* Due to his... unusual... hobbies, EarlCain Hargreaves of ''{{Godchild}}'' is very knowledgeable in-- and collects-- poisons. This becomes relevant to the plot [[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer surprisingly often.]]

** From ''Oblivion'' onwards, poisoning is a subset of Alchemy skill. In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', the master trainer of Alchemy is a Dark Brotherhood assassin who is this trope. You also can become this, and the Brotherhood offers you a unique poison ingredient for the assassination of [[spoiler: Emperor Titus Mede II]] (however, it's strong enough to take half HP from [[BonusBoss the Ebony Warrior]]). ** Being a max pickpocket in ''Skyrim'' also allows you to poison opponents by putting vials in their inventory without them realizing it until they drop dead.

** The Crannogmen of the Neck are infamous throughout Westeros (including in the Iron Isles) for using a wide range of weapons poisons, drugs and other tricks delivered either by blades or more sneaky means... like arrows, darts, liquids or powders. Many are specifically designed with terror-inducing effects, rather than going for quicker, less attributable deaths. Such as mimicking memorably scary diseases like necrotising fasciitis, typhoid, cholera or ebola: sometimes rolled into one distinctly unpleasant package. All this is to make sure people learn to obey the Keep Out request. If they were so inclined, they could probably pull off MakeItLookLikeAnAccident-styles of assassinations quite easily, instead.

* Livia, and later Agrippina, from ''Series/IClaudius''. Livia's simple "Don't touch the figs" will send ''chills up your spine''. ** A one-scene wonder has Livia talking shop - [[DontExplainTheJoke by which we mean multiple murder by chemical means]] - with Martina, another Master Poisoner, played by the same actress who portrayed the cheerfully insane Nursie in {{Blackadder}}. The two debate the relative merits of different poisons and their antidotes over dinner, only for Martina to go white with fear at the sudden thought that Livia might have poisoned her. Livia laughs it off, but the viewer expects Martina to drop dead at any moment, and her ultimate fate is left unspecified.
