* [[{{ComicBook/Batgirl}} Barbara Gordon]] was confined to a wheelchair for a long time following ''ComicBook/TheKillingJoke''. The recent removal of that factor [[BrokenBase is heavily debated]], especially since she had come into her own as Oracle before then.

* [[http://sonic.wikia.com/wiki/Helen Helen]] from ''SonicX''. Refreshingly, in episode 14, Sonic makes a point to '''not''' smother her with pity, but instead spend a day with her treating her as a person, and not making a big deal about her disability, but moreover, making an actual point to ''accommodate'' her needs while befriending her, even going so far as to blow off the President to avoid interrupting his time with Helen.

* Subverted in season 3 of ''WebVideo/TheGuild'', in which one of the members of the "Axis of Anarchy" is a hot blond in a wheelchair, who turns out to be a total b-word and exploits her condition to manipulate people.

* WesternAnimation/{{Pelswick}}'' averts this. In fact, the entire purpose of the show is for Creator/JohnCallahan (A handicapped man himself) to say that wheelchair-bound people should not be pitied. Needless to say, [[BlackComedy this]] [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids has]] [[LoveItOrHateIt garnered]] [[AudienceAlienatingPremise controversy]].

* Chloe Reeves in ''Series/TheDumpingGround''. In a wheelchair after falling out of an upstairs window as a toddler due to neglect by her mother, and may or may not have been pushed by her older brother, the needlessly evil and conniving Ryan Reeves. She then spent years separated from her family, sending endless letters to Ryan that he never opened. And then, after finally being moved into the same kid's home as her brother, she's stuck in an endless cycle of being ignored by him, forgiving him, excusing his terrible deeds, and being manipulated and controlled by him. The poor kid...

*This seems to be the point of the ''Dragon Without Wings'' AU for ''VideoGame/FreedomPlanet''. While little is (currently) known, the story seems to be Lilac becoming a paraplegic from being shot in the spine by Brevon, with Carol and Milla taking care of her. All that currently exists of this AU are a few images, such as [[http://masterperrymartin.deviantart.com/art/A-Dragon-Without-Her-Wings-650353565 this]].
