For some (chiefly organic) poisons, the body produces antibodies to clear them from the system; so, with repeated exposure to small amounts, you can build up a level of circulating antibody that grants immunity to a typical dose. In the past ages, [[ScienceMarchesOn the few metallic poisons]] known were rare and expensive therefore most poisons were plant-based alkaloids. However, there are plenty of other poisons (including nearly all heavy metals to which modern civilians and industrial workers are exposed, such as compounds of lead, radium, mercury and cadmium) that ''don't'' [[TelevisionIsTryingToKillUs get cleared from the system and simply build up in your tissues until you reach a lethal dose]].

* ''Manga/SaiunkokuMonogatari''
** Ryuuki built up a resistance to various poisons mostly thanks to growing up as TheUnFavorite at the bottom of a pecking order of six princes and their mothers. Noticeably, he once realizes that [[TamperingWithFoodAndDrink Shuurei had been given a poisoned drink]] and drank it himself, counting on the trope to work; it did, and he lived to tell, but it still made him rather sick.

* Shi Ryuuki in ''Manga/SaiunkokuMonogatari'' built up a resistance to various poisons mostly thanks to growing up as TheUnFavorite at the bottom of a pecking order of six princes and their mothers. Sa Sakujun in the same series built up a similar resistance through bored experimentation, not that it does him a lot of good in the end.

** [[spoiler: Sanji's estranged sister]] Vinsmoke [[RedBaron "Poison Pink"]] Reiju has this as well. At some point Luffy is ''very'' sick after being given a very powerful poison, but she went up to him and gave him a KissOfLife to absorb it and heal him. She has no physical side-effects afterwards.

** PlayedForLaughs with [[PoisonousPerson Magellan]], whose exposure to his own poison leaves him stuck on the toilet for ten hours a day.

** PlayedForLaughs with [[PoisonousPerson Magellan]], whose exposure Devil Fruit powers allow him to his own poison manipulate and create all kinds of poisons; this naturally made him immune to poisons himself, meaning he enjoys eating poisoned meals, but doing so leaves him stuck on the toilet for ten hours a day.
