Compare TerrifiedOfGerms, PlayingSick, MunchausenSyndrome (both when characters know they aren't actually sick), YouDontWantToCatchThis (which is faking an illness for other reasons), MistakenForDying, JewishComplaining (which often involves something that might get them sick).

* One of the --many-- flaws of George in ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'': he is so hipochondriac that he can't even read about symptoms or watching documentaries about a disease without thinking he has it.

* Implied with Saku Hotakainen in the ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent'' prologue. His introducction blurb describes him as "usually 'dying' from something" and he is true to that desciption when he seems to think his current bout of seasickness is going to kill him. He appears in the prologue segment confirming the Rash to be deadly and not just the fast-spreading but non-lethal sickness that it was presented as in the previous segments. This reveal is made via a newscast watched (alone) by Saku's young nephew, whose first reflex is to tell Saku about it. Saku's reponse to the information is hoping he actually has the Rash. If he had it, he would have gotten skin problems long before the vomiting started.

Ironically she is somewhat right here as Gumball's past lack of cleaniness lead to the birth of a super-virus (though her forcing to wash his hand drowned most of the viruses, but one, thus making it vengeful.)
