* In ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'', Scarecrow has acquired partial immunity to his own fear toxin. However, [[spoiler: a large enough dose can overpower it and like in the ''Blackest Night'' example, he still does fear Batman.]]

* This is a large part of the mechanism for physical tolerance and addiction to drugs. The body becomes accustomed to the presence of the drug, reducing its effectiveness - and, eventually, grows so accustomed to the drug that it's required for normal function. This is why withdrawal can be dangerous for some drugs; the body is being deprived of something it's adapted to require.

If a recreational drug is involved, the user needs more and more to get the same enjoyment, until the required dose causes a (possibly lethal) overdose.

Mordin Solis even has to adjust the power in her cybernetic legs to let her dance!

* There was an episode of an old show (can't recall the name), where a child was bitten by a rare breed of a snake. It turned out that there was just enough anti-venom available for a single dose. Unfortunately, a doctor ends up accidentally also getting bitten by the same snake. She chooses to let the child have the anti-venom. Luckily, there's a hermit snake wrangler, who has developed an immunity to the same venom, and he eventually allows his blood to be drawn and distilled into an impromptu anti-venom for the doctor.

* In ''Series/StargateSG1'', a single shot from the Zat'nik'tel will typically cause extreme pain and/or unconsciousness in subjects. However it seems that years of exposure to hits from this kind of weapon is enough to build up a tolerance. In later series, we routinely see team-members who've been shot with a Zat suffer only mild discomfort and quickly shrug it off, while those who've ''never'' been Zatted before get consistently knocked out.

This ends up being a plot point in an episode, where O'Neill has to run to the stargate in order to activate it and force the local EnergyBeings away, allowing the rest of the team to flee. He uses zat shots to temporarily make his ionized body repel the creatures, but the effect wears off after a minute or so. He can't zat himself again, as a second zat shot within a certain time frame is fatal. Luckily, Teal'c shows up just in time a zats ''the ground'' next to O'Neill to same effect. Wonder why no one thought of that one before.

* In the comic New X-Men, the X-Man Wallflower had this happen to her mother. Her mother was seduced by a mutant with extremely powerful pheromones production and control. He pretty much had her dominated completely. This ended when she was impregnated by the mutant and the result was a daughter, Wallflower. Because she was carrying Wallflower who has the same powers as her dad, Wallflower's mother developed an immunity to both Wallflower and her dad's pheromones. This allowed Wallflower's mom to break the control her dad on her mom.

* In ''Anime/NinjaScroll'', Kagero's body absorbs toxins instead of processing them. It makes her ideal for working as her master's food taster, but it's also made her bodily fluids highly toxic, which is good for assassination - [[BlessedWithSuck not so much for potential love interests]]. [[spoiler:However, the kiss she and Jubei share just before she dies is implied to be enough to counteract the poison in his body.]]
