* TheDragon of ''[[Literature/TheLaundrySeries Jennifer Morgue]]'', by Charles Stross, has a soul-eating daemon bound to her. The means of operation is more of a bite than a kiss, however.

* Poison Ivy from ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'' uses this as her preferred method for killing. She uses this to kill her former boss Dr. Woodrue as revenge for trying to kill her, two policemen when she breaks Mr. Freeze out of Arkham, and once off-screen to a victim at the Gotham airport. She seduces Batman and Robin through the film to [[BondBreaker break them apart fighting over her]] and eventually planned to kill them by sharing a kiss with each of them. [[spoiler:She eventually gets Robin alone in her lair and after [[JustBetweenYouAndMe explaining what she and Freeze have planned as a sign of trust]] she finally succeeds in kissing Robin, as a way of [[MotivationalKiss wishing him luck]]. But Robin had actually [[OutGambitted been one step ahead of her]] and wore [[CrazyPrepared rubber lips]] to protect himself incase her love for him was a lie, essentially stealing a kiss from her and being the only one in the film to [[NoSell survive a kiss with her]].]]

* 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 the ''StarWars'' [[Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse Expanded Universe]] novel ''Darth Bane: Path of Destruction'', Bane's sometime helper Githany attempts to kill him by means of poisons applied to her lips. Upon kissing him - more than once, which ups the dosage, she gets out of sight to take the required antidotes. [[spoiler:Bane detects and counters the poison with the Force...except there were two poisons, an easier one to lull him into thinking he was now safe, and a harder to detect one that nearly kills him.]]

* ComicBook/{{Rogue}}'s power in ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' is stealing other people's life force [[PowerCopying and abilities]] by touching them. She first discovered her power by kissing her boyfriend for the first time, putting him in a coma. While any skin-to-skin contact will do the trick, for a long time her preferred means of using her power on others was to kiss them (at least men). She hasn't done this in awhile, however. Taking off her gloves has long been a sign that she means business.

* [[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.]]

* 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.]]
