* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' Oghren has spent so many years mistreating alcohol, that he no longer suffers any negative effects from whatever he drinks. Taken further in ''Awakening'' where during the Joining ceremony, upon drinking the concoction (which contains darkspawn blood among other unpleasant ingredients), which typically renders the new Wardens unconscious, he merely ''burps'' [[CrowningMomentOfFunny and claims it was "not bad".]]

* ''VideoGame/Persona3'': It's extremely strenuous traversing inside Tartarus, the reasoning is explained by Akihiko and Mitsuru after the Protagonist, Yukari and Junpei experience its effects. Gameplay wise in the beginning it won't take much fights to put the Protagonist, Yukari and Junpei into "tired" status. As the group levels up more and more their resistance to the exhaustive effects of Tartarus strengthens, but does not disappear entirely.

The official term for this is Mithridatism, after a king who made use of the effect. It backfired when he was defeated and [[DrivenToSuicide tried to commit suicide]]; his immunity to poison [[GoneHorriblyRight worked so well]] that he ended up needing to [[ICannotSelfTerminate hire a mercenary]] to [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice run him through.]]

** AJ's Sandshrew has Acquired Water Immunity. As ground types, Sandshrew are typically weak to water. This one can ''swim''.



** A novel or two mentions a food-taster who has ingested so many poisons that he's not only immune to them, but can recognize them by taste (very handy). He can also tarnish silver by breathing on it (not so handy). And reputedly eats a toad a day to stay in practice.

*''Literature/JourneyToChaos'': Tiza states that her apprentice training included small dosses of different poisons to develop an immunity. She refuses to say which ones because it is a secret but one of them comes in handy [[spoiler: when a trio of zombies try to kidnap her using chloroform.]]

* A famous urban myth is UsefulNotes/RasputinTheMadMonk - he supposedly had been taking minute doses of cyanide over a long period, and when his meal was poisoned, he ate it and walked away. Given that it ''should'' be impossible to build a resistance to cyanide, it's likely that it's not true; it's believed to be more likely that the poison had been counteracted by something else he ate during that meal.
