** Combat Paralysis - you tend to randomly "freeze" in combat. Some particularly fiendish [=GMs=] recmomend having each PC start with it in realistic 'normal people' games. It's nothing in comparison to the Hemophila disadvantage, which makes ANY wound you suffer into either a royal pain in the ass, a life-threatening disaster, or a quick trip to the morgue.

Added DiffLines:

** For ''[[VideoGame/{{TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind}} Morrowind]]'', The Lord birthsign. You get a healing spell that's outclassed by Hearth Heal, a spell you can get in character generation too by having Restoration as a Major or Minor skill. The tradeoff is doubling the fire damage you take. Other signs provide better skills and weaker penalties, making it suicidal to choose The Lord unless you're roleplaying.

%%* ''VideoGame/HellNight'' has this with the game leaving you to be a OneHitPointWonder. But it's not only that but some partners has this too: Naomi can see the monster's location on the map and compass, but is otherwise passive. Kamiya and Ivanoff can stun the monster for quite a while but that's it. Same with Rene, although she has limited ammo and is the last partner the player can recruit.

chooses to not recruit any of the partners available (and letting Naomi, who joins you by default in the beginning, die as soon as possible), this causes the entire game to have to be played as a No Damage Run and there is no reward for doing this, as it locks you into a Bad Ending.

* ''Dependence'' is this in the ''HeroSystem''. While it was originally intended to replicate characters like Aquaman, who needed to dunk himself in water once a day, it turns into a bludgeon against the character, because all the GM has to do to screw over the guy is not allow access, storywise.
* "Palms Like Sieves" in ''HackMaster''. And Hemophilia, [[RuleOfThree again]].

** Another issue of Dragon includes a selection of extremely crippling commoner-oriented flaws, up to and including Corpse. This was acually an AprilFoolsJoke. Oddly enough, creative interpretation of several of these ended up being a significant boon and turned what was originally a class with no abilities and bare minimum stats into a LethalJokeCharacter.
