* Papillion from ''BusouRenkin'' has such a cough, and escapes his inevitable death by becoming a homunculus. However, his transformation was incomplete, so though he has an immortal, super-human body, his illness wasn't cured like it should have been and his cough carried over.

This is usually accompanied by [[HighPressureBlood nasty amounts]] of BloodFromTheMouth which is always a bad sign, even when there's no plausible reason for it. May also involve collapsing. The character will probably try to hide it and will usually succeed until they actually pass out. This trope is almost always carried out by the IllGirl or the LittlestCancerPatient.

LittlestCancerPatient. A more proactive sufferer may be a DeathSeeker looking for AGoodWayToDie or an OldMaster desperate to train TheChosenOne before the illness takes them.

* In ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'', the Incurable Cough Of Death is simply one of the V-Type Infection's syndromes (among dizzy spells, fever, keeling over at the drop of a hat...) that [[spoiler: Sheryl Nome]] has to endure, even though [[spoiler:Grace]] has claimed the V-Infection to be incurable and fatal. [[spoiler: Her]] struggling to overcome these in order to reassert [[spoiler:herself and her ideals]] seems to be one of the major plot arcs as the series nears its end.
** [[spoiler: However, Sheryl doesn't die, but is saved when Ranka uses her own Vajra skills to move the virus from her brain to her stomach region, turning it into more of a benign symbiosis than infection.]]
* Parodied in ''Anime/{{Macross 7}} Encore'', where Millia comes down with a cough and assumes that she is dying. She begins doing a whole bunch of [[HilarityEnsues really silly things]] that she wants to do before she finally gives out. At the end of the episode, Dr. Chiba finally states his diagnosis: a cold. The cough was never anything more than a cough, but Millia overreacted due to apparently never having gotten sick before.
