* Of all the spells Link can get in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', the healing spell Mipha's Grace takes the longest time to recharge, 20 minutes.

** Wizard Healers have mundane diseases and injuries licked, but wizards are vulnerable to magical diseases like dragonpox, and injuries inflicted by curses, like George's lost ear, can be unhealable.

** Also played straight in the seventh book, as Hermione -despite being quite adept at most types of magic- utterly refuses to try any healing spells herself and advises Harry and Ron to do the same, as none of them are trained healers and botching an adept to heal an injury can make things even worse (as seen by Lockhart's attempt at healing Harry's broken arm in the second book resulting in him ''losing'' all the bones in his arm). Instead they rely on a limited supply of healing potions and herbs Hermione put together before they set off.

* In ''ScrappedPrincess'', Raquel Casull can blow up buildings just by looking at them funny but all her magic cannot prevent [[spoiler:Pacifica from bleeding out after being stabbed in the back]]. It takes a personal intervention by [[{{God}} Lord Mauser]] to fix that wound.

* In [[TabletopGame/{{Mordheim}} Mordheim - City of the Damned,]] only the Witch Hunters and Sisters of Sigmar have healing spells. The Sisters of Sigmar have a somewhat weak healing spell that affects an area, while the Witch Hunters's spell affects only one person but recovers a lot of health. Both these spells take the maximum amount of time and money to learn. Other than those two, healing becomes limited to finding healing draughts (they recover small to medium amounts of health depending on the quality) or buying DLC characters, Poison Wind Globadier and Doomweaver and learning their respective skills Infused Globe and Idol of Blood (the first can cause side-effects, while the second requires units to attack an enemy before they recover health).

* In ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'', Recovery Girl can heal severe injuries in seconds, but her power can only accelerate someone's normal recovery speed. This can cause severe strain on the injured person, so overuse is not necessarily a good idea. Additionally, it means she can only heal injuries that the body could recover from naturally given time, so very severe injuries can be untreatable. And given that she works at one of the most prestigious academies for superheroes in the world, it can be assumed that she is considered '''really good''' at healing despite these flaws.

* In ''Anime/OjamajoDoremi'' using magic to heal is a forbidden technique because it comes at cost of magic user's own health. This comes in play when [[spoiler: Hazuki attempts to heal a bunny that is about to die to spare the bunny's caretaker, Nanako, from feeling guilty; she does so despite knowing the risks, and gets a severe cold... but only because [[BigGood the Queen of the Magical Land intervened]]. She ''still'' can't remove all of the "bad karma", so Hazuki doesn't die but gets the cold ''and'' is BroughtDownToNormal as punishment for being reckless.]]

* In ''Literature/RiversOfLondon'' magic can do a lot to the human body, YourHeadAsplode, blending [[CatGirl people and cats]], keeping a [[LosingYourHead severed head alive]] for decades, but sadly for [[spoiler:Lesley]] it cannot heal injuries. A human body is just too complex to put back together again.

to:

* In ''Literature/RiversOfLondon'' ''Literature/JourneyToChaos'' 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 do a lot be used to fix problems.
** When Nolien is tending to someone's battle wounds in ''Literature/AMagesPower'', he has a ditty that goes along
the human body, YourHeadAsplode, blending [[CatGirl people lines of "stop the bleeding, check infection, reconnect the nerves and cats]], keeping veins..."
** As
a [[LosingYourHead severed head alive]] for decades, 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 sadly for [[spoiler:Lesley]] it cannot heal injuries. A human body is he's just too complex to put back together again.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.

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': To a point. On the one hand, anyone holding [[{{Mana}} Stormlight]] gains a powerful passive HealingFactor. On the other hand, only Surgebinders can hold Stormlight. They can also use this power to produce a number of effects like gravity control or illusions. However, of the ten orders of Knights, only two (the Edgedancers and the Truthwatchers) have access to Regrowth, which lets them heal others. And even then, it's an advanced technique; the basic version of the ability just lets them grow plants.
