* In ''Manga/FruitsBasket'', [[spoiler: Kyo's true form]] smells so bad that Tohru vomits the first time she encounters it. How evil it is depends on who you ask, but the consensus is that it is NOT friendly.

* In ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'', Chaos is said to have a cloying, sickening odor, like candy floss crossed with rotten meat. And then there's Nurgle cultists, who celebrate sickness and filth. The servants of Nurgle (or anything relating to him), act as an example due to being rotting walking corpses who exude terrible scents of every rancid bodily odor known to man and some known only to the Xenos.

* Watanuki from ''Manga/XxxHOLiC'' came across some situations like this, but he's the only one who can sense it. One example is at Himawari's friend's school where the game, Angel, is taking place. Domeki can't smell it. It's like some sort of spiritual stench that only Watanuki can smell, and it got worse as he got closer to the threat taking hold.

* According to veteran stories, battlefields stink. Burnt wood, metal and rubber, rotting dead bodies, burning oil and fuel, decay and mud. Burying the dead and removing the debris from the fields is a foremost task in the aftermath of a battle, before diseases set in. Obviously, the Western Front of UsefulNotes/WorldWarI is the worst with a years long stalemate allowing all these problems to pile up to a degree and scale no one imagined possible before.
