* From ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'', there's Morgana. He learns the most diverse line of healing spells throughout the game, including Salvation, which fully restores party HP and cures negative status effects. In addition, he also has passable Strength and decent Agility, though his [[BlowYouAway wind magic spells]] are somewhat weak.

* Clighal from the ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'' is both the Jedi Order's chief medic and able to take down an insane Jedi in about five seconds flat.
* Played with in the case of Malcolm from ''Literature/RangersApprentice.'' While an ActionSurvivor who hates harming others, he is quite capable of protecting himself with usage of illusions and home-made flashbang grenades.

** There's also [[MagicalNativeAmerican ''Injun Joe'']] [[VoluntaryShapeshifting Listens-To-Wind]], [[BadassGrandpa member of the Senior Council]] and all-round CoolOldGuy (born in the early 1800's), who still goes back to medical school every few years to keep his knowledge up-to-date.

** 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.

** 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.

* TheLawsAndCustomsOfWar dictate that in order to hold noncombatant status and be entitled to bear the Red Cross, hospital ships must be totally unarmed, even purely defensive systems like Phalanx CIWS being forbidden. This has presented something of a problem in modern times, as the Red Cross means nothing to a guided missile that misses its intended target and locks onto the first ship it sees. As a result, the Royal Navy, who learned the "indiscriminate missiles" lesson the hard way when the ''Atlantic Conveyor'' was sunk during UsefulNotes/TheFalklandsWar, has bit the bullet and fitted its [[InsistentTerminology "Primary Casualty Reception Ship"]] RFA ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RFA_Argus_%28A135%29 Argus]]'' with a couple of point-defence guns.
