* In ''{{Anime/Robotech}}'', 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.]]

* Tsume in ''WolfsRain'', probably. It's possible he just didn't realize he was ''that'' badly hurt until the adrenalin wore off, since he seemed rather surprised to see a pool of his own blood. In any case, [[spoiler:he doesn't get better.]]

* In ''TenchiUniverse'', Ryoko suffers one of these while fighting [[BigBad Kagato]]. The injury lingers through the penultimate episode, being further aggravated when Ryoko is attacked while disabling Jurai's planetary defenses. She holds out just long enough to pilot Ryu-Ohki to the landing docks of the Jurai Royal Palace and deliver Tenchi before passing out in front of a very worried Ryo-Ohki. We're led to believe that she died, but she didn't.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/OnePiece'' has Roronoa Zoro. When the Straw Hat Pirates attack Arlong Park, Zoro's injured state WAS pretty clear, but his bandages hid just how serious those wounds are. When Arlong himself takes a peek, he's horrified by the fact that Zoro was still STANDING with a wound like that, and decided right there that this was someone he did NOT want to fight healthy.

* During ''VideoGame/AviaryAttorney'' [[spoiler: Romulus/Silvio]] gets shot just before framing someone else. In one route this is quickly found out and he freaks out while manhandled. In another, he spends several days getting things done but is increasingly disabled and enfeebled by the wound.

* There's a famous joke about a captain or admiral who habitually wears a red jacket into battle so his crew won't notice if he gets wounded and therefore won't lose morale. The punchline comes when a huge enemy fleet is sighted and he requests [[BringMyBrownPants brown pants]] in addition to the red jacket.

* In 1898 Empress Elisabeth, better known as ''Sissi'', of Austria was stabbed by Luigi Lucheni, who pretended to have simply fallen against her, but didn't realize it at first and made it back to her hotel (losing consciousness several times) before her companion noticed a brown stain on her chest. They only realized what had actually happened after she was already dead, and despite the fact that the needle file used in the stabbing had penetrated her heart the pressure from her corset slowed the process of her bleeding out, and it's believed that she might have survived or lived longer had they not removed her corset when trying to determine what had happened.
