* In [[Literature/BooksOfMaccabees 2nd Maccabees]] chapter 9, Antiochus IV was stricken with such a devastating illness by the Lord that his entire army was sickened by the smell and no one could even come close enough to carry him around on a litter. Eventually even the king couldn't stand the smell of himself and decided to make amends with the Jewish people and God.

** The titular house from ''The Shunned House'' is noted as positively reeking of decay and foulness. [[spoiler: Turns out to be caused by some gargantuan entity buried beneath it. Once it's been dissolved with acid, the smell disappears]]

** This is said to be the case for Scamps, a species of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]] who have a rancid smell. ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'''s "Whom Gods Annoy" quest centers around a poor Leyawiin resident cursed with a staff that summons Scamps to stink up her home and annoy the hell out of her. While Scamps are generally in the service of [[OmnicidalManiac Mehrunes Dagon]], the staff was created by Sheogorath, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of [[MadGod Madness]] and a morbid practical joker.

** Coldharbour is the [[EldritchLocation Daedric plane]] of Molag Bal, Daedric Prince of [[TheCorrupter Domination and Corruption]]. The ground is sludge, the sky is on fire, and the [[EvilIsDeathlyCold air is freezing]]. It resembles a ruined and desecrated copy of Nirn that is filled with suffering and [[BloodyBowelsOfHell "spattered" with blood and excrement]]. It contains charnel houses full of the dead and slave pens beyond count. If that weren't all horrifying enough, it is said that the smell alone is enough to break most mortals. It is said that no mortals willingly visit this place except in error.

* All of planet Jasper in ''ComicBook/{{Copperhead}}'' smells like rotten eggs - partly due to its mining industry, partly due to its borderline-lawless reputation per this trope.

** The Sload are a race of "slugmen" native to Thras, an archipelago to the southwest of Tamriel. While they themselves operate on a BlueAndOrangeMorality, the denizens of Tamriel instead see them as AlwaysChaoticEvil. (Wiping out half of the continent's population with a MysticalPlague tends to spark those sorts of feelings...) The Sload are said to emanate a constant "repugnant" stench.

** Long-time Spidey villain Carnage apparently has an aroma similar to vomit. Given Carnage's habits, this is actually somewhat surprising - the Carnage symbiote is AxeCrazy and blood would seem more likely.

* ''{{Gyo}}'' lives off this trope, since the monsters in question are ''undead fish corpses''. Even living fish doesnt exactly smell good. [[spoiler: As it turns out, the corpses are just a delivery system, the true evil is a form of semi-sentient bacteria that propogates itself using the gasses released by decay. It's even worse for infected humans since they arent technically DEAD.]]



** Most of Creator/HPLovecraft's eldrich horrors are described as smelling rather icky.
