* In ''{{Nier}},'' your daughter Yonah has one. Although if you're playing the Japanese [=PS3=] version Yonah is your sister instead.



* Dr. Light has this both during the flash back at X's ending sequence in the ContinuityReboot called ''VideoGame/MegaManMaverickHunterX'' and in the ''Day of Sigma'' OVA included in the said game during the flash back showing Dr. Light creating X on his final days.

* At the end of the introduction of ''VideoGame/DragonQuestV'', the lead character's mother manifests one of these as an explanation of why she isn't present when the game proper kicks off. [[spoiler: It's actually a trick, though -- she's still alive, and gone for entirely different reasons.]]

* Shinjiro in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' coughs on occasion, the only real sign [[spoiler:the meds he takes to keep his Persona under control have wrecked his health]]. Interestingly, this is worked into gameplay: during combat, when someone misses with a melee attack, there's a chance they'll trip and be left prone for a round. Shinjiro doesn't trip - he bursts into such a severe fit of coughing that he drops to his knees.
** And then we have the IllBoy Akinari Kamiki, the Sun Social Link, a frail, thin young man who has this nasty tendency to go into such fits of coughing that he ends up briefly unable to speak. The name the game gives his Social Link says it all: "Dying Young Man". Notable for actually giving an identity to his ailment (a terminal genetic disorder). [[spoiler: He actually ''does'' fall victim to his illness, and it's hinted that [[NotTooDeadToSaveTHeDay it's his ghost who gives you his book as a]] TragicKeepsake if you max said Link. Also, his soul will cheer on you before you go fight the BigBad.]]

** If he survived VideoGame/MassEffect2, Thane Krios is coughing when met in VideoGame/MassEffect3. In this case his terminal illness was already known. [[spoiler: He'll later be seriously wounded and die due to complications resulting from his illness, keeping with the trope]].

* ''VisualNovel/{{Hakuouki}}'' follows TheShinsengumi from before the Ikedaya Incident up to the end of the group, and thus unsurprisingly shows the onset of Okita Souji's tuberculosis and his struggle to cope with his illness. In most routes, it takes him out of the story entirely right around the onset of the Boshin War just like his real-life counterpart; in his own route (and in the anime adaptation) he manages to stick around a little longer thanks to [[spoiler:becoming a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent fury]]]], but his cough doesn't entirely go away and even his ending implies that he's living on borrowed time.

* [[LadyOfWar Field Marshal Viola]] from ''VideoGame/RadiantHistoria''. The fact that she thinks she doesn't have long to live goes a long way to explaining some of her behavior late in the game, though [[spoiler:she doesn't die of it no matter what. Either you kill her, or, if you completed her sidequest, she survives and gets treatment for her disease, which turns out to be less incurable than previously anticipated.]]
* During one of the final gaming sequences of ''VideoGame/TheSilentAge'' [[spoiler:Joe]] stumbles a couple of times and gives out a cough. By that time the player can already guess it means [[spoiler:he got infected by the virus from the future and is going to inevitably die. He doesn't only because he is kept in a [[HumanPopsicle cryogenic capsule]] for the next 40 years untill the virus can be cured]].

* TheOtherWiki says the following about the voice actor [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Varney Jim Varney]]: During the filming of ''Treehouse Hostage'' in August 1998, Varney started developing a bad cough. As the cough became worse, Varney began noticing blood on his handkerchief and, after filming was complete, he went to the doctor. A chain smoker, Varney had developed lung cancer.

* In ''Podcast/Wolf359'', Eiffel coughs every once in a while during the episode ''Lame-O Superhero Origin Story''. At the end of the episode, he's audibly out of breath even though he hasn't done any physical labour. He then starts coughing and gagging, [[BloodFromTheMouth coughs up blood]] and collapses moments after. The next episode starts off with him coughing and wheezing, suffering severe breathing problems, running a high fever and going into shock. [[spoiler: During the episode, his lung collapses and he suffers severe internal bleeding. While he ''does'' survive, it's only barely.]]

** TruthInTelevision. In fact, Thérèse was ''overjoyed'' when she found blood in her handkerchief. She'd spit something into her handkerchief the night before but had to wait till morning to make sure. She writes about it like a five-year-old on Christmas.

* In the very first scene of ''The Crown'', King George VI is seen violently coughing up blood into the toilet, before assuming a stiff upper lip and going into preside over the ceremony in which Prince Philip renounces his foreign titles. Given that the focus of the series is about George's daughter Elizabeth II's early years on the throne, it's not hard to guess what's coming.
