* ''Webcomic/SlightlyDamned'' has a five piece magic potion set called the Rainbow Reverie which the green potion is one of these, it's potent enough that a small dose can save someone from the brink of death. It's also the only one of the five potions that works for demons (and presumably angels) without unintended side effects.

* At the beginning of the 20th Century, ALL the leading causes of death were from infectious disease, and medicine at the time had a limited repertoire of responses. Then came antibiotics, penicillin in particular; TheOtherWiki states is thus: "The purified antibiotic displayed antibacterial activity against a wide range of bacteria. It also had low toxicity and could be taken without causing adverse effects. Furthermore its activity was not inhibited by biological constituents such as pus, unlike the synthetic antibiotic class available at the time the sulfonamides. The discovery of such a powerful antibiotic was unprecedented."

* Literature/TheShahnameh: Key Kavous is in possession of this but refuses to share it with Rostam when he sends Giv to get it for the mortally wounded Sohrab. Key Kavous's paranoia sets in and he fears that if Sohrab is healed he will go through with his oath to kill Kavous and usurp his throne and now that Rostam knows Sohrab is his son they will join forces! Granted this was actually Sohrab's intent, Key Kavous should have known that Rostam was too loyal to ever let it happen, especially after all Rostam had done for Kavous.

* In the ''VideoGame/MaxPayne'' games, the only way to increase Max's health is to take painkillers, so Max never actually ''heals'' any of the damage he takes during the game, he simply ignores the pain of his accumulated wounds. One wonders how he feels the next day!

* Many healing drinks and salves are mentioned in the Renaissance-era text, "Culpeper's Complete Herbal". While not as fast or flashy as their fictional counterparts, the plants involved (blackberry and clown's woundwort, to name two) have been found to contain a chemical which speeds up cell replacement.
