* In ''Literature/TheWitchlands'', Cursewitches wounds will not only not heal, but poison the rest of the body, unless you can find a Firewitch to cleanse them, which is why Iseult is out of action for a large chunk of the first book.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'' Toffee is missing a finger, despite being able to regenerate at least his entire arm. The finger being blasted off by [[spoiler: Star's mother]] is depicted in a picture that refers to him as the "immortal monster" implying it took powerful magic to cause him permanent injury.

* We have an interesting case with the [[DemolitionsExpert Demoman]] from ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' and his missing eye. In the real world, a normal human is unable to regrow an eyeball, but considering [[CombatMedic The Medic]] with his medigun, which can heal a cut open stomach in seconds, exists, you'd think it'd be patched up by now. Yet somehow Demo's Eye hasn't healed. [[spoiler: The reason for this is that the Demo, when he was young, went to Marasmus the Wizard looking for jobs. He opened a book he was told not to open, and lost his eye, [[AWizardDidIt because Magic and shit.]] According to TF comics issue #6, The Medic HAS tried to fix his eye, but every time he does, on Halloween, Demo's eye come out of his socket, and becomes a massive monster, because his eye socket is haunted.]]

* In ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' the Crippled god was called from the heavens by a cabal of mages and was injured badly upon impact with the world. Since the local Gods and Ascendants try to keep him subdued, none of these wounds have ever healed during the eons he has been trapped there. None of the injuries from the Fall have healed. Not one in a hundred thousand years.

* In ''[[http://fanfics.me/read2.php?id=127043 A RWBY Zanpakuto]]'', Aizen's Bankai inflicts these injuries. Only RealityWarper powers like Orihime or the Hogyoku can heal them, healing kido and healing factors are ineffective.

* ''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]].
