** Also, The Going Merry, the Straw Hats' ship. After sustaining damage over the course of the battles the crew got in, the ship's keel (basically the ship's equivalent of a spine) was cracked. The only way to repair a ship once that happens would be to literally tear the ship apart, replace the keel, and then rebuild the ship around the new keel. [[spoiler: Eventualy, the ship just cannot hold out anymore and the Straw Hats' are forced to give her a VikingFuneral, [[TearJerker/OnePiece her spirit says that she has no regrets]]]]

** Also in general, wounds inflicted by a magic-resistant blade cannot be magically healed. Mundane medicine still works, but injuries like severed nerves are still beyond its ability.

* 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. [[spoiler: The Season 3 premier reveals that Moon used a powerful Dark Magic spell she learned from Queen Eclipsa to blast Toffee's finger off (a direct hit would have killed him, but doing so would have released [[BiggerBad Eclipsa]] from her prison). Physically reattaching it is enough to allow Toffee to fully heal, though it doesn't do him much good before Star's SuperMade disintegrates him.]]

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}''; Malakith, Witch King of the Dark Elves, attempted to prove his legitimacy to the Phoenix Throne by stepping into the Flames of Asuryan. Unfortunately for him, the Flames deemed him unworthy and roasted him, and even with his magical armor keeping him alive the burns are still agonizingly fresh after centuries.

** The body of Roboute Guilliman, Primarch of the Ultramarines, is kept in a stasis field on their homeworld of Macragge, his mortal wound still visible. Occasionally an excitable pilgrim will swear that the wound is healing, but the Ultramarines dismiss these claims, since, well, [[TimeStandsStill stasis field]]. [[spoiler:Subverted as of ''Gathering Storm'', where they put the new Armor of Fate which is heavily implied to possess advanced life support systems, and Guilliman is alive once more.]]

* Human bite wounds are notoriously difficult to heal, and have an abnormally high propensity for becoming infected. This is due in part to saliva being saturated with bacteria.

* In ''The Medusa Amulet'' by Robert Masello, the titular amulet makes anyone immortal if they look at their reflection and the reflection of the full moon at the same time, but they are left completely frozen in the state they were in when they see themselves. Artist Benvenuto Cellini, who created the amulet and was the first beneficiary of its power, is noted as still suffering crippling damage to his legs after he jumped out a window to escape a Nazi raid in the Second World War, and other users of the amulet's power- Marie Antoinette [[spoiler:and Adolf Hitler]]- are depicted as actually still retaining consciousness [[AndIMustScream|even after being completely decapitated]] until their heads are explicitly destroyed.
