* The ''Literature/InheritanceCycle'' has the High Priest [[AmbiguousGender (Priestess?)]] of Helgrind. He/she possesses incredible magical skills and PsychicPowers, and very nearly out-magicked four skilled magicians in a mental battle. Did I mention he/she is missing both legs, both arms, and [[TongueTrauma part of his/her tongue?]] He/she also qualifies as an EvilCripple because let's face it, leading a ReligionOfEvil that practices ritual mutilation [[note]]which is how he/she lost all those body parts[[/note]] and HumanSacrifice kind of makes you a dick.

* In Dan Brown's novels ''Angels and Demons'' and ''The Da Vinci Code'', both had characters with disabilities and were also highly respected professors. The guy in the wheelchair was probably a reference to Stephen Hawking.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/NCISNewOrleans'' has wheelchair-bound tech expert Patton Plame, who only avoids being a TwoferTokenMinority because the cast is split nearly 50-50 along racial lines.

* Mecha Maid from the series {{Spinnerette}} qualifies, as she designed the nerve stimulator that gives her super strength and enables her to move around. Without it, she needs a wheelchair and has trouble even speaking due to her ALS.

Added DiffLines:

* TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}: Autochthon, one of the few non-antagonistic Primordials in the setting, is characterized by an illness which causes his internal components to turn upon themselves, and has actually performed self-surgery on one of his own souls, essentially lobotomizing himself. He's also among the most advanced craftsmen in the setting (their version of Hephaestus or Vulcan, who in past editions was creating ray guns and teleporters while everyone else was working with swords and bows... albeit magical ones).
