* In some places, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acid_throwing various strong acids are thrown on people]] (usually girls and women, in acts of HonorRelatedAbuse) with the intent not necessarily of ''killing'' them [[note]] Although sometimes that ''is'' the intended result.[[/note]], but of leaving them permanently disfigured so that they'll be ostracized or unmarriageable. (The usual target for these types of attacks is the face, and many victims do survive.) Naturally, however, many victims of acid-throwing ''do'' die from their injuries. The most common acids used for this purpose are sulfuric acid, nitric acid, and (less frequently) hydrochloric acid.

* In-name-only in the ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' series. There are prefixes like "Pestilent", "Vitriolic" 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.

* In the ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' DLC ''Dead Money'', the Sierra Madre Hotel and Casino is blanketed by a cloud of metal-corroding toxic smog. Possibly {{justified}}: [[spoiler: The Cloud's purpose was to force people to use the experimental auto-docs that were on-site to test their surgical programming;]] it makes sense that it would be more corrosive than poisonous.

* Blight in ''VideoGame/DarkestDungeon'' is all over the place. Some disease-based attacks such as Plague Grenade cause it, but so do poison-related ones like Poison Dart and a select few like Digestion that imply corrosive activity. [[DemBones Animated skeletons]] are especially weak to blight, while [[PigMan the swine folk]] are said to resist it due to their filthy living conditions, implying a strong immune system[[note]]which generally isn't very effective at deterring corrosive agents[[/note]].
