* In a book based off ''WesternAnimation/{{Ozwald}}'', Ozwald gets a cold from being caught in the rain.
* ''What is Love?'', which is a book tries to define the word "love" to children has a part about ToughLove which says that "your parents may make you wear a jacket in the rain even if you don't want to and your teachers may make you study subjects you personally dislike but don't think that means they don't love you because their motivations are still out of love. Your parents make you wear the jacket because they don't want you to catch a cold and your teachers give you lessons you don't like because they might be important in the future."



* Invoked in ''{{Series/Highlander}}''...Anne tells Duncan he'll get a cold from sitting out in the cold air. (And she was a doctor. Eesh. as for whether immortals get sick,we never find out for sure.)

** A similar game entitled ''Rapunzel Flu Doctor'' has Rapunzel and Eugene from ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'' on a date and then Rapunzel falls out of a boat into the lake and catches the flu.



* In ''Webcomic/{{Roommates}}'' Jareth tried very hard to avert this trope (even if from his reaction he was never sick in his life) when he went to visit his mother for the Holidays. Warm clothing and everything. Unfortunately his mother is AnIcePerson and an EvilMatriarch so he ended up with a magical cold that also had PowerIncontinence as a symptom.

* In the book ''ComicStrip/{{Asterix}}'' ''in Switzerland'', Obelix declares he's caught a cold "from that wretched lake".



* In the update of ''WesternAnimation/HowToCatchACold'', Goofy says that people used to think colds were acquired by going out in the rain.



* During his visit to the Western Isles of Scotland in 1773, Creator/SamuelJohnson was told that everyone on a certain island normally caught colds shortly after the quarterly ferry boat arrived. He thought the story unlikely, since the contemporary understanding was that the common cold was caused by exposure to cold, but nevertheless reported the conversation faithfully in his book about the trip. The story was eventually referenced as evidence to support the germ theory of disease.
