* Some places believed (or still believe) that [[VirginPower sex with a virgin will cure whatever diseases they have]]. [[SexualHarassmentAndRapeTropes (And, no, it doesn't have to be consensual, either.)]] Needless to say, this does not work, and often ends with the (now former) virgin getting sick, too.

* Adam from ''TraumaCenter'' is not only the Plaguemaster, having created GUILT from his own cells, but has also kept himself alive for over a hundred years in his [[NietzscheWannabe quest to "return death" to the world]]. [[spoiler: It's also suggested that the seeds of GUILT are found in all human DNA, so theoretically anyone could be another Adam.]]

* ''VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'' features a doomsday cult calling themselves the Ninth Circle who operate like this. Since vampires in this system become permanent disease carriers if they feed from anyone with a blood-borne illness, they've decided to spread disease in an attempt to hasten [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Gehenna]].

* Qada, the Salve-Maker Asterisk of ''VideoGame/BravelyDefault'', uses this to exterminate his enemies, as well as some allies. All the better for him to profit via selling remedies. Not a pleasant person to say the least.

Typically a Plaguemaster's physical form is just as ravaged by disease as his victims, but due to the character's empathy for illness, they frequently enjoy [[TheImmune immunity]] to the negative effects of the diseases they carry, and may even have supernatural toughness ''because'' they're a walking plague ward. The Plaguemaster's obsession is often [[AstonishinglyAppropriateAppearance reflected in his appearance]], either bloated with rot and cancerous growths, or wasted and skeletal... but the most insidious Plaguemasters [[TheyLookJustLikeEveryoneElse appear perfectly normal]], all the better to spread disease without suspicion (or they are [[TyphoidMary Typhoid Marys]]).
