* The cures holding Velvare together in ''Webcomic/TheSilverEye''. They does a good job, for the most part, [[spoiler: considering he's supposed to be dead]] but sometimes Melete's magic is weakened, and he starts to fall apart again. The worst is in Chapter 10 when he's gone 8 straight days without sleep, and his cuts are bleeding so much, they completely soak through his clothes.

* In Furrae, the main setting of WebComic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures, being cursed by a Fae is surprisingly useful! Fae mark their intended victims with shiny wrist bangles as a reminder that they plan on cursing them in future (once they think of the perfect curse to use), and [[http://www.missmab.com/Comics/Vol_846.php they HATE to have a recipient die before they've gotten around to cursing them properly]]. As a result, it's possible to put a curse mark on someone in order to protect them, leaving them with bangles for a long time before delivering the actual curse. Though [[http://www.missmab.com/Comics/Vol_1027.php that's not the only strange idea]] the Fae have for protecting their mortal friends...
-->'''Albanion:''' You know what would protect your friends? Statues.
-->'''Mab:''' ...I'm not turning my friends into statues, Albanion.
-->'''Albanion:''' What about topiary? Think of the gardening magazines!

* There are occasional, mostly unverified rumors of people who infect themselves with autoimmune diseases as a means of curing blood cancer, or the other way around, the two diseases supposedly "cancelling each other off" in some fashion.

to:

* If someone in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' is stuck with a curse that they're unable to break, one option is to take on a second curse, which supersedes the effects of the older spell. Hardly ideal, but if fell magic is sapping your mind, cursing yourself with something like infertility is pretty benign by comparison.

* The Legion in ''TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening'' are mages who summon Abyssal spirits to consume and replace their body parts in exchange for {{Lovecraftian Superpower}}s. Some of the most powerful members replace their ''brains'', rendering themselves immune to any form of mortal madness. Given the kind of people who join the Legion and where they tend to fall on the game's {{Sanity|Meter}}/KarmaMeter, letting an unnatural being from beyond the walls of reality do their thinking for them is generally an improvement.

* In ''Series/{{iZombie}}'', Liv infects [[spoiler:Major]] to save [[spoiler:him]] from a mortal wound. [[spoiler:He]] is not appreciative at all, so Liv injects [[spoiler:him]] with the remains of the cure ([[spoiler:it's later revealed that the cure is only temporary]]).

* ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' has a perk "Rad Child" that makes radiation this. The healing from the perk is so potent the character can virtually absord incoming damage at higher irradiation levels. They, however, still fully experience the rather drastic penalties from irradiation, including instant death once it reaches a cap.
