* Rory Mercury does this for Youji in ''{{Literature/Gate}}'' prior to their second fight with a deadly Fire Dragon. During the battle, he gets beaten pretty badly, but it doesn't seem to slow him down much. After they finish off the dragon however, Rory's suffered ClothingDamage, and looks like she took quite a beating, due to the damage Youji suffered transferring to her.

* In ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'', Hazduhr the Abbot can redirect damage from allied white creatures to himself, while Kor creatures (also in white) have an inverted version - they can shunt damage they take to other allied creatures.

* Scheris Adjani's alter power in ''SCRYed'' has this as a primary ability, though it's only invoked once, when [[spoiler: sacrificing herself in order to bring Ryuhou back to life]].

* This is how the Healer character class works in ''RoleMaster'' -- the spells learned are a free-form [[EmpathicHealer Empathic Healing]] list and lots of spells for healing yourself. Notable in that while HeroicSacrifice is possible, there's actually a spell that allows you to [[BackFromTheDead raise the dead]] by ''giving up your own soul'' during the transfer process and then (while soulless) casting the spell to reclaim it.

* In the text-based MMORPG, ''VideoGame/DragonRealms'', the healing class is called the [[ExactlyWhatItIsSaysOnTheTin Empath]]. An [=Empath=] could take damage from a particular limb, scaring, and even nervous system damage.

* ''DragonQuestIX'' has the H-Pathy and [[{{Pun}} M-Pathy]] skills, which transfers part of the user's HP/MP to the target, though H-Pathy isn't really worth a healing spell.

* Bactine of ''LinT's'' healing abilities work this way; she takes the subject's wounds into her body and then heals herself. Eventually she [[spoiler: sacrifices her own life by healing a terminally ill character and the dying protagonist in succession.]] * Little-known sprite comic ''Webcomic/PatchworkHeroes'' has one of the characters able to heal others. In an interesting subversion of the whole "save a dying person by sacrificing yourself" business, she was able to save her lover from mortal wounds by only absorbing ''some'' of them, just enough that they both survived with grievous injuries.

Expect there to be one point when [[HeroicSacrifice they have to decide whether or not to heal someone with definitely fatal injuries]].

* In ''Fanfic/HopeForTheHeartless'', there exists [[FunctionalMagic a certain prayer]] done directly to [[CosmicEntities the Fates]] themselves. It allows the prayer to transfer the pain of someone else into themselves. But only the pain is transferred, not the cause of it. The prayer is used by [[PurityPersonified Avalina]] onto [[Disney/TheBlackCauldron the Horned King]] after he [[VillainousRescue saves]] her from drowning and the [[WeaksauceWeakness water]] left inside his system leaves him in a very painful state. While she ends up in a painful state for hours, the water remains inside the Horned King, who is [[AngerBornOfWorry both angry and worried for her]] doing that after nearly drowning. The prayer reads like this:

Added namespaces.
* In ''{{Drowtales}}'', Faen (and, it's implied, a good part of her family) have this power. It's not clear if she can die by healing, though.

Added another example. May also be an inversion of the trope, idk.

* ''Series/{{Warehouse13}}'' featured Mary Mallon's Butcher's Knife in one episode, which can transfer injury and illness both ways. It was eventually used by a man who stole it to give himself his dying son's cancer, saving his son but dooming himself.
