* ''Film/TerminatorSalvation'': Marcus Wright is about to be executed by lethal injection when he is visited by the terminally ill Dr. Serena Kogan to convince him to volunteer his body to science.

* [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in ''Anime/FairyTail'': [[spoiler:At first, this is heavily implied to be how the First Guild Master of Fairy Tail, Mavis Vermilion, died. She used the same {{Curse}} as Zeref that rendered her immortal and killed those she loved, whose only CurseEscapeClause is when one forgets the value of life. She suffered a rather ironic death after Zeref expressed love to her through a kiss and seemingly broke the curse for Mavis, leaving her vulnerable to Zeref's curse, thus killing her.]] In reality, [[spoiler:Mavis ''didn't'' die; while her body was, for all intents and purposes, clinically dead, her soul was still tethered to her body, and it wasn't until nearly a century later that she was resurrected. She states that she ''forced'' herself to believe she didn't love Zeref, out of fear that the exact same thing would happen to him. Oh, and it [[SubvertedTrope wasn't]] a KissOfDeath; she just apparently didn't want to tell the rest of the guild that it was actually OutWithABang.]]

* In ''Anime/FairyTail'', [[spoiler:This is ultimately how the First Guild Master of Fairy Tail, Mavis Vermilion, died. She used the same Black Magic as Zeref that rendered her immortal and killed those she loved, a curse that can only be controlled when one forgets the value of life. She suffered a rather ironic death after Zeref expressed love to her through a kiss and broke the curse for Mavis leaving her vulnerable to Zeref's curse, thus killing her.]]

* One of the most poignant moments in ''XenaWarriorPrincess'' is when she has to kill her undead lover Marcus (long story). She stabs him with his sword, and then passionately kisses him as he dies in her arms.

* ComicBook/TeenTitans villain Cheshire uses a much more gruesome version of this in an issue of ComicBook/SecretSix. She manages to convince a mercenary who is raiding her home [[MuggingTheMonster to try to rape her]]. She then kisses him, and bites off his lower lip in the process. Since her saliva is poisoned by a false tooth, this lets the toxin into his bloodstream and [[AssholeVictim he dies in horrific pain.]]

* From ''Manga/{{Basilisk}}'', this is Kagero's primary ability. Whenever she gets aroused, she starts [[PoisonousPerson breathing out a deadly poison]], thus, whoever she kisses, she kills. And in fact this is how she kills [[spoiler:Koushirou Chikuma: since he's blind, Saemon confuses him via imitating Akeginu's voice, then Kagerou slips him a deadly kiss]]. Later, [[spoiler: she tries to use this ability on Tenzen alongside a NeckSnap but it fails since his powers is coming BackFromTheDead]], and at the end [[spoiler:only Oboro's Mystic Eyes could stop her from poisoning Gennosuke after Tenzen [[BreakTheCutie had driven her insane]] through ColdBloodedTorture.]]



* In ''LightNovel/{{Campione}}'', Athena can do this by breathing the "Winds of Death" into the other person's mouth. She specifically used this method on Godou because the titular warriors are extremely resistant to external magic, but that resistance can be bypassed via the mouth. In the anime, Athena ironically gets this pulled on her by Metis, who drains her life energy and powers with a kiss, though Athena barely manages to survive.
* In ''Manga/{{Dokuhime}}'' to kiss or come into any contact with a Poison Princess is deadly.
* High school student Ooshima in ''Manga/{{Emerging}}'' throws caution to the wind and shares a first kiss with his girlfriend, who is infected with a [[ThePlague fatal virus]]...making this example a kind of Suicide-by-Kiss.
* Izumi from ''Manga/FullMoonOSagashite'' prefers obtaining souls of dying young girls via kisses, because it's "more pleasant" than a scythe. [[spoiler: When he tries it on Mitsuki, Takuto stops him.]]
* ''Manga/LoveHina'': Naru Narusegawa, when possessed by a demon sealed within a sword, was also implied to have gained the ability to sap people's life force by kissing them.



* Ran from ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'' has the power to suck the youth from someone by kissing them. She usually tries to use the power on an unsuspecting Ataru, who just thinks she liked him. She can also reverse the process with another kiss.\\\
Later in the manga, her "youth-stealing kiss" gets nerfed by the RuleOfFunny, as all it does is essentialy making the victims act like stereotypical Japanese senior-citizens.



* In ''Anime/SailorMoon'', one of Minako/Venus's [[LightIsGood light/energy]] attacks is called "Love and Beauty Shock" and she delivers it via first mimicking a kissing gesture and creating a heart-shaped projectile, then shooting the latter on her enemies.

* In ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'' Carly (as her SuperPoweredEvilSide) made Jack think that he had lost their duel and that she had done this to him, killing him with her kiss and turning him into a Dark Signer like herself (and that the world had been turned into a Hell that they could [[WeCanRuleTogether rule as king and queen]]). Possibly, she was indeed capable of doing this; however, [[spoiler: it was all an illusion meant to distract him from the actual move she intended to use to finish him off, and he snapped out of it before she managed it.]]

* Mireille Bouquet from ''Anime/{{Noir}}'' receives an excessively long one of these [[LesYay from a woman named Silvana Greone]], aka [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Intoccabile]]. And she tries to punch her afterwards (episode 9, 11:25), as said girl is a MafiaPrincess so the message behind the gesture is clear, and Intoccabile has scared the wits outta her since they first met as children. It's also clear that Silvana does it both for the fear effect and purely to fuck with Mireille's head some more.
