* Possibly Keiichi from ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry''. When he's [[spoiler:hallucinating from Hinamizawa syndrome he thinks there's needles in the ohagi and that a marker as an injection needle. Hinamizawa syndrome makes you hallucinate some of the things you're most afraid of.]] So it would make sense.
** It's actually explained that when he was younger, Keiichi saw a movie where a guy was killed when he swallowed needles that had been hidden in his food. The scene freaked him out to the point he's since had an irrational fear of finding needles in his food.

* In one sketch, Creator/BillEngvall recounts the time he went in for an acupuncture session to see if it would help him stop smoking. His first question to the acupuncturist was "Will it hurt?" Just as she tells him no, he hears a man in another room yelling in pain, and she says of the other man, "Oh, he big baby!" His response? "''I'm'' a big baby!"
** Turns out he had reason to be afraid, as the acupuncturist accidentally left a needle in his head, which he didn't notice until he tried to take his hat off later in the day. On the flip side, the acupuncture worked.

*Jonah from ''{{Jormungand}}'' is a hardened ChildSoldier that hardly loses his composure during a firefight... but he's no fan of needles, as he explicitly states at the end of the African Golden Butterflies arc. Cue the mass FaceFault from the rest of the group.
-->'''Everyone:''' Scared of needles? What are you, a kid?\\
(''Jonah turns to them'')\\
'''Everyone:''' Oh yeah. You ''are'' a kid.

* It is a long-running joke/urban legend supposedly told by a nurse for someone covered in tattoos and/or piercings to freak out upon being told that they're going to be stuck with a needle for a blood test.

* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'': In one episode, Ranma crash-lands in front of the Cat Café after another [[MegatonPunch trip to sub-orbit]], and a kindly wandering salesman, who had originally intended to sell to the Amazons (currently out on business) tends to his scrapes with disinfectant. This leads to the MadeOfIron martial artist hissing and wincing in pain, leading to the page quote. Somewhat disconcerting, given the sort of abuse Ranma has stoically endured in the series -- and while he has complained at medical treatment before, that's been due to the treatment itself being painful (Tōfū brutally snapping Ranma's joints back into place and proper rotation, being burned with the counter-moxibustion, etc.).

* The protagonist of Creator/LarryNiven's ''A World out of Time'' died of cancer before the book begins ([[HumanPopsicle he got better]]). He reflects on how that experience cured him of any fear of needles.
