* In William King's TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} SpaceWolf novel ''Grey Hunters'', the Chaos forces cause a green and yellow fog to boil up. It obscures vision, allows their enemies to sneak up, and contains some kind of poison.

* ''Literature/TalesOfTheMagicLand'' (a series of loose Russian translations of the ''WizardOfOz'' books) has a book aptly named ''The Yellow Fog'' where a witch named Arachna who attempts to subdue the Magic Land with the titular fog. While not lethal (it's meant to subdue rather than exterminate, after all), it has several negative effects: it's toxic, for one, and it also blocks off the sun leading to intense cold in the usually winterless Magic Land.

* The Mind Fog is a creepy and illegal magical effect in ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles''. It renders those touched by it dumbstruck and defenseless to anything unaffected by it.

* Episode 4 of ''Series/TheCrown2016'' covers the Great Smog of 1952. As detailed in RealLife below, it was a noxious soup of fog and vehicle exhaust that was exacerbated by coal smoke from furnaces. The hospitals are quickly overwhelmed by respiratory patients and both Winston Churchill's opponents and fellow Conservatives try unavailingly to convince him that the smog is a serious problem of human origin--it gets so bad that they encourage the young Queen Elizabeth to intervene with him. He only realizes the depth of his mistake when the lack of visibility results in his young secretary being fatally struck by a bus, and he sees just how swamped the hospital is when he visits the morgue.

The ending titles of the episode inform viewers that 4,000 deaths in the following months were attributed to the smog, but more recent research raises the estimate to ''12,000.''

* In the first of the ''Literature/{{Deathlands}}'' novels, the Darks are protected by this trope, apparently a pre-WW3 weapon called Project Cerberus used to guard the MAT-TRANS PortalNetwork (or at least that particular gate).
