* Chemo in TheDCU is a giant abomination who is ''made'' of poisonous chemicals, literally.
* Also in TheDCU is Mister Bones, whose skin exudes cyanide. Most of his flesh is also invisible, so he looks like a walking skeleton. Actually a lot less villainous than you'd expect.

** Then there's the Bleed version: Priscilla the Crossbreed was banished to what amounts to a holding cell for her Lifehunt ability. She's huge, fluffy and quite probably a sweetie, but what it boils down to is having a skill that makes you bleed out of every pore as if you've been pumped with decolagulents. You can kind of see why locking her up came to mind...

* ''VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot'' features the Poison ability, which allows Kirby create clouds of toxic gas and puddles of ooze, both of which will continually damage anything that remains in contact with them while they persist. The ability is meant to take more of a DeathOfAThousandCuts approach to boss battles, as hit for hit, its attacks are rather weak compared to other abilities, but the sheer number of hits you can pile on is what makes it effective.

* ''ActionMan'': Professor Gangrene from the 2000 series can poison people by touching them. Grinder discovers this the hard way in Gangrene's debut episode (fortunately, he gets better thanks to Action Man stealing the antidote), and in a later episode Gangrene taunts Action Man to hit him with his bare hand, but Action Man is GenreSavvy enough not to do so.

* A heroic example is Leezle Pon of the ComicBook/GreenLanternCorps, who is a super-evolved and sentient smallpox virus. Due to the deadly disease he can cause, he can't attend many GLC meetings or gatherings, but he played a pivotal role in defeating Despotellis, a [[EvilCounterpart similar, evil virus.]]

-->'''Rappacini:''' What mean you, foolish girl? [[BlessedWithSuck Dost thou deem it misery to be endowed with marvellous gifts]], against which no power nor strength could avail an enemy? Misery, to be able to quell the mightiest with a breath? Misery, to be as terrible as thou art beautiful? Wouldst thou, then, have preferred the condition of a weak woman, exposed to all evil, and capable of none?
