* In the Website/TGChan quest ''Fen Quest'', it's mentioned that immunity to [[{{Mutants}} Tomato]]'s deadly venom must be periodically "maintained" by ingesting some of it, otherwise, it wears off over time. When his sister [[ThemeNaming Cheese]] is accidentally stung after months apart, they determine she still has enough resistance to survive unaided, but will nonetheless get gravely ill without an antidote.

* One ''Literature/SixteenThirtyTwo'' short story centered around a poisoning that was originally suspected to be murder until it was discovered to be an accidental suicide. The dead man had been dosing himself with arsenic regularly in an attempt to build up an immunity. Unfortunately, his regular supplier had been selling him adulterated drugs, so his immunity wasn't built up anywhere near as much as he thought. After buying a new supply from a different chemist, who sold him pure arsenic, he took what he thought was the appropriate dosage for his regimen, which was based on the weaker drugs of his first supplier. The massive dose of pure arsenic overpowered his limited immunity and killed him.
