* Each [[TheGuardians Guardian]] has a unique [[PersonalityPowers Gift]] that relates to what they were in life. Healing Hands is the Gift of Michael, Dru and Pim, but as they are bound not to interfere in human free will, they can only heal wounds inflicted by or on a supernatural being.

** On one hand, its only real uses are for EXP grinding (by using it on someone and having Laura heal Michiah) and healing status effects (something it does without HP loss). It becomes even more useless once she can promote and use staves -- they don't leave the already frail liability ([[WeCannotGoOnWithoutYou who gives a game over if she dies]]) injured.

** Also, the alien Zsaji, an empathic healer who ended up dying to save [[ComicBook/XMen Colossus]] during the ''ComicBook/SecretWars''. She herself was not a memorable character, in that the sole purpose for her existence was to [[ExecutiveMeddling break up Colossus and Kitty Pryde]].

* Elf dust in ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' can heal wounds. This is sometimes an unfortunate fact for Puck, the elf that travels with Guts - when he needs healing (and after a typical Apostle fight, he's usually in bad need of it), Guts has no problem with grabbing Puck and shaking him over whatever wounds need to be healed.

* In the ''Literature/LoneWolf'' book series, the various Healing disciplines allow a Kai lord to heal others by laying his hands. [[CastFromHitPoints It can cost the player some Endurance]] if the wounds are extensive. Note that this very rarely can save a life if the person is too grievously wounded and at death's door; at best the power will allow a few last words followed by a peaceful death.

** In the third edition of D&D in particular, good and many neutral clerics have the ability to turn ''any'' of their prepared spells into healing energy as needed. This theoretically frees them from having to load up on healing magic to the exclusion of more 'interesting' spells, but doesn't do much to dispel the 'heal-bot' image the class suffers from in some players' minds. Their being bar none the most powerful class as of Third Edition, though, does.
** All core non "mass" healing spells require touches, meaning a lot of them qualify.

** In ''TabletopGame/WraithTheOblivion'', wraiths who know Usury can heal via equivalent exchange, sacrificing part of their being to heal both wraiths and living humans, or taking others' life force to heal themselves (''Stealing'' life force, however, strengthens the [[EnemyWithin Shadow]]). Wraith 20th enables them to let other people make the equivalent exchange as well.

This trope is for the personal ability to heal others. Using a HealingPotion, or a HealingVat or some other external method of healing, doesn't count.
