* Gideon from ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' is a healer and a well respected Elder. Unfortunately, he turned evil and tried to kill Wyatt and managed to kill Chris. He didn't so much turn evil as become a WellIntentionedExtremist--Wyatt ''was'' set to become the EvilOverlord of Earth in the future, after all.

* Cytherea, at [[SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy]] in the WhateleyUniverse. As the avatar (or reincarnation or something) of Aphrodite, she has the powers of the goddess of love. Which she uses to manipulate men, get herself out of trouble when she gets caught doing bad things, avoid work, cheat in her classes, etc.

* Rezo of ''{{Slayers}}'' studied up on healing magic and got himself a wonderful reputation in the search for a cure for his blindness before JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope. * ''Spunky Knight'' has [[SquishyWizard Delfas,]] who theorhetically could be the ultimate doctor due to his HealingHands and mad scientist-level of technology in an RPG-like world, [[EvilutionaryBiologist however, he uses such abilities to craft the ultimate sex slaves right down to being able to speed up a pregnant woman's gestation period with the intention of her giving birth on the auction block.]] To date, Phaia was the only one to survive the process.

Cut natter.
** This may be a bit of a subversion. To the viewers, this is a good power. To the Jedi, not so much. The Jedi belief in accepting death, avoiding love, and not getting too attached to any individual. Being able to bring loved ones back from death is something that goes against everything the Jedi aspire to. *** Also, Darth Plagueis developed his resurrection abilities as the ultimate manifestation of his ability to use the Dark Side to forcibly manipulate the stuff of life itself, which is a pretty morally dubious thing. He's even implied to be Anakin Skywalker's true "father", as Shimi Skywalker's immaculate conception may have been one of his experiments.

** The SpellJammer expansion takes this a bit further. In one of the crystal sphere settings, a natural anomaly connects with the Positive Energy plane, and can cure characters of any injury, ailment, or disease, but has a cumulative chance of creating incurable, disfiguring tumors. It is guarded, and worshiped by a Cult of Bane, a "dead" evil god.

* Elixir, a healer on the ComicBook/{{X-Men}}, wavers between good and bad. A lot of his problems are caused by tragedies in his life, though, and getting drafted into XForce was {{Wolverine}}'s attempt to help.

* Yakushi Kabuto in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' is a medic; he is also the DragonAscendant to the first major big bad, "biologist" Orochimaru, and one of his specialties is using "healing" powers to kill. Both of them use a skill that at its peak could be [[spoiler: (and ''is'', when Kabuto uses it)]] a ZombieApocalypse. The Rinnegan is able to ([[ComboPlatterPowers among MANY other things]]) resurrect people without any real drawbacks, but the wielder of the Rinnegan is the BigBad of an arc [[spoiler: and loses it to TheManBehindTheMan for the series.]]

* Beyond the ubiquitous telepathy, individuals with a magical talent are rare in ''ElfQuest'', but the most well-known sort among all tribes are healers. The series' BigBad, Winnowill, is the most powerful healer alive; while most with this talent only know one way to apply it (lay on hands, subject gets better), Winnowill takes great pleasure in using her powers to twist and deform organisms, subjecting them to unimaginable tortures.
