* One of the pre-built classes usually included in ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' games is that of Healer but the class is titular at best; in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'', a Healer was one of the least encountered stock enemies in dungeons.

* One ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** Healers have long served in the [[BadassArmy Imperial Legion]], using [[WhiteMagic Restoration magic]] to heal wounded soldiers. [[MilitaryMage Battlemages]] are also trained for the duty, as seen during the Imperial invasion of [[{{Wutai}} Akavir]], but are used only as a last resort as their [[{{Mana}} Magicka]] is better spent [[MagicKnight offensively]]. Plenty of other military forces throughout Tamriel are known to employ Healers as well. Given [[GrimUpNorth the dangers faced by simply living in Skyrim]], these Healers usually have the ability to defend themselves in some way.

The class is titular at best; in best, as the [[EverythingIsTryingToKillYou nature of series]] largely does not allow for {{Pacifist Run}}s, meaning you'll need some ability to kill enemies to succeed.

** As shown prominently in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', the [[HornyVikings Nords]], a ProudWarriorRace through and through, have a [[DoesNotLikeMagic strong cultural dislike]] for magic and magic users. The one exception they make is for Healers, as their way of life means that Skyrim always needs more Healers.

* Several countries and their respective branches of service, including for example the [[YanksWithTanks United States Army]] and the [[SemperFi Marine Corps]], issue the majority of their soldiers with at least a bare minimum of first aid supplies (and training), so that every soldier can apply this trope [[ProperlyParanoid just in case]].

* The healer classes in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' are built around being able to do just as much damage as a caster with their Cleric Stance ability, which switches their healing stat (mind) with their offensive magic stat (int). You're taught very early on that healing isn't all you should be expected to do, and many players are happy when a healer can balance both keeping the party alive and doling out damage (though there's no shame if you can't, because you might not be geared enough).

* Magnus Chase of ''Literature/MagnusChaseAndTheGodsOfAsgard''. As a son of the Vanir, Frey, he's less naturally combat oriented than demigod children of Aesir like Thor or Odin, working better as a medic with his HealingHands. He still manages to keep up with his friends with his Einherji SuperStrength and his sword, [[AbsurdlySharpBlade Sumarbrandr]], a.k.a [[EmpathicWeapon Jack]].

* In ''{{VideoGame/Foxhole}}'', playing medic is sometimes forgotten in favor of stocking your RespawnPoint structures, but the field hospital allows you to manufacture medical supplies for the front lines. Any player can stock up with first aid kits to heal their teammates and trauma kits to allow them to stabilize dying allies. Nothing stops you from hauling weapons along other than having to deal with encumbrance and the trauma kit occupying the main weapon slot.
