** Libra Dohko: an old man of more than 250 years old that walks using a stick (and that's actually an {{expy}} of StarWars Yoda), can be even more {{badass}} than any of the younger Saints. Not to mention that he actually hides his young shape intact, shelled inside his old body, ready to use if becomes necessary

** In ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneySpiritOfJustice'', [[spoiler:Armie Buff actually ''was'' disabled for a time following a fire that claimed her mother's life and left her crippled, but she regained the use of her legs a few months prior to the events of the game. She stayed in her wheelchair because she was too scared to go outside, having developed an overwhelming fear of fire. Thanks to Apollo and Athena, she gains the courage to stand on her own two feet again]].

* The killer in the Creator/JohnDicksonCarr novel ''The Problem of the Wire Cage'' uses his recent car accident, and its attendant injuries, to pull off a murder he seemingly couldn't have physically committed. Unfortunately, circumstances turn it into a murder NO ONE could've committed.

* In ''Disney/PetesDragon'', Doc Terminus, a quack doctor, comes to the town of Passamaquoddy. Unfortunately for him, the townspeople are well aware of his previous quackery and are getting ready to run him out of town. He gets them to believe him by performing fake miracle healings. They are performed on his assistant, Hoagy, in different disguises; he pretends to need a pair of crutches, Doc Terminus gives him a tonic and Hoagy [[ThrowingOffTheDisability immediately throws off the crutches and dances in front of the onlookers]]. He also pretends to be a deaf old woman.

* Israeli musician Haim "Zino" Zinovich was a [[NeoClassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly fusion rock]] musician who spent much of the '90s making music without much recognition in his country, and he disappeared without a trace at decade's end. In 2000, however, a new singer named "Hasaruf", the Burned Man, surfaced on the nation's music scene. He was a former Israeli soldier who suffered third degree burns across his entire body and was put into a wheelchair. He got prime-time news coverage all across the national media, and revealed himself to be Zinovich. The Israeli audience that was once indifferent to him were left in awe at his brilliant marketing gimmick, and ran out to buy his CD, which became one of the best selling in the nation's history. Afterwards, Zino and his friend Tomer "Tommy" Bilan started to get Hollywood deals, getting their music in media like Series/TheSopranos.
