* In the ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'' story "No Future", the four dreaded Dark Judges accidentally ended up in a future Earth populated solely by very technologyically advanced {{Transhuman}}s. Judge Mortis was a bit confused that his [[MakeThemRot rotting touch]] had zero effect on his would-be victim, until the latter explained that their environment protects them from all contagions, including Mortis himself.

* VideoGame/CastlevaniaLordsOfShadow2: Being a vampire cursed with CompleteImmortality, Gabriel Belmont/Dracula is naturally immune to all poisons and diseases, such as when he is exposed to a genetically-engineered virus that turns humans into monsters instantly, he is completely unaffected. There are not even ill effects for drinking their corrupted blood.

* Dragons in ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' are immune to all diseases, which is good considering that their massive size often makes personal hygiene a hassle.

* This is one of the superhuman, vaguely-[[OurElvesAreBetter elven]] characteristics popularly attributed to [[RoyalBlood the Targaryens]] in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', with Daenerys being confident enough of this that she personally tends to people dying of the flux ([[CallARabbitASmeerp i.e. dysentery]]). As to the accuracy of this belief, there are three historical cases related in the books of Targaryens getting ill (Daeron II and his two immediate heirs died in the Great Spring Sickness), [[spoiler:and Dany is displaying mysterious symptoms of ''something'' at the end of ''A Dance with Dragons''.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}}'', Wolverine's HealingFactor also grants him quick recovery from almost any disease. This becomes a major plot point in a two-part episode: Bishop and Cable both travel back in time to prevent a bioengineered plague from wiping out mutantkin; the former is trying to prevent the disease entirely to save billions of lives in the near future, the latter is from ''further'' in the future where the virus' effect stabilized aspects of the mutant gene preventing worldwide extinction of both humans and mutants. Cable solves the problem by allowing Wolverine to get infected with the plague. Wolverine recovers in minutes, and his immune system now has antibodies that can be used to manufacture a vaccine for the plague, preventing the deadly epidemic while passing along the beneficial aspects required to preserve Cable's timeline.

** In all games save ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsArena Arena]]'', being a vampire renders you immune to disease, which is a little ironic considering that you become one by ''contracting'' a disease (variously known as vampirism, porphyric hemophilia, or sanguinare vampiris depending on the game).

This also allows for a OneCurseLimit and HybridOverkillAvoidance with lycanthropy, as the two diseases are mutually exclusive (barring cheats or mods).
