* In ''VideoGame/MarioKartDoubleDash'', only one attack can take effect at a time. A Kart spinning from a banana peel might shrug off Lightning-Strike Shrinking and a dozen red-shell hits. On the other hand, anything (besides Lightning) that's powerful enough will override a lesser effect. You ''can'' get catapulted by an explosion, rolled by a Giant Bowser Shell, or knocked back by a Mushroom-boosting or Power-Starred Kart.

* Zig-zagged in ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' with regards to [[StandardStatusEffects the Poison and Toxic status effects]]: although resistance to both is a single stat, they each have a separate buildup meter, so you can be afflicted by ''[[FromBadToWorse both at once]]''. However, there are different ''forms'' of Poison and Toxic, with varying duration and rates of damage, that can only be applied one at a time, favoring the one you already have. Some player take advantage of this while going through [[VideoGame/DarkSoulsI Blighttown]], intentionally using [[DungFu Dung Pies]] [[ViolationOfCommonSense to inflict Toxic on themselves so they'll be immune to Toxic from Blowdart Snipers]] (which is more than three times as damaging).

* A form of this occurs in the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' book ''Discworld/MakingMoney'' when Topsy Lavish has a contract put out on Moist von Lipwig. This actually protects Moist, as the Assassin's Guild won't take two separate contracts on the same person and Moist is only in danger if the dog doesn't live out a natural lifespan.

* One boss in ''BunnyMustDie'' attempts to curse Bunny in his death throes. It doesn't work, because she was cursed in the backstory.

* Contrary to the main series, ''[[TabletopGame/PokemonTabletopAdventures Pokemon Tabletop United]]'' averts this. Pokémon can easily be affected with multiple status ailments at the same time. Houndoom even gets a unique Ability that allows it to automatically poison anyone it inflicts a Burn on.

* Curses - and rules for using them - are detailed rather thoroughly in the ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}'' setting, and this is one of the most important ones. (The Vistani can't, for example, curse one of the Darklords, as even ''being'' a Darklord is one of the worst curses in the setting.)

** In addition, a Generation VII Pokémon named Komala has an ability called "Comatose" which renders it immune to status effects because the treats it like it has "Sleep" despite acting normally. The big downside to this is that Komala also takes attacks as though it were asleep, meaning moves like Dream Eater and Nightmare will always work on it.

** If someone ''attempts'' to kill you with the Death Note, but writes your name incorrectly four times, you can no longer be affected by that Death Note. Trying to exploit this loophole by misspelling your own name four times [[ObviousRulePatch will kill you]].
