** In this case it's not so much that the Assassins are so great (although they do have, [[UnusualEuphemism shall we say]], a certain ''applied'' knowledge on the subject) as the doctors in Ankh-Morpork being utterly incompetent. The only decent doctors in the city are said to be trained in [[{{Qurac}} Klatch]] or ''veterinarians'' (on the theory that if a human patient dies, the doctor can get away with it by saying it's the gods' will, whereas if a prized racehorse dies, [[TheMafia certain people]] will be upset and no mistake).

* ComicBook/LadyShiva, a martial artist and assassin in TheDCU is also a skilled medic, and has been shown doing everything from reviving a man who had been shot and drowned to relieving neck pain. This is explained as a result of the intensive knowledge of human anatomy that is required for her [[TortureTechnician particular fighting style]].

* Ma Kensei and Akisame Koetsuji of ''Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'' are masters of Chinese medicine and acupuncture/bonesetting respectively. Together, they have the skills to revive Kenichi from any trauma that occurs to him during training up to and including death. Koetsuji also fixed the boxer Takeda's lamed arm after doctors told him it was irreparable. To say nothing of [[spoiler: "deceiving death" to keep Apachai Hopachai among the living after his battle with Agaard.]]
** This is taken even further by the villainess, Kushinada Mikumo, whose Jujitsu style apparently also teaches the secret of eternal youth as she is implied to be around the same age as Furinji Hayato, having fought alongside him in the past, and yet doesn't even look middle-aged. It's also implied that part of this involves some form of dietary restrictions as her disciple, Chikage, is frequently overwhelmed by the novelty of sweet foods that are rather mundane to everyone else.
* Sanji of ''Franchise/OnePiece'' isn't a medic, but his kicking skill is such that he can remodel your face and body with magical plastic surgery. Yes, that's right, Sanji can ''kick the ugly out of you.''
* Kenshiro of ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' can use Hokuto Shinken to heal as well as to make heads asplode, such as what he did for Lin in the very first episode, who was rendered mute due to the trauma of having her parents murdered right in front of her.
** Partially justified due to the fact that he's essentially performing a type of acupressure.
** This is explicitly the style that Toki, Kenshiro's older adopted sibling, uses. He walks the wastelands curing the sick with his compassionate version of Hokuto Shinken. Doesn't keep him from firing lasers from his arms to kill people using Hokuto Shinken.
* In the martial arts manga ''Manga/{{Kenji}}'', Kenji's grandfather treats some injuries he picked up in a fight with Chinese medicine, noting that he's "still much better than your average doctor."
* Hinata of Franchise/{{Naruto}} uses her XRayVision granting MagicalEye and PressurePoint based SupernaturalMartialArts to help fix the title character's DramaticDislocation.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': There's one example in this story of someone whose expertise in killing people became a useful tool for them to develop medical abilities. And, no, it's not [[MadScientist Mayuri]]. [[spoiler: Captain Unohana was the greatest MasterSwordsman in Soul Society history. And its most diabolical criminal. She developed healing abilities because her [[EmpathicWeapon special power]] is the ability to dissolve her opponents to death. By healing herself as she fights, she can keep fighting indefinitely while her victims melt to death around her. When she finally became TheAtoner, she put aside the blood lust and instead became Soul Society's best [[CombatMedic healer]].]]

* Mild-mannered doctor Simon of ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' manages to incapacitate a few guards in the episode "Ariel" with, well, [[{{Pun}} surgical]] precision, putting focused weight on his opponent's carotid artery. He managed to subdue his guard even faster than TheBigGuy Jayne.

* He's a fairly low-key example by the standards of this page, but in ''Film/{{Serenity}}'' we learn that mild-mannered physician Simon has a mean right hook. [[FridgeBrilliance This isn't really surprising]] when you remember he specializes in emergency medicine; ever seen the inside of a hospital emergency room on a Friday or Saturday night, just after the bars close?
