* Two of the antagonists in ''Literature/ChroniclesOfAncientDarkness'' -- [[spoiler:Tenris]] and Seshru -- are shown to be prehistoric versions of this trope. The former uses his knowledge to create a terrible sickness that drives the victims insane before killing them, spreading it across the Forest as a plague through [[spoiler:poisoned juniper berries]]. The latter shows more subtlety by sedating a polar bear to make it easier to capture and poisoning crowberries Torak eats. Said berries render him unconscious and when he wakes up, his limbs are paralyzed and he can do nothing but argue with Seshru.
