* In ''TheWheelOfTime'' series the Aes Sedai cannot use their powers (mostly Healing) on themselves. This is explained by the magic needing to be "weaved" and "applied" to someone. In this way its impossible to to lay a weave upon yourself as you would be unable to properly see it. It's a pity they couldn't use mirrors or bend light or something to get around that ... other than that, it's a pretty consistent rule: there's an anecdote about an Aes Sedai whose mental block (Wilders often acquire these when learning to keep a lid on their powers on their own) was that she couldn't touch the Source with her eyes open. Naturally, this made her rather ineffective.

* In ''Series/{{Charmed}}'', witches cannot use magic for personal gain. If they try, the world will twist it against them, or outright delete the results.

* In ''Series/{{Charmed}}'', witches cannot use magic for personal gain. If they try, the world will twist it against them, or outright delete the results. This only applies to [[BeingGoodSucks good-aligned witches]], enforced by ThePowersThatBe. In the PostScriptSeason comic series an incident renders humans magical and witches powerless and the empowered humans can freely use magic for any whim. Evil can do pretty much whatever they want, something the protagonists regularly lament, but they usually [[EvilIsSterile have to steal the power to do so from forces of good]].

* The deformed mutant Masque, from the MarvelUniverse, has the power to alter anyone's facial features, save for his own.

* The deformed mutant Masque, from the MarvelUniverse, has the power to alter anyone's facial features, save for his own. This served to the irony that he couldn't fix his own deformed appearance, leading to [[FreudianExcuse bitterly and sadistically]] deforming other Morlocks to enforce loyalty. Later appearances avert this into full on VoluntaryShapeshifting territory.

* The Medkit of ''[[VideoGame/{{X-Com}} UFO: Enemy Unknown]]'' is a remarkable device. It allows a medical novice to diagnose and treat any injury. Oddly, though it isn't possible to point this medical marvel at your own leg, only at other people.

* In ''[[GaiaOnline zOMG!]]'', the strongest and most stamina-effective heal is Wish... which can't be used on the user. Previously, this was also the case with Rock Armor, which has since been changed.

* A similar instance in ''VideoGame/IronBrigade'', where the Jacobs Tubes can shield all nearby grounded [[{{Mooks}} Tubes]] around it to make them NighInvulnerable, but thankfully can't shield themselves or other Jacobs.

* In ''VideoGame/PAYDAYTheHeist'', players can equip "crew bonuses" to, well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin provide bonuses to their crew]] - things like increased health, damage, ammo capacity, et cetera. Since these bonuses only apply to the player's crewmates and not the player himself, the meta is for a full four-man crew to have two players equip one bonus and the other two equip another, so the full crew can benefit from both bonuses.
