* Right before the 1994 Olympics, figure skater Nancy Kerrigan was clubbed in the kneecap by Shane Stant, a man hired by [[BlondesAreEvil Tonya Harding's]] ex-husband. Kerrigan would win the silver medal a month later. The gold medalist that year, Oksana Baiul, was also competing injured thanks to an accident at a warm-up event.

* In ''Videogame/FinalFantasyVII'', this was how a BadassNormal infantry grunt like Cloud was able to kill a SuperSoldier like Sephiroth in Nibelheim. Sephiroth was distracted meeting his "mother" Jenova, giving Cloud the opportunity to impale him ''and'' Jenova from behind with the Buster Sword. Sephiroth still had the strength to impale Cloud in turn, but his injury left him too weak to resist when Cloud used his own sword as leverage to hurl Sephiroth into the chamber's wall. The exploding machinery in the wall did the rest of the job, and the dying Sephiroth fell into the Lifestream. It took Sephiroth years to recover from what Cloud did to him, and he had to create a new body using Jenova cells to do it -- his own original body was beyond saving.

* In the final volume of ''Manga/GreatTeacherOnizuka'', [[spoiler:Onizuka is targeted by a group of [[BatterUp baseball bat-wielding]] [[AllBikersAreHellsAngels motorcycle riders]] who hit him in the head multiple times. What really makes this fight dramatic is that Onizuka is suffering from a brain condition in which if he suffers one more major blow to the head, he will die. The biker gang is well aware of this information.]]
* During the fight with [[MagnificentBastard Shishio]] in ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'', the entire cast feels this. Kenshin's been weakened to the point that he has to string multiple special moves together to even get Shishio to flinch, Saito's legs have been injured, making his signature attack useless, Sanosuke can't properly perform his special attack, and Aoshi can barely fight. Ultimately, Shishio's own Game-Breaking Injury is what does him in as [[spoiler:he can't regulate his body temperature following the government's attempt to [[KillItWithFire burn him to death]], and after exerting himself for too long, he spontaneously combusts.]]

* In ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'', this is how Jonathan Joestar met his end. Dio managed to pierce Jonathan's throat, mortally wounding him and preventing him from using his Ripple, which relies on breath control. Jonathan is still able to pull off one last Ripple. It was so weak that it couldn't even fully destroy a single zombie, but it was enough.

* 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.

** In fact, the Game Breaking Injury was Bane's entire plan to get Batman to the point where he could give him that broken back. He deliberately got all the other villains in Gotham causing chaos in a very short period of time, thereby ensuring that Batman wasn't running at anything close to 100%.

* Hans Gruber arranges for one in DieHard. After noticing that John [=McClane=] is walking around with no shoes on (long story), he orders his men to "Shoot the glass" in a firefight, forcing John to flee across broken glass on bare feet. He spends the rest of the film limping.

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]].]]

* This is OlderThanPrint. In KingArthur legends, this is how Sir Gawain of Orkney dies. He had an old head wound that was nearly fatally reopened in a fight with Sir Lancelot. Lancelot refused to fight him while he was wounded and sent him to his tent to recover. Ironically, he was nearly healed when news that Mordred had taken over Camelot came. He insisted on going to war with his king, but had his head wound reopened AGAIN in a small skirmish with a bunch of untrained peasants on his way to a ship. He died minutes after the fight was over.

* Submission artists employ this tactic all the time. They will use a variety of locks and holds that target a specific part of the human body until it becomes too painful to use.
** Wrestling/TheUndertaker is very good at selling this trope, often to the point of setting up his finisher only to stop because his knee or foot collapses in pain.

* One of the more horrific injuries was Sid Vicious' [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sid_Vicious_(wrestler)#Injury compound fractures]]. For the squeamish, it was a small jump off the 2nd turnbuckle to deliver a one-footed kick to ScottSteiner, but his left foot landed wrong, resulting in his tibia and fibula breaking bad enough that his boot was hanging at an obtuse angle.
** Which is made even worse when you read that he was [[ExecutiveMeddling talked into doing an aerial move by the management]], which felt he needed to broaden his arsenal, completely unaware of the fact that he had done very well for himself rarely ever leaving his feet.

He quickly gets patched up but doesn't regain his full climbing ability until late in the game and only after buying climbing equipment indicating he never fulled recovered.

* Similarly in ''OperationFlashpoint'', taking a wound in the arm would make it more difficult to aim. A wound in the legs could just slow you down, or make it outright impossible to stand at all.

** Don't forget Brett Favre, whose noted "Ironman Streak" of Most Consecutive Starts at any non-special teams [[UsefulNotes/NationalFootballLeague NFL]] position (297 regular season; 321 including postseason) involved both injured and broken throwing-hand bones and ankles.

** Jack Youngblood of the Los Angeles Rams actually played every single play on defense during Super Bowl XIV against the all-powerful Pittsburgh Steelers with a taped up broken leg.

* Good tactics in pretty much any type of equally-matched one-on-one REAL fight to the death involving blades. As opposed to working for that tidy one-shot to the chest, neck, or head. Once your opponent is bleeding out, his form is bound to suffer. That's assuming your foe's limbs are all still attached. And this can be done without closing in enough for him to land a MutualKill! Hollywood, however, disagrees. Doubly so in knife fights, since one-shot kills with knives are a bit harder to come by.
** Word to the wise: The loser of a knife fight dies in the street. The winner spends six months recovering and has to use a cane for the rest of their life.

* In "The Walking Dead", this happened to young teenager Carl Grimes after he is shot in the eye unintentionally but Douglas Monroe, the leader of the Alexandria Safe-Zone. In a desperate attempt to save Rick Grimes and his son, Carl, he begins wildly shooting into the crowd of zombies surrounding them, shooting Carl in the eye before being devoured by zombies. After a long while in a deep coma, Carl awakens to find that he has lost all of his recent memories and that he is incredibly crippled: blinded on his right side due to the loss of his eye. For a long time, he is ordered to stay in his house and keep the weight off of his feet, but, being Carl, that never happened. The injury begins to show permanent effects on his mental state as well, as he becomes much more hostile and bitter towards others, especially Rick, and prefers to keep it covered up. Fast forward to multiple years later, and it has been shown to still deeply affect him. He tells Rick that the faces that others give him when they see his eye hurts him emotionally, and he lectured Rick on the fact that he knew that Rick was ashamed of him for it, justifying his wanting to rescue his girlfriend, Lydia, because she is the only one that Carl has come across that did not wince each time she looked at his wound. In fact, she told Carl that it was "sexy".
