** Though the game is never entirely clear on this. It seems to suggest that she actually does exhibit signs of illness at times, and in the PlayStation3 UpdatedRerelease, she collapses at one point and has to be brought back from a coma by having the Agogo Queen Mother absorb some of her astra, which glows more brightly than anyone else's in the world.

* An InvokedTrope in ''The Assignment'' (1997). A ManipulativeBastard played by Donald Sutherland is trying to recruit the protagonist for a CIA mission to take down terrorist Carlos the Jackal. He tries a number of tactics, but the one that works involves taking him to see one of Carlos' victims, a little girl injured in a terrorist bombing, and introducing the protagonist to her family as a doctor who's going to 'fix' her problem. Later the protagonist realises the whole thing had been faked.

* Yuuya, the cute IllBoy from the seventh and eighth volumes of CLAMP's ''TokyoBabylon'' qualifies, although he has a rare kidney disease rather than cancer. Not only does he rack up massive Moe points with the audience, he's also [[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom the indirect cause]] of [[spoiler:Seishirou's eye being destroyed]], as his mother [[spoiler: crossed the DespairEventHorizon, then [[LoveMakesyouCrazy went batshit crazy]] and tried to tear Subaru's kidney out, and instead ended up gouging his Seishirou's eye out right in front of him]]... resulting in even more [[BreaktheCutie angst and woe]].

* In ''Film/WorldWarZ'', when the walls topple in Jerusalem and the zombies swarm in, they are shown to specifically avoid two people - a sickly old man, and the Littelest AIDS Patient, a small, bald boy who stands there in shock. That's right, even zombies are terrified of the evil that is AIDS.

A particularly risky form of TheWoobie, which is much more likely ([[TropesAreTools though not certain]]) to fail than be successful with the audience. The Littlest Cancer Patient, as you may have guessed from the title, is a small child, rarely over the age of twelve, with some form of terminal disease - although they may be in recovery. Leukaemia couldn't kill them, and neither can a small apocalypse. This character's sole [[RuleOfEmpathy reason]] for existence is to [[{{Glurge}} tug your heartstrings so hard]] they're torn from your chest.
