* In ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' Smoke Knights carry antidotes and test kits for a number of Smoke Knight poisons. Justified in that Smoke Knights work for more than one faction and they end up fighting each other fairly often.

* Downplayed and justified in the ''VideoGame/MetalSlug'' series with the zombies. Only the scientist zombies will drop a medkit that will turn a zombified player character back to human.

* The ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series has an in-game book titled ''[[http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Lore:A_Game_at_Dinner A Game at Dinner]]'' which [[SubvertedTrope Subverts]] this on a BatmanGambit scale. A Dunmer (dark elf) spy is writing a letter of resignation from espionage, and explains why. He was invited (along with several other Dunmer and at least one human) to dinner by Hlaalu Helseth, the head of the House the narrator is spying on. The narrator describes having seen a renowned alchemist (who makes [[MasterPoisoner exceptionally unpleasant poisons]]) visit the host. The narrator attends the dinner, and fakes eating and drinking. After everyone has eaten, Helseth announces that the disloyal have been given a fast-acting poison, the faithful have been spared, and the antidote is in a broth he had just had brought out (there was enough food available at the feast that nobody would have any other reason to drink any). The narrator wonders how this was possible, as all ate from the same plates and drank wine from the same chalice. Helseth announces that the utensils were actually poisoned, so even feigning eating would poison you. Due to this, not only would you die, but you would have "sadly, missed an excellent roast." Eventually, one of the human guests jumps up and drinks a large quantity of the broth, and then confesses his espionage. Helseth smiles when he finishes, and explains that the "antidote" was actually the poison, and that he does NOT, in fact, have an antidote to it. The narrator finishes his letter of resignation by informing his superiors that he sincerely does not want to describe the agony in which the poor man died, and that the paymaster to whom the letter is addressed does not want to know.

* Subverted on a BatmanGambit scale in a book within ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', titled "A Game at Dinner." A dunmer (dark elf), is writing a letter of resignation from espionage, and explains why. He was invited (along with several other dunmer, and at least one human) to dinner by the head of the house the narrator is spying on. The narrator describes having seen a renowned alchemist (who makes exceptionally unpleasant poisons) visit the host. He arrives at the dinner anyway, and fakes eating and drinking. When all have finished "eating," the host announces that the disloyal have been given a fast-acting poison, the faithful have been spared, and the antidote is in a broth he had just had brought out (there was enough food available at the feast that nobody would have any other reason to drink any.) The narrator wonders how this was possible, as all ate from the same plates and drank wine from the same chalice. The host announces that the utensils were actually poisoned, so even feigning eating would poison you. Due to this, not only would you die, but you would have "sadly, missed an excellent roast."

* On ''HumanTarget'' it's discussed: A poisoned character (who was poisoned to death) is said to have believed another character had the antidote. Winston thinks this would be ridiculous, and Guerrero says it's common practice: carrying something so dangerous, you'd want an antidote on you.

* Tabletopgame/DungeonsAndDragons
** In early edition adventures, whenever the {{PC}}s encountered a creature that [[TakenForGranite turned its opponent into stone]] it would often have a magic item that reversed the effect, such as a scroll with Stone To Flesh spell(s).

One example is in the Judges Guild adventure ''Dark Tower''. In one room is a medusa guarded by an animated statue. If the statue and medusa are defeated, the {{PC}}s will find a scroll with Stone to Flesh spells.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' episode "Jake Vs. Me-Mow," a very small feline assassin named Me-Mow with a syringe of poison and a vial of antidote hides inside Jake's nose and poisons him, saying he'll only give him the antidote if he kills Wildberry Princess since Jake exposed Me-Mow's first attempt at doing so himself. Eventually Me-Mow is knocked out of Jake's nose still carrying the antidote, and Finn tries to get it away from him. Me-Mow smashes the vial when he is held down, but after this Jake realizes he can stretch his liver to a great enough size to render the poison into a non-lethal dose. Me-Mow did mention at one point that he was going to leave Jake to die, leaving open the possibility that the antidote was fake anyway.
