* [[BigBad Dagoth Ur]] from ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' could be somewhat of an example. He uses his magically-achieved godhood to spread coprus disease across the island of Vvardenfell. If the disease is left unchecked, it horribly disfigures and kills its victims, but if he uses his power to direct the disease, the disfigurations make the infected into powerful, mindless servants to help him.
** This is the sphere of the Daedric Prince known as Peryite.

* 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]]).

* The necromancer class of ''GuildWars2'' can easily become one of these if built properly, but their {{Plaguemaster}} tendencies really shine when they use their elite skill, ''Plague'', which turns them into a literal cloud of pestilence that damages, [[StandardStatusEffects poisons, bleeds, weakens, blinds, and cripples]] all enemies stupid enough to get too close. For extra malice, the necromancer can choose exactly when they wish to apply most of these conditions.

* The Plague Doctor from TheFearMythos spreads disease wherever he goes. To a lesser extent, there are also a number of seemingly normal medical doctors who serve him, and intentionally spread disease to the people they're supposedly trying to save.
