* ''VideoGame/SilentStorm'' has no limitations on the weapons each class can use. From the simple pistols and revolvers, through the rifles, submachine guns and light machine guns to the anti-tank weaponry and eventually [[spoiler: shoulder mounted energy cannons and PowerArmor with rocket launchers and anti-tank rifles]], there's no weapon the Medic cannot use. The Medic skill tree also has a whole group of perks related to fighting with knives. Their outfit actually combines military uniform and medical clothing: a male Axis Medic is basically dressed like a NCO carrying medical stuff on his back, a female Axi Medics wears a white nurse jacket over Wehrmacht pants and shirt, and Allied Medics (both genders) are dressed in British army clothes with a white apron.

* Shamal of ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' is a straight [[TheMedic medic]], but she joins in the battle when needed. Such as the time when she she shoved her arm through [[spoiler:Nanoha]] to save the Wolkenritter. And the PensieveFlashback of the Ancient Belkan era in the [[AllThereInTheManual second Sound Stage]] of ''A's'' which showed her killing a knight who was calling reinforcements. And the time when she captured Otto, the [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Numbers]] [[HollywoodCyborg Cyborg]] in charge of field operations.

* Because the original ''VideoGame/{{X-COM}}'' series lacks any sort of class system or specialization, any soldier can become one of these by carrying a Medkit.

Added DiffLines:

** It's also rare to find a regular mercenary who doesn't have at least ''some'' skill-points in Medicine; not enough to be all that useful in the "Doctor" role out of combat, but sufficient to perform emergency first-aid for a wounded comrade if the actual Medic is too far away.

* For an old lady mage, ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins''' Wynne can be tough as hell. [[spoiler: You can learn this first-hand if you bring her along for The Gauntlet.]] Additionally, if you choose the Spirit Healer specialization, a mage PC or Morrigan can also act the part.

* Adrestia "The Vengeful One" from ''Webcomic/MorphE'' is physically the strongest of the Seedlings and wastes no time showing it off. She awoke as a Thrysus "Life" mage and serves as the party's healer.

* In ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'', the Night Elf Druid of the Claw. They are the faction's primary source of healing with their Rejuvenation spell, they can also Roar to boost the damage of allies or turn into a bear to serve as heavy infantry. And, as one of the strongest melee units in the game (in bear form) who also happen to be able to heal themselves to full health with 12 seconds out of combat, are subject to a lot of [[CompetitiveBalance balance]] complaints.
** The Human Paladin and Undead Death Knight both focus on healing and protecting units. The Paladins Holy Light spell heals a significant amount of health to units, and deal damage to Undead units. While the Death Knights Death Coil spell does it the other way around. The Paladin has the Resurrection ability which brings dead units back to life, while the Death Knights turns dead units into invincible Undead units for a short duration.

Marine... but due to GameplayAndStorySegregation, they have less life than ''Servitors'', the unarmored cyborg WorkerUnit. In Dawn of War 2 they get upgraded to hero status, making them a much more potent foe, while the campaign gives every faction a mass healing/reviving item, giving every commander the potential to be a CombatMedic.
* ''VideoGame/EmpireEarth'': Strategist heroes heal allied units and yell enemies into taking extra damage, but while they can attack, they do pitiful damage (less than the basic infantry of their age) and won't even attack unless specifically ordered to. They're the only source of mobile healing until (non-combat) medics become available... some 20 centuries later.
* ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerGenerals'': The USA's Ambulance heals troops stationed inside it and removes contamination/radiation, and can be given a combat drone as a weapon (being a medical Humvee, it can also run over infantry).

Added DiffLines:

* New German Republic medical officers in ''TabletopGame/{{Rifts}}'' are every bit as well-armed and [[WeWillWearArmorInTheFuture armored]] as any other soldier, and field ambulances are just as armed as any APC. This is because the Gargoyles don't give a damn about Geneva or its conventions.
