* In ''Film/TheSignOfFourSherlockHolmesGreatestCase'', the BigBad Jonathan Small has a wooden leg. This slows him down hardly at all, and he is very adept at using [[ArmedLegs the peg-leg as a weapon]].

* ''Film/MadMax'': the title character is [[{{Kneecapping}} kneecapped]] at the end of the first film and improvises a brace using a wrench. He wears a medical brace in ''The Road Warrior''. It doesn't stop him from being the most badass survivor of the post-apocalypse and there's even an amusing scene of one of the refinery dwellers scrambling to oil it before he sneaks off into the wasteland to retrieve the semi-tractor.

Mental challenges count as well. Old age doesn't (although it often overlaps with this trope), as that's already covered by tropes like NeverMessWithGranny and OldMaster.

* Creator/StephenHawking suffered from a severe, horribly progressed case of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. He is almost completely paralyzed, and can only use his cheek muscles to control the movements of his wheelchair and voice synthesizer. Despite this, he was as upbeat and optimistic as it gets. He was also one of the brightest and most intelligent scientists on the planet. When he died on March 14th, 2018, he managed to live for 55 years after his initial diagnosis in ''1963'', when the doctors had thought he would only have two and a half years to live.

* ''Franchise/StarOcean'': Crutch character he may be; Ashley is 50-60 years old and has only one good arm (crippled in the original, but in the remake it was outright "forcibly amputated") yet he can still keep up with the rest of the party and go head to head with some of the nastiest monsters Planet Roak has to offer.

* ''VideoGame/GodOfWarAscension'': Pollux is a severely atrophied man due to being a co-jointed twin to his brother Castor, having only one arm, a head and a torso. With that said, Pollux is the demigod half of the Gemini Twins and has psychokinesis as his main power. When Kratos knocks Castor out cold during the boss fight, Pollux keeps [[PowersDoTheFighting fighting using his powers]] by lifting their body with his mind and throwing everything out at the Ghost of Sparta.
