* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' episode "Slumber Party," Angelica is forced to share a bedroom with Tommy and opens the window to get rid of the "baby's room" smell, letting in the cold air. This results in Tommy coming down with a fever, which leads to a surreal [[FeverDreamEpisode nightmare sequence]] in which all the other characters turn into the figures on the mobile over his bed. Except the fact he actually was sick is only implied, he could have been dreaming about being sick and threw up in his sleep.

* In ''{{Persona 3}}'', the main character gets caught in the rain on the way back from school during the onset of a typhoon, and spends a few days in bed with a fever. The main character can also come down with a cold if fatigued by studying too late or spending too much time dungeon-crawling in Tartarus; because daytime is being spent in a crowded school and the fatigue weakens his immune system, this is in fact more realistic than catching cold due to the weather.

Despite the fact that the actual cause of the cold has been fairly common knowledge for about a hundred years now, this fact has not seemed to permeate the public consciousness very far. (In English-speaking communities, this confusion may just be caused by it's being called a 'cold'.) Mothers still caution their children to button up when going outside lest they catch cold, and any character in fiction, especially animation, will instantly begin to sneeze and cough after being chilled or, especially, [[InstantIceJustAddCold frozen]]. These symptoms may go away once they've been warmed up again.

again, which is sometimes TruthInTelevision, as some people FreezeSneeze when it's cold, but often these symptoms are treated like a cold.



The trope, although pretty much a DiscreditedTrope at this point, is still used faithfully in fiction and media -- exposure to cold means you are going to 'catch' a cold or something worse. Once one has caught cold, if it's a GrossOutShow, expect rivers of green mucus, horrible shots of runny noses and hankies and tissues dripping with such.

** While the cold doesn't cause illness, it can bring some illness (like the flu or the common cold) out of its incubation period, triggering symptoms, or it can complicate an illness already present (like the Balto example under Western Animation).
