* In "Magic Gift of the Snowman", Emery has a disease that can be fatal, and one of the symptoms is paraplegia. Modern medicine can't do much to treat it, but people who have the disease can fully recover if they want to recover enough. When Emery recovers, the symptoms disappear overnight, including her paraplegia.

* ''LegendOfTheGalacticHeroes'' [[spoiler:Reinhard dies of a completely straight example of this. Which comes off as a little strange since he's in his early twenties and living in a future a couple of thousand years ahead of the present day in which one would think medical technology would be advanced enough to at least identify it. Especially considering they're dealing with the emperor of the entire galaxy. Rebuisky dies of a more explicit brain tumour]].

* Almost all of the main characters of the ''VisualNovel/{{Narcissu}}'' series suffer from some form of terminal illness, though specifics are very rarely described, and it never seems to stop them from traveling long distances by car and subsisting on junk food.

* ''Franchise/KagerouProject'': Haruka Kokonose ([[spoiler:Konoha's former self]]) has a rather ambiguous illness (although a shot in the ''Konoha's State Of the World'' PV seems to imply it's a heart condition) that lands him in hospital for weeks, and prevents him from participating in physical activities. [[spoiler:He dies at 17, after a few-months-long {{Timeskip}} after his introduction. However, since it was triggered by the BigBad on purpose, we'll never know how long he would have lasted on his own]].

This is played with in ''Room 002108'', chapter 9, where it is stated by an American doctor that she has some unknown illness, the which turned into septicemia, which implies it was some kind of bacterial infection, causing her blood to poison her, the which almost killed her or should have.

* Also mocked in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/AlvinAndTheChipmunks''. Theodore gets hooked on a soap opera where one of the characters has a disease called Zomboid Rigadosis. Alvin and Simon try to convince him it isn't real, but they all panic when Dave appears to have become stiff and motionless, and try to find a way to cure him. It was actually a wax statue.
