* ''{{Film/Mythica}}'': Marek is clubfooted, with both a brace on her leg and using a stick to walk at the beginning. Over time however with training she becomes nearly as mobile as any able-bodied person (magical aid is possibly involved then as well). She does ask if Teela can heal her, but when this turns out to not be a possibility it doesn't faze her. It helps in that her weapon is magic, but she's quite capable physically as well. [[spoiler: Her foot is entirely healed later.]]

* The ''{{Discworld}}'' of Creator/AAPessimal introduces the new character of Miss Ethylene Glynnie as a teacher of music at the Assassins' Guild School. She is a drummer and percussionist [[note]]Any resemblence to real-world percussion maestro Evelyn Glennie can be debated elsewhere[[/note]]. She was also taken on, twenty years previously, as a student Assassin after the Guild was pressured to take a quota of handicapped students so as to meet a quota. The Guild decided her deafness ticked the necessary boxes, and considered her to be an interesting experiment. They discovered she did not see it as a handicap at all, (to the terminal surprise of several professional clients) and were pleasantly surprised at how she turned out. Among other things, Evvie Glynnie re-wrote the training courses for non-verbal communication - a speciality she teaches on The Black - and as a bonus could teach drumming and percssion to an advanced level. Fellow Music teachers reflect on the quality of the raw material they have to work with, and reflect that being deaf would be a positive ''advantage'' with some students. At the latest point in the timeline, she is poised to take over a Residential Housemistress position. Unwary and overconfident girls believe a deaf Housemistress means they can get away with ''anything''. However, Miss Glynnie can sense a penny being dropped thirty feet away from the vibrations its fall leaves in the air. And she can even tell you what denomination the coin was, and whether it landed heads or tails. Raven House girls are in for a surprise.

** Beldin is a hunchback, and suffers from dwarfism of an unspecified type. Neither condition prevents him from kicking the asses of people three feet taller than him without breaking a sweat (he treated [[TheBlacksmith Durnik]] like a basketball on their first meeting) and that's before he brings his immense magical ability and prodigious intellect to bear.

* ''Literature/FriedGreenTomatoesAtTheWhistleStopCafe'' has Buddy ''[[InSeriesNickname Stump]]'' Threadgoode Jr, who had his left arm cut off in a train accident at the age of six. After one event having him be annoyed about his handicap and Idgie showing him that a handicap does not mean someone is worthless, he grows up to be quite amazing. Among his achievements are being a great quarterback for his highschool football team, and even being a great shot, despite lacking an arm.
