* ACertainMagicalIndex has an extremely bizarre relationship with this trope through the main character Touma. It seems if an ally deals a crushing blow to him, he'll be unable to continue fighting and will fall, but if an enemy is fighting him, he can lose a whole arm and be bleeding out and still move and talk like absolutely nothing is wrong. The animation indicates he's suffering from his injuries, but he never shows any fatigue or damage from blows that would naturally kill a person until '''after''' he wins.

* Toward the end of ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' [[spoiler:[[BigBad Kylo Ren]] takes a near-direct blast from Chewie's boltcaster. He still puts up an [[BadAss incredible fight]] (considering that most people hit by that thing are blown across the room ''in pieces''), but it puts him off his game enough that Finn is able to hold his own with a lightsaber against him for a brief period and Rey was actually able to [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome take him down]].]]

* [[TheBeautifulGame Football]] player Franz Beckenbauer played The "Game of the Century" against Italy in the 1970 [[TheWorldCup World Cup]] semi-finals with his arm in a sling, because Germany had already used their two player substitutions.

* Used as a ChekhovsGun ''twice'' in ''Film/PointBreak'' when Creator/KeanuReeves's [[InformedAbility Informed Disability]] (a literal Game-Breaking Injury from his character's football career) prevents him from capturing Patrick Swayze's BigBad. Also facilitates a [[FoeYay Crowning Moment of Foe Yay]] so powerful it had be to [[LampshadeHanging explicitly referenced]] in ''Film/HotFuzz''.

* Utterly hilarious variation from ''VisualNovel/{{Clannad}}''. Yukine's gang prepares for a showdown with a rival group, and Nagisa suggest having a snack- [[LethalChef her mother's]] bread with [[{{Kanon}} a certain infamous jam]]. The gang is instantly KO'ed, leaving Tomoya to fight solo.

** In ''Film/{{Skyfall}}'' Bond sustains two shots on his chest and shoulder. [[spoiler: He loses his iconic aiming with the PP7 due to these injuries, and he never recovers them by the end of the movie. Also M is hit with the thug's gunfire in a non-lethal area [[RealityEnsues but]] [[TearJerker due to her age, she dies from the injury due to bleeding out]].]]

* In ''OngBak 2'', the protagonist gets into a massive battle royale against a large group of mooks. He eventually gets wounded by a sword slash to his gut, which he proceeds to bandage quickly to get back into the fight. Later, an assassin who took note of this proceeds to [[CombatPragmatist target the wounded area with clawing attacks]].

** In the same game, our hidden-blade-equipped player characters from the period get into a fight. One receives a stab wound through his wrist and ends up being forced into fighting with just a sword. He's still formidable, but when both combatants are stunned by a nearby cannon blast and end up grappling with each other, he is forced to use both hands to try and strangle his opponent, and is thus vulnerable to a throat stab. [[spoiler: And that's how Connor killed his father Haythem.]]

* Figure skater Evgeni Plushenko forced to withdrew only minutes before performing short program at the 2014 Winter Olympics because he aggravated his chronic spinal injury, in which the steel bolts implanted in his spine from the recent surgery ''snapped'' because of a botched-up jump in the warmup.
