* TheProtagonist of ''The Door in the Wall'' by Marguerite de Angeli is Robin, the son of a knight who longs to become a great warrior like his father. The story taking place in the Middle Ages, the black plague is running rampant. Robin survives his bout with it, thanks to the care of a monk, but is left a lifelong cripple with misshapen legs. This does not in the least stop him from helping to save his people from invaders; in fact, it ''aids'' him, because he's able to slip past enemy lines without arousing suspicion thanks to his crutches, and then he's able to get reinforcements and defeat the invasion, being knighted for his noble spirit.

He's also portrayed as quite the snarker.

** Speaking of UsefulNotes/IndyCar, there's also Charlie Kimball and Conor Daly, both drivers racing while diabetic. They and their respective teams take extra precautions to make sure the drivers don't go into insulin shock, but that they're racing at all is badass (especially considering a driver was kicked out of the Indy 500 in 1933 ''because'' he was diabetic). Charlie has one win to his name while Conor has won a couple minor championships.
