* In ''[[ComicBook/{{Asterix}} Asterix and Cleopatra]]'', Artifis tries to frame the Gauls by ([[VillainSong musically!]]) making a poisoned cake and sending it to the Queen in the Gaul's name. As he makes the "Special Iced Arsenic Cake" of a variety of toxic materials (And strangely, no eggs or flour, or indeed any non-toxic materials other than orange juice), the spoon he was stirring the mixture with dissolves. And that happened ''before'' he added the sulfuric acid. His expression as this happens makes it even more funny: He's first surprised, before grinning at the mixing bowl.

** In ''Discworld/FeetOFClay'' one of Vimes' many theories for how the Patrician was being poisoned was cutlery made of arsenic. It didn't take long for Cheery to point out that an arsenic spoon would dissolve in soup almost instantly.

* ''Series/{{QI}}'' used this for a "magic trick", dissolving a spoon in a glass of water. The water was in fact just ordinary water: the spoons were made of gallium, a metal that happens to dissolve in water.

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/CampLazlo'' where Clam gets a sickness that makes him fall in love with [[ReptilesAreAbhorrent Gretchen]], one of Lazlo and Raj's attempts at a remedy is soup made with water from Raj's Kafizzle River snow globe. The water from the Kafizzle River is previously established to be [[GrimyWater highly acidic]], so every time Lazlo spills a drop of the soup it eats through the floor. When Lazlo comments that it's like lava from the earth's core, Raj states that it's [[UpToEleven even more powerful than that]].
