauser used to be a special ops soldier who worked alongside Leon but during the course of the mission, a viral entity crippled his arm. Krauser eventually sought out Wesker, who provided a way to heal his arm; out of gratitude, Krauser now serves Wesker as his special agent (even got a sweet mutated arm blade out of the deal).

* In ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'', [[TheCape All Might]] suffered a major injury fighting a certain villain that left a large, nasty-looking gash on the left side of his body. The damage it did to him severely limited the amount of time he can sustain his "muscle form", which is what prompts him to try and find a successor, though it doesn't actually end his career. [[spoiler:Later in the series he has a FinalBattle with [[EvilCounterpart All For One]], the villain who injured him in the first place, and finally overtaxes his powers to the point where he can't use them for more than a few moments at a time, forcing him to retire from heroics permanently (though he stays on at UA as a teacher).]]
