* Captain Bor'Aq Sharaq in ''[[ComicBook/ConanTheBarbarian Savage Sword of Conan]]'' is one such case where becoming handicapped only made him ''more dangerous'': at first he was just a pirate who had his sword hand chopped off in a duel with Conan and later lost his right eye in prison. Then he managed to escape and had a smith create a metallic arm for him with detachable blades that he could use to pursue his hated foe. He is one of the most recurring villains of that comic, since his persistence and hatred for the barbarian allow him to live through stuff that any other person would have perished from--such as [[DraggedOffToHell being thrown into a demonic dimension]] and [[LikeABadassOutOfHell managing to claw his way out!]]

* Every member of the Wyre Cats in ''Webcomic/WeAreTheWyrecats'' has a disability of some kind. It's a major part of what brings them together in the first place. Their XAG suits also make them powerful enough to [[spoiler: incite the government to sabotage and shut them down]].

* In ''VideoGame/ProjectZomboid'', it's possible to play as a character who is ''deaf''. It makes it so you only detect flanking zombies when they are extremely close to you (basically biting range) but it also gives you a whopping 12 points to spend on positive traits. You can quite easily become a deaf GeniusBruiser or BadassBookworm with a wide range of skills.
