* [[GreenRocks Raw lyrium]] in ''Franchise/DragonAge'' is extremely toxic. The only people who can safely handle it are Dwarves and the Tranquil. Even they run the risk of lyrium poisoning by either breathing it in or getting it in their bloodstream. Dwarves usually transport lyrium in carefully sealed barrels before processing it. None of these measures are sufficient for handling [[ToxicPhlebotinum Red Lyrium]], a far more powerful and dangerous version of lyrium. As Varric puts it, Red Lyrium is lyrium like a dragon is a lizard. [[spoiler:Makes sense when it's revealed that Red Lyrium is lyrium Tainted by the [[MysticalPlague Blight]].]]

* Kryptonite needs to be kept in lead to protect Franchise/{{Superman}}, or [[KryptoniteProofSuit he needs to be in lead to protect himself from it]]. (Which by extension means that Franchise/{{Batman}} has a lead compartment in his utility belt since he [[CrazyPrepared always has kryptonite]].) Because it's radioactive, Kryptonite can also be dangerous to humans after prolonged exposure, so putting it in lead is really for everyone's protection. SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor learned this the hard way when he discovered he'd given himself cancer with the stuff.

* Literature/LoneWolf's magical sword, the Sommerswerd, radiates such goodly power that it acts as a beacon to evil beings. On the occasions when Lone Wolf has to sneak into the hometurf of such beings, he has to keep the Sommerswerd sheathed in a Korlinium scabbard. The people who give him the scabbard warn him that the instant he draws the sword his cover will be blown by the sword's aura, so he should only wield it when he's in striking distance of the BigBad.

** Lone Wolf's lieutenant in the New Order series has the same problem with the Moonstone, which he carries in a Korlinium-laced satchel during his travels, as to not attract the attention of Naar's agents. It works quite well.



* [[Website/{{Fenspace}} Handwavium]] is a somewhat downplayed example, merely requiring gloves and a dust-mask for most uses. [[Series/TopGear Jeremy Clarkson]] apparently insisted on a full HazmatSuit when handling it himself, but then that was ''probably'' RuleOfFunny in-universe.

* ''WebVideo/DrHorriblesSingAlongBlog'': Wonderflonium may or may not be this. We see it in a case with a warning, but the warning merely cautions the reader not to bounce the Wonderflonium.

* ''Film/{{Moonraker}}'': the scientists in Hugo Drax's lab use manipulators for part of their processing of the deadly poison (as seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hIAfkoi8w24 here, starting at 1:15]]). Unfortunately they use manual manipulation outside a sealed area for the rest, so after Film/JamesBond fools around with the vials one of them is knocked down and broken, killing them (2:15-3:50).
