* ''WesternAnimation/SuperNoobs'': This trope is exaggerated in this show as most of the episodes in the series are technically sick episodes. This is because of an organism called the virus, which causes people and animals to turn into rampaging monsters once infected, technically making its hosts sick. Only special elite warriors called Virus warriors, which include the main characters can defeat the monsters and cure the virus hosts
** The episode "License To Noob" has the Noobs' alien tutors, Memnock and Zenblock, come down sick with Swink eye, which is a highly contagious space oriented eye infection that causes near blindness until cured with [[MagicAntidote special eye drops]] and forced Memnock and Zenblock to cancel their training session with the Noobs for that day and treated their condition like the common cold as they tried to make tea to alleviate their symptoms. The noobs had to get the eye drops for Memnock and Zenblock and its heavily implied that Memnock and Zenblock caught this illness through an intergalactic outbreak that started on the hive planet, where its queen and her entire people also had the illness at the same time
** Also in "Noobie Mama", Kevin admitted that he came down with the flu a month before, even going as far as showing a picture of himself with it, grossing everyone out.

A character comes down with an illness (or alternatively, has broken a limb and has a cast on), and may be bedridden. This may be in order to pad out the season, to provide an excuse as to why that character isn't present when their skills or powers would wrap up the plot neatly in a few minutes, or to give the love interest an excuse to [[FlorenceNightingaleEffect nurse him or her back to health]]. In romances, the sickness is ''all about'' the worried, tender nursing. And in the comedies, they frequently end with the sick character now all healthy and looking forward to doing whatever... [[CaretakerReversal only for their friend to suddenly start sneezing.]]

Cures for this illness can vary wildly by genre, and [[FindTheCure obtaining the cure]] may take up a small plot arc of its own. These illnesses are rfarely, if ever, fatal. The illness also mostly never has lasting implications for the main StoryArc, though it's not beyond the pale for a MonsterOfTheWeek to be responsible for a character illness or find a way to exploit the opportunity.
