* During one of the court phases (either the first or second) of 'Rise from the Ashes' on ''PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'', the prosecution deals what seems to be a crushing blow to the defense's case, after which Ema will quip, "It's merely a flesh wound!" Naturally, it gets better. Later during the same round and after another seemingly crippling point is made, she says it again, with Phoenix even saying, "You just said that!" Again, you pull through even though these points could probably have brought the case down.

** A more literal example can be seen with Franziska von Karma in 2-4. During the case she's [[spoiler: shot in the shoulder. After several hours in the hospital she seems completely fine, and is even swinging around her signature whip as if nothing had ever happened.]]
** Then in AAI we have Lang in case 5 who [[spoiler: takes a bullet to the leg, and then seems to completely forget about it after removing Shih-na from the scene]]

* Averted in the ''Film/MadMax'' films. The director, George Miller, was a practicing emergency medicine doctor and made sure the wounds that Max received were treated realistically. Example: he gets shot in the leg near the end of the first movie, and for the rest of the series he walks with a noticeable limp and a highly visible brace to keep the leg from collapsing.

* In the ''Videogame/{{Yakuza}}'' series, the protagonists are generally treated as never killing others, no matter what ridiculously brutal melee moves they pull off, ranging from stomping on a downed enemy's face to suplexing them onto railings spine-first (and that's not getting into the things they can do with bladed weapons and even guns). Any regularly-fought enemy will be shown limping away after the fight. Situations where the characters do things such as get into shootouts that result in massive explosions or toss people off of buildings are just [[StoryAndGameplaySegregation ignored by the story]].
