** Poison also appears in ''Videogame/TheElderScrollsOnline'', [[RuleOfThree yet again]] delivering another case of FridgeLogic. Poison is made with the Alchemy skill line, which creates vials to be equipped neatly next to your weapon of choice, which in turn are consumed 20% of the time you attack with your weapon to apply their effects. This happens even if you are equipped with a magical staff that shoots fire and lasers. Some learnable skills also include poison in their attack; the Bow line, for instance, has three skills morphable into poison versions.

* In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows'' it turns out that the sword of Godric Gryffindor is made from "goblin silver" that repels dirt and dust and "imbibes that which strengthens it", meaning that [[spoiler: since Harry stabbed a Basilisk in the head with it back in ''Chamber of Secrets'' it is now imbued with basilisk venom, one of the few things that can destroy a Horcrux.]]

* In the ''Manga/Naruto'' fanfic ''Fanfic/SugarPlums'' the protagonist Ume does this with her weapons, though she actually uses a strong sedative then anything lethal.

* In ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'', [=DemiDevimon=] tries to kill Sora with a poison dart, but Biyomon TakesTheBullet for her. Thankfully for her, while the poison is lethal to humans, it only makes Digimon severely ill for a time. Which is rather unfortunate because [[BigBad Myotismon]] shows up directly after that...

** Centauri actually have jeweled hyperdermic needles. In other words they treasure poisons the way humans treasure swords.

* Poisoned weapons are a game mechanic in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' and ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''. The latter has guns which fire ninja stars coated in a poison so horrible it ''makes the target's blood explode''. Generally used by the [[BlackAndGreyMorality even more evil races]], though in ''Warhammer'' they're a specialty of the close-as-you-get-to-good Lizardmen.

* There's Bruno from ''Quest for Glory I'' and [[spoiler: the same Bruno's]] in ''VideoGame/QuestForGloryV'. The poisoned daggers were a plot point in the second. The hero could obtain and even use one. Not recommended if you're playing a [[LawfulGood paladin]].

** There are enough enemies dealing poisoned attacks to make poison resistances and cures necessary. Same with the ''{{Geneforge}}'' series.

* One of the targets in HitmanCodename47 and it's "remake" HitmanContracts (The same target) wields a poisoned sword that he will use in combat if he spots 47. This acts as a one hit kill in the first game, and deals a lot of damage in the remake. In the remake, 47 can take the sword, and use it against guards, although it's not a very good idea, as the sword cannot be hidden or taken into other levels. In addition, the target's personal bodyguard is immune to the sword, either for unexplained reasons or [[Kevlard]].

* A recent development called Dense Inert Metal Explosive (DIME) uses powderized tungsten alloys to limit the size of an explosion while maintaining lethality. While intended to reduce collateral damage, there are concerns that the metal particles ejected by the explosion could potentially be highly carcinogenic.

* In some versions of ''{{Tristan and Isolde}}'', Tristan is poisoned by the Irish knight Morholt's spear (but wins the duel), and [[MosesInTheBullrushes sent on a craft without oars or sail]] as a last-ditch effort. He lands in Ireland, where Morholt's niece Isolde cures him, not knowing ''he'' was Morholt's killer.

* In Michael Moorcock's Erekose story ''The Eternal Champion'', Erekose uses the poisonous (or radioactive) sword Kanajana. The toxicity of the blade will kill humans and eldren with a slight scratch. Kanajana is so dangerously "radioactive" (Erekose himself isn't sure if it's radioactive or supernatural) that it needs to be kept in sheathe and can only be safely used by him.
