* ''TabletopGame/D20Modern'' sourcebooks ''d20 Future'' and ''d20 Apocalypse'' provide rules for giving characters mutations, with the soft-SF {{Handwave}} of radiation or other mutagens. ''d20 Modern'' is explicitly a "cinematic" game, meaning everything can be justified by RuleOfCool, meaning this trope is meant to be in full play. However, the two books also offer sidebars discussing a sliding scale of more realistic treatments of mutation and exposure to radiation.

A SuperTrope to NuclearNasty, which specifically talks about ''monsters'' created by radiation. Frequently this trope needs RadiationImmuneMutants as a {{Required Secondary Power|s}}. The predecessors to this trope are LightningCanDoAnything and ChemistryCanDoAnything; before the discovery of nuclear power, electricity and chemicals were the go-to source for magical do-anything phlebotinum. One of its successors is QuantumMechanicsCanDoAnything.

QuantumMechanicsCanDoAnything. Sometimes overlaps with ToxicWasteCanDoAnything when we're talking about nuclear waste.

* Averted ComicBook/PostCrisis in ''Comicbook/{{Superman}}'' (albeit played straight elsewhere in Franchise/TheDCU.) The chronic health problems that plague ComicBook/LexLuthor in both his comic book and cartoon series appearances are a result of exposure to the KryptoniteRing he wore for quite some time. While it certainly hurts Comicbook/{{Superman}} very quickly, having it around you for ''years'' will have the same effect any kind of radiation will.
** Played straight by Superman villain Neutron, and Supergirl villain Reactron, both of whom have the ability to control and project nuclear radiation.
* Deconstructed in the origin of the Cyborg Superman. In a pastiche of the ComicBook/FantasticFour, a space shuttle crew is exposed to cosmic radiation but suffer vastly detrimental effects. Two are killed immediately and resurrected in painful or dangerous forms, eventually leading them to suicide, and one is nearly drawn into an alternate dimension. The fourth member of the crew, Hank Henshaw, suffers an accelerated radiation poisoning which rots away his body. However, Henshaw's mind quickly returns to life with {{technopath}}ic abilities.
** And rampaging sociopathy.

* The protagonist of ''Film/TheMartian'' describes the precautions taken so that the crew would not accidentally come anywhere near the RTG...then digs it up and installs it inside the rover to keep himself warm.

** Ironically, some of the birds found in the Exclusion Zone are actually [[https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/04/140424223057.htm much healthier than other birds]]. In response to the elevated levels of radiation, the birds produce more antioxidants in their cells, which protect their cells from ionizing radiation, and as a side effect, makes them live longer and healthier lives.
