* "Huey" Emmerich, better known as Hal Emmerich's (i.e. [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid Otacon's]]) father, is one in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker'', leading to a brief moment of FridgeLogic given that Otacon's {{Backstory}} involves Huey nearly drowning Hal's sister Emma in a swimming pool...which would be difficult to do from a wheelchair, to say the least. This appears to have been overcome by him upgrading himself to a lower-body exoskeleton in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain''

* Subverted in ''Anime/CrossAnge''. Ange's sister Sylvia is wheelchair-bound and seems to hit all the aspects of the trope... until later episodes show her to terribly cruel and hateful toward her Norma sister, losing her any audience sympathy she might have had. And in the end, [[spoiler:it turns out her paralysis was psychosomatic in nature, as a terrified-out-of-her-mind Sylvia is able to stand up and run away in the final episodes, and is shown standing without assistance in the epilogue.]]

* [[CampGay Gillette]] from ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'' was shot through the spine, confining him to a wheelchair. Archer's {{Jerkass}} persona lead to many KickTheDog moments. [[spoiler: Subverted when it is revealed that he wasn't actually crippled and just liked the sympathy and attention being in a wheelchair afforded him.]] ** [[spoilers: He later actually paralyzed and spends the first few episodes of Season Five wallowing in self pity.]]
