* 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.

** The Cave Fisher monster fires a filament that wraps up opponents and is dissolved by alcohol. The cave fisher's blood has a high alcohol content, so after it's killed its blood can be used to remove the filaments it created.

* 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.

* Averted in ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'': Valmont infects Jackie with a poison that will [[TakenForGranite turn him to stone]], but a) he [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy points out that he isn't stupid enough to be carrying the antidote]] b) In the final showdown, his goons use the antidote on a fly to prove they have it, and seem willing to give it (until they notice the ransom isn't complete).

* In ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove'', Kuzco spends most of the movie trying to get back to his palace so he can force Yzma to turn him human again; Yzma has potions to transform anyone to practically any shape. When he finally gets there, [[spoiler: he has no idea which one is the "human" potion, and steals them all, which results in a transformation fight with Yzma similar to the Toadstool from ''The Sword In The Stone''. At the end Yzma is turned into a kitten, so they're both really fighting over the same "antidote".]]

* In an episode of ''TheSimpsons,'' the villain not only has the antidote, but absentmindedly starts adding it to the food along with the poison until he realizes his mistake.
* The page quote comes from ''TheTick'' after he was accidentally sprayed with a plant vitalize that makes plants come alive and attack people. The villain -- a plant-man with plans for world domination -- indeed has one, for reasons unknown to everyone.

* ''Naked Empire'', the eighth book of the ''SwordOfTruth'' series averts the trope. The moment the villain obtains the only antidote for a poison the main hero ingested, he dumps it in the ground without any ceremony or even letting the hero get within ten kilometers of it. Unfortunately for him, a DeusExMachina saves our valiant hero in the last moment.
