* The ''ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFiendshipIsMagic'' comics imply that a talent in healing magic in [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic the setting]] is very rare, as Radiant Hope is signaled-out to become a princess when she gets her cutie mark in healing (though granted, she is ''very good'' at healing, having been able to [[spoiler: resurrect ''King Sombra'' from nothing but his horn, though some of that might be due to him not being a normal pony.]] )

* In ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'', healing is the rarest talent among Aes Sedai, and requires more training than other disciplines to do safely. It's also hard on the recipient, since it essentially takes the body's current resources and fast-forwards the natural healing process -- their patients tend to wake up ''extremely'' hungry.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', while healing is generally limited to certain classes that may or may not be part of a (game) session, all players with the Life aspect (probably best described an elemental affinity) have the ability to revive the dead, regardless of class. Jane Crocker and Feferi both demonstrate this. For Jane Crocker at least, this seems to be limited to once per person. This hasn't come into play as of this writing, (mainly because DeathIsCheap in Homestuck and there are a variety of ways for the dead to come back), but it's bound to figure into the plot at some point, as '''everyone''' is running out of extra lives.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', [[TheDeterminator Jane's]] title is the Maid of Life, meaning that she serves and protects life, and can protect or destroy others with life. This is most apparent in her ability to restore Life to a dead person and revive them. The catch, however, is that it only works once per person. This hasn't come into play yet, thought it likely will.

Added DiffLines:
* In ''Literature/StarCursed'', healing magic requries knowledge of anatomy and can be very taxing for beginners. The protagonist gets a headache when she heals deep wounds.

Not this trope. While the game is rigged against giving you healing spells, it's a property of the particular plot, rather than universe (beyond the D&D standard, anyway).
* In ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'', Fall-From-Grace the succubus priestess is the only healer who can join your party, and she does so relatively late (about halfway through the game's main story path). Since your character is immortal and [[GoodThingYouCanHeal regenerates injuries]] this is less of a liability than with other Infinity Engine titles.

* In the ''Literature/SwordOfTruth'' series, healing is common, but a wizard healing an injury does so at least in part by taking on the pain and/or disease of whatever he's healing. So when Zedd regrows Adie's severed foot, he experiences the pain of her [[LifeOrLimbDecision lopping it off in the first place]]. So while a Wizard can heal most things that aren't fatal, they usually need a substantial break between patients to recover their strength. The few times we've seen Wizards acting as mass healers, they work themselves to exhaustion--and even that is still one patient at a time. By contrast, a Wizard can throw around [[KillItWithFire Wizard's Fire]] around over and over for hours before they start to get tired.

* ''Literature/AMagesPower'' uses the "the body is complicated" example. Healing mages are basically the world's version of doctors which means they go to medical school and learn about how the body works and how magic can be used to fix problems. When Nolien is tending to someone's battle wounds, he has a ditty that goes along the lines of "stop the bleeding, check infection, reconnect the nerves and veins..."

When problems. **When Nolien is tending to someone's battle wounds, wounds in ''Literature/AMagesPower'', he has a ditty that goes along the lines of "stop the bleeding, check infection, reconnect the nerves and veins..."" **As a necro priest, Brother Neuro is capable of healing by directing [[LifeEnergy kon]] from one area to where it is needed. In this way he can mend serious injuries but he's just accelerating the natural healing process and doesn't truly know what he's doing. That's why he demures Tiza's praise and insists that Nolien is a superior healer.
