* In one ''{{Sliders}}'' episode, they end up in a world where a disease ("The Q") is spreading throughout the world, and wiping out humanity [[spoiler: because, as a paranoidly clean society, they never discovered penicillin]]. Anyone who coughs has the disease (and often try to cover it up).

** While not Chris' counterpart, the series from which Dragon Knight adopted its footage, ''Series/KamenRiderRyuki'' also contains one such character in Shuichi Kitaokao/Kamen Rider Zolda. In fact, its more or the less the main reason why he becomes involved in the Rider War as he wants to use the promised wish to grant himself immortality, thereby curing himself. By the end of the series, Shuichi decides to quit the Rider War deciding to enjoy what little time he has left. However, [[spoiler: he also begins to feel the need to take some personal responsibility over his role in allowing his ArchEnemy to become a Rider, and decides to fight him one last time. Before he gets the chance, however, he succumbs to his illness and dies. Even taking the ResetButton ending into account, there's no indication that things will turn out any better for Kitaoka, and worse, he'll probably never go through the CharacterDevelopment he did in the series and grow out of his {{Jerkass}} tendencies.]]
