* In Creator/ArthurCClarke's novel ''A Fall of Moondust'', the passengers of a buried moon rover are sedated to conserve oxygen until rescue can arrive. One passenger has to be physically knocked out to bypass his fear of needles [[spoiler:which was hypnotically imposed as a cure for drug addiction.]]

(The hypnotic treatment included a {{trigger phrase}} to [[OverrideCommand temporarily negate]] the phobia for legitimate medical injections, but the trapped passengers didn't have access to it.)

* Ryuko Matoi from ''Anime/KillLaKill'' is a veteran MadeOfIron {{Badass}} and has lived through countless crippling injuries of all shapes and sizes, having been beaten, cut up, shot at, and more. When Aikuro sticks a needle in her arm to draw blood, however, she freaks out and has to puff out her cheeks to keep from screaming in pain. However, she gets over it as the series goes on, as activating Senketsu requires her to have a needle shoved into her wrist.

[[spoiler:Given that her past involved ugly experimentation at the hands of her own mother when she was just a baby, this fear was quite justified]].

* ''Series/WillAndGrace'': Grace is so afraid of them that she can't even say "Ringo," because he was a Beatle and that sounds like "needle." Karen takes advantage of this fact when she finds out the other three are betting against her, and employs a ridiculously young and airheaded nurse to take Grace's blood ("Don't worry, ma'am, I've done this bunches of times. Mostly on oranges, but...") Most decidedly a [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments Crowning Moment of Funny]].

* In ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'', Linus is not only afraid of getting shots, he's scared when he has to get a sliver taken out of his finger with a needle or tweezers. (For the latter, Charlie Brown gave some advice, telling him to pretend he was being tortured by pirates who wanted him to tell them where the gold was buried. After having his mother remove the sliver -- indicated by an off-panel scream from Linus -- he came back and said, "I told them where the gold was buried!")

** In one arc, Lucy and Peppermint Patty wanted to get their ears pierced, [[SarcasmMode and Marcie was a big help]], telling them about all the dangers of getting that done by an unskilled amateur; Patty almost freaked when Marcie mentioned a penicillin shot. Eventually they decided to go the safe route and have a doctor do it, but Lucy chickened out and ran after hearing Patty overreact to it.
