** Latula, her ancestor who instead lost her smell, isn't in focus enough for this to be entirely clear but seems to play it straight and pretend that she's fine with it while actually clearly disliking that she lost it.

** Latula, her ancestor who instead lost her smell, isn't in focus enough for this to be entirely clear but seems to play it straight and pretend that she's fine with it while actually clearly disliking that she lost it. This is at least partially because Troll society believes that any disability, no matter how minor, is cause for culling - but for Beforan Trolls, this means keeping them at home and coddling them so they don't feel bad about themselves.

* While both Shizune's (a deaf from birth girl) and Lilly's (a blind from birth girl) routes of KatawaShoujo touch upon this trope, it's mostly the latter one that dedicates whole dialogues (and two of the game's most memorable scenes, by most accounts) to deconstructing, discussing, and reconstructing it. Having never experienced the sensation of sight in her life, Lilly obviously doesn't feel as if she's "lost" anything, especially given the fact that her other senses are sharper to compensate (when the protagonist asks her if she's not sad about not being able to say, she jokingly asks him if he's sad about not being able to hear what people in the next room are saying). While occasionally frustrated with not being able to see (especially when something completely out of the ordinary happens, leaving her frozen and feeling powerless as for how to respond), her attitude towards her missing sense most often seems to be one of intrigue: she is fascinated with the concept of color in an almost spiritual fashion (which is fitting, since she's no more capable of imagining color than a regular person would be of imagining divinity), and wonders about how other people dream (amusingly asking the protagonist "Do you see in your dreams?", a question whose opposite is stereotypically directed at the blind). Sight and sensation-play even feature heavily into her romantic scenes.

** In ''VideoGames/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'', Jedi Knight companion [[TokenEvilTeammate Lord Scourge]] describes this as part of the [[WhoWantsToLiveForever price for his immortality]] -- he can no longer taste or smell, has only rudimentary senses of sight and touch, and is generally disconnected from the feeling of "living". He suggests that [[BigBad the Emperor]], having done it longer, probably has it ''worse''.

* In ''Manga/OnePiece'''s Dressrosa arc, the formerly-human LivingToy Thunder Soldier can't feel the warmth of other people's bodies, and hates every second of it. [[spoiler:Not even being able to feel his wife's warmth as she died in his arms, or his daughter's hand as he walked around with her, was a horrible curse to him. Fortunately, he and the other toys were later returned to normal, and when he finally got to feel the warmth of his daughter's hand at the end of the arc, he couldn't help but shed TearsOfJoy.]]
