%% * In one ''FantasyIsland'' a woman was given a potion to become beautiful for a time (an hour??) if she took one drop. Complications ensued and she was forcibly made to drink the whole bottle on the grounds that "if one drop is good the whole bottle is better!" She became a harridan.

* While the ''MetroidPrime'' series has the already ToxicPhlebotinum Phazon, ''Corruption'' gives Samus a way to harness it as [[SuperMode Hypermode]]. If Samus is exposed to large amounts of Phazon or she stays in Hypermode for too long, it overloads and she must dump all of the Phazon in the system or she will [[NonstandardGameOver turn into another]] [[EvilTwin Dark Samus]].

** ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'': lowers Essence, losing too much causes death
** ''TabletopGame/{{Cyberpunk}} 2020'': lowers Humanity, losing too much causes Cyberpsychosis

to:

** ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'': lowers Getting cyberware and bioware installed damages Essence, losing which is essentially the connection of the body to the soul. While higher grade 'ware can dramatically reduce the impact, having too low essence can, but not always, result in sociopathic tendencies, cyberpsychosis, dissociation, personality loss, and other physical maladies like becoming resistant to cloned replacement parts and picking up a laundry list of allergies along the way. Essence also provides a solid cap on how much causes death
modification somebody can take: if Essence reaches zero for whatever reason, the person in question dies.

Added DiffLines:

* In Marc Cabot's novella ''And All His Heart's Desires,'' the Jade Throne, an artifact of the Indian goddess Rati, gives the first worshipper who touches it a small blessing from Rati once per lunar month. When the hero of the story finds it, it hasn't been touched for ''hundreds of years.'' He touches it. Hilarity ensues. (Did we mention that Rati is the Goddess of [[spoiler: Sex]]?)

Added DiffLines:

* A complicated version in ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}''. Patterson tech gives off minkowski radiation, which is agonizing to monsters. However, with enough exposure monsters can mutate, gaining new abilities and appearances. But if they get too much it comes full circle and kills them. In basic terms, they get hurt by too much phlebotinum ''and'' too little.
