** 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.

* The Pinnacle Archery Charm of [[{{Exalted}} the Sidereal Exalted]] is Many-Missiles Bow Technique, which allows you to use your arrows to heal people... or [[AbnormalAmmo a]] [[LovePotion variety]] [[WeatherControlMachine of]] [[TrickArrow other]] [[ArrowsOnFire things]]. Really, all you need to know about Sidereals is that their best medical Charm is in Archery, while their actual Medicine tree is mainly dedicated to TurnUndead.

** The same goes for patients who have to learn to inject themselves. For some, the sense of wrongness is a bigger barrier than fear of pain. However, if you're giving yourself multiple injections every day (as people with insulin-dependent diabetes need to do) you tend to get used to it very quickly.

** This procedure is considered mostly obsolete, as external defibrillators become more and more common. Automatic external defibrillators which analyze a patient's heart rate to determine whether or not a patient requires defibrillation, guides the user through the process, can be operated effectively even by people with very little medical training, and are becoming available in most public places. Both the professional and the automated versions operate on the same principle: essentially resetting your heart by shooting it with electricity. ''A lot'' of electricity.

* The Precordial Thump, which can be used to treat cardiac arrest without a defibrillator. It's a fancy name for punching the patient in the chest in a ''very specific'' way. If done right, and if it works, it restarts the pulse just like [[Series/HappyDays Fonzie]] [[PercussiveMaintenance hitting the jukebox]]. If done wrong, it makes things much worse, and the heart is still stopped. DoNotTryThisAtHome.

* In ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'', Shiki has eyes that can kill anything, including ''concepts''. He uses a fruit knife to cure himself of vampirism, and later, to save a dying [[spoiler:Kohaku]] by killing the poison in her blood.

**To elaborate: The Mystic Eyes of Death Perception allow him to see the eventual death/destruction of people or objects as lines on them. Tracing these lines causes them to fall part. Terrifingly, that also applies to things he can't even perceive himself.

** Similarly, ''VideoGame/PhantomBrave'' has as its Healing Shiv a loaf of French bread. Its basic heal is, of course, hitting the target with the loaf.
** ''PhantomBrave'' also includes the Mystic class whose basic move is a healing punch, which also pushes the target back. This gives the mystic the comical ability to knock enemies out - of-bounds by healing them.

Added DiffLines:

Occasionally, it's the [[AbnormalAmmo ammo]] that possesses healing/supportive capabilities rather than the weapon; so it's possible to use a regular gun for this simply by loading them with said ammo.
