* The MagicTheGathering novel Time Spiral, Radha uses this to defeat Greht. She breaks his hold on his horde, he gets if back by starting a ridiculously powerful spell, and Radha starts feeding him more mana. This doesn't end well for him.

* Pictured at the top is Bizarro from ''Series/{{Smallville}}'', who reacts in the opposite manner to kryptonite that Clark does. He gains strength from green kryptonite, which depowers and poisons Clark. When exposed to blue kryptonite, which strips Clark of his powers for as long as it's in contact, he gains a massive power boost and explodes.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', {{Determinat|or}}ion turns out to be a physical substance that can be [[HumanResources extracted from SOULs]]. It's well known that humans have much more of it than monsters -- because monsters are made mostly of magic, while humans are made mostly of water, attempting to artificially increase a monster's determination tends to overwhelm their body and ''melt'' them. You can see the results of this in the GoldenEnding path as the Amalgamates, partially-melted monsters that had "[[OnlyMostlyDead fallen down]]" and were injected with determination as an experiment in preserving monster [=SOULs=], only to merge together into terrifying abominations [[spoiler:that turn out to be pretty much unchanged mentally, so they end up just returning to their families in the end.]] In any other path, you can see the process directly [[spoiler:by killing Undyne, who is so determined not to die at your hands that she ''naturally generates'' enough determination to overload her body and melt.]]

* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5'' explains that the reason [[BigBad Wesker]] can perform inhuman feats like [[FlashStep avoiding bullets]] and having super strength is due to [[spoiler: an experimental virus within in his body and said virus needs to be kept in check with a specialized serum. Jill suggests to Chris that he should inject Wesker with more of the serum to make the virus unstable. When Chris does so, Wesker writhes in pain and is weakened enough for Chris and Sheva to attack him directly and succeed. Wesker decides to go for the last resort route by infecting himself with Ouroboros to get even stronger.]]

* ''IronManArmoredAdventures'' has this in the episode "Best Served Cold". Whitney Stane has been over-using the Madame Masque image inducer, and the phlebotinum that powers it has started to affect her brain. Tony has to travel to the arctic to find the raw ore form of the material to help cure her [[spoiler:but in the end ends up having to use a small amount from the supply that powers his pacemaker.]]
* In ''AdventuresOfTheGummiBears'', the Gummi Glen Gummis at one point corner Toady and he decides to drink a whole keg of Gummiberry Juice and everyone scrambles back for the reaction for that much a dosage. Sure enough, Toady has a massive overdose that leads him to uncontrollably rocketing back to Duke Igthorn empty handed.

* A gameplay example in the VideoGame/MetalSlug serie: being hit by certain substances will cause your character to transform into a mummy, zombie or ape, the latter two having some advantages (such as subverting OneHitPointWonder and being able to climb on railings). A second dose is however fatal.

* all known life on this planet runs on water as a vital component, and you can even overdose on that. It's safe to say that too much of anything we need could be...unpleasant.

* In ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'', the mysterious black soul-like stuff called "Humanity" is useful for all kinds of things, most notably reversing the effects of Hollowing on an Undead. Naturally, players find themselves encouraged to collect as much of it as they can, and several other characters are shown harvesting it for their own goals. On the other hand, the very dark fate of New Londo and the existence of the Abyss (a dimension of pure darkness that causes instant death to anyone who enters it unprotected) suggest that Humanity is dangerous stuff if mishandled. This is then confirmed in the ''Artorias of the Abyss'' DLC, which shows that [[spoiler:the old kingdom of Oolacile was annihilated when its people tried to feed off of a "primeval human"'s mother lode of Humanity, resulting in BodyHorror, mass insanity, and the presumed first appearance of the Abyss.]]

** In D&D and its successor ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'', the [[MagicStaff Staff of the Magi]] is recharged by letting it consume the power of incoming spells. If the user tries to make it absorb more than its capacity, it explodes with enough force to kill a full-grown dragon or suck the user into a wormhole.
