* In ''Literature/AllForTheGame'', Kevin's broken hand, expected to be a CareerEndingInjury, wasn't really from a skiing accident. It was actually [[spoiler: Riko's]] fault.

* Subverted in a Series/LawAndOrder episode based on the Tonya-Nancy saga. When a tennis player's wrist is broken, suspicion falls on her rival. It turns out that the girls were actually friends and arranged the attack because she wanted to quit but knew that her [[StageMom Stage Dad]] wouldn't let her otherwise.

* ''Fim/TheKarateKid'' gives one of the most famous examples when the evil instructor orders his student to "sweep the leg" in the semi-finals against Daniel. This means the guy will be disqualified for an illegal hit, but injury will prevent Daniel from facing the instructor's prize pupil in the actual Final Round, guaranteeing victory. The plan only fails because Mr Miyagi has HealingHands and Daniel has learned the iconic Crane Stance that lets him keep his weight off the injured leg.

* In HappyGilmore, Shooter's psychotic and devoted fan hits Happy with a car during the final showdown. The injury doesn't prevent him from competing, but it does eliminate his incredible long shot, forcing Happy to rely more on the skills he's been developing for his short game.
* First discussed, then played with, then played straight in AKnightsTale:

--> '''Count Adhemar:''' "How would you beat him?"
--> '''Advisor:''' "With a stick. While he slept. But on a horse, with a lance? That man is unbeatable."
** Following this, Adhemar plays with the trope by striking at Will ''politically'', exposing him as a false-knight so he can't compete. When ''that'' doesn't work (because Will actually gets knighted), Adhemar resorts to straight up cheating by using actual pointed lances ''disguised'' as the tournament-legal blunted ones. The stabbing injury he inflicts on Will with one forces him to shed his armor and risk ''death'' to continue competing.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode "Flight to the Finish", Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon ''emotionally'' cripple Scootaloo so that they can win a contest to carry the flag at the Equestrian Games instead of the Cutie Mark Crusaders.

Crusaders. Notably, their insults are more biting and hurtful, something they acknowledged because their usual throwing of the "blank flank" slur wasn't working anymore.
