A subtrope of ThePlague. Compare SyntheticPlague, TheVirus, and DepopulationBomb. Can overlap with FisherKing, in cases where the Mystical Plague is caused by the actions of a kingdom's ruler.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' series there is a great deal of fear of werewolves due to misinformation and concern about the spread of Lycanthropy, a parallel to AIDS, which sufferers of are discriminated against. In ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban Prisoner of Azkaban]]'' Lupin resigns after Snape outs him, and in ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix Order of the Phoenix]]'' it is revealed that Lupin and Sirius already despise Umbridge due to some ani-werewolf legislation she wrote up that makes it near impossible for werewolves to find employment.

** In the series backstory, the Thrassian Plague ravaged Tamriel in the 1st Era. Created by the "slug-men" Sload of Thras, the "coral kingdom" to the southwest of Tamriel, who are known to excel as [[{{Necromancy}} necromancers]] and [[EvilSorcerer Evil Sorcerers]]. The Thrassian Plague killed more than half of Tamriel's population. In response, the nations of Tamriel formed [[TheAlliance the All-Flags Navy]], which ravaged Thras, killed all of the Sload it could find, and finally sunk Thras beneath the sea. (The Sload survived, however, and would raise Thras to the surface once again.)

Unsurprisingly, Peryite, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of [[{{Plaguemaster}} Pestilence]] and Tasks, is rumored to have been associated with the creation of the plague.


Added DiffLines:

** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', Peryite's Daedric quest involves hunting down and kill the leader of a group of his rogue followers who've been inflicted with such a plague. Before going rogue, Peryite intended to have these followers spread a this plague to "cover the world" with his "[[BlessedWithSuck blessing]]".

** Also from the backstory, the Knahaten Flu ravaged Tamriel in the 2nd Era for a period of about 40 years. It is attributed to an [[LizardFolk Argonian]] shaman who created the plague by manipulating the spores of the [[WiseTree Hist]] in retaliation for [[FantasticRacism the awful treatment of his people by the other races]]. Other sources claim that it was a natural disease, but the [[ReptilesAreAbhorrent general distrust of the Argonians throughout Tamriel]] combined with the fact that [[IdealIllnessImmunity Argonians were immune to the disease]] made the "Argonians caused it" story more popular.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind''
** Dagoth Ur's Blight, which spreads via Blight Storms and his minions. It can inflict crippling blight diseases and, most importantly, the Corprus Disease. The Corprus Disease is actually a curse of Dagoth Ur's (essentially divinity channeled from the [[CosmicKeystone Heart of Lorkhan]]) which brings those inflicted under his influence.
** The Crimson Plague in ''Tribunal'' is not a standard disease, but a mystical one spread by the powerful lich Gedna Relvel. You'll need to kill her in order to stop it, and it's [[DamageSpongeBoss no easy task]].
