* According to a lore interview for ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', undead (Being forsaken and death knights in this context) are still patched up by light, but since holy light is the undead's kryptonite, it causes them excruciating pain, likened to fire.

* For those who have problems with blood clots, a common preventive measure is to take warfarin. It thins the blood and breaks up clots before they become a problem. The other common name of the drug is ''rat poison''. In fact, blood tests must be taken regularly because it's a very fine balance between having too much in your system or not having enough. The former is dangerous for obvious reasons and the latter will give you the drawbacks without the benefits. Plus, no matter how you slice it, having thinner blood will cause you to bleed more when you are hurt and it will take long for your body to stop the bleeding. This is why the medical community is trying to develop viable supplements that help warfarin users. Also for obvious reasons, warfarin users aren't allowed to donate blood.[[/folder]]

* Immunosuppressive drugs. As their name implies, they suppress the immune system, making it harder for the body to fight intruders. However, they are vital for transplant recipients, as otherwise the immune system attacks and eventually kills the transplanted organ.

** Kiritsugu's special AntiMagic bullets in FateZero also use this trope. They work by damaging the target's magic circuits, then ineptly healing them. The damage can then never be reversed, because it already "has been".

* In ''VideoGame/{{Elona}}'', you can kill the world's pantheon if you so choose if you prepared to fight [[TurnRed their second form]]. Among the gods, there's Jure of Healing - which as can be seen from the name, is the goddess of healing. Killing Jure will cause her next form named Blessed Jure to sprout out of her corpse, and Blessed Jure has an offensive skill named Excessive Heal. The text message of skill being used says "Excessive heal breaks tissue of target!" and it gives the target hemorrhage status debuff.

* In his story in the second ''VideoGame/{{Blazblue}}'' game, {{Sissy|Villain}} VillainProtagonist Jin Kisaragi is wounded courtesy of his encounter with [[TheHero Ragna]] from the first game [[labelnote:*]]While Jin was in a medical airship and had some treatment, Hazama reopened those wounds trying to get to [[HeKnowsTooMuch Makoto]] through him[[/labelnote]]. He's so badly hurt he can barely walk properly, nevermind fight ([[{{Determinator}} which he continues to do quite effectively anyway]]) and receives a temporary healing treatment of this type from Rachel, so he can go on and fight Hazama. Apparently, it's a last resort and not even the legendary hero Jubei would've been able to handle it, but naturally, being the {{Determinator}} he is, Jin manages it.

* Demons in ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' have their basic healing item in the Stygian Bone Leech, a vicious demonic symbiote that gnaws its way into exposed flesh, sanitizing wounds, repairing bones and muscles, and eating infected tissue as it goes. [[http://forums.nexuswar.com/viewtopic.php?p=251216#251216 Here is a picture of one]]. Sweet dreams! Despite being hideous and painful, it does actually heal its 'patients', curing poisons and performing other medical miracles as it eats you. Angels get more benign [[HealingHerb Healing Herbs]] instead.

* In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets'', Gilderoy Lockhart fixes Harry's broken wrist... by [[WorstAid making the bones vanish entirely]]. Of course, this being the wizarding world, there's a cure for that too. ([[FridgeHorror Maybe this is a common side-effect of botching a bone-mending spell?]]) It's called "Skele-Gro". Unfortunately, Skele-Gro regrows bones gradually, so the patient will have to endure a night or two of bone splinters forcing their way through muscle, blood and nerves.
