* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'': GadgeteerGenius Jericho is designing his Rafe PoweredArmor (named for Raphael, the archangel of healing) for use by medics, [=EMTs=], and search/rescue units. While the 'standard' version isn't armed, he did give it hardpoints which could mount either lifesaving equipment or weapons, and his own armor is equipped with a [[HyperSpaceArsenal teleportation rig]] that can summon some of the most lethal hardware the more weapon-oriented Devisors and Gadgeteers at the school could come up with - and for a supposedly blind guy, he's a damn good shot.

* Ryu in ''[[BreathOfFire Breath of Fire III]]'' is the game's primary healer. He is also the main character, and can double as a tank (although Garr and Momo are better used for this purpose.)
** ''BreathOfFireII'''s Ryu was also one of that game's many healers -- although roughly half the characters in that game could heal to some degree.

* In ''VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm'', almost all of the Support-based heroes are focused around healing. Even more so, when each of the Support-based heroes can choose one out of two [[LimitBreak Heroic abilities]]. Here are some notable examples:
** [[VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft Li Li Stormstout and Malfurion Stormrage]] are among the easiest Support heroes around, but Li Li can blind enemies making them briefly miss their attacks, and she possess Heroics that can either heal everyone in an area or massively damage and slows nearby enemies, while Malfurion can summon roots to entangle opponents, and his Heroics can either be an aura that heals allies close to him or an [=AoE=] blast that damages and silences enemies.
** Even [[Franchise/{{Starcraft}} Lt. Rosa Morales]] stretches [[CripplingOverspecialization this trope]], as her only offensive skill is a grenade blast that knocks away enemies, while the rest of her kit is entirely dedicated to supporting, including healing.
** [[VideoGame/{{Diablo}} Kharazim]] is the closest thing to this trope. His passives can be customized to either gain mana, deal more damage, or even heal a nearby ally, all while attacking a certain amount of times. His heroics are either to heal an ally at the brink of death or become invincible and hit opposing heroes seven times in an area.

* The [[AllThereInTheManual guidebook]] for ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' states there is a division of the [[RedShirtArmy Survey Corps]] that are combat medics. While not explicitly featured thus far, it is safe to assume members are skilled soldiers -- they have to be, to have survived for any length of time in the branch with the lowest survival rates. Hange, Petra, and Krista have all been shown administering emergency treatment to comrades on occasion and are all {{Badass}}es in their own right.

* Alastair Kornbock from ''DocSidhe'' is a world-class surgeon who has no problems being on the frontline of Doc's fight against evil. As he explains, the Fair World's equivalent of the Hippocratic Oath only applies to patients, and the people he fights don't become his patients until after he shoots them.

* Many of the ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' games either give you the option of mixing and matching classes to create these, or give healers bows or other weapons they can use from the safety of the back row so they can contribute ''some'' damage when not healing. And then, later in the game, there's the [[HolyHandGrenade Holy]] spell...
