* In Creator/FredSaberhagen's ''{{Books of Swords}}'' series, the last of the Twelve Swords of Power is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Woundhealer, Sword of Mercy]]. Heck, Woundhealer not only patches you up, but it is so powerful that someone shoved it into their body and jumped off a cliff... and lived. The sword healed them right up. In fact, a useful tactic was to ''stab yourself through the heart'' with it, ''leave the sword in'', and fight with another weapon.

** In a more indirect fashion, the Sniper's Jarate, the Scout's Mad Milk, and the Flamethrower's Airblast can be used offensively or defensively by extinguishing burning teammates. The Milk also turns any teammate's weapon into a Healing Shiv for themselves, returning a percentage of the damage they deal to Milked enemies as health.

* Unknowingly used by Raid in ''Anime/MahoujinGuruGuru.'' An attempt to counteract his BlessedWithSuck magic dances with a stylish spell backfired when the stylish spell turned out to ''recovery'' dark magic. A previous attempt also provided a spell that helped with aches and pains.

** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'''s expansion, Shivering Isles, has a museum of oddities that the player can contribute to. One of the items which can be contributed is the Dagger of Friendship, which does 10 points of damage, and also heals 10 points on strike.
*** Also, with the series' trademark weapon enchantment, there's nothing stopping you from making as many of your own Healing Shivs as you want. Other than, you know, practicality...
*** The weapon shop in the city of Anvil sells a weapon called the Truncheon of Submission: a club that damages a creature's Fatigue while restoring their health. You don't kill anything with it, you just... make them fall over.
** You can obtain and enchant a ''literal'' Healing Shiv in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', once you helped Madanach to escape from Markarth, you should have at least one Shiv in your inventory, you can get two Absorb Health enchantments which can be stacked together: Drainheart Sword and randomly generated Absorb Health sword. You can even name it "Healing Shiv".

** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'''s expansion, Shivering Isles, Throughout the series, given the series' trademark weapon enchantment system, there's nothing stopping you from making as many of your own Healing Shivs as you want. Other than, you know, practicality...
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' offers a use for self-enchanted Healing Shivs. The game's skill system means that skills increase by successfully using that skill. For example, hitting an enemy [[CherryTapping a dozen times]] with a weak dagger will increase the Short Blade skill more than one-shotting that enemy with a [[InfinityMinusOneSword Daedric dagger]]. Enchanting a weapon with a "heal on strike" enchantment that heals more than weapon damages will allow you to basically strike a foe for as long as you want, increasing that weapon skill.

** In "Meet the Medic", however, the same technology from the medigun caused the Heavy's heart to explode. If it weren't for the upgrades and replacement hearts, the medigun could be used to induce ''violent'' heart attacks. This was the result of a test for the ubercharge effect, which is where the medic's medigun reaches its LimitBreak effect. It was shown that the gun could keep the heavy constantly healed while undergoing a heart transplant, both conscious and under the knife of a questionable doctor, and heal the numerous broken bones of others in seconds well before the replacement hearts are given. Note that according to the Medic's profile, the healing effect of the gun is a side effect of whatever the hell it actually does to the target.
