* In the ''Literature/LoneWolf'' graphic novel ''The Skull of Agarash'', a giak throw a vial at Lone Wolf that he block with his axe, the weapon getting eaten up in the process. Despite this, Lone Wolf identifies it as poison and not acid. (It does seems to produces toxic fumes, though, forcing him to use his PsychicPowers to protect himself.)

* Ares {{magazine}} #3 (July 1980). The Feedback section described ''Attack of the Giant Ants'', a board game that SPI was considering creating. Inspired by the 1950's B movie ''Them'', it had hordes of giant ants with "acidic ant venom", based on the formic acid in RealLife ant venom.

* In-name-only in the ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' series. There are prefixes like "Pestilent", "Toxic", and so on, but corrosive effects only work as HollywoodAcid and even deal ''less'' damage against fleshy enemies as opposed to armor (which it's very strong against), including robots that obviously cannot be poisoned.

* Cashew nuts shells are saturated with skin-irritating, phenolic oil. Which is only corrosive to skin, not metal, as some people claim for cheap shocks. And one of its numerous uses is in medicine (Thus says Paracelsus: Everything is poison, and nothing, for it's the dose that makes a poison).

* The synthetic [[DrugsAreBad narcotic]] [[http://www.snopes.com/medical/drugs/krokodil.asp "krokodil."]] (Disturbing image warning) So called because the skin around the injection site often becomes dry and flaky, like the skin of a crocodile, because it is so [[HollywoodAcid acidic]]. (It's made by cooking up codeine with [[NoodleImplements gasoline, turpentine, and hydrochloric acid, just to name a few things]].)[[note:]]It's cooked up usually by Russian heroin addicts who can no longer afford/easily acquire heroin. Hence the mishmash of rather unsavory ingredients. Conversely, since codeine-containing medications are much more tightly regulated in the US, and heroin is much more widely available/affordable, it's not likely for krokodil use to catch on in the US.[[/note]] [[NightmareFuel This stuff can result in flesh just rotting and corroding right off, right down to the bone]]. For more absolute horror, it is ''incredibly'' addictive, which means that using it once may prevent you from stopping even as your skin rots off. Most krokodil users don't live more than 3 years after they start using it, and those that do survive and manage to stop are often permanently disfigured.

Added DiffLines:

** One of the problems of krokodil use is that the high just doesn't last very long, forcing users to just keep cooking and injecting it again and again, exacerbating the damage.
* Similar to the above, long-term methamphetamine use can damage teeth, cause skin lesions, and so on. These effects are generally not the result of pure methamphetamine--they are from the corrosive chemicals used to produce the methamphetamine that were not removed from the final product. (Methamphetamine itself, however, is neurotoxic and can cause nervous system damage.)
* Also likewise, prolonged cocaine use through snorting can cause damage to the inside of the nose, including the dissolution of the nasal septum. Part of this is because cocaine is a potent vasoconstrictor, and part of it is because powdered cocaine is in the form of a hydrochloride salt and its dissolution can cause the freed hydrochloric acid to get to work on the user's nasal tissue.
