*** Similarly, instead of the paladin's Divine Health ability (which renders them immune to disease), Antipaladins gain the "Plaguebringer" ability at 4th level, which merely renders them immune to the ''effects'' of diseases but still allows them to carry and spread the disease.

* Some of the demons described in the ArsGoetia could be called upon to evoke various kinds of this. Thing is, only one of them, Marbas, was a generalist (his other powers being curing disease, and BalefulPolymorph. One leads to quite a con game, the other to [[FridgeHorror the ultimate in biological warfare]]). Leraje, Sabnock, and Vepar apparently all specialized in battlefield disease. Leraje caused arrow wounds to putrefy, while Sabnock and Vepar called maggots in to colonize wounds in general.

* In Hawaiian Mythology, although Poli'ahu was primarily a goddess of [[AnIcePerson snow and ice]], she did inflict chills and fever on her rival for love, Hinaikamalama [[spoiler: actually a form of the fire goddess Pele, which, besides them being diametrically-opposed elemental forces, is a ''major'' reason they don't get along]], and on her ex-fiancé Aiwohikupua for [[YourCheatingHeart cheating on her]] with Hinaikamalama on what would have been their wedding day.

** In general, pestilence falls under Peryite, as the realm of the [[PowersThatBe [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] Peryite.of Pestilence, has this fall within his sphere. Given [[AnthropomorphicPersonification the nature]] of most deities in the series, one could say that he is the very ''embodiment'' of pestilence. His idea of a "blessing" toward his followers is to [[BlessedWithSuck afflict them with disease]]. Peryite is connected to the creation of the [[MysticalPlague Thrassian Plague]], which was unleashed on Tamriel by the Sload ("slug-men" of Thras) in the 1st and wiped out half the continent's population. The ending of his ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' quest implies that he is preparing a new plague meant to "cover the world" with his "blessing".

* ''Videogame/DarkSouls'' has Gravelord Nito. In addition to his being the lord of the dead, he also is associated with disease and plague. This is how he contributed to the war against the Everlasting Dragons: he created a great plague that swept through the Dragons' forces. In the game itself, all of his attacks inflict the "Toxic" status effect. The "disasters" his Gravelord Servants perpetuate online are likened to a disease as well, being referred to as an "infection" and "spreading" to multiple players rather than just one at a time.

** Eingyi is a pyromancer from the Great Swamp, exiled for having committed the "heresy" of inventing the Poison Cloud and Toxic Cloud pyromancy spells. His [[BodyHorror egg-burdened]] state in the game itself prevents him from using these abilities, but he can teach them to the player if they earn his trust.

* 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.]]

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]].
