** 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.

** 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]].

* The similarly named Blight from ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' is actually a collection of curses cast upon the Tribunal Temple and the rest of Vvardenfell by [[PhysicalGod Dagoth-Ur]] and spread with the sand storms from the Red Mountain.
** Dagoth Ur ''plans'' to turn Corprus (essentially divinity channelled from the heart by Dagoth Ur. It has [[BodyHorror horrific]] effects, and causes you to fall under Dagoth's influence to boot) into a full-fledged version of this. As it was, while the origins and effects falls squarely here, it was ''much'' too non-infectious to be a true Plague (the only reason why there are a fair number of victims around is that -- in the likely event that it doesn't kill you -- it makes you into TheAgeless, and it's been around for centuries).

* In ''Literature/TheTraitorSonCycle'', the BigBad crafts a curse that spreads and behaves like a deadly disease. It manages to scour two countries before a cure (also magical) is found.

* 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.
