* If you touch Fire Coral during a dive, the venom will stay in your body for the rest of your life. People unlucky enough to brush against Fire Coral twice in one lifetime report the hideous burning sensation both where the coral made contact and where it touched them the first time.



* 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 neurocytes that keep attacking the injured party's own immune cells.

** Taken even further later on. Because of Ragna's artificial right arm, wounds inflicted by magic or Nox Nycorteses (Like Hakumen's blade) will ''never'' fully heal, and even time travel won't get rid of them.

** Lucius was once the best-looking of the Emperor's Children, an entire Chapter of PrettyBoy SpaceMarines. His nose was broken in a fight and stayed broken despite the Apothecaries' best efforts, so when his Chapter fell to Chaos, he jumped off the slope and started scarring himself.

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.
