That just reminded me of Marcus "Pinky" Pinzerowsk, from the Doom movie.

Due to a teleporter accident, his torso ended up in one place and (quoting the movie itself) "his ass somewhere else"

He, of course, becomes one of the monsters. Specifically, the Demon or "Pinky" from Doom 3.

Even monsters of Hell can get crippled :lol:

Someone mentioned Yuki Yuna is a Hero a while back, and I feel like it could do with a re-mentioning, in light of almost all of the main characters becoming disabled in some way. It's basically become Katawa Mahou Shoujo. We''ve got a blind eye, muteness, a loss of taste, and the girl in the wheelchair that first earned the show a mention here is now deaf in one ear. In addition, another character appeared who is fully paralyzed from the neck down, and can't use one eye, plus whatever else is wrong with her that was left unmentioned.

I just remembered this:
In the video game Drakengard for the Playstation 2, there are these things called "pacts", where people make a pact with a magical being for power at a price. The Pact Price can be something frivolous such as your hair, like Verdelet, or something more. Two characters who actually ended up physically disabled from this are Caim, who paid with his tongue (voice, mute) and Leonard who lost his eyes (sight, blind).
Now some of these Pact Prices don't sound that bad, Seere lost his "time", rendering him functionally immortal. This would be awesome aside from the fact that he's permanently eight :lol:

Can't imagine anyone has mentioned the wheelchair-bound Lord Guinness from Around The World with Willy Fog yet...

It's not every day you get Guinness and Wheelchair in the same context...
But when it occurs, it usually involves police intervention

Yes, good call. The mentions of it here are what made me start watching, and the show has been one surprise after another, in a good way. Disabilities incurred as a direct result of heroism for the greater good are probably pretty easy to draw parallels to for many real-world situations, too.

Has Miles Vorkosigan been mentioned? Main character of a sixteen book science fiction series.

He's 4'9" as an adult and has brittle bones which break from minor impacts (so he's had broken bones dozens of times). Also grew up as a short, weird-looking guy in a world where "mutants" are hated and feared so he went through a lot of discrimination.

Probably my favorite fictional character ever. I think a lot of KS fans would like the book series too. It starts out being a space adventure type series but later on explores a lot of different genres such as mystery and romance.

Oh! Bernard Marx from Brave New World.

He's supposed to be taller because of his social status and the artificial way humans are made in the future, but something went wrong and he was born as the future equivalent of a little person, which I believe also made him more fragile, though I may be misremembering that part.

Oh yes. I've been following Yuki Yuna. Katawa Mahou Shoujo indeed. The latest episode implies that each time they cycle through a tour of duty, they acquire a new "fairy" sidekick at the start, then a new disability when they go Mankai. Thus, the revelation of why Togo has three fairies to the others one -- she's been on three tours of duty, losing first her walking ability, and then her memories. The quadriplegic girl has twenty-one fairies. Also, as a side bonus, the girls can die or commit suicide.
I like all the girls in KS, but empathize with Hanako the most.
