* ''Series/HighlanderTheSeries'': Similar to the above-mentioned example from the original [[Film/{{Highlander}} film]], during a fight with another Immortal, whose great talent was his singing voice, Duncan grabbed a shard of glass and slices his throat. Decades later, Kalas is still unable to sing, furthering his hatred of Duncan.

** Another victim was Philoctetes, who was either bitten by a serpent or accidentally scratched by one of these Hydra-arrows before the siege of Troy. Philoctetes was not caused pain by the scratch, but the never healing wound stank like a mountain of corpses, which was unbearable during a prolonged siege, as there was no way to escape it. Philoctetes was exiled to an island, taking the quiver of Hydra venom tipped arrows with him (they were his property, having been a gift from Hercules), and when the gods tell the Greeks that the only way the war can be won is with his bow, the Greeks end up having to swallow their pride and beg Philoctetes to return.

In some versions, the wound is eventually healed by the son of Asclepius.



* Most ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stigmata stigmata,]]'' which are supposed to be copies of the Crucifixion wounds (hands, wrists, feet, side piercing done with TheLanceOfLonginus, sometimes forehead if we consider the wounds coming from the thorned crown, etc.), are like this, as are any wounds that a saint wears as a mark of holiness. Said wounds are supposed to never heal, never putrify or be infected, and in some ''stigmata'' cases exhude the pleasant "Odour of Sanctity".

* Burns tend to act like this. Even mild 1st degree burns leave marks that take months to disappear. 2nd degree burns usually need a trip to the Emergency room to properly treat. 3rd degree burns take years of surgeries, skin graphs, and recovery to act normally. 4th degree or worse usually result in amputation and/or death.

This usually happens for [[{{Curse}} supernatural]] or highly symbolic reasons. Perhaps the wound was made by something powerful enough to prevent healing, or it was received as the result of treachery, cowardice, or evil potent enough to force the injured person to pay for their trespass indefinitely. Either way, normal medical care simply won't do the job. Somehow, the wound must be purified and the symbolic meaning behind the injury rectified before the sufferer stands any chance of being healed -- if that's even possible. The really unfortunate can never be healed, and spend the rest of their lives in pain..

* In [[http://www.mediaminer.org/fanfic/view_st.php/19769 The Legend of Link: Lucky Number 13]], an injury inflicted by [[LegionsOfHell the Originals]] cannot be healed by anyone, be they a mortal wizard or the strongest of gods.

* At one point, Marvel's ComicBook/TheMightyThor really severely pissed off Hela, the goddess of the dead. Consequently she cursed him to never die -- and never heal. A truly horrible fate for a warrior god.
