* ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'': Sugou suffers this after Kirito brutally kills his in-game avatar, Oberon, after turning off his pain inhibitor [[note]](In this order, Kirito cut his cheek, [[AnArmAndALeg sliced off one arm]], and finally [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe cut him in half]] before finishing him off by [[EyeScream stabbing him clean through the eye]])[[/note]], as punishment for all the shit he had pulled (including torturing Kirito himself to almost death and molesting Asuna); as a result, he suffers phantom pain in the real world and is blind in one eye. Said pain can't be cured because there's nothing physically wrong with him.

* Music/LinkinPark is infamous for their [[MemeticMutation mention]] of this trope. The song is about drug addiction and how it has affected the body (complete with feelings of something moving beneath the skin), but MemeticMutation has made the song about spoiled teenagers whining about their parents (mainly because some listeners did interpret it that way).

* Scurvy can not only cause poor wound healing, but also weaken old scar tissue to the point where previously healed wounds reopen. According to firsthand accounts, there have even been cases of ''long-healed broken bones falling apart again''.

* In ''Manga/TheSevenDeadlySins'', it is implied demons can cause this. Whenever Ban, who is immortal and has a HealingFactor, gets wounded by demonic power, the wound takes longer to heal and leaves scars.



* In ''Film/DeathBecomesHer'', when the two women drink the immortality potion, they find every wound is like this. The women cannot die, but their bodies can be severely damaged. This only becomes apparent after they both suffer injuries that would have normally killed them, like a broken neck or having a hole blown through their stomach with a shotgun. They are both for all intents and purposes ''zombies''. Their souls are bound to their bodies forever, but since their bodies are clinically dead they no longer have the ability to heal. [[{{Immortality}} Whoops]].

* In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'', [[spoiler:Louise Halevy loses a hand when [[TykeBomb Nena Trinity]] shoots up a wedding Louise was attending. Current medical science should be able to regrow the hand, but the false GN Drive of Nena's Gundam lacks a critical filter component, making it give off toxic radiation that prevents even normal healing and results in Louise showing up in the second season with a mechanical hand and popping pills (supposedly) to deal with the toxins.]]

*''FanFic/FreedomDiesWithMe'' has this happen to protagonist Traveller; specifically he ends up being impaled in the stomach by Lord Brevon's blade. The blood on that blade is described as a sort of poison that hinders the body's attempts to heal. Even the [[ArtifactOfDoom Blade of Hysteria]] cannot heal it and it takes a TimeyWimeyBall to actually keep it closed.

* Joshua Graham from VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas has 2nd to 3rd degree burns over 95% of his body after Caesar had him covered in pitch, set on fire, and thrown into the Grand Canyon [[YouHaveFailedMe as punishment for failure]]. Fortunately, he's a MadeOfIron ImplaceableMan, so he survived. [[BlessedWithSuck Unfortunately]], he's a MadeOfIron ImplaceableMan, so he can't heal his burns or take anything for the pain because [[ImmuneToDrugs chems have no effect on him]]. All he can do is change his bandages every day to prevent infection, and whenever he takes them off and exposes his burned flesh to the air, he claims it's like being set on fire all over again.

* Joshua Graham from VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas has 2nd to 3rd degree burns over 95 percent of his body. As he's immune to every medical chem he's tried and there are no burn centers AfterTheEnd, he has no chance of ever healing from it. And he has to change his bandages every day to prevent infection and it hurts just like he was set on fire again.
