* Zigzagged in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/AladdinTheSeries''. The illness that Genie gets ''is'' DefinitelyJustACold, but the problem is, when genies get colds, [[PowerIncontinence they can't control their magic]]. ''Big'' problem. So while Jasmine has to watch over a sick genie whose magic threatens to level the city (and in one scene, launches about ten {{Baleful Polymorph}}s at her in a row in a fit of sneezing) Aladdin has to find a gemstone that can cure in a forbidden temple guarded by a divine, golden guardian, without Genie's help. (Fortunately, the guardian [[RiddlingSphinx prefers brainteasers to physical fighting]].)

* Happens in ''[[TraumaCenter Trauma Team]]'' during a Diagnosis mission. Joshua tries to claim nothing is wrong with him. The nurse is not fooled. Neither is Gabe. [[spoiler: Much to Gabe's dismay, he has Werner's Syndrome.]]
** Also happens in an earlier Diagnosis. Jacob Tillman constantly claims nothing is wrong with him. Unlike Joshua, who eventually admits he's not well, he fights you to the end, claiming that nothing is wrong. Turns out, [[spoiler: he has a serious heart condition.]]

* This is subverted with Belkar from Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick. After his [[RestrainingBolt Mark of Justice]] is activated, he experiences severe vomiting and can barely walk. Haley is about to ditch him as a liability, when the group crosses the boundary of a memory charm. Now none of them can remember that Belkar activated the Mark of Justice, and his sickness is written off as a bad cold or similar.

* In ''Arrow's Fall'' of the ''HeraldsOfValdemar'' series, Herald Dirk claims his respiratory symptoms are this, after weeks of self-destructive behavior including [[DrowningMySorrows drinking heavily]], standing hopelessly outside in the rain, and generally being miserable. He does this for two reasons: he's pining with unrequited love for Herald Talia, whom he mistakenly believes to be in a LoveTriangle with his best friend, Kris; and he's trying to cope with the tragic death of a trainee who was under his instruction. The fact that the person who is most suited to help him sort out this mess is [[TheEmpath Talia]], the person he least wants to face in person, compounds the problem, which lasts until he collapses... from pneumonia. The Healers who attend him as he recovers spare no effort in telling him what an idiot he was being.

This may be used for one or more {{Sick Episode}}s. This may develop into either a SoapOperaDisease or an IncurableCoughOfDeath. If caused by contact with the bad guys, it may be AllergicToEvil. Often used as an excuse by a ZombieInfectee in denial. Opposite of MistakenForDying.
