Even after that, he lived to the age of ''ninety-eight'', and in TheHighMiddleAges no less.

* The [[TropeMaker inspiration for many of these entries]]: Creator/StephenHawking, perhaps one of the most famous scientists in the world today, who as the result of [[AndIMustScream Motor Neurone Disease]] (also known as ALS and Lou Gehrig's Disease) was quadriplegic and used a wheelchair, and who, following a 1985 tracheotomy, used a computer voice synthesizer to speak. Somehow, though, he was able to have an extramarital affair, so apparently not ''everything'' is paralyzed. When asked about how he'd fathered children despite the disease, Hawking joked that it only restricted ''voluntary'' muscle movements.

* Downplayed with Nuralla, Parvana's father from ''WesternAnimation/TheBreadwinner''. He lost a leg in the war, but before that he was a teacher and as such is well-versed in history and literate in two languages. He, and later Parvana, uses this literacy to earn money as a scribe.
