* ''Franchise/HarryPotter''. Poison from the Basilisk's fangs was a corrosive substance. {{Justified|Trope}} since the delivery method is through a bite.

* 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.

** 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. * The synthetic [[DrugsAreBad heroin]] [[http://www.snopes.com/medical/drugs/krokodil.asp "krokodil."]] (Disturbing image warning) So called 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.

** Note that the corrosivity of krokodil comes from the [[WhatAnIdiot half-assed chemical technology]] used by the uneducated, unskilled addicts. The pure desomorphine alkaloid that can be extracted from raw krokodil has no such effects, it's essentially the same thing as heroin.
