* Provided you can take the [[GreekChorus Shadow Girls]] at their word, this was part of the motivation for [[spoiler:Ruka]] in ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' to come to Ohtori. [[spoiler:He was in love with Juri but knew she [[SchoolgirlLesbians preferred someone else]] who didn't love her back. Upon learning he's dying of something fatal, dramatic, and completely not in evidence on-screen, he manipulates the dueling game to give Juri some closure with his last days.]]

* Parodied in ''WesternAnimation/SpaceGhostCoastToCoast'' episode "Terminal", where Space Ghost is supposedly dying of some undefined terminal condition, who's symptoms are things like "it hurts when I sit down" and suspiciously fake-sounding coughing. He spends the whole episode trying to be serious and wistful while nobody takes him seriously and accuses him of faking it for attention, until he finally falls over dead at the end [[spoiler: ...only to open his eyes after [[LeaveTheCameraRunning an overly-long zoom-in]] and remark "Huh. This isn't so bad."]]

* This is essentially the fate of [[spoiler: The Mother]] in ''Series/HowIMetYourMother''. The disease is fatal, and that's pretty much all we know about it.

* In ''VideoGame/DarkElfHistoria'', if the player manages to get through enough of Freylia's early quests without failing, then Ruse will come down with a disease that will force Freylia to put new jobs on hold in order to track down a cure.

* Subverted with [[spoiler:Shingen]] in ''VisualNovel/IkemenSengoku''. He appears at first to have a classic lingering soap operaish illness that's only vaguely defined by occasional [[IncurableCoughOfDeath violent coughing fits]] and the main character even comments that it doesn't seem to be pneumonia or any disease she's familiar with. However, the route where he receives medical treatment in modern times has a doctor diagnose him with the real-life condition [[https://www.hindawi.com/journals/crim/2011/939808/ endobronchial lipoma]] and even correctly describe it as a tumor that's benign on its own but can cause breathing difficulties and pneumonia. The game does still take some liberties with its portrayal of this disease, but it still gets big points for explicitly linking it to something that actually occurs in the real world.
