* ''LordOfTheRings''. After Frodo is pinned against a wall in Moria by an orc chieftain's spear, he says he can walk (and does so). After the Fellowship escapes, Frodo feels more pain with every step and is gasping for breath but doesn't tell anyone. Eventually Legolas notices them falling behind the others and Aragorn treats Frodo's injury. (Frodo was wearing a mail-shirt, so the injury was a horrible blow with bruising and the rings driven into the flesh, but all in all not as bad as could have been.)
* One section in a ForgottenRealms book describes a dwarven legend who got his belly cut open in a battle, but quickly tucked his innards into his shirt to prevent any of his men from noticing, and continued fighting.

* In ''{{Anime/Robotech}}''[=/=]''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'', Roy goes on a date with Claudia after coming back from a battle and collapses from the internal injuries he had sustained. [[spoiler: He apparently knew he was wounded and refused medical treatment, perhaps because [[GenreSavvy he suspected]] the doctors couldn't save him, and wanted to see Claudia one last time before he passed away.]]

* In the first season episode of ''Series/{{Xena}}'' titled "Prometheus" (crossover with Hercules), Prometheus is captured and bound by the Olympians as in the legend. This results in mankind losing the gifts he gave them- including fire and the ability to heal, so even a scratch is deadly. Xena, Hercules, and Iolaus have to fight off Hera's soldiers more than once. Iolaus receives a sword wound to the side in one battle. Knowing the implications, he hides the injury for as long as possible. Gabrielle is the first to find out, but he still presses on until he finally collapses.
