* Depleted uranium, a byproduct of nuclear reactors, is used by a number of countries for military purposes. The density of uranium (which is much higher than steel or lead), along with its propensity for spontaneous ignition and self-sharpening on impact, are all ideal qualities for armour-piercing ammunition. Depleted uranium however, is mildly radioactive; while the residue from a single round is unlikely to do lasting harm, firing thousands of them across the battlefield can leave enough radioactive dust to cause long-term health problems in those exposed to it.

* Poison bullets exist but aren't very popular. They would be illegal to use in war are intended for varmint control. They reach major MasterOfNone territory since there really isn't a reason to use them over poison traps or just normal bullets.

* Anyone in ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' can use weapons coated with lesser poisons regardless of their position on the KarmaMeter, including a variant in armors that poison anyone who hits the wearer. The truly nasty poisons are the exclusive domain of [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Defiler]] demons, who don't ''need'' weapons.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheDefenders2017'': Sometimes, the Hand's ninjas dip the blades of their weapons in a special poison that can kill their opponent.
**''Series/Daredevil2015'': Said poison is used to wound Elektra when she and Matt are attacked investigating Midland Circle. Stick is forced to revive her at Matt's apartment using various ingredients from his kitchen. Elektra spends several days bedridden as she recuperates.
**''Series/IronFist2017'': Said poison ends up getting into Colleen's body when she gets nicked in the shoulder by a ninja during a fight at one of Madame Gao's factories in China. It doesn't take effect until after she and Danny are back in New York City. Fortunately for Colleen, Bakuto is there to teach Danny how to use the Iron Fist to suck out the poison. That he knows the Iron Fist cures the Hand's poison is justified, since he is one of the Hand's Five Fingers.

* In ''Fanfic/FateLongNight'', Queen Nymeria Martell's spear, Chrohea Thaiye, is imbued with several poisons and diseases that she can switch at will. One of the nastiest is Tanatha Rhoyne, aka Greyscale.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/MordheimCityOfTheDamned'', this is the other specialty of the Skaven warband besides being the FragileSpeedster choice. Their unique racial skills allow any of their troops to poison their weapons, and their heroes can also equip Weeping Blades (sinister curved blades dripping with a sickly glowing poison) and Warplock Pistols (matchlock pistols which fire ''poison-coated bullets''). Yes, they ''do'' stack. A Night Runner with Warplock Pistols and mastered poisons and pinning or crippling shot is a ''nasty'' combo that can leave even a mighty [[GiantMook Impressive]] to die slowly, powerless to move or fight back, round after round.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/{{Gigantic}}'' Voden can poison his arrows with toxic spores, while Ramsay can coat his Whipblade with the poisonous juices of a Juju fruit. In both cases the enemy struck with a poisoned weapon is inflicted with the Poison status effect which deals damage over time and makes healing less effective.

** [[SociopathicHero Evil bastard]] Mayuri Kurotsuchi's ''zanpakutou'' also poisons its target upon wounding them; befitting his extraordinarily sadistic personality, it paralyzes the victim's limbs enough to prevent movement without affecting their ability to feel pain.
