* ''Manga/FrankenFran'' will keep her patient alive by ''any'' means possible. ''Quality of life'', however, is [[BlueAndOrangeMorality beyond her comprehension.]]

Needless to say, many of Fran's patients usually wind up in some [[BodyHorror truly horrific bodily state]] by the time she's done with them.

* 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.

* 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]]

** CPR will probably crack a a rib even when it's ''done right'' -- not a full break, but some fractures are likely. And of course it's preferable to [[KilledOffForReal not being able to breathe at all]].

* The Occultist class in ''VideoGame/DarkestDungeon'' has a healing skill that also has a chance of inflicting the Bleed condition. Depending on how much the RNG hates you, this can result in a character getting healed for 1 point of damage and then immediately losing it on their next turn and then some later on (or, alternatively, getting healed for about 10 HP and resisting the Bleed condition entirely. If the RNG is merciful, you can even get a 40-point critical heal, which will bring anyone back from the brink no problem)

* In the [[ComicBook/TheTransformers Transformers]] series put out by MarvelComics, a substance called "Nucleon" was developed on a robotic planet to serve as a miracle cure, but the patients who were treated with it went insane and murdered their doctors. Grimlock tries to access Nucleon in order to revive his deactivated Dinobot comrades and battles through a series of [[OurZombiesAreDifferent robotic zombies]]. Once at the island where the Nucleon is stored, he learns that the patients were not hoarding the substance, but protecting others from it. Nucleon revitalizes mechanoids but has horrible side effects; in one instance, a patient was brought back to life along with the malfunction that killed him, and must now suffer through yet another slow, painful death. Grimlock tests Nucleon on himself and it results in paralysis, followed by the loss of his transforming ability. He has to literally shed his old body and get a vastly superior and improved form of his humanoid self, [[ShapeshifterModeLock though without any transforming ability]].

* The titular substance of the ''ColdfireTrilogy'' can be used to heal, but the process isn't pleasant.
* In the ''IronDruidChronicles'' this is the reason why druids only practice healing magic on themselves. Healing magic can easily harm the subject before making him/her better and if you use druid magic to directly harm a living, sentient being the magic will kill you instantly. Only the druid's own body is an exception to the rule so druids have SuperHealing for themselves but cannot even try to heal even the simplest cut on someone else without risking death.

* When Josuke of ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'' Part 4 gets angry, his Stand's ability to heal/repair objects goes a bit out of his control. Ask the guy whose nose was basically turned into a pig snout. Done deliberately against the user of Highway Star; the guy was bedridden and tried to use that to defend himself... so Josuke healed him back to perfect health and ''then'' beat the shit out of him.
