* ''{{BIONICLE}}'': The Dreaming Plague, caused by [[spoiler:Annona, a being that feasts on dreams]]. Its victims lose the ability to dream, slowly turning them violent, insane, and ultimately, dead. It almost wiped out the Iron Tribe, and the handful of survivors were shunned by all the other tribes for fear of carrying the disease.

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'', Gargamel's EvilPlan was to spread a magical disease called the hopping cough, which caused a cough that made the victims jump violently. (The idea was that if the smurfs caught it, he could find and catch them more easily -- Or in the non-Bowdlerized version, the illness was simply fatal if left untreated.) He even showed some smarts this time, and planned to ambush them at the places where the ingredients for a cure could be found. Unfortunately for the villain, he eventually [[HoistByHisOwnPetard caught it himself]] while looking for them, and Papa Smurf did indeed manage to make the cure.

* This is shown in {{Sophocles}}' ''Theatre/OedipusTheKing'': Oedipus's actions (killing his father, marrying his mother) unknowingly brought blight and plague ("miasma") to his people. Crops did not grow, stock animals died off, and women suffered from infertility, all because Oedipus's actions went against classical concepts of morality.

Perhaps a necromancer is summoning dark magic to bring about the ZombieApocalypse, worshippers of the God of Disease call upon their master to bring vengeance upon their enemies, or a shaman uses a forbidden curse in the vain hopes that it keeps his people from being wiped out. Whatever the reasons behind it, the use of disease-based magic is nearly always seen as an evil act for the sheer amount of suffering it can bring about.
