* In [[DarkerAndEdgier Season 5]] of ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'', Jack has to stitch up a deep wound in his side with a bit of animal bone and wood fibers. He's audibly and visibly wincing in pain with each stitch, and the emergency stitch-up leaves a permanent, ugly scar.

* Heero Yuy fixes his own broken leg in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing''. This is because said leg was dislocated after a big fall, and he relocated it by himself. This is technically possible but extremely painful, but because Heero's TheStoic at that point of the story, he didn't bat an eye and, rather unrealistically, was able to walk fine afterwards.

A character for one reason or another can't go to a hospital, or [[AfterActionPatchup even get another character to help]], so he treats his own injuries. An oft-seen version of this trope (to establish the {{Badass}} credentials of a character) involves sewing the injury up, with or without the use of anaesthetic. He may also HealItWithFire.

* The title villain in ''Film/DrGiggles'' is shot in the leg at one point, and not only does the surgical work to remove the bullet and stitch up the wound himself, but he does it as if he had a full medical staff, down to requesting (and handing himself) various tools to work with. Of course, this was less him being {{Badass}} and more him being [[AxCrazy bat-shit insane]].

* Chigurh does this in ''Film/NoCountryForOldMen'', as if he wasn't {{Badass}} (and [[NightmareFuel scary]]) enough. He [[WeNeedADistraction torches a car so he can steal the antibiotics he needs from a chemist shop unobserved]]. Moss has to patch himself up as well, but his attempt is considerably more amateur.

* Dalton in ''Film/RoadHouse'' sews his wounds from the opening scene, to establish how {{Badass}} he is. Website/TheAgonyBooth's recap humorously captioned this with "Warning: Do not try to be this much of a badass at home."
