* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' has this as a major damage type in 4th Edition, as well as it being one of the few ways to put down a troll for good. Earlier editions have it too, with spells such as Acid Fog, and a black dragon's acid breath. And whenever the stuff is illustrated, expect it to be a bright green.

* ''Film/AlienVsPredator'' is inconsistent with the lethality of Alien blood. A hunter's arm is seared off by a splash of facehugger blood, and another unfortunate human has his skull melted by a blast of Xenomorph blood to the face. However, the first film also presents it as mild enough to use for body scarification. This is actually a nod to the previous AVP fluff, where the Predators are said to have antacid blood that neutralizes the Aliens' acid blood. It will damages their skin but stops once it reaches their blood.

* ''TabletopGame/RogueTrader'' has two separate chemicals available that work like this. One is a substance that will dissolve anything except pure silica glass, tho the reaction causes it to quickly become inert in process. The other is a Dark Eldar {{poison|IsCorrosive}} created from a Stryxis-made "universal solvent", weaponized through a clever use of containment fields.

* ''Film/DeepRising'' features giant worms with stomach acids so strong that they get their nutrition by merely engulfing and digesting their prey alive. The acting effects of this are shown in one particularly gory sequence appropriately known as [[BodyHorror "half-digested Billy"]].

* A very common damage type in ''{{Mortasheen}}'', as well as a more specific Corrosive type of damage that specifically does heavy damage to metal (Perfect for the MechaMooks the game has as its main villains)

* ''Film/SupermanIII'' featured "beltric acid," which became super-corrosive if it heated up far enough. It ends up as a ChekhovsGun in the final fight against the rogue computer.

There's also a completely unguarded pit filled with some kind of roiling acid present at the junkyard battle, seemingly [[RuleOfCool just because]].

* Comes shaped as a CoolSword in Stuart Hopen's ''Warp Angel'', the setting has a gladiatorial weapon known as an 'acid sword'. An acid sword is a force-field projecting hilt that shapes an extremely corrosive pool of acid into a blade. Getting hit by one tends to result in limbs getting melted off and large gouges getting burnt into flesh. The acid sword is so corrosive that, with the exception of the force field of another acid sword, the blade will dissolve through anything in the story setting including hardened far-future alloys.
